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
by Chizraym on 2021/04/28 13:27
Literally had the higher card of the flush and the other player was awarded the hand. This game cheats you out of chips so you have to keep buying more. Disgusting

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
Seems odd
by Pammy22464 on 2021/04/14 12:17
Many times you don’t get to see your hole cards until you bet. You don’t even get the option to fold. For this reason it’s not real poker.
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?

by Jaque888 on 2021/04/02 23:02
Half the time you’re playing obvious bots that literally can’t lose. Never seen so many quads and coolers in my life. You get a pair, bot gets two, you get two but hit trips, you hit a flush bot hits a full house, you hit a full house bot hit quads. App is programmed so you’ll keep buying chips hope I can find a real app with real world odds. Ridiculous.
Money, money, money
by This Ap is Trash. on 2021/04/02 06:54
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.
Excellent app!!
by Retardo Seal on 2021/03/27 20:08
to get addicted, therefore find yourself keep purchasing chips and of course, waste your time. Then to top it all off, feel pathetic. Trust me, all the negative reviews here are nothing but real, facts and the truth. Just walk your dog or read something. It’s by far more entertaining and worthwhile then spending time on this bxxl - crxp. Can’t believe they have 4.6 ratings overall. That’s probably rigged as well.
Great game but...
by hfifouhkgkifliflifmkfvnkcnm on 2021/03/24 16:39
I really enjoyed this game for practicing my poker skills on the go. The only thing that I dislike about the app is they are constantly trying to get you to buy fake money with real money. LOL! However, this keeps the game interesting for me because I am constantly wanting to win so that I don’t run out of money because I’m definitely not buying fake money, with real money. As a business strategy though, I’m sure these guys are killing it!!
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.
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.

Extremely buggy
by Vanpire666 on 2021/03/18 21:29
This game is fun WHEN IT’S WORKING. It seems to lag really hard or completely lose connection way too often. It’s not my or your internet, it’s the app and it’s connection to the servers. Once you lose your connection all your money is up for grabs to everyone else on the table. This game would be more popular if these types of major bugs were resolved.
The pot earning need to be fixed
by A.Avelar123 on 2021/03/12 20:47
The game is great if u like to play poker but there’s a bug that has made me lose close to a million chips because it didn’t distribute the earning from the pot. I had multiple times now were the pot is about 300k and the game gives nobody money. Recently I won a 400k pot and i was told “Huge pot” and “big hand” but when it goes to give me the money I ended up with 20 to 40 thousand. Serious problem that is definitely making the game not enjoyable because each time I lose a massive amount of potential earning and a large sum of my own money which is usually 100-200k.

Terrible app! I disconnect constantly during games and lose a lot of money because of it!! I get kicked out of games, games will lag, and i will be “sitting out” and unable to rejoin my game. This app will lose you money. Go with a company that has better software.
Just need luck, not skill.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/03/01 23:41
Wish I could give it 0 stars. They choose who can win before the hand even starts. If you’re ahead on the flop, prepare to be behind on the river to a gut shot straight, runner runner flush draw, or a two pair. Never seen so many bad beats on the river in my life. If you download this, stay in until the river because I bet you’ll end up hitting if you’re the chosen one. And you’ll immediately be able to tell if you’re the chosen one by if you play 4 9 off suit and hit trips on the flop. Also I have no idea how this is rated 4.6 out of 5 when the majority of the reviews are pretty much what I’ve said. I just looked at the last 100 reviews and 80 percent of them were below three stars. If you’re not just a random poker player look for a different app.
Another one gone
by Brian13851976 on 2021/02/28 05:46
It used to be good but it's done, automatically puts me in, just confusing. I used to play here for money back in the day, now the free play isn't even fun. Try it and you will see what I mean, build up your stack to start and downhill from there.
Scam
by Kshif on 2021/02/21 14:10
You can be at the top of your league or State by millions until the last day and a name pops up suddenly millions ahead which is impossible to earn. Just a scam to get you to buy chips.
Boring, always low winnings
by StuStahulak on 2021/02/21 02:09

It’s a lie

They say that it’s random, and it’s cards but omg, I’m done with it I played on and off. I find I always win when I haven’t played for a while and start losing consistently when I’ve been playing. They are trying to get you to buy chips
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.
Terrible Poker App
by Anderson, In on 2021/02/10 02:27
Worst game in the App Store! I’m warning you, this is the most unfair dealing I’ve ever seen. When the bad beats come they just are never ending. Flushes and straights galore and they’re always to beat YOU! They build you up with a few chips to play then all of a sudden you can’t beat you’re blind Grandma!

