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.
Unbelievably rigged
by Makin Birdies 11 on 2020/09/23 14:50
I have been on both sides of this rigged app... it’s absolutely unacceptable that it suggests the highest end tournament you can play every time you enter to the point where you accidentally click into a tournament and lose half of your bank to a rigged hand. The bad beats are 100% programmed into the code... there’s no way the number of bad beats I’ve seen are coincidental. What an absolute joke. STAY AWAY! Think about it... how else would they get you to do micro transactions to fund their rigged app?
Lost connection too many times
by jrex1182 on 2020/09/12 01:10
Will drop connection to server many times. Lost good pots due to this
Great poker
by MightyMed on 2020/09/09 14:29
Having a great time playing poker. The games are real with other real players. Lots of opportunity to get free chips. Never a need to buy chips.
Very good
by pimpdaddyballs on 2020/09/09 02:21
Better then the other poker games I played , very well designed and got the hang of it pretty fast
Trend when you fold.
by willywacko on 2020/09/08 15:27
I noticed as soon as you fold a matching card appears
Love the game but...
by MeChaniC770991 on 2020/09/07 07:35
Love this game. Easy to use.....please get rid of the elevator music going on in the background. It’s annoying.
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
by big dbdhsnd on 2020/09/03 23:19
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
by Gabriel Reddoch on 2020/09/01 12:21
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.
Fun to play
by BigWaveDave49 on 2020/08/25 03:57
Fun, love to play. Great format. They were more than fair with me after a tournament withdrawal mixup and replaced 50M chips. Just wish the crazy runouts and bad beats would happen less often.
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.
Keep disconnecting
by zap..? on 2020/08/20 17:17
Mobile app need keep updating bad connections
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.
Great Game
by Frankedan on 2020/08/05 03:39
Awesome game play, needs Blackjack though!!!
Misleading!
by KJPod on 2020/08/02 21:12
This is not an interface to the PokerStars website but a clone of Jackpot Poker. Which is an okay game but when I’m trying to find a home game hosted on PokerStars this does not get me there.
Serious connection issues
by chris123345784 on 2020/08/02 03:02
If I’m connecting with just my phone or WiFi, I always have issues. I send concerns but don’t receive any constructive feedback, and what I receive is always really late. I only use it because I can host home games. Otherwise it is awful.
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.
Spin n’ go fun
by Dizzy1030 on 2020/07/31 03:34
Very good practice for some spin n goes as well as mastering your edge
App is messed up, and doesn’t work correctly.
by mudclown on 2020/07/31 02:44
I played a tournament, and every time I won, the opponent would get my winnings. Everytime my opponent won, on every single hand. This has happened numerous times before today also, so the developers need to fix this application.
Great Game and easy game to play
by Datoneguywiththetongue on 2020/07/30 19:07
I like the designs and the play style of the game. Very well done.
(Beware) They will take your $$
by GAPPLE1971 on 2020/07/30 01:51
I paid $24.99 two times like a dummy and didn’t get my chips. The money left my account pretty much instantly. But they make it so difficult to get it back. I sent screenshots. All the need to do is pay it back to my Paypal account. But have not received anything. They do this to enough people they make millions. Thieves!
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!
Not giving me the money for upgrades x 2

DONT BUY CHIPS
by Trump > Obama on 2020/07/27 22:28
They will charge you but not give you chips. Happened to me twice and you have to dispute directly with Apple to get a refund.
Game has site players if you win
by Suzme on 2020/07/27 21:53
They then set up incredible hands and lure player with chips all in order to make players buy chips.
best poker game
by shaya Az on 2020/07/26 10:16

Thieves and liars
by N8isgr8! on 2020/07/26 07:37
Avoid this at all cost. I downloaded the app and purchased $1000 USD for play chips in a six week period. The last two purchases were not credited to my bankroll and the developers refuse to acknowledge the flaw or credit the chips. Additionally, when joining a tournament, I waited for a while for someone to show up but there were no opponents, so I left, clicked refund my entry fee and lost another 250 million chips. Total scam. I don’t know how these guys sleep at night. I’ll never make another purchase with them and would advise anyone to play better apps. Lesson learned.
didn’t get my chips
by Sjmakcoownsnxlosnskz on 2020/07/25 20:19
bought starter pack and I never got the chips nor the gold, please help
Don’t spend money
by bryce422422 on 2020/07/25 15:35
I spent 2 dollars on this game on two separate occasions and didn’t get anything for my money. I bought chips but never received them!
Ok had to check
by NiZ-333 on 2020/07/25 02:43
Just wanted to see if anybody else didn’t receive they’re chips after purchase. Been two days now 2 email submissions with receipt attached and screen shots still waiting on a response. Was working just fine up till a couple days ago. Hope the fix it SOON!I want my 37 million in chips and 3 spins I purchased!!!!!!
Don’t buy chips!!
by mrsserrive on 2020/07/24 22:23
This app is a joke. I purchased plenty of chips they charged me 41.00$ and the chips were never added to my account! There is no way to talk to someone or try the get a refund! This is a shame!
Got jacked
by got jacked11111111 on 2020/07/24 14:16
Downloaded this app, purchased 2 starter chip packs, never received them. Contacted Apple, told me to contact this app support, can’t submit the claim cause I don’t have a facebook. Awesome job pokerstars! You got $6 of mine! Don’t spend it all in one place! :)
Errors on sign-in
by pelee guy on 2020/07/24 04:18
Too often when logging in, a Tournament will automatically deduct up to $2.5 mil. & when I try to “exit to lobby”, the whole $2.5 million is deducted & lost. Bad flaw in game
Far too predictable
by Packerstars on 2020/07/22 01:50
After playing over 15,000 hands I can tell the other players exactly when they will beat my three of a kind with a straight on the river. Or tell them not to call my raise because I will hit a flush on the river. And it’s always on the river beating a good hand. The app will routinely set up two good hands against each other to get two people all in. In the end it’s just far too predictable
Fun
by Doc rock Detroit on 2020/07/21 06:05
Good hold em poker game. Couldn’t figure out how to pick my own name though. Not a lot of donks on this site compared to others. Enjoy. It’s free
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
Nice pair for Full Tilt
by k25263$8 on 2020/07/17 02:00
I have both apps, and they both pair very well together. Double the daily bonus.

