online poker gaming service already had a Mac OS X-native software application that allowed you to play on the service in “free-money” games, just for fun. Now the service has upped the ante with a new version that lets players bet with real money.
The real money version lets Mac users play single table games. PartyGaming said it will soon add tournament capability to the Mac client. Existing users can just download the new Mac version and log in using their account information.
PartyPoker.com boasts up to 100,000 simultaneous players during peak hours — the service claims a membership of more than 17 million players in total. The company claims it deals over 10 million hands a day in 185 countries, with poker variations including Texas Hold’em, Omaha and 7 Card stud.
