Hard to surpassing customer friendliness
That which exists to support at PokerStars is certainly very good. However, as already mentioned while enumerating the advantages and disadvantages, is not really much available, the service is available in our test only by mail, but this fast, friendly and efficient. Nevertheless, would be the establishment of a telephone hotline and a live chats something the customers really miss and which means they would welcome. Even if it is, compared with the times of competition, rapidly sounds that you receive a response within a few hours, many would appreciate an answer, «Now!». It helps little that can be the support also ask questions that have nothing to do with poker. As knowledge of the support abuts anyway quickly reaches its limits.
