McBookie Casino Review

Review last updated - January 2021.

OVERVIEW | 4.36/10

McBookie is a Scottish themed casino and sportsbook brought to the market by the Star Racing Group - they share a license with Star Sports Bet and NE-bet. They are licensed by the UKGC  in the United Kingdom and they have appointed IBAS as their ADR under their United Kingdom License. They offer a limited range of games - around 400 from: Big Time Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Inspired Entertainment, NextGen Gaming, 1x2Gaming and Barcrest across categories such as: Slots, Table and Video Poker games. The McBookie  home page features a colour palette of: navy and white with apple green accents; their logo is their name in white block capital letters with a Celtic style narrow font and the dot above the "i" has been replaced with a white thistle.


McBookie were bought from Bet Victor by Star Racing Ltd and their approach to complaints management looks to be more positive under this new ownership.

McBookie is now owned and operated by Star Racing Limited and they seem to be taking a more player centred approach to their customer service which bodes well for players.

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.
