First launched in September 2001, PokerStars has made a name for itself as one of the biggest and best online poker platforms.
PokerStars generates a staggering amount of traffic each week, with more poker players on PokerStars than every other poker network combined.
In fact, PokerStars actually accounts for over half the online poker traffic generated by western poker sites.
The PokerStars network pulls in an average of 10,000 poker players per week. PokerStars also generates staggeringly high tournament traffic, especially at the weekend, when the platform hosts its most popular knockout tournament events like Sunday Million, Sunday Storm and Saturday Micro.
PokerStars is popular because it is highly accessible, flexible and easy to use. It also boasts a diverse poker game catalogue which includes poker content from industry-leading developers.
The best thing is, it could not be easier to get on board with PokerStars. To register your PokerStars account, you will first need to download an application and follow some easy step-by-step instructions.
Make sure you have a valid ID ready, as PokerStars only accepts forms of identification that are issued by a government. Once you have input some basic personal details and shown your valid identification, you are good to go!
