Stars Casino review summary


Stars Casino has got some pretty impressive credentials. The site is an offshoot of PokerStars, one of the biggest poker platforms in the world, and also has a deal with FoxBet as an official sports betting partner. Currently up and running in states such as New Jersey and Michigan, Stars Casino is already an impressive addition to the online gambling world.

Everything about the site feels professional and well thought-through, from the promotions constantly running to the smooth banking experience. The list of games isn’t the longest in the world, but it’s heavy on quality. We get into all of that and more in this Stars Casino review.

Pros

  • Regular leaderboard races for cash prizes
  • Instant cashouts
  • Access to PokerStars and FoxBet sportsbook
  • Bespoke selection of software providers like NetEnt and Play’n’Go

Cons

  • Smaller range of games
  • Slightly complicated customer support process

Software and range of games

4.5/5

Stars Casino has a lot of strengths, but if your idea of a great online casino is sheer volume in terms of games, this is not that site. Rather than fill its menu with thousands of different games, Stars has focused on providing a smaller number of high-quality gaming options. They come from a small group of reputable software providers, including NetEnt and Play’n’Go, and cover slots, table games, and live dealer tables.

Both the desktop site and the app are nicely designed: beginner friendly and smooth to use. Finding specific games is easy, and you can also break up the menu into subcategories using the filter buttons.


Slots

As is normally the case, slots are the most represented here, with more than 200 different games on the menu. This is on the lower side compared with some online casinos, but in our experience it’s more than enough. The majority of players wind up playing a smaller selection of their favorite games, and 200 interesting and diverse options are better than 1000 games that all feel the same.

Stars’ slots menu has classics like Stardburst and Gonzo’s Quest, along with regularly updated new releases, like Hypernova. There are Megaways, Infinity Reels, expandable grids and plenty more exciting features included. We also love the daily slot races, which we’ll cover in the bonuses section.


Table games

Stars Casino’s table game section includes 20 different tables in total, including multiple types of roulette and blackjack, craps and various poker games. The likes of keno, baccarat and bingo are unfortunately not included.

Despite the handful of absences, we really enjoyed every game we played at Stars Casino. For plenty of people blackjack, roulette and video poker is all they need in a casino, and Stars Casino does them better than most - including a wide range of limits from micro stakes up to nosebleeds.


Live casino

It’s the same story in the live section, with six tables in total. You’ll find blackjack, roulette, and baccarat along with some fun options. Lightning roulette introduces an RNG element into the classic game, so that certain numbers pay out with a multiplier. Auto-roulette is played with a real wheel but without a host. Infinite Blackjack lets you play even when there isn’t a seat free at the table. The live software worked great for us. The hosts were all ultra-professional, but also friendly and approachable.

Bonuses and promotions at Stars Casino

4.5/5

There are lots of good promos on the books at Stars Casino. We always like to see promotions for every type of player - brand new users, regular players, and more casual repeat players - and Stars nails this. There’s something for everyone.

Anyone who signs up is eligible for a welcome bonus. All you need to do is opt in and place a casino bet worth $1 after you sign up, and you’ll be given $50 in bonus cash. You’ll have seven days to complete the wagering requirements on your bonus, which is a little tighter than at other sites. You need to earn a total of 100 Redemption Points before you can withdraw, with different games earning Redemption Points at different rates. For example, betting $12 on roulette will earn one point. You can read about the different weights for every game in the bonus terms and conditions, but this is a great offer in our book.

Stars Casino also gives returning customers a bonus every single day when you bet at least $1 on casino games. You just need to opt in, and you’ll find a special mystery bonus chest waiting for you every day. It could contain anything from free spins or free bets to a deposit bonus or site credit. You can also buy additional chests using the promotional points you earn from playing real money games.

Finally, Stars has daily cash races, where a $500, $1000 or even $2500 prize pool is provided for everyone who plays a selected slot. The players who rack up the most points on the game in 24 hours earn a share of the prize. They’re a lot of fun! Before you claim, make sure you always check out the terms and conditions of any bonus.

Stars Casino banking options

4.8/5

Similar to promos, the best online casinos have banking methods that cover every type of player. Some bettors like tried and trusted payment methods, like credit cards or bank transfers. Others prefer e-wallets like PayPal or Skrill, while some want to be able to top up their accounts in convenience stores using PayNearMe or VanillaDirect.

Stars has all of the above. We tested out all the banking methods for our Stars Casino review, and each one worked just as described. Whether you’re using the desktop site or mobile app, the banking software is very smooth and simple to use.

Each of the methods has customizable limits for deposits and withdrawals. While deposits are more or less instant, withdrawal wait times vary with the method. E-checks and bank transfers can take between 3-10 days. If you’re looking for the fastest withdrawal methods, nearly instant cashouts are available with PayPal, Skrill and the PokerStars Play+ Card.

Security and fair play

4.5/5

The games at Stars Casino come from well-regarded software providers that have a lot of good will built up in the industry. The likes of NetEnt have agreements with third party testing labs, such as eCOGRA, who check all their games to make sure they are fair and secure. That’s more than good enough for us.

In terms of general site security and fair play, Stars Casino is locally regulated by the gambling authorities in each state. For example, in New Jersey, this body is the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and in Michigan, it’s the Michigan Gaming Control Board. Whichever state you’re playing in, you’ll see the license included at the bottom of the page.

Stars’ customer support is pretty good but could be better. You need to be logged in to your account before you can use the live chat service for one thing. You also need to fill out a Contact Support form and go through a virtual help bot before you reach a real person. We’d prefer instant access to live chat.

Mobile play

4/5

The Stars Casino app is downloadable for iPhones and Android devices from the App Store and Play Store. Casinos sometimes struggle to effectively manage all the functionality of a desktop site, but Stars Casino's more pared back platform makes a lot of sense as an app. It’s easy to use and the games look great on the smaller screen. You get exactly the same options with the app, including access to all the live dealer tables. All in all, a very positive experience.

Conclusion

4.5/5

Stars Casino has a lot of things going for it. The software for both the desktop site and mobile app is a dream to use, clean and modern without feeling too flashy. Getting your money in and out of your Stars Casino account couldn’t be much easier, and there are lots of great bonuses and promotions. And, if you’re into that kind of thing, when you sign up you automatically get access to the FoxBet sportsbook and PartyPoker, one of the best poker platforms in the world.

At around 300 different games, the gaming menu at Stars Casino is smaller than average for the top online casinos. This can be seen in a couple of ways. Some people will naturally opt for casinos with thousands of games and it’s true that there are some notable games lacking, like baccarat, keno, and bingo games. For others however, a consolidated menu of 300 excellent games is more than enough. Stars Casino might not be the biggest in terms of games, but it’s undoubtedly one of the best for its size.
