If you’re wondering where you’ve seen BetStars, you may recognise the brand from it’s parent company PokerStars, which launched this sports betting brand back in 2016. Given it’s relatively recent entry to the market, especially compared to established high street names like William Hill and Ladbrokes, expect something different.
Website User Experience
Scanning the site, it’s a modern, and easy to use experience. What’s also a refreshing surprise is the amount and quality of useful content available, with news, predictions, analysis and tips right across the world of sport. There is great writing and rich infographics. This is a well funded operation. The betting slip has good functionality, and it’s easy to add your bets and get detailed feedback on your potential earnings, as you input your stake. Navigating around the site is very straightforward and intuitive, with the major betting markets listed in the navigation at the top of the screen. The mobile experience is also well optimized and easy to navigate, which is something you should expect from a newcomer like this.
BetStars Free Bet
The BetStars free bet offer is decent, and far less onerous that some others on the market. Essentially, if you place a £20 bet, this will entitle you to a further 2 x £10 bets. While there are bigger bonuses on the market, this is certainly worth claming.
Other Betting Offers, Bonuses and Deals
The site has been criticised for being a little short on deals for existing customers, but at the time of writing, we could find an accumulator bonus, a £5 free bet on the premier league (deposit required), and racing multiple bonus. So, a decent selection, but perhaps not the to the level of some sites which offer regular weekly free bets of £10.
BetStars has a decent selection of betting markets, covering lpine Skiing, American Football, Aussie Rules Football, Baseball, Basketball, Biathlon,,Boxing/UFC, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Esports, Football, Golf, Handball, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, Motor Sports, Poker, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Ski Jumping, Snooker, Specials, Table Tennis, Tennis. This isn’t quite as extensive as some, but will surely be more than enough for more punters, who are drawn to sports they can recognise, and have some expertise in.
There is 24/7 support, but less types of ways of getting in touch than you would expect. You can use the online contact form on the site, or email customer services on firstname.lastname@example.org.
BetStars Review Conclusion
BetStars are certainly worth keeping an eye on, particularly if you have an interest in Poker or the Casino offering, which can add greater value to your membership. While it’s worth signing up to claim your £20 free bet, and be sure to keep your eye on the site to see if there’s enough to keep you coming back for more.
