StarSports App Review
StarSports have an optimised betting app for iOS and Android users to experience from their smartphone or tablet devices. StarSports have gone for a more traditional look on their betting platforms. StarSports may not be the most popular choice amongst customers, however they do offer some of the best racing odds and biggest bets that the industry has seen. In this app review we will look at what app features are available for players, what bonuses they can claim and whether or not this app is a recommendation.
The StarSports motto is “slick, smooth, simple”, which is exactly what you can expect from this betting app. The style, theme and features are kept very traditional and simple, making it very easy to find your way around the app, although some may consider the app as a whole a bit dull. StarSports is also a 24-hour casino as well as a sportsbook, which is extremely beneficial if you are a casino punter as well as a sports bettor.
For an app that is traditional and looks dated, it runs very smoothly. There should be no issue in terms of loading speeds or graphics, as long as you have a stable internet connection.
StarSports have a great range of markets to bet on. They go beyond just the typical sports that punters normally choose. Thy have branched out and covered more ground by offering markets such as: TV Specials, Politics, Gaelic Sports, and more.
On the StarSports betting app, they have included a news section. There is a tab at the top of the app and if you go into it, you will find a range of recent stories and trending stories in terms of sports, promotions and betting previews.
StarSports are known for having great customer service. Customers can contact a member of the StarSports team in a number of ways, which include: Telephone, Live Chat and Email. It is always nice to see a bookie offer this variety, as it gives customers a choice.
The app is well structured and organised. There is a menu hub that will allow you to choose the different sports and markets that you want to bet on. You can also flick between sports betting, live betting and casino betting with ease.
Offers & Bonuses
There is a nice variety of well rewarding promotional offers for customers to get their hands on at StarSports. There is not one clear welcome package for new customers, the offers that you can find on this betting app are constantly changing. An example of this is that StarSports base their promotions around upcoming sporting events. Let’s take football for example, during international week, StarSports were offering free bets of up to £50 on particular games.
Other promotions that they offer for sports betting include:
- Acca Insurance: If you place an accumulator bet on football that consists of 5-fold or more, you can get your betting stake back as a free bet up to £25 if one selection lets you down.
- Horse Racing Free Bets: Customers can receive £25 in free bets when they back a winner in the ITV races that have odds of 4/1 or higher. This is to be used on another racing event later that day.
The football betting page for the StarSports betting app is packed with betting selections. You can find the betting page for football by using the menu down the left-hand side, choose the football sport option and you will sing all the markets for football. At the top of the page, you can narrow your search volume by selecting options from the following categories: Coupon, Competition, Time and Market. Under this, you will find a list of the different markets that are separated into leagues and competitions. StarSports offer a range of the best football leagues to bet on, which includes: Premier League, Champions League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and lots more!
Don’t forget to be on the look out for any football promotions that StarSports are offering, they could help increase your winnings.
The horse racing betting page is laid out in a similar style to the football betting page. You can find it by using the menu on the left side of the app, simply select horse racing. On the horse racing page, you can find a selection of venue tabs at the top. Once you have chosen one of them, you can then see the next available races for that venue and the race cards. At the bottom there is a full table that will show you every single race time for each venue for that day.
StarSports have a great in-play betting section, this can be found using the in-play tab at the top of the app. Once you have clicked onto it, you can choose from the following sports: Baseball, Football, Volleyball. Choose a sport and then view the range of fixtures that you can bet live on. There are loads of markets within each sport that you can bet live on. If you go onto a football fixture, you have the option to bet in play on markets such as: Next Goal scorer, both teams to score, match winning margin, total goals, Asian handicap and more!
StarSports offer the option of cash out on a select few of their sports. The cash out option can be used in order to take a cut of the total pay out price that is offered if the bet was to be successful.
How to download
It is quick and easy to download the StarSports betting app. It is available at the iOS app store and also the Google Play Store, so if you are an Apple or Android user, head over to the app store and download the app for free.
In honesty, StarSports is not a recommended mobile betting app, although it does function well and still works. It is quite different in some ways in comparison to some competitors, but not necessarily in a good way. The app works and functions and players are able to place their bets with ease, however the lay out can be a bit confusing for players and also the bonuses can be a bit hit and miss.
