New Downloadable Mac Client for Microgaming Poker Network
The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) has launched a new downloadable software client for Mac users. This is great news for Mac users who are limited to using the instant play option at most poker sites. Scandinavian operator PaF is the first to go live with the software, which runs in the Adobe Air framework, and more Microgaming skins are expected to follow soon.
With only a few poker sites currently offering a downloadable client for Mac users, Microgaming will no doubt be hoping this move attracts a substantial number of new players. They already provide a downloadable client for PC users, web-based instant play, and a client for mobile and tablet users. This software features all the functionality that the instant play option currently has and players will be able to enjoy a variety of cash games, scheduled tournaments and Sit N Go tournaments.
Microgaming has been providing online casino and poker software since the beginning of internet based gambling. Having started as an online casino in their own right, they progressed to developing software and providing it to other casinos. They subsequently moved into poker and became one of the most popular networks around. Like many other networks, they lost a significant amount of traffic when they stopped allowing US players.
The network is still fairly popular though, with a number of skins and plenty of regular players. It is quite possible that they will now see a decent upturn in traffic with the addition of their Mac compatible downloadable software.
