Software

PokerStars’ Casino suite is powered by some big name providers including Net Entertainment, Amaya Software, Evolution Gaming, IGT, iSoftBet, Microgaming and Red Tiger Gaming to name a few. As a result, there is a good choice of games but the choice is not as exhaustive as on some of their competitors. However, they are still new to the marketplace so that could change in the near future.


Games

While not as extensive as some top casino websites, the choice of games at PoketStars is still huge and should satisfy the needs of most gamers. Unsurprisingly, the choice of video poker games is strong and there are more than 60 other casino games available plus scratch cards and bingo-themed titles.


Slots

PokerStars casino offers a large number of slots including popular titles such as Startburst, Age of Gods, Genie Jackpots, Great Blue and Mega Moolah. With nearly 200 titles available including many with progressive jackpots and with new games being added all the time, there should be something to keep even the most discerning players interested.


Table Games

Compared to the slots, the range of table games is slightly less impressive with just over 20 titles available covering poker, blackjack, baccarat and roulette. This selection also includes a small selection of live casino games. Minimum stakes are $0.10 while those looking to place larger stakes or take part in multi-player games are also well-catered for.


Live Casino

Players looking for a more human touch can choose one of the live dealer options. At present, there are eight live dealer games available including four poker games, dream catcher, baccarat, roulette and blackjack. All the live games are located in the same section of the website for easy access.


Mobile

For those looking to play on the move, the PokerStars app can be downloaded on Android, iOS and Windows devices. The download process is straightforward and the app is fully-featured meaning you get the same great experience on a mobile device as you would get on your PC. With top quality software and security, the PokerStars app scores very highly across the board.
