Stardust Casino was launched in 2021 by the hugely successful Boyd Gaming Corporation—and it was an instant hit. In New Jersey, Stardust was a full rebranding of the popular Betfair casino, while in Pennsylvania it was a brand-new venture.
The casino is available on pristine iOS and Android apps, offering a wide range of good games (especially the Evolution live dealer suite) and, perhaps most importantly, Stardust makes a real effort to protect players and maintain payout fairness.

Stardust Casino Bonus
Stardust Casino is a sub-brand of FanDuel Casino. If you really want bonuses, you should head on to FanDuel first. At Stardust, the promotions section is quite limited. Players from NJ and PA get bonuses on RNG Blackjack and selected live dealer games. We give a rating of 3.9/5.

Stardust Casino Games and Gaming Experience
The game library at Stardust Casino is awesome. You can choose between slots, jackpots, live dealer games, RNG table games, and whatnot! The only drawback is that the games are only available for Android and iOS users. You can’t access the platform from a desktop. Hence, our rating is 4/5.
Game Selection Score: 4.0
The games lobby at Stardust is easy to find and navigate. All games categories are permanently listed at the top of the page, with a nice filter for “new games”. Players can save any games at “favorites” and access these from the navigation menu. There’s a search bar for finding specific games or developers, and the ability to sort games alphabetically.
On mobile, the experience is equally seamless. There’s an easy-access menu with the same list of categories and filtering features. There are Android and iOS apps but players can also access the casino using any modern browser.
Something really neat is the localization attempts made by the casino. For example, New Jersey players will see the “Top 10 games in NJ” on the homepage, while Pennsylvania players will see their own curated titles.
Stardust Online Casino offers a typically wide range of games including video slots, jackpot games, live casino and RNG table games.
Stardust also runs its Stardust Social Casino where players get the full casino experience using virtual currency. In other words, it’s completely free to play. This is really valuable to experiment freely and enjoy gaming when money is tight. Since there’s no real money involved, the social casino can be accessed in all 50 states.
There are over 400 unique video slots to choose from in the Stardust lobby. Annoyingly you can’t filter by developer, slot type or theme—players just need to scroll manually or use the search bar. While we did ask support for a full games list, they were unable to supply one.
Stardust Casino is strangely coy about the exact developers licensed, but we can confirm there is a large catalog of games from NetEnt, Lightning Box, Big Time Gaming, SG Digital and Everi in addition to Stardust Exclusive games.
Stardust Casino offers a solid range of 35 table games that includes blackjack, roulette, baccarat, craps, dragon tiger, football studio, draw poker, casino hold’em and more.
The most impressive offerings are the ultra-realistic first person RNG games offered by Evolution. These use advanced graphics to create a similar immersive atmosphere as experienced in live dealer games.
The Jackpots selection at Stardust Casino features several big names, with Divine Fortune by NetEnt, Pixies of the Forest II by IGT and Scarab Link by Red Tiger Gaming among the 53 titles currently available in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The casino doesn’t share the current jackpot for any of these games until launching the title, which is disappointing—players should always be able to scan for their preferred jackpot size.
Stardust Live Casino
Evolution is one of the world’s leading live casino developers, and it’s their games making up the Stardust Live Casino library. There are 13 live tables of which 8 are dedicated to classic blackjack. There is also hold’em, three card poker, baccarat, unlimited blackjack and two roulette tables.
The Evolution games are outstanding: the dealers are absolute pros, the user interface is crisp and sleek, and the tables offer a generous range of bet limits.
The payment method structure at Stardust online casino is more or less similar to what we’ve seen with other regulated casinos. You get a wide variety with reasonable limits. We give the payments section 4.5/5.

Stardust Casino Support
Under the “Support” section of the mobile website, you can either visit the FAQ section or chat with an expert. The FAQ section is amazing as it contains all commonly asked questions and their answers. The chat also runs 24/7 to help with all gambling components under the FanDuel brand. We give it 5/5 for customer support.
Customer Service Score: 5.0
Our experience of the support
We were disappointed. To access live chat support, we had to navigate a rigid support bot (picking from limited options with no choice to “skip” to a real operator) and then verify our email address, before being placed 68th in the support queue.
This is because support is managed by FanDuel, which is responsible for many different sites simultaneously. It took nearly 15 minutes to get connected and, because the agents are covering so many platforms, most of our specific questions could not be answered. The queue length was similar for new enquiries.
Unfortunately there are no other support options listed on the website, something we confirmed over live chat.
Stardust Casino App
Stardust Casino’s real money app is available on both Google Play Store and Apple Store for download. If you’re not comfortable playing the game from browsers, just get the apps. The experience is identical to the web platform. A 5/5 score is justified.
Casino App Score: 5.0
Stardust Online Casino has created apps for both Android and iOS, accessible through Google Play and the App Store respectively. The Stardust casino app is very easy to use on both operating systems thanks to its simplicity: navigation is straightforward, there aren’t a million pages and the design is user friendly. The welcome bonus can be activated on mobile or desktop.
Stardust Casino Security and Reputation
The casino in question started its online journey in New Jersey. Now, it has expanded to Pennsylvania under the PA Gaming Control Board License. For its reputation, it deserves a 4.9/5 rating.
Reputation and History Score: 4.9
Stardust Online Casino is fully licensed in the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania and verifies the current location of players before granting access:
- Stardust Casino NJ – Licensed, the State of New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement
- Stardust Casino PA – Licensed, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board
The casino also maintains responsible gaming pages for New Jersey and Pennsylvania. These include descriptions of user tools, links to helpful resources and nonprofit organizations. Stardust Casino seems genuinely concerned with player wellbeing which we love to see.
Stardust also explains in detail its policies on random number generation and how they maintain absolute fairness of games. Finally, the online platform is SSL encrypted for maximum player security.
To manage your gambling impulses, Stardust Casino has a set of tools under the “Responsible Gambling” page. You’re free to set deposit limits, time limits, and spend limits. We give it a rating of 4.7/5 thanks to the ease of use and effectiveness of these tools.
