Evolution & Playtech
The Pokerstars Live Casino has a great selection of live games from both Evolution and Playtech. It’s an unusual combination to have both! They have one of the largest selections of dedicated Blackjack tables around.
I very much enjoyed playing here (because I seemed to win more than I lost!). But regardless, they offer live casino players great promotions. The only downside is the poor currency exchange rates when withdrawing.
- Huge selection of dedicated tables
- Evolution & Playtech Software
- Great Promotions
- Lots of Native Language Roulette Tables
- Progressive Jackpots
- Play in $, poor currency conversion back.
Pokerstars Live Casino Review – Introduction
This is my comprehensive review of the Pokerstars Live Casino where I cover the software they use and the live games you can play.
I reveal some interesting facts about the games and how Pokerstars compares with other Evolution Live Casinos.
If you’re not interested in reading through this lengthy review of the Pokerstars online Live Casino, I’ve prepared a short video that covers everything you really need to know.
The live casino at Pokerstars has grown steadily over the past few years. It now has one of the largest private dedicated sets of tables of any live casino.
I’ve wanted to recommend them for a while, but couldn’t, primarily because they were a download-only casino. I didn’t like the Download process and the playing experience was poor.
Now you’re able to play directly through your browser, although there is a Download option if you like playing that way.
Either way, I am now happy to recommend them as they have a more player-friendly way of getting to the Live Casino.
The highlights of this review reveal that:
- When you deposit you end up playing is $ US dollars. Watch out for the conversion back to £ when you withdraw. The rate is not very good!
- There are some of the lowest and highest stake ranges I’ve come across for Blackjack and Roulette.
- La Partage, French & American Roulette versions are available at the Playtech Live Casino.
- Casino Hold’em and Caribbean Stud Poker both have Progressive Jackpots.
- The dealers are some of the chattiest and friendly I’ve come across.
- The Gaming lobby has all the Evolution & Playtech games mixed together. They all open in a separate browser window.

Pokerstars Live Casino on Mobile
All of the live games are available on Mobile and can be played in both Landscape and portrait orientations.
If you go to the website on your device you’ll be prompted to install the Pokerstars APP.
This downloads quickly and gives you access to the whole Pokerstars casino. You’ll need to log in again, a bit of a faff I know.
Locate the live game you want to play, click on it and you’ll be taken into the Evolution Live Casino Lobby to select the table or any other game you fancy.
I deposit and withdraw from the UK and I generally use my Visa Debit card to do it. PayPal is also accepted.
I had no problems with my first few deposits. My card then got blocked, as it turns out there was a restriction on Internet Gambling Transactions on my account.
I managed to resolve this with my Bank and haven’t had any further issues.
Watch out for the conversion rates between GBP and US Dollars. Deposits get converted to play in $ and the exchange rate is good.
However, on withdrawals the rate is awful and you’ll get stung. I lost about £20 from a £500 withdrawal all down to the conversion rate!
You’ll need to verify your account if you plan to make more than £2000 in bets. It didn’t take me long before I got an email.
There are two ways to verify, send your id, and a recent utility bill to them through email. My preferred method which is more secure is to upload the docs through your player account.
Customer support was very good in helping me. I used Live Chat and they were quick to respond and knowledgeable about my issue.
I also found lots of info in the FAQs on the site, so I’ve only got positive things to say.
I’ve been impressed with the security that Pokerstars has. From password resets to encrypted sessions using HTTPS, everything is in place to keep your data secure.
Bonuses and Promotions
Live Casino players get offered a signup bonus, details of which you can find on the website.
There are also regular promotions available on the tables, so keep a lookout for those.
There is also a scheme called Star Rewards. You need to opt into this and for every $ you play, you’ll get points that can be redeemed for gifts, cash, and playing credits.
Again full details of this can be found on the website.
I’m pleased that I came back to take a good look at the Pokerstars live casino.
The fact it has so many dedicated tables for Blackjack is a huge positive.
This sends out a big message that they are a serious operator that understands what Live Casino players are looking for.
They have a fully optimised Mobile site and all games are available on Mobile and Tablets.
I’ve been impressed and will certainly be playing here more often, especially now I’ve got my Debit card working again.
They could soon be making their way onto my best live casino list, but not until I’ve played for a few months more.
Give Pokerstars a try I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
