Great game for a online game
App glitches
by jkruskie on 2021/11/24 05:29
App consistently has major glitches. I have frequently experienced cards that never turn face up and impossible to fold, no check button so I am forced to bet or fold and app frequently crashes as soon as I buy into a tourney. *update deleted app after winning two tourneys and didn't get paid.
Great fun

Looses connection on reg
by mwagner1980 on 2021/11/21 23:46
I have lost $30 so far. Will be in middle of game and it will lose connection to verify location. This happened a on different devices not just one.
Just like all the other games
by Driverdad1 on 2021/11/20 18:28
Thought this app would be different than the other poker apps. My mistake. Amazing how many times you can get beat by someone else catching a one or two outer on the river. Also entered a Sit n Go with a 500k buyin. Waited a few minutes for other players. None showed so I left the table. Got a message saying the buyin would be refunded to me but nothing yet. How about fixing this? Get to a certain level and you will never see anything to even play. Will be deleting as soon as I run out of chips
Wow! What a bunch of sore losers on here!
by panicrev555 on 2021/11/19 02:16
If I play smart I tend to win in the long run. If I play overly loose I tend to lose. My gripes are 1, how are you bet. Often, unintentionally, because you have to drag your bet on to the table, you raise when you just want to call. And 2, they refuse to give an option to shut off that monotonous lounge music. I figured out how to get it to shut up through other means which I won’t divulge in case they figure out how to fix that because they have a sadistic purpose behind that mind numbing tune but I would rather just have it as an option. I have never paid real money for fake chips with any app. Why would anybody? They give you chips for free daily! If you blow your entire bankroll on one bet it’s a good lesson to learn working your way from the bottom again. The lesson to learn is - don’t blow your entire bankroll on one bet. lol!!!
Fun
by Chyrel O on 2021/11/18 01:41
Love playing even though the amounts you win don’t seem to add up accurately.
Bad calls
by anthonymitchel on 2021/11/17 20:53
I have lost several hands even though I had the winning hand. This has happened at least 13 times that I can remember. It makes it hard to keep playing if you don’t know if you will win!
Constant glitches
by tonybass55 on 2021/11/10 15:21
Constant glitches and issues every time there os an update.I am referring to the home games. Every time there was an update, something that worked just fine before, stops working. And when you write to customer service, They generally answer with some generic response that doesn’t help at all. As an example, the option to show cards or not recently disappeared. They seem to be more concerned with bells and whistle‘s, like stupid graphics, then they are with real issues. It’s still one of the only options, I guess best of the worst, but they need to get there programming house in order and stop messing with things that work perfectly fine.
Algorithm is the worst
by guest830 on 2021/11/10 12:37
This app is the worst. The algorithm will determine the winner of each hand based on bet size. Of you like giving money away they be all means go buy chips. These guys wrote a lazy app.
Good platform
by Fulltilt.com Pro on 2021/10/19 00:21
Have several games of poker, but this one brings me more challenges. 888Poker, Fulltilt, KashPoker... I play real $$$ Sites but this one is a great free time passer when not grinding real $.
Change ID name
by rmac84 on 2021/10/18 01:28
I love the game but I want to change my username from the guest ID given me when I first started. I’m willing to login with Facebook if necessary but I don’t want to lose my position and money amount. Please advise.
So many bugs and glitches
by redcowboyg62 on 2021/10/17 16:29
Game has so many bugs. Locked out of tourneys, game freezing, not refunding buy ins. I have sent in numerous screenshots and descriptions of the issues but as long as they are making money they see no reason to fix anything. Stay away.
Game is rigged.
by batavela on 2021/10/14 03:02
This game is 100% rigged. I play poker for long time and have never lost more pots with good hands than here. Everything is rigged with only one purpose. TO MAKE PLAYERS TO BUY CHIPS. You can play as good poker as there is and you will lose. For example. I had AK suited. Raised preflop and had a caller. On flop I hit my K. Other player went all this n I called. Guess what happened He had J5 off. On flop he had his pair of 5’. Next you know he got his J on river. Game is fixed. Don’t waste your time playing much less waste your money buying their chips. It’s official. If you aren’t buying chips from them do not bother downloading and playing this game. It’s rigged. You can play poker as poker is played, as you see pros playing it on TV but all that you can forget here. You are going to suffer so many beats to junk hands. If you have straight someone gonna get boat on the river. If you have two pairs someone gonna get third 2 to hit set on the river. IT JUST AIN’T WORTH IT.
Writing bad reviews has a price
by EyeGer on 2021/10/08 18:12
I have used this app for several years, on and off on the account that it’s totally rigged. As soon as I win big, there are no more winning hands. All of the sudden it is completely dry season until I’m down to zero. I saw this happen several times and would get fed up and delete the app. Did this several times the last several years until the last time, I decided to finally write a review sharing my annoyance with pretty much all of the poker apps in the App Store including this one. At least this one was not as bad and I could tolerate it enough for longer periods of time than the others. It is when it seems so obvious, and I find myself having to sit out or fold pretty much every hand that I get totally annoyed. After how many years and times of deleting and reinstalling the app, it is only after my bad review that now I started having problems with it. Writing to the support team does not help whatsoever. I went back and forth a few times and finally gave up on trying to fix the problem. Now anytime I want to play although I have ample amount of funds, all of the sudden I have a problem with reloading the amount back on after each round. So every time I play a hand I’m sitting there with less and less money unless I manually refill it and that’s if it’s not giving me error messages. To make matters worse, once I use all the amount I’m sitting with, I just get kicked out of the next round automatically. This happens at every play. Somehow this has been my experience only after I wrote a bad review, which happened to be deleted a couple of times too. So here is another one. Congrats on the level of maturity you handled this.

Rigged and full of bots
by smellyfartbox on 2021/09/20 10:32
I thought zynga poker was bad, but this game is way worse. Its full of fake players because they dont have enough real players to fill the tables. You get a bot in almost every game. TONS of glitches as well. Multiple times i waited in a spin and go lobby and no one joined so i went to find a new lobby and it tells you that your chips will be refunded if you leave but they never refund you. Multiple times i have had the winning hand and it gives the win to someone who doesn't even have a hand at all. The check button and bet buttons have also disappeared in game and made it to where i could only fold or run out of time and it would stand me up from the table in a tournament. You will also see a lot of things happen repeatedly that have astronomical odds of happening in real life. This game is horribly rigged and horribly run by bots. Save your time and money and look for a different game to play
Fun game but….
by Lolligirl1 on 2021/09/20 02:38
I would like the option to kill the music separately from the sound effects
Great poker platform
by BigWaveDave49 on 2021/09/18 22:52
This Is the most intuitive poker platform I’ve seen. I play GG Poker real money, but this is good practice. There are donkeys on every site but maintain a good TAG strategy and you can win and become a PokerStar. Good fun.

Cheated
by scorpdan on 2021/09/15 21:56
I had three 4’s in my hand and a four on the flop. I lost to a straight. It’s not the first time I’ve been cheated here. When a poker app can’t be trusted to get it right like that, it isn’t worth it. It’s a real shame.
Worse app and site!
by CKkkkk7878 on 2021/09/14 06:23
Most rigged app I’ve ever played!!
Bad
by DarrellT007 on 2021/09/10 05:37
Don’t waste your time buying chips. The game seems rigged to give you bad beats, and take all your chips so you have to buy more. Never seen so many quads,royal flushes and bad beats on the river. On to the next one.
Rigged!!
by Jamerssssssss on 2021/09/02 03:45
The game is rigged, plain and simple. It wants you to spend money on chips. You flop three of a kind, someone else rivers a straight. You get a flush, someone boats up. The statistical odds of some of some of these hands are outlandish - and they happen way to frequently to be a coincidence. The poker is fun but don’t expect a fair game.

Omaha Issue
by Good🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 on 2021/08/29 20:23
Before I start off, other than the issue I’m about to bring up, I do think that this is one of the best fake money poker games that is on the App Store. I myself most commonly play Omaha poker, as I find it fun. However, recently I have noticed that the game is not registering all of the hands on the table correctly. Multiple times I have had full house, a straight, or 2 pair and it has not counted as what it should have. This results in me losing 350k+ pots where I should win but the game is incorrect, or when there’s a tie, it doesn’t count high cards correctly. I would greatly appreciate if they would fix this issue as I do really like this game. TLDR: Omaha hands not counted correctly Plz fix

Game is rigged
by Tinob123 on 2021/08/24 01:05
Never have had so many bad beats in my life. You get on a hot streak but once you reach a certain tier you get bad beat after bad beat. I’m a pretty conservative poker player and I don’t usually chase but if I go all in, 9/10 times I’m ahead and I will get sucked out time after time. I’ve had more bad beats in the short amount of time playing this game than I’ve had in the past 20 years playing once or twice a week in live cash games

Money, money, money
by This Ap is Trash. on 2021/08/22 18:06
The more money you pay into the game, the better hands you get. If you stop buying you’ll pretty much lose always. Have fun playing, but after a certain level you’ll have to start paying to keep playing. Edit: Still 100% true. Don’t waste money on this app.
Lotta fun
by amdknv on 2021/08/16 02:04
The nice thing is it’s fairly hard to run out of chips. Every once in a while the game breaks and I can’t fold or something like that so meh on that but it’s rare
Love it

Terrible!!
by Slotomaniac2012 on 2021/08/14 10:59
Completely unrealistic card dealing. How can almost every hand be a full house flush or straight? Don’t waste your time unless you have time to waste. You’ve been warned. Completely unrealistic!
worst racket ever needs federal investigation
by b12345678,9 on 2021/08/14 01:23
after about 2 months of playing and winning millions of money without having to use my credit card to “chip boost” the app will stop dealing fairly and make you loose every hand in order to get you to use your credit card to stay afloat. garbage app needs to be removed from the app store and executives need to be arrested.

One of the best poker apps.
by gm105 on 2021/08/10 17:21
I’ve been playing for many years. This is one of the fairest sites I’ve played on, with quite a few skilled players. You get daily bonuses that help sustain you through unlucky streaks. Safe way to learn the game while playing against experienced players and acquiring an instinct for the odds. The site has open tables for both Holdem & Omaha and three person Holdem tournaments. Remember- poker is a dance hall girl who loves you and leaves you as your luck changes. She follows the money. Don’t bet your house.
Joke
by Packerstars on 2021/08/05 03:17
This game is fake poker. You don’t need to believe their ridiculous claim the deals are monitored by some ridiculous outside group. Just play the game and you will have all the proof you need to agree with the 90% of other users - it’s totally fake.
Love the app but can’t report bugs
by jacoblee00000 on 2021/08/03 00:30
Why can’t I report bugs? The “help” button shows me the hands in poker. The “feedback” button asks me to rate it from frown to smiley face emoji. The “contact us” email doesn’t respond. So I’ve come to leave a review! The following is a bug I’ve noticed and a design feature I want. Bug: Sometimes I win the pot but the chip animation goes to someone else. I end up with the chips but the game tells me I’ve lost. No I can’t describe a specific example. Maybe if there were a “bug report” option I would pay more attention the next time it occurs. Feature: I finished all the quiz questions. I don’t care when I win chips from the questions, I just enjoy the questions. Please allow me to reset the quiz feature after I complete all the questions. I don’t need to earn chips, I just look forward to my daily poker quiz. Wonderful app and very fun.

by Jacko101770 on 2021/07/23 20:22
I had this downloaded for 2 days. Ridiculous bad beat after bad beat with the chips they give you. CLEARLY designed to get you to purchase chips. Con!
Interface ridícula!
by Bira04 on 2021/07/22 21:29
Cara, percebi qual foi a tentativa de vocês. Foi deixar o aplicativo parecido com uma mesa, MAS ISTO NÃO É UMA MESA! Dificulta tudo, selecionar a quantia certa, dar fold, localizar informações…Se é um aplicativo de celular tem que ser otimizado pra ser um aplicativo de celular. A interface anterior era muito melhor!

Never really thought rigged till these last updates
by cashcow103 on 2021/07/20 06:03
Run outs have gotten predictable, never had to buy chips till I updated it a few months ago to this new lobby. Players I’ve never seen are pulling out wins and people I’ve played with for actual YEARS have noticed the same. I am uninstalling and I’ll check back when I’m so disappointed in life that I want to see else could get wrecked
Proof that this is a sketchy app.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/07/16 22:22
Second review since my first one was replied saying they are fair play certified by gaming labs, and their shuffle and distribution are random. While this may or may not be true, I think they need to be tested again. I’ve ran simulations with my own cards in person and the results don’t match up. With a sample of 100 hands in the app, 76 hands were won on the river. (I only used hands where two or more players went to the river and showed) For example, two pair is leading up to the river, river comes and someone without a pair hits a gut shot straight. 57 of those were runner runner where they had for example 6 8 10 on the flop, and then comes 7 and 9 on the turn and river. After doing 100 hands in real life, 12 hands were won by the river card, 6 of those hitting two pair or making a boat. Two gut shot straights, and two flushes. Not a single runner runner. Obviously these results will vary, but Kind of off putting that when done in person with truly random cards, there were 64 more hands won on the river in the app. If you still want to use the app, just call everything, especially when you have no business doing so.
fun but weak system
by baed pocker playaer on 2021/07/16 08:09
it is meant to be fun and it is, it takes away the value if chips so u can do crazy moves, but if u do, u sacrifice time. this allows you to be more careful and gives incentives. i dont mind the pattern randomness as it is fun but when there is too many calculated winning pots the system glitches and picks high card. many times where people should have won with straights, the high card takes over. i dont know why but maybe include a replay pic of the last game in the next round so people arnt mis informed about how the actual game should be like and give people a chance to give good feedback.
The cards are not randomly generated.
by coltey123 on 2021/07/07 00:05
I have played so many times, and it seems my opponent always gets the better cards

by LittleWilb on 2021/06/20 22:59
I’ll make this to the point. You’re better off just raising with the worst hand cause they will reward you no matter what! Had to delete this app before I broke my phone. You can put play everyone and it simply doesn’t matter. Put your money in the with the best, 9-1 favorite, you’ll lose 80% of the time. Do not download this app!

