App design & features
The PokerStars app (for both Android & iOS) has had a massive update in 2017. It is so much better than the previous version; in fact, we would go as far as to say it is one of the best on the market. The app looks miles better than most of the competition, and it is so easy to use, even a complete novice can download and be playing within minutes. Log in, and you enter the colourful lobby of the app. You can choose here if you want to play for Real or Play money. I don’t think we will need to explain what the difference between the two is, but just in case…………Real money option is where you play against other players for real money. You can win and lose real money.
You need to add funds to your account to play for real cash. Play money is just that, play for as long as you like without having to deposit or use real cash. Now that is cleared up…………. It’s easy to navigate around the app thanks to its simple design. The graphics are brilliant, and overall gameplay on the app is a real joy. The main menu is located on the left of the app, and here you can access the various poker games on offer.
You can also see your Stars Rewards (see below) play in the PokerStars casino (covered below) and bet on Sports. There is also the option to play Vegas-style games, purchase tickets for tournaments, see challenges, and even leader boards.
- The biggest name in world poker
- Trusted worldwide brand

The poker is what we are here for, and you can find an enormous list of games to play. Click on the poker tab, and on the new page, you can see the big list of poker available to play. Game types are covered below, but there are loads! More to play than any other poker app. If English isn’t your native language, don’t worry. PokerStars app supports several languages so you can play and understand the game! There is a search feature on the app so you can narrow table choice down and find where you want to play. Select your game type, currency, limit, number of players, buy in, and more so you can narrow down your choice. You can also register for tournaments happening in the future too.
The tables are among some of the best we have seen. They are clean, well laid out, and provide all the information you need to play a successful game. Each customer can choose an avatar for their player, and when you sit at the table, you can see your name and avatar. A handy chat box is at the bottom of the page so you can see what has happened in the game and also speak to fellow players. The PokerStars app supports multi-tabling so you can play on up to 4 tables at once; some larger devices will allow five tables. You can use the ‘Find your seat’ feature on the app to narrow down your tables and find a seat to play at quickly and easily. Should you ever have any issues, PokerStars support is on call to help 24 hours a day, and they can be accessed on the app.
Stars rewards are PokerStars’ very own reward program for players. You can play and earn reward points every time you play real money games. All you need to do is collect enough points to complete your progress bar, and you will win a chest loaded with rewards. These include StarsCoin and free plays, excellent live event packages, tickets to online events with big money to be won, thousands in cash, and much more.
We do love the design of the mobile apps from PokerStars, but they still fall behind the GGPoker app in terms of design and usability.
Available Game Types
You will be hard-pressed to find a poker app on the market that packs more in than the Android app from PokerStars. The choice of games is breathtaking, and you will find standard variations of Texas Hold ’em, Omaha poker, Stud poker, Knockout Poker, and PokerStars’ very own format called Zoom plus the brand new “Power up poker”.
We all know about Texas Hold ’em, Omaha poker, Stud poker, and how to play, if not, there are tutorials you can view on the app and online to help you play.
You can, of course, play in Tournament poker on the app. There are always loads of tournaments available from large multiplayer tournaments or a Sit & Go’s where you can win up to $1,000,000 in minutes.
Sit and Go tournaments are the most popular type of tournament on the PokerStars app and website. The tournaments start as soon as a certain number of players are registered. The PokerStars app allows participating in single-table and multi-table Sit&Go tournaments with 6 to 180 opponents. The downside to playing in these tournaments, as opposed to say a cash table and ZOOM poker, is that you have to play the tournament to the end to not lose your money.
In a Zoom tournament (available to play via the app or online), you can fold your hand and immediately move to a new table with new opponents. These are selected randomly from the entire pool of players who have entered the tournament. If you prefer, you can even use the ‘Fast Fold’ button to fold before it’s your turn to act. This makes it a fast poker format, as you don’t have to wait around for each hand to play out before playing the next one. It’s super quick and super fun.
Power up poker is also available to play via the app. It’s a new, unique twist on Hold ’em. You can give your hand the edge in this very different version of poker. You can change or destroy certain cards, take a peek at the deck, defend against attacks, and more. Each move you do requires power, and this requires energy to use, so manage your energy wisely to achieve victory. It is a game to be tried; you may love it; you may hate it! There is quite a decent choice with the operator, but why stick to just one room? You can see all the best poker apps for Android over here.
Deposits, withdrawals & banking on the app
As you would expect, a large multi-country facing outfit like PokerStars supports one of the largest payment method options going. You can deposit by – credit/debit cards, Neteller, Skrill, EntroPay, UKash, PayPal, Paysafecard, Neosurf, and bank transfer. A new feature is being able to pay via your mobile phone provider bill. This is available for most operators but not Vodafone. You can deposit from a minimum of $10, and withdrawals usually take from 72 hours to 5 days. Just head to the cashier option on the app to make any deposits or withdraw your winnings.
New customers aged 18 and over can play real money poker at www.pokerstars.com. They run regular new player offers where you can pick up bonuses and free deposits and tournament entry. Please see the website, and you can get all the latest and most up to date offers.
PokerStars live chat is supported on the app. You can also email support and there is also phone support too. Any issues we have had with withdrawals or deposits have always been quickly resolved with the PokerStars support team.
The PokerStars cashier is one of the easiest to use out of any real money poker app. They offer a great range of banking options for both deposits and withdrawals. Making deposits is simple and we have always got our winnings back in a timely manner when making withdrawals.
You can indeed. Your normal browser or poker client account is the same one you use on your mobile, so all your account and history are the same.
Yes! PokerStars allows you to play with and win real cash at the tables.
This usually is caused by a caching problem on the app. Try the force stop option. If this fails, try to uninstall and then reinstall the app.
There are currently over 50 million players around the globe signed up to the operator.
You can play at PokerStars only in New Jersey. You don't need to be an NJ resident, you just need to be physically in the state to play.