Not bad. Worth downloading.
by Mbar3456 on 2020/07/10 17:25
It's a great app, plenty of free chips to go around too, which do transfer over to the desktop app when you login there. I'm glad I found it. That said, a few critiques/suggestions: • In settings there needs to be an option to turn off music without turning off all sounds • There needs to be a way to revert to displaying username when you unlink Facebook • There seems to be no way to buy in with a custom amount even on a table with a 20-50K buy-in. It's always 50K. You can only add a custom amount later, if you bust. • 9 max please I'd play this way more if I could grind on a full ring table Other than that though it's great. I've probably got a few more suggestions I can't think of, I'll edit them in later.

Glitchy
by Pilot77265 on 2020/07/04 04:49
A very entertaining app and good poker play. Careful spending money on large quantities of chips though, you can lose them when the app glitches or reloads on its own. I’ve lost $100 million in chips recently without playing a hand.
Slow servers in the US
by Dj_usmc_0908 on 2020/07/02 03:20
I live in Texas with incredible WiFi but this app still times me out on my hands. It’s unusable, go with Zynga poker instead. You’ll lose your money on this site by folding your best hands because it can’t respond in time
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!
Worst game ever
by Dr Danney peachtree on 2020/06/25 23:44
This game is the worse. I know they say they have no bots, but they do, I have seen them and then they come back with a different profile pic or no profile pic. Also there are too many players that seem to know what the river card is going to be and place enormous bets consistently and win several times in a row. Makes the game not enjoyable. Will be deleting this game.
Mike
by Mikey mc r on 2020/06/24 15:28
I can’t seem to get any instructions for the game like a beginners option. For example, I can’t see how to fold on the table. The clock just runs out and kicks me off. Please help.
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.
Fun real poker
by CalgaryBill on 2020/06/22 06:08
I like this as it plays like real poker. Odds are correct and very good players. Only wish they had 9 player cash games.
What a joke
by Kalimdor- on 2020/06/20 23:15
Play money is set up to make sure two go to a show down to maximize a rake. And to maximize buy backs. Yay PokerStars

Disconnects constantly from servers
by Bobbyfistering on 2020/06/16 17:24
Lost $700,000 in disconnects from the server. Begins with me playing a bet or calling, having it not register, then either disconnecting (where I fold constantly and lose all my chips) or having a useless “I’m back” button that doesn’t do anything. I don’t even want to play anymore since I lose my chips to these glitches more often than being able to complete a game and win my chips back.
Scam
by PreEasy22 on 2020/06/14 02:46
App is rigged so you lose and pump more money in.. that’s EXACTLY WHAT IT IS.
Do not spend real money!

Solid app
by bballer1188 on 2020/06/12 02:25
Fun way to quickly play games. I like the open table game format. To earn a 5 star the app would have more tournament style options other than sit and go for 3 players. Overall I have enjoyed the game play.
Timer wrecks the home game
by Th20hwhay on 2020/06/10 16:12
This review is about home games. The only option is to play fir play money, which is fine, BUT You can’t configure anything. You have to play with a timer on fast. There is no time to even chat with your friends. You can’t even pause the game. This takes all the socializing out of the game. I’d give this 5 stars if you could play with the timer off and be able to set your buy ins and antes, but as this stands this app is just designed to burn through chips so you have to buy more.
Great