Random my butt
by Packerstars on 2021/02/03 18:52
After playing 28,000 hands I can say without hesitation the computer likes action and will routinely, not rarely, but quite often give a player two pairs and lose to a straight. You can see it happen. If you have two pair and there is a straight possibly on the board just call and see. And there are only three players that n the tournament. Imagine the odds with only three players and this happening all of the time. You will laugh at how often it actually occurs
Buggy. UI blocks ability to fold.
by LohPhat on 2021/01/26 04:22
It’s happened to me at least once a month. I’m in a game, it’s my turn and I can’t fold. Then the clock runs out and I’m pushed out of the game.
Not random. Is predictable
by kk hh dd on 2021/01/24 05:52
Despite the claim in feedback. The third party you use is not doing there job. Tell me, is this the same “randomness” and “unpredictability” I will see with the real money app when legal poker starts in Michigan? No way will I use you product with real money.

Used to love this app. Not anymore!
by cubbies06 on 2021/01/12 15:48
I don’t believe there is all random cards in this game. Mostly I feel it is predetermined who is going to win. Some players with great cards continuously lose while others with garbage cards keep winning. Some players will win like 5 or more consecutive hands with crap. Not realistic at all! At least in my eyes. I have had both sides of this coin happen for me. Don’t like it. Ever since you could buy chips this game lost appeal to me and I have been playing for almost 20 years!
Completely 100% rigged.
by waaaaste of time on 2021/01/12 06:10
If you're any good at poker at all you will completely go insane. Don't bother. All they care about is people buying chips. If you are good and win your own chips they will give them away to the suckers.

Scam to get in app purchases.
by Backpacker3785 on 2021/01/05 03:21
Nearly impossible to play sustainably without investing real money. Most three player tournaments only payout twice the buy-in meaning the house is taking a 33% rake on every tourney. Insane.
Good game and all. One thing needed for 5 stars
by Mikeh4405 on 2021/01/04 05:09
I do like the game. Very easy to use and fast play. One thing I think could be beneficial tho. Would be auto top off. For example, you buy in $200k. Play a big hand and lose half to $100k. But have reserves in your bank, If there were a setting to auto top off back to your original buy in or max buy in, that would be great!
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.

Cards are not random and collusion everywhere
by DaniSuMilaBeth on 2020/12/19 14:51
I have been playing for 4 months, around 12 hours a day. I am not a poker pro, but i am learning and studying the game. I started with 100k and worked my way up to 11 million. I didnt buy chips. I watched the adds and spun the wheel and that was enough in the beginning. More often than not, your are dealt a premium hand as soon as you enter the game. I have been dealt Pocket A’s, K’s multiple times in a row. And that happens a lot. ON FIRE! TABLE BOSS! I started to notice the collusion when i was holding premium hands and getting called with absolute trash. I went on tilt and entered another table. I was dealt 5 premium hands in a row, and was going to the river agains two players to my right who were just calling with trash. They were really bad hands. I was seeing red so I can’t remember them all, but one of the was 10-2 off. I only remember that one cause of Doyle Brunson’s 10-2 suited. To say there is no collusion is a joke. With tech today there is no way this is not happening. This site is full of these players and you play at your own risk. DO NOT BUY CHIPS!!!!! I was reading through the reviews last night and you will find countless reviews where people are getting scammed and as soon as they have your info your success rate drops significantly. Their customer service is absolute trash. They acknowledge your complaint and they do nothing. I especially am sick of reading reviews on here where they respond with emoji’s and give your the same response. Buy a deck of cards. Deal out 6 hands face up on your coffee table and think about what you would do with each hand. Call, fold or raise, play out the hand and think honestly about what you would do in each position. Calculate your odds, think of possible bluffs. That would be better than wasting anymore time with this app.

