common features

PokerStars has a very sleek looking lobby, where navigation is easy. The cash register also looks great, and displays information such as bonus information (FPP, Frequent Player Points), real money and play money information. The size of your screen can be changed at will.


The software is absolute top quality. In case of technical problems, you will be notified at the table you're playing. PokerStars has a very interesting bonus program where you collect Frequent Player Points, which you can then use to buy things in their webshop, or use as entrance fee for tournaments.


PokerStars organizes a lot of tournaments, with big prizes that are guaranteed. For instance every Sunday there's a tournament called the Sunday Million, with 1.5 million dollars in prize money.