Thieves
by Rhell814 on 2020/05/27 01:04
They steal money. Avoid this app by all means. Only people playing are developers. Then no help available for months. But if a deposit bounces emails every day. Save the stress and find something better.
Terrible. Keeps dropping me out of hands.
by KarPriTas on 2020/05/24 22:40
This app is TERRIBLE. Constantly dropping me out of hands and not letting me back in games before I've been forced to good several hands.
Crashes
by superbanjo4345 on 2020/05/21 21:48
This App often awards the pot to the wrong hand when it doesn’t crash when you open it. It was fun but the app won’t open now.
The game is wrong
by Sid123931 on 2020/05/21 04:27
Iv had multiple winning hands given to other players! These bugs need to be fixed! I won’t be playing if this keeps up. I’m actually convinced it’s rigged to get us to pay money for chips.
Garbage
by PrickleyFingers on 2020/05/16 03:51
Can’t even calculate what hand wins correctly.
Love it
by Mr.RealSirMan on 2020/05/14 21:42
Honestly played a lot of poker games and I love this one one. Yes some days you lose because the cards aren’t in your favor but hone at my every day you can break even as long as you’re smart.
Great idea, bad execution
by op-timisim on 2020/05/14 04:20
If the app worked as intended the UX would be good, but it lags and has issues. On top of that the support response is nonexistent. Decent layout and graphic design don’t matter if the product does not fulfill its intended purpose.
Take my chips
by jenniferaschrothwalk on 2020/05/12 08:13
This is my favorite setup. Enjoy quick tourneys. But I still don’t understand why when I go to reg table, I’ll sit there and no matter how long I play, when I leave or change tables , you take my chips. Curious as to why that is? I don’t pay for chips for this reason ...do the people who pay for chips know this?
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.
Crashed!!
by Kent414 on 2020/05/10 23:03
Too slow and keep crash on my iPhone even I’m on very good WiFi!!! Tired of losing money when it’s crashed in mid hands !
A glitch took all of my chips
by AceFoxQT38 on 2020/05/10 03:15
I was having fun playing this during lockdown...started winning, brought my stack up to a few million. Then all of the sudden...only 93,000 chips. Literally just disappeared. Fun game, but don’t pay real money. I’ve reached out via email with no luck. I’m glad I didn’t pay for those chips...but I’m sure it’s happened to someone who has.
Can not reset password
by Joednc on 2020/05/09 05:17
App is terrible can not reset passwords. Shows at login. Does not work.
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.

by Mohsin Javed Cheema on 2020/05/05 16:43
Have to say the hands are actually random. Most of all the interface is intuitive and fun to use. Finally a good poker game.
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.
Only slots...
by JH-SouthBound on 2020/05/04 02:47
Software team dropped the ball on testing. Now I have only slots. Just sloppy.
Fun but why doesn’t it let me play poker
by xcooldude007x on 2020/05/04 02:33
Some days I go on the app and there are only slots. It won’t let me play poker
Where is the poker?
by TheHomelessGuy on 2020/05/04 00:57
I recently uploaded this app and have been enjoying the game. But I have been experiencing some glitches with the awards program, and all day today I haven’t been able to play any poker because the tab for the poker games is now missing. All that’s available to me are the slots. I don’t enjoy slots. I came here for the poker!
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.
Gets stuck
by gardenpaws on 2020/05/03 23:47
I find the game stuck in slots and cannot get back to poker unless I delete and reinstall
No hold’em, only slots...
by Appsturd on 2020/05/03 22:58
Only game available is slots
Only slots where are the poker tables

Was playing poker now I only see slots annoying
Only has slots?
by User88884444 on 2020/05/03 21:40
This is supposedly a poker app but the only games I can see are slots.
Garbage
by New user 221 on 2020/05/03 15:20
This app is garbage. They disable Holdem if you don’t buy anything. They won’t let you play for free ever though purchases are not required. Do not download unless you plan on buying chips and spending actual money. This app should be banned for false advertising. In addition, it was constantly disconnecting.
Terrible
by Stormy_0_5 on 2020/05/03 14:17
My games so glitches that I can’t even play poker, all I can play is slots, I downloaded the game to play poker not slots.
GREAT GAME
by patriots suc on 2020/04/29 16:24
Yes it is computer. But you can still improve your game . Just play exactly the way you know best . Don’t worry about others play . Your experience is what you make of it . Just like life and real dealing . EMBRACE AND ENJOY. It’s a game .
Slow lousy game
by mpn16 on 2020/04/29 03:34
If you like to play with a bunch of grand mothers who can’t read or act play here. Sore losers too. Game is not realistic either. You get one winning hand and six losing ones and repeats itself.

