Betstar Begin New "Exciting Chapter" With Ladbrokes Link-Up
April 09, 2014
Betstar have today announced that they are joining forces with Ladbrokes, in what they call the “Beginning of an exciting chapter” for the company and its customers.
However, the online bookmaker – founded in 2007 – was keen to stress that the Betstar brand will continue and accounts made with the company will remain unchanged. This means that, on top of all of the new features that Ladbrokes will introduce, you can still take advantage of Betstar’s fantastic $500 welcome bonus offer as well.
Simply open a Betstar account and make your first deposit with them. Then, just bet through the whole amount at odds of at least 1.5 – within 30 days of joining – and Betstar will match 20% of your first deposit amount with up to $500 free bets.

Betstar revealed in a statement that the decision was taken to merge with Ladbrokes, despite interest from a number of other suitors.
A Betstar spokesperson said: “We are excited to do a deal with Ladbrokes – as their product offering and technology are world class and their innovative nature and values are aligned with our own. All of which, I have no doubt will be well received by the existing Betstar membership base.
“Ladbrokes have been in the game since 1886 and have a strong and clear vision to become a key player in the Australian market and their acquisition of Betstar is a vital piece of this vision. The new link-up will also see an improvement to Betstar’s service and allow them to take on some of the popular features that Ladbrokes offer to their own customers.
“While it marks the end of an era for the Betstar team, it’s the beginning of an exciting chapter for our members, who can only benefit from the amazing resources at Ladbrokes’ disposal.
“What you can look forward to is increased product, a new website and mobile site and – of course – access to the Ladbrokes ATM withdrawal offering.
“So sit tight, stick with Betstar and look forward to the many innovations that are on the horizon.”
