The Devilfish poker client comes in at a modest 5MB, meaning that a good DSL connection should have it downloaded in under a minute. The software is Windows only, but a browser version of the client will run on Mac and Linux machines. Due to the UIGEA, U.S. players are currently blocked from playing on Devilfish Poker.
Once you’ve installed the files, you’ll be greeted with a simplistic but extremely user-friendly interface. Tabs and buttons allow to filter between cash games and tournaments and then a specific game. The table list offers all the basics with no frills, an ethos which is evident throughout the whole software package. While this client is similar to other Entraction offerings, it has enough visual tweaks to make it feel that it belongs to the Devilfish Poker brand.
The tables are simple and stylish, dressed in the red styling that compliments the entire software. Large and easy to read buttons pop up when there is action to be taken, with the standard check boxes for automatic actions also available. The stripped down theme is again evident at the tables. No avatars are permitted, and there is little in the way of extraneous extras. When dealt, the cards are large and easy to read, along with being the clear focus of attention. Overall, the whole package is very easy to use and has no major flaws.
The software is only available in English, while the Devilfish Poker website can be viewed in English, German, French, and Spanish. The support desk also offers a selection of different languages, although, confusingly, not German, French, or Spanish.
Devilfish Poker offers a unique slant on a growing network. Enabling you to enjoy a large player base, with excellent potential, while still reaping the benefits of a branded client. The Devilfish himself adds a splash of color and attitude missing from so many by the numbers of clients on the market.
