Poker Stars Casino are part of the Stars Interactive Limited group and they are triple licensed by the the Gambling Supervision Commission  in the Isle of Man and in the United Kingdom by the UKGC - they use IBAS as their alternative dispute resolution service - finally they are licensed by the MGA in Malta. They provide a range of games from: Microgaming, NetEntertainment, NYX Gaming, Leander, PlayTech and some proprietary software. They offer sportsbook, poker and casino facilities.  Their site design is stylish but simple and utilises a colour palette of: red, grey, black and white; their logo is their name in white with a red dice set between the two parts of the name - the one dot has been replaced by a white star.

Terms and Conditions

The PokerStars Casino Welcome bonus currently consists of a bonus of 100% up to $500 plus up to 1000 complimentary spins on Millionaire Island.

It should be noted that the number of complimentary spins received in awarded in a lottery style. As the probability of each outcome is published it is possible to assert that the average number of complimentary spins received will be 32.

Players should also be aware that the PokerStars bonus uses a poorly explained wagering requirement system where the wagering requirements are expressed in terms of the number of "redemption points" they player needs to earn and each game earns redemption points at a different rate. We have converted this to a more standard xbonus model based on the player playing the Thunderstruck slots game.

The minimum deposit that will trigger the bonus is $50.

This bonus has a wagering requirement of 32xbonus for the deposit bonus and 24xwinnings for the complimentary spins.

The bonus uses the standard bonus structure with funds being locked from the moment of deposit until all wagering requirements are met and bets with both deposited and bonus funds contributing to the wagering requirement.

There is no maximum bet term associated with this bonus.

There is no maximum allowed win associated with either the bonus or complimentary spins.

The bonus is cashable.

Bonus and associated winnings will expire after 14 days if the wagering requirements are not completed.

Game Weightings:

Poker Stars Casino hold the following gambling licenses :

  • Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission - The IoMGSC are one of the stronger regulatory authorities operating within the online gambling market. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • United Kingdom Gambling Commission - The UKGC are widely considered to be the most reputable regulators involved in the online gambling market. They do not manage complaints for players directly, instead requiring their operators to appoint a UKGC accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution service. As such the value of this license for players depends largely on the professionalism of the ADR service utilised. Poker Stars Casino currently use IBAS. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • Malta Gaming Authority - In our experience the MGA is the best regulatory authority in terms of the management of player complaints. Their complaints team is open and cooperative in the discussion of player issues and we've managed to resolve a number of credible player issues working with the MGA. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
