Rip off?
by 453289765432 on 2021/04/08 21:58
Twice in a row I registered for the same million chip buy in tournament and both times as soon as I registered I got kicked out of the app. Every time I tried to login the app crashed. Eventually I got back in and registered again and boom same thing kicked and crashes. When I was able to login the second time I did not register and instead checked the player list and sure enough I was listed as “finished” for 2 buy ins without playing a single hand. The app waited til I blinded out before allowing me to log back in. Now I did not use only free chips here, I purchased a chip pack so the value of the chips that were taken from me is $10. You get a million chips for $4.99 in their store. Not a lot but you can see it can add up fast. Might be an easy fix but there is no feature to contact support in the app so I am just screwed. Use caution if you start using this app. Stick to the free chips so when they start taking them you won’t be out any real money.
Typical
by app is free but worthless on 2021/04/07 01:31
A 4/9 called a pre flop raise from pocket aces. An ace appears on the flop. 4/9 calls pot size bet with no pair, just a runner/runner flush draw. BINGO! Hits the flush on the river with an all in call. The longest of long shots. The worst possible odds. Just call and see what happens.
Horrible Algorithms
by Wil Chavis on 2021/04/06 04:12
Just signed back on after many years. So far every time I have gone up against pockets I lose to trips. Won literally less than 5 hands so far. Either bad algorithms or rigged. Won’t play anymore. Just as bad when all the years ago I played cash. Greedy people!

Garbage
by Johna@187dotcom on 2021/03/25 21:12
Worst poker app ever created. Fake, fictional, farce poker. Unlikely scenarios seem to develop time after time. I won’t waste a dime for free poker chips or a low functioning application designed to cause innate emotional response to irritate. Full Tilt was 1000x better than this trash app.
Random cards explained
by I like to drink on 2021/03/25 01:54
How often does a 4% card appear here? You would think 4% of the time, right? WRONG! Over the last 3 months, a pretty good time frame for analysis, I’ve lost hands I had 95%, or higher, equity 75% of the time. It’s a large enough sample size to theorize these cards are not random. Each hand is dealt from a program. The word program means a specific design of events. Each specific design of events has a winner. Each hand’s winner therefore is predetermined based on who stays until the end. With these predetermined endings the programs can be “tweaked”, allowing a 4% card to “randomly” appear more often. Use caution when playing here.

by Skip the Bears Fan on 2021/03/14 01:21
I can’t even log in. Just bought in to a tournament and now the app crashes whenever I log in. Both iPad and phone AND I deleted/reinstalled on the iPad. No luck. Garbage.
Full of bugs
by musikmani on 2021/03/12 17:33
Every single time I open this app, my chip balance is mysteriously at 0! There has not been a single response from support, unless you count them putting my chip balance back with no comment, or explanation as a response. I’m very disappointed!
Unethical !!!

This site will steal your money - that’s my opinion & I have had this happen time & Time again!!!! BAD BEAT after BAD BEAT - they make you feel good by letting you win some and then the bad beats come one after another......Stay away from this site!!!!!! again my opinion ! Screw Poker Stars!!!!!!

I find it hard to navigate, I don’t like the fast fold. I just can’t never get comfortable with a table. Maybe I need more time. So I’m at 3 stars.
Shady
by dorito dan on 2021/03/03 03:23
Seems awfully shady when someone writes an honest review about their experience w trying to cash out their winnings and waiting several hours to get it resolved after contacting them but still no resolution as the player decided to continue playing and lost all the winnings. Finally a response (here, no personal contact) states that IF THEY REWRITE THEIR REVIEW, they can maybe get free chips to try and play other games! SAVE YOUR MONEY AND RUN FAR FROM HERE!!! I’ll be spending mine elsewhere; Thankyou to people who give honest reviews and shame on developers who don’t take responsibility - NO STARS from me
If you enjoy the app crashing all the time , this is the game for you

Help!
by JayRoxxk on 2021/02/28 21:25
So I recently downloaded the PokerStars Lite app, and I love it! The layouts between rings games, tournaments, sit and go’s. All of it is definitely making this a top contender for best Poker app. Even to different entry’s to tables, 9 top, 6 top, heads up. Only thing I have the problem with and makes me turn away from it is the fact you only get 35,000 when starting and of course 15,000 every 4 hours. That’s fine, but no table requires less of an entry than 4,000-10,000. If you can get lucky and hit a few times and run a table, you’ll be fine. But in my situation I took multiple bad beats in a row and now can’t play on this app unless I buy chips. $2.99 for 500k is kind of slack considering it’s real dollars converting to fake poker chips. I refuse to spend any type of money on a fake chip game, but I do wish that the starting amount of chips or the extra free chips every 4 hours be more than 15,000 or the wait time be reduced to maybe 2 hours or what not. After 4 hours of waiting who has time to play!
Not ready for prime time
by PuzzledX on 2021/02/28 02:36
Was tired of the competitors outrageous rare hands (4 of a kind , 3 times in one hour of play ?) Better here, but the app is super buggy. I have to uninstall and reinstall at least 5 times a week, as buttons in the app do not respond. Add in frequent pop up red 1’s indicating a Challenge is available, yet when I go to the page, I see No challenges currently available. Never once has there been a challenge. Recently an invitation to “Opt In” to throwable content, link/button never works. Honestly, it’s become so frustrating to use, when my $19.99 purchase of chips is gone, I plan to uninstall. :(
Clearly rigged for excitement
by Jaque888 on 2021/02/27 00:25
Never seen so many four of a kind, wild river cards, and coolers in all of my life. Don’t expect this to be anything like real poker. Also clearly ton of bots half the time you’re not even playing real people.

Best App, To Practice Poker, But Be Mindful It’s For Play Money!
by seandon375 on 2021/02/24 13:45
In my opinion this is the best app to play Poker and practice your game and have fun at the same time. You have to be mindful though not everyone is going to be playing as serious if it was for actual cash now. Seeing that we’re playing with “play money” nobody real let feels the actual pressure you would feel if it was your own cash. You will come across a lot of goof balls who will call a big raise with anything in there hand, also you’ll come across a few idjits who will go all in all the time. For the most part though, this is a great site/app, you have cash games, tournaments, zoom tables, etc... If you’re gonna play poker definitely consider PokerStars your first and only option!

Not random.
by matt1211 on 2021/02/17 06:56
When players are 15% to win and they get there 60% of the time, it’s time to change poker apps. It’s poker communism. Bad players win just as much as good players. Requesting hand histories are conveniently not allowed. Any basic auditing of the deal will show inconsistencies and anomalies. This is not real poker! This is Facebook Zynga poker! It’s not even close. Someone please do their homework and bring this to the press. It’s a publicly traded company that handles real money wagering. What a joke this site is.
Issues with site
by Trixx2020 on 2021/02/16 14:52
No one will respond back to you. Several times while I was winning on slots, site started having issues. The latest was while I was playing and winning, a message popped up stating they can verify my location in Michigan. My phone and my PC is up to date and everything is on. I consistently email them and I get zero response from their none existing support team. The chat doesn’t even work! Seem a little odd but I guess my next step is the Michigan gaming board and file a complaint. I even sent poker stars a screen shot and still no response. I feel like I’m being ripped off!

Don’t Listen to Salty Reviews
by DrackerDesign on 2021/02/07 02:17
I’ve played a lot of poker for going on 20 years. There are a lot of reviews lamenting over what people think are swayed odds. It’s not true. I’ve played a couple thousand hands already and I can confidently say the rate of good hands, bad hands, strings of 15-30 bad hands and runs of great hands is very much consistent with what one might expect playing in-person poker. I’ve tried every major hold ‘em app in the App Store. This is hands down the fairest and most pleasant to use. No overbearing ads like WSOP bombards you with, no action forcing, no perceivable scale-balancing. Just poker, straight-up, and that’s what I’ve been looking for. Great job, PokerStars. I can’t wait till you’re legal in NY again.

Don’t use this app or download on your computer. If you are ahead on a all in situation, you will lose 80% of the time. They reward people for making bad calls by letting them hit on the river.

Numerous emails and I talked to reps what happens is this a few times a week I go to play on POKERSTARS PA App from the App Store and I buy into Tournament’s and or cash Games and The Table only shows A-Quarter of the Screen and it won’t let you Bet Call or fold Even when Logging out and Turning Phone Off iT still Does it when Logging on while I asked for my money back no response also What about all the times IT does this and lost OPPORTUNITIES To win like AA Or KK just folding and eating away with the Blinds spent a few Hundred but now only spots betting is safe well Fox runs that. Anyway Just warning you it’s not software it’s there SERVER
Home games now on iPad
by Prof Fran on 2020/12/18 15:57
I’m very happy we can play Home Games now on tablets. However, I’ve noticed that your best possible hands are not noted like on the desktop version. Especially with Omaha, I like to know if I have a winning hand or not. Is that something the developer is working on?
Be aware this is not fair
by zynga'd on 2020/12/09 01:11
When I joined first i was winning all the time. Now I can’t win anything, the people hit their magic card on the river all the time. It’s just like other games, want to get you to buy chips. I know you will respond with our game has been certified for fair play but that is bogus. Hope this prevents other people from joining or at least be aware. People will get wise eventually. Play for fun but just know they have it set up to where you will have to pay or make it hard on you without. It’s an app with no ads, how do they make money?

Painful interface, otherwise good
by MorganStair on 2020/11/09 20:33
If you want a “play money” poker app, AND you want to learn the “poker stars” interface for poker, AND play multiple tables at once, AND you want to practice on full ring /6+ tables, then this is the app you want. But if you don’t want all those things then use something else because this app is really painful, boring, and slow compared to others. It’s so bad, I find that if I don’t take breaks, I get bored and start losing. I’m not talking “tilt” here, I’m talking frustration at how much time each player is allowed to sit there doing nothing when it’s their turn to bet. I’m giving this 3 stars because of these pros: (1) it’s legitimate poker that doesn’t cheapen the experience with lots of free chips, etc., and (2) I’m sure the “boring, slow, and clunky” isn’t a factor if you play several tables at once. I’m not giving 5 stars because they need to (1) add a “fast play” option, (2) improve the general quality of the user interface, and (3) add some social features to make single-table play a bit more interesting.
Bugs? Developer could care less...
by Thunderbolt59 on 2020/11/08 22:05
A bug was released with the last iOS update that prevents you from playing some games at any level other than the lowest buy in. Sent info to the developer and they said it was going to be fixed “soon”. 3 weeks plus and counting and nothing... This was a fun game when it worked properly - too bad the developers got lazy (hey, the spend money and buy chips functionality is still 100%).

