About Paradise Poker
Offering a Paradise Poker
download version, as well as a no-download flash poker
client, the Paradise Poker online poker
room can be accessed by most modern computers using a Windows, Mac or Linux operating system. The primary difference between the Paradise Poker download and no-download versions is that the Paradise Poker download version has a smoother graphical interface, resulting in a cleaner, more pleasant design; and the added bonus of launching the online poker room directly from the desktop, instead of a web browser.
In order to use the Paradise Poker download version, the user will be required to download and install the native online poker client. The process takes only a few minutes on a broadband internet connection; a little longer with dial-up. To start, click the Paradise Poker download link, select Save, and choose a destination folder in which to download the Paradise Poker setup file, paradisepoker_com.exe.
Most modern browsers will prompt the user upon completion of the Paradise Poker download, offering the option to run the application. If this is not the case, open the directory in which the Paradise Poker download was saved, and double-click the file to launch the Paradise Poker installation wizard.
The user will first be greeted by the Paradise Poker Installation "Welcome" dialog. Click Next to proceed, or Cancel to run the installation at a later time. The next step in the Paradise Poker download version installation process is to select the destination directory. The default directory, C:\Program Files\ParadisePoker, is a good choice for those who have not actively customized their computer's filing system. Click Next and the Ready to Install message will be displayed. Click Back to make changes to the destination folder, or Next to begin the Paradise Poker software installation.
At this point, the Paradise Poker download version of the online poker software should be successfully installed, and ready to launch when the player clicks Finish. Once launched, the first thing the Paradise Poker software will do is check for, and install, the latest updates. The internet connection speed and size of the updates will affect the duration of time required to perform the updates.
