Mac online poker rooms Pacific Poker and battle to gain the Mac poker market share. Mac poker players suggest which site earns them the most money and why.

The recent advent of Macintosh poker compatibility software or “No Download” poker rooms has led to fierce competition between Pacific Poker ( and PokerRoom ( for control over the Mac poker market share.

Pacific Poker and PokerRoom are two of the largest online poker rooms that are competing for Macintosh poker players. These poker rooms use the new "no download" software that lets Mac poker users play online poker without having to purchase expensive Virtual PC software.

Both of these poker rooms are ranked in the top 10 for online poker rooms with a list of competing poker rooms in the hundreds.

With the online poker market becoming so highly competitive it is not uncommon to see big poker rooms targeting niche markets such as Macintosh poker players.

It is estimated that 4.4% of computer users are Macintosh users. Although this is a small percentage of users it can mean multi millions to online poker rooms when compared to how big the online poker market is.

When it comes to long term revenues generated from Macintosh users for these two poker rooms it all comes down to getting the players and keeping them there.

Pacific Poker is known for its customer trust relationship and large up front bonuses, while PokerRoom is known for its outstanding graphics. It should also be noted that the largest online poker room, Party Poker, is not Mac compatible. The real question is what does it take to keep the players happy and playing?

In a recent set of tests taken by player questioning, surveys, and polls, players suggested that they tended to play at an online poker room where they felt they won the most money.

Pacific Poker is currently ranked #1 by its customers in these ongoing surveys to reveal the online poker room where players tend to make the most money. Complete results will be submitted once 1000 players have voted.

A couple reasons to suggest why Pacific Poker might have a higher win ratio is because players believe pros stay away because Pacific Poker’s software does not allow them to play more than one table simultaneously. Online poker pros like to play 1-4 tables at once to increase their hourly win ratio.

While PokerRoom ( may have the edge when it comes to graphics and game diversity, Pacific Poker ( might end up generating more long term profits from Mac users due to higher Macintosh player loyalty because players go where the money is easy.
