This is an online casino with the endorsement of PokerStars, with all that it implies. Expectations are high and so is the demand; but it is clear that being called PokerStars Casino influences users to trust more than other less known casinos or those that invest less in advertising than PokerStars has done in recent years. Let's discover what PokerStars Casino offers us.
Our experience at PokerStars Casino
PokerStars Casino welcomes Philippines with a pretty comfortable and easy-to-use website, in line with what we can find on other websites of the group. Black is the dominant color, although the games give it that complementary touch of color that make it very visual. Through the menus and sections, we can easily navigate from one section to another, and unlike other online casinos, it does not separate slot machines - here under the heading of slot machines - from the rest of the games.
We have slots, roulette, and blackjack, but we also have instant win games and, as it couldn't be otherwise being where we are, poker. All of this, completed with a powerful live casino section. The great amount of exclusive games offered is particularly striking, and not only slot machines. On the other hand, the lack of a demo mode prevents Philippines from trying the games before betting on them.
As expected, the money wagered at the casino serves to accumulate points in Stars Rewards, its VIP program, and we have promotions such as Spin of the Day or slot races that allow Philippines to make the most of this operator. Another common practice in some casinos is to offer races, and at PokerStars Casino we can find them.
Otherwise, it follows the usual lines of the rest of the products of the PokerStars group. For example, we have a good variety of payment methods and a unique mobile application for the casino; but live phone and/or chat support are absent, as they are in PokerStars or PokerStars Sports. Even so, it is a very attractive casino, like practically any other product of PokerStars.
PokerStars Casino offers a good selection of casino games. On one hand, there are slot machines, appearing here as chance machines, and on the other hand, there are card and table games, including roulette and blackjack, many with multiplayer options. Live casino games are also available, and one of the distinctive features of PokerStars Casino is their numerous exclusive games, particularly in slots but also in other games. There is no demo mode, and they offer games from developers such as NetEnt, Playtech, and Evolution Gaming, among others.
We have over 600 slot machines available, a number that more than covers the demands of any player. Best of all, 50 of them are exclusive, only available at PokerStars Casino. There are roulette games with every theme you can imagine, with different paylines, and about 40 of them have a jackpot. Among the most popular are Gonzo's Quest, Torrente, Narcos, or the exclusive La Casa de Papel Deluxe, Diamond Stars and Stars Genie, the latter two with a jackpot.
Undoubtedly, it is the Achilles' heel of PokerStars Casino. There are only three roulette tables: European, American, and High Roller, which is a VIP version of European roulette. We miss the French roulette, although we will highlight the American, not always available, and the VIP roulette. All three are available in individual and multiplayer mode. A meager offer that contrasts with live roulette.
Classic, Micro, Surrender, and American. These are the options for playing blackjack that PokerStars Casino offers, with the first two options available in multiplayer mode. Despite there only being four blackjack rooms, the selection is quite comprehensive as it allows players to try out various game modes.
✅ Live Casino
Unlike the orphan roulette section, the PokerStars Casino live casino section offers an excellent selection: ten live roulette tables, almost all of them with their own croupiers. In addition to conventional roulette, we have the exclusive Spin & Win Roulette, where we can multiply the prize up to 100 times, or the Quantum Roulette with its multipliers. There are also automatic Quantum and Lightining Roulette tables.
Races are one of the most exciting games in any casino. PokerStarsSport includes casino races, both in online casino and in live casino. Each week, it organizes races with cash prizes. Participation is free, but you will have to meet the minimum betting conditions, maximum spins, etc. You can follow the live leaderboard.
✅ Instant prize
We have a dozen exclusive scratch-and-win games waiting for you. Simply scratch and discover the prize. Themed options include Football Frenzy, Stars LineUp and Sticky Fruits, as well as gold, rubies, emeralds and diamonds. Instant prizes with classic casino themes are also available.
Stars Rewards is the VIP program of PokerStars Casino. It is a club where we can earn points as we bet with real money, and once you complete the progress of each level, you will access a chest. Inside, there be free games or StarCoins that you can use in the rewards store, among other gifts. All casino games count towards the Stars Rewards program, although some bets such as low-risk roulette bets are excluded. You can also earn points in poker and sports betting.
We can deposit at PokerStars Casino using bank cards MasterCard, Maestro and VISA, via PayPal, Neosurf, MuchBetter, Rapid Transfer, Skrill, Neteller, local bank transfer, PaySafeCard, Trustly or ecoPayz, in addition to Apple Pay from our Apple mobile devices. To make deposits easier, we can use quick deposit with VISA, MasterCard, MuchBetter, Skrill or Neteller. Each method has its own processing times and limits, and no commissions are applied.
When withdrawing our earnings, we can claim them via VISA, MuchBetter, Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, ecoPayz, bank transfer, and again, Apple Pay from our iPhone or iPad. Once again, we come across different minimum withdrawals depending on the method we choose. The channel used for withdrawal will also be decisive in knowing how long we have to wait to make the withdrawal, although the waiting period is always reasonable.
PokerStars Casino is a completely secure operator. As expected from a casino endorsed by PokerStars, it holds licenses from the AGCO to offer all the casino games available, meeting the most demanding security requirements. PokerStars Casino ensures a safe, reliable and honest gaming experience, with fair play where chance is the only opponent.
Issues such as the need to verify your account before accessing welcome offers only reinforce a safe gaming environment for all users who come to PokerStars Casino. Their website includes stamps for Safe Gaming, Responsible Gambling, Self-Exclusion, +18, as well as Gaming Labs Certified. Beyond all these aspects, just being a product of PokerStars is a guarantee of security and reliability for the vast majority of users.
PokerStars Casino Mobile App
On the PokerStars Casino website, we can access the Mobile section, where we can find the PokerStars Casino app for Android and iOS. Although not all games on the website are available, PokerStars Casino is doing an excellent job and we can play slots, roulette, blackjack, or live casino games on our mobile or tablet without forgetting the option of managing our funds from our mobile devices. The PokerStars Casino app is separate from the poker and sports betting apps.
One of the few downsides of PokerStars Casino is the customer support service where we do not have live chat or contact phone number. The only way to contact them is through the form found in the Help section. We have to fill out the form and wait for a response, although they already warn Philippines that the response be delayed and invite Philippines to check the Help Center.
At this Help Center, we have all the information about how PokerStars Casino works, as well as common doubts on topics as diverse as managing deposits and withdrawals, validating accounts, technical issues, offers, etc. On PokerStars Casino's own website, we can find links to their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram profiles, but only the first one is specific to Philippines and hasn't been updated in months.
PokerStars Casino: Opinions and conclusion
Any casino player should take into account PokerStars Casino. We are talking about a very comprehensive casino, where above all, the wide range of exclusive games it has and one of the most powerful live casinos, with up to a dozen live roulettes. Just for this, it is worth registering and trying it out, not to mention the games that you will not find in other casinos. We can say that PokerStars Casino breaks with the molds to which we are accustomed.
Although the game selection is excellent, we cannot overlook the fact that there is no demo mode available and the roulette section is somewhat lacking. The latter is compensated for with live roulette, but there is no solution for the former. Another aspect to improve at PokerStars Casino, a chronic flaw of the platform, is the absence of a live chat and customer support phone number. One is enough to offer an immediate response to the user, but it is incomprehensible that an operator of this caliber does not include it.
Nevertheless, we are dealing with an operator to take into account. Pokerstars is a worldwide gaming giant, and just by visiting its complete casino, we can realize that they are betting very seriously on the sector.
