PokerStars Rolls Out Beta Version of Macintosh Software

PokerStars Rolls Out Beta Version of Macintosh Software 0001

Macintosh users are legendary in the computer world for their loyalty and preference to the Apple operating system, even if most modern software applications are designed, first and foremost, for the Windows platform instead. Poker-playing Mac lovers received great news this week when PokerStars released the beta version of its client for use on the Mac.

Stars had been testing a play-money version of its Mac software for some time, before releasing its real-money version on Friday. Poker-discussion group were uniformly thrilled with the announcement, as it rids them of the need to use third-party 'Windows emulator' products to run Stars or most other online poker sites. The Mac version of the Stars client is very similar to the traditional Windows version, lacking only the Layout Manager and Preferred Seat features in its current beta format.
