PokerStars might already be an industry leader when it comes to playing online poker, but the decision to offer casino games and real-money sports betting on their main site in 2014 was a move that has certainly paid off. Since then, the site has launched a hugely successful mobile casino app which allows you to play a whole host of casino favourites from your mobile device. Here is everything you need to know.
Certified by Gaming Labs, which is licensed and regulated by the U.K. Gaming Commission and is also a member of the Interactive Gaming Council, it is clear right off the bat that the new app from PokerStars Casino is fully legit and a safe place to indulge in casino games. PokerStars itself is the world’s largest online gaming company and is used by over 100 million players worldwide, which goes to show that it has a trusted reputation within the gaming community. This is definitely something worth knowing as the app allows players to use real money in their free-to-play casino game.
With the option of playing eight multiplayer blackjack and double-ball roulette, PokerStars has certainly covered the bases on offering mobile versions of their most popular online games. Slots fans won’t feel left out either as they have a choice over of 30 games such as the exclusive million-dollar slot game Millionaire’s Island, which recently paid out over $1.5 million to a university student from Uruguay. Also available on the app is Genie Jackpots, which recently paid a winner a whopping $1.3 million, and Super Diamond Deluxe, which paid out $282,050.02 to a player from Germany.
Fully compatible with all iOS, Android and Windows devices, the app performs super smoothly across the board. Once downloaded, you will need to create a login to give you full access to the games on offer. This also entitles you to a 200% match bonus on your first deposit; not a bad incentive for first-time players. After making your first deposit, you need to enter the bonus code CASINO and PokerStars will match your deposit up to $400. We must say, this is a great way to ensure that all players are treated equally, regardless of their deposit.
Simply add funds to your game by tapping the casino chip icon in the top right of your screen. This will take you to a cashier page where you can select your preferred payment method to make a deposit.
The top of the screen will display the three main options for the app — Poker, Casino and Sportsbook. One of the great attributes of this app is that unlike similar available apps you do not need to create a wholly new account for each of the options. This makes for a great feature as it streamlines your transitions between games and allows for a much smoother playing experience.
When it comes to banking, it soon becomes clear that only some of the usual methods are available on the app, with most of them being desktop exclusive. The app makes up for this by offering alternatives such as phone banking, which is super handy for those moments when you have no other payment method available. Players can access live, chat support from within the app if they run into difficulties, too; a service that appears to be efficient, useful and fast.
One of the major benefits of the PokerStars Casino app is the ability to play in a live casino on your mobile, which is a feature that is not readily available on many other casino apps. Just make sure you have enough of a bankroll in your account to play.
Ultimately, the PokerStars Casino app is certainly worth the download. With its appealing array of live-action casino games, generous match bonuses on the first deposit and real-money options, it really delivers a smooth online experience directly to your mobile. So far, the app has enjoyed immense success since its release, too, leading PokerStars to develop the PokerStars TV app, which allows you to catch up on the latest videos from the world of poker, the PokerStars Clock app, which makes playing poker at home fun and easy and the Poker Play Along app, which allows you to play along with live games.