Game is good but customer service won’t get back to you
by Opie2hot on 2020/10/11 17:37
I had really enjoyed this game until recently when I purchased chips and got charged but no chips arrived in my account. I had sent emails to customer service who initially asked me for screen shots in which I shared. Email stated that the situation would be resolved soon and to look for an email. Two weeks later and multiple emails asking the status, I haven’t heard a word. At this point it is the principle of the point. Buyer be aware that if you don’t get the chips you paid for that the customer service will leave you hanging. Sad!

by pddavis13 on 2020/09/15 20:57
After viewing/experiencing yet more unbelievable suckouts, I have reached my limit. A miracle draw once in a while would be acceptable but these happen every time I play, and these days I only play for an hour every other day. The ultimate: watched an idiot call a preflop raise with 63o. Flopped a 3 then caught the one-outer on the river (I held the case 3) to beat the preflop raiser holding QQ who went all in on the seemingly safe flop. That does not even make sense, and is not realistic. Again, this happens far too often to be random. Not worth the time anymore to play only to end up frustrated.

Never have I played a more unrealistic version of poker In my life. No matter how good a hand you get, you can be assured that a flop will go against you (and oh, surprise surprise, you can never bluff because somebody has the trump card always). Screw this game. Don’t waste your time.

Not enough variety
by cyberchomp on 2020/08/21 04:47
I am an admin for a rotating series of home games on PS. You would think that the roster of draw, flop and board poker games found on the desktop client would be available on the mobile app. They aren’t. Glad that the mobile app supports our home games, but it does not support draw poker. The lack of that type of game hurts our attendance whenever we schedule draw tourneys and mixed game tourneys where draw poker is a feature. Regarding this app, “Lite” is truly light. Stars, you can do better than this.

Setup hands
by TBgO@T12!11#87 on 2020/08/07 14:08
I have been playing with this site for a while now and initially it was to play home games with friends during quarantine, which worked out really well. The issue arises when you play on your own, I play strictly cash games and the last month it has been the same thing, cooler after cooler hands, not the normal amount, it’s almost statistically impossible for it to happen as much as it does. I constantly find myself in hands that when finished it almost feels like you are being setup. Being one outed 3-4 times in few days time, constant set over set and flush over flush. I am really considering having myself and friends look into another site for our home games because of the frustration level I am at at this point.

Not actual poker
by t180369 on 2020/08/02 06:50
The site runs well enough, but the game play has no relation to actual poker. You’re not playing with a deck of cards, you’re playing an algorithm designed to force action. Every hand is won by a set or better-quads are not uncommon. If you’re trying to use this app to stay sharp for live games, it’s useless.

Why rig the game?
by Stochasticman on 2020/07/30 18:05
I understand the developers want to make money and they should. The philosophy of this app is to give people incredible odds at draws to make the pot and rake bigger and the developers think that when people get all this action and lose play money, they will pay real money to buy play money. I am sure there are some idiots who would do that but anybody who understands pot odds and basic probability theory will not keep this app for long, yet along pay for it. So why are you rigging the game? Why not give true odds and put some commercials and make money from commercials? Please please do not tell me that “I feel the game is rigged because of playing many hands online syndrome”. That may work for your average Joe but will not work on people with advanced degrees in math and probability who can collect statistics about dealt hands.
Good but...
by Teevorpaul on 2020/07/30 02:27
App works but club games feature just doesn’t work. It works great on the computer, but the moment I try to join a table or tournament in my club with friends, it just opens up a blank table. Seeing this is the main use I have for the app and this business its pretty disappointing. Outside of that it seems to be decent but just a big part of it for me that just doesn’t work.
Finger print
by Rick Shepard 03131957 on 2020/07/18 00:14
Pokerstars is my favorite. Works great never any hiccups. The only thing I would like to see is the thumbprint identification on login like it used to be. I have over $5 million in play money. And I started with zero.

New version again with problems. Will not even load after waiting over 5 minutes. Going to delete and try to re- install. Liked the other poker stars app much better.

All these apps are the same
by Big thunder 1 on 2020/07/14 05:51
These apps are all the same. If you don’t pay them a dollar they’ll give you the short end of the stick. They can quote whatever numbers they want about how it’s fair, and it might be mathematically correct. But winning a small pot and then losing a monster, that that anyone who plays cards would call, is not fair. I try to make these amazing players that make gutsy calls try to talk and they don’t say a word. Maybe because they can’t?No difference in any of these apps. If you want to play cards, grab some friends and shuffle up and deal. Don't bother with any of these apps.

Needs faceid
by Yuletide on 2020/07/12 00:16
Solid app but faceid is buggy and only works after entering your password, also lacks working integration with a password manager. So this all makes me use it much less!
Awful! Site goes down frequently
by The REAL Humanikin on 2020/07/11 22:42
This site goes down all the time. I have to delete the app, then reload all the time. Not worth the hassle.
Cheats players
by Crosby's better on 2020/07/11 00:33
Completely unrealistic card algorithm paired with absolute donkey players. I’ll 3-bet pre in position with KK or QQ and get called by 7-5o and get sucked out on the turn. I could be a 65-90% favorite on the turn and lose the hand 45-50% of the time. Hands are literally set up like a movie. The amount of times I’ve shoved with KK pre and lost to AA, AK, or AQ is ridiculous. A 60% favorite is more like 35-40% on this app.
Great design. Improving function.
by LegMan Vein on 2020/07/07 00:15
Great design and table look. Has been really slow at times and hands would be automatically checked or folded (through no fault of my own!), but it hasn’t been improving. I only play with play money, and used to play with real money before the US government crackdown. Disappointing.
Poker Stars management

Full house lost to flush
by 5iPods on 2020/06/30 14:52
Played for a few hours until I had a full house and to other players had flushes. My full house lost to the flush. I was so shocked I double checked the game summary three times. Pay attention to what you had. You too could lose when you have a full house.
Unethical
by lvbluehen60 on 2018/09/22 06:43
I’ve been playing PokerStarsNJ for some time now...Although I’ve had some issues with cashing out before nothing like today. I made two deposits today totaling 330$. The site had no problem posting my deposits and then on to playing games. I thought to myself when they recently added sports betting it would be my all I. One shopping home for gambling. Today I tried on no less then 15 occasions to cash out some of my winnings only to be told “ I couldn’t cash out at this time.” Why not I asked ....they didn’t know but they would get right on it....that was 9 hours ago and all my winnings. As I sat on the site trying to gas out I began to play again, as gamblers would do ....obviously just as they had hoped I lost my winnings back... outside of my initial contact with them I have heard NOTHING! I consider not allowing gamblers not to cash out and hope they continue to risk their money as they have no other recourse, CHEATING! I have heard nothing all night to spite repeated emails....in fact when you hit the contact for issues button “you get UNEXPECTED ERROR “and you can’t even leave a message......what is going on here....doesn’t the state of NJ regulate this unethical business practice...

