PartyPoker Updates Mac Client
Mac users, PartyPoker provides anticipated update

Mac computer users are a dedicated group of people. They love their Apple products. When it comes to online poker, Mac users have long struggled to find poker sites that offer Mac-compatible software that doesn’t require inconvenient work-arounds.

Over time, many online poker operators have accommodated Mac players. They have realized how loyal some players are to their Macs, and those players would often rather change poker sites than change computers. So, operators have made changes.

PartyPoker wanted to be of service to Mac poker players, and it finally achieved the level of software that would win over the masses in 2011. The software download was quick, many original features were included, and the availability of cash games soon led to tournaments and more.

Even so, the Mac client requires a certain level of upkeep, and as fast as Apple technology improves, so must online poker software.

In addition, the Power Series are improved and offer new mega satellites.
