RedStar Poker has maintained a very good reputation within the poker industry in the last 12 years. The Microgaming Poker Network is a global online card room in which players from different poker rooms play against each other. With one huge, seamless network bringing multiple rooms from around the world together, Microgaming provides non-stop action for poker fans, anytime, anywhere. The site stands out from its competitors on the network by offering an extended amount of deposit options including digital currencies, this coupled with the site’s offer of up to 30% rakeback for players makes this a great option.
Downloads are available for Windows and Mac OS. Redstar Poker’s client is not quite as customisable as some of the market leading software out there, but it does the job and is very easy to play poker on with built-in options to bet certain percentages of the pot included, the most eye-pleasing option for the view is “stealth mode” which can be accessed in the top left of any open table, this removes any bright background images that come as standard on the site, but can be fairly distracting.
The site has varied game modes from Jackpot Sit n Go’s, Fast-fold poker, Cash games, tournaments and play money options. There is something for all players here, Mixed games are not catered for with just the No limit hold’em and Omaha staples being played on the network.
The tournament schedule is a solid one for any micro-mid stakes player, if you are looking to build a bankroll or add to your tournament schedule this site is recommended, with much softer player fields than larger poker sites and with less players in each game you will have a much greater chance of return on your investments here.
There are good value daily guarantees with games from just €11 getting €2,000 guaranteed in prizes and games like the Mosh pit with a €6,000 prize pool for just €22, the structures are good and there is a lot of play in the site’s games, especially the deepstack offerings. Most of the games are at this type of buy-in level up to around €50, with the exception of weekend games where a €110 buy-in will get you into a €50,000 guarantee game.
A fast fold cash game where with one click of a button you will move to the next hand on another table, playing games like this enables you to play many hands an hour without the need of multi-tabling. The games are 6 handed and start at micro stakes of €0.01/€0.02 up to €025/0.50. These games make a solid platform for learning or small stakes grinders looking to build a bankroll, with poor play seen often there is definitely a lot of cash to be made here even at the Micro stakes.
These games are No limit hold’em, 3 handed, super turbo games where a random prize will be selected once all players are seated, with multipliers of 2x – 5000x the buy-in to be won. With smaller prize pools being a winner take all battle, beat off the other two opponents to scoop the cash, however when you spin a prize of above 100x the buy-in, all the players will get a prize with splits of 20% for 3rd place, 30% for 2nd place and 50% for the winner.
Games run from €1-€50 with prizes getting in the hundreds of thousands, these are great games for when you want a quick hit of poker but don’t have much time on your hands, mixing the rush of playing a slot machine whilst then having to play some cards to get the prize, a nice blend for gamblers the world over.
With a healthy ecosystem of both Hold’em and Omaha players on the network, if this is what you are looking for in a poker site I would recommend this site for players of any level, stakes start at €0.02/€0.04 and run all the way to stakes of €5/€10 for 6max games, with occasional action on some full ring tables.
The majority of the action is heads up cash games, with battles on the felt taking place as high as €50/€100. Whatever heads up game you want to play whether its Omaha or Hold’em you won’t be disappointed by the action waiting in store for you.
Downsides are there are no mixed games on offer on the site.
Sit n Go’s
There are plenty of Super turbo heads up and Turbo heads up games running around the clock on the site, with these games getting the most action. Games are played from €5.50 all the way up to €1050 a game.
Other than this the rest of the action with regards to sit n go’s is pretty low stakes with some 6max games from a few cents to €20 being played, but not at any great volume.
RedStar Poker players can qualify for the MPN Poker Tour, held at locations all over Europe such as Malta, Tallinn and Prague. The series boasts huge guaranteed prize pools with previous winners taking home over €150,000. The first way to get an MPNPT package is to win your way in through our online satellite system.

The Red Star Poker Loyalty Levels Program rewards players with Loyalty Points through participation in real money cash games and tournaments, that can then be redeemed for real money cash bonuses, this rakeback will be paid every Monday as points will be redeemed automatically. Recently the site announced that all Red Star Poker players will receive Platinum status, regardless of what time they spend at the poker tables, and on what limit they play, meaning everyone will benefit from 30% rakeback.
Deposits and Withdrawals
As always all major Credit and Debit cards are accepted, you can also deposit using many alternatives with RedStar poker including Paysafecard and digital currencies as well as the usual Ewallets you will know such as Skrill and Neteller. Ewallet withdrawals as always are instant, with Debit and Credit card withdrawals usually processed and in your account within 1-2 business days.
RedStar Poker can make a great addition for many Poker players. If you are a tournament player then you need to get this software, with player fields much softer than other sites you have a good chance at beating the fields here. The site has plenty of heads up action whether it’s sit n go’s or heads up cash games, so if you are a keen heads up player this is the place to make some cash and get 30% Rakeback whilst doing so! Great deposit options if you are a holder of digital currencies too. There are a few minor drawbacks that include there being no mobile app in place, not many high stakes tournaments due to limited players and barely any ring game Sit n Go traffic other than Micro stakes.
