Often the hole cars aren’t revealed when cards are dealt or you can’t fold your hand, you have to let the hand timeout runout.
Stopped working
by KayKB42 on 2022/05/18 13:34
Ever since I downloaded the new iOS update 15.5 the app stopped working. I really enjoyed this game and played it everyday. Please fix your app to work with the new update, please! I miss my game
Game down
by kmort1130 on 2022/05/18 12:51
It has been down for over a day now saying it’s updating on top of that when I play in tournaments the prizes I play for are never big ones
Caution !
by Harry203 on 2022/05/18 09:32
Stick in maintenance mode for more than a day and still going. Be very leery of how you spend your money for chips. This happens too often.
Still glitches
by 64trying to be fit on 2022/05/17 23:23
Love playing this game and noticed from time to time it won’t open. Can’t sign in also. Restarted phone and deleted the App Started app again and it won’t let in. Support is minimal. They say they are escalating the issue and never hear back. Need to work on responses and glitches. At this time it flashes maintenance mode for 12+ hours. Deleted app, reinstalled app, shut down two devices and still getting errors. The app does not automatically save user name and password to your device. I just wish they would improve the games glitches and have better ways of reporting errors.
Best potential PlayMoney game but needs some improvements
by Frappstet(^_^) on 2022/05/17 23:07
I love it. The UI is clean and not too flashy (in a good way) compared to competitors. It’s easy to accumulate chips without paying. Leaderboards are just a grind and doesn’t factor losses into your ranking, fine. You can bet by sliding your finger over chips but it scales up too quickly. It’s really unintuitive. After 1400 hands I still “misclick” and raise all-in too often or bet too little for me to justify using the slider… I stick to tapping the buttons even if it takes me longer. I also raise accidentally when trying to call sometimes. WSOP has a better betting system using buttons, presets and a visual slider but that’s about all it does better. I wish I had more control over settings. I have vibration enabled but it only notifies me after the clock has 50% time left. It should notify as soon as action is on the user. This slows down play a lot. Overall I like the app but it could use some improvements. Edit: I forgot to mention… if you sign up with an AppleID you can’t sign in anywhere else but on Apple devices. There’s no option to link your account to a PokerStars account. I’m stuck to playing mobile.

Fun for play, not for real poker
by farfrompro on 2022/05/04 02:32
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.

I have a lot of fun playing a game overall very good game but sometimes it freezes up and takes all my money and that hurts when you’re playing a large entry fee

Finally! No monotonous music at the table! Among the poker apps this has become my go to. WSOP has a shot clock that’s way too short. I like the pace here at PokerStars.
Lies for you to feast on
by stopasking120 on 2022/04/24 06:31
The so called “tournaments” where you can win “millions” of chips never exceed $50,000-100,000 on the “random spinner.”

Nothing like poker
by GJ3297 on 2022/04/11 23:30
Most players are bots and the bots hit every draw. The worst hand wins about 80% of the time. This app is an absolute joke that rewards poor play. I you have an hour to kill this isn’t a bad way, but I would flush money down the toilet before I actually purchased chips in this app.
A lot of fun
by [Data Redacted] on 2022/04/09 19:45
It’s nice to just play a casual game whenever you’re bored or just simply have nothing to do. I play PokerStars VR a lot but when I don’t ha e access to a VR headset, this is my go-to.

Unplayably rigged

Good review
by devonclamp on 2022/04/04 20:26
Great game to spend spare time on.
Apple please investigate
by rmac84 on 2022/04/03 21:19
Apple please investigate this app. People are paying real money for chips only to have them stolen by obvious bots. There’s no way this is a random algorithm as claimed. 90% winning hands on the flop will lose 90% of the time if you go all in. IMO this is theft.
Freezes you out of High dollar Tournaments
by Sparkfire7 on 2022/03/24 04:04
If it didn’t constantly freeze you out of high dollar tournaments I would put real money in but, I lost 3 million chips because it freezes constantly and kicks you out of the tournament.
iPad GUI version
by TxDrummer89 on 2022/03/14 23:23
Need to find a way to allow this GUI version to be more like the Desktop version. Where you can choose which table and tournament options. I prefer the desktop, version but spend more time on here with my iPad

by TheWTCBrand on 2022/03/08 15:18
Great game but the so called algorithm used for tournaments and spin wheel is bogus for the simple reason of the same prizes are given out majority of the time. As well recycled cards seem to be common from hand to hand during tournaments….. If you’ve played poker at a casino it’s a lil different here and not the same environment with players

The worst
by Ocar Records on 2022/02/06 03:55
For two weeks I lost more than 70% of hands with 90% being on the river. The odds have to be astronomical. I lost multiple times to hands below 5's when I either had KA or higher pairs. Also losing multiple times to quads or even straight flushese. This game had to be rigged in some way. No possiblity I would lose the majority of these hands. I would never play this game again. Do not download!
Money, money, money
by This Ap is Trash. on 2022/02/04 04:40
The more money you pay into the game, the better hands you get. If you stop buying you’ll pretty much lose always. Have fun playing, but after a certain level you’ll have to start paying to keep playing. Edit: Still 100% true. Don’t waste money on this app. Edit: Still 100% true. There is no random fair dealing. As soon as you build up chips through the free spins/scratch offs and skill at poker... they won’t let you go forward without buying chips. You’ll never win another tournament.
100% Rigged- deleted
by Cheating-App on 2022/02/02 15:33
This app loves to profit from the ignorant. The cards are dealt in algorithms, basically meaning they’re not random and they never will be random. You have 13 individual cards, each individual card has 4 suits. If you were to play real poker with real cards, it would take a very long time before you noticed any type of pattern, if there is a pattern at all. Why? Because real poker is 100% random, It’s impossible for patterns to form with this type of odds. PokerStars poker is 100% predetermined, that’s why you see a pattern after pattern repeat over and over again. Totally rigged. Buying chips allows a player who loves poker but who might not have the kind of free time that is required to amass the necessary chips for the high roller tables to enjoy the game on their own level. PokerStars Poker is using rigged deals to make people buy more coins. The game determines a winner before the cards are even dealt. Then the game set’s up multiple ‘possibilities’ based on the player's perception, in fact, there is only one possibility and that is the winning one.
Big Scam
by hvxrhjiitrwsvbjjg on 2022/01/29 21:10
If you count the number of times you win/lose hands with over 95% chance to win/lose the odds of how you win/lose are far from realistic. I guess they like to keep it interesting. That’s why one should never play on line for cash

Hard to Read Showdown
by bdhsjiwjwnjw on 2022/01/27 07:52
Hi, I gave 3 star only because I want to let the developer know certain aspects it needs to be improved. The showdown time is way too short for me and it's not even 1 second, lots of time I don't even have the time to read the hands of myself and my opponents and I don't even know how I won and how I lost. Besides, the pop out window after showdown is even more annoying, sometimes it just block the showdown hands and I couldn't read it at all. Could you make it at least last several seconds? Or at least let user to choose the showdown time?
Really Questionable hands
by ty.bbq on 2022/01/24 09:07
I’ve played in a couple tournaments recently and have noticed some ridiculous hands play out for high stakes. I don’t trust the randomness of the shuffles
Charged me twice
by ilovetisssgamee on 2022/01/23 13:43
On December 31st, I bought $100 in poker chips, but the first time it said it didn’t go through, so I tried it again and it worked but it charged me twice, it charged me for the time it didn’t go through and the time it did go through. I messaged support on Facebook and they said they are looking into it and would get back to me. It’s been three weeks since and I haven’t heard back from them. I either want the other $100 in poker chips that they charged me that said didn’t go through or I want that $100 back. It’s been three weeks and this is getting ridiculous. Is there management or anyone relevant that I can talk to? This is crazy and I will not ever buy poker chips again.
2 words “bad beat”
by jbhodj on 2022/01/20 18:57
Suc out bad beats on this platform are frequent and prevalent. Audited for fair play is canned response from dev. Don’t believe it. It is fun to play just be aware it is rigged
Good platform same bad river beats as other
by tsgsbwt on 2022/01/12 21:51
This is the best platform out there, but the software is setup for bad players to win on the river just like the rest of them. Update: I’ve lost 13 straight tournaments on the river with the best hand after the turn. Explain that one, lol.

by Killerman88 on 2022/01/03 03:00
If the system doesn't want you to win then you’re not going to win. Doesn’t matter what you have. Ive lost about 40 to 50 hands in a row going in with the better hand. Ive lost on the river 15 to 20 hands in a row. Too rigged
Rigged
by FuzzyShadows on 2022/01/01 02:04
No doubt in my mind that this game is rigged. If you win a decent amount, the game will set you up for failure. So obvious it’s ridiculous. Just a con job.
Nope
by Serv2319 on 2021/12/28 16:20
Weak payouts,bad beats check button often disappears and causes you to just sit there. They say you can win a bunch of chips yet a 100 K tournaments only get you 200 K not worth it at all. Going elsewhere wouldn’t play the site

by Buschgrp on 2021/12/05 03:28
This is a fun game but the card generator program does not approximate real card play. The outlier hands are just too frequent. This said this is not a cash game, so I enjoy the app and recommend it to friends.
Actually stop being rigged
by Edro Navissi on 2021/12/04 14:49
I keep winning because I’m good at poker but they always give the prize to the loser. I have played the game for 3 years and it was great and fair until this last month. Stop this right now and people might actually be interested in this game. It’s also putting these terrible streaks onto my account and others that spend so much money on this. The game used to be good and it’s wasting all my time on unfair matches against either hack clients or the game is just managed poorly by the creators. I demand a refund of the 50,000,000 chips sent off of my account to other people and the other chips I actually paid for and got glitched out during cash games. Please get a creator to hear about this.