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
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Can you give a negative star review? -⭐️
by SkisaWinner on 2020/04/26 20:11
Now that PokerStars has removed the 6 player “HoldEm” tables; completely gone & was what I mostly played, they can kiss this player goodbye!!! I played this game on occasion and climbed fairly well on my own and they have removed HoldEm completely. WTH?!!??!?!? Well, I hate that I have to, because their HoldEm rooms were pretty well laid out; insta-chat, player info, advance opportunities & so-forth. Even their customer service was decent; messaging was easy enough & quick to respond. So, I hope they listen to their customers & read my and other’s reviews, (I will check back in a week, or so to see if they have) I can honestly say, that if HoldEm doesn’t return in what I enjoyed most about the game, I will dump this game & they will have lost a customer!!! And I imagine many, many others will, if not have already followed suit!
Garbage. Stay away.
by Babaju2 on 2019/06/03 06:50
This isn’t real Poker. It’s completely rigged. I had a 40% tournament win rate when I was beginner/novice rank. But now that I’m in ‘skilled,’ I’ve lost about 20 tournaments in a row with maybe ONE win in between for only a 1.5x gain and my win rate has dropped to 37%. I am not exaggerating. Ever since my rank has been in ‘skilled’ tier, almost every single hand that I raise, the other two players call me with absolutely nothing and then one of them hits the nuts on the river. I have lost with pocket aces to quad 2’s TWICE this week. After you begin requiring a large amount of winnings to advance to the next tier, the game tries very VERY hard to clean you because it knows you’re likely to spend. It’s merely a cash grab, nothing more. It’s also full of glitches such as having your cards dealt to your face down, or being unable to raise. Big waste of time.
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
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
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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
Its fun
by ace14451 on 2018/11/23 18:37
Easy to use I’ve played real money when I was able too. What I like about this is there’s good players on here. There ties to Facebook I’m not thrilled about but at least they can’t multi play like on the other sites I play on three and IMO multiple tables is not real poker. You can’t do that in a casino. Very fun and interactive if you know how to play on a free site you do good. If you think you’re all that maybe not your thing
Server connection closed down & had to reset my phone due to it freezing up
by Stairway2Se7en on 2020/09/05 19:03
I’ve tried signing and it states “Connection closed by server” I reset my phone, tried it again and began loading up and the same thing happened. My app is up to date. My WiFi is up and working because I checked that first. Very disappointed because now my husband and I cannot play against one another on our downtime at the tables. What’s going on ? And since the software upgrade on your website AND apples update, the last 4x I’ve tried spinning for extra play money, I’ve had to reset my phone every single time !! It freezes up.
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.
Poker stars.
by RandyCJason on 2019/05/19 11:04
So I played this now for about eight months and I like it quite a bit as a lot of variety of the games as well as people who actually want to play the game correctly although when I’ve made purchases I am curious to know what the gold collecting really Benifits.. Otherwise compared to other Casino apps this is the most interactive and life like baths occur and war of bets is fun too!!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
Had to take off 2 stars
by Ron Don Volante on 2019/01/20 21:59
The regular Hold em is fine. The amount of straights and flushes in the 3 player tournaments is a little fishy though. As long as I have more chips than the other player and go all in I can expect to hit a straight on the river. The app will do whatever it can to end the tournament as quick as possible... when people aren’t losing, developers aren’t making money. Still not as greedy as the other app tournaments.
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.
Nothing legitimate about this game.
by Puckster9999 on 2019/02/19 04:10
There is absolutely nothing legitimate about the poker in this game. Hands are set up and outcomes are predetermined. I have played games where the same player has gotten four of a kind 2 X, 2 flushes and a straight in successive hands. Either this game allows players to cheat and does nothing about it or the hands are set up. I would highly recommend not downloading or playing this game unless you’re ready to throw your money away or get a full house but lose to a player with 4 of a kind. Statistically none of the hands that occur in this game are possible.
Thieves and liars
by N8isgr8! on 2020/07/26 07:37
Avoid this at all cost. I downloaded the app and purchased $1000 USD for play chips in a six week period. The last two purchases were not credited to my bankroll and the developers refuse to acknowledge the flaw or credit the chips. Additionally, when joining a tournament, I waited for a while for someone to show up but there were no opponents, so I left, clicked refund my entry fee and lost another 250 million chips. Total scam. I don’t know how these guys sleep at night. I’ll never make another purchase with them and would advise anyone to play better apps. Lesson learned.
This app will not help you learn the game of poker
by dmbatt on 2019/04/06 15:09
As fate as ease of use and speed of game play, I have no complaints. The issue I have is that all tables are 3 handed & play chips encourage players to bet with absolutely no concept of range. I broke out of a tournament when a player went all in first hand with jack/2 off suit while I was holding AQ suited. When would this ever happen at a real poker table? This sort of thing makes this app unhelpful at best. If you want to practice your poker skills, don’t play here. Sorry to the developers.
Another “buy more coin app”
by Dogg2013 on 2018/03/25 00:48
Graphics are great, but it’s just another buy more coins app. You couldn’t buy a winning hand here. Deals are unrealistic. I have never been dealt so many lousy cards so consistently, and when you finally get a decent hand someone always has a better one. When you exit the game to the lobby the first thing that pops up is to buy more coin. Maybe someday there will be an app where we can just have fun playing!!!
Not so sure...
by Oldwormwood on 2019/10/10 23:32
The interface is well designed, and it is great to play against players from around the world. But in the Texas Hold Em game, the starting hands, flops, turns, and rivers seem to be predetermined. I have not way to prove it, but it is my impression. Compared to live in-person gameplay, there seem to be many more flushes and straights than you would otherwise see. It is fun app, but I’d like to learn a bit more about the real “randomness” of the deals.
A joke
by Nuttles21 on 2018/10/08 17:04
It’s going to cost you to keep chips in the bank and then some. Don’t plan on just wanting to play a little everyday without buying the chip packages that are $100 plus. And the sit and go’s never EVER spin to play for very much. Most the time it’s just barely double what the buy in is. There’s always someone that literally hits anything and everything but when your on the streak is few and once in a lifetime. I love playing poker but not for $25 a day, and I’m a percentage numbers player.
Not Sure What’s Going on Here.
by Yo nothing on 2020/04/27 02:52
I joined Poker Star Play a few days ago to play Hold’em. I was really liking it. Graphics are good games are solid. Then a couple days ago Texas Hold’em was no longer a choice on the app. All the other games are there, but I’m not interested in those. There is no help tab or support available from the app. When I googled, to look for answers, nothing comes up. Googled PokerStars FAQ, click the link and get missing page try again. Just aggravating. I know it’s just play money. Trying to survive stay at home order.