Unrealistic today the least
by catskillshunter on 2021/06/14 16:52
I statistically analyzed the winning percentages funds an algorithm of sorts allowing 2 seats to win 85% of the hands for a set period of time then shift the 2 seats. Lucky for you if you are in these two seats but not realistic poker compared to actual table play. They tell you a third party certification of their dealing process but have really nothing to show that is a fact. Hope a realistic version of online poker developed an app accepted by all platforms for circulation and distribution.
Crazy Bad Beats

If you know how to play poker don't even bother. You will see the most ridiculous draw outs you've ever seen in your entire life. You will begin by winning winning winning and then one day all of a sudden you will never be able to win again until you buy chips. Stay away
Tourneys don’t pay
by HIKER_AK on 2021/06/03 09:25
The 3 person tournaments pay out only 1.5 or 1x the buy-in. Kind of ridiculous. Should be no less than 3x the buy in as the minimum.
Rigged
by kstoked on 2021/06/01 17:22
I been playing this game for years, I’m talking 5 -6 years. And I always buy the 30,000,000 chip package. I’m really good at poker and played almost 2 times a week for over 10 years. On this game Youll have a hot streak then, BOOM you lose back to back to back. I’ve lost 15,000,000 in a day and I played for hours and all I usually play is AA,KK,JJ,QQ and sometimes 89 or J, 10 ya know especially if up in chips. Well here lately after I bought 39,000,000 chips I have lost hand after hand after hand. And I’m talking all I’m playing is face cards. And it’ll never hit. I see a pattern too. 1 day I’ll hit hit hit, then the next I’ll lose lose lose. But you lose more than you can Gain. Any poker player can tell you that. . I just feel like they’ll give you a hot streak. Then take everything away from you so you have to buy more. And I’m upset about this cause I’ve spent Hundreds of dollars on this game. And the pattern never fails. I won’t spend another dime on this till the manager/ Developer of this game makes it right!! They didn’t respond to me last time. So I hope this gets there attention if they actually care
Horrible and sad
by disgusted4321 on 2021/05/29 01:19
If you’re looking for a fun fair game you’ve come to the wrong spot. The dealing is so obviously rigged it makes me sad this is the best they can come up with. No wonder everyone bashes this app. Look in the mirror poker stars!! You can be better than this. Knock off the rigged dealing. Rigged dealing is for losers.
Lost access and customer service
by Girim on 2021/05/27 14:44
I have lost access to my account which has all credits and purchases accumulated since two years. I have contacted customer service in email, no resolution. As I am addicted to this game, I started using the new login, started fresh. As usual I have make few purchases recently. I again get same error since yesterday. I lost credits/points/purchases. A month back they said they are working on it, no response on later communications. Also, when I deleted app yesterday to try if it works reinstalling, after I deleted there were missing 78 notifications popped up from other apps.it looks like this app was stopping or accessing other information on my phone.
Pretty good
by EllieBerk on 2021/05/25 02:07
It was pretty good it’s just that when you’re around chipsets like they don’t carry it back for a little while. So it’s pretty good but honestly I feel like they should give you more chips.
Just play bingo
by Perplexed10 on 2021/05/23 22:30
The poker stars algorithm rewards bad play and basically makes poker into bingo. If you want to actually play poker, not bingo, try another app, invite some friends over, or go to a casino. :/
Bad customer service
by lola lucy on 2021/05/20 12:51
I have been playing for over 3 years and have spent a lot of money here. Just spend $180 and lost it as I couldn’t sign in, which normally I didn’t have to sign in. Another persons email popped up and it said I was signed into another device. Not true. My only device was the phone I was on. When I rebooted the app it then had 100,000 points and I had millions, back to level 1 and I was on level 505!!! I was my game back with the $180 of coins I just purchased and my 505 level back.
Used to be Good
by B MOMO on 2021/05/18 02:35
I used to play somewhat regularly. About 3 weeks ago the App wouldn’t let me in, said I was logged in elsewhere (which is not the case). Reached out to Support several times who were not able to offer any help - said they were fixing things, but nothing is happening. I lost a big pile of fake money that I cant be too upset about, but its the lost time of building up my stack. Now looking for another Poker App to start over on.
Don’t spend any money with this app
by TexasTattoo on 2021/05/17 21:51
I don’t recommend this game. Especially if you buy chips. Constant log in issues.
New app is a step backwards
by Stscha on 2021/05/17 11:54
The new app is disappointing for tournament play because it doesn’t allow you to see other players tables, player listings and positions and change table settings at the table. Not sure what is good about the new app at all
Locked out of my account and lost everything.
by taylor rogich on 2021/05/17 04:25
Don’t judge me, but I spent money on this game, just to open the app one day and be locked out of my account because “I’m signed in from another device” (I’m not). Very disappointed and don’t even know how to contact customer support to fix it. Be wary of spending your money.
Rigged terrible unrealistic poker

If you have ever payed any real poker or play regularly then this will be furthest away from that possible. You will see every flop have some kind of straight. And if you think the 5 rivers in a row giving a straight is not possible...on this game it is. Also game breaks down. You get close to making the top league and all of sudden you cant sign in. When you reach out to them they will lie and say how they have had their card randomization audited by some 3rd party. Or how their developers are working in whatever glitch you find. All in all game is garbage but luckily for fake chips.
Not bad
by jponton3 on 2021/05/17 00:41
I like the game except that the winning hand is only display for a split second before it disappears. I don’t know what the winning hand was on most hands. It rally needs to be displayed longer or a box in the corner showing the last hand.
Donkey

If there was a game for donkeys this is it. I’ve played poker for a long time and I’ve never had so many bad beats, donkey players and bad luck at poker. I guess if you don’t spend real cash to buy your chips you get no love on this crappy game!!!

It does not allow you to login on your IPhone. It keeps saying I am logged in on another device which I am not: My Dad also has an IPhone and a stars Account and it does the exact same thing on his Account. For at least two weeks neither of us have been able to login or play with are IPhones. I notified them of the problem two weeks ago and nothing has been done to fix the problem. Does anyone have any idea if they ever plan on fixing the problem or do they just not give a FK, 😵🤔😵. I am thunder_jime On poker stars
DO NOT PURCHASE PLAY CHIPS!!!
by BIG_SUCKER on 2021/05/11 06:06
DO NOT PURCHASE PLAY CHIPS!!! I spent $99.99 to purchase $331 million in play chips and within 6 hours I was unable to login because it said I was already logged in from a different device (which I obviously wasn’t). So someone else somehow stole my identity and is playing with my chips.
Fake
by so rigged it's laughable on 2021/05/11 04:56
Do not play this game. This game is so rigged it’s beyond laughable. If you have free chips go ahead and play but don’t ever buy any chips. At the risk of sounding redundant this game is so rigged.
Bad software
by Hersha5 on 2021/05/09 03:17
It works when you deposit money but when you try to play a game the software will freeze no matter how many times you log in/out and reinstall the app. You will spend the game disconnected and with a frozen screen and pokerstars will not refund you your money lost in tournaments because of there software problem.

Hate the upgraded app
by rundvu on 2021/05/01 20:28
I can't believe anyone thinks this upgrade is an improvement. I loved the PokerStars app before this upgrade. I'm just hoping PokerStars doesn't change the computer format. Hate the upgrade!
Don’t buy chips
by Edro Navissi on 2021/04/30 11:58
I wouldn’t say that it’s one of those games you want to pay money to for fake money, but it is fun! Don’t worry about earning chips though. You can get them by playing the game, of course. It’s pretty cool for a virtual poker casino when you can’t go and play it in real life, so it’s fun even for kids who are interested in the game.
so far so good

Cheating game

The worst
by luckygolfer2 on 2021/04/19 04:57
This isn’t realistic. If someone has a better rating in the game they always get the better hand. Even when you have a really good hand. The person with the higher rating always gets lucky on the river.
Rigged Game that wants to take your money.
by mattpdemp on 2021/04/18 00:13
If you like playing poker on a platform that rigs it’s shuffle algorithm strategically to get you to purchase more of their fake money (with real money) so that you can continue to lose more of their fake money, than this the app for you! Don’t worry about the investigations and lawsuits against them! Just give them your money! What more could you ask for?????

by LootLaker on 2021/04/16 20:48
Can’t fix the same problem I’ve been having for a year where it deals you the cards and can’t see them. You can update the ads on the game every day though. Nice
Rigged (suspected)
by Cj100019015 on 2021/04/14 00:12
Suspect that game is rigged against the player - would not recommended. The method follows this structure: 1) hot streak for 10-15 hands (win lots of pots) 2) cold streak for 20-30 hands 3) coolers / traps laid for 10-15 hands (FH loses to quads, etc.) I’ve confirmed with other players that they’ve had a similar experience. If you’re looking for quality poker, this isn’t it.