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

I've been using the mobile app since October without issue. Five days ago it wouldn't load correctly (had a black screen after start up) so I deleted the app and reinstalled. Now it will not let me login and tech support has only sent canned responses that "...the issue has been fixed.", however it isn't. I have now tried to get this issue resolved 5 times by sending the requested screenshot(s) to them and each time I get the same canned response. This is my last hope for being able to use this app again. Please get tech support to fix the issue.
Will Not Load / Freezing App
by Zaak_V on 2020/12/04 21:05
Was quite excited to try this app. Unfortunately after playing 1 game, it froze and then wouldn’t let me back on the app. Re-Installed and froze on Login. I tried all three apps I could find - Play/Lite/PA and they all crashed on log in. Really disappointed. I don’t usually leave reviews, and I’d be willing to increase this review if there was some resolution. Either way - downloaders beware for now! Posted 12/04/20
Unbelievably rigged. Stay away.
by Makin Birdies 11 on 2020/12/04 03:52
Stay away from this. The only goal of the app is to use their so called “verified” random cards to get you to complete micro transactions for chips. Absolute joke.
Auto-Rebuy

Would love an option to stop auto-rebuys in cash games. But it’s fun playing
Garbage ripoff site

Completely rigged.
Algorithms Way Off
by 03SJK on 2020/11/27 23:22
I’ve played the live games in this app for 6 months now and have realized some u believable crazy hands, many of which were won/lost on the river. To test this out, I recently played 5 hands and went all-in on the first deal each time. 3 people went all in against me and this is how I lost the 3 out of 5: full house, straight, straight flush. The other 2 I kept going all in and ended up losing both of the within 7 hands to a flush and straight. Those are som pretty awesome cards dealt to opponents in under 10 total hands. To be fair, the cards have also broken in my direction from time to time over the 6 months. I personally have not put any money into this app but I have talked to friends that have and they experience crazy results as well. My advice is to play this app at your own risk but expect to see some results that are just not realistic.
Game is a crock of crap
by Compdr56 on 2020/11/26 18:36
They say the cards are random, seems if someone wins 10 hands or more in a row, what would be the odds of that, or if you are dealt all red cards and the on the flop they deal all black cards 20 times in a row, random? Bull

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 rigged against you if you don’t BUY their chips. Cmon man! It’s play money! The only good thing is it doesn’t drain your battery as fast as other apps
Cannot Log into my account
by Downtown_Train on 2020/10/15 02:36
I had just put $150M on my account and then changed my password. Now I cannot log into my account. I have sent numerous emails to their support team and they just tell me to delete the app and then reinstall the app. I have done this numerous times. I have also cleared all the cookie from Safari and logged in from a different wifi network. Nothing works. I want my money back for the chips that I bought so I can play another game poker

Fun for play, not for real poker
by farfrompro on 2020/09/24 16:33
After playing nearly 20k hands, I will say emphatically that the statistical improbabilities in this app are abnormal. They claim otherwise, but it simply isn’t random. Granted, sometimes the improbable swings benefit you, but the point is that it’s not realistic. Especially given that after a losing session, an immediate notification pops up to “get those chips back” by purchasing them through the app. Look, it’s fun for what it is, but it simply doesn’t replicate normal poker.
Lost connection too many times

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.
Where did live games go?
by kwkekdicifkrkenejwkdivi on 2020/09/05 03:13
I love this app, but my favorite thing to do on it used to be the live games, such as War of Bets and Bet on Poker. We’re these games removed? I miss playing them and want to start again.
Good free site

Bet sizing. On mobile bet sizing needs to be more flexible. Occasional cards dealt face down. But game play is solid good platform.
The best hand held poker

So I have played a lot of different poker games on mobile, this by far is the most fun I have had.
So much negativity. No me.
by Hoggercore on 2020/09/01 02:19
I’d like to complain about this game with the hope of a developer seeing this and giving me free chips (squeaky wheel and all that), but honestly, I think this is a great app. I play daily...until I run out of chips. Not sure what will happen then. But I really suggest this for all players with a poker bug!
Most Unfair App
by BookRobAnn on 2020/09/01 00:42
This app is the most unfair app ever. I am a disabled vet and enjoy Texas Holden. I have had WSOP , Full Tilt and Texas Hold-em itself among others and I can say that PokerStars is the most Bogus app ever. They con you into buying more chips and you get comfortable after there 24.99 chip package. Then you buy more as I did the 99.99 package and they immediately start taking everything. Tournaments or hold-em play every hand dealt you is set-up for disaster. Every hand you have straight flush or full house five separate times I was beat with FOUR of a KIND. Unheard of. Do not download this this app. They are not fair vendors of a popular product. Aging is below 1 if I could do so. Thanks.

