WinStar Casino Review
Introduction
Introduction

Look no further if you want an online casino that keep things reassuringly simple

Gambling is a fun past-time, one that allows you to play some great games and (hopefully) win some money. But it’s not a lot of fun having to waste your free time looking for an online casino that has what you need – if you’re looking for a gambling experience that has all the basics, then WinStar Casino is what you need.

WinStar Casino has over 500 games that cover slots, roulette, blackjack, and more. It also has an app with an impressive number of titles, along with a customer support team that’s quick to answer any questions that you have.

We think that WinStar Casino gets the gambling basics right and we’re sure you’ll feel the same way too.

WinStar Casino Games   

Once you’ve created your WinStar Casino account, you’ll be able to pick from well over 500 titles. This includes roulette, blackjack, video poker, jackpots, live casino, and exclusive slots.

Unsurprisingly, slots dominate. However, there is a reasonable selection of titles for the other major casino game types – video poker leads the way with an impressive 30 titles for you to pick from.

After creating your WinStar Casino account, you’ll be able to pick from the following games:

CARD, TABLE, & SLOT GAMES

LIVE CASINO

Roulette

Live Roulette

Blackjack

Live Blackjack

Online Slot Games

Live Poker

Retro Slots

Live Dice

Video Poker

Live Lucky 7

 

Live War Of Bets

 

Summary

While the standard casino games are covered (roulette, slots, blackjack, and poker) WinStar Casino offers little beyond this and its approach to games selection feels a little off. For example, while it’s nice to be able to play a live dice game, there are no craps titles – surely, if you’re going to have a dice game, it should be the most popular casino dice game?

Overall, it’s fair to say that WinStar Casino gets the basics right, but it doesn’t go any further than this in the selection of games it offers.

WinStar Casino Review: Game Experience

NetEnt provides a number of the games you’ll find on WinStar, particularly the live casino games. As a software company renowned for both its live casino and slots games, you can be sure you’ll get a good experience when playing these games. A few of the top titles made by NetEnt are:

l  VIP Blackjack – Live

l  Starburst

l  Common Draw VIP Blackjack – Live

l  Guns N' Roses

l  Roulette Pro – Live

Once you’ve set up your WinStar Casino account and downloaded the app, you’ll be able to choose from the following games:

WinStar Casino Slots

With 521 (at the most recent count) titles to pick from, it’ll take you a long time to make your way through all of the slots available from WinStar Casino.

You get a good spread between the industry leading titles, such as Starburst and Guns N' Roses, plus crowd pleasing fruities like Cherry Trio and Dazzle Me. The slot games we most enjoy playing at WinStar Casino are:

l  Gems Gems Gems

l  Hot Shots

l  Starbust

l  Huge Goal

l  Battleship: Direct Hit

Call us corny, but our favourite slot game from WinStar’s catalogue is Huge Goal. It’s a sports slot that has a light-hearted feel and simple gameplay. You can get a glimpse of Huge Goal by checking out the screenshot below:

WinStar

WinStar Casino Blackjack

WinStar Casino has 12 blackjack games – 10 online titles and 2 live casino titles. While there’s little in the way of diversity (most are a variation on the classic blackjack games you’ll find at most online casinos) the standard of the titles is very high – particularly for the live games, which are made by NetEnt. Our top five blackjack titles are:

l  Pro Blackjack

l  VIP Blackjack – Live

l  Blackjack Classic

l  Common Draw VIP Blackjack – Live

l  Blackjack Multihand

It’s difficult to pick just one blackjack game to recommend at WinStar Casino, but not impossible. That game is VIP Blackjack. As we said, it’s made by NetEnt, and that says all you need to know about its quality. You can see for yourself by looking at the image underneath:

WinStar

WinStar Casino Roulette

As a gambling favourite, you’re right to demand a good selection and standard selection of roulette titles from WinStar Casino. With 18 titles to pick from, there’s a solid number of games. The question then is whether they have the standard and diversity to keep you happy. The answer is yes.

