Best known in the online poker world through PokerStars, BetStars is also a bookmaker with a promising future. Since 2016, the sports betting platform has been added to the list of online services. Through perseverance, the establishment has taken a place of honour in a highly competitive environment. BetStars is a very user-friendly site and has been able to highlight the key points that will appeal to a large number of punters. Let’s now discover what this worldwide reference operator is really worth, now established in many parts of Europe.
Today, BetStars displays a certain warranty on the security of its players while affirming its credibility. Indeed, the bookmaker operates legally thanks to a license issued by the ANJ (formerly ARJEL). With such a high profile in the various countries in which it operates, the online betting site has a duty to ensure that its activities run smoothly, always in compliance with rigorous regulations.
BetStars on mobile
You can access the BetStars platform via a mobile browser. This is a practical and efficient version that can be used with the same functionality as the website. The mobile application, which is compatible with both iOS and Android operating systems, allows users to enjoy all of its services on a small screen. It should also be remembered that the use of your login details is an integral part of the benefits of the programme.
Bonuses and promotions
As a new member at BetStars, you will receive a maximum welcome bonus of €100, of which €70 will be spent on sports and €30 on poker. To avoid any unpleasant surprises, please read the detailed information sheet about this offer carefully. If you make your first losing bet, the bookmaker will give you a compensation bonus of 100% of the value of your bet, up to a maximum of €50, in free bets. Each bet must be placed at minimum odds of 2. The bonuses will be added to the list as you become more regular.
BetStars is more original with its ‘Stars Reward’ loyalty programme. A subscribed participant will be entitled to extra points depending on the type of bet chosen. The rewards will be offered in the form of boxes, colour-coded as red, blue, bronze, silver, gold and platinum.
BetStars makes sure that all its players are properly welcomed and refers to the registration process as ‘Creating Stars Accounts’. In general, the process takes only a few minutes and is divided into two parts. All you have to do is click on the ‘Register’ button on the homepage of the site. The first step is to fill in the fields with basic information, including your country of residence, email address, username and password, and then click ‘Continue’.
The sports betting market
For a newcomer, BetStars knows how to rise to the occasion. As proof of its reputation, the interface presents an impressive catalogue of sports events. There are various categories of traditional and popular sports, with a special mention for futsal, which is becoming more and more popular. On the interface, you can choose to place bets on a wide variety of sports, including football, tennis, rugby, formula one, cycling, ice hockey, boxing, American football, darts, petanque, alpine skiing, badminton, biathlon, sailing, snooker and the list goes on.
There are different types of bets at BetStars, ranging from singles to combinations, for the full satisfaction of experienced players. The exclusive Spin&Bet system, which boosts the odds and winnings on bets, is the bookmaker’s main attraction and will tend to delight a host of players. There are no prediction grids, but you will find the cash-out option on several sports matches. If you are interested in live betting, the ‘Live’ tab will direct you to the events connected to this service. The only drawback is that the interface lacks video streaming but makes up for this with a live statistics table.