Worst of the online play money poker games
by Mithander1 on 2019/04/15 23:12
So I have played and ground my way up to 14 million in chips without ever spending any money to purchase any chips. Log in today to find only 4 million left and 10 million missing. I contact support and they give me the BS answer that they “accidentally” had given be a billion in chips (I wish!) and they had to go in and take it back. But oh, they gave me a free ticket to go play in the “billion” dollar tournament, so IF I finish high enough I might win some of the chips they stole from me back. I think the scam is if you are someone grinding it out and earning chips without ever paying for them they are eventually going to screw you over and take your winnings, since the goal is to make spend money to buy even play chips so you can play.
Research
by 1 dogbitbilly on 2019/03/17 11:26
I’m researching the online poker little different than playing live people looking for a place to deposit and play for real money I’ve played a good bit in my life never on the internet I figured out how to read by the way other players bet not having the Beni fit of reading body language i miss that and I know poker stars has the option to make a deposit but I will be careful of who I’m going to trust. I have to agree with the majority I’ve never had so many bad beats flushes etc, it certainly seems as if there are many bots on board I’m losing constantly with hands that will win 85 percent of the time three of a kind full House I mean really if you’ve ever played real poker you know that many bad beats js unrealistic seems when I do win it’s always a split pot. I don’t play with emotions I figure my outs calculate my odds I’m good with numbers and pretty much this defies all odds man so I guess the search for reputable online poker continues on and you made number ten on one the online review sites that I find credible it give the indication one should be careful I know I don’t understand how anyone could play on this fake money site and say yes this is where I wanna place a bet with my real money I feel I can trust this . One born every minute people just don’t do their own research I guess
Lol
by Ez blaze on 2018/12/21 06:33
The absolute BEST layout for tournaments. Has the most real feel to it. I absolutely love the design and gameplay, BUT with that being said it is the biggest scam out there. They want you to buy chips and that’s all it’s about. Not surprising because that’s just the way it is anymore. Every time I grind hard, and build up a nice bankroll, it only gets destroyed by absolutely TERRIBLE suckouts, and hands they set up that you just absolutely can’t fold. You will re-raise pre flop with AK suited and some donkey will call with 7-3 offsuit. The flop will be something like A-3-K and you’ll C-bet raise, get re-raised, go all in and the turn and river will be runner runner 3’s. DO NOT buy fake money play chips from these people. It’s not even practice because you’re learning the game the WRONG way. They reward the terrible players time and time again. This isn’t coming from some paranoid weirdo, I have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours playing Online Poker and gave this app more than enough chances. Just trust me. If I could give this app review a zero I really would. Without a doubt the absolute worst rigged Poker site there is. Can’t wait until an honest Poker site comes out where people can actually develop their skill set and practice. Meanwhile, I’ll keep wasting my time.
Two minor issues.
by Itabei on 2018/04/06 15:06
I like this app, but there are two fixes that would make it more enjoyable. The checkboxes, that are available to let players speed up the game by recording your intended move, change depending on the betting of other players. On more than one occasion I've gone all-in, when a box that said, "check," changed as I was clicking it. If the player before you goes all-in, the checkbox changes to call. The second thing is the sound the app makes if you are the first to bet, fold, or check a new hand. Specifically, if you are the first player after the big blind. The chirp is the same as the one used if you haven't made up your mind and are warned you only have eight seconds to bet or fold. That chirp is annoying. I know I have to play. The alarm isn't necessary, or helpful. The other sounds in this app are fine, so I don't want to just mute my iPad.
Impossible becomes possible
by denniston30 on 2020/04/25 01:20
The cards are random but sure seems to benefit worse hands and really bad calls. Also today was the second time I played a tournament and registered for a 5 million tourney. Then the app keeps kicking me off.. when I do get to play, my money is gone but I’m not registered in any tournaments. This has cost countless chips, 10 million alone in 5 million dash, not to mention I get on there to play with friends and family but ends up robbing you and you don’t play. They don’t reimburse you... they expect you to pay more money. Really disappointing that this keeps happening. If I don’t get reimbursed I will have to drop another review and continue to whine til I delete the app. I won’t pay money to this app until everything is squared up. Bad app, bad customer service... really no customer service. If you put money in your account it will get taken from you by horrible beats. I got knocked out by three people all with qj I had aces. They all 3 hit two pair on the flop... seriously.. ridiculous
Best App, To Practice Poker, But Be Mindful It’s For Play Money!
by seandon375 on 2021/02/24 13:45
In my opinion this is the best app to play Poker and practice your game and have fun at the same time. You have to be mindful though not everyone is going to be playing as serious if it was for actual cash now. Seeing that we’re playing with “play money” nobody real let feels the actual pressure you would feel if it was your own cash. You will come across a lot of goof balls who will call a big raise with anything in there hand, also you’ll come across a few idjits who will go all in all the time. For the most part though, this is a great site/app, you have cash games, tournaments, zoom tables, etc... If you’re gonna play poker definitely consider PokerStars your first and only option!
Rip off?
by 453289765432 on 2021/04/08 21:58
Twice in a row I registered for the same million chip buy in tournament and both times as soon as I registered I got kicked out of the app. Every time I tried to login the app crashed. Eventually I got back in and registered again and boom same thing kicked and crashes. When I was able to login the second time I did not register and instead checked the player list and sure enough I was listed as “finished” for 2 buy ins without playing a single hand. The app waited til I blinded out before allowing me to log back in. Now I did not use only free chips here, I purchased a chip pack so the value of the chips that were taken from me is $10. You get a million chips for $4.99 in their store. Not a lot but you can see it can add up fast. Might be an easy fix but there is no feature to contact support in the app so I am just screwed. Use caution if you start using this app. Stick to the free chips so when they start taking them you won’t be out any real money.
Don’t Listen to Salty Reviews
by DrackerDesign on 2021/02/07 02:17
I’ve played a lot of poker for going on 20 years. There are a lot of reviews lamenting over what people think are swayed odds. It’s not true. I’ve played a couple thousand hands already and I can confidently say the rate of good hands, bad hands, strings of 15-30 bad hands and runs of great hands is very much consistent with what one might expect playing in-person poker. I’ve tried every major hold ‘em app in the App Store. This is hands down the fairest and most pleasant to use. No overbearing ads like WSOP bombards you with, no action forcing, no perceivable scale-balancing. Just poker, straight-up, and that’s what I’ve been looking for. Great job, PokerStars. I can’t wait till you’re legal in NY again.
Changes in free poker
by Caseytori on 2019/08/09 23:15
Once you fold your hand you could no longer see what card you were holding which is disappointing and the fact that you can’t tell how much money someone has when they sit out for an extended amount of time. Sometimes people will sit out in entire game and you have no idea how long it will take to get them out. Previously both of these things showed when you were playing the game and they have been taken away. Also, no longer do they respond when you send a comment
Why restart just to get sound?
by Pramod7130 on 2019/09/19 19:39
I use almost latest iPad. When I stop playing for few hours, it correctly asks me to relogin and at that time, audio does not work. Occasionally it won’t ask me to relogin but shows zero for my chip count. I have a very strong opinion and feeling that they use robots and favor them by runner runner so that I keep buying play money chips. These robots say random stuff like have fun, can’t call for that much etc., and they chat very fast. When I try to chat, the chat window disappears and forces me to play. Make chat window more user friendly so that I can time little bit and switch to play mode, chat mode automatically based on my turn to play or not....a suggestion.
Site Great, App Not Great.
by Vituperat on 2020/02/07 05:50
I’ll go ahead and start by saying I don’t normally review apps, but I’ve played Pokerstars for a few years now and I have to say it’s the best site I’ve found for one of the activities I love, playing poker (and other casino games) with strangers. However, and it may just be me, but I cannot get this app to keep a solid connection for as much as a full hand as of now on the iPad app. I tried on 3 different internet connections and I live in a city so I don’t think it’s me. It would occasionally be fine for a hand or 2, but became a frustrating challenge when the game would freeze without showing me the next card, and then jump for me to need to act very quickly in order to get a bet out or call before my hand was folded automatically. Not a great experience so far.
Always lets bad players win!
by Bstump0313 on 2017/10/20 18:47
I used to love poker stars until they made it where you can’t play with real money anymore. Now I have to play with fake money and it will always let the worst players in history win over and over again. Also no one plays like they would in a real cash game. At least try to make it filter some how to not always let the bingo playing idiots win! I probably am going to quit playing for a while due to that. You’ll go 10 or more hands and not get nothing and the bad players get good hands over and over. You finally get a good hand pre flop and will call one of the bingo players and they’ll end up winning with a pair of 2s. Or you have a pair and go all in and other player have a pair of 2s and call it and they’ll get another pair and win. Makes the really bad players think they are actually good and they are not.
Why rig the game?
by Stochasticman on 2020/07/30 18:05
I understand the developers want to make money and they should. The philosophy of this app is to give people incredible odds at draws to make the pot and rake bigger and the developers think that when people get all this action and lose play money, they will pay real money to buy play money. I am sure there are some idiots who would do that but anybody who understands pot odds and basic probability theory will not keep this app for long, yet along pay for it. So why are you rigging the game? Why not give true odds and put some commercials and make money from commercials? Please please do not tell me that “I feel the game is rigged because of playing many hands online syndrome”. That may work for your average Joe but will not work on people with advanced degrees in math and probability who can collect statistics about dealt hands.
RIGGED: GOOGLE IT!
by ddd_texas on 2018/09/29 02:26
Find a game that doesn’t sell chips. This game is set up to make you lose when you start accumulating a big chip bank so you will have to buy more. I’ve wasted a lot of time (and money) learning this. You will get a lot more bad beats than EVER occur in real poker with a physical deck. Go all in every hand for an hour and you’ll see. Ask yourself “why don’t they give bonus chips for bad beats?” Before you think I am a bad player, in real live poker I have placed 10th for the year in a local poker league with over 500 members. I have won $1800 for finishing 5th in a charity poker tournament of over 100 players. I recently won $300 (split $3300) for finishing 11th in a tournament with 154 players. I am almost always at a final table. Joker Stars will probably reply to this review with a bot saying they aren’t rigged. BUT THEY ARE BECAUSE THEY WANT YOUR MONEY!
Welcome to Jokerstars...
by YRU2NVS on 2019/07/13 21:50
I have been playing both live poker, and online poker, for quite some time now. And just so there is no debate in my skill set, I played in the main event last year when I won a ticket through a charitable poker event. So, this is what I know: if you are behind a big stack call on jokerstars, you have a .032% survival rating. Do you see the problem? This is a program defined for a decomposing tournament structure. The reason is because IT IS A COMPUTER GENERATION. It was designed to narrow the field, so that the time involved for the software is minimized through the game play. When this us achieved, RANDOMNESS is NOT a FACTOR. THAT being said, I ONLY use this program to see more hands. NOT how they play out, because the odds are BS. EVEN the auto shuffle device on tables in the WSOP circuit would AGREE...
Bad Update
by Rocco1408 on 2019/12/07 15:56
I’m not a fan of this newest update. I hate the single chip, read how much it’s worth graphic. I really liked the far more realistic looking multiple chips for bets. This gives a cheap, cheesy look. I don’t like that you can no longer stay and watch a hand play out one you’ve folded. I enjoyed seeing what may have happened had I stayed in the hand. It also helps to gather information on other players and how they play (you know, just like in real life games). Taking that option away really detracts from the game. I don’t like the new sound effects when cards are dealt. Overall, just a pretty substantial step backwards with this update. I feel like I’ve gone from playing on a quality site to a cheap starter site.
