Pokerstars is a home to a lot of today's online poker players. It is hard to find arguments how could it not be. Throughout its history it had been the most loyal, the most honest it could have been. Even after DOJ has closed their operation to U.S., they managed to return player's money is a very quick fashion. On the bright side, Pokerstars is the largest poker site because of many more things – their 100k Freerolls, great value deposit bonus, ability to multitable up to 24 tables at once, etc. We could go on and on but lets take it a bit at a time. Check out this Pokerstars review for all the details about this poker site.

Pokerstars has probably the most extensive, all-inclusive software there can ever be. Everything you want from different skins to most subtle lobby filters. There are many, many rare and unique features that makes Pokerstars software one of the greatest ever developed.

One thing you will never miss at Pokerstars is being able to make chooses. Not only Pokerstars runs on Windows, Linux and Mac computers there are also Pokerstars Mac and Pokerstars Android apps for your mobile devices. No matter whether you have a smartphone or a tablet.

We do not advise playing poker while walking in the street, but this is still a great Pokerstars ad:

More great features at Pokerstars include ZOOM poker, the most popular fast poker platform on the planet with games allowing you to play 4x more hands. It seems nowadays everyone knows it and more and more players fell in love with it. One unique feature at Pokerstars – BOOM. It is an option to show everyone some hand you just played – great bluff or one-outer on the river. The best is simply to download Pokerstars and try it out yourself – ability to set your daily limit loss or time limits, send money to friends, open up Home Games and all the other cool features Pokerstars software gives you.

Pokerstars Bonuses and Promotions

Whichever way you would try to count it, Pokerstars best bonus - 100% up to $600 is one of the greatest value deposit bonuses poker world has ever encountered. Of course, grinders that seek up to $2000 deposit bonuses, would be happy to see it grow in size a bit more but the amount of what you get to rake to claim the bonus is superb.

Pokerstars bonus terms allow you to make up to three deposits qualifying for a 100% up to $600 deposit bonus. After each deposit you will have 6 months to complete the requirements for the full bonus. There is no other online poker site in the world that would offer such a deal.

So, in reality, it looks like that: to maximize your Pokerstars bonus you can make three $200 deposits every 30 days and from each deposit you get 180 days to fulfill the requirements. In U.S. dollars, for every $1 bonus you need to collect is 17 VPPs. The amount of points you get for $1 in rake depends on the stakes you play.

Promotions at Pokerstars vary largely from reload bonuses to Happy Hours with doubled points rates, package giveaways to most prestigious live events on the planet such as World Series of Poker or Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure. There are lots and lots of promotions for amazing value tournaments. Some are rewarded for sticking with Pokerstars all through the years, others – for collecting points or making deposits.

Rafael Nadal at Pokerstars started playing on summer 2012 so Pokerstars had promotions to celebrate that, too. Poker players (or tennis fans...) had to send their advice to Nadal on how to become a top poker player and one of the senders collected a free package to EPT Barcelona with additional prizes inlcluded as well.

Biggest tournaments at Pokerstars

If some other poker site reviews did include remarks that slightly more big-prizepool tournaments would further improve the poker site, Pokerstars lacks none of that. Hourly, Daily and Weekly tournaments you can buy-in at Pokerstars leave no one guessing. You have surely heard of the largest tournament in online poker held regularly - Sunday Million, right? But along with that tournament weekends buzz with action when players register for Sunday Majors like $100.000 Sunday Kickoff, $500.000 Sunday Warm-up and $225.000 Sunday Rebuy.

Big Daily tourneys are also huge.

One of the highlights for new players at Pokerstars is the series of amazing free poker tournaments – 100k Freerolls. Moreover, sometimes Pokerstars makes it 200k Freerolls that gives new players two months of 8x $1000 daily freerolls to play at. Being absolutely free poker tournaments they attract huge large pools and give new players a chance to jump-start their bankroll for free.

The high spot at Pokerstars is definitely their massive tournament series that includes MicroMillions, Spring Championship of Online Poker, Winter Championship of Online Poker, Turbo Championship of Online Poker, Micro Millions and more great online poker series.

Pokerstars Live Events include their own European Poker Tour that has been running since 2004. It includes past winners such as Benny Spindler, Jason Mercier, Patrick Antonius, Bertrand Grospellier, Liv Boeree, Davidi Kitai and many other well-recognizable poker names.

Pokerstars has all the most famous poker people on their side

It's a bit like the Mile High Club. All of the most beautiful, the most successful, the most promising today's poker players get offered contracts at Pokerstars. When you sit down to play online poker, you might run into Liv Boeree, Vanessa Rousso. Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, Bertrand Grospellier, Eugene Katchalov, Ana Marquez, Chris Moneymaker and many many others. Their Team Online includes Randy Lew aka Nananoko and most recent signing Isaac Haxton while their Team SportStars includes Rafael Nadal, Boris Becker and Fatima Moreira De Melo. One thing we can promise – these poker celebrities are really friendly and chatty (if they are not mass multi-tabling) so do not hesitate to write them via Pokerstars Chat.

Customer Support at Pokerstars

Overall, Pokerstars has a great multilingual customer support who, in player's experience, not only is quick to answer but is as complete with their answers as someone can ever be. For example, if you suspect two players playing together, Pokerstars customer support will not only send you their decisions on the issue but they will provide all the proof – how many hands have the two players been playing together, transactions between them, etc. It all terms Pokerstars customer support is simply flawless.

Not only Pokerstars has FAQ in text but many issues are explained in short videos, too. Their customer support is available at support@pokerstars.com and they usually take up to 30 minutes to answer.

Deposits and Withdrawals

Sending funds to your poker account as well as withdrawing money are very important in poker world. With PokerStars you can be 100% certain that your funds are safe at any time. A cool feature at Pokerstars allows you to transfer money via other players so you can help out a friend or vice versa.

Methods to deposit and withdraw are not endless, but you can be certain you will find all the most popular ways to transfer money. These include: Visa, MasterCard, Debit Cards, EntroPay, NETeller, Skrill (MoneyBookers), Ukash, direct bank transfers, wire transfers, Checks and more.

Flaws

There are not much to talk here but one thing we would like to elaborate on. Pokerstars is a great online poker site for any kind of player however MTTs, especially freerolls attract much more people at the tables so even though there are bigger prizepools, it is much harder to win the tournament or even finish in the money. Of course, massive prizepools are just fantastic but simple things you have to consider before entering an MTT – it will take longer, it will be harder. For obvious reasons, this does not count for cash games and Sit and Go's.

Conclusion

Pokerstars is number one. We were thinking of finishing with that as we strongly believe it represents all that needs to be said about the room. The poker site features the most famous players in the world, the traffic is spinning crazy no matter whether it is 3 A.M in New York or 3 A.M in New Zealand. There are always thousands of people sitting in and sitting out at Pokerstars.

It is not only massive in traffic, it is also the most trusted poker site. Their reputation is everything and they have proven it numerous times in dealing with customers or even when times get really hard (such as Black Friday when Pokerstars was shut down to U.S. market). It is colossal, it is one of the kind, it is Pokerstars.
