What are Star Codes, how do I get one and how can I use it?

Star Codes are used to claim certain promotional offers. Using one, you can opt into promotions, receive bonuses, tournament tickets, special rewards, and more.

Star Codes are different than bonus codes, and in most cases, they don't need a deposit. While some can be used only once, from time to time, we issue reusable Stars Codes also. 

How can I get a Star Code? 

Star Codes are either public either exclusive. If a Star Code is public, you can easily find it on our website. You need to access the Promotions page, and you're all set.

On the other hand, Exclusive Star Codes are available only to selected players, and it's up to our Marketing team to make a list of eligible players. 

To activate a Star Code, all you need to do is take these few simple steps:

  • Desktop software: Log into your account and select ToolsStar Code.
  • Mobile apps:
    • Android app: Once you've logged into your account, open our app's menu and select Settings & ToolsAccountEnter Star Code.
    • PokerStars Next Gen: Open our website in your mobile browser, log in there, and then go to SettingsStar Code.
    • iOS app: Get in touch with our Support team to get a special activation link

Once you've entered the Star Code, you should receive a pop-up message with a confirmation within a few minutes. If it takes longer, be patient and do not enter the code again. When the system is quite busy, it may take slightly longer to process.

If you have any issues, you can reach us via the Contact Support form, available on our applications and website.
