PKR for Mac


After almost 2 years, PKR have recently announced the launch of a Mac version of the PKR poker client. This will be music to the ears of many Mac owners. Details on how to download the latest PKR Mac software as well as the minimum specifications can be found below:

The PKR Mac software will run on all Mac operating systems. Apple computers that want to run the PKR software will need a minimum of 1 GB of memory, as well as 1.5 GB of disk space and contain at least a 32 MB graphics card.

However, it’s worth pointing out that all is not lost should your Apple Mac not meet this minimum spec with PKR stating that the PKR Mac software may run on older non-intel Mac computers, but that no support will be available to players using these type of Macs.

The launch of a Mac version of PKR is a welcome sign that has been a long time in the offering. It is estimated that Mac users account for between 10% and 15% of the computer market and it is high time that these users were given the opportunity to play this excellent 3D poker site.
News of the launch of PKR on the Mac OS X represents another milestone for PKR Poker. With its brilliant 3D graphics and enticing game play, PKR poker has proved extremely successful in attracting new players to poker and it is expected that the availability of PKR on the Mac platform via the PKR download will continue to add to the considerable growth that this site has had since its launch in late 2006.

Prior to the launch of the PKR Mac software it was possible for Mac users to play on PKR, however it wasn’t necessarily a simple procedure! If you find that your Apple Mac doesn’t meet the minimum spec necessary to run the PKR poker software then we suggest that you give these options below a try (at your own risk!).

1. Boot Camp

If you run at least v10.5 of the Leopard operating system, or v 10.6 of Snow, you will have the ability to run Boot Camp. This is a piece of software bundled into your Apple Mac operating system that enables you to run Microsoft applications on your Mac platform.

2. VMWare Fusion

VMWare Fusion is run on your Mac operating system and enables you to simultaneously to run your Mac software in addition to another operating system (either Windows or Linux). Basically VMWare Fusion establishes a ‘virtual machine’ on which you run a second operating system. Once it is installed and configured you will be able to run the Microsoft version of the PKR poker software on your Mac. Last time we checked VMWare Fusion only worked with Intel Macs, so please make sure you check this out before purchasing the software or proceeding any further. Details are on their website.
