Royal Vegas Poker Software: The graphics are drab and plain, although this can be a positive when multi-tabling. The software is highly customizable, allowing three different table views including mini-view, which minimizes the table size and hides all graphics, making it almost text-based, easier for multi-tabling. The lobby is easy to browse and refreshes often. Retrieving hand histories using their PlayCheck software however can be frustrating, timing out often, not bringing all hand histories in etc.
