How big is PokerStars?

PokerStars has on average 12,500 cash game players online climbing up to 24,000 players at peak times, making it the World's highest traffic online poker room. US players are not accepted.

Is it good value?

Most casual players will receive around 10-15% rakeback, however high volume players can achieve up to 30%. Although rewards are low, PokerStars has the widest selection of game types (including Omaha and HORSE) and the lowest rake online.
