Live Betting & Streaming
As soon as you enter the Betstars website you're presented with the matches currently underway across a variety of sports, allowing you to bet in-play within seconds. This in-play tab on the home page displays the current score, time elapsed and the money line odds for the live event of your choice. The range of sports that Betstars offer in-play betting for is impressive, from the crowd favourites such as Football and Tennis to little known sports such as Futsal. Punters who follow horseracing will be able to access Racing UK live streams, however football fans will have to settle for Betstars in game tracker. This feature gives you all the stats and a view of the pitch, which is more than enough to help you make the best bet.
A quick look at BetStars coupon for the upcoming Premier League gameweek will reveal some pretty competitive odds - in some instances the odds even trump those of their more established competitors. One trend we did notice, however, is that BetStars offer lower odds for underdogs than some of the industry's seasoned veterans. So if you're looking to back the long shot, you may be better off looking elsewhere.
What BetStars may lack in value for the underdog, they make up for with their price boosts and enhanced odds. They currently offer 'odds boost' trebles and upwards on various sports, and give customers the chance to enhanced their odds by up to 10x using their unique 'Spin and Bet' product.
BetStars take a unique approach to presenting their impressive selection of sports. Popular links, highlights and an A-Z of sports means that there's no more clicking through endless drop-down menus. There are even quick links providing easy access to all of their poker and casino games.
The site is presented in a simple, light, easy-on-the-eye theme and we're sure everyone from beginners to experienced punters will be able to fill their betslip within minutes.
If you're looking to take BetStars on the go, you'll be able to choose between mobile web or the BetStars app - their website is available on most web-enabled devices, including mobiles and tablets.
Betstars app means that you'll be able to take all the best features offered on the main site, on the go. All you need to do is download - BetStars supports iOS and Android devices. So if you're on your way to an event that you forgot to place a bet for, the app allows you to easily place bets, check your betslip and cash out any time during the game. BetStars definitely get top marks for presentation, as they've taken their attractive website and reworked it perfectly for mobile devices. If you're using BetStars on a tablet, you're in for a treat, with a split screen view which allows you to easily check your open bets without leaving the main page.
If you place your first £10 bet on odds of evens or greater, BetStars will give you £20 worth of free bets to use on any sport. This isn't the biggest welcome offer you'll ever see, and unfortunately your free bets can only be used on singles, so your winnings will be limited. You'll have to act quickly too, as unused free bets expired seven days after being credited.
Still new on the sports scene, Betstars can be forgiven for not offering as many promotions as their more established competitors, but there's still a few attractive promotions on offer here - their Spin and Bet promo gives you the chance to multiply your winnings by up to 10x!

BetStars seems like a great place to bet, with their fun, light theme and easy to use site. After a closer look, we believe a more generous welcome offer and shorter withdrawal times would make BetStars a more attractive destination for punters. There's still plenty to like at this sportsbook, though, with their unique Spin and Bet promotion and their rewarding Stars Rewards program sure to attract plenty of punters.Sign me up now!
