Poker junkies, casual game players and soccer moms meet the new face of poker – ThwartPoker(tm). After two years in development, ThwartPoker Inc. surfaces with a first-of-its-kind online card game that boasts patented technology to redefine poker — by replacing chance with skill. The company’s announcement includes: an IGN Wireless Editors’ Choice Award for its technology, a licensing deal with Judi Online Atlas Mobile, Inc. that provides distribution on Verizon Wireless and AllTel, and a fresh, classic Vegas-style website.
ThwartPoker is the next evolution of traditional poker. It radically adds skill and strategy by allowing players to pick the cards they want, rather than being dealt a hand of chance — random cards. This casual, skill-based game is quick and easy to learn. At the same time, card players must outwit and outsmart live and/or virtual opponents in order to win. ThwartPoker’s artificial intelligence technology enables virtual opponents to judiciously select cards and bet and bluff with human-like subtlety. The company’s two initial ThwartPoker website games are Hold’em Blitz(TM) and 6 Card Battle(TM). Selected website play is free; multiplayer online tournaments for prizes are coming later this month.
A version of ThwartPoker for mobile phones recently went live on Verizon Wireless and AllTel and acceptance has greatly exceeded expectations. ThwartPoker’s Judi Online mobile distribution was made possible through the company’s licensing deal with Atlas Mobile, Inc. — that has titled the mobile version Hold’Em Poker+ For Prizes(TM). The game has quickly become one of Atlas’ most Judi Online popular offerings. “(It) is not just addictive — it is scary addictive,” writes IGN Wireless (Internet Game Newsletter) in a recent review. IGN Wireless awarded the game a 9.0 rating; only a few games in the wireless category have earned higher marks.
