Downloading PokerStars for Mac / Windows / Mobile / Android / iOS

PokerStars may be unavailable for US players, but it is still the undisputed king of online poker rooms. Since its inception in September 2001, PokerStars has seen tens of millions of downloads performed. Throughout the last decade, a combination of,, and country-specific poker sites has enabled PokerStars to have as many online players as the combined number of those on all other poker sites. The poker site has built a solid name for integrity, fairness, and excellent customer support.

PokerStars Software

The PokerStars software is one of the most powerful online gaming software, and it brings games at all stakes levels. There are fantastic rewards for players, such as cash, terrific promotions, and qualifiers into awesome live events. Thanks to this software, PokerStars is the record holder for the most valuable online poker tournament ever played, whose prize pool exceeded $12 million. In December 2011, a multi player tournament that had 200,000 buy-ins was held by the poker room.

The software comes in a Windows, Mac, and Linux download version. There is no flash / no download version. Initially, if you were a Mac user, you would have had to use a Windows Emulator to be able to play. In this case, you might as well just have bought a Windows computer! The download process is straightforward, though it may be a little slower than normal due to the comprehensive terms and conditions.

PokerStars Download for Windows

The PokerStars download for Windows will work on all Windows OS versions from Windows 95. The minimum download system requirements are 100MHz Pentium Processor, 96Mb RAM, 20Mb disc space, and 800x600 screen resolution for Windows 95 version. Those recommended are for Windows XP+ and they include 333MHz Pentium Processor, 256Mb RAM, 60Mb disc space, and a screen resolution of 1024x768.

How do I download PokerStars Software for Windows?

The download process is easy and quick, with the time taken depending on your computer speed. PokerStars has even provided a three minute video to guide you through the installation process in case you get stuck. You will find it on the home page, right beside the "Play Poker" tab.

To start the download, go to the website and click on the "Play Poker" button. As a precaution against file corruption during the download process, save instead of running the download file. When the download is complete, a set up window will appear and you should select your preferred language and click on "I agree" to the terms and conditions of using the software. You can then select either "Custom" or "Express" installation in the new window that appears to begin the installation process. The difference between the two options is in the browser tool buttons, desktop shortcuts, and quick launch facility that come with express installation. These features are removable.

Once you have selected your preferred option, you click on "Install" and then "Finish". PokerStars will be launched thereafter and you can proceed to register your account, fund it, and start playing cash games. If you already have one, uncheck the "Launch PokerStars" button before you click on "Finish".
