PKR players that prefer Apple computers had something to cheer about this week.

The online poker room released a Mac-compatible version of its software to Apple users world-wide.

"We are delighted to bring our award-winning software to Apple Mac users - who account for more than 10% percent of the home computer market," said CEO Malcolm Graham.

"With our community always at the forefront of our minds, we've moved in response to popular demand from some of our fan base who were, until now, unable to play PKR on their systems."

Players will find the Mac release offers all the features of the Windows-based version including the PKR 3D graphics interface and embedded casino games that can be played in the client while waiting for a hand to finish.

The software will run on any Intel-based Mac running Leopard or Snow Leopard operating systems.

PKR is just one of many online poker rooms that have added Mac-compatible software over the last two years. Currently most of the major online poker rooms including Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars and UltimateBet offer Mac-compatible software.

The software upgrade marks another milestone for PKR, which registered its three millionth player last month.

The minimum requirements for running PKR on Apple computers is substantially higher than Windows-based machines with the specs requiring 1 GB of ram and 1.5 GB of hard drive space. To learn more click here.