Boring design, ugly avatars
by sassy arse on 2019/04/02 23:36
Guys, you make millions and can’t do a decent design? Seriously? Animation is a primitive school level. Learn from the Chinese. Check PokerMate or PokerKing. Whatever! Any app is better designed than yours! And your avatars - whose idea was to put all these ugly drawn cartoon faces? Picture of my grandma is better than this! Why don’t you give a possibility to upload my own pic? The app shows zero chips when I know for sure there are chips on the account. I had to close the app and re-login to see my chips back. To be honest, I’m extremely disappointed in your designers. It’s sooo 1980s level. Just hurts my eyes. If not 6+ Hold’em I wouldn’t even bother to open the app again. I am quite happy apple suggested this “lite” version. I can’t imagine playing real money on such awfully designed platform.
Painful interface, otherwise good
by MorganStair on 2020/11/09 20:33
If you want a “play money” poker app, AND you want to learn the “poker stars” interface for poker, AND play multiple tables at once, AND you want to practice on full ring /6+ tables, then this is the app you want. But if you don’t want all those things then use something else because this app is really painful, boring, and slow compared to others. It’s so bad, I find that if I don’t take breaks, I get bored and start losing. I’m not talking “tilt” here, I’m talking frustration at how much time each player is allowed to sit there doing nothing when it’s their turn to bet. I’m giving this 3 stars because of these pros: (1) it’s legitimate poker that doesn’t cheapen the experience with lots of free chips, etc., and (2) I’m sure the “boring, slow, and clunky” isn’t a factor if you play several tables at once. I’m not giving 5 stars because they need to (1) add a “fast play” option, (2) improve the general quality of the user interface, and (3) add some social features to make single-table play a bit more interesting.
Better than the WSOP App
by Rich364 on 2020/04/06 11:31
My review of “PokerStars Lite” to help others who are trying to find an App to play Texas Hold’em... this is the one to play. I was concerned by it being the “Lite” version, but have learned of no negatives. I was so frustrated while playing the “WSOP” App... the pop-up advertising was constantly intrusive and appeared non-stop, even during critical game play moments. This is not an issue with “PokerStars Lite” I can’t say if the cards dealt are truly random or not... but it does feel like you (and other players) each share in hot/cold streaks. I don’t play the App with real money, so I’m not concerned. For me, it’s been a joy to play against real players while in coronavirus isolation. And if you find yourself playing against a player who goes all-in every time before the flop... just leave and play at a different table (if that’s not your favorite type of player to play against). Again, I highly recommend this App.
Pretty good poker, 2 minor issues
by USSpaceCowBoy on 2018/01/16 22:12
Pretty good poker, only two minor issues. I'm not a millennial, so I have patience and prefer a game tempo that's not on the beat (game pace) of speed-metal. For all of you that are metaphorically challenged, Zoom, plays at hypersonic speeds (fast paced), and even the straight play-cash games are quick. But, patience is a dying virtue. Second issue, and the programmers can't control it, many players play under the philosophy of chaos, no manners: All in, after all in, nearly every hand. Smash play, not poker. Please, Play with some class, have some self respect, maybe even, is it too much to ask, a modicum of dignity?
Dropping
by !dutch on 2018/06/29 16:38
I play PokerStars on my home computer, my laptop, my smartphone and iPad. In the last few months every time I play on my phone and iPad I get dropped in the middle of hand. It happens multiple times a session and happens at home and at various hotel locations so it’s not the internet connection. Honestly if I had not built up a lot of chips over the last few years I would delete the app from all my devices.
Setup hands
by TBgO@T12!11#87 on 2020/08/07 14:08
I have been playing with this site for a while now and initially it was to play home games with friends during quarantine, which worked out really well. The issue arises when you play on your own, I play strictly cash games and the last month it has been the same thing, cooler after cooler hands, not the normal amount, it’s almost statistically impossible for it to happen as much as it does. I constantly find myself in hands that when finished it almost feels like you are being setup. Being one outed 3-4 times in few days time, constant set over set and flush over flush. I am really considering having myself and friends look into another site for our home games because of the frustration level I am at at this point.
Like all other app...".not very realistic
by Billy Sage on 2019/09/22 02:44
To many good hands get beat by a better hand. Example: 3 of kind gets beat by straight or straight gets beat by flush. Happens constantly. Can see it happening some but it happens so often it makes it not fun. Getting beat on the river happens constantly also. Last 5 tournaments I went out by losing on the river. It's ridiculous Again sometimes but shouldn't be as often as it does . Going all in with a good hand and then get beat by someone who has something like 9-3 or jack-8 really stinks but it happens pretty often. This app is pretty much like the others I have tried. Guess I will keep searching for one that is realistic
Game is good but customer service won’t get back to you
by Opie2hot on 2020/10/11 17:37
I had really enjoyed this game until recently when I purchased chips and got charged but no chips arrived in my account. I had sent emails to customer service who initially asked me for screen shots in which I shared. Email stated that the situation would be resolved soon and to look for an email. Two weeks later and multiple emails asking the status, I haven’t heard a word. At this point it is the principle of the point. Buyer be aware that if you don’t get the chips you paid for that the customer service will leave you hanging. Sad!
Gambling problem message?
by Delrio-12its me on 2020/04/01 03:15
I keep getting a message about getting help for my gambling addiction. This is for play money? I have been playing for 7-8 years for fun. Now retired and in a 19 foot travel trailer with Covid 19 running ramped out side, I alternate between big10 football reruns, back episodes of Monk (the detective) re-runs and pokerstars. And I play poker for free, I don’t think I have a gambling problem. Only too much time in the trailer with the wife and cat. Please get rid of ad for help for my “addiction”. Wife is asking if there is an ad for football addiction? Please advise. Sincerely. Delrio 12
Latest version slow to load
by bikediver99 on 2018/09/28 15:11
This is a great app. I play a couple of sit and go games every day. Other reviewers complain that they have to buy chips only to loose then to people who play badly but get lucky. A good player can deal with opponents like that. I’ve amassed over 50 million chips and never bought any. Now, I just wish the app did not require a sign on every time. Let me stay logged in until I log out. Developer responds to reviewers so let them know how to improve the app. Bikediver
Best poker software out there
by Kelron on 2019/04/03 16:48
I didn’t start playing poker till just before the DOJ shut online games down several years ago. I have tried many different companies. PokerStars stands out in both their mobile and desktop software. You can be a hobbyist or get serious about the game. The software enables you to catalog players according to their skill level, or their hands of choice. It’s up to you.
Challenging and fun!
by siebenzuhaus on 2019/05/31 14:51
Although I only use play money while enjoying the wide variety of games, the administration always responds to my inquiries courteously and in a timely fashion. The website works nicely and quickly addresses minor glitches. . . . I love playing zoom which helps to keep my mind sharp while providing exciting and challenging entertainment. My play money bank is well over 3 million!
Good Tournaments, Awful Buy-In Games
by Pocketvideographer on 2019/11/06 09:28
The tournament structures are good, the action seems fair, and so far I’ve had fun playing in tournaments (inclusive of the sit & go options). The so-called cash games are awful. I make no observations on the randomness of cards being dealt. I will only say that my experience is that if you’re ahead on the flop you’ll likely to be behind by the river. Bottom line: if you like playing in tournament and sit & go structures, this is a good app. However, if you prefer the buy-in format, I would advise you look elsewhere.
Besides being rigged so the worst players win...
by InvictusRose on 2019/02/08 17:25
the game makes you pick your desired seat before each game, instead of allowing you to choose your preferred seat just once in Preferences. The game layout is made for lefties. All the controls are on the bottom left, forcing a righty to cover the dialogue box and, if your hand hovers over the controls, you’ll soon find yourself accidentally calling some donks crazy all in bet. Controls placement should be in Preferences or, simpler still, allow a player to drag them on the screen wherever they feel most comfortable.
App shuts you Down from time to time
by rant g on 2020/12/22 19:50
Numerous emails and I talked to reps what happens is this a few times a week I go to play on POKERSTARS PA App from the App Store and I buy into Tournament’s and or cash Games and The Table only shows A-Quarter of the Screen and it won’t let you Bet Call or fold Even when Logging out and Turning Phone Off iT still Does it when Logging on while I asked for my money back no response also What about all the times IT does this and lost OPPORTUNITIES To win like AA Or KK just folding and eating away with the Blinds spent a few Hundred but now only spots betting is safe well Fox runs that. Anyway Just warning you it’s not software it’s there SERVER
Poor support
by fmk1221 on 2020/01/27 19:31
I have been with Poker Stars Lite forever. Since I live in Florida I cannot play with real money, but have been able to buy chips tp play with. Now I cannot buy chips. There is no answer when I contact support. Poker stars adds chips after so many hours and I was building up to play in a tournament and the chips disappeared. Can someone please explain!!!!
Issues with site
by Trixx2020 on 2021/02/16 14:52
No one will respond back to you. Several times while I was winning on slots, site started having issues. The latest was while I was playing and winning, a message popped up stating they can verify my location in Michigan. My phone and my PC is up to date and everything is on. I consistently email them and I get zero response from their none existing support team. The chat doesn’t even work! Seem a little odd but I guess my next step is the Michigan gaming board and file a complaint. I even sent poker stars a screen shot and still no response. I feel like I’m being ripped off!
This Site Has A Lot Of Immature People On It
by anon4337 on 2019/11/05 00:34
There are a lot immature people on this site that don’t know the first thing about how to play live poker. If they did, they wouldn’t be hounding you to act in less than 5 seconds. I don’t talk on these message boards, but some of these players are just ridiculous jerks. On top of that, I just want to play on here for fun; I play for money at legit places. And I think I am going to just disengage my account as I’m sick of the stupidity. They should have a website for legit adults to play on and then another one for kids 25 and younger to play on that have no life or social skill sets.
Not enough variety
by cyberchomp on 2020/08/21 04:47
I am an admin for a rotating series of home games on PS. You would think that the roster of draw, flop and board poker games found on the desktop client would be available on the mobile app. They aren’t. Glad that the mobile app supports our home games, but it does not support draw poker. The lack of that type of game hurts our attendance whenever we schedule draw tourneys and mixed game tourneys where draw poker is a feature. Regarding this app, “Lite” is truly light. Stars, you can do better than this.
All these apps are the same
by Big thunder 1 on 2020/07/14 05:51
These apps are all the same. If you don’t pay them a dollar they’ll give you the short end of the stick. They can quote whatever numbers they want about how it’s fair, and it might be mathematically correct. But winning a small pot and then losing a monster, that that anyone who plays cards would call, is not fair. I try to make these amazing players that make gutsy calls try to talk and they don’t say a word. Maybe because they can’t?No difference in any of these apps. If you want to play cards, grab some friends and shuffle up and deal. Don't bother with any of these apps.
Hardly worth the time
by Timr25 on 2018/04/02 03:24
Don’t think this is a poker site. It isn’t. The play chip mentality makes it a lotto site not worth your time. They offer deals if you buy chips and create an atmosphere of stupid play because there is not a risk of losing real money. The odds are so jacked in favor of calling thru the river, a 5 2 off suit will prevail a stupid amount of the time. Quads beating full houses are frequent enough as to be outright stupid. An river callers are way too frequently rewarded. And it’s likely the site runs bots to generate betting to pull some of the worst beats you’ll ever see. Then offer you deals to get premiums if you’ll buy chips. Stay way.
Please respond

