Betstars are a new player in the world of sports betting and are keen to develop their mobile presence. We were quite impressed with what they offered on their desktop site, so we were looking forward to finding out if they had continued this. We wanted to see how the Betstars mobile app functions and see if it stood up to our rigorous testing. Developing an easy to use betting app for on the go is no easy feat. Read on to see how it does.
Our analysis looks into many different factors before giving out a grade. We will look at the overall user experience, we’ll see how easy it is to use, what markets are on offer, and things such as live streaming. The first thing we’ll look at, is how to get started.
In order to begin looking at the app, you need to find it. No worries, we’ve got you covered. Simply scan the QR code at the top of this screen and you be directed straight to the Betstars App.
Those who already have an account will be able to easily use it on their mobile device. Simply tap the ‘Login’ button, put in your usual details and you are good to go. For those who do not have an account, don’t despair! The process for getting one is quick and easy, and over in just a few steps. Simply tap the green ‘Join’ button at the top right of the screen and then follow the prompts and enter your details where needed. It’s as easy as that!
What Can I Find in the Betstars Sportsbook App
Betstars sportsbook app has a lot to offer. With all the regular sports such as football, horse racing, and tennis. They also provide a range of less popular sports such as floorball, Esports and various specials. Which is something we like. Even so, just having a quick look is not enough to judge this app. First, we need to go more in-depth.
App Design and Navigation
The Betstars mobile app is nicely designed and navigating it is pretty easy to do. At the top of the screen is a handy scrolling bar, or a side bar to find all your favourite sports as quickly as possible. It is quite responsive, and we didn’t have any issues jumping from one section to another. What’s more, popular bets are shown, as well as odds boosted ones. So, it’s pretty handy if you just want a quick flutter. Even a novice to the mobile world could figure out how to use this app!
- Betting App Navigation Smooth user interface with straightforward app navigation means it is easy to find your way around in very few clicks.
- Football Bets on the App Your football betting journey begins with a simple touch on the readily identifiable football icon.
- Live Betting on Mobile The Betstars app’s in-play betting feature allows users to place a bet while a game is in process, while the scoreboards make it possible for punters to immerse themselves in the action.
- Present Promotions There are plenty of promotions on the BetStars app. The 80+ minute goal insurance is just one of them.
- Horse Racing Markets In addition to Best Odds Guaranteed, horse race betting on BetStars comes with another perk: a racing acca bonus.
- Safe Mobile Transactions No matter what payment method you feel attached to, it is highly unlikely that BetStars don’t offer it on their app.
Live Betting and Streaming
The handy ‘in-play’ icon means you are always just one click away from live betting options. Once you’ve found what you want to bet on, Betstars provide a handy infographic depicting in real-time the events of the game. Plus, they provide a few stats, so you can asses the flow of the game. If you are a horse racing fan, you are in luck! Betstars mobile app also comes with live streaming of At The Races, although you can only access the Racing UK stream via the desktop.
Bonus Offers for Betstars App Users
Betstars does not have any mobile only offers. However, they do already have many promotions you can take advantage of, check them out on our Betstars betting offers section. New customers can bet £20 and then receive £20 in bets in return. They have many other ongoing offers such as odds boost, acca insurance, goal insurance, and more. So, you are sure to find something you like. We would have liked an incentive for mobile users, and we did ask their customer support if they would be implementing any, however, we did not get a concrete answer. It is probably worth keeping an eye on in any case.
Betslip and Minimum Bet
The betslip is ok to find and is the blue icon on the right-hand side. Once you’ve placed a selection and want to bet, you then have to click on the icon, choose the type of bet, then the stake, then confirm. It takes up the whole of the screen and is a bit cumbersome. It doesn’t feel as sleek as some other options out there, nevertheless it is still functional. The minimum bet ranges from £0.01 to £0.10 depending on the event, which we find very reasonable. You’ll be able to place all types of bets you want, you just have to fiddle a little with the betslip first.
Transactions & More
It’s always nice to know you can use your preferred payment method when using a bookie. Therefore, this ranks highly in our overall grade as to what we give them. There is nothing worse than trying to deposit some money in your account only to find out you can’t! Luckily, Betstars mobile has you covered. You can use traditional methods, such as, Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, and a Local Bank transfer. Where they really excel is providing you with many other non-traditional options, such as, PayPal, Neteller, MuchBetter, Skrill, paysafecard, and Neosurf. We are pretty sure you can find what you are looking for.

Betstars App: iOS & Android Requirements
The Betstars app download is pretty easy and there are only a few requirements. The first, and most important, is that you actually have a mobile, tablet, or similar handheld device! The second is that you either have iOS 9.0 or later if you use Apple products, or KitKat (4.4) if you use Android. These are pretty standard requirements for newer apps, and if you have a relatively new phone, or update it regularly this should be no problem at all.
- Android Android OS 4.4 or later.
- iPhone and iPad iOS 9.0 or later.
If you don’t want to download the app to your phone, you can always use the Betstars mobile website through your phone’s browser. This basically replicates the app on your screen, and while it will probably take longer to load, it also allows you to have the option to bet on the go. This is a pretty good option for you if you do not meet the requirements for a download.
Final Thoughts on the Betstars App
Overall, we feel the app is pretty good. It’s easy to use, and navigating is nice and easy. There are many sports on offer, and for a new player they have a good selection of markets. We’d like them to have better bonus offers for mobile users, and also a better and more fluid betslip, but overall the experience is very solid. There are more things to like than not, and even if you aren’t used to using a mobile to bet on the go, this is a solid choice and we are confident if you like Betstars, you’ll get on well with their app.

- BetStars Mobile App Pros & Cons
- Slick navigational structure
- Options easily identifiable
- Fair range of sports
- Decent choice of payment methods
- 48-hour withdrawal delay
- Limited live chat coverage
Furthermore, customer service is pretty solid and often respond within the hour when you ask them a question. The FAQ section of their website is also very helpful and provides you with many options. This is something not every bookie does well, so as a new operator we are impressed with how quickly they have tried to establish themselves as one of the best betting apps on the UK market. Whilst we have given an in-depth review, we can’t cover everything, so we encourage you to download the app and give it a go yourself!
