StanJames Review & Free Bet
Back in Oxfordshire, 1973, in a small betting shop, a real home-grown British brand was established and it went by the name of James, Stan James. Bond jokes aside, the company has developed into a spectacular online sports betting website some 40 years later, that players from all over are joining to get in on the action.
Instead of just a run of the mill sportsbook, Stan James offers their players a shot at poker, a casino, games and even a live casino that can all be accessed from the one account, making now a better time than ever to sign up.
Website –Layout & Interface:
Stan James’ choice of layout is somewhat similar to what you would expect from an online sportsbook with a few welcomed changes. Starting off with their colour scheme, Stan James has chosen a black background, which the homepage is sat on, and has used a warm green throughout the website which gives it a friendly, inviting look.
The Stan James logo is found in the top left-hand corner and above this is a small menu featuring links to the help section, live chat and here is where players can also change how the odds and language are displayed throughout the site. On the right of this menu is where players and existing customers can sign up or login and Stan James has conveniently tucked their bet slip away here, this means that it is out of sight until it is needed, where it appears anchored to the top right of the players’ screen.
Underneath the login section is the main navigational menu that you will be using here, players can manoeuvre around their casino, games, poker, bingo and live casino effortlessly and return to the sports book whenever they desire.
On the right-hand side of the page is a menu that descends downwards and features a few important sections, such as the In-Play section. Here is where players will find a link to bet on their favourite sports during live play, as well as a promotions tab, quick links section and a fully comprehensive list of sporting markets that are to be found at Stan James.
On the right-hand side of the page is a few advertisements of what is to be expected at the various other sections of Stan James, such as roulette, a bingo welcome offer and a couple of other promotions.
Another reason to consider Stan James as your new sportsbook of choice is their diverse list of sports markets. They have seemingly covered everything and players will have access to the likes of American Football, Baseball, Aussie Rules, Athletics, Basketball, Bowls, Beach Soccer, Cycling, Cricket, Boxing, Darts, Golf, Football, Field Hockey, Hurling, Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Gaelic Football, Handball, Netball, International Rules, Ice Hockey, Motorsport, Rowing, Novelty, Netball, Pool, Swimming, Rugby League, Snooker, Rugby Union, Volleyball, Ten Pin Bowling and Tennis.
We took the Stan James betting markets into consideration and found them to be well above average, with football having favourites like Double Chance, Draw No Bet, First Team to Score, Last Team to Score, Total Goals, Exact Total Goals, Which Half Most Goals, Total Goals O/U, Half-Time/Full-Time, Handicaps, 1st / 2nd Half Result and plenty more.

One you’ve finished with the welcome bonus, Stan James has a few things in store for you, such as their golf accumulator insurance, daily horse racing offers, best odds guaranteed across all UK & Irish horse racing events, as well as the option to live stream some of your favourite horse races.
We loved what Stan James presented us as their in-play betting console; in fact it is one of the most complete ones out of all that we have seen. Players can even add sports to their favourites tab, so as to save time in future.
Stan James offer live betting options for a variety of different sports, including Football, Cycling, Golf, Baseball, Snooker, Tennis, Basketball and Cricket. Upon inspecting their betting markets we found them to carry the same standards as those that can found in the regular markets, which is a good sign.
Mobile & Tablet:
There isn’t currently a mobile betting application that is exclusive to Stan James, however, players can still visit the website from a mobile or tablet for a fully optimised version of Stan James that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. This enables players to get their hands on all of the great offers, markets and even their fantastic in-play console, all within the palms of your hands and download free.

Take a bow Stan James’ customer support team who is on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to aid customers with any questions or queries they might have. The team can be contacted via live chat, email, post or by a free phone telephone number, for players within the UK.
