REALLY PLAYS! The Mac becomes a "person" and your opponent! He may bet you, raise you or bluff!
- Package cover

THE MAC DOES NOT CHEAT -- HE NEVER "KNOWS" WHAT YOU HAVE UNTIL YOUR HAND IS TURNED OVER.
- Instruction sheet

Convinced that people in 1984 would be astounded at the ability of a machine to play a card game, DataPak conceived one of the most boneheaded interface ideas of all time. Mac-Poker forces you to hold down a "peek" button in order to look at the folded-up corners of your own cards, so that the computer player can't see them. Otherwise, how could you be sure it wasn't cheating?

All it really does is force us to memorize card positions (in an unsorted hand!), because we can't even discard until we release the PEEK box and the cards are face down again! Didn't someone actually try to play this game after it was designed?
- Semaphore Signal #17, October 1984

For a much better poker experience on the same hardware, try Real Poker. It even lets you match the current bet in one click, instead of dragging precisely the right number of coins across the screen...

Important: This game is not compatible with the Mini vMac emulator (last tested with v3.1.3.) It requires a physical compact Macintosh such as a 128K, 512K, or Plus.

Edit 01-18-2021 : new disk image and crack by Gaël, now compatible with MinivMac !! The formerly applied patch was not functional for the first version of Mac-Poker (only Mac-Poker II version). Enjoy !

There's a sex joke in that title somewhere!

Can confirm this also works on a real Mac SE and Classic.
