Betstar Android App Review
Betstar is a sister company of the giant bookmaker Ladbrokes, and its app shares a similar interface structure, although its colour scheme is different. The polished, professional looking app boasts one of the best interfaces available today, loading rapidly and offering a number of excellent features that make placing a bet easy and rapid. User friendly and visually appealing, if you have ever used another bookmaker’s app, you are sure to find the Betstar interface highly intuitive, being able to quickly change between active markets, sports and sub markets. All of the odds and markets are displayed in an intuitive and concise way. To make placing a bet even quicker, punters can take advantage of the Quickbet facility which allows punters to skip using a betting slip and instead bet using a pre-configured amount, and all promotions that are being offered on your chosen selections will be displayed alongside the odds for your convenience.
Unfortunately, Betstar does not offer one of the lowest bookmaker margins on the market. While offering the same odds as the sister sites Ladbrokes and Bookmaker.com.au, Betstar’s average bookmakers margin comes out at 5.5%, significantly higher than the margin offered by several of its rivals.
This app offers an impressively large selection of sports for betting on, and the liquidity in the markets of the most popular Australian sports matches that available through the biggest Australian bookmakers. All of the most popular American sports can be found here, although the liquidity is not as high as that found in the Australian sporting market. Football coverage is especially high through this provider, with worldwide leagues being covered. Other sports with impressive coverage include golf, tennis, snooker, cycling, boxing, surfing and motor racing, and punters can even place novelty bets on events such as reality show winners, current affairs and the outcome of elections.
When it comes to horse racing, the Betstar Android app offers a good choice of markets including fixed price, top fluctuation and best tote on every racing market including greyhounds, harness and thoroughbreds, with First Four, Quadrella, Trifecta, Exacta, Quinella, Each Way, Place and Win being available on virtually every race day. The Pick Your Own Odds option is an especially interesting feature, allowing punters to select a minimum winning margin for their runner with the odds being dynamically updated to reflect the selection. There is a form guide available for every race and it is possible to combine sports wagers and racing wagers on the same bet slip. Unfortunately, due to legislation, Betstar is unable to offer customers live online betting, and any live bets must be placed via telephone.
The minimum amount set for online betting is very low at just $0.50 making taking a punt accessible for even novices.
There is a great choice of deposit options available through this company, although the range is not as extensive as that on offer through several rival providers. Customers can choose to pay money into their account via bank transfer, credit or debit card, POLi or BPAY, but none of the convenient e-Wallet methods are supported, meaning that fans of Skrill or Neteller will be disappointed by this app. Withdrawals can only be made via bank transfer, which again can be quite time consuming when compared to several rival companies which can make faster payments through other methods. The maximum daily winnings limit for horse racing will peak at $100,000 but will vary depending on the bet type and venue. Payouts for other sports range between $10,000 and $50,000 per day. Credit facilities are also available through Betstar, and members are able to apply for a level from $200 right up to $5000. Account holders should note that if an account remains dormant for over six months it will be subject to a fee of $25 in respect of account management.
With its well designed, sleek interface, speedy loading and impressive betting functionality, the Betstar Android app is an excellent choice for both novice punters and those with years of experience as might be expected from a sister site to the well known bookmaking giant, Ladbrokes. The range of sporting markets for betting is extensive, especially for the most popular Australian sports. The limited range of withdrawal and deposit methods is one downside to this provider, as well as the higher than average bookmaker’s margin and the account management fee levied on dormant accounts.
