PokerStars Mobile App Review Ireland: Sports & Casino Android App

Among the EU punters, PokerStars is a prominent name. The company has been operating since 2011 with pride and the spectacular itinerary of services is a big reason behind the success. Among the many features, mobile compatibility is one of our favourites. 

That’s why in this post, we’re going to explore the PokerStars Android app for Irish punters. We’re going to look at the user experience as well as guide you on how to download the app for yourself.   

PokerStars Android App User Experience 

In many cases, you don’t “feel” like you’re using a mobile app. PokerStars is one of those brands that will make you feel it. Both the design and the optimization are so good that you can’t help but appreciate the amazingness of the app. 

It’s not just true for Android users. The app is available for iOS users as well and the usability is just as good. We have a separate page for the iOS variant if you’re interested. 

Coming back to the Android app, you can’t use it without opening an account first. It’s not really a drawback in our opinion. But some punters may find it unfair because wanting to check out the app before signing up is a legit concern. 

In terms of features, the app is very intuitive. Whether you’re looking into changing the settings or trying to access the in-play menu, everything is laid out in front of you. 

You get to configure the bet slip in any way you want, just like it is the case with both desktop and mobile websites. 

Sports Markets

The entire sports library of PokerStars Sports is available on the Android app. If you’ve used the website before, you’d know that you have to click on the “A-Z” menu to expose the full list of available sports. 

You can do the same in the app. Upon tapping on the A-Z menu, you’ll find sports events for Alpine Skiing, Cricket, Futsal, Motor Sports, Tennis, Rugby Union, Volleyball, MMA, Ice Hockey, Speed Skating, Freestyle Skiing, Football, Floorball, Boxing, and whatnot! 

It’s not just the massive sports library that makes PokerStars an amazing operator for Irish punters. It’s the competitive odds. Very bookmakers come close to this operator in terms of the odds. 

Bonuses & Promotions 

Just think about it. If PokerStars decided to get rid of the promotions for the mobile app users, would anyone ever download it? No, right? So, yes, all of the promotions that PokerStars is known for are available on the Android app. 

It includes Free Multiple Bet Offer, Sunday Freeroll, All Sports Multiple Bonus Up to 100%, RequestABet Free Bet, and so on! The wagering conditions are also the same as the web-based counterparts.   

All in One App

The app you download is not just for the sportsbook. Rather, you can get into the online casino and the poker room from the same app. It’s a fantastic feature in our opinion because who wants to download separate apps for everything? 

How to Download the App

Now, the download process is very interesting at PokerStars Ireland. If you didn’t know, there is a different .com URL for the countries outside of the EU. That website has a dedicated page for mobile apps. But the .eu website doesn’t. 

Rather, you can see a button on the homepage banner that says “Download PokerStars”. That’s what you need. It’ll download the Android app if you’re using an Android phone. Similarly, it’ll download the Windows, Mac, or iOS app depending on what device you’re using. 

So, here’s the process of downloading the PokerStars Android app. 

  1. Visit the PokerStars mobile website from your Android phone. Make sure you give permission to the browser to download and install apps from the settings. Otherwise, your device may recognise the app as a security threat. 
  2. Once the website loads, look for the button we talked about. When you tap on the button, the .apk file will start downloading. It’s a good feature in our opinion because Google Play sometimes causes problems for gambling apps. 
  3. Install the apps and log in. You’re ready to rock.