All the classic online roulette games are there – with French, American, and European roulette all getting a title. There are also a couple of more left field games, with Key Bet Roulette, Roulette 3D, and Double Bonus Spin Roulette all offering something a little different. And if that wasn’t enough, there are two live titles from NetEnt – Roulette Pro and Roulette. Our top titles are:

l  French Roulette

l  Roulette Pro – Live

l  Double Bonus Spin Roulette 

l  Roulette – Live

l  Roulette 3D

While the standard of roulette games is very good, there’s one game we think really stands out – Roulette Pro. It has the slickness you’d expect from NetEnt and really looks the part too, as you can see in the image below:

WinStar

WinStar Casino Poker

It’s no secret that poker is one of the most popular casino games – millions of people play it across the globe and it features in countless Hollywood films. With this in mind, it’s of real importance that WinStar delivers the goods in its poker offering. Thankfully, it does.

There are 30 video poker titles for you to choose from. These provide an excellent range of game types, from Ultimate Texas Hold’em to Red Dog Progressive, meaning there’s something for pretty much every type of poker fan. There’s just 1 live title, Bet On Poker, but it’s a good one. Our five favourite poker games available at WinStar are:

l  Three Card Poker

l  Jacks Or Better

l  Bet On Poker – Live

l  Joker Wild

l  All American

It wasn’t hard to pick a favourite poker game. Bet On Poker makes a great effort at replicating the fun you get from a live poker game, but includes a couple of the features you don’t get from a live casino – for example, showing the hand strengths and values is a real bonus. Check out the image underneath to see what you can expect from Bet On Poker:

WinStar

If you want an online casino that has a great selection of video poker games then you’ll love WinStar Casino. Create your WinStar Casino account today and you’ll be playing excellent video poker games within minutes.

WinStar Casino Mobile

Having an app is non-negotiable for an online casino – more people access the internet via their phone than their PC. But it’s not good enough to simply have an app – it needs to have the range of games and ease of gameplay that gamblers demand from an online casino’s website. So, how does WinStar Casino’s app fare?

The first thing to point out is that there’s a lag. You notice this when you select a game and then decide you want to play another one – for example, shifting from roulette to blackjack. While this is annoying, it's not too disruptive.

The second thing to mention is that WinStar Casino’s app has less titles than the online version. This is to be expected and in many cases you still get a good selection to choose from (video poker has 17 games), and all of the game types are there – slots, blackjack, roulette, live casino, and video poker.

Our final point is on the gameplay. This is the most important detail in an online casino’s app and WinStar really delivers here. The graphics are crisp and the games run very smoothly, while the live casino games lose none of the atmosphere and interactivity you get online.

Summary

There’s not a lot that WinStar Casino does wrong with its games – there’s a solid selection, with a good variety, and you’ll struggle to find a title that has poor gameplay.

However, the overall impression is that WinStar Casino does little to distinguish itself from its competitors – it doesn’t have more of a certain game type than other casinos, and its games aren’t of a much higher standard than you’ll find elsewhere.

WinStar Casino Software

NetEnt is responsible for a large amount of the games you’ll find at WinStar Casino. This is great for slot players and fans of live gambling because NetEnt is renowned as one of the industry leaders in creating these types of games.

However, while many of the games in WinStar Casino’s catalogue are made by NetEnt, there are a number of other great software providers that are used. You can see the full list of software providers in the list below:

l  1x2Gaming

l  Ainsworth Gaming Technology

l  Betgames

l  Gamomat

l  IGT

l  iSoftBet

l  Konami Gaming

l  NetEnt

l  Real Time Gaming

l  SG Gaming

l  WMS

Gameplay is one of WinStar Casino’s strong points and it’s no surprise once you’ve seen the list of providers used by the online casino. We have nothing bad to say about the software used by WinStar Casino and we’re sure you won’t either.

Points

Slots

1 point per £5 wagered

Keno, Roulette, & other fixed-odds games not otherwise specified

1 point per £10 wagered

Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps, and Poker

1 point per £25 wagered

 

Your WinStar points can be spent in WinStar Casino’s Star Store. Your points also help you move from tier to tier in WinStar Casino’s loyalty scheme.

However, despite our best efforts, we were unable to find any further information on either WinStar Casino’s loyalty scheme tiers or its Star Store. This is because every web page that makes reference to these two things is broken – trying to open them brings up a blank web page.

Ad-hoc bonuses 

WinStar Casino offers a selection of ad hoc bonuses in its promotions page. These seem to be heavily weighted towards free spins (when we checked, all the ad hoc bonuses were for free spins). The sort of ad hoc bonuses you can expect from WinStar Casino include:

l  310 spins for August

l  Welcome bonus of up to £250 & 100 free bonus spins

l  Win with every spin on the Blackstar slots game

Please be aware that the above promotions come with the following conditions in order to meet UK compliance law:

T&Cs apply

Summary

WinStar Casino’s welcome bonuses are okay – while it offers both a cash bonus and free spins, it’s a lot less generous than you’ll get from some other leading online casinos. The ad hoc bonuses seem fine too, although they are heavily geared towards slots. Where WinStar really falls down, however, is in its loyalty scheme.

While we’re aware that WinStar has a loyalty scheme and that it rewards players by giving them points for money wagered, the casino doesn’t publish any more information on its scheme. This means we can’t tell you what you can exchange your points for and how many you need to move from tier to tier.

WinStar Casino betting limits 

Summary

We scoured the web and then asked WinStar Casino’s live chat team for the betting limits of its games. However, we were informed by WinStar Casino’s live chat team that there is no list of the betting limits for its games – something we found disappointing.

With this in mind, we looked at some of the online casino’s 500 plus games titles to get an idea of the betting limits. These are some of the key points we noted

Slots – minimum bet is often £2

Roulette – Roulette Pro has a minimum bet of £5 but max of £400,000!

Blackjack – online games can be between £1 and £500

Poker – bets can start from as little as £0.20

WinStar Casino RTP Figures

RTP is short for “return to player.” It’s the way that gamblers establish how likely they are to win at a casino game – we’ll use an example to demonstrate.

If a casino game has an RTP of 97% then this means that £97 of every £100 wagered is returned to players by the online casino in the long run. This means that the casino would have a house edge (advantage over the gamblers) of 3%.

Because of this, RTP is one of the most important things that gamblers should use to decide which online casino to spend their money at – after all, why would you choose to gamble at an online casino where you don’t have a good chance of winning some money?

Summary

Despite our best efforts (including asking the live chat support team) we were unable to find a list of the RTP for WinStar Casino’s games – indeed, the support team confirmed that there is no list for the games and that you need to check each individual one to get the RTP.

This means that we simply cannot say how good or bad the overall RTP is for WinStar Casino’s games catalogue. However, the fact that WinStar doesn’t publish a list of its games’ RTP doesn’t leave a great impression.

WinStar Casino deposit and withdrawal options

The deposit and withdrawal options are one of the least interesting but crucial parts of an online casino – you need both to play your favourite games and to collect your winnings.

While WinStar Casino doesn’t have a huge list of options for making deposits and withdrawals, it does cover the major providers – the full list is below:

WinStar Casino ambassadors and sponsors

As a new online casino, it’s no surprise to find that WinStar Casino doesn’t have any ambassadors and sponsors – at least, not that we could find.

However, WinStar Casino is the online version of the famous WinStar World Casino Resort and in 2018 it signed a very famous sponsorship deal.

In 2018, WinStar World Casino Resort became the official sponsor of the Dallas Cowboys, the world’s richest sports team.

WinStar customer support

We speak from experience when we say that it’s not always possible to find what you need from an online casino – indeed, there were several times when that happened to us during the course of this review.

When this happens (and hopefully it doesn’t happen to you) it’s essential that there is a good customer service team there to help, and that you can get in touch in the way you want to.

There are three ways that you can get in touch with WinStar Casino’s customer support team:

l  Live chat

l  Telephone

l  Email

We needed to speak to WinStar Casino’s customer support team on a few occasions and we choose to do so via the live chat option. We can confirm that you do get a quick response and the team is pretty helpful. This means that, overall, we’re pretty pleased with WinStar Casino’s customer support.
