Casino Estrella: Not Recommended

Top Casinos: United Kingdom

Casino Estrella Casino

Players from United Kingdom cannot play at Casino Estrella casino.

Overview

Review last updated – March 2019.

Casino Estrella are part of the Starfish Media N.V. group run by the subsidiary M.T.M.Corp – Starfish Media N.V. has been operational since 2012.  Casino Estrella and its sister sites: Casino Extra, Lucky 31 and Dublin Bet are regulated in Curacao.  The casino offers a range of games by software providers: BetSoft, Play ‘N Go, Altea Gaming, Genii, Microgaming and Visionary iGaming.  The site design is understated and attractive with a sophisticated colour scheme of blue and silver and stars and sparkles featuring in the background.  The lay-out is sensible and the site is easily navigated.

Trustworthiness

 - 3 / 10

Casino Estrella are part of the Starfish Media group. This group of operators has denied multiple players has become non-responsive to player complaints after two cases came up where the operator refused to pay four figure balances due to the players having been from the same country and having won playing the same game. The assertion was that the players had engaged in fraud, but the players in question were not playing with bonus money and the operator failed to demonstrate any fault with the game (meaning that the House Edge should have been in effect and the players expected to lose).

Slots RTP

Casino Estrella only publish the House Edge/Return to Player (RTP) information for their Net Entertainment slots games.

Comp Points

Casino Estrella do offer a comp point program that primarily offers complimentary spins instead of cash. It does offer cash conversion for larger numbers of points, but is not clear on the accrual rates when playing different games and the information we do have would make this system substantially weaker than the standard Playtech comp point program.

Closing Thoughts

This group of operators became non-responsive to complaints when we pointed out that to justify non-payment based on fraud they would have to demonstrate that the players in question actually stood to benefit from their activities financially. With no bonuses in play and not established fault with the game, the only conclusion we could reach was that these players were lucky. Not paying on that basis is a very questionable practice.

Best Casinos: United Kingdom

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland sits to the north-west of mainland Europe. The United Kingdom shares a border with The Republic of Ireland and has coasts on the Atlantic Ocean, Celtic Sea, North Sea, Irish Sea and English Channel. The population of the UK is approaching the 67.6 million mark leading to a fairly densely populated land mass. The gambling sector in the United Kingdom is entirely regulated and licensed by the UKGC – the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. Should players resident In the UK wish to gamble with foreign based operators there is no history of this being treated as a criminal offence, but high levels of protection exist for UK residents playing with UK licensed operators.