App glitches
by jkruskie on 2021/11/24 05:29
App consistently has major glitches. I have frequently experienced cards that never turn face up and impossible to fold, no check button so I am forced to bet or fold and app frequently crashes as soon as I buy into a tourney. *update deleted app after winning two tourneys and didn't get paid.
Looses connection on reg
by mwagner1980 on 2021/11/21 23:46
I have lost $30 so far. Will be in middle of game and it will lose connection to verify location. This happened a on different devices not just one.
Just like all the other games
by Driverdad1 on 2021/11/20 18:28
Thought this app would be different than the other poker apps. My mistake. Amazing how many times you can get beat by someone else catching a one or two outer on the river. Also entered a Sit n Go with a 500k buyin. Waited a few minutes for other players. None showed so I left the table. Got a message saying the buyin would be refunded to me but nothing yet. How about fixing this? Get to a certain level and you will never see anything to even play. Will be deleting as soon as I run out of chips
Fun

Bad calls
by anthonymitchel on 2021/11/17 20:53
I have lost several hands even though I had the winning hand. This has happened at least 13 times that I can remember. It makes it hard to keep playing if you don’t know if you will win!
Constant glitches
by tonybass5555 on 2021/11/10 15:21
Constant glitches and issues every time there os an update.I am referring to the home games. Every time there was an update, something that worked just fine before, stops working. And when you write to customer service, They generally answer with some generic response that doesn’t help at all. As an example, the option to show cards or not recently disappeared. They seem to be more concerned with bells and whistle‘s, like stupid graphics, then they are with real issues. It’s still one of the only options, I guess best of the worst, but they need to get there programming house in order and stop messing with things that work perfectly fine.
Algorithm is the worst
by guest830 on 2021/11/10 12:37
This app is the worst. The algorithm will determine the winner of each hand based on bet size. Of you like giving money away they be all means go buy chips. These guys wrote a lazy app.
Good platform

So many bugs and glitches
by redcowboyg62 on 2021/10/17 16:29
Game has so many bugs. Locked out of tourneys, game freezing, not refunding buy ins. I have sent in numerous screenshots and descriptions of the issues but as long as they are making money they see no reason to fix anything. Stay away.
Writing bad reviews has a price
by EyeGer on 2021/10/08 18:12
I have used this app for several years, on and off on the account that it’s totally rigged. As soon as I win big, there are no more winning hands. All of the sudden it is completely dry season until I’m down to zero. I saw this happen several times and would get fed up and delete the app. Did this several times the last several years until the last time, I decided to finally write a review sharing my annoyance with pretty much all of the poker apps in the App Store including this one. At least this one was not as bad and I could tolerate it enough for longer periods of time than the others. It is when it seems so obvious, and I find myself having to sit out or fold pretty much every hand that I get totally annoyed. After how many years and times of deleting and reinstalling the app, it is only after my bad review that now I started having problems with it. Writing to the support team does not help whatsoever. I went back and forth a few times and finally gave up on trying to fix the problem. Now anytime I want to play although I have ample amount of funds, all of the sudden I have a problem with reloading the amount back on after each round. So every time I play a hand I’m sitting there with less and less money unless I manually refill it and that’s if it’s not giving me error messages. To make matters worse, once I use all the amount I’m sitting with, I just get kicked out of the next round automatically. This happens at every play. Somehow this has been my experience only after I wrote a bad review, which happened to be deleted a couple of times too. So here is another one. Congrats on the level of maturity you handled this.

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

Great poker platform
by BigWaveDave49 on 2021/09/18 22:52
This Is the most intuitive poker platform I’ve seen. I play GG Poker real money, but this is good practice. There are donkeys on every site but maintain a good TAG strategy and you can win and become a PokerStar. Good fun.
Cheated
by scorpdan on 2021/09/15 21:56
I had three 4’s in my hand and a four on the flop. I lost to a straight. It’s not the first time I’ve been cheated here. When a poker app can’t be trusted to get it right like that, it isn’t worth it. It’s a real shame.
Worse app and site!
by CKkkkk7878 on 2021/09/14 06:23
Most rigged app I’ve ever played!!
Bad
by DarrellT007 on 2021/09/10 05:37
Don’t waste your time buying chips. The game seems rigged to give you bad beats, and take all your chips so you have to buy more. Never seen so many quads,royal flushes and bad beats on the river. On to the next one.
Rigged!!
by Jamerssssssss on 2021/09/02 03:45
The game is rigged, plain and simple. It wants you to spend money on chips. You flop three of a kind, someone else rivers a straight. You get a flush, someone boats up. The statistical odds of some of some of these hands are outlandish - and they happen way to frequently to be a coincidence. The poker is fun but don’t expect a fair game.

