Hey All,

I'm an idiot and need help please. I don't own a computer and conduct my entire life on my phone. I also never played online poker. However, I recently decided to inquire about @Jeff's meetup this weekend and he kindly accepted me to play in the tourney.

Let's walk through my steps:
  • Download PokerStars and create username = SUCCESS
  • Reach out to Tommy for PCF group IDs = SUCCESS
  • Access Home Game section on Android = FAIL (not working yet...or is it?)
  • Try on work PC = FAIL (no gambling)
  • Try on wife's work PC = FAIL (no gambling)
  • Try on wife's Chromebook = FAIL (not compatible)
  • Try on old Mac from years ago = FAIL (keeps redirecting to PA real money site and won't let me access Mac download)
  • Reach out to PS support = FAIL (no response)
Tl;Dr - can someone please provide the play money download file for Mac? I can't get it through the website due to the redirect. Tommy posted the PC version here

Edit: Looks like we may be able to play Home Games on the Android app now (thanks @BGinGA for the heads up). If someone is able to provide the Mac installer, it would allow for computer playing as well. If not, I'll make it work on my phone. Thanks so much guys!

Edit-Edit: I'm good to go now. If you are in a state with redirects to local real money P*, click this link for the Mac download of the .net application. http://www.pokerstars.net/PokerStars.net.app.zip

Thanks!

Their website says that the PC version works for mac, but I'm not sure if that's true in practice. Have you tried going to pokerstars.bet? I'm in NY so I don't know if that redirects, but it's what I use.

Thank you for responding. I appreciate it. PokerStars.bet redirected me to the same PA casino site. The Windows installer downloaded to my Mac, but it couldn't open. Since I can't access the original site due to the redirect, I can't get the Mac download.

I just realized you can download the real money version, and then click a button that switches it to play money. That's the setup I use on my PC back home, just so I can use BB stacks and record my hands.

I'm on a MacBook Pro and can play no problem. Here is the link to the Mac installer: https://www.pokerstars.bet/poker/download/

Click on the 'Mac' link to start the download.

Thanks for responding. The challenge is that clicking on that link redirects me to https://www.pokerstarsmtairycasino.com/, which is the real money gambling site for Pennsylvania. I reached out to P* support and they gave me the link below, which did allow me to download the .net software. I sent this to @Tommy for vetting, but it did work for me from a Mac perspective.
