PokerStars alternatively offers $30 free to those who make a $20 deposit. This is for those looking to deposit less money but still want to get a great bonus when joining PokerStars. You can download the desktop application or play on iOS or Android with your mobile device.
Rest assured that online poker is legal in Michigan, and PokerStars is legal, licensed, and safe to play with within state borders.

Michigan Championship of Online Poker
After less than a month of online wagering being allowed in Michigan, PokerStars is kicking off with a massive event with over a million dollars in prizes. The Championship Series kicks off on Saturday, February 20th, and will run through Monday, March 8th. There will be 60 events that PokerStars will host that tally up to that million-dollar mark.
There are several different buy-ins ranging from $10 to $500 so that players can choose whichever competition they are comfortable with. These tournaments are also not limited to just Texas Hold’em. There are other games, including Omaha, Stud, and Draw evens, that are included in this 60 event series.
The entire series will be capped off with a two-day event that has a $300 buy-in. There will be $125,000 of prize money guaranteed at this event. That final big event will start on Sunday, March 7th, and last through Monday, March 8th.
Today, 2/20/21, will include the first three events, including a $100 buy-in with $30 in the guaranteed prize pool! The start time for this event is 6 pm Eastern Time. You will want to make sure that you are signed up for PokerStars and have entered the tournament before that time in order to join and play.
One amazing new feature that PokerStars is unveiling is PokerStars VR. You can play poker now in virtual reality, and it is free to play. You can download the software on the Oculus Store, Steam, or Viveport. This is a crazy new experience that can be loads of fun and, again, is free to try!
You can see others try out the VR experience on Twitch. PokerStars has its own Twitch channel as well as loads of content creators that play PokerStars live on Twitch every single day.
