They have their software available in both flash version and download. If you use a Mac, this is one of the few poker rooms you can play at.
You can play Black Jack, Bingo and even Backgammon at Pacific Poker software.

The games are very loose and the stakes range from $15/$30 down to $.05/$0.10 games which are good for beginner who don’t want to play with fake money. The sit N go’s have buy-ins that range from $2.50 to $100 and the multi-table buy-ins range from $1 to $100. There are also Omaha and Seven-Card Stud games being spread.
