Betstars joins the ESSA membership body

23 Feb 2017

Betstars EssaIt is all about integrity for Betstars - Essa, who tries to rise up through all the legitimate ways. Their most recent successful try was that they were added to the International betting integrity body ESSA. After the inclusion of BetStars, ESSA’s current membership has reached the 25 regulated betting operators covering many of the leading international brands. Betstars will help ESSA fight the match fixing problem, while Amaya’s betting subsidiary will also help at the distribution of vital information to relevant regulators and sporting authorities to take any action if deemed necessary.

Khalid Ali, who is the Secretary General of ESSA, commented on the Betstars’ addition: «BetStars’ decision to join ESSA is excellent news for all concerned and another important milestone for the association. Backed by Amaya, one of the world’s largest gaming groups with 108 million registered customers, the addition of BetStars brings clear advantages for ESSA and its alert platform. Whilst BetStars will benefit from access to a growing and effective operator run network focused on protecting its members’ businesses from fraud.».

BOOK SPY BONUS REVIEW

A few years back, the number 1 poker room globally added a sports section called ‘Betstars’, which, in 2021, was rebranded to Pokerstars Sports. To be honest, reviewing the sportsbook left me with mixed feelings. On the one hand, being operated by the largest group in the world and holding several Tier 1 licenses means that as a site it can definitely be trusted. There are hundreds of markets available to choose from in football and basketball, alongside multiple special bets. I also find the Spin and Bet feature very intriguing, where you can improve your odds up to ten times. On the other hand, I found quite a few areas where the offering needs to be improved. The overall payout is below par, especially for football bettors. The absence of a Live Chat is notable and deposit limits are low. In addition, having to move your funds manually from poker to sports is a little annoying. All in all, the betting offering is not great. I would use it mainly as complementary to the poker section.