I was playing on my old computer but it doesn’t work any more. I want to download my account to my IPad but not too sure which one to select. I had been playing since we could play w real money and I noticed you have a selection that says real money. Is it okay to play w real money if you live in California? I love this web site
Best free play poker around
by Grizzers21 on 2019/12/28 19:59
This is by far the best “play money” poker app (even compared to websites too) that you can play. Large variety of games and it’s a lot more like real poker than the other apps where people will shove with trash because they can. Always lots of people on so there’s basically no wait times for sit and go’s and such. Great for practice or fun!
Deleting app and from computer
by pddavis13 on 2020/09/15 20:57
After viewing/experiencing yet more unbelievable suckouts, I have reached my limit. A miracle draw once in a while would be acceptable but these happen every time I play, and these days I only play for an hour every other day. The ultimate: watched an idiot call a preflop raise with 63o. Flopped a 3 then caught the one-outer on the river (I held the case 3) to beat the preflop raiser holding QQ who went all in on the seemingly safe flop. That does not even make sense, and is not realistic. Again, this happens far too often to be random. Not worth the time anymore to play only to end up frustrated.
Not Real Poker
by Easy Chair Explorer on 2019/02/19 22:12
I’ve played at numerous sites and this is the worst as far as dealing predictable and corrupt hands. The winning hand is almost always dealt on the River Card and the Robo house player wins with a less than stellar hand normally a player has 3 of a kind and a flush or straight is dealt usually unheard of in Real poker rooms but quite normal here. After <5 minutes of playing here the joy of playing rapidly dissipates. Try using a random number generator or some other method for dealing cards and you may start seeing positive reviews instead of attracting the idiot all in non players which absolutely ruin the game.
Be aware this is not fair
by zynga'd on 2020/12/09 01:11
When I joined first i was winning all the time. Now I can’t win anything, the people hit their magic card on the river all the time. It’s just like other games, want to get you to buy chips. I know you will respond with our game has been certified for fair play but that is bogus. Hope this prevents other people from joining or at least be aware. People will get wise eventually. Play for fun but just know they have it set up to where you will have to pay or make it hard on you without. It’s an app with no ads, how do they make money?