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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
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 :/
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.
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...
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.
Just need luck, not skill.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/03/01 23:41
Wish I could give it 0 stars. They choose who can win before the hand even starts. If you’re ahead on the flop, prepare to be behind on the river to a gut shot straight, runner runner flush draw, or a two pair. Never seen so many bad beats on the river in my life. If you download this, stay in until the river because I bet you’ll end up hitting if you’re the chosen one. And you’ll immediately be able to tell if you’re the chosen one by if you play 4 9 off suit and hit trips on the flop. Also I have no idea how this is rated 4.6 out of 5 when the majority of the reviews are pretty much what I’ve said. I just looked at the last 100 reviews and 80 percent of them were below three stars. If you’re not just a random poker player look for a different app.
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.
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!
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.
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
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
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. :)
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.
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.
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.
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
It’s okay
by panicrev555 on 2020/07/31 22:40
At the time of writing this review WSOP has 164K reviews to Poker Stars 14K. I’m pretty sure this is due entirely to WSOP’s UI being head and shoulders above Poker Stars’. The problem with WSOP, however, is their algorithms. Yeah, you’re not playing poker over there you’re just playing a video game based on poker. I played Zynga along time ago and clearly that wasn’t entirely random either. I will suffer PokerStars’ feature lacking UI as its hands are at least seemingly authentically random. I haven’t played any tournaments yet though. That is where WSOP was most blatantly not random.
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.
Fix the random number generator please
by tthesaint on 2019/09/29 15:44
The developer needs to work on the shuffle of the cards(random number generator). The deal of the cards has the common problem of not taking into account true odds when dealing. So you start seeing 4 of a kind come off several times a day instead of once a week when you play. I have seen this on many sites but. It on PokerStars in the past when I played for real money.
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!
No support with login issue
by DogSingers on 2020/12/07 14:21
I've been using the mobile app since October without issue. Five days ago it wouldn't load correctly (had a black screen after start up) so I deleted the app and reinstalled. Now it will not let me login and tech support has only sent canned responses that "...the issue has been fixed.", however it isn't. I have now tried to get this issue resolved 5 times by sending the requested screenshot(s) to them and each time I get the same canned response. This is my last hope for being able to use this app again. Please get tech support to fix the issue.
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.
Do not make in app purchases with this app!! You will lose your money.
by ChrisR910 on 2020/07/29 15:37
I’ve been a user of the app for quite a while. I enjoyed playing the game. However, I had purchased chips for 4.99 through the App Store. It immediately showed up on the app and then a few seconds later completely disappeared. I have emailed the contact info for app issues and they have not responded at all. So my money was just taken from me, I have zero chips and zero customer service or acknowledgement. I have gone from a daily user of the app to now not using it anymore. I’m disgusted. Do not make in app purchases with this app!
Great game but...
by hfifouhkgkifliflifmkfvnkcnm on 2021/03/24 16:39
I really enjoyed this game for practicing my poker skills on the go. The only thing that I dislike about the app is they are constantly trying to get you to buy fake money with real money. LOL! However, this keeps the game interesting for me because I am constantly wanting to win so that I don’t run out of money because I’m definitely not buying fake money, with real money. As a business strategy though, I’m sure these guys are killing it!!
Suckered me in
by Mr-b MrB on 2018/08/25 20:22
The game app is good but could be much better. Your Sit n Go spin roulette is such a sham. I’ve played over a hundred games an NEVER had a big payout been awarded and in many cases less than the three player buy-in is the winner take all bounty? What a joke! There’s also the annoying bug that (at least in my iOS device) sometimes doesn’t show my hole yards when action is on me. All and all good game. Do see plenty more bad beats than in live games but I guess this app has plenty of donkeys playing loose too.
Just don’t do it
by Nicky Whits on 2018/07/11 20:14
Don’t play this game if you’re looking for anything similar to an authentic experience. The developers claim that the cards are completely random, but honestly that’s just insulting everyone’s intelligence. I’ve lost so many hands where I was ahead 95% at the flop. The tournaments are always 3-handed for some reason, and the bonus wheel chooses how much you win each game and it’s completely rigged to keep the payouts low so you have to buy chips. It’s so dumb to play a tournament where the payout is significantly less than the 3 buy-ins. Just don’t bother. It’s only going to make you upset. Go outside and be a person instead.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD !
by Yyyyyy129 on 2020/02/03 15:47
This poker app seems harmless but I assure you it is not. While I don’t know if the games are rigged I can tell you the customer service is non existent and if you purchase “play chips” be mindful that when you are charged and the chips are never added to your account there is no way to get a refund or talk to someone to fix the mistake. This has happened to me twice! Waste of time, try WSOP instead. The app developer tried to write a comment under my review but it is all for show. I have sent multiple emails with proof but they do not get a response somehow a 1 star rating does. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP I PROMISE THERE ARE BETTER PLAY MONEY POKER APPS OUT THERE!
I want to love this app
by Calabean on 2020/05/10 23:54
After getting through the basics and having a fun day of playing holdem...ever since I have had significant issues of lag that have seen me blow a $100,000+ lead in seconds and lose my tournament. It is disheartening and appears on the line of a cheat that certain players invoke when losing. I’m uncertain is this is just a problem with this version of the app or what, but it is keeping me from wanting to invest anything, including time into this app. Fun interface when it isn’t glitching and mostly positive experiences with players.

