Is it legal to bet at BetStars sportsbook in Arkansas?

Author: americangambler | Last Updated: May 21, 2019

BetStars is a sportsbook and online gambling platform that operates as part of Stars Interactive, a division of Canadian gaming and online gambling company, The Stars Group Inc.. However, BetStars remains unavailable to residents in Arkansas.

Arkansas has made fast progress on gaming laws since late 2018 and is in the process of passing legislation that would expand betting opportunities in the state. The Arkansas Racing Commission was put in charge of governing gambling within the state, which includes casino facilities at two (soon to be four) racetrack sites.

Sportsbooks and online betting apps are still going through a process of legislative approval in Arkansas, with the state expected to open its first sites at several casinos later in 2019. Daily fantasy sports wager sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings are available in the state, however.

BetStars’ sister company PokerStars functions as the flagship arm under The Stars Group’s umbrella and has helped cultivate a reliable name for the brand.

The BetStars app is available to download for both iOS and Android devices. You can also check out their promotions page for frequently updated offers in a wide range of sports.

BetStars also operates a program called Stars Rewards, allowing punters to build a progress bar by placing wagers, which yields free bets and StarsCoin currency to use in the Rewards Store.
