PokerStars Review

The recent purchase of Poker Stars by the Amaya Group means that the world’s largest online poker site could be offering legal and regulated online poker in New Jersey within a few months. Poker Stars license to offer online gaming in New Jersey was suspended in December because of pending indictments against part owner Isai Scheinberg stemming from the Black Friday indictments of 2011.

Poker Stars already has an agreement in place with the Resorts Casino in New Jersey to provide online poker, and likely other casino games, online. As soon as they are approved, which most experts say will happen in the fall of 2014, the gaming landscape in America will change drastically.

Poker Stars is the 500 pound gorilla of the online poker industry, between five and ten times as large as their nearest competitor depending on which metric is used, and they have the best name in online poker for US customers. Many online poker players from the United States see the site as the only good guy in the Black Friday debacle. Of the four sites that were shut down on Black Friday, only Poker Stars paid back their customers, and they bailed out US customers from Full Tilt Poker as well by buying out the bankrupt site and providing funds for the Department of Justice to pay back Full Tilt players.

With the best software, the best brand recognition, the largest customer base, and the most experience in the industry, Stars is poised to become the leader in real money online poker in New Jersey very quickly. US customers can already play on Poker Stars for free, but a real money offering in New Jersey will be a game changer.

We expect Poker Stars to compete for the best bonuses, promotions, and overall rakeback of any site based in the USA in order to gain market share quickly. As soon as they are licensed we will have bonus codes that offer the maximum bonuses on real money deposits and the best long term players incentives. We also expect a strong schedule of freeroll tournaments from Full Tilt / Poker Stars as freeroll tournaments have been a big part of the draw for other regulated online poker sites in New Jersey and they are an excellent way to build market share and garner new sign ups.

There is a strong possibility that real money gaming in New Jersey will be offered under the Full Tilt brand, which was purchased after Black Friday. Full Tilt is run separate from the Poker Stars for now, though the two sites work together and Amaya now owns both sites. Full Tilt has been offering more cash games while Stars has remained focused on tournament play. Full Tilt is currently the fifth largest online poker site in the world according to and the software is comparable to Poker stars, which puts them far ahead of any competitors.

A mobile offering as well as a version for PC and Mac should be available for the US version of PokerStars and Rush or Zoom poker product should not be far behind. We are looking forward to see what kind of boost Stars can provide for a US market that has been slow to catch on and we certainly look forward to playing with you on Poker Stars in New Jersey very soon!