by Nadmoorv on 2018/11/02 20:21
Pretty good not perfect. I play a lot for free, never bought chips. I've managed to increase from playing very low level games to 100,000 and occasional 500,000 games. I do seem to run in streaks where I double my total chips to lose half my chips. I assume that is the game, but occasionally wonder if the computer is involved.
Shady
by dorito dan on 2021/03/03 03:23
Seems awfully shady when someone writes an honest review about their experience w trying to cash out their winnings and waiting several hours to get it resolved after contacting them but still no resolution as the player decided to continue playing and lost all the winnings. Finally a response (here, no personal contact) states that IF THEY REWRITE THEIR REVIEW, they can maybe get free chips to try and play other games! SAVE YOUR MONEY AND RUN FAR FROM HERE!!! I’ll be spending mine elsewhere; Thankyou to people who give honest reviews and shame on developers who don’t take responsibility - NO STARS from me
Somethings very wrong
by papazman on 2020/05/03 16:03
Website is not working now. Can log in but cannot play many of the games. Buy in is also messed up. The pop up for responsible gaming is annoying and difficult to close. It acts like a virus. Please get rid of this pop up. I don’t need to be reminded if responsible gaming EVERY time I log in. It’s play money.
Freezing
by marys beach inn on 2020/04/05 23:03
I found out the freezing is caused by slow internet. When mine starts freezing I unplug my modem and plug it back in and no more freezing for awhile. After awhile it slows down again and I repeat the above. How can you say this app is play money and then fill it with cash games! False advertising!
Better than WSOP
by dfherut91 on 2019/02/19 03:58
I use to think that the WSOP app was the best but this is far better except for visuals which I understand is currently in a beta phase so that should become a non issue. I love all the options and tournaments and different levels of play available that truly make this stand out from the rest.
2 years and counting waiting for customer support!
by EATTHATMUNKEY on 2019/08/26 04:46
Even if play money poker is all you wish to do- this app doesn’t deserve your time. I’ve been trying to purchase play chips for two years on ad off as I replenish my free supply of 15k free chips every 3 hours or so... the charged my account for the $4.99 play chips pack I wanted - but it’s been 2 years and I haven’t received them. Whenever I sign in, I get a message that my purchase has been processed- they’re having issues distributing them to my account. This app is a joke.

Rip off?
by 453289765432 on 2021/04/08 21:58
Twice in a row I registered for the same million chip buy in tournament and both times as soon as I registered I got kicked out of the app. Every time I tried to login the app crashed. Eventually I got back in and registered again and boom same thing kicked and crashes. When I was able to login the second time I did not register and instead checked the player list and sure enough I was listed as “finished” for 2 buy ins without playing a single hand. The app waited til I blinded out before allowing me to log back in. Now I did not use only free chips here, I purchased a chip pack so the value of the chips that were taken from me is $10. You get a million chips for $4.99 in their store. Not a lot but you can see it can add up fast. Might be an easy fix but there is no feature to contact support in the app so I am just screwed. Use caution if you start using this app. Stick to the free chips so when they start taking them you won’t be out any real money.
Typical
by app is free but worthless on 2021/04/07 01:31
A 4/9 called a pre flop raise from pocket aces. An ace appears on the flop. 4/9 calls pot size bet with no pair, just a runner/runner flush draw. BINGO! Hits the flush on the river with an all in call. The longest of long shots. The worst possible odds. Just call and see what happens.
Horrible Algorithms
by Wil Chavis on 2021/04/06 04:12
Just signed back on after many years. So far every time I have gone up against pockets I lose to trips. Won literally less than 5 hands so far. Either bad algorithms or rigged. Won’t play anymore. Just as bad when all the years ago I played cash. Greedy people!

by Johna@187dotcom on 2021/03/25 21:12
Worst poker app ever created. Fake, fictional, farce poker. Unlikely scenarios seem to develop time after time. I won’t waste a dime for free poker chips or a low functioning application designed to cause innate emotional response to irritate. Full Tilt was 1000x better than this trash app.
Random cards explained
by I like to drink on 2021/03/25 01:54
How often does a 4% card appear here? You would think 4% of the time, right? WRONG! Over the last 3 months, a pretty good time frame for analysis, I’ve lost hands I had 95%, or higher, equity 75% of the time. It’s a large enough sample size to theorize these cards are not random. Each hand is dealt from a program. The word program means a specific design of events. Each specific design of events has a winner. Each hand’s winner therefore is predetermined based on who stays until the end. With these predetermined endings the programs can be “tweaked”, allowing a 4% card to “randomly” appear more often. Use caution when playing here.

Help!
by JayRoxxk on 2021/02/28 21:25
So I recently downloaded the PokerStars Lite app, and I love it! The layouts between rings games, tournaments, sit and go’s. All of it is definitely making this a top contender for best Poker app. Even to different entry’s to tables, 9 top, 6 top, heads up. Only thing I have the problem with and makes me turn away from it is the fact you only get 35,000 when starting and of course 15,000 every 4 hours. That’s fine, but no table requires less of an entry than 4,000-10,000. If you can get lucky and hit a few times and run a table, you’ll be fine. But in my situation I took multiple bad beats in a row and now can’t play on this app unless I buy chips. $2.99 for 500k is kind of slack considering it’s real dollars converting to fake poker chips. I refuse to spend any type of money on a fake chip game, but I do wish that the starting amount of chips or the extra free chips every 4 hours be more than 15,000 or the wait time be reduced to maybe 2 hours or what not. After 4 hours of waiting who has time to play!
Not ready for prime time
by PuzzledX on 2021/02/28 02:36
Was tired of the competitors outrageous rare hands (4 of a kind , 3 times in one hour of play ?) Better here, but the app is super buggy. I have to uninstall and reinstall at least 5 times a week, as buttons in the app do not respond. Add in frequent pop up red 1’s indicating a Challenge is available, yet when I go to the page, I see No challenges currently available. Never once has there been a challenge. Recently an invitation to “Opt In” to throwable content, link/button never works. Honestly, it’s become so frustrating to use, when my $19.99 purchase of chips is gone, I plan to uninstall. :(
Clearly rigged for excitement
by Jaque888 on 2021/02/27 00:25
Never seen so many four of a kind, wild river cards, and coolers in all of my life. Don’t expect this to be anything like real poker. Also clearly ton of bots half the time you’re not even playing real people.

Best App, To Practice Poker, But Be Mindful It’s For Play Money!
by seandon375 on 2021/02/24 13:45
In my opinion this is the best app to play Poker and practice your game and have fun at the same time. You have to be mindful though not everyone is going to be playing as serious if it was for actual cash now. Seeing that we’re playing with “play money” nobody real let feels the actual pressure you would feel if it was your own cash. You will come across a lot of goof balls who will call a big raise with anything in there hand, also you’ll come across a few idjits who will go all in all the time. For the most part though, this is a great site/app, you have cash games, tournaments, zoom tables, etc... If you’re gonna play poker definitely consider PokerStars your first and only option!

by matt1211 on 2021/02/17 06:56
When players are 15% to win and they get there 60% of the time, it’s time to change poker apps. It’s poker communism. Bad players win just as much as good players. Requesting hand histories are conveniently not allowed. Any basic auditing of the deal will show inconsistencies and anomalies. This is not real poker! This is Facebook Zynga poker! It’s not even close. Someone please do their homework and bring this to the press. It’s a publicly traded company that handles real money wagering. What a joke this site is.

Don’t Listen to Salty Reviews
by DrackerDesign on 2021/02/07 02:17
I’ve played a lot of poker for going on 20 years. There are a lot of reviews lamenting over what people think are swayed odds. It’s not true. I’ve played a couple thousand hands already and I can confidently say the rate of good hands, bad hands, strings of 15-30 bad hands and runs of great hands is very much consistent with what one might expect playing in-person poker. I’ve tried every major hold ‘em app in the App Store. This is hands down the fairest and most pleasant to use. No overbearing ads like WSOP bombards you with, no action forcing, no perceivable scale-balancing. Just poker, straight-up, and that’s what I’ve been looking for. Great job, PokerStars. I can’t wait till you’re legal in NY again.

Don’t use this app or download on your computer. If you are ahead on a all in situation, you will lose 80% of the time. They reward people for making bad calls by letting them hit on the river.

Painful interface, otherwise good
by MorganStair on 2020/11/09 20:33
If you want a “play money” poker app, AND you want to learn the “poker stars” interface for poker, AND play multiple tables at once, AND you want to practice on full ring /6+ tables, then this is the app you want. But if you don’t want all those things then use something else because this app is really painful, boring, and slow compared to others. It’s so bad, I find that if I don’t take breaks, I get bored and start losing. I’m not talking “tilt” here, I’m talking frustration at how much time each player is allowed to sit there doing nothing when it’s their turn to bet. I’m giving this 3 stars because of these pros: (1) it’s legitimate poker that doesn’t cheapen the experience with lots of free chips, etc., and (2) I’m sure the “boring, slow, and clunky” isn’t a factor if you play several tables at once. I’m not giving 5 stars because they need to (1) add a “fast play” option, (2) improve the general quality of the user interface, and (3) add some social features to make single-table play a bit more interesting.
Bugs? Developer could care less...
by Thunderbolt59 on 2020/11/08 22:05
A bug was released with the last iOS update that prevents you from playing some games at any level other than the lowest buy in. Sent info to the developer and they said it was going to be fixed “soon”. 3 weeks plus and counting and nothing... This was a fun game when it worked properly - too bad the developers got lazy (hey, the spend money and buy chips functionality is still 100%).

If you can make it no more than 15 seconds, for someone to play. Instead of whatever you do it’s too long.
Game is good but customer service won’t get back to you
by Opie2hot on 2020/10/11 17:37
I had really enjoyed this game until recently when I purchased chips and got charged but no chips arrived in my account. I had sent emails to customer service who initially asked me for screen shots in which I shared. Email stated that the situation would be resolved soon and to look for an email. Two weeks later and multiple emails asking the status, I haven’t heard a word. At this point it is the principle of the point. Buyer be aware that if you don’t get the chips you paid for that the customer service will leave you hanging. Sad!

Deleting app and from computer
by pddavis13 on 2020/09/15 20:57
After viewing/experiencing yet more unbelievable suckouts, I have reached my limit. A miracle draw once in a while would be acceptable but these happen every time I play, and these days I only play for an hour every other day. The ultimate: watched an idiot call a preflop raise with 63o. Flopped a 3 then caught the one-outer on the river (I held the case 3) to beat the preflop raiser holding QQ who went all in on the seemingly safe flop. That does not even make sense, and is not realistic. Again, this happens far too often to be random. Not worth the time anymore to play only to end up frustrated.

