PokerStars Mobile App Review Ireland: Sports & Casino iOS App

Online sports betting has passed the phase of being a niche hobby for a few selected people. The “online” introduction of the century-old trend has created quite the buzz all over the world and Ireland is not excluded. 

In an ocean of online iGaming companies, PokerStars knows how to hold its water very well. On this page, we’re about to explore one of PokerStar’s many specialities, the iOS mobile app.  

PokerStars iOS App User Experience 

In Ireland, iOS users are a tidbit behind Android users. That’s in terms of statistics, of course. Interestingly, the difference between the two is less than 2%! So, it’s obvious that any sportsbook in this country that wants to succeed needs to optimise its mobile services for both devices. 

What do you think is the best way to ensure maximum mobile friendliness? We think it’s to offer an app, and PokerStars seems to have done just that! You get apps for both Android and iOS devices. This is the iOS page but you can find the Android page on our website as well. 

The iOS app is fundamentally not different from the Android variant. In both apps, you can’t look at the features without logging in or signing up. The greeting screen when you first enter the app is the form to enter your login credentials. 

So, if you’re serious about spending your time and money at PokerStars, it’s best if you look at all the features through the mobile or desktop website. 

Once you log in, a whole new world of betting will open up for you. Similar to the main website, you’ll see the major events on the homepage. As it’s a downloaded version, you can pick favourites to keep you fed on the latest events all the time. 

Sports Markets

The number of sports and the markets are more or less the same for the mobile website, the Android app, and the iOS app. Somewhere on the main menu, you’ll find a button labelled “A-Z” and that’s where all of your sports options are listed. 

Needless to say, you can switch between the pre-match bets and in-play bets anytime you like. All you have to do is tap on the “In-Play” tab with the clock symbol beside it. What we like about the in-play section is that you can see the changes in odds in real-time. 

Bonuses & Promotions 

The entire list of bonuses, promotions, and tournaments is available on the iOS app. So, it’s safe to claim that PokerStars in Ireland doesn’t discriminate between different devices. As long as you’re connected to the internet and have a smartphone in your hand, you’re welcome to the promotions.  

One-Stop Solution

We can’t emphasize this feature enough. It’s one of our favourites. Although it’s not exclusive to PokerStars or any other brand, the fact that you can play casino games, poker, and bet on sports from the same platform is amazing! 

Once you’re logged into the app, you can switch between the “CASINO”, “POKER”, and “SPORTS” at any given time. 

How to Download the App

Downloading the PokerStars iOS app is a breeze. But there’s room for some confusion as there are no dedicated pages for the mobile apps. 

Let’s take a look at the downloading and installing process of this premier sportsbook app.  

  1. Visit the website from your iOS device. It’s important that you use the device you want to download the app in. 
  2. Once the homepage loads, you should see a green “Download PokerStars” button in the middle of the page. Tap on it to start the download process. 

Note: The reason we asked you to use the iOS device for this step is that the website dynamically changes the file type. If you used an Android device, you’d download the .apk file with the same button. In this case, it’s going to be a .ipa file.

    3. Once the download is complete, make any security changes necessary on your device to flawlessly install the app before using it. 

Wrapping Up

The powerful nature of the latest iOS devices makes it easy to run gambling apps. The PokerStars iOS app is a prime example. Although it’s not a particularly demanding app, the mobile user experience is phenomenal on the latest Apple devices.
