Review of the bookmaker PokerStars Sports from Legalbet
Pokerstars sports is a fully licensed and regulated online gaming site which is operated by Flutter, a trusted and very well established company which is behind many other leading brands. Originally started in 2001 the 20 year old company operates a poker, casino and sportsbook page.
Odds — bad
We calculated the margin for PokerStars by analysing the odds they offer and placed them into one of the following three categories:
From 1% to 5%: Good value
Over 5% to 7%: Average value
Over 7% to 10%: Poor value
We got our results by taking the "Match result" odds and also the over/under 2.5 goals odds for different matches in different football leagues. Getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.
PokerSpoets has an overall average margin of 9.31% for football and falls in the average category. In the first section with Premier League and Championship, the margin is at 9.45%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, the margin is at 9.28%. Finally, taking matches from around the rest of the world into account, the margin is at 9.21%.
Betting options — good
Range of Sports: Pokerstars offers a reasonable amount of sporting options for you to play with on their site. With a total of 27 sports (including their specials market) the choice is overall pretty decent. Although the list is relatively large it does lack much variation or alternative betting options with the only interesting or unusual market being the specials market. The special market mainly focuses on UK and French politics.
Range of Bets and Markets: The range of markets available on Pokerstars is massive. Although the vast majority of events have a market ranging anywhere from 40-150 markets (and this can fluctuate a lot depending on the popularity of events) some events can have all the way up to 280 markets which is a massive amount! This huge potential amount of markets and great average means that bettors of all kinds will have more than enough choice when it comes to finding and placing a bet.
Betting Limits: The betting limits vary on Pokerstars sports from sport to sport varying from £1,000,000 all the way to £10,000. The limits for individual sports can be found on the “maximum payouts” section located at the bottom of any page.
Live — normal
The in play betting experience on Pokerstars sports is overall as expected. With quickly updating odds and plenty of markets available on a great range of sports there is loads of choice when it comes to placing bets. Although there is a limited amount of live streaming the animations depicting events taking place are pretty good and show what is happening pretty well.