Never have I played a more unrealistic version of poker In my life. No matter how good a hand you get, you can be assured that a flop will go against you (and oh, surprise surprise, you can never bluff because somebody has the trump card always). Screw this game. Don’t waste your time.

Not enough variety
by cyberchomp on 2020/08/21 04:47
I am an admin for a rotating series of home games on PS. You would think that the roster of draw, flop and board poker games found on the desktop client would be available on the mobile app. They aren’t. Glad that the mobile app supports our home games, but it does not support draw poker. The lack of that type of game hurts our attendance whenever we schedule draw tourneys and mixed game tourneys where draw poker is a feature. Regarding this app, “Lite” is truly light. Stars, you can do better than this.

Setup hands
by TBgO@T12!11#87 on 2020/08/07 14:08
I have been playing with this site for a while now and initially it was to play home games with friends during quarantine, which worked out really well. The issue arises when you play on your own, I play strictly cash games and the last month it has been the same thing, cooler after cooler hands, not the normal amount, it’s almost statistically impossible for it to happen as much as it does. I constantly find myself in hands that when finished it almost feels like you are being setup. Being one outed 3-4 times in few days time, constant set over set and flush over flush. I am really considering having myself and friends look into another site for our home games because of the frustration level I am at at this point.

Not actual poker
by t180369 on 2020/08/02 06:50
The site runs well enough, but the game play has no relation to actual poker. You’re not playing with a deck of cards, you’re playing an algorithm designed to force action. Every hand is won by a set or better-quads are not uncommon. If you’re trying to use this app to stay sharp for live games, it’s useless.

Why rig the game?
by Stochasticman on 2020/07/30 18:05
I understand the developers want to make money and they should. The philosophy of this app is to give people incredible odds at draws to make the pot and rake bigger and the developers think that when people get all this action and lose play money, they will pay real money to buy play money. I am sure there are some idiots who would do that but anybody who understands pot odds and basic probability theory will not keep this app for long, yet along pay for it. So why are you rigging the game? Why not give true odds and put some commercials and make money from commercials? Please please do not tell me that “I feel the game is rigged because of playing many hands online syndrome”. That may work for your average Joe but will not work on people with advanced degrees in math and probability who can collect statistics about dealt hands.
Good but...
by Teevorpaul on 2020/07/30 02:27
App works but club games feature just doesn’t work. It works great on the computer, but the moment I try to join a table or tournament in my club with friends, it just opens up a blank table. Seeing this is the main use I have for the app and this business its pretty disappointing. Outside of that it seems to be decent but just a big part of it for me that just doesn’t work.

All these apps are the same
by Big thunder 1 on 2020/07/14 05:51
These apps are all the same. If you don’t pay them a dollar they’ll give you the short end of the stick. They can quote whatever numbers they want about how it’s fair, and it might be mathematically correct. But winning a small pot and then losing a monster, that that anyone who plays cards would call, is not fair. I try to make these amazing players that make gutsy calls try to talk and they don’t say a word. Maybe because they can’t?No difference in any of these apps. If you want to play cards, grab some friends and shuffle up and deal. Don't bother with any of these apps.

Cheats players
by Crosby's better on 2020/07/11 00:33
Completely unrealistic card algorithm paired with absolute donkey players. I’ll 3-bet pre in position with KK or QQ and get called by 7-5o and get sucked out on the turn. I could be a 65-90% favorite on the turn and lose the hand 45-50% of the time. Hands are literally set up like a movie. The amount of times I’ve shoved with KK pre and lost to AA, AK, or AQ is ridiculous. A 60% favorite is more like 35-40% on this app.
Great design. Improving function.
by LegMan Vein on 2020/07/07 00:15
Great design and table look. Has been really slow at times and hands would be automatically checked or folded (through no fault of my own!), but it hasn’t been improving. I only play with play money, and used to play with real money before the US government crackdown. Disappointing.

Unethical
by lvbluehen60 on 2018/09/22 06:43
I’ve been playing PokerStarsNJ for some time now...Although I’ve had some issues with cashing out before nothing like today. I made two deposits today totaling 330$. The site had no problem posting my deposits and then on to playing games. I thought to myself when they recently added sports betting it would be my all I. One shopping home for gambling. Today I tried on no less then 15 occasions to cash out some of my winnings only to be told “ I couldn’t cash out at this time.” Why not I asked ....they didn’t know but they would get right on it....that was 9 hours ago and all my winnings. As I sat on the site trying to gas out I began to play again, as gamblers would do ....obviously just as they had hoped I lost my winnings back... outside of my initial contact with them I have heard NOTHING! I consider not allowing gamblers not to cash out and hope they continue to risk their money as they have no other recourse, CHEATING! I have heard nothing all night to spite repeated emails....in fact when you hit the contact for issues button “you get UNEXPECTED ERROR “and you can’t even leave a message......what is going on here....doesn’t the state of NJ regulate this unethical business practice...

Worst of the online play money poker games
by Mithander1 on 2019/04/15 23:12
So I have played and ground my way up to 14 million in chips without ever spending any money to purchase any chips. Log in today to find only 4 million left and 10 million missing. I contact support and they give me the BS answer that they “accidentally” had given be a billion in chips (I wish!) and they had to go in and take it back. But oh, they gave me a free ticket to go play in the “billion” dollar tournament, so IF I finish high enough I might win some of the chips they stole from me back. I think the scam is if you are someone grinding it out and earning chips without ever paying for them they are eventually going to screw you over and take your winnings, since the goal is to make spend money to buy even play chips so you can play.
Research
by 1 dogbitbilly on 2019/03/17 11:26
I’m researching the online poker little different than playing live people looking for a place to deposit and play for real money I’ve played a good bit in my life never on the internet I figured out how to read by the way other players bet not having the Beni fit of reading body language i miss that and I know poker stars has the option to make a deposit but I will be careful of who I’m going to trust. I have to agree with the majority I’ve never had so many bad beats flushes etc, it certainly seems as if there are many bots on board I’m losing constantly with hands that will win 85 percent of the time three of a kind full House I mean really if you’ve ever played real poker you know that many bad beats js unrealistic seems when I do win it’s always a split pot. I don’t play with emotions I figure my outs calculate my odds I’m good with numbers and pretty much this defies all odds man so I guess the search for reputable online poker continues on and you made number ten on one the online review sites that I find credible it give the indication one should be careful I know I don’t understand how anyone could play on this fake money site and say yes this is where I wanna place a bet with my real money I feel I can trust this . One born every minute people just don’t do their own research I guess
Lol
by Ez blaze on 2018/12/21 06:33
The absolute BEST layout for tournaments. Has the most real feel to it. I absolutely love the design and gameplay, BUT with that being said it is the biggest scam out there. They want you to buy chips and that’s all it’s about. Not surprising because that’s just the way it is anymore. Every time I grind hard, and build up a nice bankroll, it only gets destroyed by absolutely TERRIBLE suckouts, and hands they set up that you just absolutely can’t fold. You will re-raise pre flop with AK suited and some donkey will call with 7-3 offsuit. The flop will be something like A-3-K and you’ll C-bet raise, get re-raised, go all in and the turn and river will be runner runner 3’s. DO NOT buy fake money play chips from these people. It’s not even practice because you’re learning the game the WRONG way. They reward the terrible players time and time again. This isn’t coming from some paranoid weirdo, I have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours playing Online Poker and gave this app more than enough chances. Just trust me. If I could give this app review a zero I really would. Without a doubt the absolute worst rigged Poker site there is. Can’t wait until an honest Poker site comes out where people can actually develop their skill set and practice. Meanwhile, I’ll keep wasting my time.
Two minor issues.
by Itabei on 2018/04/06 15:06
I like this app, but there are two fixes that would make it more enjoyable. The checkboxes, that are available to let players speed up the game by recording your intended move, change depending on the betting of other players. On more than one occasion I've gone all-in, when a box that said, "check," changed as I was clicking it. If the player before you goes all-in, the checkbox changes to call. The second thing is the sound the app makes if you are the first to bet, fold, or check a new hand. Specifically, if you are the first player after the big blind. The chirp is the same as the one used if you haven't made up your mind and are warned you only have eight seconds to bet or fold. That chirp is annoying. I know I have to play. The alarm isn't necessary, or helpful. The other sounds in this app are fine, so I don't want to just mute my iPad.
Impossible becomes possible
by denniston30 on 2020/04/25 01:20
The cards are random but sure seems to benefit worse hands and really bad calls. Also today was the second time I played a tournament and registered for a 5 million tourney. Then the app keeps kicking me off.. when I do get to play, my money is gone but I’m not registered in any tournaments. This has cost countless chips, 10 million alone in 5 million dash, not to mention I get on there to play with friends and family but ends up robbing you and you don’t play. They don’t reimburse you... they expect you to pay more money. Really disappointing that this keeps happening. If I don’t get reimbursed I will have to drop another review and continue to whine til I delete the app. I won’t pay money to this app until everything is squared up. Bad app, bad customer service... really no customer service. If you put money in your account it will get taken from you by horrible beats. I got knocked out by three people all with qj I had aces. They all 3 hit two pair on the flop... seriously.. ridiculous
Best App, To Practice Poker, But Be Mindful It’s For Play Money!
by seandon375 on 2021/02/24 13:45
In my opinion this is the best app to play Poker and practice your game and have fun at the same time. You have to be mindful though not everyone is going to be playing as serious if it was for actual cash now. Seeing that we’re playing with “play money” nobody real let feels the actual pressure you would feel if it was your own cash. You will come across a lot of goof balls who will call a big raise with anything in there hand, also you’ll come across a few idjits who will go all in all the time. For the most part though, this is a great site/app, you have cash games, tournaments, zoom tables, etc... If you’re gonna play poker definitely consider PokerStars your first and only option!
Rip off?
by 453289765432 on 2021/04/08 21:58
Twice in a row I registered for the same million chip buy in tournament and both times as soon as I registered I got kicked out of the app. Every time I tried to login the app crashed. Eventually I got back in and registered again and boom same thing kicked and crashes. When I was able to login the second time I did not register and instead checked the player list and sure enough I was listed as “finished” for 2 buy ins without playing a single hand. The app waited til I blinded out before allowing me to log back in. Now I did not use only free chips here, I purchased a chip pack so the value of the chips that were taken from me is $10. You get a million chips for $4.99 in their store. Not a lot but you can see it can add up fast. Might be an easy fix but there is no feature to contact support in the app so I am just screwed. Use caution if you start using this app. Stick to the free chips so when they start taking them you won’t be out any real money.
Don’t Listen to Salty Reviews
by DrackerDesign on 2021/02/07 02:17
I’ve played a lot of poker for going on 20 years. There are a lot of reviews lamenting over what people think are swayed odds. It’s not true. I’ve played a couple thousand hands already and I can confidently say the rate of good hands, bad hands, strings of 15-30 bad hands and runs of great hands is very much consistent with what one might expect playing in-person poker. I’ve tried every major hold ‘em app in the App Store. This is hands down the fairest and most pleasant to use. No overbearing ads like WSOP bombards you with, no action forcing, no perceivable scale-balancing. Just poker, straight-up, and that’s what I’ve been looking for. Great job, PokerStars. I can’t wait till you’re legal in NY again.
Changes in free poker
by Caseytori on 2019/08/09 23:15
Once you fold your hand you could no longer see what card you were holding which is disappointing and the fact that you can’t tell how much money someone has when they sit out for an extended amount of time. Sometimes people will sit out in entire game and you have no idea how long it will take to get them out. Previously both of these things showed when you were playing the game and they have been taken away. Also, no longer do they respond when you send a comment
Why restart just to get sound?
by Pramod7130 on 2019/09/19 19:39
I use almost latest iPad. When I stop playing for few hours, it correctly asks me to relogin and at that time, audio does not work. Occasionally it won’t ask me to relogin but shows zero for my chip count. I have a very strong opinion and feeling that they use robots and favor them by runner runner so that I keep buying play money chips. These robots say random stuff like have fun, can’t call for that much etc., and they chat very fast. When I try to chat, the chat window disappears and forces me to play. Make chat window more user friendly so that I can time little bit and switch to play mode, chat mode automatically based on my turn to play or not....a suggestion.
Site Great, App Not Great.
by Vituperat on 2020/02/07 05:50
I’ll go ahead and start by saying I don’t normally review apps, but I’ve played Pokerstars for a few years now and I have to say it’s the best site I’ve found for one of the activities I love, playing poker (and other casino games) with strangers. However, and it may just be me, but I cannot get this app to keep a solid connection for as much as a full hand as of now on the iPad app. I tried on 3 different internet connections and I live in a city so I don’t think it’s me. It would occasionally be fine for a hand or 2, but became a frustrating challenge when the game would freeze without showing me the next card, and then jump for me to need to act very quickly in order to get a bet out or call before my hand was folded automatically. Not a great experience so far.
Always lets bad players win!
by Bstump0313 on 2017/10/20 18:47
I used to love poker stars until they made it where you can’t play with real money anymore. Now I have to play with fake money and it will always let the worst players in history win over and over again. Also no one plays like they would in a real cash game. At least try to make it filter some how to not always let the bingo playing idiots win! I probably am going to quit playing for a while due to that. You’ll go 10 or more hands and not get nothing and the bad players get good hands over and over. You finally get a good hand pre flop and will call one of the bingo players and they’ll end up winning with a pair of 2s. Or you have a pair and go all in and other player have a pair of 2s and call it and they’ll get another pair and win. Makes the really bad players think they are actually good and they are not.

