Pokerstars, an online poker site used by millions across the globe, has stopped working, leaving many players stuck mid-game or unable to log in.
There’s also been a spike of Pokerstars down reports on the independent outage monitor Down Detector, with reports rising since around 11pm GMT.
But that’s only based on live complaints, and not the many more who likely have not complained online or through social channels like Twitter and Facebook.
The Down Detector outage map says the problems are mainly hitting users in small pockets across the globe including the UK, Europe and the United States.
At the time of writing, there’s no word on what might be wrong with the Pokerstars website or services, but it’s also not helped by the fact that the PokerStars Support twitter account is yet to make a statement.
That being said, there’s clearly issues, as proved by the many complaints online.
Another player, claearly caught mid-game, added: “In case anyone is worried. All tourneys seem to have been paused. I haven’t been logged out yet. So that’s a good sign. In the past it has completely crashed. So let’s hope this doesn’t take all night. @PokerStars“
Whilst a third said: “@PokerStars#pokerstars 35 minutes without a single update after some sort of site crash is a serious lack of costumer service guys. Pretty unacceptable. A crash can happen but people’s money is involved and it shouldn’t take this long to at least tell the costumers what’s up…”
