An in-depth review of the bookmaker Betstar is now available. This comprehensive review is part of a series on betting agencies that are suitable for Australians. All reviews form part of the Bookmaker Reviews section on this website. A full survey of betting agencies can be found in the Betting Agencies section.
In summary, Ladbrokes plc’s 2014 takeover of Betstar represents yet another expansion of a UK betting giant into Australia, with the UK parent now owning three Australian licensed bookmakers. With the same markets and odds, Betstar is effectively now a clone of Bookmaker.com.au and Ladbrokes, but with different promotions and a different colour scheme. The website interface itself is state-of-the-art, with excellent betting functionality and a well-designed account management area. The betting selection is strong, with an especially large range of markets for the popular Australian codes. We also like the fact that bonus credit can be split up into multiple wagers rather than forcefully wagered in one hit. Due to the strong similarities with Bookmaker.com.au and Ladbrokes, we recommend you take a look at all three services and simply pick the one with the colour scheme you like best. If, however, you’re keen on the idea of the Ladbrokes prepaid VISA Card, then we recommend Ladbrokes because Bookmaker.com.au and Betstar don’t offer this feature.