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

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

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

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

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

When you have pocket aces and some other person who doesn’t have a level gets four of kind consistently then you know there’s something other than luck at work.
Super Spin Joke
by Feline_Nine on 2020/11/12 19:36
Wanted to get some free coins today and there was an option to rate Poker Stars to get a free ‘Super Spin, wish I didn’t spend my time giving this app a good review as the did not give me my free spin. Also, there default in-game responses are pretty cheesy like “I’m so tight now” or “Can’t call that much” when you fold etc., but not to big of an annoying deal. When you do their daily spin on the wheel I get $5,000 to $7,000 chips, and will get something more like $25,000 out of a million maybe a couple times a year.
Needs a fix
by Guest Pokerstar on 2018/08/19 14:40
The game is fun and it’s easy to use. The only reason I gave this a 3 star review is the profile system. It asked for my Facebook log in info or to create a guest account. I don’t like linking everything to my Facebook so I created the guest account. Played the game for a few weeks and then they closed the account. So I went into the settings and attempted to log in with Facebook. It didn’t work. Contacted customer support and they said I have to create another account. Why allow someone to create the guest account if you can’t use it long term/log in to facebook later? Not the worst thing in the world but it is annoying when you had 2 million chips saved up. I won’t be creating another account or playing this anymore. If you want to play this game, immediately create a profile using your Facebook info. Update: Changed to 4 stars since the developer reached out to correct the mistake. To the developer: My guest account was Goodflush570. I wasn’t able to link this to my Facebook after it got closed so I never made an actual account. Since I’ve removed the app I imagine the account is no longer active. Hopefully you’re able to see what happen. I appreciate the reimbursement but I don’t think I’ll be getting the app again.
Best potential PlayMoney game but needs some improvements
by Frappstet(^_^) on 2022/05/17 23:07
I love it. The UI is clean and not too flashy (in a good way) compared to competitors. It’s easy to accumulate chips without paying. Leaderboards are just a grind and doesn’t factor losses into your ranking, fine. You can bet by sliding your finger over chips but it scales up too quickly. It’s really unintuitive. After 1400 hands I still “misclick” and raise all-in too often or bet too little for me to justify using the slider… I stick to tapping the buttons even if it takes me longer. I also raise accidentally when trying to call sometimes. WSOP has a better betting system using buttons, presets and a visual slider but that’s about all it does better. I wish I had more control over settings. I have vibration enabled but it only notifies me after the clock has 50% time left. It should notify as soon as action is on the user. This slows down play a lot. Overall I like the app but it could use some improvements. Edit: I forgot to mention… if you sign up with an AppleID you can’t sign in anywhere else but on Apple devices. There’s no option to link your account to a PokerStars account. I’m stuck to playing mobile.
Do not buy chips
by merzap on 2021/03/23 01:38
I bought chips and they didn’t even give me the right amount of what I bought, after contacting the developer they gave me the difference (that was only after some back and forth emails). It was frustrating to say the least, due to the fact that if your the developer and you have my player ID you should know what was deposited in my account and what deal I bought. Not with poker stars play, they were questioning me as if I had not bought the chips with the deal I had stated. The good thing is I had taken screen shots of the play chips and the deal f not I feel they would had brushed me off. Another thing I noticed and this what has me displeased, It will play the hand and at the end you lost when you have the winning hand. The system did it on several occassions, I thought that I was wrong but on my last hand tonight I had triple 9 before river at the end of the hand it said the other player one with two pairs 10 2. How is that possible? do not waste your money. It would be nice if they had like poker stars lite or poker starswhere if you tap at the chat you can see what other players had in that hand and the id for that hand that way we could contact the developers.
Rigged
by kstoked on 2021/06/01 17:22
I been playing this game for years, I’m talking 5 -6 years. And I always buy the 30,000,000 chip package. I’m really good at poker and played almost 2 times a week for over 10 years. On this game Youll have a hot streak then, BOOM you lose back to back to back. I’ve lost 15,000,000 in a day and I played for hours and all I usually play is AA,KK,JJ,QQ and sometimes 89 or J, 10 ya know especially if up in chips. Well here lately after I bought 39,000,000 chips I have lost hand after hand after hand. And I’m talking all I’m playing is face cards. And it’ll never hit. I see a pattern too. 1 day I’ll hit hit hit, then the next I’ll lose lose lose. But you lose more than you can Gain. Any poker player can tell you that. . I just feel like they’ll give you a hot streak. Then take everything away from you so you have to buy more. And I’m upset about this cause I’ve spent Hundreds of dollars on this game. And the pattern never fails. I won’t spend another dime on this till the manager/ Developer of this game makes it right!! They didn’t respond to me last time. So I hope this gets there attention if they actually care
Proof that this is a sketchy app.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/07/16 22:22
Second review since my first one was replied saying they are fair play certified by gaming labs, and their shuffle and distribution are random. While this may or may not be true, I think they need to be tested again. I’ve ran simulations with my own cards in person and the results don’t match up. With a sample of 100 hands in the app, 76 hands were won on the river. (I only used hands where two or more players went to the river and showed) For example, two pair is leading up to the river, river comes and someone without a pair hits a gut shot straight. 57 of those were runner runner where they had for example 6 8 10 on the flop, and then comes 7 and 9 on the turn and river. After doing 100 hands in real life, 12 hands were won by the river card, 6 of those hitting two pair or making a boat. Two gut shot straights, and two flushes. Not a single runner runner. Obviously these results will vary, but Kind of off putting that when done in person with truly random cards, there were 64 more hands won on the river in the app. If you still want to use the app, just call everything, especially when you have no business doing so.
Garbage
by Cainsofoxford on 2019/03/31 23:46
It’s hard enough to sharpen your game playing with play chips because people will call you down with nothing. It’s COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE to sharpen your game with this rigged app. First off, their claim that the card generator is definitionally incorrect. There is absolutely nothing random about computers. Computers only do what they are told to do or programmed to do. And with this app, it’s completely ridiculous. I’m assuming that they program it to create “exciting” hands. About 75 percent of hands are decided on the river. There are an insanely disproportionate number of hands that contain flush over flush, set over set, etc. if you flop top pair, you can bet your life that the other two cards match someone’s hole cards. It seems that I am on the losing end of these rigged hands most of the time but I also have won several hands in the same ridiculous fashion. There’s just no possible way that all of these crazy wild hands that are decided on the river are random. Also DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY BONUS CHIPS FROM THIS APP. I did this on three occasions and after each time, I lost EVERY SINGLE TOURNANENT I entered until the chips were gone (lost 17 straight tournaments one time). Do not waste your time!
Finally had to delete
by Tape Doctor on 2019/05/11 14:08
Played for a year. I have noticed what must be random patterns according to all these poker apps including yep this one and read reviews of others that say same thing. Get a lot of beginners luck. See a lot of miracles on the river. See a lot of spin & go where you check all the way through with 6,7 unsuited and the winner has 7,8. Seen a lot of trips on the flop, get a full house and someone always has four of a kind. See a lot of bad luck after you buy chips. Seen a lot of bad beats including losing to three full houses in one session. Seen a lot of top pair hole cards where everyone folds before you can make a bet. Have been on both sides of all these but mostly the wrong side. Rigged or not and I notice that the developer does not say they have been certified by some independent fair play organization - which WSOP say they have and post every time someone writes a review like this one. In the end, if you want to spend money being entertained, then go for it. I went on a bad losing streak and deleted the app after I lost on a straight to a flush on the river. I am going to go back to playing with real cards shuffled by real people.
Glitches and patterns
by Geezuskereist on 2018/02/11 23:03
Was skeptical of new software (old PokerStars player) but gave it a shot. Not bad for a play money app. I have come across a couple of glitches that aren’t frequent but aren’t rare either where the check button doesn’t come up forcing you to bet or neither the check nor the bet button comes up - annoying but not often enough to hate playing. What I got into though was the leagues portion of the game. Unfortunately, I’m noticing that it doesn’t log all my tournament wins. I won several the night before and I come back today to a 0 balance (and yes, this was after the old league stats ended and should have been counted on new league) very disappointing. Also, they really should eliminate the 1.5x tourney prize on these games - but that’s just my opinion. Also starting to notice patterns of repeated odds beating by certain players meaning time after time in the same tournaments they defy odds to win. Not just the occasional bad beat but runner runner over and over again (and runner runner runner runner too). I understand the “Unbelievable” as one of your three default options for chat.
Not Random
by Chirnobyl on 2021/03/22 13:57
Of course the game will say the cards are random but their algorithm is off. When you hit a 3 outer at a 7% chance, it’s obvious that something doesn’t make sense. Their algorithm offers a 33% chance of winning a hand on a tournament rather than proper randomization on cards being dealt. It’s a fun game to play if you want to burn some time and money but it’s definitely not like real poker. Too many times have I seen AK lose to A8 because of a 4 card straight in the board or a 4 card flush. Not random, not realistic. Also, they base your rank and mastery level on how many chips you earn in a week. Not based on percentage of wins. So a Pay to Play player can buy millions of chips, play 1 big tournament for 50mil, lose all their money afterwards never winning another tournament, and still upgrade to next level of mastery, whereas a player with a 100% win percentage at 100k chip tournaments will never exceed past a certain level. This is a pay to play game with an altering algorithm designed to incentivize the purchase of fake money for their own profit. A big waste.
100% Rigged- deleted
by Cheating-App on 2022/02/02 15:33
This app loves to profit from the ignorant. The cards are dealt in algorithms, basically meaning they’re not random and they never will be random. You have 13 individual cards, each individual card has 4 suits. If you were to play real poker with real cards, it would take a very long time before you noticed any type of pattern, if there is a pattern at all. Why? Because real poker is 100% random, It’s impossible for patterns to form with this type of odds. PokerStars poker is 100% predetermined, that’s why you see a pattern after pattern repeat over and over again. Totally rigged. Buying chips allows a player who loves poker but who might not have the kind of free time that is required to amass the necessary chips for the high roller tables to enjoy the game on their own level. PokerStars Poker is using rigged deals to make people buy more coins. The game determines a winner before the cards are even dealt. Then the game set’s up multiple ‘possibilities’ based on the player's perception, in fact, there is only one possibility and that is the winning one.
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.
Rigged and full of bots
by smellyfartbox on 2021/09/20 10:32
I thought zynga poker was bad, but this game is way worse. Its full of fake players because they dont have enough real players to fill the tables. You get a bot in almost every game. TONS of glitches as well. Multiple times i waited in a spin and go lobby and no one joined so i went to find a new lobby and it tells you that your chips will be refunded if you leave but they never refund you. Multiple times i have had the winning hand and it gives the win to someone who doesn't even have a hand at all. The check button and bet buttons have also disappeared in game and made it to where i could only fold or run out of time and it would stand me up from the table in a tournament. You will also see a lot of things happen repeatedly that have astronomical odds of happening in real life. This game is horribly rigged and horribly run by bots. Save your time and money and look for a different game to play
Fun, 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.
Seems rigged.
by Mr. Jeff33 on 2021/02/12 18:16
I have been playing this app for awhile. I have even spent some money buying chips. I have noticed as you get higher in the tiers the amount of games won decreases significantly. I have specifically noticed when playing against unranked players the chance of getting beat on what would be considered unbeatable hands goes up. For instance I go all in on ace, king with an ace on the board. The other player shows 6, 3 unsuited. First of all who goes all in on this hand but then to hit 6, 6 runner, runner. And it has happened continuously, once I made it to the top tiers. Also the app has frozen on several big hands and caused me to lose tournaments as I have to leave and come back and by then most of my chip stack has been reduced. I would suggest spending your time and money elsewhere.
Can you give a negative star review? -⭐️
by SkisaWinner on 2020/04/26 20:11
Now that PokerStars has removed the 6 player “HoldEm” tables; completely gone & was what I mostly played, they can kiss this player goodbye!!! I played this game on occasion and climbed fairly well on my own and they have removed HoldEm completely. WTH?!!??!?!? Well, I hate that I have to, because their HoldEm rooms were pretty well laid out; insta-chat, player info, advance opportunities & so-forth. Even their customer service was decent; messaging was easy enough & quick to respond. So, I hope they listen to their customers & read my and other’s reviews, (I will check back in a week, or so to see if they have) I can honestly say, that if HoldEm doesn’t return in what I enjoyed most about the game, I will dump this game & they will have lost a customer!!! And I imagine many, many others will, if not have already followed suit!
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.
All poker apps are rigged
by card player1524 on 2020/12/12 19:22
Just when you think you found a poker app with real odds you didn’t.... the same as all the other so called certified odds.... so obviously not.... twice in one game I was one upped a card in a flush... he was dealt A10 spade and I was dealt K 9 spade but didn’t hit.... couple hands later I was dealt J 9 diamonds and he was dealtA Q diamonds and it hit and I lost.... in heads up poker that’s just about impossible to happen twice in one 10 minute game... it’s fun but not real at all... definitely just a time waster ... don’t play poker apps if you want to play real live poker the odds are nothing near the real thing.... the better you are the more they just counter that when they’ve learned you... they want people to run out of chips so you will buy more or watch an ad... so close... almost a good app... I have given up on these stupid apps
Omaha Issue
by Good🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 on 2021/08/29 20:23
Before I start off, other than the issue I’m about to bring up, I do think that this is one of the best fake money poker games that is on the App Store. I myself most commonly play Omaha poker, as I find it fun. However, recently I have noticed that the game is not registering all of the hands on the table correctly. Multiple times I have had full house, a straight, or 2 pair and it has not counted as what it should have. This results in me losing 350k+ pots where I should win but the game is incorrect, or when there’s a tie, it doesn’t count high cards correctly. I would greatly appreciate if they would fix this issue as I do really like this game. TLDR: Omaha hands not counted correctly Plz fix
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 :/
Actually stop being rigged
by Edro Navissi on 2021/12/04 14:49
I keep winning because I’m good at poker but they always give the prize to the loser. I have played the game for 3 years and it was great and fair until this last month. Stop this right now and people might actually be interested in this game. It’s also putting these terrible streaks onto my account and others that spend so much money on this. The game used to be good and it’s wasting all my time on unfair matches against either hack clients or the game is just managed poorly by the creators. I demand a refund of the 50,000,000 chips sent off of my account to other people and the other chips I actually paid for and got glitched out during cash games. Please get a creator to hear about this.
Impossible support
by Karatejoe13 on 2021/01/01 20:58
Have had to remove and reload over 7 times , bought 4.99 worth of chips an less than 24 hours can’t get it to open or load . It gave me a message asking me to take a screen shot to report to tech support. Trying to do that was a complete waste of time w a automatic pick your problem list that asked me to rephrase my question , Saying it did not understand?! SMH Click the green to contact a person?! Clicked it and started all over. I only invest 7 bucks but can tell you I would never gamble w any amount of real money because if anything goes wrong they make it impossible to reach them . Will definitely let my family and friends who do invest to beware. Sad . The only reason I gave 1 star is the little I played I liked.
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

