Stan James Review

  • Updated: March 25, 2014
  • Stan James has been one of the most popular sports-betting brands in the UK since the company opened its first shop back in 1973. The firm has grown over the years and is now one of the most recognized online betting and gaming entities in the world. Stan James now has close to 100 retail outlets in Britain and still calls Abingdon, Oxfordshire its home even though the online operations are regulated and ruled in Gibraltar.

    Stan James is known for value prices and innovative markets and were the first online betting site to introduce the popular live in-play format. The site, which is available in English and Greek, also features a convenient mobile network, a poker room, casino, live-dealer casino, video streaming and live commentary. The list of sports available for wagering is quite an impressive one with all the mainstream options available as well as several lower-profile sports and events. You can also wager on popular television shows and political events here.

    The casino features a few hundred popular video and table games including blackjack, poker, craps, roulette, and baccarat. The poker room is also just as popular with its regular tournaments, promotions, and loyalty rewards. But whatever section of the site tickles your fancy you need just one account to access them all and you’ll discover welcome bonuses in each area.


    The Stan James customer service team guarantees their clients can always speak with a friendly, experienced representative at any time of the day and night 365 days a year. In addition, if you can’t access the internet for any reason you can always make a wager over the phone at the call center. The customer support squad can be reached by mail, email, live chat, and toll-free phone numbers.

    The odds formats offered are American, decimal, and fractional while there are numerous currency choices for making deposits. The banking methods include Paypal, Neteller, all major credit and debit cards, Electron, paysafecard, Laser, Skrill/Moneybookers, and Bank Transfers. Stan James is also known as an industry leader when it comes to timely, safe and secure payouts.

    The odds margins are among the best for most sports, especially in the UK. In the live in-play betting section the handicaps and prices are updated almost instantly. The site takes care of the mechanics while you can focus on the event at hand. You can also check out all Irish and British horse and greyhound races via the live-streaming room.

    The technology used to protect your privacy is SSL (Secure Socket Layer) which means you can go about your online business worry-free. Stan James is one of the most reliable online gambling/gaming sites you’ll find. The only problem is residents of the USA, Belgium, France, and Japan aren’t allowed to create accounts with them and the website could be cleaned up a bit to make it easier to navigate.
