Stan James Bookmaker Review

Stan James began life as a single independent betting shop in Oxfordshire in 1973. They grew steadily opening a number of betting shops in the mid-south heartland of the UK during the next three decades and took the major step when opening a telephone betting operation in Gibraltar at the turn of the century.  This famously led to them becoming the first bookmaker to offer and accept bets ‘in-play’ Check out the latest Stan James free bet offer for new accounts via this link:


About Stan James online

Online Stan James showed its trademark steady growth and acquired Betdirect, merging it with their own business in 2009, and they also took over and merged Betterbet into their online business.

However, in September 2015 Unibet bought Stan James’ online business (but not their betting shops) and it is the Swedish company that now owns and operates

High-Street Presence?

Stan James have a bigger fleet of betting shops than ever, they have spread beyond their traditional heartland and are venturing far and wide across the British Isles.  However, Stan James shops and Stan James online are now separately owned businesses.

Bells & Whistles

There is very little, if anything, missing from Stan James Online.  Concessions found at other major online sportsbooks with a High St. presence are all here:  There’s bonus winnings and ‘double the odds’ for one winner on Lucky 15’s, 31’s and 63’s and ‘best odds guaranteed’ on UK and Irish racing.  Plus you can watch those races streamed live on to your PC or mobile device once you have placed a bet of just £1.

Topping all of this off is a Stan James Blog which majors in, you guessed it, horse racing. Trainers Richard Hannon and Nicky Henderson provide much of the content.

Ways to Bet

Our Verdict – 7.5/10

Most bases are covered at  Its interface may be similar to Paddy Power but their odds and offers are very much ‘in house’ and they are emerging as a key player in British horseracing.

It would be nice if you could bet into Tote pools via StanJames and some extra markets on horseracing would not go a miss:  Without the favourite, place only, winning distance etc.

Outside of horseracing there is a great selection of in-play betting sports and markets, many of which come with free live streaming.  

Cosmetically it looks good, easy to identify icons sit nicely against every sport and navigation is very straightforward throughout the site. There is also easy links to other Stan James products such as their casino, poker and bingo rooms.
