Casino Games

4.3/5

The games at NorthStar Bets can be divided into two categories: Casino titles and Live Dealer games. Within these, there are all sorts of top-range games that are supplied by some of the most well-respected providers in the industry.

Slots:

Players can pick from a selection of over 150 slots, that come from developers such as Playtech, Pragmatic Play, Big Time Gaming, and many more. Those who like themed games will find all sorts of slots that discover mythology, history, nature, fantasy, movies, or fruit themes, which come in all shapes and sizes. Players looking for the top prizes can head over to the jackpot games, where there are numerous games in the Fire Blaze series and the Age of the Gods series. Some of these have progressive jackpots, which are linked across several games and have top prizes ranging in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Table Games:

NorthStar Bets may have a modest selection of table games, but it covers all its bases. It has several types of Roulette and Blackjack, including Mega Fire Blaze Roulette, Age of the Gods Roulette, All Bets Blackjack, Free Chip Blackjack, and Spin till you Win Roulette.

Live Dealer Games:

NorthStar Bets offers four types of live dealer games: Live Blackjack, Live Roulette, Live Baccarat and Game Shows. You will also find a few jackpot titles such as Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack, Age of the Gods Bonus Roulette, and Mega Fire Blaze Roulette. If you are into live games, then it is also worth looking into variants of traditional casino games, such as Speed Baccarat, Quantum Roulette, All Bets Blackjack, and so on. The game show collection, whilst not massive, has some of the most popular titles in the genre, such as Buffalo Blitz Live, Adventures Beyond Wonderland and Deal or No Deal the Big Draw.

Sports Betting

4.4/5

As NorthStar Bets is a Canadian company, it knows its market well. It has an extensive sportsbook that covers over 25 different sports, as well as bets on TV events, esports, and the NorthStar Specials – which are always worth checking out. The best coverage is on hockey, basketball, soccer, and tennis. For these sports, punters will find lengthy lists of betting markets on single events.

It is disappointing that there are no horse racing or greyhound racing bets, which may turn away some punters. Apart from that, the sports betting at NorthStar Bets is extremely well-stacked and betting is easy. When creating a bet slip, there is also the chance to forge parlay bets or round robins, which can definitely come in handy.

NorthStar Bets gives esports bettors a great choice in their bet-making. It may only cover Call of Duty, CS:GO and League of Legends, but the games have handicaps, total and other bets – which is more than what you would normally get at bookmakers which aren’t specialized in the genre.

Lastly, NorthStar Bets also provides guides, news and podcasts for its sports bettors. These are related to hockey, soccer, basketball, baseball, golf, American football and tennis. It may or may not be useful for punters – but it is certainly a welcome addition.

Licensing and Regulation

5.0/5

iGaming Ontario (iGO) has collaborated with the Government of Ontario and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) to create a gaming market aimed at safeguarding consumers who gamble through private gaming companies.

North Star Bets holds a license issued by iGO. Casinos with this license are subject to rigorous monitoring to ensure game integrity, player protection, and responsible operations.

iGO has implemented strict regulations that gambling sites are required to follow. These rules aim to promote responsible gambling, protect vulnerable groups such as youth and self-excluded players, and improve game integrity.

  • VISA
  • MasterCard
  • iDebit
  • Interac

Before withdrawing money, you will need to verify your identity, but this is standard procedure at any online casino.

Customer Support

4.6/5

One of the main goals of NorthStar Bets is to provide leading customer service to its members. It has a team of professional agents who are available from 8AM to 1AM and can be reached via phone +1 (855) 218 – STAR (7827) or via email at [email protected]

There is also a live chat tool that can answer questions quickly. However, you may not necessarily need to use the live chat tool as the Help Centre is very helpful and has lots of information that may help you.

This is one of the few sportsbooks in Ontario to offer access to live chat, phone support, and email.

Mobile Availability

4.5/5

The NorthStar Bets website was designed with the purpose of running seamlessly on any device. Whether you want to play or bet on your desktop, a mobile device, or a tablet, you will find that there are no shortcuts taken in delivering the optimal gaming and betting experience.

Should you play on your mobile device or tablet more often, you may be interested in the NorthStar Bets mobile app. The app was designed specifically for comfort but without cutting out any features you may get otherwise. If you like to take your games on the go then it is a perfect option as you can jump straight into your favorite games in seconds. Sports bettors should also consider the app as those precious seconds that are saved can be crucial for placing a live bet or when you are trying to cash out an existing bet.

Summary

4.4/5

There are not many bad things to say about NorthStar Bets. Whilst it does not have the largest collection of casino games, the titles that it does have are carefully chosen. Gaming at NorthStar Bets is probably great fun, and the sports bets are also quite extensive. Punters can enjoy a large range of betting opportunities, and to crown it off they can experiment with all sorts of parlays, round robins, and so on.

It is worth noting though, that the lack of horse racing bets is quite a disappointment. There is a large demographic of horse racing bettors, but if you are not one of them, then it will not affect you in the slightest.

Combine the multitudes of betting and gaming options with the fantastic mobile app, and NorthStar Bets is a strong choice for gamers or punters.
