Opening a Stars Account

To open an account:

  1. Go to our website.
  2. Click on the Download PokerStars button.
  3. You will be prompted to save our software installation file.
  4. Save the file, run it, and after installation, our icon should appear on your desktop.
  5. Open it and you will see the option to create your username and password (choose your username carefully, as this will be used to identify you at poker tables and it cannot be changed).
  6. Finalize the process by inserting your email address, country of residence, source of reference, and acknowledgment that you are over 21 years old.

Once your new account has been created, you will be credited with 35,000 Play Money poker chips, which are completely free and have no real value. You will then be ready to play at the tables.