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.
Unbelievably rigged
by Makin Birdies 11 on 2020/09/23 14:50
I have been on both sides of this rigged app... it’s absolutely unacceptable that it suggests the highest end tournament you can play every time you enter to the point where you accidentally click into a tournament and lose half of your bank to a rigged hand. The bad beats are 100% programmed into the code... there’s no way the number of bad beats I’ve seen are coincidental. What an absolute joke. STAY AWAY! Think about it... how else would they get you to do micro transactions to fund their rigged app?
Lost connection too many times
by jrex1182 on 2020/09/12 01:10
Will drop connection to server many times. Lost good pots due to this
Great poker
by MightyMed on 2020/09/09 14:29
Having a great time playing poker. The games are real with other real players. Lots of opportunity to get free chips. Never a need to buy chips.
Very good
by pimpdaddyballs on 2020/09/09 02:21
Better then the other poker games I played , very well designed and got the hang of it pretty fast
Trend when you fold.
by willywacko on 2020/09/08 15:27
I noticed as soon as you fold a matching card appears
Love the game but...
by MeChaniC770991 on 2020/09/07 07:35
Love this game. Easy to use.....please get rid of the elevator music going on in the background. It’s annoying.
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
by big dbdhsnd on 2020/09/03 23:19
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
by Gabriel Reddoch on 2020/09/01 12:21
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.
Fun to play
by BigWaveDave49 on 2020/08/25 03:57
Fun, love to play. Great format. They were more than fair with me after a tournament withdrawal mixup and replaced 50M chips. Just wish the crazy runouts and bad beats would happen less often.
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.........

Awesome game play, needs Blackjack though!!!
Misleading!
by KJPod on 2020/08/02 21:12
This is not an interface to the PokerStars website but a clone of Jackpot Poker. Which is an okay game but when I’m trying to find a home game hosted on PokerStars this does not get me there.
Serious connection issues
by chris123345784 on 2020/08/02 03:02
If I’m connecting with just my phone or WiFi, I always have issues. I send concerns but don’t receive any constructive feedback, and what I receive is always really late. I only use it because I can host home games. Otherwise it is awful.
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.
Spin n’ go fun
by Dizzy1030 on 2020/07/31 03:34
Very good practice for some spin n goes as well as mastering your edge
App is messed up, and doesn’t work correctly.
by mudclown on 2020/07/31 02:44
I played a tournament, and every time I won, the opponent would get my winnings. Everytime my opponent won, on every single hand. This has happened numerous times before today also, so the developers need to fix this application.
Great Game and easy game to play
by Datoneguywiththetongue on 2020/07/30 19:07
I like the designs and the play style of the game. Very well done.
(Beware) They will take your $$
by GAPPLE1971 on 2020/07/30 01:51
I paid $24.99 two times like a dummy and didn’t get my chips. The money left my account pretty much instantly. But they make it so difficult to get it back. I sent screenshots. All the need to do is pay it back to my Paypal account. But have not received anything. They do this to enough people they make millions. Thieves!

DONT BUY CHIPS
by Trump > Obama on 2020/07/27 22:28
They will charge you but not give you chips. Happened to me twice and you have to dispute directly with Apple to get a refund.
Game has site players if you win
by Suzme on 2020/07/27 21:53
They then set up incredible hands and lure player with chips all in order to make players buy chips.
best poker game

