I was talking to a member of the PokerStars support team earlier and he confirmed that PokerStars will be (finally) creating a Mac version. Actually, they have a whole team working on bringing PokerStars to the Mac.

We have a team working on the native OSx version. However, this will require some time to be completed.

The wording, “native OS X version”, leads me to believe that the Mac PokerStars will be downloadable, rather then an online web browser client. This is great news because the download versions always run better and have more features then the java web browser poker rooms.

Unfortunately I currently don’t know how long it will take for PokerStars to release the Mac software. However, PokerStars is a great company and I’m confident they will only release it when it’s good and ready.

    […] While you’re waiting for the Mac version of pokerstars, keep in mind that you can still *sort of* run pokerstars software on your Mac. There are a few options as long as you don’t mind using PC emulation software, like virtual PC or Parallels. […]

    Soon, I hope! PokerStars is taking their time to make sure everything is perfect before releasing the Mac software. It’s still anyone’s guess since they haven’t announced a release date yet, but i’m confident PokerStars will have the Mac version available before the end of the year.

    I tried both CrossOver and also ran real Windows XP using Parallels. Both work, but the computer runs 10-15 degrees hotter from my experience. So I’m just gonna have to wait for a native Mac OSX version.

    Soon, please! Or I’ll have to bet my money elsewhere1

    I have been playing for a little while on my macbook pro and it is awesome!
    Nice and fast!

    I got here by trying to see when it was actually released. I thought it would be out in November and did not receive an email that it was already launched.
    I was pleasantly surprised when I visited a little while back and when I clicked “Pokerstars for Mac users”.