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
Constant glitches
by tonybass5555 on 2021/11/10 15:21
Constant glitches and issues every time there os an update.I am referring to the home games. Every time there was an update, something that worked just fine before, stops working. And when you write to customer service, They generally answer with some generic response that doesn’t help at all. As an example, the option to show cards or not recently disappeared. They seem to be more concerned with bells and whistle‘s, like stupid graphics, then they are with real issues. It’s still one of the only options, I guess best of the worst, but they need to get there programming house in order and stop messing with things that work perfectly fine.
One of the best poker apps.
by gm105 on 2021/08/10 17:21
I’ve been playing for many years. This is one of the fairest sites I’ve played on, with quite a few skilled players. You get daily bonuses that help sustain you through unlucky streaks. Safe way to learn the game while playing against experienced players and acquiring an instinct for the odds. The site has open tables for both Holdem & Omaha and three person Holdem tournaments. Remember- poker is a dance hall girl who loves you and leaves you as your luck changes. She follows the money. Don’t bet your house.
Entertaining but too fast
by Якков on 2019/01/02 19:24
Fun and easy and visual. It’s free but not exactly free since you need more chips to play with better players. So chips cost something. It makes the game more interesting as players become more responsible. I put 4 stars and not 5 because it’s too hard to play for inexperienced players. Time for your turn goes by so quickly you barely can weigh your hand. And when the game is done and all the cards are on the table it’s only a second to see other players’ hands (to understand their ways of thinking) Overall it’s a very decent game especially for the regions where money poker is unlawful.
No poker
by Potatoess on 2020/04/05 00:26
This sounds ridiculous, but I opened the app today and there’s no option to play poker any more. Under the featured section, they are promoting their slot games and a chip buying event. There’s another tab for live games, but I can’t find the option to just get into a poker table anymore. I opened the app and checked it out a few times throughout the day, went through ALL the menus and I can’t figure it out. I’ve used the app a hundred times. I can’t find any resources or a way to contact them online so I figured I’d post a review here. Can anybody point me in the right direction? I am really confused why they would just remove the option to quick play from the front page and then make it this hard to find.
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
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.
Charged me twice
by ilovetisssgamee on 2022/01/23 13:43
On December 31st, I bought $100 in poker chips, but the first time it said it didn’t go through, so I tried it again and it worked but it charged me twice, it charged me for the time it didn’t go through and the time it did go through. I messaged support on Facebook and they said they are looking into it and would get back to me. It’s been three weeks since and I haven’t heard back from them. I either want the other $100 in poker chips that they charged me that said didn’t go through or I want that $100 back. It’s been three weeks and this is getting ridiculous. Is there management or anyone relevant that I can talk to? This is crazy and I will not ever buy poker chips again.
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
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.
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.
Hard to Read Showdown
by bdhsjiwjwnjw on 2022/01/27 07:52
Hi, I gave 3 star only because I want to let the developer know certain aspects it needs to be improved. The showdown time is way too short for me and it's not even 1 second, lots of time I don't even have the time to read the hands of myself and my opponents and I don't even know how I won and how I lost. Besides, the pop out window after showdown is even more annoying, sometimes it just block the showdown hands and I couldn't read it at all. Could you make it at least last several seconds? Or at least let user to choose the showdown time?
The cheaters seem to be more and more
by Limodriverjeff on 2019/02/28 06:48
I have found cheaters of a couple different kinds Programs are out primarily in USSR players that allow the user to see all cards and cards due to come off the deck They never loose a hand they are in and outrageously bet over the top on hands they are in. The next type are players from the same country. They never compete against each other and come in to the table at close to the same time and are on the phone to each other or on the phone to a few players at the table, again all from the same court try and never bet against each other and are usually out of hands by the turn card. It’s a problem that they know about at PS and have taken some steps to return integrity to the site. I have notice some obnoxious players loosing the chat side. Some are suspended for a period of time and can not sign in and play....then are Chat-less for awhile if I see them again. I enjoy the game and can usually spot consistent cheaters
Still glitches
by 64trying to be fit on 2022/05/17 23:23
Love playing this game and noticed from time to time it won’t open. Can’t sign in also. Restarted phone and deleted the App Started app again and it won’t let in. Support is minimal. They say they are escalating the issue and never hear back. Need to work on responses and glitches. At this time it flashes maintenance mode for 12+ hours. Deleted app, reinstalled app, shut down two devices and still getting errors. The app does not automatically save user name and password to your device. I just wish they would improve the games glitches and have better ways of reporting errors.
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.
Love the app but can’t report bugs
by jacoblee00000 on 2021/08/03 00:30
Why can’t I report bugs? The “help” button shows me the hands in poker. The “feedback” button asks me to rate it from frown to smiley face emoji. The “contact us” email doesn’t respond. So I’ve come to leave a review! The following is a bug I’ve noticed and a design feature I want. Bug: Sometimes I win the pot but the chip animation goes to someone else. I end up with the chips but the game tells me I’ve lost. No I can’t describe a specific example. Maybe if there were a “bug report” option I would pay more attention the next time it occurs. Feature: I finished all the quiz questions. I don’t care when I win chips from the questions, I just enjoy the questions. Please allow me to reset the quiz feature after I complete all the questions. I don’t need to earn chips, I just look forward to my daily poker quiz. Wonderful app and very fun.
Horrible for poker
by Timmymorg on 2017/11/11 21:02
I am a user of the PokerStars lite app that is no longer on the App Store. I downloaded this for a friend who got a new iPad and tried it-HATED IT. He also hated it. To be fair I then downloaded it on my own iPad to give it a chance. I hate it even more now after using it. My login and password worked, but the menu and overall feel is terrible. If you are a fan of candy crush then this is probably great. It is like the many useless slot machine apps out there. Big graphics and wild sound effects. If you are a poker player that has been using the PokerStars Lite app or their website, this will make you want to quit playing poker. I am deleting it and hanging on to my Lite app as long as possible.
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.
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.
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.

