Sports Betting at BetStars
BetStars is a newcomer in sports betting, launched in late 2015 under the world-renowned PokerStars brand. It has domains for websites in several countries and currently offers betting on over 25 different sports, including eSports.
If you like to switch between poker, casino games and sports betting, you'll be pleased to know that BetStars allows players to use a single wallet for all three.

Once you use your free bets (perhaps scoring a nice win or two along the way), you might acquire a taste for betting with BetStars. If that's the case, you should know that BetStars run several recurring promotions, as well as special one-time offers linked to major sports events.
Remember to check the terms and conditions of each promotion if something's not clear.
Money back offers
It's always a consolation to have a money back offer when your bet doesn't win. BetStars will refund your losing bet as a free bet in certain sports and scenarios.
This could be when your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd in a selected race, for a 0-0 “bore draw” in the Big Five European football leagues or if your football accumulator misses out due to just one losing selection.
Money back specials are also available on big events like the NBA Playoffs and NHL Playoffs, so check the BetStars website to see which events could give you a free bet at the moment.
You're probably familiar with the Cash Out concept by now, which is common with most bookies. In any case, it's reassuring to know you have the option if you wish to take it up. Take the money and run or sweat it out to the death? The choice is yours!
Spin & Bet
Spin & Bet is a unique feature which gives you a chance to increase your winnings by up to 10 times. It is a spin-off (see what we did there…) of the Spin & Go tournaments organised on PokerStars.
Basically, you make your selection as usual and choose the “Spin and Place Bet” option when placing your bet. You'll see the spinner on screen which will show the odds multiplier for your winnings e.g. x1, x1.5, x2, x5, x10.
A word of warning…BetStars will take 10% of your stake if you use Spin & Bet, so while there is a chance of increasing your odds, you could end up losing part of your stake for nothing.
What's more, the pay table shows that 80% of Spin & Bets are awarded the x1 odds multiplier. You guessed it, that means your odds remain exactly the same and you lose 10% of your initial stake to boot. So, by all means check out the Spin & Bet feature, but we say advance with caution!
After launching its UK website in early 2016, BetStars modified its welcome offer twice over the course of the year:
- Jan 2016 – June 2016: Bet £5 Get £20 in free bets
- June 2016 – Sept 2016: Bet £10 Get £30 in free bets
Those of you who were able to get £30 in free bets probably were the luckiest! But it's still an offer worth pursuing for new players, in order to get £20 in free bets.