Decent but needs improvement
by Psyquestor on 2021/04/06 12:13
The desktop app has many useful widgets that help a player win. None are available on the app. I’d like some added, as some tournaments are better played without being tied to the desktop. Chief gripe: can’t access blackjack on mobile app, but can on desktop. Why?
Super Spin Joke
by Feline_Nine on 2020/11/12 19:36
Wanted to get some free coins today and there was an option to rate Poker Stars to get a free ‘Super Spin, wish I didn’t spend my time giving this app a good review as the did not give me my free spin. Also, there default in-game responses are pretty cheesy like “I’m so tight now” or “Can’t call that much” when you fold etc., but not to big of an annoying deal. When you do their daily spin on the wheel I get $5,000 to $7,000 chips, and will get something more like $25,000 out of a million maybe a couple times a year.
Needs a fix
by Guest Pokerstar on 2018/08/19 14:40
The game is fun and it’s easy to use. The only reason I gave this a 3 star review is the profile system. It asked for my Facebook log in info or to create a guest account. I don’t like linking everything to my Facebook so I created the guest account. Played the game for a few weeks and then they closed the account. So I went into the settings and attempted to log in with Facebook. It didn’t work. Contacted customer support and they said I have to create another account. Why allow someone to create the guest account if you can’t use it long term/log in to facebook later? Not the worst thing in the world but it is annoying when you had 2 million chips saved up. I won’t be creating another account or playing this anymore. If you want to play this game, immediately create a profile using your Facebook info. Update: Changed to 4 stars since the developer reached out to correct the mistake. To the developer: My guest account was Goodflush570. I wasn’t able to link this to my Facebook after it got closed so I never made an actual account. Since I’ve removed the app I imagine the account is no longer active. Hopefully you’re able to see what happen. I appreciate the reimbursement but I don’t think I’ll be getting the app again.
Do not buy chips
by merzap on 2021/03/23 01:38
I bought chips and they didn’t even give me the right amount of what I bought, after contacting the developer they gave me the difference (that was only after some back and forth emails). It was frustrating to say the least, due to the fact that if your the developer and you have my player ID you should know what was deposited in my account and what deal I bought. Not with poker stars play, they were questioning me as if I had not bought the chips with the deal I had stated. The good thing is I had taken screen shots of the play chips and the deal f not I feel they would had brushed me off. Another thing I noticed and this what has me displeased, It will play the hand and at the end you lost when you have the winning hand. The system did it on several occassions, I thought that I was wrong but on my last hand tonight I had triple 9 before river at the end of the hand it said the other player one with two pairs 10 2. How is that possible? do not waste your money. It would be nice if they had like poker stars lite or poker starswhere if you tap at the chat you can see what other players had in that hand and the id for that hand that way we could contact the developers.
Rigged
by kstoked on 2021/06/01 17:22
I been playing this game for years, I’m talking 5 -6 years. And I always buy the 30,000,000 chip package. I’m really good at poker and played almost 2 times a week for over 10 years. On this game Youll have a hot streak then, BOOM you lose back to back to back. I’ve lost 15,000,000 in a day and I played for hours and all I usually play is AA,KK,JJ,QQ and sometimes 89 or J, 10 ya know especially if up in chips. Well here lately after I bought 39,000,000 chips I have lost hand after hand after hand. And I’m talking all I’m playing is face cards. And it’ll never hit. I see a pattern too. 1 day I’ll hit hit hit, then the next I’ll lose lose lose. But you lose more than you can Gain. Any poker player can tell you that. . I just feel like they’ll give you a hot streak. Then take everything away from you so you have to buy more. And I’m upset about this cause I’ve spent Hundreds of dollars on this game. And the pattern never fails. I won’t spend another dime on this till the manager/ Developer of this game makes it right!! They didn’t respond to me last time. So I hope this gets there attention if they actually care
Garbage
by Cainsofoxford on 2019/03/31 23:46
It’s hard enough to sharpen your game playing with play chips because people will call you down with nothing. It’s COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE to sharpen your game with this rigged app. First off, their claim that the card generator is definitionally incorrect. There is absolutely nothing random about computers. Computers only do what they are told to do or programmed to do. And with this app, it’s completely ridiculous. I’m assuming that they program it to create “exciting” hands. About 75 percent of hands are decided on the river. There are an insanely disproportionate number of hands that contain flush over flush, set over set, etc. if you flop top pair, you can bet your life that the other two cards match someone’s hole cards. It seems that I am on the losing end of these rigged hands most of the time but I also have won several hands in the same ridiculous fashion. There’s just no possible way that all of these crazy wild hands that are decided on the river are random. Also DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY BONUS CHIPS FROM THIS APP. I did this on three occasions and after each time, I lost EVERY SINGLE TOURNANENT I entered until the chips were gone (lost 17 straight tournaments one time). Do not waste your time!
Proof that this is a sketchy app.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/07/16 22:22
Second review since my first one was replied saying they are fair play certified by gaming labs, and their shuffle and distribution are random. While this may or may not be true, I think they need to be tested again. I’ve ran simulations with my own cards in person and the results don’t match up. With a sample of 100 hands in the app, 76 hands were won on the river. (I only used hands where two or more players went to the river and showed) For example, two pair is leading up to the river, river comes and someone without a pair hits a gut shot straight. 57 of those were runner runner where they had for example 6 8 10 on the flop, and then comes 7 and 9 on the turn and river. After doing 100 hands in real life, 12 hands were won by the river card, 6 of those hitting two pair or making a boat. Two gut shot straights, and two flushes. Not a single runner runner. Obviously these results will vary, but Kind of off putting that when done in person with truly random cards, there were 64 more hands won on the river in the app. If you still want to use the app, just call everything, especially when you have no business doing so.
Finally had to delete
by Tape Doctor on 2019/05/11 14:08
Played for a year. I have noticed what must be random patterns according to all these poker apps including yep this one and read reviews of others that say same thing. Get a lot of beginners luck. See a lot of miracles on the river. See a lot of spin & go where you check all the way through with 6,7 unsuited and the winner has 7,8. Seen a lot of trips on the flop, get a full house and someone always has four of a kind. See a lot of bad luck after you buy chips. Seen a lot of bad beats including losing to three full houses in one session. Seen a lot of top pair hole cards where everyone folds before you can make a bet. Have been on both sides of all these but mostly the wrong side. Rigged or not and I notice that the developer does not say they have been certified by some independent fair play organization - which WSOP say they have and post every time someone writes a review like this one. In the end, if you want to spend money being entertained, then go for it. I went on a bad losing streak and deleted the app after I lost on a straight to a flush on the river. I am going to go back to playing with real cards shuffled by real people.
Glitches and patterns
by Geezuskereist on 2018/02/11 23:03
Was skeptical of new software (old PokerStars player) but gave it a shot. Not bad for a play money app. I have come across a couple of glitches that aren’t frequent but aren’t rare either where the check button doesn’t come up forcing you to bet or neither the check nor the bet button comes up - annoying but not often enough to hate playing. What I got into though was the leagues portion of the game. Unfortunately, I’m noticing that it doesn’t log all my tournament wins. I won several the night before and I come back today to a 0 balance (and yes, this was after the old league stats ended and should have been counted on new league) very disappointing. Also, they really should eliminate the 1.5x tourney prize on these games - but that’s just my opinion. Also starting to notice patterns of repeated odds beating by certain players meaning time after time in the same tournaments they defy odds to win. Not just the occasional bad beat but runner runner over and over again (and runner runner runner runner too). I understand the “Unbelievable” as one of your three default options for chat.
Not Random
by Chirnobyl on 2021/03/22 13:57
Of course the game will say the cards are random but their algorithm is off. When you hit a 3 outer at a 7% chance, it’s obvious that something doesn’t make sense. Their algorithm offers a 33% chance of winning a hand on a tournament rather than proper randomization on cards being dealt. It’s a fun game to play if you want to burn some time and money but it’s definitely not like real poker. Too many times have I seen AK lose to A8 because of a 4 card straight in the board or a 4 card flush. Not random, not realistic. Also, they base your rank and mastery level on how many chips you earn in a week. Not based on percentage of wins. So a Pay to Play player can buy millions of chips, play 1 big tournament for 50mil, lose all their money afterwards never winning another tournament, and still upgrade to next level of mastery, whereas a player with a 100% win percentage at 100k chip tournaments will never exceed past a certain level. This is a pay to play game with an altering algorithm designed to incentivize the purchase of fake money for their own profit. A big waste.
I just want to play
by Jsfhfjajah on 2020/04/05 10:52
I’ve played for a while and I was too in my state for a while. One day I stopped playing and I used my Facebook account to log in and play and the other night I decided to download this app again. I’ve put $25 in on this new account and who knows what On my old account. I tried logging in with the old account and it just doesn’t work. I loved playing this game but I logged on today and couldn’t even play hold em which is the reason why I downloaded this. All that shows up is slots and live games and the featured games but I miss the large games I used to be able to play with 6-8 people or whatever number above 3 players there was. A few months ago this game was perfect and one of the only apps I enjoy on my phone. Now clearly there’s been an update and I don’t like it and I don’t understand it at all. I just want to play hold em.
Wow! What a bunch of sore losers on here!
by panicrev555 on 2021/11/19 02:16
If I play smart I tend to win in the long run. If I play overly loose I tend to lose. My gripes are 1, how are you bet. Often, unintentionally, because you have to drag your bet on to the table, you raise when you just want to call. And 2, they refuse to give an option to shut off that monotonous lounge music. I figured out how to get it to shut up through other means which I won’t divulge in case they figure out how to fix that because they have a sadistic purpose behind that mind numbing tune but I would rather just have it as an option. I have never paid real money for fake chips with any app. Why would anybody? They give you chips for free daily! If you blow your entire bankroll on one bet it’s a good lesson to learn working your way from the bottom again. The lesson to learn is - don’t blow your entire bankroll on one bet. lol!!!
Fun, but major glitch
by FriendlyFolk on 2020/05/05 00:20
This game is fun and I enjoyed playing and climbing the ranks. However, there is a major glitch that occurred three times. I emailed customer support and never heard back which is part of the reason I’m only giving this app 3 stars. Here is the issue: I entered a sit and go tournament, however it did not fill up for several minutes so I returned to the lobby. There was a pop up asking if I want to leave and it noted I would receive a refund of the entry amount. I did not receive it. This happened three times with a 50M, 50M, and a 10M buy-in. Most people who are playing for those wagers have either spent real money on the app or have played for many hours earning the developer revenue through ads. These glitches should not occur. If someone from the developer reads this they should know that I emailed them and my userID is RichBrag6480. I am happy to help assist in resolving this bug.
Game is rigged.
by batavela on 2021/10/14 03:02
This game is 100% rigged. I play poker for long time and have never lost more pots with good hands than here. Everything is rigged with only one purpose. TO MAKE PLAYERS TO BUY CHIPS. You can play as good poker as there is and you will lose. For example. I had AK suited. Raised preflop and had a caller. On flop I hit my K. Other player went all this n I called. Guess what happened He had J5 off. On flop he had his pair of 5’. Next you know he got his J on river. Game is fixed. Don’t waste your time playing much less waste your money buying their chips. It’s official. If you aren’t buying chips from them do not bother downloading and playing this game. It’s rigged. You can play poker as poker is played, as you see pros playing it on TV but all that you can forget here. You are going to suffer so many beats to junk hands. If you have straight someone gonna get boat on the river. If you have two pairs someone gonna get third 2 to hit set on the river. IT JUST AIN’T WORTH IT.
Rigged and full of bots
by smellyfartbox on 2021/09/20 10:32
I thought zynga poker was bad, but this game is way worse. Its full of fake players because they dont have enough real players to fill the tables. You get a bot in almost every game. TONS of glitches as well. Multiple times i waited in a spin and go lobby and no one joined so i went to find a new lobby and it tells you that your chips will be refunded if you leave but they never refund you. Multiple times i have had the winning hand and it gives the win to someone who doesn't even have a hand at all. The check button and bet buttons have also disappeared in game and made it to where i could only fold or run out of time and it would stand me up from the table in a tournament. You will also see a lot of things happen repeatedly that have astronomical odds of happening in real life. This game is horribly rigged and horribly run by bots. Save your time and money and look for a different game to play
Joined for Texas Hold’em and its no longer offered
by Oliver Rat on 2020/04/05 21:58
I downloaded and began playing this app 4-5 days ago and had a lot of fun on it. Good format, fast play, easy to chat at the table, achieved my goals for the first 3 days. When I signed in the next day, they removed the poker feature I was playing on. In the picture shown to advertise their app shows the following four play options: 1) Featured; 2) Poker (this is what I enjoyed and would rate 4.5 stars); 3) Slots; 4) Live Games. For some odd reason, over the past two days they have removed the “poker” play feature. The rest of the live options appear to be slow and are not enjoyable for me personally. Sent them an email and hoping they respond. If they return the feature, I would rank this app 4.5 stars so long as it doesn’t disappear everyone few days with gaps of no play options in between these break periods.
Seems rigged.
by Mr. Jeff33 on 2021/02/12 18:16
I have been playing this app for awhile. I have even spent some money buying chips. I have noticed as you get higher in the tiers the amount of games won decreases significantly. I have specifically noticed when playing against unranked players the chance of getting beat on what would be considered unbeatable hands goes up. For instance I go all in on ace, king with an ace on the board. The other player shows 6, 3 unsuited. First of all who goes all in on this hand but then to hit 6, 6 runner, runner. And it has happened continuously, once I made it to the top tiers. Also the app has frozen on several big hands and caused me to lose tournaments as I have to leave and come back and by then most of my chip stack has been reduced. I would suggest spending your time and money elsewhere.
Can you give a negative star review? -⭐️
by SkisaWinner on 2020/04/26 20:11
Now that PokerStars has removed the 6 player “HoldEm” tables; completely gone & was what I mostly played, they can kiss this player goodbye!!! I played this game on occasion and climbed fairly well on my own and they have removed HoldEm completely. WTH?!!??!?!? Well, I hate that I have to, because their HoldEm rooms were pretty well laid out; insta-chat, player info, advance opportunities & so-forth. Even their customer service was decent; messaging was easy enough & quick to respond. So, I hope they listen to their customers & read my and other’s reviews, (I will check back in a week, or so to see if they have) I can honestly say, that if HoldEm doesn’t return in what I enjoyed most about the game, I will dump this game & they will have lost a customer!!! And I imagine many, many others will, if not have already followed suit!
Garbage. Stay away.
by Babaju2 on 2019/06/03 06:50
This isn’t real Poker. It’s completely rigged. I had a 40% tournament win rate when I was beginner/novice rank. But now that I’m in ‘skilled,’ I’ve lost about 20 tournaments in a row with maybe ONE win in between for only a 1.5x gain and my win rate has dropped to 37%. I am not exaggerating. Ever since my rank has been in ‘skilled’ tier, almost every single hand that I raise, the other two players call me with absolutely nothing and then one of them hits the nuts on the river. I have lost with pocket aces to quad 2’s TWICE this week. After you begin requiring a large amount of winnings to advance to the next tier, the game tries very VERY hard to clean you because it knows you’re likely to spend. It’s merely a cash grab, nothing more. It’s also full of glitches such as having your cards dealt to your face down, or being unable to raise. Big waste of time.
Meh
by jackderwindt on 2018/07/23 14:35
A play money app should make all of its income from advertising(which there is plenty of on this one), right...unless people actually purchase chips(which seems highly unlikely [but not necessarily “unbelievable”])? My biggest complaint is that on the spin and go 3-person tournaments that the most frequent payout is only 1.5 times the buy-in, which is completely absurd. Not once have I played and it spun for the however many millions each one has as its highest denomination on the wheel, but regardless the least you should make back for winning is 3x your buy-in which doesn’t seem unreasonable considering the chip value is imaginary(and by winning more people would naturally play more)... maybe I’m wrong and people actually do purchase fake chips, if so then good on ya, if not it would make more sense to keep people on the app furthering your advertising exposure, no? Just one guy’s $.02.
A pretty fun one
by BrianCovey16 on 2020/04/26 13:48
This app is pretty fun and pretty straightforward to use. The primary reason why I didn’t rate it at 5 stars is because of the fact that there’s no ability to merge accounts or achievements. My account on my computer and my account on my phone were two different ones since I used the “guest” account (FastDog7W606) on app and my current account “briancovey16”. I just wish the achievements/exp and chip transferred over, I had a little bit saved up, but I’m missing those VIP bonuses!! All in all, pretty great app, but make an account with Facebook otherwise you’ll lose everything up until that point to start fresh :/
All poker apps are rigged
by card player1524 on 2020/12/12 19:22
Just when you think you found a poker app with real odds you didn’t.... the same as all the other so called certified odds.... so obviously not.... twice in one game I was one upped a card in a flush... he was dealt A10 spade and I was dealt K 9 spade but didn’t hit.... couple hands later I was dealt J 9 diamonds and he was dealtA Q diamonds and it hit and I lost.... in heads up poker that’s just about impossible to happen twice in one 10 minute game... it’s fun but not real at all... definitely just a time waster ... don’t play poker apps if you want to play real live poker the odds are nothing near the real thing.... the better you are the more they just counter that when they’ve learned you... they want people to run out of chips so you will buy more or watch an ad... so close... almost a good app... I have given up on these stupid apps
Omaha Issue
by Good🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 on 2021/08/29 20:23
Before I start off, other than the issue I’m about to bring up, I do think that this is one of the best fake money poker games that is on the App Store. I myself most commonly play Omaha poker, as I find it fun. However, recently I have noticed that the game is not registering all of the hands on the table correctly. Multiple times I have had full house, a straight, or 2 pair and it has not counted as what it should have. This results in me losing 350k+ pots where I should win but the game is incorrect, or when there’s a tie, it doesn’t count high cards correctly. I would greatly appreciate if they would fix this issue as I do really like this game. TLDR: Omaha hands not counted correctly Plz fix

