Title:still delusional tho :D0 out of 9 readers found this review helpful
if a major site like pokerstars (or any other major site/network) was rigged in the way many of the frustrated losing players describe, it would be very easy to prove.

yet, as of now, nobody of you morons who cant play cards has done so. its not hard if you know 3rd grade math guys so just prove it FFS.

how do people win at these sites? there are people who live off online poker. they live off ur money, because u cant compete. thats it, simple as that.

i play both online and live and have seen brutal beats and runouts in the real as well as the digital world. thats the nature of the game, thats why u fish can win occasionally :).

i have tracked a huge number of hands and there is nothing wrong with the RNG at stars/ongame/party/pacific (thats where i play, i assume other sites have a normal RNG too tho).

the rigtards bitching about being cheated blabla - guess what its not easy to beat most online game anymore. u guys arent good enough.

take some probability classes and maybe psychology too. u will understand things like standard deviation, 1%ers happening some times etc. as well as the mental aspect, the perception of their occurance.

Title:losing players crying0 out of 5 readers found this review helpful
u guys are freakin delusional, 100s of claims from losing fish, stating that stars is rigged yet none of u dolts can give any proof based on decent sample size.

rng rig etc. is so easy to prove even my 12yr old brother could do it. are u guys all braindead when it comes to math/statistics or why arent u proving this "scam".

ive been playing on stars for years and i have won a lot of money on there. the "houseplayers" who "always win" are the sharks gunnin for your money. yep suck it up, U ARE THE FISH.

btw i win more on euro sited because fish are more widespread and less regulars are hustlin u math donks who cant compete.

Title:great site0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
Stars are by far the best site iv ever played on, good software, brilliant support and good trafic. The only problem i see is that the tournaments have so big fields it takes forver to play them and that stars in my opinion have the best players. It feels like evreyone who takes poker seriously plays there and that makes games hard.

U guys that says owners are wanted i usa u even know why???? look into that laughing my head off here when i see those comments since they are coming from people that use the "criminal activity" themselves.....

And btw, its not rigged, learn about variance and play better.

Title:Needs Improvement1 out of 21 readers found this review helpful
PokerStars is the most efficient place to play poker for real money. It has a variety of deposit options, and quick withdrawl options as well. Smooth graphics and real easy to multitable.

The problem is they don't have bet-slider options so you almost always are forced to use the keyboard to make your bets. A person like me who likes to just chill out, lay back and slouch on my chair using the mouse 99.9% of the time has to sit up and use the keyboard hahaha. So you can imagine it's kinda hard to play at PokerStars with a laptop.

That's where FullTilt is better than PokerStars, you can play alot more casually and comfortably at FullTilt because they have a few bet-slider options and you can increase or decrease the incriments as you move the arrow on the slider to place your bet. Really, really, really helpful.

But PokerStars beats FullTilt on smoother graphics, less lag time when loading, better multi-tabling stability, and quicker/easier cashouts.

Overall, I would say PokerStars is Best, but always room for improvement.

Title:It's not pokerstars' fault that you suck at poker0 out of 4 readers found this review helpful
You people are pathetic. Seriously. You suck at poker but you blame everyone but yourselves.

I played on PS for near 6 years and not once did I not turn a 5 figure profit.

If any of the PS staff read this review, I just wanted to say thank you for being the shining example of what an online poker site should be. Quick cashouts, top notch customer service and the ability to efficiently manage a crisis like black friday.

You guys rock and all the true grinders really appreciate your hard work. Don't let the retarded degenerates get you down!

Title:rigged-maybe--designed to promote betting-You bet0 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
If you read any of the ratings of any of these poker sites, the same issue is with all of them. I truly believe they are not rigged but are indeed designed to generate rakes wich means profits for them. If everyone folds--no dough- so they have to make people bet so they can generate their rake. As one other rating has said, the cards must be predetermined in the RNG to allow players to have hands which LOOk got but somehow get beaten by rotten luck or plain crap.
Pokerstars support, whenever I have used them has been topnotch. Cashouts are immediate and any problems I ever had were dealt with swiftly and effectively.
Chat moderators, although sometimes a PIMA, keep the game friendly except for the Nonenglish problem.
All online sites have their issues with bad beats but if you watch any TV pokershow- they are there too.

Title:Not bad0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
I've reviewed quite a few sites on here and not had much good to say about any of them.


I've been playing on pokerstars for about a week and i'm quite pleased with it. I've seen a few bad beats handed out and even handed out a couple of my own but things seem to be evening out a bit. I'm a little concerned that this might be another site that allows you to hit everything for the first month and then jams it in you after that. Having said that, i'm not running that well.

So my first impressions are quite positive.
