Betstar Summary

Betstar is one of those bookies you’ve probably heard of but haven’t really checked out. 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. 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 market stables that punters want 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.

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.