Wish that it was like the good old PokerStars days.. I miss real money play tourneys and satellites can't get the numbers in real life like online and micro buyins are my flavor because I'm not very wealthy,This app seems like it started having bad beats more since I actually purchased a bonus offer I had pop for chips , I didn't think I ever would but now I have expensive taste as far as my blond size and tournament buy in size but , I lost all of it after realizing it was against me I got a little tilted and started donating my chips in my rage.. now it kind of ruined the normal play for me with the free 15-45k they dish out, it's just dull to me now, but I don't have the desire to buy any chips that seems kind of dumb that I would have to begin with.
No way it’s random
by BretV-23 on 2018/09/10 23:08
I have been playing this game for about 2 months. I love the ease of use and the playability, however, if you go into this thinking it is a “fair game”, you are going to be very disappointed. I have played MULTIPLE tournaments at all levels and regardless of the situation I have seen hands such as 3 of a kind, full houses, straights and even straight flushes get beaten on the river by hands that should never have even been in the pot to begin with. It’s a crapshoot at best. People calling all in bets when all they have is a small pair, 3 to a flush, needing 2 cards t fill an inside straight and somehow winning against dominate hands, REGULARLY. I’ll you want to do is pass the time, enjoy, but if you want a realistic experience, pass on this one. Edit—not sure what u want in regard to ID, all it says is Bret
It’s fun but I get a feeling
by 1 dogbitbilly on 2019/01/21 20:57
It’s fun at first but I must say in beginning it runs smoothly my experience is I caught a lot of good cards a the start won a good bit of chips once I hit a million no matter how good my hand is someone has better I see it cause now there’s a glitch before the hands last card so that’s led me to believe that I’m gonna most likely lose all my chips so that I buy more but once they’re gone I’ll delete it. I could be wrong that’s certainly the way it seems though my experience anyhow. 24 hours later........ so to reassure me that what I thought was true I just had a strife and was beat by one pair did the rules of poker change?? That was bs I never knew one pair was better than a straight yea there’s no fair dealing for sure. Too many poker apps to put up with such obvious cheating
Entertaining but too fast
by Якков on 2019/01/02 19:24
Fun and easy and visual. It’s free but not exactly free since you need more chips to play with better players. So chips cost something. It makes the game more interesting as players become more responsible. I put 4 stars and not 5 because it’s too hard to play for inexperienced players. Time for your turn goes by so quickly you barely can weigh your hand. And when the game is done and all the cards are on the table it’s only a second to see other players’ hands (to understand their ways of thinking) Overall it’s a very decent game especially for the regions where money poker is unlawful.
No poker
by Potatoess on 2020/04/05 00:26
This sounds ridiculous, but I opened the app today and there’s no option to play poker any more. Under the featured section, they are promoting their slot games and a chip buying event. There’s another tab for live games, but I can’t find the option to just get into a poker table anymore. I opened the app and checked it out a few times throughout the day, went through ALL the menus and I can’t figure it out. I’ve used the app a hundred times. I can’t find any resources or a way to contact them online so I figured I’d post a review here. Can anybody point me in the right direction? I am really confused why they would just remove the option to quick play from the front page and then make it this hard to find.
Impossible support
by Karatejoe13 on 2021/01/01 20:58
Have had to remove and reload over 7 times , bought 4.99 worth of chips an less than 24 hours can’t get it to open or load . It gave me a message asking me to take a screen shot to report to tech support. Trying to do that was a complete waste of time w a automatic pick your problem list that asked me to rephrase my question , Saying it did not understand?! SMH Click the green to contact a person?! Clicked it and started all over. I only invest 7 bucks but can tell you I would never gamble w any amount of real money because if anything goes wrong they make it impossible to reach them . Will definitely let my family and friends who do invest to beware. Sad . The only reason I gave 1 star is the little I played I liked.
Love the game
by srfrb3 on 2018/12/08 15:24
Love PokerStars was an old player when we could actually play for money. Government took that away from us in Indianapolis and I helped you fight the good fight in DC. Gave it 4 stars due to a few glitches, one is I get disconnected quite a bit on my cell phone, 2 is sometimes trying to fold a hand I can’t get the cards to move. 3rd is I made it through the ranks quickly to find out you get Demoted when there is no time in my busy schedule to play. I understand the lower ranks but once you reach elite you should be able to hold that respect from other players. On the whole, love you guys and gals.
The worst so far (and that’s saying something!)
by SuperSayin' on 2018/04/19 15:29
I don’t know how the “new” PokerStars apps are designed, but I can tell you this one is terrible. It looks okay. It’s addictive...but it’s garbage. I could go on all day about why. But I’m just going to say the community is toxic. They don’t have any form of fast play, so people slow roll any time they lose a hand. Call each other derogatory names. Chips vanish when you leave a table. Most of the time they come back after you exit the app. But sometimes they don’t. It was the same thing every table. Tossed my 30,000,000 chips in two hands (on purpose), so I wouldn’t be tempted to play again. It was difficult to get someone to call because they thought I was donking it. Anyhow, play WSOP or hell, any of them before you play this one. If you do play this one, good luck...
So I Loved This App but then...
by JermTheRugger on 2020/05/04 00:53
My wife and I wanted to play poker during quarantine. So I downloaded about a dozen and have been trying them out. The app doesn’t hand out chips like napkins so there are few table bully’s just throwing around chips knowing they will have a ton more in an hour. Generally, the cards seem to be pretty random. I have seen more high card, pairs, and two pairs win than other sites. And often their is no chance for anything higher than trips - like real poker. The Spin and Go Tournaments were definitely the best. That was 5 stars. But it lost a star because the spin and go tourneys say a chance to win up to 100x the buy in. I have never seen one be more than 3x the buy in and I’ve played a lot. So down to 4x. But this morning when I logged on, there was no poker to play!?!? The only options were slots and featured which had slots and chip sales. Even my daily challenges tell me to win x number of hold’em games. But that’s not an option now. I only dropped it to 2 stars because I’m not giving up hope yet that they will fix this.
Winnings
by Jason@Indiana on 2019/09/02 12:20
Each tier of buy in has a higher jackpot spin in which you could play for a large amount of chips. Unfortunately that’s never the case. Example: just bought in for 500k, and played for 750k! That’s robbery! At the very least you should be playing for the buy ins, of the players! In this current situation, if you lose one game, you have to win the next two tournaments to break even! That’s BS! This is how they get you to make a purchase if you want to continue playing, smart! I’ll continue to play until my free chips runs out, but if I’m paying to play, I’m gonna play live cash games instead of paying to play for free.
Constant glitches
by tonybass55 on 2021/11/10 15:21
Constant glitches and issues every time there os an update.I am referring to the home games. Every time there was an update, something that worked just fine before, stops working. And when you write to customer service, They generally answer with some generic response that doesn’t help at all. As an example, the option to show cards or not recently disappeared. They seem to be more concerned with bells and whistle‘s, like stupid graphics, then they are with real issues. It’s still one of the only options, I guess best of the worst, but they need to get there programming house in order and stop messing with things that work perfectly fine.
One of the best poker apps.
by gm105 on 2021/08/10 17:21
I’ve been playing for many years. This is one of the fairest sites I’ve played on, with quite a few skilled players. You get daily bonuses that help sustain you through unlucky streaks. Safe way to learn the game while playing against experienced players and acquiring an instinct for the odds. The site has open tables for both Holdem & Omaha and three person Holdem tournaments. Remember- poker is a dance hall girl who loves you and leaves you as your luck changes. She follows the money. Don’t bet your house.
I don’t need to play for my entire bankroll when I select a tournament worth 3 percent of it.
by Jeremy458384& on 2020/07/19 20:43
Game works perfectly fine. However, when you select a tournament with one buy-in, and for whatever reason the game gives you the option of that buy- in or another one that is worth your entire bankroll, and you make one false click and are then playing for everything you’ve accumulated, it can be pretty frustrating. Until they remove that option, or at least ask for confirmation for playing for your entire bankroll, I am giving this one star. I just lost all the play money I’ve accumulated over the last 3 months and want to smash my iPad because of this poor option and my mis-click. Thank You
The cheaters seem to be more and more
by Limodriverjeff on 2019/02/28 06:48
I have found cheaters of a couple different kinds Programs are out primarily in USSR players that allow the user to see all cards and cards due to come off the deck They never loose a hand they are in and outrageously bet over the top on hands they are in. The next type are players from the same country. They never compete against each other and come in to the table at close to the same time and are on the phone to each other or on the phone to a few players at the table, again all from the same court try and never bet against each other and are usually out of hands by the turn card. It’s a problem that they know about at PS and have taken some steps to return integrity to the site. I have notice some obnoxious players loosing the chat side. Some are suspended for a period of time and can not sign in and play....then are Chat-less for awhile if I see them again. I enjoy the game and can usually spot consistent cheaters
Stop whining it’s a gr8 game
by cdp922 on 2019/03/06 16:40
Read some of the reviews can’t believe anyone would complain, it’s free and it’s a lot of fun! A great way to burn time if you have time to burn, players get better hands then real poker but if you play right as if you was playing real poker and truly know how to play it all washes out the same.. it’s the only game I now have on my phone and the only one I want or need.. happy playing but if you come and play like you don’t have no since beware I’ll take your chips
Really unexpected
by zorch890 on 2018/10/14 06:18
Geese I always thought PokerStars was great and upstanding been playing on the original site since 2001 so I decided to download this game I hate to say it’s poor 😕 1) I watch a commercial to get some chips and guess what after watching there’s no way to get out ?? so I have to leave the app and get no chips BOO ! Doesn’t anyone check this stuff out ? 2) playing in a game sometimes the cards are facedown how the hell you bet when you can see cards I just laugh and say geezus and No it’s not my internet connection and Yes I have all the latest updates Ya know I hate to bash PokerStars cause I like playing on your sites you want me to spend money BUT you need to clean up some things I expect more from PokerStars!
Too much fun
by Hollywood Marine on 2019/03/26 20:33
This is a really fun app that is mildly interactive. The glitches thoroughly got to me and I was done! Totally going to delete it. Alas, I kept returning to it and learned to wait out the glitches and know it’s just an app. Unbelievable hands come through on the river but I’d say the app is non-personal and anyone could be the lucky one. More often, it’s just plain fun even with imperfections OMG. In good conscience, I had to update my former review. Enjoy, it’s just a game. :)
Don’t pay money
by Reecethwalker12245321 on 2019/09/30 03:25
The bad luck after you pay real money is in real... will pay ..99 or 4.99 on micro here and there and lose it within the week because I cannot call on ridiculous hands, when I do, there’s no luck. It seems I can’t get anything over a 9 in what seems like 10 hands, while everyone is raising their hands. The river generator is ridiculous, I’ve lost flops because of rivers I shouldn’t have lost, so for a new player, do not fold until you hit river!! The computer is hard sole, needs more generation but I continue to play because I love poker
Don’t try to take this seriously
by P hurricane on 2020/05/09 03:09
If you like to play and enjoy winning, don’t bother. The math in the app makes no sense other than to induce action. Way too many spots where you’re three handed - and feels like the same when heads up - where you either have the same hand as someone or at least both have the same card. The odds are pretty high of that happening, especially with that few players, but here you get it seemingly every few hands. If you want an app where people get punished for being calling stations, don’t bother. If you like slots, but in poker form - go for it. I have uninstalled.
Love the app but can’t report bugs
by jacoblee00000 on 2021/08/03 00:30
Why can’t I report bugs? The “help” button shows me the hands in poker. The “feedback” button asks me to rate it from frown to smiley face emoji. The “contact us” email doesn’t respond. So I’ve come to leave a review! The following is a bug I’ve noticed and a design feature I want. Bug: Sometimes I win the pot but the chip animation goes to someone else. I end up with the chips but the game tells me I’ve lost. No I can’t describe a specific example. Maybe if there were a “bug report” option I would pay more attention the next time it occurs. Feature: I finished all the quiz questions. I don’t care when I win chips from the questions, I just enjoy the questions. Please allow me to reset the quiz feature after I complete all the questions. I don’t need to earn chips, I just look forward to my daily poker quiz. Wonderful app and very fun.
Horrible for poker
by Timmymorg on 2017/11/11 21:02
I am a user of the PokerStars lite app that is no longer on the App Store. I downloaded this for a friend who got a new iPad and tried it-HATED IT. He also hated it. To be fair I then downloaded it on my own iPad to give it a chance. I hate it even more now after using it. My login and password worked, but the menu and overall feel is terrible. If you are a fan of candy crush then this is probably great. It is like the many useless slot machine apps out there. Big graphics and wild sound effects. If you are a poker player that has been using the PokerStars Lite app or their website, this will make you want to quit playing poker. I am deleting it and hanging on to my Lite app as long as possible.
Its fun
by ace14451 on 2018/11/23 18:37
Easy to use I’ve played real money when I was able too. What I like about this is there’s good players on here. There ties to Facebook I’m not thrilled about but at least they can’t multi play like on the other sites I play on three and IMO multiple tables is not real poker. You can’t do that in a casino. Very fun and interactive if you know how to play on a free site you do good. If you think you’re all that maybe not your thing
Server connection closed down & had to reset my phone due to it freezing up
by Stairway2Se7en on 2020/09/05 19:03
I’ve tried signing and it states “Connection closed by server” I reset my phone, tried it again and began loading up and the same thing happened. My app is up to date. My WiFi is up and working because I checked that first. Very disappointed because now my husband and I cannot play against one another on our downtime at the tables. What’s going on ? And since the software upgrade on your website AND apples update, the last 4x I’ve tried spinning for extra play money, I’ve had to reset my phone every single time !! It freezes up.
Hope the players read this !
by In-Ty-Sum on 2020/08/22 06:40
Love the game ! The only negative is some people think they’re on TV and take every second of their clock to make a call. I understand it’s within the rules but come on people. I think everyone would enjoy the game if you’re ready to make a call or fold when it’s your turn. However I do believe that sometimes you need the time to make a decision. What I’m talking about is that some players use every second of the clock every time. Again I think they believe that they’re on TV and some players just think they’re playing a video game......... Thanking you in advance Sorry for the rambling........... PS: I know some of the online poker has a faster pace which would deal with the slow play.
Terrible algorithm
by Fromby on 2020/08/14 17:09
If people think they are playing real poker on this, they will be in for a rude awakening when they sit down at a real live table. If you have a good hand, don’t worry, someone calling your bet with a garbage hand will beat you on the river, that is unless of course you have quads, which happens at least once a game...very realistic. Also if you play the Spin and Go MAX at a table that pays out two places it’s likely that you as a second place finisher will make more than the person who wins the table. It’s truly a great way to reward terrible poker playing.
Completely useless
by Smoke This on 2020/06/23 11:31
The game is unplayable. Nearly every time I tried to play over the last six months the servers they run you through were unreliable. Starting games or tournaments was easy. PokerStars will take your money/ chips and get you started but as soon as you begin a tourney their servers fail and disconnect you so that you cannot bet or see cards. You’re then left helpless to watch your blinds be folded until you’re busted off the table. You are completely helpless. This is not the problem of some 56k dial-up ISP. This is the PokerStars Play app which is a full on failure. Don’t raise your blood pressure trying to make good of this mess.
Absolute Joke
by neverwritereviewsbuthadtoo on 2020/06/26 14:54
I never, ever write reviews, but I had to here. This game is fun, but what a complete joke. It actually got so bad that I started to keep track of the percentages. Over the course of 2 months, I have lost 40% of the time being a 90% favorite! I am not talking about bad beats, they happen in poker...but when your opponent needs the 1 card in the entire deck, and it happens over and over again, there is something way wrong! Couple that with the fact that a good half of the people go “all in” right away with nothing and will end up winning. So fold out your pocket aces because the six, deuce off suit will win consistently!

