Betstar was originally an Aussie owned betting agency but in 2014 Ladbrokes, a global gambling industry giant, purchased the brand from the Eskanders. The Betstar brand has grown in popularity in recent years and they have realised how important it is for customers to have the ability to bet on the move. In our Betstar mobile app review we take a close look at the Betstar mobile app and reveal everything there is to know, both the good and bad. So, for those that are considering betting on the move with Betstar you will find all the info you need right here. Just keep on reading!
Betstar Mobile App Overview
Here at Aussiebet we always like it when the mobile app closely resembles the main desktop site in terms of design, colour scheme and layout. It helps if the app feels familiar, and we are happy to report that the Betstar mobile app closely resembles the Betstar desktop site. All the same sports and markets are available on the Betstar mobile app too, and that is a big plus.
It is also very important that the app is user-friendly and easy to use, and we had no complaints on those fronts with the Betstar mobile app. Pages load relatively quickly, menus are easy to locate and betting on the move is a simple process for users of the Betstar mobile app. The tailor-made native apps for iOS and Android devices work very well, as does the Betstar web-app for other devices.
The Betstar Multi Maker is another very useful facility that can be accessed via the Betstar mobile app and this enables punters to build multi bets quickly and conveniently. Online in-play betting is not permitted in Australia due to the Interactive Gambling Act, but Betstar display live odds across a wide range of sports on their mobile app and you simply pick up the phone and dial 1300 238 722 to place your wager.
The only real negative we could find with the Betstar mobile app was the lack of special markets for existing customers in comparison to some of their rivals.