Often the hole cars aren’t revealed when cards are dealt or you can’t fold your hand, you have to let the hand timeout runout.
Stopped working
by KayKB42 on 2022/05/18 13:34
Ever since I downloaded the new iOS update 15.5 the app stopped working. I really enjoyed this game and played it everyday. Please fix your app to work with the new update, please! I miss my game
Game down
by kmort1130 on 2022/05/18 12:51
It has been down for over a day now saying it’s updating on top of that when I play in tournaments the prizes I play for are never big ones
Caution !
by Harry203 on 2022/05/18 09:32
Stick in maintenance mode for more than a day and still going. Be very leery of how you spend your money for chips. This happens too often.

Best potential PlayMoney game but needs some improvements
by Frappstet(^_^) on 2022/05/17 23:07
I love it. The UI is clean and not too flashy (in a good way) compared to competitors. It’s easy to accumulate chips without paying. Leaderboards are just a grind and doesn’t factor losses into your ranking, fine. You can bet by sliding your finger over chips but it scales up too quickly. It’s really unintuitive. After 1400 hands I still “misclick” and raise all-in too often or bet too little for me to justify using the slider… I stick to tapping the buttons even if it takes me longer. I also raise accidentally when trying to call sometimes. WSOP has a better betting system using buttons, presets and a visual slider but that’s about all it does better. I wish I had more control over settings. I have vibration enabled but it only notifies me after the clock has 50% time left. It should notify as soon as action is on the user. This slows down play a lot. Overall I like the app but it could use some improvements. Edit: I forgot to mention… if you sign up with an AppleID you can’t sign in anywhere else but on Apple devices. There’s no option to link your account to a PokerStars account. I’m stuck to playing mobile.

Fun for play, not for real poker
by farfrompro on 2022/05/04 02:32
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.

Finally! No monotonous music at the table! Among the poker apps this has become my go to. WSOP has a shot clock that’s way too short. I like the pace here at PokerStars.
Lies for you to feast on
by stopasking120 on 2022/04/24 06:31
The so called “tournaments” where you can win “millions” of chips never exceed $50,000-100,000 on the “random spinner.”

Nothing like poker
by GJ3297 on 2022/04/11 23:30
Most players are bots and the bots hit every draw. The worst hand wins about 80% of the time. This app is an absolute joke that rewards poor play. I you have an hour to kill this isn’t a bad way, but I would flush money down the toilet before I actually purchased chips in this app.
A lot of fun
by [Data Redacted] on 2022/04/09 19:45
It’s nice to just play a casual game whenever you’re bored or just simply have nothing to do. I play PokerStars VR a lot but when I don’t ha e access to a VR headset, this is my go-to.

Good review
by devonclamp on 2022/04/04 20:26
Great game to spend spare time on.
Apple please investigate
by rmac84 on 2022/04/03 21:19
Apple please investigate this app. People are paying real money for chips only to have them stolen by obvious bots. There’s no way this is a random algorithm as claimed. 90% winning hands on the flop will lose 90% of the time if you go all in. IMO this is theft.
Freezes you out of High dollar Tournaments
by Sparkfire7 on 2022/03/24 04:04
If it didn’t constantly freeze you out of high dollar tournaments I would put real money in but, I lost 3 million chips because it freezes constantly and kicks you out of the tournament.
iPad GUI version
by TxDrummer89 on 2022/03/14 23:23
Need to find a way to allow this GUI version to be more like the Desktop version. Where you can choose which table and tournament options. I prefer the desktop, version but spend more time on here with my iPad

by akzkodoe wh on 2022/03/12 23:52
The worst poker game ever. At least make the decks deal random cards not set up for one person to win
The game is really good
by Akouz Ayoub on 2022/03/10 15:21
Really good game, the only problem i have is a weird bug that occurs sometimes especially in tournaments , sometimes you can't see your hand
Good Game

PokerStars Play
by TheWTCBrand on 2022/03/08 15:18
Great game but the so called algorithm used for tournaments and spin wheel is bogus for the simple reason of the same prizes are given out majority of the time. As well recycled cards seem to be common from hand to hand during tournaments….. If you’ve played poker at a casino it’s a lil different here and not the same environment with players

The worst
by Ocar Records on 2022/02/06 03:55
For two weeks I lost more than 70% of hands with 90% being on the river. The odds have to be astronomical. I lost multiple times to hands below 5's when I either had KA or higher pairs. Also losing multiple times to quads or even straight flushese. This game had to be rigged in some way. No possiblity I would lose the majority of these hands. I would never play this game again. Do not download!
Money, money, money
by This Ap is Trash. on 2022/02/04 04:40
The more money you pay into the game, the better hands you get. If you stop buying you’ll pretty much lose always. Have fun playing, but after a certain level you’ll have to start paying to keep playing. Edit: Still 100% true. Don’t waste money on this app. Edit: Still 100% true. There is no random fair dealing. As soon as you build up chips through the free spins/scratch offs and skill at poker... they won’t let you go forward without buying chips. You’ll never win another tournament.
100% Rigged- deleted
by Cheating-App on 2022/02/02 15:33
This app loves to profit from the ignorant. The cards are dealt in algorithms, basically meaning they’re not random and they never will be random. You have 13 individual cards, each individual card has 4 suits. If you were to play real poker with real cards, it would take a very long time before you noticed any type of pattern, if there is a pattern at all. Why? Because real poker is 100% random, It’s impossible for patterns to form with this type of odds. PokerStars poker is 100% predetermined, that’s why you see a pattern after pattern repeat over and over again. Totally rigged. Buying chips allows a player who loves poker but who might not have the kind of free time that is required to amass the necessary chips for the high roller tables to enjoy the game on their own level. PokerStars Poker is using rigged deals to make people buy more coins. The game determines a winner before the cards are even dealt. Then the game set’s up multiple ‘possibilities’ based on the player's perception, in fact, there is only one possibility and that is the winning one.
Big Scam
by hvxrhjiitrwsvbjjg on 2022/01/29 21:10
If you count the number of times you win/lose hands with over 95% chance to win/lose the odds of how you win/lose are far from realistic. I guess they like to keep it interesting. That’s why one should never play on line for cash

Hard to Read Showdown
by bdhsjiwjwnjw on 2022/01/27 07:52
Hi, I gave 3 star only because I want to let the developer know certain aspects it needs to be improved. The showdown time is way too short for me and it's not even 1 second, lots of time I don't even have the time to read the hands of myself and my opponents and I don't even know how I won and how I lost. Besides, the pop out window after showdown is even more annoying, sometimes it just block the showdown hands and I couldn't read it at all. Could you make it at least last several seconds? Or at least let user to choose the showdown time?
Really Questionable hands
by ty.bbq on 2022/01/24 09:07
I’ve played in a couple tournaments recently and have noticed some ridiculous hands play out for high stakes. I don’t trust the randomness of the shuffles
Charged me twice
by ilovetisssgamee on 2022/01/23 13:43
On December 31st, I bought $100 in poker chips, but the first time it said it didn’t go through, so I tried it again and it worked but it charged me twice, it charged me for the time it didn’t go through and the time it did go through. I messaged support on Facebook and they said they are looking into it and would get back to me. It’s been three weeks since and I haven’t heard back from them. I either want the other $100 in poker chips that they charged me that said didn’t go through or I want that $100 back. It’s been three weeks and this is getting ridiculous. Is there management or anyone relevant that I can talk to? This is crazy and I will not ever buy poker chips again.
2 words “bad beat”
by jbhodj on 2022/01/20 18:57
Suc out bad beats on this platform are frequent and prevalent. Audited for fair play is canned response from dev. Don’t believe it. It is fun to play just be aware it is rigged
Good platform same bad river beats as other
by tsgsbwt on 2022/01/12 21:51
This is the best platform out there, but the software is setup for bad players to win on the river just like the rest of them. Update: I’ve lost 13 straight tournaments on the river with the best hand after the turn. Explain that one, lol.

If the system doesn't want you to win then you’re not going to win. Doesn’t matter what you have. Ive lost about 40 to 50 hands in a row going in with the better hand. Ive lost on the river 15 to 20 hands in a row. Too rigged

This is a fun game but the card generator program does not approximate real card play. The outlier hands are just too frequent. This said this is not a cash game, so I enjoy the app and recommend it to friends.
Actually stop being rigged
by Edro Navissi on 2021/12/04 14:49
I keep winning because I’m good at poker but they always give the prize to the loser. I have played the game for 3 years and it was great and fair until this last month. Stop this right now and people might actually be interested in this game. It’s also putting these terrible streaks onto my account and others that spend so much money on this. The game used to be good and it’s wasting all my time on unfair matches against either hack clients or the game is just managed poorly by the creators. I demand a refund of the 50,000,000 chips sent off of my account to other people and the other chips I actually paid for and got glitched out during cash games. Please get a creator to hear about this.