Great game for a online game
App glitches
by jkruskie on 2021/11/24 05:29
App consistently has major glitches. I have frequently experienced cards that never turn face up and impossible to fold, no check button so I am forced to bet or fold and app frequently crashes as soon as I buy into a tourney. *update deleted app after winning two tourneys and didn't get paid.
Great fun

Looses connection on reg
by mwagner1980 on 2021/11/21 23:46
I have lost $30 so far. Will be in middle of game and it will lose connection to verify location. This happened a on different devices not just one.
Just like all the other games
by Driverdad1 on 2021/11/20 18:28
Thought this app would be different than the other poker apps. My mistake. Amazing how many times you can get beat by someone else catching a one or two outer on the river. Also entered a Sit n Go with a 500k buyin. Waited a few minutes for other players. None showed so I left the table. Got a message saying the buyin would be refunded to me but nothing yet. How about fixing this? Get to a certain level and you will never see anything to even play. Will be deleting as soon as I run out of chips
Wow! What a bunch of sore losers on here!
by panicrev555 on 2021/11/19 02:16
If I play smart I tend to win in the long run. If I play overly loose I tend to lose. My gripes are 1, how are you bet. Often, unintentionally, because you have to drag your bet on to the table, you raise when you just want to call. And 2, they refuse to give an option to shut off that monotonous lounge music. I figured out how to get it to shut up through other means which I won’t divulge in case they figure out how to fix that because they have a sadistic purpose behind that mind numbing tune but I would rather just have it as an option. I have never paid real money for fake chips with any app. Why would anybody? They give you chips for free daily! If you blow your entire bankroll on one bet it’s a good lesson to learn working your way from the bottom again. The lesson to learn is - don’t blow your entire bankroll on one bet. lol!!!
Fun
by Chyrel O on 2021/11/18 01:41
Love playing even though the amounts you win don’t seem to add up accurately.
Bad calls
by anthonymitchel on 2021/11/17 20:53
I have lost several hands even though I had the winning hand. This has happened at least 13 times that I can remember. It makes it hard to keep playing if you don’t know if you will win!

Algorithm is the worst
by guest830 on 2021/11/10 12:37
This app is the worst. The algorithm will determine the winner of each hand based on bet size. Of you like giving money away they be all means go buy chips. These guys wrote a lazy app.
Good platform
by Fulltilt.com Pro on 2021/10/19 00:21
Have several games of poker, but this one brings me more challenges. 888Poker, Fulltilt, KashPoker... I play real $$$ Sites but this one is a great free time passer when not grinding real $.
Change ID name

I love the game but I want to change my username from the guest ID given me when I first started. I’m willing to login with Facebook if necessary but I don’t want to lose my position and money amount. Please advise.
So many bugs and glitches
by redcowboyg62 on 2021/10/17 16:29
Game has so many bugs. Locked out of tourneys, game freezing, not refunding buy ins. I have sent in numerous screenshots and descriptions of the issues but as long as they are making money they see no reason to fix anything. Stay away.
Game is rigged.
by batavela on 2021/10/14 03:02
This game is 100% rigged. I play poker for long time and have never lost more pots with good hands than here. Everything is rigged with only one purpose. TO MAKE PLAYERS TO BUY CHIPS. You can play as good poker as there is and you will lose. For example. I had AK suited. Raised preflop and had a caller. On flop I hit my K. Other player went all this n I called. Guess what happened He had J5 off. On flop he had his pair of 5’. Next you know he got his J on river. Game is fixed. Don’t waste your time playing much less waste your money buying their chips. It’s official. If you aren’t buying chips from them do not bother downloading and playing this game. It’s rigged. You can play poker as poker is played, as you see pros playing it on TV but all that you can forget here. You are going to suffer so many beats to junk hands. If you have straight someone gonna get boat on the river. If you have two pairs someone gonna get third 2 to hit set on the river. IT JUST AIN’T WORTH IT.
Writing bad reviews has a price
by EyeGer on 2021/10/08 18:12
I have used this app for several years, on and off on the account that it’s totally rigged. As soon as I win big, there are no more winning hands. All of the sudden it is completely dry season until I’m down to zero. I saw this happen several times and would get fed up and delete the app. Did this several times the last several years until the last time, I decided to finally write a review sharing my annoyance with pretty much all of the poker apps in the App Store including this one. At least this one was not as bad and I could tolerate it enough for longer periods of time than the others. It is when it seems so obvious, and I find myself having to sit out or fold pretty much every hand that I get totally annoyed. After how many years and times of deleting and reinstalling the app, it is only after my bad review that now I started having problems with it. Writing to the support team does not help whatsoever. I went back and forth a few times and finally gave up on trying to fix the problem. Now anytime I want to play although I have ample amount of funds, all of the sudden I have a problem with reloading the amount back on after each round. So every time I play a hand I’m sitting there with less and less money unless I manually refill it and that’s if it’s not giving me error messages. To make matters worse, once I use all the amount I’m sitting with, I just get kicked out of the next round automatically. This happens at every play. Somehow this has been my experience only after I wrote a bad review, which happened to be deleted a couple of times too. So here is another one. Congrats on the level of maturity you handled this.

Rigged and full of bots
by smellyfartbox on 2021/09/20 10:32
I thought zynga poker was bad, but this game is way worse. Its full of fake players because they dont have enough real players to fill the tables. You get a bot in almost every game. TONS of glitches as well. Multiple times i waited in a spin and go lobby and no one joined so i went to find a new lobby and it tells you that your chips will be refunded if you leave but they never refund you. Multiple times i have had the winning hand and it gives the win to someone who doesn't even have a hand at all. The check button and bet buttons have also disappeared in game and made it to where i could only fold or run out of time and it would stand me up from the table in a tournament. You will also see a lot of things happen repeatedly that have astronomical odds of happening in real life. This game is horribly rigged and horribly run by bots. Save your time and money and look for a different game to play
Fun game but….

I would like the option to kill the music separately from the sound effects
Great poker platform
by BigWaveDave49 on 2021/09/18 22:52
This Is the most intuitive poker platform I’ve seen. I play GG Poker real money, but this is good practice. There are donkeys on every site but maintain a good TAG strategy and you can win and become a PokerStar. Good fun.

Cheated
by scorpdan on 2021/09/15 21:56
I had three 4’s in my hand and a four on the flop. I lost to a straight. It’s not the first time I’ve been cheated here. When a poker app can’t be trusted to get it right like that, it isn’t worth it. It’s a real shame.
Worse app and site!
by CKkkkk7878 on 2021/09/14 06:23
Most rigged app I’ve ever played!!
Bad
by DarrellT007 on 2021/09/10 05:37
Don’t waste your time buying chips. The game seems rigged to give you bad beats, and take all your chips so you have to buy more. Never seen so many quads,royal flushes and bad beats on the river. On to the next one.
Rigged!!
by Jamerssssssss on 2021/09/02 03:45
The game is rigged, plain and simple. It wants you to spend money on chips. You flop three of a kind, someone else rivers a straight. You get a flush, someone boats up. The statistical odds of some of some of these hands are outlandish - and they happen way to frequently to be a coincidence. The poker is fun but don’t expect a fair game.

Omaha Issue
by Good🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 on 2021/08/29 20:23
Before I start off, other than the issue I’m about to bring up, I do think that this is one of the best fake money poker games that is on the App Store. I myself most commonly play Omaha poker, as I find it fun. However, recently I have noticed that the game is not registering all of the hands on the table correctly. Multiple times I have had full house, a straight, or 2 pair and it has not counted as what it should have. This results in me losing 350k+ pots where I should win but the game is incorrect, or when there’s a tie, it doesn’t count high cards correctly. I would greatly appreciate if they would fix this issue as I do really like this game. TLDR: Omaha hands not counted correctly Plz fix

Game is rigged
by Tinob123 on 2021/08/24 01:05
Never have had so many bad beats in my life. You get on a hot streak but once you reach a certain tier you get bad beat after bad beat. I’m a pretty conservative poker player and I don’t usually chase but if I go all in, 9/10 times I’m ahead and I will get sucked out time after time. I’ve had more bad beats in the short amount of time playing this game than I’ve had in the past 20 years playing once or twice a week in live cash games

by This Ap is Trash. on 2021/08/22 18:06
The more money you pay into the game, the better hands you get. If you stop buying you’ll pretty much lose always. Have fun playing, but after a certain level you’ll have to start paying to keep playing. Edit: Still 100% true. Don’t waste money on this app.
Lotta fun
by amdknv on 2021/08/16 02:04
The nice thing is it’s fairly hard to run out of chips. Every once in a while the game breaks and I can’t fold or something like that so meh on that but it’s rare
Love it

by Slotomaniac2012 on 2021/08/14 10:59
Completely unrealistic card dealing. How can almost every hand be a full house flush or straight? Don’t waste your time unless you have time to waste. You’ve been warned. Completely unrealistic!
worst racket ever needs federal investigation
by b12345678,9 on 2021/08/14 01:23
after about 2 months of playing and winning millions of money without having to use my credit card to “chip boost” the app will stop dealing fairly and make you loose every hand in order to get you to use your credit card to stay afloat. garbage app needs to be removed from the app store and executives need to be arrested.

One of the best poker apps.
by gm105 on 2021/08/10 17:21
I’ve been playing for many years. This is one of the fairest sites I’ve played on, with quite a few skilled players. You get daily bonuses that help sustain you through unlucky streaks. Safe way to learn the game while playing against experienced players and acquiring an instinct for the odds. The site has open tables for both Holdem & Omaha and three person Holdem tournaments. Remember- poker is a dance hall girl who loves you and leaves you as your luck changes. She follows the money. Don’t bet your house.
Joke
by Packerstars on 2021/08/05 03:17
This game is fake poker. You don’t need to believe their ridiculous claim the deals are monitored by some ridiculous outside group. Just play the game and you will have all the proof you need to agree with the 90% of other users - it’s totally fake.
Love the app but can’t report bugs
by jacoblee00000 on 2021/08/03 00:30
Why can’t I report bugs? The “help” button shows me the hands in poker. The “feedback” button asks me to rate it from frown to smiley face emoji. The “contact us” email doesn’t respond. So I’ve come to leave a review! The following is a bug I’ve noticed and a design feature I want. Bug: Sometimes I win the pot but the chip animation goes to someone else. I end up with the chips but the game tells me I’ve lost. No I can’t describe a specific example. Maybe if there were a “bug report” option I would pay more attention the next time it occurs. Feature: I finished all the quiz questions. I don’t care when I win chips from the questions, I just enjoy the questions. Please allow me to reset the quiz feature after I complete all the questions. I don’t need to earn chips, I just look forward to my daily poker quiz. Wonderful app and very fun.

Interface ridícula!

Cara, percebi qual foi a tentativa de vocês. Foi deixar o aplicativo parecido com uma mesa, MAS ISTO NÃO É UMA MESA! Dificulta tudo, selecionar a quantia certa, dar fold, localizar informações…Se é um aplicativo de celular tem que ser otimizado pra ser um aplicativo de celular. A interface anterior era muito melhor!

Never really thought rigged till these last updates
by cashcow103 on 2021/07/20 06:03
Run outs have gotten predictable, never had to buy chips till I updated it a few months ago to this new lobby. Players I’ve never seen are pulling out wins and people I’ve played with for actual YEARS have noticed the same. I am uninstalling and I’ll check back when I’m so disappointed in life that I want to see else could get wrecked
Proof that this is a sketchy app.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/07/16 22:22
Second review since my first one was replied saying they are fair play certified by gaming labs, and their shuffle and distribution are random. While this may or may not be true, I think they need to be tested again. I’ve ran simulations with my own cards in person and the results don’t match up. With a sample of 100 hands in the app, 76 hands were won on the river. (I only used hands where two or more players went to the river and showed) For example, two pair is leading up to the river, river comes and someone without a pair hits a gut shot straight. 57 of those were runner runner where they had for example 6 8 10 on the flop, and then comes 7 and 9 on the turn and river. After doing 100 hands in real life, 12 hands were won by the river card, 6 of those hitting two pair or making a boat. Two gut shot straights, and two flushes. Not a single runner runner. Obviously these results will vary, but Kind of off putting that when done in person with truly random cards, there were 64 more hands won on the river in the app. If you still want to use the app, just call everything, especially when you have no business doing so.
fun but weak system
by baed pocker playaer on 2021/07/16 08:09
it is meant to be fun and it is, it takes away the value if chips so u can do crazy moves, but if u do, u sacrifice time. this allows you to be more careful and gives incentives. i dont mind the pattern randomness as it is fun but when there is too many calculated winning pots the system glitches and picks high card. many times where people should have won with straights, the high card takes over. i dont know why but maybe include a replay pic of the last game in the next round so people arnt mis informed about how the actual game should be like and give people a chance to give good feedback.
The cards are not randomly generated.
by coltey123 on 2021/07/07 00:05
I have played so many times, and it seems my opponent always gets the better cards

by LittleWilb on 2021/06/20 22:59
I’ll make this to the point. You’re better off just raising with the worst hand cause they will reward you no matter what! Had to delete this app before I broke my phone. You can put play everyone and it simply doesn’t matter. Put your money in the with the best, 9-1 favorite, you’ll lose 80% of the time. Do not download this app!

