PokerStars

Poker fans out there will certainly be familiar with PokerStars already, being the world’s largest online poker room. PokerStars Casino is their sister site, offering PokerStars and online casino fans alike the chance to enjoy a range of online games. It’s been operating since 2016, with over 300 slot games alongside a selection of table games and live casino choices.

In terms of looks, you’d be forgiven for mistaking PokerStars Casino with the PokerStars main site as the styling is identical. A simple black and white layout gives a clean, simple feel to the casino where the main difference in the design is the replacement of the ace logo with dice.

PokerStars Casino bonus

The welcome bonus at PokerStars Casino kicks off with a welcome bonus accompanied by a free spins prize. The free spins will only be revealed once you’ve made the first deposit but you could net up to 1000 spins. You might find that the site refers to $ rather than £ but no need to worry, they are interchangeable.

  • 1st deposit: 100% match bonus up to £500 and up to 1000 spins
  • 2nd deposit: 25% match bonus up to £250
  • 3rd deposit: 25% match bonus up to £250

Free spins can be played on either Millionaires Island or Stars Mega Spin.

PokerStars Casino bonus code

You will need to take note of these bonus codes to take advantage of the welcome package on offer. With your first deposit, WELCOME1 will unlock your bonus, with WELCOME2 and WELCOME3 for the second and third reload bonuses.

Wagering requirement

PokerStars Casino have their own wagering process, which might be a little confusing to new players.

Players will need to earn 3 ‘Redemption Points’ for every £1 of bonus cash within 28 days of receiving the bonus to be able to withdraw it as real cash. The amount of money you need to wager to receive these redemption points varies by game so you’ll need to spend some time examining their rewards points page to make sense of what you need to wager in order to receive any cash.

PokerStars Free Spins

You won’t know how many free spins you’ll receive as a new player at PokerStars Casino until you’ve made that first deposit and received your ‘Mystery Chest’, which can contain free spins.

PokerStars Casino review

While we can appreciate a simple, uncomplicated design there are elements of PokerStars’ styling which are a little dated, like some of the buttons and fonts. However, this doesn’t detract from the usability of the site, which is very straightforward. You’re most likely to be using PokerStars Casino because you’re also a poker or table game fan looking for a little diversity. You’ll find it among the 337 slot games on offer, which present a welcome break for a relaxing spin of the reels.

There’s 24/7 customer support available at PokerStars Casino via email, offering help at any time. There is also a wide range of payment methods to choose from here, making the casino easily accessible to all UK players. We were also pleased to see that there are daily promotions available, including a Daily Slots Puzzle and a Blackjack Card Hunt. If you’re a poker fan who want to spread their wings and get into other casino games, this is the perfect casino for you.

Casino promotions & offers

Beyond the welcome and reload bonuses, there are two daily promotions and a rewards programme to check out at PokerStars Casino. For slot fans, the Daily Slots Puzzle requires you to complete four tasks for the chance to win up to £10,000.

The second daily promotion is the Blackjack Card Hunt where you’ll play a sort of card bingo until you’ve completed your puzzle board, when you’ll receive a cash reward of up to £2000. Finally, Stars Rewards is PokerStars Casino’s reward programme, where you collect points as you play which can be exchanged for free spins.

Casino Games & Slots

We counted a total of 337 slot games available at PokerStars Casino, close to 100 of which have linked jackpots or are progressive jackpot games which you can filter for from the bar at the top of the games panel. Of the big progressives, you’ll find Mega Moolah, Mega Fortune and Divine Fortune. Unfortunately, the only other filtering options here are for ‘Vegas Slots’ and ‘New’ but if you’re looking for a specific game you’ll be able to find it using the search bar. Unsurprisingly, you’ll also find a good range of table games, live casino and video poker options here.

Withdrawal processing times are the standard 24 hours although as usual, this will take longer for some payment methods such as VISA and MasterCard.

Customer Service

While there is customer support available 247 at PokerStars Casino, we were disappointed to find that this is only available via their contact form so they are a little behind the times in not offering a live chat service.

PokerStars Casino mobile

Hundreds of PokerStars’ slot games are also available to play via mobile, for which there is no requirement to install their app.

PokerStars Casino app

PokerStars Casino has a specific app for UK players which you’ll find under ‘PokerStars Casino UK: Slots, Roulette & Blackjack’. This is available via iphone and Android although the ratings are a little low so if you experience difficulties you may prefer to play through your browser instead.