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

Just like all the other games
by Driverdad1 on 2021/11/20 18:28
Thought this app would be different than the other poker apps. My mistake. Amazing how many times you can get beat by someone else catching a one or two outer on the river. Also entered a Sit n Go with a 500k buyin. Waited a few minutes for other players. None showed so I left the table. Got a message saying the buyin would be refunded to me but nothing yet. How about fixing this? Get to a certain level and you will never see anything to even play. Will be deleting as soon as I run out of chips

I have lost several hands even though I had the winning hand. This has happened at least 13 times that I can remember. It makes it hard to keep playing if you don’t know if you will win!
Constant glitches
by tonybass5555 on 2021/11/10 15:21
Constant glitches and issues every time there os an update.I am referring to the home games. Every time there was an update, something that worked just fine before, stops working. And when you write to customer service, They generally answer with some generic response that doesn’t help at all. As an example, the option to show cards or not recently disappeared. They seem to be more concerned with bells and whistle‘s, like stupid graphics, then they are with real issues. It’s still one of the only options, I guess best of the worst, but they need to get there programming house in order and stop messing with things that work perfectly fine.
Algorithm is the worst
by guest830 on 2021/11/10 12:37
This app is the worst. The algorithm will determine the winner of each hand based on bet size. Of you like giving money away they be all means go buy chips. These guys wrote a lazy app.

So many bugs and glitches
by redcowboyg62 on 2021/10/17 16:29
Game has so many bugs. Locked out of tourneys, game freezing, not refunding buy ins. I have sent in numerous screenshots and descriptions of the issues but as long as they are making money they see no reason to fix anything. Stay away.
Writing bad reviews has a price
by EyeGer on 2021/10/08 18:12
I have used this app for several years, on and off on the account that it’s totally rigged. As soon as I win big, there are no more winning hands. All of the sudden it is completely dry season until I’m down to zero. I saw this happen several times and would get fed up and delete the app. Did this several times the last several years until the last time, I decided to finally write a review sharing my annoyance with pretty much all of the poker apps in the App Store including this one. At least this one was not as bad and I could tolerate it enough for longer periods of time than the others. It is when it seems so obvious, and I find myself having to sit out or fold pretty much every hand that I get totally annoyed. After how many years and times of deleting and reinstalling the app, it is only after my bad review that now I started having problems with it. Writing to the support team does not help whatsoever. I went back and forth a few times and finally gave up on trying to fix the problem. Now anytime I want to play although I have ample amount of funds, all of the sudden I have a problem with reloading the amount back on after each round. So every time I play a hand I’m sitting there with less and less money unless I manually refill it and that’s if it’s not giving me error messages. To make matters worse, once I use all the amount I’m sitting with, I just get kicked out of the next round automatically. This happens at every play. Somehow this has been my experience only after I wrote a bad review, which happened to be deleted a couple of times too. So here is another one. Congrats on the level of maturity you handled this.

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

Cheated
by scorpdan on 2021/09/15 21:56
I had three 4’s in my hand and a four on the flop. I lost to a straight. It’s not the first time I’ve been cheated here. When a poker app can’t be trusted to get it right like that, it isn’t worth it. It’s a real shame.

by DarrellT007 on 2021/09/10 05:37
Don’t waste your time buying chips. The game seems rigged to give you bad beats, and take all your chips so you have to buy more. Never seen so many quads,royal flushes and bad beats on the river. On to the next one.
Rigged!!
by Jamerssssssss on 2021/09/02 03:45
The game is rigged, plain and simple. It wants you to spend money on chips. You flop three of a kind, someone else rivers a straight. You get a flush, someone boats up. The statistical odds of some of some of these hands are outlandish - and they happen way to frequently to be a coincidence. The poker is fun but don’t expect a fair game.

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

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

after about 2 months of playing and winning millions of money without having to use my credit card to “chip boost” the app will stop dealing fairly and make you loose every hand in order to get you to use your credit card to stay afloat. garbage app needs to be removed from the app store and executives need to be arrested.

by gm105 on 2021/08/10 17:21
I’ve been playing for many years. This is one of the fairest sites I’ve played on, with quite a few skilled players. You get daily bonuses that help sustain you through unlucky streaks. Safe way to learn the game while playing against experienced players and acquiring an instinct for the odds. The site has open tables for both Holdem & Omaha and three person Holdem tournaments. Remember- poker is a dance hall girl who loves you and leaves you as your luck changes. She follows the money. Don’t bet your house.
Joke

Love the app but can’t report bugs
by jacoblee00000 on 2021/08/03 00:30
Why can’t I report bugs? The “help” button shows me the hands in poker. The “feedback” button asks me to rate it from frown to smiley face emoji. The “contact us” email doesn’t respond. So I’ve come to leave a review! The following is a bug I’ve noticed and a design feature I want. Bug: Sometimes I win the pot but the chip animation goes to someone else. I end up with the chips but the game tells me I’ve lost. No I can’t describe a specific example. Maybe if there were a “bug report” option I would pay more attention the next time it occurs. Feature: I finished all the quiz questions. I don’t care when I win chips from the questions, I just enjoy the questions. Please allow me to reset the quiz feature after I complete all the questions. I don’t need to earn chips, I just look forward to my daily poker quiz. Wonderful app and very fun.

