Betstar.com.au was founded in 2007 by a father-and-son bookmaker team with offices in Melbourne and Darwin. In April 2014, they sold the website to global betting giant Ladbrokes Coral, and they continue to run the company today.
The brand Betstar comes from the same stable as Ladbrokes.com.au, Neds.com.au and Bookmaker.com.au. Here's how you can join Betstar using our exclusive sign up code.

Betstar always has multiple promotions available, which usually cater to horse racing and footy fans. For example, there is protest payouts and best odds guaranteed all for horse racing, along with several footy specials which are only available to members who are logged in.
One offer which caught our eye was the ‘favourite vs field’. In thoroughbred, harness, or greyhound racing, if you think the favourite might be beaten, you can increase your chance of beating them by backing the whole field against the market leader in one simple bet.
Many of the promotions found at Betstar are time-sensitive and most apply only to single match or event. For that reason, it’s good to strike while the iron is hot. If you wait around, they might be gone!

- Live streaming of multiple sports from around the globe
- Multi Maker betting tool built into the Betstar mobile app
- Wide range of racing, sports and novelty betting options available
- In-play telephone betting
