Downloading and Installing

How do I get my free software?
So, what do I do now that I have finished the download?
What's the name of the installation file?
Can my computer handle these games?
How do I get connected?

1. How do I get my free software?

    It's really simple - just look for any DOWNLOAD button to start downloading your free 7Sultans Poker software. Once you find it, double click and away you go! Once you have saved the file on to your hard drive, wait for a few seconds, and then you'll be prompted to run the software.
    (Make sure you remember where you saved your file - just in case you didn't install the poker software before the download was complete and you need to go back there later!).
2. So, what do I do now that I have finished the download?
    You are now ready to install the 7Sultans Poker software! If for some reason, there is no prompt to run the software, simply double-click on the poker software "exe" file.
    Where is this you ask? Hopefully, you remembered where you saved the download. Go into that folder and you'll find it. If you can't remember, you'll have to go and find it.
    Click on the "Start" button at the bottom left hand side of this screen, and select "search". You'll need a keyword to start the search - *poker* will do the trick. Once you have found it, click on it and install the software. If you still can't find it, give up and call us to help you.
3. What's the name of the installation file?
    7sultanspoker.exe

4. Can my computer handle these games?

    You'll need to at least have these requirements before you can play:

    • IBM PC compatible computer
    • Pentium 100 or higher
    • 16 MB RAM
    • 1MB Video Card
    • 8-bit color SVGA (640x480) - 256 colors
    • Microsoft compatible mouse
    • Standard Sound Blaster - compatible sound card (optional)

    If you have these requirements, it'll be even better:

    • Pentium 233 MMX or better
    • DirectX 3 or higher
    • 32 Megs memory or better
    • SoundBlaster compatible sound card
    • 2 MB SVGA screen card capable of 16-bit color (65535 color mode)

    If you have either Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows NT - you're good to go.

    Please note that you will not be able to play using an Apple Mac.

5. How do I get connected?

First of all, you need to be online. Then it's just like opening a regular program file. Go to the "Start" button in Windows, select "Programs", choose "Poker", and you're off and running!

Logging In

How can I log in to the poker room?
What's my password/account number?
What if I can't log in?

1. How can I log in to the poker room?

As we just explained in Downloading and Installing - point 5, go through the process to open up the poker room program. Now that you've found your way to the poker room screen, click on "Connect"! The dialogue box will appear and you simply enter your account number and password. If you haven't registered, see Registration - point 1.

2. What's my password/account number?

Your password is case sensitive, and must be entered in the same way each time.

If you manage to forget your password or account number, simply contact us and we'll help you out. You'll need to tell us your full name, address details, telephone number, and the first 4, and last 4 digits of any credit card number registered on your poker account.

3. What if I can't log in?

If you can't connect, and your log in details are right, you'll probably find that you have a bad, or slow connection with your Internet Service Provider. The best thing to do is simply disconnect completely, and go back in again. If this doesn't fix it, you'll need to contact our customer service.

Registration

How can I register at the Poker room?
If I don't want to spend too much money - what is the minimum amount of gaming credits I can buy?

1. How can I register at the Poker room?

Once you're on the main poker room screen, click on "Connect", and then click on the "Register" button.

You just have to follow the instructions and enter your email and contact details. When you're asked to enter a password, bear in mind that it's case-sensitive and you should write it down somewhere so you won't forget it.

Once this is all done, we'll give you a player account number. Keep them in a safe place so that you won't lose it! You'll need these each and every time you want to play.

We'll also ask you if you want the software to remember your password. We recommend that you only select "yes" if you are the only one who has access to the software. Choose wisely as other people can play and use YOUR MONEY!

2. If I don't want to spend too much money - what is the minimum amount of gaming credits I can buy?

You'll need at least $20 to start playing. Remember, 7Sultans Poker offers new account holders $10 free just to get you into action.
