Poker Stars Room Review
Before I was told that I had to do this review, I had never heard of this poker client. I went on their website and I was surprised to see how nice it was. I thought it would just be some no name, sloppy site, but I was totally mistaken. The site is very neat and has a nice design, but more than just that, there are some great features to it. There are constant news updates on the site that informs you of the different tournaments, promotions, and events that are going on in the poker world. It also has a nice section on the integrity of the site and client so you feel more secure about playing on it. Not only was the site very appealing, but the whole process of downloading the client and the client itself is very good.
The download process was very quick and simple just like all the other clients, but this one gave instructions on the different download options for Netscape and internet explorer. As soon as the download is complete, you can start the install the process which is also easy. Once the program is installed, you can start playing.
Before you can actually start playing you need to sign up for an account first. The fields that are required are similar to all the other poker rooms, and if you are only interested in playing for play money then you only need an email address, name, username, and password to start. If you are looking to play for real money (which I recommend), then there are more field to fill out and there is not cash bonus like the ones that I found in some of the other rooms. This is made up to you though by the player points that you receive for your amount of playing time on the client. These points can be used for special rewards that are offered on the client.
When you open the poker client there will be pop-ups of any current promotions or events that poker stars is having. After you are finish with the pop-ups you get your first glance of the actual client. There is a huge variety of different games to play, from holdem, to stud, to tournaments, to even the WPT or EPT. I found this part of the client to be one of its best features because it didn’t concentrate just on the sole game of Holdem. A lot of player out there now aren’t learning the other games, and hopefully this poker client will make you more comfortable around the other games so that you can play them at your local casino or home game.
The other feature that I liked was the fact that there was variety in the stakes, and number of players in the rooms. This feature was in a lot of the other poker clients, but this client really made it for you to sort through the large amount of rooms it had so you could pin-point the kind of room you really wanted to play in. Once you found that room you wanted to play in, there were no connection losses or delays that I suffered because of network or server errors. It is nice to see that you can just sit down and enjoy the game of poker in your home without having to worry about any sort of server errors on the poker client’s behalf.
Overall, I believe that this poker client might be one of the best, if not the best, poker client that I have reviewed so far. The amount of unique and beneficial features that they offer is really amazing, and the room should definitely keep your interest. If you are looking to play for real money I would certainly advise you to at least check this poker client out and give it try, because I can almost guarantee you that you will like it. Even if you are just wanting to play for fun and fake money, I would recommend this site because allow it doesn’t have some of the play money features that some other rooms had, it is still incredibly nice to play in. Hopefully you found this review to be helpful and I hope that you enjoy playing on this room.