Super Spin Joke
by Feline_Nine on 2020/11/12 19:36
Wanted to get some free coins today and there was an option to rate Poker Stars to get a free ‘Super Spin, wish I didn’t spend my time giving this app a good review as the did not give me my free spin. Also, there default in-game responses are pretty cheesy like “I’m so tight now” or “Can’t call that much” when you fold etc., but not to big of an annoying deal. When you do their daily spin on the wheel I get $5,000 to $7,000 chips, and will get something more like $25,000 out of a million maybe a couple times a year.
Needs a fix
by Guest Pokerstar on 2018/08/19 14:40
The game is fun and it’s easy to use. The only reason I gave this a 3 star review is the profile system. It asked for my Facebook log in info or to create a guest account. I don’t like linking everything to my Facebook so I created the guest account. Played the game for a few weeks and then they closed the account. So I went into the settings and attempted to log in with Facebook. It didn’t work. Contacted customer support and they said I have to create another account. Why allow someone to create the guest account if you can’t use it long term/log in to facebook later? Not the worst thing in the world but it is annoying when you had 2 million chips saved up. I won’t be creating another account or playing this anymore. If you want to play this game, immediately create a profile using your Facebook info. Update: Changed to 4 stars since the developer reached out to correct the mistake. To the developer: My guest account was Goodflush570. I wasn’t able to link this to my Facebook after it got closed so I never made an actual account. Since I’ve removed the app I imagine the account is no longer active. Hopefully you’re able to see what happen. I appreciate the reimbursement but I don’t think I’ll be getting the app again.
Best potential PlayMoney game but needs some improvements
by Frappstet(^_^) on 2022/05/17 23:07
I love it. The UI is clean and not too flashy (in a good way) compared to competitors. It’s easy to accumulate chips without paying. Leaderboards are just a grind and doesn’t factor losses into your ranking, fine. You can bet by sliding your finger over chips but it scales up too quickly. It’s really unintuitive. After 1400 hands I still “misclick” and raise all-in too often or bet too little for me to justify using the slider… I stick to tapping the buttons even if it takes me longer. I also raise accidentally when trying to call sometimes. WSOP has a better betting system using buttons, presets and a visual slider but that’s about all it does better. I wish I had more control over settings. I have vibration enabled but it only notifies me after the clock has 50% time left. It should notify as soon as action is on the user. This slows down play a lot. Overall I like the app but it could use some improvements. Edit: I forgot to mention… if you sign up with an AppleID you can’t sign in anywhere else but on Apple devices. There’s no option to link your account to a PokerStars account. I’m stuck to playing mobile.
Do not buy chips
by merzap on 2021/03/23 01:38
I bought chips and they didn’t even give me the right amount of what I bought, after contacting the developer they gave me the difference (that was only after some back and forth emails). It was frustrating to say the least, due to the fact that if your the developer and you have my player ID you should know what was deposited in my account and what deal I bought. Not with poker stars play, they were questioning me as if I had not bought the chips with the deal I had stated. The good thing is I had taken screen shots of the play chips and the deal f not I feel they would had brushed me off. Another thing I noticed and this what has me displeased, It will play the hand and at the end you lost when you have the winning hand. The system did it on several occassions, I thought that I was wrong but on my last hand tonight I had triple 9 before river at the end of the hand it said the other player one with two pairs 10 2. How is that possible? do not waste your money. It would be nice if they had like poker stars lite or poker starswhere if you tap at the chat you can see what other players had in that hand and the id for that hand that way we could contact the developers.
Rigged
by kstoked on 2021/06/01 17:22
I been playing this game for years, I’m talking 5 -6 years. And I always buy the 30,000,000 chip package. I’m really good at poker and played almost 2 times a week for over 10 years. On this game Youll have a hot streak then, BOOM you lose back to back to back. I’ve lost 15,000,000 in a day and I played for hours and all I usually play is AA,KK,JJ,QQ and sometimes 89 or J, 10 ya know especially if up in chips. Well here lately after I bought 39,000,000 chips I have lost hand after hand after hand. And I’m talking all I’m playing is face cards. And it’ll never hit. I see a pattern too. 1 day I’ll hit hit hit, then the next I’ll lose lose lose. But you lose more than you can Gain. Any poker player can tell you that. . I just feel like they’ll give you a hot streak. Then take everything away from you so you have to buy more. And I’m upset about this cause I’ve spent Hundreds of dollars on this game. And the pattern never fails. I won’t spend another dime on this till the manager/ Developer of this game makes it right!! They didn’t respond to me last time. So I hope this gets there attention if they actually care
Proof that this is a sketchy app.
by fukjokerstars on 2021/07/16 22:22
Second review since my first one was replied saying they are fair play certified by gaming labs, and their shuffle and distribution are random. While this may or may not be true, I think they need to be tested again. I’ve ran simulations with my own cards in person and the results don’t match up. With a sample of 100 hands in the app, 76 hands were won on the river. (I only used hands where two or more players went to the river and showed) For example, two pair is leading up to the river, river comes and someone without a pair hits a gut shot straight. 57 of those were runner runner where they had for example 6 8 10 on the flop, and then comes 7 and 9 on the turn and river. After doing 100 hands in real life, 12 hands were won by the river card, 6 of those hitting two pair or making a boat. Two gut shot straights, and two flushes. Not a single runner runner. Obviously these results will vary, but Kind of off putting that when done in person with truly random cards, there were 64 more hands won on the river in the app. If you still want to use the app, just call everything, especially when you have no business doing so.
Garbage
by Cainsofoxford on 2019/03/31 23:46
It’s hard enough to sharpen your game playing with play chips because people will call you down with nothing. It’s COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE to sharpen your game with this rigged app. First off, their claim that the card generator is definitionally incorrect. There is absolutely nothing random about computers. Computers only do what they are told to do or programmed to do. And with this app, it’s completely ridiculous. I’m assuming that they program it to create “exciting” hands. About 75 percent of hands are decided on the river. There are an insanely disproportionate number of hands that contain flush over flush, set over set, etc. if you flop top pair, you can bet your life that the other two cards match someone’s hole cards. It seems that I am on the losing end of these rigged hands most of the time but I also have won several hands in the same ridiculous fashion. There’s just no possible way that all of these crazy wild hands that are decided on the river are random. Also DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY BONUS CHIPS FROM THIS APP. I did this on three occasions and after each time, I lost EVERY SINGLE TOURNANENT I entered until the chips were gone (lost 17 straight tournaments one time). Do not waste your time!
Finally had to delete
by Tape Doctor on 2019/05/11 14:08
Played for a year. I have noticed what must be random patterns according to all these poker apps including yep this one and read reviews of others that say same thing. Get a lot of beginners luck. See a lot of miracles on the river. See a lot of spin & go where you check all the way through with 6,7 unsuited and the winner has 7,8. Seen a lot of trips on the flop, get a full house and someone always has four of a kind. See a lot of bad luck after you buy chips. Seen a lot of bad beats including losing to three full houses in one session. Seen a lot of top pair hole cards where everyone folds before you can make a bet. Have been on both sides of all these but mostly the wrong side. Rigged or not and I notice that the developer does not say they have been certified by some independent fair play organization - which WSOP say they have and post every time someone writes a review like this one. In the end, if you want to spend money being entertained, then go for it. I went on a bad losing streak and deleted the app after I lost on a straight to a flush on the river. I am going to go back to playing with real cards shuffled by real people.
Glitches and patterns
by Geezuskereist on 2018/02/11 23:03
Was skeptical of new software (old PokerStars player) but gave it a shot. Not bad for a play money app. I have come across a couple of glitches that aren’t frequent but aren’t rare either where the check button doesn’t come up forcing you to bet or neither the check nor the bet button comes up - annoying but not often enough to hate playing. What I got into though was the leagues portion of the game. Unfortunately, I’m noticing that it doesn’t log all my tournament wins. I won several the night before and I come back today to a 0 balance (and yes, this was after the old league stats ended and should have been counted on new league) very disappointing. Also, they really should eliminate the 1.5x tourney prize on these games - but that’s just my opinion. Also starting to notice patterns of repeated odds beating by certain players meaning time after time in the same tournaments they defy odds to win. Not just the occasional bad beat but runner runner over and over again (and runner runner runner runner too). I understand the “Unbelievable” as one of your three default options for chat.
Not Random
by Chirnobyl on 2021/03/22 13:57
Of course the game will say the cards are random but their algorithm is off. When you hit a 3 outer at a 7% chance, it’s obvious that something doesn’t make sense. Their algorithm offers a 33% chance of winning a hand on a tournament rather than proper randomization on cards being dealt. It’s a fun game to play if you want to burn some time and money but it’s definitely not like real poker. Too many times have I seen AK lose to A8 because of a 4 card straight in the board or a 4 card flush. Not random, not realistic. Also, they base your rank and mastery level on how many chips you earn in a week. Not based on percentage of wins. So a Pay to Play player can buy millions of chips, play 1 big tournament for 50mil, lose all their money afterwards never winning another tournament, and still upgrade to next level of mastery, whereas a player with a 100% win percentage at 100k chip tournaments will never exceed past a certain level. This is a pay to play game with an altering algorithm designed to incentivize the purchase of fake money for their own profit. A big waste.
100% Rigged- deleted
by Cheating-App on 2022/02/02 15:33
This app loves to profit from the ignorant. The cards are dealt in algorithms, basically meaning they’re not random and they never will be random. You have 13 individual cards, each individual card has 4 suits. If you were to play real poker with real cards, it would take a very long time before you noticed any type of pattern, if there is a pattern at all. Why? Because real poker is 100% random, It’s impossible for patterns to form with this type of odds. PokerStars poker is 100% predetermined, that’s why you see a pattern after pattern repeat over and over again. Totally rigged. Buying chips allows a player who loves poker but who might not have the kind of free time that is required to amass the necessary chips for the high roller tables to enjoy the game on their own level. PokerStars Poker is using rigged deals to make people buy more coins. The game determines a winner before the cards are even dealt. Then the game set’s up multiple ‘possibilities’ based on the player's perception, in fact, there is only one possibility and that is the winning one.
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.
Rigged and full of bots
by smellyfartbox on 2021/09/20 10:32
I thought zynga poker was bad, but this game is way worse. Its full of fake players because they dont have enough real players to fill the tables. You get a bot in almost every game. TONS of glitches as well. Multiple times i waited in a spin and go lobby and no one joined so i went to find a new lobby and it tells you that your chips will be refunded if you leave but they never refund you. Multiple times i have had the winning hand and it gives the win to someone who doesn't even have a hand at all. The check button and bet buttons have also disappeared in game and made it to where i could only fold or run out of time and it would stand me up from the table in a tournament. You will also see a lot of things happen repeatedly that have astronomical odds of happening in real life. This game is horribly rigged and horribly run by bots. Save your time and money and look for a different game to play
