PokerStars is what happens when a betting site dreams big – with the exception of a bingo lobby, there’s virtually everything here.
The PokerStars Casino section is divided up into six tabs which give some indication of what’s on offer. The first is ‘My Casino’, which essentially serves as a sort of homepage within PokerStars Casino, containing featured slots across various categories, as well as highlights and a Game of the Week. Other tabs include ‘Slots’, ‘Live Casino’, ‘Races’, ‘Table Games’ and ‘Instant Win’.
By default, PokerStars’ most popular slots are displayed first, with plenty of familiar offerings like Big Bass Bonanza, Gonzo's Quest and Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways. The presence of some hefty jackpot slots and some good Megaways games here is also nice to see.
There aren’t a huge number of filters for sorting through the slots library, but players can easily reduce the list to ‘New’ games, ‘Jackpot’ slots, ‘Exclusive’ titles and ‘Megaways’ games.
Using these tabs or the search bar is highly advisable, or you might end up on a near-endless scroll through everything on offer.
The ‘New’ section contained 40 games at the time of writing, and it’s up to date, featuring only the most recent releases. I’m a fan of these categories, providing they’re well maintained, as they offer a good place to find something a bit different whilst demonstrating the operator’s commitment to remaining relevant and on the cutting edge.
Filtering the library to just jackpot games isn’t actually much of a reduction! There are more than 300 jackpot games spanning giant seven-figure network prizes and lots of smaller (but still substantial) jackpots. The most prominently featured are Jackpot King games.
Exclusives are a big deal for PokerStars too, with a number of tempting titles in this category, spanning new games, jackpots, Megaways and other familiarly-themed offerings. PokerStars certainly seems proud of its exclusives, with more than 150 for players to try.
Megaways fans aren’t being overlooked here, with just under 100 Megaways slots on offer, but Slingo gets notably less attention, with no dedicated tab and around 20 games according to the search function. This isn’t an issue for me personally, but Slingo is massively popular, and players may find themselves wanting a bit more variety.
The live casino section of PokerStars Casino fits nicely with the site’s straightforward layout and simple design. Games here include a few lesser-known PokerStars exclusives combined with live casino staples such as those from Evolution.
As you’d expect, the live section is well-equipped, with roulette, blackjack, baccarat, sic bo, game shows, and, of course, poker (although the majority of PokerStars’ poker is played on the dedicated poker section of the site, rather than within PokerStars Casino). There’s also a good range within each of these categories.
The ‘Table Games’ and ‘Instant Win' tabs are home to a decent range of RNG-based video titles and scratch cards, respectively. There’s nothing too unexpected about these selections, but there are some intriguing exclusives and a few multiplayer games for fans of these.
Beyond the casino section, there’s obviously plenty of poker available, with options for all sorts of players, whether you’re an experienced high-roller or a poker novice in need of a tutorial. There’s also an expansive sportsbook with a bold, clean layout and regular odds boosts.
