Duplicate accounts are not permitted

We allow each player to use one Stars Account only, because an important part of poker is identifying your opponent's strategy and responding to it. If everyone plays under a new account name, this skill becomes impossible to apply. The 'one account per player' rule is designed to protect the integrity of our games.

Once you create an account you must keep the Stars ID you have selected, so choose carefully. You will need to log in with your existing Stars ID and password into all versions of our software.