Fun, 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.
Seems rigged.
by Mr. Jeff33 on 2021/02/12 18:16
I have been playing this app for awhile. I have even spent some money buying chips. I have noticed as you get higher in the tiers the amount of games won decreases significantly. I have specifically noticed when playing against unranked players the chance of getting beat on what would be considered unbeatable hands goes up. For instance I go all in on ace, king with an ace on the board. The other player shows 6, 3 unsuited. First of all who goes all in on this hand but then to hit 6, 6 runner, runner. And it has happened continuously, once I made it to the top tiers. Also the app has frozen on several big hands and caused me to lose tournaments as I have to leave and come back and by then most of my chip stack has been reduced. I would suggest spending your time and money elsewhere.
Can you give a negative star review? -⭐️
by SkisaWinner on 2020/04/26 20:11
Now that PokerStars has removed the 6 player “HoldEm” tables; completely gone & was what I mostly played, they can kiss this player goodbye!!! I played this game on occasion and climbed fairly well on my own and they have removed HoldEm completely. WTH?!!??!?!? Well, I hate that I have to, because their HoldEm rooms were pretty well laid out; insta-chat, player info, advance opportunities & so-forth. Even their customer service was decent; messaging was easy enough & quick to respond. So, I hope they listen to their customers & read my and other’s reviews, (I will check back in a week, or so to see if they have) I can honestly say, that if HoldEm doesn’t return in what I enjoyed most about the game, I will dump this game & they will have lost a customer!!! And I imagine many, many others will, if not have already followed suit!
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.
All poker apps are rigged
by card player1524 on 2020/12/12 19:22
Just when you think you found a poker app with real odds you didn’t.... the same as all the other so called certified odds.... so obviously not.... twice in one game I was one upped a card in a flush... he was dealt A10 spade and I was dealt K 9 spade but didn’t hit.... couple hands later I was dealt J 9 diamonds and he was dealtA Q diamonds and it hit and I lost.... in heads up poker that’s just about impossible to happen twice in one 10 minute game... it’s fun but not real at all... definitely just a time waster ... don’t play poker apps if you want to play real live poker the odds are nothing near the real thing.... the better you are the more they just counter that when they’ve learned you... they want people to run out of chips so you will buy more or watch an ad... so close... almost a good app... I have given up on these stupid apps
Omaha Issue
by Good🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 on 2021/08/29 20:23
Before I start off, other than the issue I’m about to bring up, I do think that this is one of the best fake money poker games that is on the App Store. I myself most commonly play Omaha poker, as I find it fun. However, recently I have noticed that the game is not registering all of the hands on the table correctly. Multiple times I have had full house, a straight, or 2 pair and it has not counted as what it should have. This results in me losing 350k+ pots where I should win but the game is incorrect, or when there’s a tie, it doesn’t count high cards correctly. I would greatly appreciate if they would fix this issue as I do really like this game. TLDR: Omaha hands not counted correctly Plz fix
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 :/
Actually stop being rigged
by Edro Navissi on 2021/12/04 14:49
I keep winning because I’m good at poker but they always give the prize to the loser. I have played the game for 3 years and it was great and fair until this last month. Stop this right now and people might actually be interested in this game. It’s also putting these terrible streaks onto my account and others that spend so much money on this. The game used to be good and it’s wasting all my time on unfair matches against either hack clients or the game is just managed poorly by the creators. I demand a refund of the 50,000,000 chips sent off of my account to other people and the other chips I actually paid for and got glitched out during cash games. Please get a creator to hear about this.
Impossible support
by Karatejoe13 on 2021/01/01 20:58
Have had to remove and reload over 7 times , bought 4.99 worth of chips an less than 24 hours can’t get it to open or load . It gave me a message asking me to take a screen shot to report to tech support. Trying to do that was a complete waste of time w a automatic pick your problem list that asked me to rephrase my question , Saying it did not understand?! SMH Click the green to contact a person?! Clicked it and started all over. I only invest 7 bucks but can tell you I would never gamble w any amount of real money because if anything goes wrong they make it impossible to reach them . Will definitely let my family and friends who do invest to beware. Sad . The only reason I gave 1 star is the little I played I liked.
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
Constant glitches
by tonybass5555 on 2021/11/10 15:21
Constant glitches and issues every time there os an update.I am referring to the home games. Every time there was an update, something that worked just fine before, stops working. And when you write to customer service, They generally answer with some generic response that doesn’t help at all. As an example, the option to show cards or not recently disappeared. They seem to be more concerned with bells and whistle‘s, like stupid graphics, then they are with real issues. It’s still one of the only options, I guess best of the worst, but they need to get there programming house in order and stop messing with things that work perfectly fine.
One of the best poker apps.
by gm105 on 2021/08/10 17:21
I’ve been playing for many years. This is one of the fairest sites I’ve played on, with quite a few skilled players. You get daily bonuses that help sustain you through unlucky streaks. Safe way to learn the game while playing against experienced players and acquiring an instinct for the odds. The site has open tables for both Holdem & Omaha and three person Holdem tournaments. Remember- poker is a dance hall girl who loves you and leaves you as your luck changes. She follows the money. Don’t bet your house.
Entertaining but too fast
by Якков on 2019/01/02 19:24
Fun and easy and visual. It’s free but not exactly free since you need more chips to play with better players. So chips cost something. It makes the game more interesting as players become more responsible. I put 4 stars and not 5 because it’s too hard to play for inexperienced players. Time for your turn goes by so quickly you barely can weigh your hand. And when the game is done and all the cards are on the table it’s only a second to see other players’ hands (to understand their ways of thinking) Overall it’s a very decent game especially for the regions where money poker is unlawful.
No poker
by Potatoess on 2020/04/05 00:26
This sounds ridiculous, but I opened the app today and there’s no option to play poker any more. Under the featured section, they are promoting their slot games and a chip buying event. There’s another tab for live games, but I can’t find the option to just get into a poker table anymore. I opened the app and checked it out a few times throughout the day, went through ALL the menus and I can’t figure it out. I’ve used the app a hundred times. I can’t find any resources or a way to contact them online so I figured I’d post a review here. Can anybody point me in the right direction? I am really confused why they would just remove the option to quick play from the front page and then make it this hard to find.
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
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.
Charged me twice
by ilovetisssgamee on 2022/01/23 13:43
On December 31st, I bought $100 in poker chips, but the first time it said it didn’t go through, so I tried it again and it worked but it charged me twice, it charged me for the time it didn’t go through and the time it did go through. I messaged support on Facebook and they said they are looking into it and would get back to me. It’s been three weeks since and I haven’t heard back from them. I either want the other $100 in poker chips that they charged me that said didn’t go through or I want that $100 back. It’s been three weeks and this is getting ridiculous. Is there management or anyone relevant that I can talk to? This is crazy and I will not ever buy poker chips again.
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
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.
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.
Hard to Read Showdown
by bdhsjiwjwnjw on 2022/01/27 07:52
Hi, I gave 3 star only because I want to let the developer know certain aspects it needs to be improved. The showdown time is way too short for me and it's not even 1 second, lots of time I don't even have the time to read the hands of myself and my opponents and I don't even know how I won and how I lost. Besides, the pop out window after showdown is even more annoying, sometimes it just block the showdown hands and I couldn't read it at all. Could you make it at least last several seconds? Or at least let user to choose the showdown time?
The cheaters seem to be more and more
by Limodriverjeff on 2019/02/28 06:48
I have found cheaters of a couple different kinds Programs are out primarily in USSR players that allow the user to see all cards and cards due to come off the deck They never loose a hand they are in and outrageously bet over the top on hands they are in. The next type are players from the same country. They never compete against each other and come in to the table at close to the same time and are on the phone to each other or on the phone to a few players at the table, again all from the same court try and never bet against each other and are usually out of hands by the turn card. It’s a problem that they know about at PS and have taken some steps to return integrity to the site. I have notice some obnoxious players loosing the chat side. Some are suspended for a period of time and can not sign in and play....then are Chat-less for awhile if I see them again. I enjoy the game and can usually spot consistent cheaters
Still glitches
by 64trying to be fit on 2022/05/17 23:23
Love playing this game and noticed from time to time it won’t open. Can’t sign in also. Restarted phone and deleted the App Started app again and it won’t let in. Support is minimal. They say they are escalating the issue and never hear back. Need to work on responses and glitches. At this time it flashes maintenance mode for 12+ hours. Deleted app, reinstalled app, shut down two devices and still getting errors. The app does not automatically save user name and password to your device. I just wish they would improve the games glitches and have better ways of reporting errors.
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.
Love the app but can’t report bugs
by jacoblee00000 on 2021/08/03 00:30
Why can’t I report bugs? The “help” button shows me the hands in poker. The “feedback” button asks me to rate it from frown to smiley face emoji. The “contact us” email doesn’t respond. So I’ve come to leave a review! The following is a bug I’ve noticed and a design feature I want. Bug: Sometimes I win the pot but the chip animation goes to someone else. I end up with the chips but the game tells me I’ve lost. No I can’t describe a specific example. Maybe if there were a “bug report” option I would pay more attention the next time it occurs. Feature: I finished all the quiz questions. I don’t care when I win chips from the questions, I just enjoy the questions. Please allow me to reset the quiz feature after I complete all the questions. I don’t need to earn chips, I just look forward to my daily poker quiz. Wonderful app and very fun.
Horrible for poker
by Timmymorg on 2017/11/11 21:02
I am a user of the PokerStars lite app that is no longer on the App Store. I downloaded this for a friend who got a new iPad and tried it-HATED IT. He also hated it. To be fair I then downloaded it on my own iPad to give it a chance. I hate it even more now after using it. My login and password worked, but the menu and overall feel is terrible. If you are a fan of candy crush then this is probably great. It is like the many useless slot machine apps out there. Big graphics and wild sound effects. If you are a poker player that has been using the PokerStars Lite app or their website, this will make you want to quit playing poker. I am deleting it and hanging on to my Lite app as long as possible.
Server connection closed down & had to reset my phone due to it freezing up

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.
Don’t pay money

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

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.
Completely useless

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.