Unrealistic today the least
by catskillshunter on 2021/06/14 16:52
I statistically analyzed the winning percentages funds an algorithm of sorts allowing 2 seats to win 85% of the hands for a set period of time then shift the 2 seats. Lucky for you if you are in these two seats but not realistic poker compared to actual table play. They tell you a third party certification of their dealing process but have really nothing to show that is a fact. Hope a realistic version of online poker developed an app accepted by all platforms for circulation and distribution.
Crazy Bad Beats

Tourneys don’t pay
by HIKER_AK on 2021/06/03 09:25
The 3 person tournaments pay out only 1.5 or 1x the buy-in. Kind of ridiculous. Should be no less than 3x the buy in as the minimum.
Rigged
by kstoked on 2021/06/01 17:22
I been playing this game for years, I’m talking 5 -6 years. And I always buy the 30,000,000 chip package. I’m really good at poker and played almost 2 times a week for over 10 years. On this game Youll have a hot streak then, BOOM you lose back to back to back. I’ve lost 15,000,000 in a day and I played for hours and all I usually play is AA,KK,JJ,QQ and sometimes 89 or J, 10 ya know especially if up in chips. Well here lately after I bought 39,000,000 chips I have lost hand after hand after hand. And I’m talking all I’m playing is face cards. And it’ll never hit. I see a pattern too. 1 day I’ll hit hit hit, then the next I’ll lose lose lose. But you lose more than you can Gain. Any poker player can tell you that. . I just feel like they’ll give you a hot streak. Then take everything away from you so you have to buy more. And I’m upset about this cause I’ve spent Hundreds of dollars on this game. And the pattern never fails. I won’t spend another dime on this till the manager/ Developer of this game makes it right!! They didn’t respond to me last time. So I hope this gets there attention if they actually care
Horrible and sad
by disgusted4321 on 2021/05/29 01:19
If you’re looking for a fun fair game you’ve come to the wrong spot. The dealing is so obviously rigged it makes me sad this is the best they can come up with. No wonder everyone bashes this app. Look in the mirror poker stars!! You can be better than this. Knock off the rigged dealing. Rigged dealing is for losers.
Lost access and customer service
by Girim on 2021/05/27 14:44
I have lost access to my account which has all credits and purchases accumulated since two years. I have contacted customer service in email, no resolution. As I am addicted to this game, I started using the new login, started fresh. As usual I have make few purchases recently. I again get same error since yesterday. I lost credits/points/purchases. A month back they said they are working on it, no response on later communications. Also, when I deleted app yesterday to try if it works reinstalling, after I deleted there were missing 78 notifications popped up from other apps.it looks like this app was stopping or accessing other information on my phone.
Pretty good
by EllieBerk on 2021/05/25 02:07
It was pretty good it’s just that when you’re around chipsets like they don’t carry it back for a little while. So it’s pretty good but honestly I feel like they should give you more chips.
Just play bingo
by Perplexed10 on 2021/05/23 22:30
The poker stars algorithm rewards bad play and basically makes poker into bingo. If you want to actually play poker, not bingo, try another app, invite some friends over, or go to a casino. :/
Bad customer service
by lola lucy on 2021/05/20 12:51
I have been playing for over 3 years and have spent a lot of money here. Just spend $180 and lost it as I couldn’t sign in, which normally I didn’t have to sign in. Another persons email popped up and it said I was signed into another device. Not true. My only device was the phone I was on. When I rebooted the app it then had 100,000 points and I had millions, back to level 1 and I was on level 505!!! I was my game back with the $180 of coins I just purchased and my 505 level back.
Used to be Good
by B MOMO on 2021/05/18 02:35
I used to play somewhat regularly. About 3 weeks ago the App wouldn’t let me in, said I was logged in elsewhere (which is not the case). Reached out to Support several times who were not able to offer any help - said they were fixing things, but nothing is happening. I lost a big pile of fake money that I cant be too upset about, but its the lost time of building up my stack. Now looking for another Poker App to start over on.
Don’t spend any money with this app
by TexasTattoo on 2021/05/17 21:51
I don’t recommend this game. Especially if you buy chips. Constant log in issues.
New app is a step backwards
by Stscha on 2021/05/17 11:54
The new app is disappointing for tournament play because it doesn’t allow you to see other players tables, player listings and positions and change table settings at the table. Not sure what is good about the new app at all
Locked out of my account and lost everything.
by taylor rogich on 2021/05/17 04:25
Don’t judge me, but I spent money on this game, just to open the app one day and be locked out of my account because “I’m signed in from another device” (I’m not). Very disappointed and don’t even know how to contact customer support to fix it. Be wary of spending your money.
Rigged terrible unrealistic poker
by dbig10 on 2021/05/17 02:47
If you have ever payed any real poker or play regularly then this will be furthest away from that possible. You will see every flop have some kind of straight. And if you think the 5 rivers in a row giving a straight is not possible...on this game it is. Also game breaks down. You get close to making the top league and all of sudden you cant sign in. When you reach out to them they will lie and say how they have had their card randomization audited by some 3rd party. Or how their developers are working in whatever glitch you find. All in all game is garbage but luckily for fake chips.
Not bad
by jponton3 on 2021/05/17 00:41
I like the game except that the winning hand is only display for a split second before it disappears. I don’t know what the winning hand was on most hands. It rally needs to be displayed longer or a box in the corner showing the last hand.
Donkey
by 123frank99 on 2021/05/12 02:44
If there was a game for donkeys this is it. I’ve played poker for a long time and I’ve never had so many bad beats, donkey players and bad luck at poker. I guess if you don’t spend real cash to buy your chips you get no love on this crappy game!!!

DO NOT PURCHASE PLAY CHIPS!!!
by BIG_SUCKER on 2021/05/11 06:06
DO NOT PURCHASE PLAY CHIPS!!! I spent $99.99 to purchase $331 million in play chips and within 6 hours I was unable to login because it said I was already logged in from a different device (which I obviously wasn’t). So someone else somehow stole my identity and is playing with my chips.
Fake
by so rigged it's laughable on 2021/05/11 04:56
Do not play this game. This game is so rigged it’s beyond laughable. If you have free chips go ahead and play but don’t ever buy any chips. At the risk of sounding redundant this game is so rigged.
Bad software
by Hersha5 on 2021/05/09 03:17
It works when you deposit money but when you try to play a game the software will freeze no matter how many times you log in/out and reinstall the app. You will spend the game disconnected and with a frozen screen and pokerstars will not refund you your money lost in tournaments because of there software problem.

Hate the upgraded app
by rundvu on 2021/05/01 20:28
I can't believe anyone thinks this upgrade is an improvement. I loved the PokerStars app before this upgrade. I'm just hoping PokerStars doesn't change the computer format. Hate the upgrade!
Don’t buy chips
by Edro Navissi on 2021/04/30 11:58
I wouldn’t say that it’s one of those games you want to pay money to for fake money, but it is fun! Don’t worry about earning chips though. You can get them by playing the game, of course. It’s pretty cool for a virtual poker casino when you can’t go and play it in real life, so it’s fun even for kids who are interested in the game.
so far so good

I’m using a iPad to play and it keeps freezing while bidding and kicks out of the game or folds my hand. What can you do about that?
The worst
by luckygolfer2 on 2021/04/19 04:57
This isn’t realistic. If someone has a better rating in the game they always get the better hand. Even when you have a really good hand. The person with the higher rating always gets lucky on the river.
Rigged Game that wants to take your money.
by mattpdemp on 2021/04/18 00:13
If you like playing poker on a platform that rigs it’s shuffle algorithm strategically to get you to purchase more of their fake money (with real money) so that you can continue to lose more of their fake money, than this the app for you! Don’t worry about the investigations and lawsuits against them! Just give them your money! What more could you ask for?????
Company only cares about money
by LootLaker on 2021/04/16 20:48
Can’t fix the same problem I’ve been having for a year where it deals you the cards and can’t see them. You can update the ads on the game every day though. Nice
Rigged (suspected)
by Cj100019015 on 2021/04/14 00:12
Suspect that game is rigged against the player - would not recommended. The method follows this structure: 1) hot streak for 10-15 hands (win lots of pots) 2) cold streak for 20-30 hands 3) coolers / traps laid for 10-15 hands (FH loses to quads, etc.) I’ve confirmed with other players that they’ve had a similar experience. If you’re looking for quality poker, this isn’t it.

Decent but needs improvement
by Psyquestor on 2021/04/06 12:13
The desktop app has many useful widgets that help a player win. None are available on the app. I’d like some added, as some tournaments are better played without being tied to the desktop. Chief gripe: can’t access blackjack on mobile app, but can on desktop. Why?
Super Spin Joke
by Feline_Nine on 2020/11/12 19:36
Wanted to get some free coins today and there was an option to rate Poker Stars to get a free ‘Super Spin, wish I didn’t spend my time giving this app a good review as the did not give me my free spin. Also, there default in-game responses are pretty cheesy like “I’m so tight now” or “Can’t call that much” when you fold etc., but not to big of an annoying deal. When you do their daily spin on the wheel I get $5,000 to $7,000 chips, and will get something more like $25,000 out of a million maybe a couple times a year.

