Easter Egg found on Kobo e-reader

I just learned that you can play poker on the Kobo ereader. This was discovered quite accidentally by someone on Mobileread, and has been confirmed by other Kobo owners.

You can access the game by going to the help screen, then going back to the main menu and clicking help again.

I'm told that you can also access it by select the same option 3 times from the main menu. Could someone test this for me?

  1. Yes! It worked.
    Thank you so much. I saw the word “Poker” as the device was first setting up — but I couldn’t find it. I knew it had to be in there.

  2. but alas…. like so many other things about the Kobo, it doesn’t function properly…..
    All you can do is “deal”. At least on mine, the “Hold” buttons don’t function — so it’s just sort of a poker tutorial, letting you know how many points you’ve gotten with each hand.