Than I was suddenly back in but it’s a new account!!! I lose all my chips & promotions and get a new dumb profile name. Everything goes to square 1. Super frustrating and not fun since this keeps happening

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!
Garbage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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
by yo _manny on 2021/04/28 14:42
i havent had a glitch or a problem so far so km going to give this a 4 star
Cheating game
by Chizraym on 2021/04/28 13:27
Literally had the higher card of the flush and the other player was awarded the hand. This game cheats you out of chips so you have to keep buying more. Disgusting
Fun game
by cntrlaltdelete21 on 2021/04/21 19:06
I like playing to kill time....seems to go in spurts as fas as winning but that’s poker
So much fun

This game is the best!!!
Freezes
by Horton3465 on 2021/04/20 02:34
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
Seems odd
by Pammy22464 on 2021/04/14 12:17
Many times you don’t get to see your hole cards until you bet. You don’t even get the option to fold. For this reason it’s not real poker.
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.
Fun

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?

Rigged
by Jaque888 on 2021/04/02 23:02
Half the time you’re playing obvious bots that literally can’t lose. Never seen so many quads and coolers in my life. You get a pair, bot gets two, you get two but hit trips, you hit a flush bot hits a full house, you hit a full house bot hit quads. App is programmed so you’ll keep buying chips hope I can find a real app with real world odds. Ridiculous.
Money, money, money
by This Ap is Trash. on 2021/04/02 06:54
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.
Excellent app!!
by Retardo Seal on 2021/03/27 20:08
to get addicted, therefore find yourself keep purchasing chips and of course, waste your time. Then to top it all off, feel pathetic. Trust me, all the negative reviews here are nothing but real, facts and the truth. Just walk your dog or read something. It’s by far more entertaining and worthwhile then spending time on this bxxl - crxp. Can’t believe they have 4.6 ratings overall. That’s probably rigged as well.
Great game but...

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.
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.

Extremely buggy
by Vanpire666 on 2021/03/18 21:29
This game is fun WHEN IT’S WORKING. It seems to lag really hard or completely lose connection way too often. It’s not my or your internet, it’s the app and it’s connection to the servers. Once you lose your connection all your money is up for grabs to everyone else on the table. This game would be more popular if these types of major bugs were resolved.
The pot earning need to be fixed
by A.Avelar123 on 2021/03/12 20:47
The game is great if u like to play poker but there’s a bug that has made me lose close to a million chips because it didn’t distribute the earning from the pot. I had multiple times now were the pot is about 300k and the game gives nobody money. Recently I won a 400k pot and i was told “Huge pot” and “big hand” but when it goes to give me the money I ended up with 20 to 40 thousand. Serious problem that is definitely making the game not enjoyable because each time I lose a massive amount of potential earning and a large sum of my own money which is usually 100-200k.

