    Why would you bother downloading and installing a Mac poker client when you can just play from your browser?

    In terms of features PC Client > Mac Client > Web Client

    BetOnline are currently in the process of changing their poker software. There is a possibility that the Mac client will no longer be available after the upgrade.

    BetOnline have completed the upgrade of their poker software and and you can still play on a Macintosh.

    If you currently play Mac poker at Bovada you will be forced to move your account over to a new poker room called Ignition Casino at the end of September 2016. I presume Ignition will offer a Mac poker client also?

    Yes, Ignition offer poker software for both PC and Mac. Their browser-based web-app also offer mobile poker on Windows Phone, iPhone or Android. Just remember that Ignition Casino only accept poker players from the United Staes of America.

    are these poker rooms compatible with iOS also?
  11. Humble Servant

    Humble Servant Active Member Staff Member

    No. Neither Americas Cardroom or BetOnline Poker are compatible with the iPhone or iPad. If you want to play bitcoin poker on an iOS device in the USA then I would recommend Ignition, which is compatible with Windows Phone, Apple iOS and Google Android

    Mobile players outside the U.S. should give Nitrogen Poker a try

    No, Seals with Clubs is PC only. They used to have an Android poker client but that's not available any more.

    BetOnline poker now supports iOS and Android. On iPhone/iPad you play from the browser of your phone. With Android you have the option to download an app but I think you can also play from your browser if you prefer.

    When are Americas Cardroom going to release an Android/iPhone app? What the hell is taking them so long?

    You shouldn't hold your breath. Their CEO said they would be releasing iOS and Android software in the summer of 2016 but that never materialised. Then their representative told us that they would be ready in early 2017. We still haven't heard about even a beta version yet so I doubt they will release an Americas Cardroom app until 2018.

    It's probably not their fault, however. It is probably up to the Winning Poker Network to develop the mobile software.

    Bovada are one of the biggest brand in online gambling in the world. When they closed their poker room last year, it was a blow to many poker players in the US as they ran the largest US friendly poker network. The good news is Bovada Poker is back in business and here are a few reasons they are a good fit for Mac users.
    • Available on Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad and Android.
    • Mac requirements include Mac OS X 10.7 (64bit), Intel processor Core duo or later, 1 GB memory (RAM) or greater, 250 MB of free disk space, Flash Player 16 or later.

    • There are no fees when you deposit or withdraw using BTC.
    • Live and online tournament series plus huge six-figure guaranteed prize pools.
    • Sit & Go tournaments and hourly freerolls.