Thieves and liars

Avoid this at all cost. I downloaded the app and purchased $1000 USD for play chips in a six week period. The last two purchases were not credited to my bankroll and the developers refuse to acknowledge the flaw or credit the chips. Additionally, when joining a tournament, I waited for a while for someone to show up but there were no opponents, so I left, clicked refund my entry fee and lost another 250 million chips. Total scam. I don’t know how these guys sleep at night. I’ll never make another purchase with them and would advise anyone to play better apps. Lesson learned.
didn’t get my chips
by Sjmakcoownsnxlosnskz on 2020/07/25 20:19
bought starter pack and I never got the chips nor the gold, please help
Don’t spend money
by bryce422422 on 2020/07/25 15:35
I spent 2 dollars on this game on two separate occasions and didn’t get anything for my money. I bought chips but never received them!
Ok had to check
by NiZ-333 on 2020/07/25 02:43
Just wanted to see if anybody else didn’t receive they’re chips after purchase. Been two days now 2 email submissions with receipt attached and screen shots still waiting on a response. Was working just fine up till a couple days ago. Hope the fix it SOON!I want my 37 million in chips and 3 spins I purchased!!!!!!
Don’t buy chips!!
by mrsserrive on 2020/07/24 22:23
This app is a joke. I purchased plenty of chips they charged me 41.00$ and the chips were never added to my account! There is no way to talk to someone or try the get a refund! This is a shame!
Got jacked
by got jacked11111111 on 2020/07/24 14:16
Downloaded this app, purchased 2 starter chip packs, never received them. Contacted Apple, told me to contact this app support, can’t submit the claim cause I don’t have a facebook. Awesome job pokerstars! You got $6 of mine! Don’t spend it all in one place! :)
Errors on sign-in
by pelee guy on 2020/07/24 04:18
Too often when logging in, a Tournament will automatically deduct up to $2.5 mil. & when I try to “exit to lobby”, the whole $2.5 million is deducted & lost. Bad flaw in game
Far too predictable
by Packerstars on 2020/07/22 01:50
After playing over 15,000 hands I can tell the other players exactly when they will beat my three of a kind with a straight on the river. Or tell them not to call my raise because I will hit a flush on the river. And it’s always on the river beating a good hand. The app will routinely set up two good hands against each other to get two people all in. In the end it’s just far too predictable
Fun
by Doc rock Detroit on 2020/07/21 06:05
Good hold em poker game. Couldn’t figure out how to pick my own name though. Not a lot of donks on this site compared to others. Enjoy. It’s free
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
Nice pair for Full Tilt

It's a great app, plenty of free chips to go around too, which do transfer over to the desktop app when you login there. I'm glad I found it. That said, a few critiques/suggestions: • In settings there needs to be an option to turn off music without turning off all sounds • There needs to be a way to revert to displaying username when you unlink Facebook • There seems to be no way to buy in with a custom amount even on a table with a 20-50K buy-in. It's always 50K. You can only add a custom amount later, if you bust. • 9 max please I'd play this way more if I could grind on a full ring table Other than that though it's great. I've probably got a few more suggestions I can't think of, I'll edit them in later.

Glitchy
by Pilot77265 on 2020/07/04 04:49
A very entertaining app and good poker play. Careful spending money on large quantities of chips though, you can lose them when the app glitches or reloads on its own. I’ve lost $100 million in chips recently without playing a hand.
Slow servers in the US
by Dj_usmc_0908 on 2020/07/02 03:20
I live in Texas with incredible WiFi but this app still times me out on my hands. It’s unusable, go with Zynga poker instead. You’ll lose your money on this site by folding your best hands because it can’t respond in time
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!
Worst game ever
by Dr Danney peachtree on 2020/06/25 23:44
This game is the worse. I know they say they have no bots, but they do, I have seen them and then they come back with a different profile pic or no profile pic. Also there are too many players that seem to know what the river card is going to be and place enormous bets consistently and win several times in a row. Makes the game not enjoyable. Will be deleting this game.
Mike
by Mikey mc r on 2020/06/24 15:28
I can’t seem to get any instructions for the game like a beginners option. For example, I can’t see how to fold on the table. The clock just runs out and kicks me off. Please help.
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.
Fun real poker
by CalgaryBill on 2020/06/22 06:08
I like this as it plays like real poker. Odds are correct and very good players. Only wish they had 9 player cash games.
What a joke
by Kalimdor- on 2020/06/20 23:15
Play money is set up to make sure two go to a show down to maximize a rake. And to maximize buy backs. Yay PokerStars

Disconnects constantly from servers
by Bobbyfistering on 2020/06/16 17:24
Lost $700,000 in disconnects from the server. Begins with me playing a bet or calling, having it not register, then either disconnecting (where I fold constantly and lose all my chips) or having a useless “I’m back” button that doesn’t do anything. I don’t even want to play anymore since I lose my chips to these glitches more often than being able to complete a game and win my chips back.
Scam
by PreEasy22 on 2020/06/14 02:46
App is rigged so you lose and pump more money in.. that’s EXACTLY WHAT IT IS.
Do not spend real money!

Solid app
by bballer1188 on 2020/06/12 02:25
Fun way to quickly play games. I like the open table game format. To earn a 5 star the app would have more tournament style options other than sit and go for 3 players. Overall I have enjoyed the game play.
Timer wrecks the home game
by Th20hwhay on 2020/06/10 16:12
This review is about home games. The only option is to play fir play money, which is fine, BUT You can’t configure anything. You have to play with a timer on fast. There is no time to even chat with your friends. You can’t even pause the game. This takes all the socializing out of the game. I’d give this 5 stars if you could play with the timer off and be able to set your buy ins and antes, but as this stands this app is just designed to burn through chips so you have to buy more.
Great

