Casino Estrella Casino Review

Review last updated - March 2019.

OVERVIEW | 3.80/10


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.

Associated By Company


The below operators are run by the same company as this operator. This means that, for well regulated operators, self-exclusions or bonus bans may carry over to these properties. For poorly licensed, or unlicensed operators, it is good to know which other sites are being run by the same company, so you can avoid companies that have mistreated you in the past.

Other Associations


We believe the below operators to be associated with this operator in some fashion that is not immediately transparent. More information about these connections is usually available in the Trustworthiness section of the review.
