Stan James Free bets and Promotion Codes
As with a lot of sportsbooks these days, Stan James have switched to a 2 x matched free bet offer. All you need to do is make a deposit, then bet £10 on odds of 1.8 (4/5) or greater.
You’ll get the free bet credited to your account within 24 hours and it will be available to use for 7 days.
This is one of the easier bonuses to claim, so we’d highly recommend it if that’s what you’re looking for!
A common condition these days is that Neteller or Skrill deposits don’t count for the free bet offer. This also applies with Stan James.
Stan James Mobile Betting
The Stan James mobile site works well. The menu is very easy to use and allows you to access their range of sports. We had no problems making bets on the plat form.
They also offer the same content for users who’d prefer to use apps. The app is available to Android, iPhone and tablet users.
You can also grab the welcome bonus in the same way you’d get it through your PC.
Stan James Live In-play Betting
Stan James have a live in-play betting system like all good bookies these days. We found it not quite as good as some other sportsbooks though. The font and graphics used could be updated to make the visual experience a bit more pleasing.
However, to make up for the above negative, they do offer free streaming of all UK and Irish horse racing to users of their service.
Stan James Website design and features
Stan James have a simply designed and easy to navigate site. They want you to place a bet, so they make it as easy as possible!
Odds on plenty of sports are available and are easily accessible from the left-hand menu, as you will find on most betting sites. By switching to the casino, poker, slots, games or skill tabs at the top of the site, you also have a wide variety of other gambling options available to fulfil your every need.
Stan James have tried to make their site as customer focused as possible. It’s packed with additional features like live scores, commentaries and stats. They even give you daily tips and advice from their in-house betting experts.
If you are a horse racing fan, then there is even better news for you. These guys are big on horses and offer guaranteed best odds on all UK races. They also stream some races live from the site.
The visuals could be a bit more modern. We found other sites used more graphics which gives a better experience.
They have a nice free bet offer though, which we found to be one of the easiest to claim.