Terrible app! I disconnect constantly during games and lose a lot of money because of it!! I get kicked out of games, games will lag, and i will be “sitting out” and unable to rejoin my game. This app will lose you money. Go with a company that has better software.
Just need luck, not skill.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/03/01 23:41
Wish I could give it 0 stars. They choose who can win before the hand even starts. If you’re ahead on the flop, prepare to be behind on the river to a gut shot straight, runner runner flush draw, or a two pair. Never seen so many bad beats on the river in my life. If you download this, stay in until the river because I bet you’ll end up hitting if you’re the chosen one. And you’ll immediately be able to tell if you’re the chosen one by if you play 4 9 off suit and hit trips on the flop. Also I have no idea how this is rated 4.6 out of 5 when the majority of the reviews are pretty much what I’ve said. I just looked at the last 100 reviews and 80 percent of them were below three stars. If you’re not just a random poker player look for a different app.
Another one gone
by Brian13851976 on 2021/02/28 05:46
It used to be good but it's done, automatically puts me in, just confusing. I used to play here for money back in the day, now the free play isn't even fun. Try it and you will see what I mean, build up your stack to start and downhill from there.
Scam
by Kshif on 2021/02/21 14:10
You can be at the top of your league or State by millions until the last day and a name pops up suddenly millions ahead which is impossible to earn. Just a scam to get you to buy chips.
Boring, always low winnings

It’s a lie
by msig1848 on 2021/02/14 00:15
They say that it’s random, and it’s cards but omg, I’m done with it I played on and off. I find I always win when I haven’t played for a while and start losing consistently when I’ve been playing. They are trying to get you to buy chips
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.
Terrible Poker App
by Anderson, In on 2021/02/10 02:27
Worst game in the App Store! I’m warning you, this is the most unfair dealing I’ve ever seen. When the bad beats come they just are never ending. Flushes and straights galore and they’re always to beat YOU! They build you up with a few chips to play then all of a sudden you can’t beat you’re blind Grandma!

Random my butt
by Packerstars on 2021/02/03 18:52
After playing 28,000 hands I can say without hesitation the computer likes action and will routinely, not rarely, but quite often give a player two pairs and lose to a straight. You can see it happen. If you have two pair and there is a straight possibly on the board just call and see. And there are only three players that n the tournament. Imagine the odds with only three players and this happening all of the time. You will laugh at how often it actually occurs
Buggy. UI blocks ability to fold.
by LohPhat on 2021/01/26 04:22
It’s happened to me at least once a month. I’m in a game, it’s my turn and I can’t fold. Then the clock runs out and I’m pushed out of the game.
Not random. Is predictable
by kk hh dd on 2021/01/24 05:52
Despite the claim in feedback. The third party you use is not doing there job. Tell me, is this the same “randomness” and “unpredictability” I will see with the real money app when legal poker starts in Michigan? No way will I use you product with real money.

by cubbies06 on 2021/01/12 15:48
I don’t believe there is all random cards in this game. Mostly I feel it is predetermined who is going to win. Some players with great cards continuously lose while others with garbage cards keep winning. Some players will win like 5 or more consecutive hands with crap. Not realistic at all! At least in my eyes. I have had both sides of this coin happen for me. Don’t like it. Ever since you could buy chips this game lost appeal to me and I have been playing for almost 20 years!
Completely 100% rigged.
by waaaaste of time on 2021/01/12 06:10
If you're any good at poker at all you will completely go insane. Don't bother. All they care about is people buying chips. If you are good and win your own chips they will give them away to the suckers.

by Backpacker3785 on 2021/01/05 03:21
Nearly impossible to play sustainably without investing real money. Most three player tournaments only payout twice the buy-in meaning the house is taking a 33% rake on every tourney. Insane.
Good game and all. One thing needed for 5 stars
by Mikeh4405 on 2021/01/04 05:09
I do like the game. Very easy to use and fast play. One thing I think could be beneficial tho. Would be auto top off. For example, you buy in $200k. Play a big hand and lose half to $100k. But have reserves in your bank, If there were a setting to auto top off back to your original buy in or max buy in, that would be great!
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.

Cards are not random and collusion everywhere
by DaniSuMilaBeth on 2020/12/19 14:51
I have been playing for 4 months, around 12 hours a day. I am not a poker pro, but i am learning and studying the game. I started with 100k and worked my way up to 11 million. I didnt buy chips. I watched the adds and spun the wheel and that was enough in the beginning. More often than not, your are dealt a premium hand as soon as you enter the game. I have been dealt Pocket A’s, K’s multiple times in a row. And that happens a lot. ON FIRE! TABLE BOSS! I started to notice the collusion when i was holding premium hands and getting called with absolute trash. I went on tilt and entered another table. I was dealt 5 premium hands in a row, and was going to the river agains two players to my right who were just calling with trash. They were really bad hands. I was seeing red so I can’t remember them all, but one of the was 10-2 off. I only remember that one cause of Doyle Brunson’s 10-2 suited. To say there is no collusion is a joke. With tech today there is no way this is not happening. This site is full of these players and you play at your own risk. DO NOT BUY CHIPS!!!!! I was reading through the reviews last night and you will find countless reviews where people are getting scammed and as soon as they have your info your success rate drops significantly. Their customer service is absolute trash. They acknowledge your complaint and they do nothing. I especially am sick of reading reviews on here where they respond with emoji’s and give your the same response. Buy a deck of cards. Deal out 6 hands face up on your coffee table and think about what you would do with each hand. Call, fold or raise, play out the hand and think honestly about what you would do in each position. Calculate your odds, think of possible bluffs. That would be better than wasting anymore time with this app.

