StarSports is an established, independent bookmaker that offers a complete online sportsbook and a range of exclusive services for its discerning customers. 

StarSports was founded in 1999 by a small group of on-course horse racing bookmakers. At that time it was called Star Racing but the company rebranded in 2009 to become known as Star Sports.

This bookmaker is licenced and regulated by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and it has a solid reputation among punters. StarSports offers exclusive boutique services, such as credit and debit betting accounts, in addition to a hedging facility for other bookmakers.

Promo Code


The StarSports promo code is NEWBONUS. This is the only code you should use when you open an account. Up to £50 money back on selected sports betting events is available when you join using this code.

How to Join


Before you can claim this money-back free bet promotion, you need to open a new account. Here's how you do that

  1. Go to StarSports.bet 
  2. Hit the ‘Sign Up’ button to bring up a short three-part registration form
  3. Complete this form to create your account.
  4. When asked for a Star Sports promo code, type in the code NEWBONUS.
  5. Check out the latest promotions
  6. Get money back and free bets offers with the up to £50 specials

All Star Sports promotions are optional. You are under no obligation to accept them if you don’t feel the offer is appropriate for the bets you like to place.

Betting Offers


As emphasised above, Star Sports isn’t the type of bookmaker that throws around lots of promotional offers to attract your attention. However, that doesn’t mean it’s a blank book either.

Pipped by a neck (flat) or half a length (jumps) on all ITV live races is popular among horse racing bettors. This offer gives you your stake back as a free bet if your win bet just gets beaten. More free bets are available for other sports. For instance, in Saved by the 90s, you get a free bet if there is a goal in the 90th minute of the football match you bet on.

Why Take These Offers?


Put simply, the majority of offers that relate to free bets are worth exploring. As long as the requirements to obtain the free bet are reasonable, you have nothing to lose by attacking these offers. 

Free bets, and top prices (something else which Star Sports is renowned for), are a great way to increase your bankroll without exposing yourself to increased risk. If you research good selections and bet smart, this can be a profitable pastime.

Betting Products


Star Sports may be a newer name to many but this is not a new bookmaker. For that reason, it comes packed with unique products and features that separate it from other betting sites. Among them are:

  • Exclusive debit and credit betting accounts and hedging services
  • Market leader in telephone betting
  • Trader chat allows punters to talk prices with the people who matter.
  • Davy Russell and Adam Kirby share racing tips and predictions every weekend.
  • Pre-match and live betting on more than 25 sports
  • iOS and Android mobile apps

Payment Options


It’s a rather old-school set of payment options. For some reason, Star Sports is yet to accept eWallets. Therefore, these are the methods you can currently use:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Bank Transfer
  • Cheque

Note: UK customers are unable to fund their betting account via credit cards. Both Visa and Mastercard highlighted above relate to their debit card products only.