Thieves
by Rhell814 on 2020/05/27 01:04
They steal money. Avoid this app by all means. Only people playing are developers. Then no help available for months. But if a deposit bounces emails every day. Save the stress and find something better.
Terrible. Keeps dropping me out of hands.
by KarPriTas on 2020/05/24 22:40
This app is TERRIBLE. Constantly dropping me out of hands and not letting me back in games before I've been forced to good several hands.
Crashes
by superbanjo4345 on 2020/05/21 21:48
This App often awards the pot to the wrong hand when it doesn’t crash when you open it. It was fun but the app won’t open now.
The game is wrong
by Sid123931 on 2020/05/21 04:27
Iv had multiple winning hands given to other players! These bugs need to be fixed! I won’t be playing if this keeps up. I’m actually convinced it’s rigged to get us to pay money for chips.
Garbage
by PrickleyFingers on 2020/05/16 03:51
Can’t even calculate what hand wins correctly.
Love it
by Mr.RealSirMan on 2020/05/14 21:42
Honestly played a lot of poker games and I love this one one. Yes some days you lose because the cards aren’t in your favor but hone at my every day you can break even as long as you’re smart.
Great idea, bad execution
by op-timisim on 2020/05/14 04:20
If the app worked as intended the UX would be good, but it lags and has issues. On top of that the support response is nonexistent. Decent layout and graphic design don’t matter if the product does not fulfill its intended purpose.
Take my chips
by jenniferaschrothwalk on 2020/05/12 08:13
This is my favorite setup. Enjoy quick tourneys. But I still don’t understand why when I go to reg table, I’ll sit there and no matter how long I play, when I leave or change tables , you take my chips. Curious as to why that is? I don’t pay for chips for this reason ...do the people who pay for chips know this?
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.
Crashed!!
by Kent414 on 2020/05/10 23:03
Too slow and keep crash on my iPhone even I’m on very good WiFi!!! Tired of losing money when it’s crashed in mid hands !
A glitch took all of my chips
by AceFoxQT38 on 2020/05/10 03:15
I was having fun playing this during lockdown...started winning, brought my stack up to a few million. Then all of the sudden...only 93,000 chips. Literally just disappeared. Fun game, but don’t pay real money. I’ve reached out via email with no luck. I’m glad I didn’t pay for those chips...but I’m sure it’s happened to someone who has.

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.

Have to say the hands are actually random. Most of all the interface is intuitive and fun to use. Finally a good poker game.
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.
Only slots...
by JH-SouthBound on 2020/05/04 02:47
Software team dropped the ball on testing. Now I have only slots. Just sloppy.
Fun but why doesn’t it let me play poker

Some days I go on the app and there are only slots. It won’t let me play poker
Where is the poker?
by TheHomelessGuy on 2020/05/04 00:57
I recently uploaded this app and have been enjoying the game. But I have been experiencing some glitches with the awards program, and all day today I haven’t been able to play any poker because the tab for the poker games is now missing. All that’s available to me are the slots. I don’t enjoy slots. I came here for the poker!
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.
Gets stuck

Garbage
by New user 221 on 2020/05/03 15:20
This app is garbage. They disable Holdem if you don’t buy anything. They won’t let you play for free ever though purchases are not required. Do not download unless you plan on buying chips and spending actual money. This app should be banned for false advertising. In addition, it was constantly disconnecting.
Terrible

Yes it is computer. But you can still improve your game . Just play exactly the way you know best . Don’t worry about others play . Your experience is what you make of it . Just like life and real dealing . EMBRACE AND ENJOY. It’s a game .
Slow lousy game
by mpn16 on 2020/04/29 03:34

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
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Can you give a negative star review? -⭐️
by SkisaWinner on 2020/04/26 20:11
Now that PokerStars has removed the 6 player “HoldEm” tables; completely gone & was what I mostly played, they can kiss this player goodbye!!! I played this game on occasion and climbed fairly well on my own and they have removed HoldEm completely. WTH?!!??!?!? Well, I hate that I have to, because their HoldEm rooms were pretty well laid out; insta-chat, player info, advance opportunities & so-forth. Even their customer service was decent; messaging was easy enough & quick to respond. So, I hope they listen to their customers & read my and other’s reviews, (I will check back in a week, or so to see if they have) I can honestly say, that if HoldEm doesn’t return in what I enjoyed most about the game, I will dump this game & they will have lost a customer!!! And I imagine many, many others will, if not have already followed suit!
Garbage. Stay away.
by Babaju2 on 2019/06/03 06:50
This isn’t real Poker. It’s completely rigged. I had a 40% tournament win rate when I was beginner/novice rank. But now that I’m in ‘skilled,’ I’ve lost about 20 tournaments in a row with maybe ONE win in between for only a 1.5x gain and my win rate has dropped to 37%. I am not exaggerating. Ever since my rank has been in ‘skilled’ tier, almost every single hand that I raise, the other two players call me with absolutely nothing and then one of them hits the nuts on the river. I have lost with pocket aces to quad 2’s TWICE this week. After you begin requiring a large amount of winnings to advance to the next tier, the game tries very VERY hard to clean you because it knows you’re likely to spend. It’s merely a cash grab, nothing more. It’s also full of glitches such as having your cards dealt to your face down, or being unable to raise. Big waste of time.
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
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 :/