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
Pop ups
by SeattleArea on 2020/12/10 22:24

I've been using the mobile app since October without issue. Five days ago it wouldn't load correctly (had a black screen after start up) so I deleted the app and reinstalled. Now it will not let me login and tech support has only sent canned responses that "...the issue has been fixed.", however it isn't. I have now tried to get this issue resolved 5 times by sending the requested screenshot(s) to them and each time I get the same canned response. This is my last hope for being able to use this app again. Please get tech support to fix the issue.
Will Not Load / Freezing App
by Zaak_V on 2020/12/04 21:05
Was quite excited to try this app. Unfortunately after playing 1 game, it froze and then wouldn’t let me back on the app. Re-Installed and froze on Login. I tried all three apps I could find - Play/Lite/PA and they all crashed on log in. Really disappointed. I don’t usually leave reviews, and I’d be willing to increase this review if there was some resolution. Either way - downloaders beware for now! Posted 12/04/20
Unbelievably rigged. Stay away.

Algorithms Way Off
by 03SJK on 2020/11/27 23:22
I’ve played the live games in this app for 6 months now and have realized some u believable crazy hands, many of which were won/lost on the river. To test this out, I recently played 5 hands and went all-in on the first deal each time. 3 people went all in against me and this is how I lost the 3 out of 5: full house, straight, straight flush. The other 2 I kept going all in and ended up losing both of the within 7 hands to a flush and straight. Those are som pretty awesome cards dealt to opponents in under 10 total hands. To be fair, the cards have also broken in my direction from time to time over the 6 months. I personally have not put any money into this app but I have talked to friends that have and they experience crazy results as well. My advice is to play this app at your own risk but expect to see some results that are just not realistic.
Game is a crock of crap
by Compdr56 on 2020/11/26 18:36
They say the cards are random, seems if someone wins 10 hands or more in a row, what would be the odds of that, or if you are dealt all red cards and the on the flop they deal all black cards 20 times in a row, random? Bull

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.

by farfrompro on 2020/09/24 16:33
After playing nearly 20k hands, I will say emphatically that the statistical improbabilities in this app are abnormal. They claim otherwise, but it simply isn’t random. Granted, sometimes the improbable swings benefit you, but the point is that it’s not realistic. Especially given that after a losing session, an immediate notification pops up to “get those chips back” by purchasing them through the app. Look, it’s fun for what it is, but it simply doesn’t replicate normal poker.

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.

Not sure what will happen then. But I really suggest this for all players with a poker bug!
Most Unfair App
by BookRobAnn on 2020/09/01 00:42
This app is the most unfair app ever. I am a disabled vet and enjoy Texas Holden. I have had WSOP , Full Tilt and Texas Hold-em itself among others and I can say that PokerStars is the most Bogus app ever. They con you into buying more chips and you get comfortable after there 24.99 chip package. Then you buy more as I did the 99.99 package and they immediately start taking everything. Tournaments or hold-em play every hand dealt you is set-up for disaster. Every hand you have straight flush or full house five separate times I was beat with FOUR of a KIND. Unheard of. Do not download this this app. They are not fair vendors of a popular product. Aging is below 1 if I could do so. Thanks.

