Party Poker unveiled its no download poker software today (Beta) in an attempt to gain Linux and Mac poker players and add them to it’s already thriving community.
The software makes it possible for anybody to play anywhere, no matter which operating system you use. One of our readers stated “Now I can honestly say that I truly have no use for Microsoft Windows.”
Macintosh poker players can begin enjoying the new no-download PartyPoker software by simply going to PartyPoker.com and clicking the large button on the page. Make sure to use our link and enter PartyPoker bonus code if you are new to Party Poker and want to receive a Welcome Bonus of 20% up to $100.
It appears that we will have to update our old Party Poker Mac article with new, more relevant information regarding how to play Party Poker for Mac. I do think that I am going to wait until they have passed through BETA before I republish the information though.
The no download version of Party Poker uses Java and the requirements to use the no-download poker software are minimal. I have arranged a chart below for you in case you are curious about the compatibility issues of playing Party Poker for Mac or Linux.
|Operating System||Internet Browser||Java Version|
|Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP||Windows Internet Explorer 5.0+||Microsoft JVM|
|Mac||Mozilla Firefox 1.0+||Sun JRE 1.4 or 1.5|
So as you can see, Party Poker can basically be played from anywhere now. We can expect to see a dramatic increase in the amount of players playing at Party Poker as soon as the BETA period ends and real money games begin. You can learn more by reading our PartyPoker review.
