Starsports Mobile App – review of betting app for iOS & Android (2022)
The Star Sports mobile app has a colour scheme which gives it a calmer and more elegant look. This paired with the excellent functionality and intuitive useability of the app makes it a great piece of kit. Overall the Star Sports app experience is a joy with each feature easy to find and simple to use.
The starsports mobile site is identical to the app in every way. It functions in exactly the same way with the same colour scheme, layout and features to the app.
Mobile App overview
The first key feature that you notice on the app is the “next off” section. This section is specifically focused on Greyhound and Horse racing with the option to switch between the at the press of a button. There is also a swipeable section showcasing all the upcoming events and that is located in the top right corner of the screen. This section is especially helpful if you are looking for a specific event that you want to bet on in a hurry.
Following on from this is the “in play” section. This section displays every single sporting event offered by Star Sports that is currently available for you to bet on as it takes place. As well as this the live odds are displayed on the right hand side which update frequently with a red or green triangle in the corner of the box indicating whether the odds have worsened or improved. Even further down the page are the “Starting soon” events. These events are starting the same day that you are viewing the page (or within 24hrs).
They next have a small section about the Starsports casino to break the page up and this is followed quickly by the current feature events. This section acts similarly to the “Popular events” section features on most other Apps or sites. This section shows the current popular or main events. These would be events such as Premier league football matches, the Grand National horse race or a PGA tour golf tournament about to start in the next few days.
At the bottom of the app there is a bar divided into 4 different sections. It starts with the A-Z sports, a section which as the name suggests allows you to look thorough the full list of sports available to be bet on at Star Sports in an alphabetical order. Next along is the Casino section which provides you with quick and easy access to that section where you can play Slots, Blackjack and Roulette. The in play section is linked to again next and then finally there is the ”promos” section showing you every current bonus offer, as well as other promotions or special features that may be available to you!

Key features of the app
Cash out is a popular feature which most large bookmakers offer. It allows you to close a bet before the event is over. This allows you to potentially guarantee a profit if the bet is currently winning, at the cost of a slightly reduced reward. It can also function to decrease any potential losses and pull out of a bet early allowing you to lose less than having it ride to its conclusion. This function allows you to operate in a lower risk / lower reward way. To access the cash out feature locate the my bets section in the top right corner of the app and then navigate along to cash out.
Live betting in-play
Live betting allows you to bet on an event as it is taking place. This allows you to make informed decisions as to the outcome of an event while it is still underway. Obviously as events unfold on the pitch, or court, or field, then the odds available to bet on also update live. This means that odds that were at one point unfavourable can quickly change to the new scenario and become value. In play betting is seen as a quicker, more fast paced and more exciting form of betting.
