PurePlay Opens Largest Legal U.S. Poker Site to Mac Users

Millions of Mac Users Can Now Compete for Large Cash Prizes in a No Risk Environment

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - PurePlay (, the largest U.S.-compliant play-for-cash online poker destination, is now open for Apple Macintosh users. In making its online poker rooms and tournaments Mac-accessible, PurePlay aims to significantly extend its lead as the most popular place for legal online poker play in the U.S.

"Currently, well over 1 million players flock to our site every month," said PurePlay CEO Jason Kellerman. "Now, millions of Mac users can also enjoy the thrills of playing poker for cash prizes with no risk of losing money." Kellerman added that PurePlay has given away over $3.5 million in cash prizes to date -- more than any other U.S compliant poker site.

PurePlay offers cash prizes to both play-for-free members and subscribers who pay a low monthly fee. Subscribers receive key benefits including access to cash tournaments with over $150,000 in monthly prizes, individual performance ratings that enable them to play with others at the same skill level, live chat customer support and no ads during game play.

"In addition to our regular cash tournaments we expect that Mac users will be particularly interested in our hundreds of daily World Series of Poker*-qualifying tournaments, which give players a risk-free opportunity to win a seat at the Main Event in Las Vegas in July," Kellerman said. "No other U.S.-compliant play-for-cash poker site will be sending more contenders to the 2008 World Series of Poker* Main Event than PurePlay. With this month's tournament, one of those contenders could be a Mac user!"
