PokerStars review

PokerStars used to be the largest online poker room in the world, serving a massive number of US players every day. It was basically the #1 destination for US players, well ahead of rival Full Tilt Poker. Its US traffic crippled by the Black Friday events, PokerStars still retains that dominant market-leading position today, thanks to its long-time strategy of targeting various areas of the globe by hiring representatives there and by promoting poker through various local-focused poker tours and live events.

Even online, there are countless local-specific events running for players all over the world. A healthy marketing approach is definitely the mark of a great online poker operation and the software can’t fall behind either. PokerStars have the best online poker software in the world today. Their game selection is unparalleled. They offer poker variants one can’t really play anywhere else, and what’s even more important: they have enough players to generate decent traffic on their less popular games as well.

The cash game traffic is more than decent at the site (there are around 22,000 cash game players at the tables in peak hours), but the true strength of the operation resides in the tournaments section. PokerStars has always been and it still is THE place for online poker tournaments. Their Sunday Million is a true trail-blazer of a weekend guarantee, drawing thousands upon thousands of players each week, handily covering its generous guarantee time and time again. The Sunday Million gives players the opportunity to play for life-altering monster-prizes for a reasonably-sized buy-in. The popularity of the event hasn’t really been dented by the Black Friday woes either. What's more, PokerStars have beaten several online poker records during their 10th anniversary celebrations in December. PokerStars Radio was also revived for a brief while to push some interesting promotions and to garner even more player interest.

Because the cream of the online poker crop plays there, PokerStars' higher buy-in tournaments and cash games can be pretty tough to crack for beginners. Fortunately, the smaller buy-in tournaments offer plenty of juice for talented and skilled individuals who do not shy away from a little bit of grinding.

PokerStars do not currently offer live support through phone or online chat, but their email support staff is more than knowledgeable and their response times are decent too.

The bottom line: If you’re outside the US, PokerStars should still be your #1 pick for online poker. Their generous cash back which gives you rake back will surely make it worth your while, even if none of the other perks touched above appeal to you.

PokerStars have obtained a Maltese license, which prompted them to launch, a site geared towards European players. Swedish and Finnish players have already been transferred to the new software. The Maltese license means that EU-based players will henceforth enjoy tax-free winnings.
PokerStars have also secured a Spanish operating license, and launched Spanish players are currently being transferred to the new domain, without any sort of downtime involved, or without any major changes to their PokerStars experience. Players will have to consent to the move before PokerStars actually make it happen.
