Software

PokerStars is well known for how easy it is to play multiple tables. Some players have as many as 24 tables opened with ease at any time. Backgrounds can be altered with many different skins available.

Multi-Tabling

PokerStars is the absolute best when it comes to multi-tabling. You will be hard pressed to find a site that makes multi-tabling more easy and more importantly, comfortable.

Player Programs

PokerStars uses FPPs, an abbreviation for Frequent Player Points. These points basically serve as replacement for rakeback, with many fantastic bonuses (including cash) being available in exchage for FPPs. The catch is that it typically requires players to put in a very large hand volume on a consistent basis before they see the really good cash rewards. PokerStars does not offer rakeback but does offer deposit and reload bonuses.

Customer Service

PokerStars has the absolute fastest response time of any online poker site in regards to email inquiries. They are also available by phone. When you email PokerStars support you can expect a response within 5 minutes.

U.S. Player Information

PokerStars has long been noted for its inconsistency in available deposit methods. Some debit cards do work, but they might work one day and not work the next, for no apparent reason. Echecks became a popular method and are once again available. The issue with Echeck deposits is that it limits the amount that can be deposited at a time. Because of the difficulty in depositing large amounts of money on PokerStars many players prefer to trade with fellow players.
