  • PokerStars, with nearly 50 million registered players at the start of 2012, is the largest online poker cardroom in the world. A PokerStars.com online satellite tournament produced the 2003 World Series of Poker champion, Chris Moneymaker. As the first person to become a world champion by qualifying at an online poker site, Moneymaker's 2003 win was an important factor in catalyzing the poker boom of the mid-2000s. The press has called this the "Moneymaker Effect." PokerStars offers downloadable poker clients for both Windows and Macintosh operating systems. These clients offer users the same features. The Windows client has a Platinum rating on WineHQ for working on Linux operating systems using the Wine software. In January 2012, PokerStars introduced a downloadable mobile client for iOS from iTunes. In February 2012, the company also introduced a client for Android. On July 31, 2012, PokerStars bought its former competitor, Full Tilt Poker. The $731 million deal settles a civil lawsuit with the Department of Justice while giving ownership of Full Tilt Poker's assets to PokerStars.
