Our review of PokerStars

PokerStars is one of the longest running and most successful online poker rooms in the UK today. They have created a strong player base and recently broke records for running the site with over 100,000 players online at once! We think one of the main reasons for their extreme success is that they've never gotten into overly fancy graphics and gimmicks that slow the game down, but rather focus on a good clean look that gives you maximum control poker at a good pace.
