One of the most recognisable brands in the world, PokerStars has expanded beyond their traditional poker offering to give players the opportunity to play their favourite online casino games in one easy to navigate, secure location. If players don't want to use the web browser to visit the site they also have the unique option to access the PokerStars Casino through their download client instead which is ideal for those that like to play poker at the same time as online slot and table games.
If it's online slot games you're after than you certainly won't be disappointed. For a site that famous for poker, we were incredibly impressed to see over 1,000 different online games from a number of hugely respected developers with over 50 of these games including some big jackpot slots exclusive to Pokerstars.
Regardless as to whether you're playing on a desktop browser, mobile device or through their download client you'll find getting around the site and launching the game you're after incredibly straight forward and pain-free.
We found the entire PokerStars experience to be incredibly refreshing and it's fair to say that this well-known poker brand can hold a candle to their rivals who offer casino games first and foremost.
Platform & Software
PokerStars offers a huge number of games from a number reputable online slot developers including Microgaming, NetEnt, PlayTech, NYX Gaming, Evolution Gaming, Leander, Blueprint Gaming, 2 By 2 Gaming, iSoftBet and Quickspin.
As previously mentioned, there are over 1,000 online slot games to chose from at PokerStars, meaning that enthusiasts won't struggle to find something suited to them. Slot games are broken down into six different categories: Popular, New, Jackpot, Exclusive, Megaways and Casino Premium.
The popular games tab plays host to well-known famous titles such as Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, Starburst, Fishin' Frenzy, Age of Gods God of Storms and Bonanza. The Jackpot tab plays host to a number of different slots connected to different networked jackpots including their own.
The Exclusive tab has over 50 of their own titles which are often used in PokerStars promotions and for free spins associated with Star Rewards. The Megaways section has over 50 quality Megaways slots and the Casino Premium has a selection of Playtech titles.
There are a modest number of single-player table games at PokerStars including blackjack, roulette, baccarat and poker (however we'd recommend playing at their actual live tables if you're after poker).
PokerStars is home to a number of fantastic Evolution Gaming Live Casino games. If you're after a classic table game you'll find a huge number of live tables. If you'd rather something a little bit more creative, you'll find popular titles such as Monopoly Live, Crazy Time, Deal or No Deal Live, Lightning Roulette, Lightning Dice, Dream Catcher and Blackjack party.
Promotions & Rewards
PokerStars is home to Stars Rewards. The Stars Rewards program allows players to earn reward points every time they play any real money games at the site.
As players earn these points a reward bar is filled, upon collecting enough points to complete the bar and level up players receive a chest that's similar to a loot box in video games. This chest is loaded with rewards including free spins and StarsCoin which can be spent in the site's Rewards Store which allows players to exchange StarCoins for real cash. Players can also use StarCoins to gain entry into Sit & Go and Spin & Go poker tournaments.
The following chests are available as part of PokerStars' Star Rewards:
- Level 1: Blue Chest ($0.60 value)
- Level 2: Bronze Chest ($0.60 - $12 value)
- Level 3: Silver Chest ($1.50 to $30 value)
- Level 4: Gold Chest ($5 to $100 value)
- Level 5: Diamond Chest ($12.50 to $250 value)
- Level 6: Black Chest ($35 to $700 value)
If you're currently at a higher level than Blue Chests, and your current progress bar is close to expiring, PokerStars will allow you to exchange your progress bar for a lower level Chest instead.
For example, if your Diamond Chest progress bar is over 50% filled and you’re within 10 days of it expiring and you don't feel you'll reach the end of the progress bar, you may instead exchange it for a Gold Chest. Your next Chest will then be Gold and the timer for getting the next level will reset.
With PokerStars primarily being a Poker brand it's not surprising to find they promote and incentivise the most enthusiastic poker players to 'Team Pro' status.
Team Pro players are brand ambassadors that are made up from online poker professionals who have found continued success playing online poker. They're acknowledged for their loyalty and accomplishments and are tasked with demonstrating what's possible in online poker with sufficient talent and hard work.
Team Pro members also have a say in changes to PokerStars, their game offerings and improvements to the site going forward.

Help & Support
PokerStars utilises a Live Chat bot which at first we were incredibly wary about, as usually they're pretty unreliable. However after asking it a question we were pleasantly surprised when it gave us the answer we needed along with video explaining everything clearly.
The bot also asked us which device we were using so that it could give us an answer based on whether we were on a mobile device, desktop browser or using the download client.
PokerStars also has an extensive FAQ section of the site that can be navigated using a search bar or by selecting a specific category from a menu.
If you'd like to speak to someone directly you can use their Contact Us Form, however it's not stated how you'll receive your response. For this reason we've rated PokerStar's help and support quite low, as it's hard to tell how and when you'll get a response from a real person should an issue arise.
