Pokerstars is one of the best casinos for online poker players across the world, with massive tournament prize pools outdoing the competitors. Licensed by Mount Airy Casino Resort and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, the casino has been operating in New Jersey for the last couple of years and legally operates today, even in Pennsylvania.
Beyond offering one of the best bonus programs to regular players, Pokerstars rewards members with redemption points for every dollar in rake/tournament fees. In a Golden Button Challenge, there’s a chance to scoop up to $20,000 daily. Other promotions include rolling bonuses, free spins, and a loyalty program open to chests players.
For starters, new players can access $30 in the Free Play. This comes after depositing at least $20 with a bonus code and is accompanied by a Spin and Go ticket plus some bonus cash. Alternatively, new members can have a 100% matching bonus in three qualifying deposits within a timeframe of 60 days.
Game selection at Pokerstars ranges from video poker, slots, live casinos, card and table games featuring such themes as Saloon, Stars, Marine, and Renaissance. Slots take the biggest part with such titles as Jumanji, Bonanza Megaways, Divine Fortune, and Volcano Eruption Extreme. The video poker section comprises Single Hand Deuces Wild and Single Hand Jack or Better.
Boasting a stable team of industrial pros, Pokerstars has the most advanced game software issued by Net Entertainment, Play Tech, NYX Gaming, Leander, and Microgaming. NetEnt has brought an impressive list of branded titles to the casino, including Frankenstein, South Park, Aliens, The Invisible Man, and South Park Reel Chaos. The games feature detailed 3D graphics.
Players enjoying real-money games choose their payment options depending on their home country. Some locations have more than one financial method. MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, WebMoney, PayNearMe, Bitcoin, Instant eChecks, Resorts Cage, Vanilla Direct, PokerStars Play+Card, and Skrill are just to mention a few. Pokerstars makes reasonable efforts to process deposits in good time.
While there is no guarantee on the timeframe for processing payouts, most withdrawal methods are relatively good in terms of speed. Just like deposits, withdrawal methods depend on the player’s country of residence. The transactions are secured by robust encryption protocols, so there is no chance of leaking confidential information.
Since Pokerstars welcomes players from all corners of the world, they accept many currencies for betting. To manage the currency setting, players go to the cashier section to activate the right one. Once set, that option remains as a default when placing bets. Examples of currencies to bet in are CAD, GBP, EUR, and USD.
The mobile version of Pokerstars is available in English, Russian, Romanian, Korean, Hungarian, Portuguese, Czech, Spanish, Italian, Ukrainian, Finnish, Slovenian, Latvian, Danish, Bulgarian, Chinese, Lithuanian, Croatian, German, French, Polish, Greek, Slovenian, Swedish, Estonian, Dutch, Norwegian, and Japanese. Changing the language is simple: by tapping the menu icon on Android or ‘More’ on iOS.
Email and tickets are the main forms of communication between customers and agents at Pokerstars. The links are available on the contact page. There is a Help Center with the right channels for submitting requests and a FAQ section addressing common issues. As a professional poker operator, the casino handles complaints on other gambling community forums.
Pokerstar's casino games can be played in-browse/ instant play or through a downloadable app for Android, iPhone, and iPad. In the Live Casino, players will find blackjack, baccarat, and American roulette streaming. Also, the same features on the desktop version of Pokerstars are on the mobile app, so there is nothing to miss while on the go.
