Pokerstars has been at the top of the online poker food chain for several years. Even after banning U.S. players in April 2011, Poker Stars continues to enjoy its premier status virtually uncontested. This 2013 Poker Stars review will look at a few important features and statistics. The insane traffic at Pokerstars is a product of excellent software, game variety and the most rewarding promotions ever offered by an online poker room.
Millions of poker players from around the globe play at Pokerstars on a daily basis and the gap between them and other online poker sites continues to grow. In 2011 Pokerstars celebrated their 10th anniversary and over the past decade they have set a number of world records including the largest poker tournament (149,196 players) and the largest weekly tournament prize pool ($11,825,600). This 2013 Pokerstars review will cover bonuses, promotions, traffic, software and banking.If you are from the USA please visit these review for US friendly poker sites.
2013 Poker Stars Marketing Code
The deposit bonus codes needed to claim the largest Pokerstars bonus in 2013 can be somewhat confusing. There are two different codes that need to be entered. Here is an overview on each Pokerstars sign up code:
- 2013 Poker Stars marketing code – The marketing code is entered first. You will enter it when you create your account. Don’t worry about missing it, it is on the last page and you really can’t forget to enter it. Our marketing code is PSP11820.
- 2013 Poker Stars bonus code – This code is easier to understand because it is a true poker deposit bonus code. You will enter it when you make a deposit. Just enter STARS600 in the bonus code field on your first three deposits.
Using these two codes will enable you to receive three 100% bonuses. The maximum bonus allowed in 2012 is $600.
Poker Stars Traffic, Card Games & Tournaments
Pokerstars was peaking at well over 300,000 earlier this year when US players were accepted. They still bring in around 200,000 players so not much has changed. Pokerstars has won several awards for their software and game selection. The software is flawless and they feature over 16 unique card games plus many mixed poker games.
The tournaments at Pokerstars are what really made them what they are today. New tournaments run every few minutes and the prize pools can range from a couple hundred to tens of millions of dollars. Poker Stars hosts more poker tournaments in a single day than Party Poker and the entire iPoker Network does in a week. I recently made a post about Pokerstars tournament strategy that is worth reading.
