Calling all sports bettors. PokerStars announces launch BetStars brand

There's something we'd like to introduce you to. It's called BetStars, and it's the next stage in the evolution of online sports betting from PokerStars.

We constantly seek to be the best at everything we do, and we think our new sports betting service is unlike any you might have used before. And from today you get to find out why.

Here are a few of the BetStars features you can expect:

Let's start with the basics. BetStars is available on desktop, mobile and tablet, with dedicated iOS and Android Apps. So wherever you happen to be, you're only a couple of clicks from your account and a great betting experience.


The choices you'll find are second to none. You'll never be short of a market to have some interest in. BetStars offers a wide range of markets, everything from American Football to Volleyball. You can also expect to find a wide range of special betting markets, such as those on eSports and live poker events.

We also pride ourselves on our In-Play experience, which is why we think you're going to love our dedicated In-Play page, as well as the Cash Out options for single and multiple bets.

BetStars offers all of this as a seamless experience between Sports betting, Casino and Poker. No need to transfer money between accounts. You'll have access to your account from a single wallet.

That's just a glimpse at what you'll find on BetStars, which you can try yourself from today. But as well as features, we'll have regular exclusive promotions to ensure you get maximum value.

What do they include?

Acca Insurance - After all that work with an accumulator, you deserve some sort of consolation when one leg lets you down. If that happens in your six-leg (or more) football accumulator we'll give you your money back.

Bore Draw Money Back - It happens, the game that ends as a dreary 0-0 draw. Well consider this promotion an insurance policy. If your game ends goalless in any of the big European Football Leagues, we'll give you your money back.

Money Back Specials - Near misses and "bad beats" are part of sports betting, but we intend to make them a little easier, with regular offers on regular money back offers.

Enhanced Odds - We're going to be offering these special enhanced odds daily on big televised games.

We're excited to announce this next phase of development of PokerStars' new sportsbook offering, along with upcoming innovative features and promotions that we think will distinguish BetStars from its competitors.

Check out BetStars today at to get a first glimpse. As a special welcome if you make a £5 bet we'll give you £20 in free bets, whether you're a new or existing PokerStars customer.

You can keep up to date with BetStars, as well as promotions, the best odds and the latest sports and betting news by following BetStars on Facebook and on Twitter.



That's the introductions done. Now it's over to you.
