Mobile Rating and Conclusion
After learning StarSports has been operational since 1999, we were not surprised by the quality of its multiple betting products. However, in a climate where few develop apps, we were pleased to see they have taken the initiative to include them within their selection of available mobile products. What’s more, we were pleased by the layout, flexibility, visual and navigational qualities that have been incorporated into their design.
The only issue we came across, beyond our belief that the casino could offer more games, is the lack of deposit options. This is almost unseen in today’s market and left us a little confused as it limits members from having the freedom to fund their accounts using methods most are accustomed to using.
That said, the product and presentation overall are excellent, and with a little fine-tuning, it is more than capable of competing with larger, more established multi-platform betting sites. Therefore, it is appropriate to reflect this in our final rating, which for StarSports is as shown above.