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Its fun
by ace14451 on 2018/11/23 18:37
Easy to use I’ve played real money when I was able too. What I like about this is there’s good players on here. There ties to Facebook I’m not thrilled about but at least they can’t multi play like on the other sites I play on three and IMO multiple tables is not real poker. You can’t do that in a casino. Very fun and interactive if you know how to play on a free site you do good. If you think you’re all that maybe not your thing
Server connection closed down & had to reset my phone due to it freezing up
by Stairway2Se7en on 2020/09/05 19:03
I’ve tried signing and it states “Connection closed by server” I reset my phone, tried it again and began loading up and the same thing happened. My app is up to date. My WiFi is up and working because I checked that first. Very disappointed because now my husband and I cannot play against one another on our downtime at the tables. What’s going on ? And since the software upgrade on your website AND apples update, the last 4x I’ve tried spinning for extra play money, I’ve had to reset my phone every single time !! It freezes up.
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.
Poker stars.
by RandyCJason on 2019/05/19 11:04
So I played this now for about eight months and I like it quite a bit as a lot of variety of the games as well as people who actually want to play the game correctly although when I’ve made purchases I am curious to know what the gold collecting really Benifits.. Otherwise compared to other Casino apps this is the most interactive and life like baths occur and war of bets is fun too!!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
Had to take off 2 stars
by Ron Don Volante on 2019/01/20 21:59
The regular Hold em is fine. The amount of straights and flushes in the 3 player tournaments is a little fishy though. As long as I have more chips than the other player and go all in I can expect to hit a straight on the river. The app will do whatever it can to end the tournament as quick as possible... when people aren’t losing, developers aren’t making money. Still not as greedy as the other app tournaments.
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.
Nothing legitimate about this game.
by Puckster9999 on 2019/02/19 04:10
There is absolutely nothing legitimate about the poker in this game. Hands are set up and outcomes are predetermined. I have played games where the same player has gotten four of a kind 2 X, 2 flushes and a straight in successive hands. Either this game allows players to cheat and does nothing about it or the hands are set up. I would highly recommend not downloading or playing this game unless you’re ready to throw your money away or get a full house but lose to a player with 4 of a kind. Statistically none of the hands that occur in this game are possible.
Thieves and liars
by N8isgr8! on 2020/07/26 07:37
Avoid this at all cost. I downloaded the app and purchased $1000 USD for play chips in a six week period. The last two purchases were not credited to my bankroll and the developers refuse to acknowledge the flaw or credit the chips. Additionally, when joining a tournament, I waited for a while for someone to show up but there were no opponents, so I left, clicked refund my entry fee and lost another 250 million chips. Total scam. I don’t know how these guys sleep at night. I’ll never make another purchase with them and would advise anyone to play better apps. Lesson learned.
This app will not help you learn the game of poker
by dmbatt on 2019/04/06 15:09
As fate as ease of use and speed of game play, I have no complaints. The issue I have is that all tables are 3 handed & play chips encourage players to bet with absolutely no concept of range. I broke out of a tournament when a player went all in first hand with jack/2 off suit while I was holding AQ suited. When would this ever happen at a real poker table? This sort of thing makes this app unhelpful at best. If you want to practice your poker skills, don’t play here. Sorry to the developers.
Another “buy more coin app”
by Dogg2013 on 2018/03/25 00:48
Graphics are great, but it’s just another buy more coins app. You couldn’t buy a winning hand here. Deals are unrealistic. I have never been dealt so many lousy cards so consistently, and when you finally get a decent hand someone always has a better one. When you exit the game to the lobby the first thing that pops up is to buy more coin. Maybe someday there will be an app where we can just have fun playing!!!
Not so sure...
by Oldwormwood on 2019/10/10 23:32
The interface is well designed, and it is great to play against players from around the world. But in the Texas Hold Em game, the starting hands, flops, turns, and rivers seem to be predetermined. I have not way to prove it, but it is my impression. Compared to live in-person gameplay, there seem to be many more flushes and straights than you would otherwise see. It is fun app, but I’d like to learn a bit more about the real “randomness” of the deals.
A joke
by Nuttles21 on 2018/10/08 17:04
It’s going to cost you to keep chips in the bank and then some. Don’t plan on just wanting to play a little everyday without buying the chip packages that are $100 plus. And the sit and go’s never EVER spin to play for very much. Most the time it’s just barely double what the buy in is. There’s always someone that literally hits anything and everything but when your on the streak is few and once in a lifetime. I love playing poker but not for $25 a day, and I’m a percentage numbers player.
Not Sure What’s Going on Here.
by Yo nothing on 2020/04/27 02:52
I joined Poker Star Play a few days ago to play Hold’em. I was really liking it. Graphics are good games are solid. Then a couple days ago Texas Hold’em was no longer a choice on the app. All the other games are there, but I’m not interested in those. There is no help tab or support available from the app. When I googled, to look for answers, nothing comes up. Googled PokerStars FAQ, click the link and get missing page try again. Just aggravating. I know it’s just play money. Trying to survive stay at home order.
