Mobile

The Betstar mobile sports book can be accessed either through a dedicated app or through your device’s browser. iOS users can download an iPhone or iPad app for free from iTunes, while Android smartphone and tablet users can download a free app from Google Play.

Alternatively, if you’re using another operating system, simply go to betstar.com.au in the browser of any hand-held device to access the full range of markets and events that are on offer on a fully mobile-optimised site.

Regardless of the method you use to access the mobile betting site, the overall user experience and the range of events on offer is outstanding. Whether you want to bet locally or abroad, on racing on sports, you get access to all of Betstar’s markets, as well as full functionality.

This means you can place bets, deposit and withdraw funds, and access other features like form guides and replays wherever you are. In addition, because your account is automatically synced, you can use the same login details no matter what device you play on or where you play.

Banking

Players have the opportunity to take up a free Betstar Visa Card, a pre-paid card that is linked to your Betstar account, meaning you can make deposits and withdrawals quickly and easily, but which can also be used like any conventional card at ATMs or to make purchases (including via Paywave). Winnings are available immediately as soon as a race or match finishes, and so there is no waiting for withdrawal requests to be processed or for banks to clear your funds.

Other payment methods that are accepted are Visa and MasterCared credit and debit cards, POLi and Flexepin pre-paid vouchers, PayPal, BPay, and direct bank transfer. This extensive range of options means that most Australian players will be able to find a convenient and accessible method of funding their Betstar accounts.

Different methods have different payout times, but funds are usually processed within 48 hours of a withdrawal request being made.
