Top Mac Poker Sites Review
I am a US mac player so most of my expertise will be on the US sites. The sites will be broken down into two categories, download and non-download software sites.
1. Download Version- You download software that allows you to play using an installable client. These sites are typically the best to play at in terms of stability and connectivity.
2. Non-Download Version- A version of their software typically runs with Java, but can also be Flash. Mac and Linux users can simply open up the poker room in their internet browser (Fire Fox, Safari, etc.) and play.
I will keep this entry updated as more and more sites are adding Mac availability somewhat regularly. Subscribe to MacPokerTools and receive the info as it comes in.
Full Tilt Poker:
FullTilt Poker was the first main poker site to offer a native, installed, mac client. Since their inception, FullTilt Poker has been the main site for most US mac poker players. They also have one of the better online poker sites available online too. FullTilt has always had a solid software interface, smooth graphics, and plenty of players (not to mention the pros). FullTilt has a full range of stake levels. There are plenty of higher stake games as well as a multitude of smaller stakes for any Mac player. There is a wide variety of poker games to play here, that are mostly unmatched elsewhere. There are many sit n go and multi table tournaments with all ranges of buy ins, large guarantee tournaments, and satellites. Sit and gos fill at a decent pace, so there isn't much time wasted waiting to play. Their NL games reach up to $50/$100 blinds regularly. There is always somewhere to play on FullTilt. Player ability varies at FullTilt Poker. You will run into your fair share of solid, recreational, and beginning players.There really isn't anything bad to say about Full Tilt. I play here all the time. I like using the customizable table graphics to get the look I am comfortable with. There are always tourneys going off and seats available, even if I want to play some Omaha. Game play is smooth, and they have everything you really need in an online poker room.They also have some of the better bonuses too.