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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
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 :/
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.
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...
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.
Just need luck, not skill.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/03/01 23:41
Wish I could give it 0 stars. They choose who can win before the hand even starts. If you’re ahead on the flop, prepare to be behind on the river to a gut shot straight, runner runner flush draw, or a two pair. Never seen so many bad beats on the river in my life. If you download this, stay in until the river because I bet you’ll end up hitting if you’re the chosen one. And you’ll immediately be able to tell if you’re the chosen one by if you play 4 9 off suit and hit trips on the flop. Also I have no idea how this is rated 4.6 out of 5 when the majority of the reviews are pretty much what I’ve said. I just looked at the last 100 reviews and 80 percent of them were below three stars. If you’re not just a random poker player look for a different app.
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.
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!
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.
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
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
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. :)
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.
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.
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.
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
It’s okay
by panicrev555 on 2020/07/31 22:40
At the time of writing this review WSOP has 164K reviews to Poker Stars 14K. I’m pretty sure this is due entirely to WSOP’s UI being head and shoulders above Poker Stars’. The problem with WSOP, however, is their algorithms. Yeah, you’re not playing poker over there you’re just playing a video game based on poker. I played Zynga along time ago and clearly that wasn’t entirely random either. I will suffer PokerStars’ feature lacking UI as its hands are at least seemingly authentically random. I haven’t played any tournaments yet though. That is where WSOP was most blatantly not random.
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.
Fix the random number generator please
by tthesaint on 2019/09/29 15:44
The developer needs to work on the shuffle of the cards(random number generator). The deal of the cards has the common problem of not taking into account true odds when dealing. So you start seeing 4 of a kind come off several times a day instead of once a week when you play. I have seen this on many sites but. It on PokerStars in the past when I played for real money.
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!

I've been using the mobile app since October without issue. Five days ago it wouldn't load correctly (had a black screen after start up) so I deleted the app and reinstalled. Now it will not let me login and tech support has only sent canned responses that "...the issue has been fixed.", however it isn't. I have now tried to get this issue resolved 5 times by sending the requested screenshot(s) to them and each time I get the same canned response. This is my last hope for being able to use this app again. Please get tech support to fix the issue.
Terrible algorithm

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.
Do not make in app purchases with this app!! You will lose your money.

I’ve been a user of the app for quite a while. I enjoyed playing the game. However, I had purchased chips for 4.99 through the App Store. It immediately showed up on the app and then a few seconds later completely disappeared. I have emailed the contact info for app issues and they have not responded at all. So my money was just taken from me, I have zero chips and zero customer service or acknowledgement. I have gone from a daily user of the app to now not using it anymore. I’m disgusted. Do not make in app purchases with this app!
Great game but...

I really enjoyed this game for practicing my poker skills on the go. The only thing that I dislike about the app is they are constantly trying to get you to buy fake money with real money. LOL! However, this keeps the game interesting for me because I am constantly wanting to win so that I don’t run out of money because I’m definitely not buying fake money, with real money. As a business strategy though, I’m sure these guys are killing it!!
Suckered me in

The game app is good but could be much better. Your Sit n Go spin roulette is such a sham. I’ve played over a hundred games an NEVER had a big payout been awarded and in many cases less than the three player buy-in is the winner take all bounty? What a joke! There’s also the annoying bug that (at least in my iOS device) sometimes doesn’t show my hole yards when action is on me. All and all good game. Do see plenty more bad beats than in live games but I guess this app has plenty of donkeys playing loose too.
Just don’t do it

Don’t play this game if you’re looking for anything similar to an authentic experience. The developers claim that the cards are completely random, but honestly that’s just insulting everyone’s intelligence. I’ve lost so many hands where I was ahead 95% at the flop. The tournaments are always 3-handed for some reason, and the bonus wheel chooses how much you win each game and it’s completely rigged to keep the payouts low so you have to buy chips. It’s so dumb to play a tournament where the payout is significantly less than the 3 buy-ins. Just don’t bother. It’s only going to make you upset. Go outside and be a person instead.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD !

This poker app seems harmless but I assure you it is not. While I don’t know if the games are rigged I can tell you the customer service is non existent and if you purchase “play chips” be mindful that when you are charged and the chips are never added to your account there is no way to get a refund or talk to someone to fix the mistake. This has happened to me twice! Waste of time, try WSOP instead. The app developer tried to write a comment under my review but it is all for show. I have sent multiple emails with proof but they do not get a response somehow a 1 star rating does. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP I PROMISE THERE ARE BETTER PLAY MONEY POKER APPS OUT THERE!
I want to love this app

After getting through the basics and having a fun day of playing holdem...ever since I have had significant issues of lag that have seen me blow a $100,000+ lead in seconds and lose my tournament. It is disheartening and appears on the line of a cheat that certain players invoke when losing. I’m uncertain is this is just a problem with this version of the app or what, but it is keeping me from wanting to invest anything, including time into this app. Fun interface when it isn’t glitching and mostly positive experiences with players.
