Description of App: 

Want to play Video Poker but can't look at your phone?

Blindfold Video Poker is the only Video Poker game that lets you play at work, or on the bus, or walking, or watching TV. The video poker machine tells you what cards you have and you play by tapping or swiping on the screen. Keep your eyes on the road, and a finger on the phone.

You can even make the screen black so no one sees what you are doing!

Feel the thrill of trying to win BIG against the house! Pays off at standard Jacks-Or-Better rates - up to 4,000 chips for a royal flush.

Play Video Poker in your way by configuring the game to your liking! The money used in this game is fictitious, but the strategies you will learn are priceless.

Created by the authors of Blindfold Racer, Blindfold Blackjack and Blindfold Solitaire, this game is designed for rapid audio play, and is fully accessible and does not need voice-over.

Designed for very fast audio play – you never need to look at the screen.

Accessibility Comments: 

Like the other games from Kid Friendly Software, this game is totally accessible. When rejecting cards, you can use Voiceover-style commands (i.e. flick with one finger to find the card you want to reject, and double-tap to toggle whether it's rejected or not). Speaking of Voiceover, it can be left enabled, and will be bypassed during gameplay. The only time you'll need it is in the Settings screen or when reading the User Guide.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

This game is very challenging, and most of the time I end up losing my money, but I enjoy playing it. Like Blindfold Blackjack, there are in-app purchases for getting more chips, or you can buy an Unlimited option so you won't have to keep waiting until the next day to play if you run out.
