Find Play Money games on the PokerStars Next Gen app

First of all, make sure you're in the Play Money lobby where all games are Play Money ONLY.

To switch lobbies (if necessary): If your balance on the app opening screen shows a real-money currency, go to 'Account' and toggle the option to 'Play Money'.

From the Play Money Poker screen, you can reach all game lobbies (Cash Games, Sit & Go, or Tournaments) by tapping on the respective menu at the header bar. Every game lobby has a similar structure, either games are listed right away or you have the option to scroll through formats and choose the variant you're interested in.

Tournaments lobby: Here, you'll be taken right away to the games list.

  • By adjusting the 'Freeroll' labeled slider, you can specify the buy-in range you're interested in.
  • By tapping on 'Load more' at the bottom of the screen, more games will be displayed (which start later than the ones featured further up on the list).
  • By tapping on a tournament, you'll get to the registering screen.

Tournament filter: The filters are a great way to customize your search.

  • By tapping on the radio button (next to the 'Freeroll' labeled slider), the filter screen opens.
  • You can set filters for various options, depending on the game variant.
  • Make your choice and select 'Show Games' when you're ready.
  • Use the 'Reset' button at the top to clear your selection.

Sit & Go and Cash Game lobbies: Here, you can choose from different formats (i.e. Hold'em, Omaha) and various variants (like Single-Table, Multi-Table, Heads Up, etc.).

  • After you've selected a variant, the list of available games will be displayed.
  • Again, you have the buy-in slider and access to filters for most game variants.
  • Choose your game and register on the next screen.

To search for a particular tournament (with tournament name or ID): You can search tournaments by text by using the magnifying glass icon in the Poker lobby.