The game is fun and it’s easy to use. The only reason I gave this a 3 star review is the profile system. It asked for my Facebook log in info or to create a guest account. I don’t like linking everything to my Facebook so I created the guest account. Played the game for a few weeks and then they closed the account. So I went into the settings and attempted to log in with Facebook. It didn’t work. Contacted customer support and they said I have to create another account. Why allow someone to create the guest account if you can’t use it long term/log in to facebook later? Not the worst thing in the world but it is annoying when you had 2 million chips saved up. I won’t be creating another account or playing this anymore. If you want to play this game, immediately create a profile using your Facebook info. Update: Changed to 4 stars since the developer reached out to correct the mistake. To the developer: My guest account was Goodflush570. I wasn’t able to link this to my Facebook after it got closed so I never made an actual account. Since I’ve removed the app I imagine the account is no longer active. Hopefully you’re able to see what happen. I appreciate the reimbursement but I don’t think I’ll be getting the app again.
Do not buy chips
by merzap on 2021/03/23 01:38
I bought chips and they didn’t even give me the right amount of what I bought, after contacting the developer they gave me the difference (that was only after some back and forth emails). It was frustrating to say the least, due to the fact that if your the developer and you have my player ID you should know what was deposited in my account and what deal I bought. Not with poker stars play, they were questioning me as if I had not bought the chips with the deal I had stated. The good thing is I had taken screen shots of the play chips and the deal f not I feel they would had brushed me off. Another thing I noticed and this what has me displeased, It will play the hand and at the end you lost when you have the winning hand. The system did it on several occassions, I thought that I was wrong but on my last hand tonight I had triple 9 before river at the end of the hand it said the other player one with two pairs 10 2. How is that possible? do not waste your money. It would be nice if they had like poker stars lite or poker starswhere if you tap at the chat you can see what other players had in that hand and the id for that hand that way we could contact the developers.
Rigged
by kstoked on 2021/06/01 17:22
I been playing this game for years, I’m talking 5 -6 years. And I always buy the 30,000,000 chip package. I’m really good at poker and played almost 2 times a week for over 10 years. On this game Youll have a hot streak then, BOOM you lose back to back to back. I’ve lost 15,000,000 in a day and I played for hours and all I usually play is AA,KK,JJ,QQ and sometimes 89 or J, 10 ya know especially if up in chips. Well here lately after I bought 39,000,000 chips I have lost hand after hand after hand. And I’m talking all I’m playing is face cards. And it’ll never hit. I see a pattern too. 1 day I’ll hit hit hit, then the next I’ll lose lose lose. But you lose more than you can Gain. Any poker player can tell you that. . I just feel like they’ll give you a hot streak. Then take everything away from you so you have to buy more. And I’m upset about this cause I’ve spent Hundreds of dollars on this game. And the pattern never fails. I won’t spend another dime on this till the manager/ Developer of this game makes it right!! They didn’t respond to me last time. So I hope this gets there attention if they actually care
Garbage
by Cainsofoxford on 2019/03/31 23:46
It’s hard enough to sharpen your game playing with play chips because people will call you down with nothing. It’s COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE to sharpen your game with this rigged app. First off, their claim that the card generator is definitionally incorrect. There is absolutely nothing random about computers. Computers only do what they are told to do or programmed to do. And with this app, it’s completely ridiculous. I’m assuming that they program it to create “exciting” hands. About 75 percent of hands are decided on the river. There are an insanely disproportionate number of hands that contain flush over flush, set over set, etc. if you flop top pair, you can bet your life that the other two cards match someone’s hole cards. It seems that I am on the losing end of these rigged hands most of the time but I also have won several hands in the same ridiculous fashion. There’s just no possible way that all of these crazy wild hands that are decided on the river are random. Also DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY BONUS CHIPS FROM THIS APP. I did this on three occasions and after each time, I lost EVERY SINGLE TOURNANENT I entered until the chips were gone (lost 17 straight tournaments one time). Do not waste your time!
Proof that this is a sketchy app.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/07/16 22:22
Second review since my first one was replied saying they are fair play certified by gaming labs, and their shuffle and distribution are random. While this may or may not be true, I think they need to be tested again. I’ve ran simulations with my own cards in person and the results don’t match up. With a sample of 100 hands in the app, 76 hands were won on the river. (I only used hands where two or more players went to the river and showed) For example, two pair is leading up to the river, river comes and someone without a pair hits a gut shot straight. 57 of those were runner runner where they had for example 6 8 10 on the flop, and then comes 7 and 9 on the turn and river. After doing 100 hands in real life, 12 hands were won by the river card, 6 of those hitting two pair or making a boat. Two gut shot straights, and two flushes. Not a single runner runner. Obviously these results will vary, but Kind of off putting that when done in person with truly random cards, there were 64 more hands won on the river in the app. If you still want to use the app, just call everything, especially when you have no business doing so.
Finally had to delete
by Tape Doctor on 2019/05/11 14:08
Played for a year. I have noticed what must be random patterns according to all these poker apps including yep this one and read reviews of others that say same thing. Get a lot of beginners luck. See a lot of miracles on the river. See a lot of spin & go where you check all the way through with 6,7 unsuited and the winner has 7,8. Seen a lot of trips on the flop, get a full house and someone always has four of a kind. See a lot of bad luck after you buy chips. Seen a lot of bad beats including losing to three full houses in one session. Seen a lot of top pair hole cards where everyone folds before you can make a bet. Have been on both sides of all these but mostly the wrong side. Rigged or not and I notice that the developer does not say they have been certified by some independent fair play organization - which WSOP say they have and post every time someone writes a review like this one. In the end, if you want to spend money being entertained, then go for it. I went on a bad losing streak and deleted the app after I lost on a straight to a flush on the river. I am going to go back to playing with real cards shuffled by real people.
Glitches and patterns
by Geezuskereist on 2018/02/11 23:03
Was skeptical of new software (old PokerStars player) but gave it a shot. Not bad for a play money app. I have come across a couple of glitches that aren’t frequent but aren’t rare either where the check button doesn’t come up forcing you to bet or neither the check nor the bet button comes up - annoying but not often enough to hate playing. What I got into though was the leagues portion of the game. Unfortunately, I’m noticing that it doesn’t log all my tournament wins. I won several the night before and I come back today to a 0 balance (and yes, this was after the old league stats ended and should have been counted on new league) very disappointing. Also, they really should eliminate the 1.5x tourney prize on these games - but that’s just my opinion. Also starting to notice patterns of repeated odds beating by certain players meaning time after time in the same tournaments they defy odds to win. Not just the occasional bad beat but runner runner over and over again (and runner runner runner runner too). I understand the “Unbelievable” as one of your three default options for chat.
Not Random
by Chirnobyl on 2021/03/22 13:57
Of course the game will say the cards are random but their algorithm is off. When you hit a 3 outer at a 7% chance, it’s obvious that something doesn’t make sense. Their algorithm offers a 33% chance of winning a hand on a tournament rather than proper randomization on cards being dealt. It’s a fun game to play if you want to burn some time and money but it’s definitely not like real poker. Too many times have I seen AK lose to A8 because of a 4 card straight in the board or a 4 card flush. Not random, not realistic. Also, they base your rank and mastery level on how many chips you earn in a week. Not based on percentage of wins. So a Pay to Play player can buy millions of chips, play 1 big tournament for 50mil, lose all their money afterwards never winning another tournament, and still upgrade to next level of mastery, whereas a player with a 100% win percentage at 100k chip tournaments will never exceed past a certain level. This is a pay to play game with an altering algorithm designed to incentivize the purchase of fake money for their own profit. A big waste.
I just want to play
by Jsfhfjajah on 2020/04/05 10:52
I’ve played for a while and I was too in my state for a while. One day I stopped playing and I used my Facebook account to log in and play and the other night I decided to download this app again. I’ve put $25 in on this new account and who knows what On my old account. I tried logging in with the old account and it just doesn’t work. I loved playing this game but I logged on today and couldn’t even play hold em which is the reason why I downloaded this. All that shows up is slots and live games and the featured games but I miss the large games I used to be able to play with 6-8 people or whatever number above 3 players there was. A few months ago this game was perfect and one of the only apps I enjoy on my phone. Now clearly there’s been an update and I don’t like it and I don’t understand it at all. I just want to play hold em.
Wow! What a bunch of sore losers on here!
by panicrev555 on 2021/11/19 02:16
If I play smart I tend to win in the long run. If I play overly loose I tend to lose. My gripes are 1, how are you bet. Often, unintentionally, because you have to drag your bet on to the table, you raise when you just want to call. And 2, they refuse to give an option to shut off that monotonous lounge music. I figured out how to get it to shut up through other means which I won’t divulge in case they figure out how to fix that because they have a sadistic purpose behind that mind numbing tune but I would rather just have it as an option. I have never paid real money for fake chips with any app. Why would anybody? They give you chips for free daily! If you blow your entire bankroll on one bet it’s a good lesson to learn working your way from the bottom again. The lesson to learn is - don’t blow your entire bankroll on one bet. lol!!!
Fun, but major glitch
by FriendlyFolk on 2020/05/05 00:20
This game is fun and I enjoyed playing and climbing the ranks. However, there is a major glitch that occurred three times. I emailed customer support and never heard back which is part of the reason I’m only giving this app 3 stars. Here is the issue: I entered a sit and go tournament, however it did not fill up for several minutes so I returned to the lobby. There was a pop up asking if I want to leave and it noted I would receive a refund of the entry amount. I did not receive it. This happened three times with a 50M, 50M, and a 10M buy-in. Most people who are playing for those wagers have either spent real money on the app or have played for many hours earning the developer revenue through ads. These glitches should not occur. If someone from the developer reads this they should know that I emailed them and my userID is RichBrag6480. I am happy to help assist in resolving this bug.
Game is rigged.
by batavela on 2021/10/14 03:02
This game is 100% rigged. I play poker for long time and have never lost more pots with good hands than here. Everything is rigged with only one purpose. TO MAKE PLAYERS TO BUY CHIPS. You can play as good poker as there is and you will lose. For example. I had AK suited. Raised preflop and had a caller. On flop I hit my K. Other player went all this n I called. Guess what happened He had J5 off. On flop he had his pair of 5’. Next you know he got his J on river. Game is fixed. Don’t waste your time playing much less waste your money buying their chips. It’s official. If you aren’t buying chips from them do not bother downloading and playing this game. It’s rigged. You can play poker as poker is played, as you see pros playing it on TV but all that you can forget here. You are going to suffer so many beats to junk hands. If you have straight someone gonna get boat on the river. If you have two pairs someone gonna get third 2 to hit set on the river. IT JUST AIN’T WORTH IT.
Rigged and full of bots
by smellyfartbox on 2021/09/20 10:32
I thought zynga poker was bad, but this game is way worse. Its full of fake players because they dont have enough real players to fill the tables. You get a bot in almost every game. TONS of glitches as well. Multiple times i waited in a spin and go lobby and no one joined so i went to find a new lobby and it tells you that your chips will be refunded if you leave but they never refund you. Multiple times i have had the winning hand and it gives the win to someone who doesn't even have a hand at all. The check button and bet buttons have also disappeared in game and made it to where i could only fold or run out of time and it would stand me up from the table in a tournament. You will also see a lot of things happen repeatedly that have astronomical odds of happening in real life. This game is horribly rigged and horribly run by bots. Save your time and money and look for a different game to play
Joined for Texas Hold’em and its no longer offered
by Oliver Rat on 2020/04/05 21:58
I downloaded and began playing this app 4-5 days ago and had a lot of fun on it. Good format, fast play, easy to chat at the table, achieved my goals for the first 3 days. When I signed in the next day, they removed the poker feature I was playing on. In the picture shown to advertise their app shows the following four play options: 1) Featured; 2) Poker (this is what I enjoyed and would rate 4.5 stars); 3) Slots; 4) Live Games. For some odd reason, over the past two days they have removed the “poker” play feature. The rest of the live options appear to be slow and are not enjoyable for me personally. Sent them an email and hoping they respond. If they return the feature, I would rank this app 4.5 stars so long as it doesn’t disappear everyone few days with gaps of no play options in between these break periods.
Seems rigged.
by Mr. Jeff33 on 2021/02/12 18:16
I have been playing this app for awhile. I have even spent some money buying chips. I have noticed as you get higher in the tiers the amount of games won decreases significantly. I have specifically noticed when playing against unranked players the chance of getting beat on what would be considered unbeatable hands goes up. For instance I go all in on ace, king with an ace on the board. The other player shows 6, 3 unsuited. First of all who goes all in on this hand but then to hit 6, 6 runner, runner. And it has happened continuously, once I made it to the top tiers. Also the app has frozen on several big hands and caused me to lose tournaments as I have to leave and come back and by then most of my chip stack has been reduced. I would suggest spending your time and money elsewhere.
Can you give a negative star review? -⭐️
by SkisaWinner on 2020/04/26 20:11
Now that PokerStars has removed the 6 player “HoldEm” tables; completely gone & was what I mostly played, they can kiss this player goodbye!!! I played this game on occasion and climbed fairly well on my own and they have removed HoldEm completely. WTH?!!??!?!? Well, I hate that I have to, because their HoldEm rooms were pretty well laid out; insta-chat, player info, advance opportunities & so-forth. Even their customer service was decent; messaging was easy enough & quick to respond. So, I hope they listen to their customers & read my and other’s reviews, (I will check back in a week, or so to see if they have) I can honestly say, that if HoldEm doesn’t return in what I enjoyed most about the game, I will dump this game & they will have lost a customer!!! And I imagine many, many others will, if not have already followed suit!
Garbage. Stay away.
by Babaju2 on 2019/06/03 06:50
This isn’t real Poker. It’s completely rigged. I had a 40% tournament win rate when I was beginner/novice rank. But now that I’m in ‘skilled,’ I’ve lost about 20 tournaments in a row with maybe ONE win in between for only a 1.5x gain and my win rate has dropped to 37%. I am not exaggerating. Ever since my rank has been in ‘skilled’ tier, almost every single hand that I raise, the other two players call me with absolutely nothing and then one of them hits the nuts on the river. I have lost with pocket aces to quad 2’s TWICE this week. After you begin requiring a large amount of winnings to advance to the next tier, the game tries very VERY hard to clean you because it knows you’re likely to spend. It’s merely a cash grab, nothing more. It’s also full of glitches such as having your cards dealt to your face down, or being unable to raise. Big waste of time.
Meh
by jackderwindt on 2018/07/23 14:35
A play money app should make all of its income from advertising(which there is plenty of on this one), right...unless people actually purchase chips(which seems highly unlikely [but not necessarily “unbelievable”])? My biggest complaint is that on the spin and go 3-person tournaments that the most frequent payout is only 1.5 times the buy-in, which is completely absurd. Not once have I played and it spun for the however many millions each one has as its highest denomination on the wheel, but regardless the least you should make back for winning is 3x your buy-in which doesn’t seem unreasonable considering the chip value is imaginary(and by winning more people would naturally play more)... maybe I’m wrong and people actually do purchase fake chips, if so then good on ya, if not it would make more sense to keep people on the app furthering your advertising exposure, no? Just one guy’s $.02.
A pretty fun one
by BrianCovey16 on 2020/04/26 13:48
This app is pretty fun and pretty straightforward to use. The primary reason why I didn’t rate it at 5 stars is because of the fact that there’s no ability to merge accounts or achievements. My account on my computer and my account on my phone were two different ones since I used the “guest” account (FastDog7W606) on app and my current account “briancovey16”. I just wish the achievements/exp and chip transferred over, I had a little bit saved up, but I’m missing those VIP bonuses!! All in all, pretty great app, but make an account with Facebook otherwise you’ll lose everything up until that point to start fresh :/
All poker apps are rigged
by card player1524 on 2020/12/12 19:22
Just when you think you found a poker app with real odds you didn’t.... the same as all the other so called certified odds.... so obviously not.... twice in one game I was one upped a card in a flush... he was dealt A10 spade and I was dealt K 9 spade but didn’t hit.... couple hands later I was dealt J 9 diamonds and he was dealtA Q diamonds and it hit and I lost.... in heads up poker that’s just about impossible to happen twice in one 10 minute game... it’s fun but not real at all... definitely just a time waster ... don’t play poker apps if you want to play real live poker the odds are nothing near the real thing.... the better you are the more they just counter that when they’ve learned you... they want people to run out of chips so you will buy more or watch an ad... so close... almost a good app... I have given up on these stupid apps
Omaha Issue
by Good🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 on 2021/08/29 20:23
Before I start off, other than the issue I’m about to bring up, I do think that this is one of the best fake money poker games that is on the App Store. I myself most commonly play Omaha poker, as I find it fun. However, recently I have noticed that the game is not registering all of the hands on the table correctly. Multiple times I have had full house, a straight, or 2 pair and it has not counted as what it should have. This results in me losing 350k+ pots where I should win but the game is incorrect, or when there’s a tie, it doesn’t count high cards correctly. I would greatly appreciate if they would fix this issue as I do really like this game. TLDR: Omaha hands not counted correctly Plz fix
Give us our online freedom back
by thom114 on 2018/11/10 06:47
Wish that it was like the good old PokerStars days.. I miss real money play tourneys and satellites can't get the numbers in real life like online and micro buyins are my flavor because I'm not very wealthy,This app seems like it started having bad beats more since I actually purchased a bonus offer I had pop for chips , I didn't think I ever would but now I have expensive taste as far as my blond size and tournament buy in size but , I lost all of it after realizing it was against me I got a little tilted and started donating my chips in my rage.. now it kind of ruined the normal play for me with the free 15-45k they dish out, it's just dull to me now, but I don't have the desire to buy any chips that seems kind of dumb that I would have to begin with.
No way it’s random
by BretV-23 on 2018/09/10 23:08
I have been playing this game for about 2 months. I love the ease of use and the playability, however, if you go into this thinking it is a “fair game”, you are going to be very disappointed. I have played MULTIPLE tournaments at all levels and regardless of the situation I have seen hands such as 3 of a kind, full houses, straights and even straight flushes get beaten on the river by hands that should never have even been in the pot to begin with. It’s a crapshoot at best. People calling all in bets when all they have is a small pair, 3 to a flush, needing 2 cards t fill an inside straight and somehow winning against dominate hands, REGULARLY. I’ll you want to do is pass the time, enjoy, but if you want a realistic experience, pass on this one. Edit—not sure what u want in regard to ID, all it says is Bret
It’s fun but I get a feeling
by 1 dogbitbilly on 2019/01/21 20:57
It’s fun at first but I must say in beginning it runs smoothly my experience is I caught a lot of good cards a the start won a good bit of chips once I hit a million no matter how good my hand is someone has better I see it cause now there’s a glitch before the hands last card so that’s led me to believe that I’m gonna most likely lose all my chips so that I buy more but once they’re gone I’ll delete it. I could be wrong that’s certainly the way it seems though my experience anyhow. 24 hours later........ so to reassure me that what I thought was true I just had a strife and was beat by one pair did the rules of poker change?? That was bs I never knew one pair was better than a straight yea there’s no fair dealing for sure. Too many poker apps to put up with such obvious cheating
Entertaining but too fast
by Якков on 2019/01/02 19:24
Fun and easy and visual. It’s free but not exactly free since you need more chips to play with better players. So chips cost something. It makes the game more interesting as players become more responsible. I put 4 stars and not 5 because it’s too hard to play for inexperienced players. Time for your turn goes by so quickly you barely can weigh your hand. And when the game is done and all the cards are on the table it’s only a second to see other players’ hands (to understand their ways of thinking) Overall it’s a very decent game especially for the regions where money poker is unlawful.
No poker
by Potatoess on 2020/04/05 00:26
This sounds ridiculous, but I opened the app today and there’s no option to play poker any more. Under the featured section, they are promoting their slot games and a chip buying event. There’s another tab for live games, but I can’t find the option to just get into a poker table anymore. I opened the app and checked it out a few times throughout the day, went through ALL the menus and I can’t figure it out. I’ve used the app a hundred times. I can’t find any resources or a way to contact them online so I figured I’d post a review here. Can anybody point me in the right direction? I am really confused why they would just remove the option to quick play from the front page and then make it this hard to find.
Impossible support
by Karatejoe13 on 2021/01/01 20:58
Have had to remove and reload over 7 times , bought 4.99 worth of chips an less than 24 hours can’t get it to open or load . It gave me a message asking me to take a screen shot to report to tech support. Trying to do that was a complete waste of time w a automatic pick your problem list that asked me to rephrase my question , Saying it did not understand?! SMH Click the green to contact a person?! Clicked it and started all over. I only invest 7 bucks but can tell you I would never gamble w any amount of real money because if anything goes wrong they make it impossible to reach them . Will definitely let my family and friends who do invest to beware. Sad . The only reason I gave 1 star is the little I played I liked.
Love the game
by srfrb3 on 2018/12/08 15:24
Love PokerStars was an old player when we could actually play for money. Government took that away from us in Indianapolis and I helped you fight the good fight in DC. Gave it 4 stars due to a few glitches, one is I get disconnected quite a bit on my cell phone, 2 is sometimes trying to fold a hand I can’t get the cards to move. 3rd is I made it through the ranks quickly to find out you get Demoted when there is no time in my busy schedule to play. I understand the lower ranks but once you reach elite you should be able to hold that respect from other players. On the whole, love you guys and gals.
The worst so far (and that’s saying something!)
by SuperSayin' on 2018/04/19 15:29
I don’t know how the “new” PokerStars apps are designed, but I can tell you this one is terrible. It looks okay. It’s addictive...but it’s garbage. I could go on all day about why. But I’m just going to say the community is toxic. They don’t have any form of fast play, so people slow roll any time they lose a hand. Call each other derogatory names. Chips vanish when you leave a table. Most of the time they come back after you exit the app. But sometimes they don’t. It was the same thing every table. Tossed my 30,000,000 chips in two hands (on purpose), so I wouldn’t be tempted to play again. It was difficult to get someone to call because they thought I was donking it. Anyhow, play WSOP or hell, any of them before you play this one. If you do play this one, good luck...
So I Loved This App but then...
by JermTheRugger on 2020/05/04 00:53
My wife and I wanted to play poker during quarantine. So I downloaded about a dozen and have been trying them out. The app doesn’t hand out chips like napkins so there are few table bully’s just throwing around chips knowing they will have a ton more in an hour. Generally, the cards seem to be pretty random. I have seen more high card, pairs, and two pairs win than other sites. And often their is no chance for anything higher than trips - like real poker. The Spin and Go Tournaments were definitely the best. That was 5 stars. But it lost a star because the spin and go tourneys say a chance to win up to 100x the buy in. I have never seen one be more than 3x the buy in and I’ve played a lot. So down to 4x. But this morning when I logged on, there was no poker to play!?!? The only options were slots and featured which had slots and chip sales. Even my daily challenges tell me to win x number of hold’em games. But that’s not an option now. I only dropped it to 2 stars because I’m not giving up hope yet that they will fix this.
Winnings
by Jason@Indiana on 2019/09/02 12:20
Each tier of buy in has a higher jackpot spin in which you could play for a large amount of chips. Unfortunately that’s never the case. Example: just bought in for 500k, and played for 750k! That’s robbery! At the very least you should be playing for the buy ins, of the players! In this current situation, if you lose one game, you have to win the next two tournaments to break even! That’s BS! This is how they get you to make a purchase if you want to continue playing, smart! I’ll continue to play until my free chips runs out, but if I’m paying to play, I’m gonna play live cash games instead of paying to play for free.
Constant glitches
by tonybass55 on 2021/11/10 15:21
Constant glitches and issues every time there os an update.I am referring to the home games. Every time there was an update, something that worked just fine before, stops working. And when you write to customer service, They generally answer with some generic response that doesn’t help at all. As an example, the option to show cards or not recently disappeared. They seem to be more concerned with bells and whistle‘s, like stupid graphics, then they are with real issues. It’s still one of the only options, I guess best of the worst, but they need to get there programming house in order and stop messing with things that work perfectly fine.
One of the best poker apps.
by gm105 on 2021/08/10 17:21
I’ve been playing for many years. This is one of the fairest sites I’ve played on, with quite a few skilled players. You get daily bonuses that help sustain you through unlucky streaks. Safe way to learn the game while playing against experienced players and acquiring an instinct for the odds. The site has open tables for both Holdem & Omaha and three person Holdem tournaments. Remember- poker is a dance hall girl who loves you and leaves you as your luck changes. She follows the money. Don’t bet your house.
I don’t need to play for my entire bankroll when I select a tournament worth 3 percent of it.

