Cashouts and Bonuses
Poker Stars is very quick about cash-outs. Most cash-outs are done within 24 or 48 hours. Poker Stars does not have a deposit bonus, though they often have reload bonuses. These bonuses are generally 20 percent up to a 120 dollars, and occur about once every month or so.
Ease of Competition
This is one thing I do not like about Poker Stars. The games are generally tough mid-stakes and higher. However, their lower stakes games are much more easily beatable. This poker room offers advantages for newer players looking to improve skills at low-stakes games.
In addition to Poker Stars sending many players to WSOP and WPT tournaments, players have a chance to win seats to many European Poker Tournament events.
Poker Star's only customer service is through email. Having used it a couple of times, I thought they were very helpful. Because their customer service is among the most competent in the industry, they receive a very good score.
Many people really like their software. I think it is very colorful but has way too many sounds. It works ok. But when it comes to the online poker tournaments, the software works a lot better. Click under your info
tab. This will display your standing in the tournament, which is a nice feature to quickly keep tabs of where you stand in the tournament.
