Sign-up Bonus

To attract new players StarWin Casino offers a deposit bonus of 100% up to a maximum of 100 credits. To qualify for the full bonus you must deposit 30 credits or more. This bonus is slightly below industry standards but competitive nonetheless.

The more you deposit the bigger the bonus. However, any deposit amount below 30 credits a bonus of 25% will be given. In other words if you deposit $20 you will receive a match bonus of $5. Play with $25.

Promotions

To be honest this is one area where we feel StarWin Casino can improve. We understand it is still a relatively new online casino and might not have the financial capacity to offer huge promotional offers. However, the online gambling industry is ultra competitive and players are forever looking for sites that offer them more bang for their buck.

Loyal players will receive daily or weekly cash back on losses. Unfortunately StarWin does not offer a comp points nor a VIP program which is disappointing at best. It does offer a ‘Refer a Friend Bonus’. For every depositing friend you refer you will receive a bonus of $€50. Your friend will also receive a bonus of $€30. 

From time to time the casino will update you pertaining to its latest game releases and promotions through its newsletter. 

wagering Requirements

You just registered an account with StarWin Casino and you’re good to go. You deposit $€100 and receive an extra $€100 (100% match bonus) from the casino in return. The match bonus will be added to your account automatically the moment you made a deposit. 

With any ”free” money given by the casino there are a set of wagering requirements attached to it that must be cleared first before you can withdraw your winnings. For the sake of fair gaming the play-through requirements attached to this bonus is 40 times. Before you can make a withdrawal you must stake 40x$100=$4,000.

Games that count 100% towards the completion of the wagering requirements are all slots, keno and scratch card games. Video poker only counts 10% whilst the remainder of the games count 0%. If you use the bonus to play video poker only you must stake $4000/10%=$40,000.

Progressives

If you are a serious player this is where the actions at! Betsoft and Microgaming offers some of the biggest progressive jackpots in the industry. at this stage StarWin offers 16 progressive jackpots. Suffice it to say that the Microgaming progressive jackpots are linked to its multi-million dollar progressive jackpot network.
