Mac & Linux
The software utilized by Poker Heaven was developed by Boss Media, an e-gaming software company based in Sweden. The Poker Heaven platform is stable and secure, with excellent playability, features and graphics. The lobby provides intuitive, tabbed navigation of all of the Poker Heaven cash games and tournaments, as well as a Quick Play setting and a searchable Find Player function.
Allowing up to five tables to be in play simultaneously, players can re-size tables and switch to another table using the handy table index at the top of each window. Another nifty feature at Poker Heaven is the disabled chat when a player goes all-in, preventing players and observers from commenting or sharing information whilst an player has their entire stack on the line.
While the Poker Heaven download
is only available for a Windows PC, the instant-play flash poker client at Poker Heaven is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems with Adobe Flash Player installed. The flash version is somewhat limited, however, players can join any of the Texas Hold'em
cash games, sit and gos, and multi-table tournaments.

cash games. Though Poker Heaven furnishes a number of rarer online poker games
, the Stud and Draw games receive considerably less traffic than the more prominent Hold'em forms, however, one can usually find some level of activity at Poker Heaven's 5 Card Draw and 7 Card Stud
