PokerStars Releases Mac Software

Share this

PokerStars has just announced the release of new software specifically designed to run on Macs.

Players who have Macs were previously frustrated with trying to play poker online, due to many of the online poker rooms offering no software that supported their Macs. Now, PokerStars has turned that frustration into relief for thousands of Mac users.

According to the official PokerStars announcement about the Mac release, “While still in beta mode, the Mac PokerStars software offers nearly all of the same features as the regular version of PokerStars. The only notable exceptions are that at present the PokerStars Mac beta software does not support the Layout Manager or Preferred Seat features. Other than that, it is everything you have come to expect from PokerStars, except now, it’s on your Mac.”

We have all seen the clever commercials, pitting “Mr. Mac” against the frustrated other guy. Of course we see the similarity in looks of the much maligned other guy to a fellow we can call “Mr. Bill.” The commercials tout all the advantages of the iMac, while poor Mr. Bill just can’t keep up. Not to mention the fact that “Mr. Mac” is so much better looking and personable than the flailing myopic Mr. Bill is.

With all the glitches being reported about the new Vista operating system, and users dislike of it, it is no wonder the user-friendly iMacs are gaining in popularity. The only problem with iMacs, is that many sites such as poker rooms, have not offered downloads just for Macs, leaving many players out in the cold.

PokerStars is, again, ahead of the pack by realizing they needed to make their site accessible to all users, not just those having a windows operating system. With this new software release, now they are truly “global” as all players, no matter what operating system they use, can now play at PokerStars.

The system requirements for Macs are:
