Star Casino is the arm of the Betsson AB Group that is aimed firmly at the Italian market as it meets all the regulations under Italian law and is regulated by the Italian government. Only residents of Italy can access the site and create accounts, while the site plus all support is carried out in Italian also. All games on-site are provided by NetEnt, but what does Star Casino have to offer its target audience?
Games at StarCasino
Italian players have very limited options when it comes to online casino gambling due to the stringent laws in place by their government and, as such, Star Casino offers just a single way to access the NetEnt provided content available via its instant play, browser based software. Players can play at the number of slots, table games and video poker variants available.
The site is not the most filled online casino we have reviewed with a total of 94 games available on site, including the eight versions of live blackjack, roulette and baccarat games with both European and Italian dealers. The majority of the games available at Star Casino are slot games with almost 2/3rds of the site offerings being slots, but with NetEnt's biggest games of Starburst, Gonzo's Quest and Jack and the Beanstalk plus another 58 slots all available there is plenty of choice for Italian fans of slot gaming.
The final 33 games available on site come from the live and virtual table games with blackjack and roulette having their own separate filters on the home page while the baccarat variants and casino poker games are all filed away under Table Games. There is a handful of video poker games available, including the jacks or better and deuces wild versions of the game, too.
Overall, despite the low number of games there is still plenty of variety available for players at Star Casino. This is added to as well as the site is taking part in the 2015 International Slots Challenge and offers a number of daily casino tournaments where players can win cash prizes from the buy-in pool.
