How to Play PokerStars Online

So you’ve decided you want to try online poker. Once you’ve downloaded PokerStars and created an ID, you will want to log-in to the client. When you make your first deposit, via the cashier button, make sure to use code “TWENTY”.

Once you’re set up and ready to go you have the options of finding your game of choice, but make sure you understand the variations such as ‘No Limit’, as you don’t want to get caught out betting.

Your other option is to customise the client to your preferences. This can range from deck, table and theme colours.

If I could offer you some tips before going straight into ‘real money’ I would suggest playing around with ‘play money’ for a while, especially if this is your first time playing. Get a feel for how people bet, when to push a good hand etc.

Poker is one of the few games where I would say hand on experience is everything, play and play as much as you can - it’s the only way you’re going to get use to the intricacies of Poker.

But also, as well as knowing the game you need to know the client. You need to know how long you’re given before your hand is automatically folded for example - these are all small, but massively important things you’re going to have to learn.

Then finally, when you’ve been winning, and you feel comfortable you can move into ‘real money’ games and even tournaments. Best of luck from all of us here at Cricket World! Play with PokerStars
