Poker Stars overview

Poker Stars is one of the classic poker rooms on the Internet and the amounts of players here are tremendous: it’s not unusual that over 200,000 players are online. Poker Stars were established in 2001 and became one of the first sites on the web offering poker for real money. That many loyal players cannot be without reasons.

Poker Stars offers perhaps the biggest game selection to be found on online. On Poker Stars it's possible to play the unusual poker game Badugi. Badugi has its roots in Asia and is a variant of Draw Poker, but each player gets four cards instead of five and the hand ranking is quite surprising. The strongest hands in Badugi include low cards in four different suits.

The site is also host for World Championship of Online Poker and other really big tournament series.

The company is registered on Isle of Man in the north Irish Sea. Card transactions are treated by Rational Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. Random number generation is tested and verified by Cigital.
