StarSports Review

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 licensed 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.

New users can sign up with the StarSports promo code NEWBONUS. Up to £50 money back on selected sports betting events is available when you join using this code.

StarSports Website & Login

StarSports is a fairly old brand and the website could do with a little modernisation. Despite the look of it, everything is easy to access and there are plenty of sporting markets for users to delve into. 

This brand covers all UK and Ireland horse races as well as a selection of international meeting from the USA, South Africa and France. However, it doesn’t offer much from Australia or New Zealand like other bookmakers do. The betting markets are win, each way, forecast and tricast - which can be straight or reversed.

In StarSports' football sections, punters can choose between 120 leagues and cup competitions from all over the globe. England is the best supported country (as you would expect) with all four top divisions plus it offers the Ryman League, Conference and Pro-Development League among others.

If you like greyhound racing, this brand delivers every single race from the UK and Ireland. Moving to action from overseas, you have all the top American sports such as NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL are available for your betting pleasure. There’s plenty of tennis, golf, rugby, cricket and Aussie rules, too. Market depth could definitely be stronger, with many of these sports way off what you can find elsewhere.


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.

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

StarSports Mobile App

There is a StarSports mobile app available. Users can download this app for iOS and Android mobile devices.

StarSports Withdrawals & Deposits

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.