Game works perfectly fine. However, when you select a tournament with one buy-in, and for whatever reason the game gives you the option of that buy- in or another one that is worth your entire bankroll, and you make one false click and are then playing for everything you’ve accumulated, it can be pretty frustrating. Until they remove that option, or at least ask for confirmation for playing for your entire bankroll, I am giving this one star. I just lost all the play money I’ve accumulated over the last 3 months and want to smash my iPad because of this poor option and my mis-click. Thank You
The cheaters seem to be more and more
by Limodriverjeff on 2019/02/28 06:48
I have found cheaters of a couple different kinds Programs are out primarily in USSR players that allow the user to see all cards and cards due to come off the deck They never loose a hand they are in and outrageously bet over the top on hands they are in. The next type are players from the same country. They never compete against each other and come in to the table at close to the same time and are on the phone to each other or on the phone to a few players at the table, again all from the same court try and never bet against each other and are usually out of hands by the turn card. It’s a problem that they know about at PS and have taken some steps to return integrity to the site. I have notice some obnoxious players loosing the chat side. Some are suspended for a period of time and can not sign in and play....then are Chat-less for awhile if I see them again. I enjoy the game and can usually spot consistent cheaters
Stop whining it’s a gr8 game
by cdp922 on 2019/03/06 16:40
Read some of the reviews can’t believe anyone would complain, it’s free and it’s a lot of fun! A great way to burn time if you have time to burn, players get better hands then real poker but if you play right as if you was playing real poker and truly know how to play it all washes out the same.. it’s the only game I now have on my phone and the only one I want or need.. happy playing but if you come and play like you don’t have no since beware I’ll take your chips
Really unexpected
by zorch890 on 2018/10/14 06:18
Geese I always thought PokerStars was great and upstanding been playing on the original site since 2001 so I decided to download this game I hate to say it’s poor 😕 1) I watch a commercial to get some chips and guess what after watching there’s no way to get out ?? so I have to leave the app and get no chips BOO ! Doesn’t anyone check this stuff out ? 2) playing in a game sometimes the cards are facedown how the hell you bet when you can see cards I just laugh and say geezus and No it’s not my internet connection and Yes I have all the latest updates Ya know I hate to bash PokerStars cause I like playing on your sites you want me to spend money BUT you need to clean up some things I expect more from PokerStars!
Too much fun
by Hollywood Marine on 2019/03/26 20:33
This is a really fun app that is mildly interactive. The glitches thoroughly got to me and I was done! Totally going to delete it. Alas, I kept returning to it and learned to wait out the glitches and know it’s just an app. Unbelievable hands come through on the river but I’d say the app is non-personal and anyone could be the lucky one. More often, it’s just plain fun even with imperfections OMG. In good conscience, I had to update my former review. Enjoy, it’s just a game. :)
Don’t pay money
by Reecethwalker12245321 on 2019/09/30 03:25
The bad luck after you pay real money is in real... will pay ..99 or 4.99 on micro here and there and lose it within the week because I cannot call on ridiculous hands, when I do, there’s no luck. It seems I can’t get anything over a 9 in what seems like 10 hands, while everyone is raising their hands. The river generator is ridiculous, I’ve lost flops because of rivers I shouldn’t have lost, so for a new player, do not fold until you hit river!! The computer is hard sole, needs more generation but I continue to play because I love poker
Don’t try to take this seriously
by P hurricane on 2020/05/09 03:09
If you like to play and enjoy winning, don’t bother. The math in the app makes no sense other than to induce action. Way too many spots where you’re three handed - and feels like the same when heads up - where you either have the same hand as someone or at least both have the same card. The odds are pretty high of that happening, especially with that few players, but here you get it seemingly every few hands. If you want an app where people get punished for being calling stations, don’t bother. If you like slots, but in poker form - go for it. I have uninstalled.
Love the app but can’t report bugs
by jacoblee00000 on 2021/08/03 00:30
Why can’t I report bugs? The “help” button shows me the hands in poker. The “feedback” button asks me to rate it from frown to smiley face emoji. The “contact us” email doesn’t respond. So I’ve come to leave a review! The following is a bug I’ve noticed and a design feature I want. Bug: Sometimes I win the pot but the chip animation goes to someone else. I end up with the chips but the game tells me I’ve lost. No I can’t describe a specific example. Maybe if there were a “bug report” option I would pay more attention the next time it occurs. Feature: I finished all the quiz questions. I don’t care when I win chips from the questions, I just enjoy the questions. Please allow me to reset the quiz feature after I complete all the questions. I don’t need to earn chips, I just look forward to my daily poker quiz. Wonderful app and very fun.
Horrible for poker
by Timmymorg on 2017/11/11 21:02
I am a user of the PokerStars lite app that is no longer on the App Store. I downloaded this for a friend who got a new iPad and tried it-HATED IT. He also hated it. To be fair I then downloaded it on my own iPad to give it a chance. I hate it even more now after using it. My login and password worked, but the menu and overall feel is terrible. If you are a fan of candy crush then this is probably great. It is like the many useless slot machine apps out there. Big graphics and wild sound effects. If you are a poker player that has been using the PokerStars Lite app or their website, this will make you want to quit playing poker. I am deleting it and hanging on to my Lite app as long as possible.
Its fun
by ace14451 on 2018/11/23 18:37
Easy to use I’ve played real money when I was able too. What I like about this is there’s good players on here. There ties to Facebook I’m not thrilled about but at least they can’t multi play like on the other sites I play on three and IMO multiple tables is not real poker. You can’t do that in a casino. Very fun and interactive if you know how to play on a free site you do good. If you think you’re all that maybe not your thing
Server connection closed down & had to reset my phone due to it freezing up
by Stairway2Se7en on 2020/09/05 19:03
I’ve tried signing and it states “Connection closed by server” I reset my phone, tried it again and began loading up and the same thing happened. My app is up to date. My WiFi is up and working because I checked that first. Very disappointed because now my husband and I cannot play against one another on our downtime at the tables. What’s going on ? And since the software upgrade on your website AND apples update, the last 4x I’ve tried spinning for extra play money, I’ve had to reset my phone every single time !! It freezes up.
Hope the players read this !
by In-Ty-Sum on 2020/08/22 06:40
Love the game ! The only negative is some people think they’re on TV and take every second of their clock to make a call. I understand it’s within the rules but come on people. I think everyone would enjoy the game if you’re ready to make a call or fold when it’s your turn. However I do believe that sometimes you need the time to make a decision. What I’m talking about is that some players use every second of the clock every time. Again I think they believe that they’re on TV and some players just think they’re playing a video game......... Thanking you in advance Sorry for the rambling........... PS: I know some of the online poker has a faster pace which would deal with the slow play.
Terrible algorithm
by Fromby on 2020/08/14 17:09
If people think they are playing real poker on this, they will be in for a rude awakening when they sit down at a real live table. If you have a good hand, don’t worry, someone calling your bet with a garbage hand will beat you on the river, that is unless of course you have quads, which happens at least once a game...very realistic. Also if you play the Spin and Go MAX at a table that pays out two places it’s likely that you as a second place finisher will make more than the person who wins the table. It’s truly a great way to reward terrible poker playing.
Completely useless
by Smoke This on 2020/06/23 11:31
The game is unplayable. Nearly every time I tried to play over the last six months the servers they run you through were unreliable. Starting games or tournaments was easy. PokerStars will take your money/ chips and get you started but as soon as you begin a tourney their servers fail and disconnect you so that you cannot bet or see cards. You’re then left helpless to watch your blinds be folded until you’re busted off the table. You are completely helpless. This is not the problem of some 56k dial-up ISP. This is the PokerStars Play app which is a full on failure. Don’t raise your blood pressure trying to make good of this mess.
Absolute Joke
by neverwritereviewsbuthadtoo on 2020/06/26 14:54
I never, ever write reviews, but I had to here. This game is fun, but what a complete joke. It actually got so bad that I started to keep track of the percentages. Over the course of 2 months, I have lost 40% of the time being a 90% favorite! I am not talking about bad beats, they happen in poker...but when your opponent needs the 1 card in the entire deck, and it happens over and over again, there is something way wrong! Couple that with the fact that a good half of the people go “all in” right away with nothing and will end up winning. So fold out your pocket aces because the six, deuce off suit will win consistently!