RIGGED: GOOGLE IT!
by ddd_texas on 2018/09/29 02:26
Find a game that doesn’t sell chips. This game is set up to make you lose when you start accumulating a big chip bank so you will have to buy more. I’ve wasted a lot of time (and money) learning this. You will get a lot more bad beats than EVER occur in real poker with a physical deck. Go all in every hand for an hour and you’ll see. Ask yourself “why don’t they give bonus chips for bad beats?” Before you think I am a bad player, in real live poker I have placed 10th for the year in a local poker league with over 500 members. I have won $1800 for finishing 5th in a charity poker tournament of over 100 players. I recently won $300 (split $3300) for finishing 11th in a tournament with 154 players. I am almost always at a final table. Joker Stars will probably reply to this review with a bot saying they aren’t rigged. BUT THEY ARE BECAUSE THEY WANT YOUR MONEY!
Welcome to Jokerstars...
by YRU2NVS on 2019/07/13 21:50
I have been playing both live poker, and online poker, for quite some time now. And just so there is no debate in my skill set, I played in the main event last year when I won a ticket through a charitable poker event. So, this is what I know: if you are behind a big stack call on jokerstars, you have a .032% survival rating. Do you see the problem? This is a program defined for a decomposing tournament structure. The reason is because IT IS A COMPUTER GENERATION. It was designed to narrow the field, so that the time involved for the software is minimized through the game play. When this us achieved, RANDOMNESS is NOT a FACTOR. THAT being said, I ONLY use this program to see more hands. NOT how they play out, because the odds are BS. EVEN the auto shuffle device on tables in the WSOP circuit would AGREE...
Bad Update
by Rocco1408 on 2019/12/07 15:56
I’m not a fan of this newest update. I hate the single chip, read how much it’s worth graphic. I really liked the far more realistic looking multiple chips for bets. This gives a cheap, cheesy look. I don’t like that you can no longer stay and watch a hand play out one you’ve folded. I enjoyed seeing what may have happened had I stayed in the hand. It also helps to gather information on other players and how they play (you know, just like in real life games). Taking that option away really detracts from the game. I don’t like the new sound effects when cards are dealt. Overall, just a pretty substantial step backwards with this update. I feel like I’ve gone from playing on a quality site to a cheap starter site.
Boring design, ugly avatars
by sassy arse on 2019/04/02 23:36
Guys, you make millions and can’t do a decent design? Seriously? Animation is a primitive school level. Learn from the Chinese. Check PokerMate or PokerKing. Whatever! Any app is better designed than yours! And your avatars - whose idea was to put all these ugly drawn cartoon faces? Picture of my grandma is better than this! Why don’t you give a possibility to upload my own pic? The app shows zero chips when I know for sure there are chips on the account. I had to close the app and re-login to see my chips back. To be honest, I’m extremely disappointed in your designers. It’s sooo 1980s level. Just hurts my eyes. If not 6+ Hold’em I wouldn’t even bother to open the app again. I am quite happy apple suggested this “lite” version. I can’t imagine playing real money on such awfully designed platform.
Painful interface, otherwise good
by MorganStair on 2020/11/09 20:33
If you want a “play money” poker app, AND you want to learn the “poker stars” interface for poker, AND play multiple tables at once, AND you want to practice on full ring /6+ tables, then this is the app you want. But if you don’t want all those things then use something else because this app is really painful, boring, and slow compared to others. It’s so bad, I find that if I don’t take breaks, I get bored and start losing. I’m not talking “tilt” here, I’m talking frustration at how much time each player is allowed to sit there doing nothing when it’s their turn to bet. I’m giving this 3 stars because of these pros: (1) it’s legitimate poker that doesn’t cheapen the experience with lots of free chips, etc., and (2) I’m sure the “boring, slow, and clunky” isn’t a factor if you play several tables at once. I’m not giving 5 stars because they need to (1) add a “fast play” option, (2) improve the general quality of the user interface, and (3) add some social features to make single-table play a bit more interesting.
Better than the WSOP App
by Rich364 on 2020/04/06 11:31
My review of “PokerStars Lite” to help others who are trying to find an App to play Texas Hold’em... this is the one to play. I was concerned by it being the “Lite” version, but have learned of no negatives. I was so frustrated while playing the “WSOP” App... the pop-up advertising was constantly intrusive and appeared non-stop, even during critical game play moments. This is not an issue with “PokerStars Lite” I can’t say if the cards dealt are truly random or not... but it does feel like you (and other players) each share in hot/cold streaks. I don’t play the App with real money, so I’m not concerned. For me, it’s been a joy to play against real players while in coronavirus isolation. And if you find yourself playing against a player who goes all-in every time before the flop... just leave and play at a different table (if that’s not your favorite type of player to play against). Again, I highly recommend this App.
Pretty good poker, 2 minor issues
by USSpaceCowBoy on 2018/01/16 22:12
Pretty good poker, only two minor issues. I'm not a millennial, so I have patience and prefer a game tempo that's not on the beat (game pace) of speed-metal. For all of you that are metaphorically challenged, Zoom, plays at hypersonic speeds (fast paced), and even the straight play-cash games are quick. But, patience is a dying virtue. Second issue, and the programmers can't control it, many players play under the philosophy of chaos, no manners: All in, after all in, nearly every hand. Smash play, not poker. Please, Play with some class, have some self respect, maybe even, is it too much to ask, a modicum of dignity?
Dropping
by !dutch on 2018/06/29 16:38
I play PokerStars on my home computer, my laptop, my smartphone and iPad. In the last few months every time I play on my phone and iPad I get dropped in the middle of hand. It happens multiple times a session and happens at home and at various hotel locations so it’s not the internet connection. Honestly if I had not built up a lot of chips over the last few years I would delete the app from all my devices.
Setup hands
by TBgO@T12!11#87 on 2020/08/07 14:08
I have been playing with this site for a while now and initially it was to play home games with friends during quarantine, which worked out really well. The issue arises when you play on your own, I play strictly cash games and the last month it has been the same thing, cooler after cooler hands, not the normal amount, it’s almost statistically impossible for it to happen as much as it does. I constantly find myself in hands that when finished it almost feels like you are being setup. Being one outed 3-4 times in few days time, constant set over set and flush over flush. I am really considering having myself and friends look into another site for our home games because of the frustration level I am at at this point.
Like all other app...".not very realistic
by Billy Sage on 2019/09/22 02:44
To many good hands get beat by a better hand. Example: 3 of kind gets beat by straight or straight gets beat by flush. Happens constantly. Can see it happening some but it happens so often it makes it not fun. Getting beat on the river happens constantly also. Last 5 tournaments I went out by losing on the river. It's ridiculous Again sometimes but shouldn't be as often as it does . Going all in with a good hand and then get beat by someone who has something like 9-3 or jack-8 really stinks but it happens pretty often. This app is pretty much like the others I have tried. Guess I will keep searching for one that is realistic
Game is good but customer service won’t get back to you
by Opie2hot on 2020/10/11 17:37
I had really enjoyed this game until recently when I purchased chips and got charged but no chips arrived in my account. I had sent emails to customer service who initially asked me for screen shots in which I shared. Email stated that the situation would be resolved soon and to look for an email. Two weeks later and multiple emails asking the status, I haven’t heard a word. At this point it is the principle of the point. Buyer be aware that if you don’t get the chips you paid for that the customer service will leave you hanging. Sad!
Gambling problem message?
by Delrio-12its me on 2020/04/01 03:15
I keep getting a message about getting help for my gambling addiction. This is for play money? I have been playing for 7-8 years for fun. Now retired and in a 19 foot travel trailer with Covid 19 running ramped out side, I alternate between big10 football reruns, back episodes of Monk (the detective) re-runs and pokerstars. And I play poker for free, I don’t think I have a gambling problem. Only too much time in the trailer with the wife and cat. Please get rid of ad for help for my “addiction”. Wife is asking if there is an ad for football addiction? Please advise. Sincerely. Delrio 12
Latest version slow to load
by bikediver99 on 2018/09/28 15:11
This is a great app. I play a couple of sit and go games every day. Other reviewers complain that they have to buy chips only to loose then to people who play badly but get lucky. A good player can deal with opponents like that. I’ve amassed over 50 million chips and never bought any. Now, I just wish the app did not require a sign on every time. Let me stay logged in until I log out. Developer responds to reviewers so let them know how to improve the app. Bikediver
Best poker software out there
by Kelron on 2019/04/03 16:48
I didn’t start playing poker till just before the DOJ shut online games down several years ago. I have tried many different companies. PokerStars stands out in both their mobile and desktop software. You can be a hobbyist or get serious about the game. The software enables you to catalog players according to their skill level, or their hands of choice. It’s up to you.
Challenging and fun!
by siebenzuhaus on 2019/05/31 14:51
Although I only use play money while enjoying the wide variety of games, the administration always responds to my inquiries courteously and in a timely fashion. The website works nicely and quickly addresses minor glitches. . . . I love playing zoom which helps to keep my mind sharp while providing exciting and challenging entertainment. My play money bank is well over 3 million!
Good Tournaments, Awful Buy-In Games
by Pocketvideographer on 2019/11/06 09:28
The tournament structures are good, the action seems fair, and so far I’ve had fun playing in tournaments (inclusive of the sit & go options). The so-called cash games are awful. I make no observations on the randomness of cards being dealt. I will only say that my experience is that if you’re ahead on the flop you’ll likely to be behind by the river. Bottom line: if you like playing in tournament and sit & go structures, this is a good app. However, if you prefer the buy-in format, I would advise you look elsewhere.
Besides being rigged so the worst players win...
by InvictusRose on 2019/02/08 17:25
the game makes you pick your desired seat before each game, instead of allowing you to choose your preferred seat just once in Preferences. The game layout is made for lefties. All the controls are on the bottom left, forcing a righty to cover the dialogue box and, if your hand hovers over the controls, you’ll soon find yourself accidentally calling some donks crazy all in bet. Controls placement should be in Preferences or, simpler still, allow a player to drag them on the screen wherever they feel most comfortable.
App shuts you Down from time to time
by rant g on 2020/12/22 19:50
Numerous emails and I talked to reps what happens is this a few times a week I go to play on POKERSTARS PA App from the App Store and I buy into Tournament’s and or cash Games and The Table only shows A-Quarter of the Screen and it won’t let you Bet Call or fold Even when Logging out and Turning Phone Off iT still Does it when Logging on while I asked for my money back no response also What about all the times IT does this and lost OPPORTUNITIES To win like AA Or KK just folding and eating away with the Blinds spent a few Hundred but now only spots betting is safe well Fox runs that. Anyway Just warning you it’s not software it’s there SERVER
Poor support
by fmk1221 on 2020/01/27 19:31
I have been with Poker Stars Lite forever. Since I live in Florida I cannot play with real money, but have been able to buy chips tp play with. Now I cannot buy chips. There is no answer when I contact support. Poker stars adds chips after so many hours and I was building up to play in a tournament and the chips disappeared. Can someone please explain!!!!
Issues with site
by Trixx2020 on 2021/02/16 14:52
No one will respond back to you. Several times while I was winning on slots, site started having issues. The latest was while I was playing and winning, a message popped up stating they can verify my location in Michigan. My phone and my PC is up to date and everything is on. I consistently email them and I get zero response from their none existing support team. The chat doesn’t even work! Seem a little odd but I guess my next step is the Michigan gaming board and file a complaint. I even sent poker stars a screen shot and still no response. I feel like I’m being ripped off!
This Site Has A Lot Of Immature People On It
by anon4337 on 2019/11/05 00:34
There are a lot immature people on this site that don’t know the first thing about how to play live poker. If they did, they wouldn’t be hounding you to act in less than 5 seconds. I don’t talk on these message boards, but some of these players are just ridiculous jerks. On top of that, I just want to play on here for fun; I play for money at legit places. And I think I am going to just disengage my account as I’m sick of the stupidity. They should have a website for legit adults to play on and then another one for kids 25 and younger to play on that have no life or social skill sets.
Not enough variety
by cyberchomp on 2020/08/21 04:47
I am an admin for a rotating series of home games on PS. You would think that the roster of draw, flop and board poker games found on the desktop client would be available on the mobile app. They aren’t. Glad that the mobile app supports our home games, but it does not support draw poker. The lack of that type of game hurts our attendance whenever we schedule draw tourneys and mixed game tourneys where draw poker is a feature. Regarding this app, “Lite” is truly light. Stars, you can do better than this.
All these apps are the same
by Big thunder 1 on 2020/07/14 05:51
These apps are all the same. If you don’t pay them a dollar they’ll give you the short end of the stick. They can quote whatever numbers they want about how it’s fair, and it might be mathematically correct. But winning a small pot and then losing a monster, that that anyone who plays cards would call, is not fair. I try to make these amazing players that make gutsy calls try to talk and they don’t say a word. Maybe because they can’t?No difference in any of these apps. If you want to play cards, grab some friends and shuffle up and deal. Don't bother with any of these apps.
Hardly worth the time
by Timr25 on 2018/04/02 03:24
Don’t think this is a poker site. It isn’t. The play chip mentality makes it a lotto site not worth your time. They offer deals if you buy chips and create an atmosphere of stupid play because there is not a risk of losing real money. The odds are so jacked in favor of calling thru the river, a 5 2 off suit will prevail a stupid amount of the time. Quads beating full houses are frequent enough as to be outright stupid. An river callers are way too frequently rewarded. And it’s likely the site runs bots to generate betting to pull some of the worst beats you’ll ever see. Then offer you deals to get premiums if you’ll buy chips. Stay way.
Please respond
by vicky Flores 77 on 2020/06/24 23:11
I was playing on my old computer but it doesn’t work any more. I want to download my account to my IPad but not too sure which one to select. I had been playing since we could play w real money and I noticed you have a selection that says real money. Is it okay to play w real money if you live in California? I love this web site
Best free play poker around
by Grizzers21 on 2019/12/28 19:59
This is by far the best “play money” poker app (even compared to websites too) that you can play. Large variety of games and it’s a lot more like real poker than the other apps where people will shove with trash because they can. Always lots of people on so there’s basically no wait times for sit and go’s and such. Great for practice or fun!
Deleting app and from computer
by pddavis13 on 2020/09/15 20:57
After viewing/experiencing yet more unbelievable suckouts, I have reached my limit. A miracle draw once in a while would be acceptable but these happen every time I play, and these days I only play for an hour every other day. The ultimate: watched an idiot call a preflop raise with 63o. Flopped a 3 then caught the one-outer on the river (I held the case 3) to beat the preflop raiser holding QQ who went all in on the seemingly safe flop. That does not even make sense, and is not realistic. Again, this happens far too often to be random. Not worth the time anymore to play only to end up frustrated.
Not Real Poker
by Easy Chair Explorer on 2019/02/19 22:12
I’ve played at numerous sites and this is the worst as far as dealing predictable and corrupt hands. The winning hand is almost always dealt on the River Card and the Robo house player wins with a less than stellar hand normally a player has 3 of a kind and a flush or straight is dealt usually unheard of in Real poker rooms but quite normal here. After <5 minutes of playing here the joy of playing rapidly dissipates. Try using a random number generator or some other method for dealing cards and you may start seeing positive reviews instead of attracting the idiot all in non players which absolutely ruin the game.
Be aware this is not fair
by zynga'd on 2020/12/09 01:11
When I joined first i was winning all the time. Now I can’t win anything, the people hit their magic card on the river all the time. It’s just like other games, want to get you to buy chips. I know you will respond with our game has been certified for fair play but that is bogus. Hope this prevents other people from joining or at least be aware. People will get wise eventually. Play for fun but just know they have it set up to where you will have to pay or make it hard on you without. It’s an app with no ads, how do they make money?
N
by Nadmoorv on 2018/11/02 20:21
Pretty good not perfect. I play a lot for free, never bought chips. I've managed to increase from playing very low level games to 100,000 and occasional 500,000 games. I do seem to run in streaks where I double my total chips to lose half my chips. I assume that is the game, but occasionally wonder if the computer is involved.
Shady
by dorito dan on 2021/03/03 03:23
Seems awfully shady when someone writes an honest review about their experience w trying to cash out their winnings and waiting several hours to get it resolved after contacting them but still no resolution as the player decided to continue playing and lost all the winnings. Finally a response (here, no personal contact) states that IF THEY REWRITE THEIR REVIEW, they can maybe get free chips to try and play other games! SAVE YOUR MONEY AND RUN FAR FROM HERE!!! I’ll be spending mine elsewhere; Thankyou to people who give honest reviews and shame on developers who don’t take responsibility - NO STARS from me
Somethings very wrong
by papazman on 2020/05/03 16:03
Website is not working now. Can log in but cannot play many of the games. Buy in is also messed up. The pop up for responsible gaming is annoying and difficult to close. It acts like a virus. Please get rid of this pop up. I don’t need to be reminded if responsible gaming EVERY time I log in. It’s play money.
Freezing
by marys beach inn on 2020/04/05 23:03
I found out the freezing is caused by slow internet. When mine starts freezing I unplug my modem and plug it back in and no more freezing for awhile. After awhile it slows down again and I repeat the above. How can you say this app is play money and then fill it with cash games! False advertising!
Better than WSOP
by dfherut91 on 2019/02/19 03:58
I use to think that the WSOP app was the best but this is far better except for visuals which I understand is currently in a beta phase so that should become a non issue. I love all the options and tournaments and different levels of play available that truly make this stand out from the rest.
2 years and counting waiting for customer support!
by EATTHATMUNKEY on 2019/08/26 04:46
Even if play money poker is all you wish to do- this app doesn’t deserve your time. I’ve been trying to purchase play chips for two years on ad off as I replenish my free supply of 15k free chips every 3 hours or so... the charged my account for the $4.99 play chips pack I wanted - but it’s been 2 years and I haven’t received them. Whenever I sign in, I get a message that my purchase has been processed- they’re having issues distributing them to my account. This app is a joke.
