Betstar Bonus Bets & Review

Betstar is one of those bookies where you’ve probably heard of them but haven’t really checked them out. Well, we are here to tell you, that you probably should! Betstar aren’t one of the bigger players in Australia but they do well with the product they’ve got. First deposit bonuses are always nice and Betstar welcomes new account holders with nice incentives. Their wide array of markets across racing and sport definitely gives you plenty of options when placing a bet so you’ll never run out of things to have a punt on with Betstar.

About Betstar

Betstar is a pretty competitive bookmaker that offers up huge variety across racing and sports. Their first deposit bonus is one of the best in the industry and coupled with their easy to use interface, makes Betstar a definite for punters wishing to open an account. Like many corporate bookmakers now, they have their own card too which enables punters to withdraw their winnings as cash, which is always nice to have.

Betstar Background

Betstar was founded by bookmakers Michael and Alan Eskander in 2007. The pair, father and son, had run their own operations separately prior to merging to form Betstar. Licenced in the Northern Territory, Betstar was then sold just seven years later to British giant Ladbrokes, however, still operates under an independent banner.

Betstar Product List

Summary

On review, Betstar was one of the easier and more pleasant bookies to use. This isn’t really a surprise considering they use the same interface as parent company Ladbrokes, with the whole digital experience being world class. Apart from that, Betstar’s first deposit bonus is a great way to start punting and with plenty of markets across racing and sport to bet on, you definitely won’t be bored. We liked Betstar’s Pick Your Own Odds feature, which lets you increase the price of your horse by picking how far it wins by. While that exclusive product is great, Betstar lacks in the essentials that punters want – regular odds boosts, money back specials / promotions and the bells and whistles such as live streaming. That aside, we still liked Betstar’s offering as a whole and that definitely makes it worth downloading their app onto your phone.

Overall rating: 3.5 out of 5.
