I know StanJames aren’t exactly the favourite bookie of many OLBG members, mainly due to account restrictions and bet limitations, but I actually quite like them. Granted, I mainly use them for golf betting and therefore my stakes are fairly small, but they are often best priced on much of the field. They frequently offer extra places specials, sometimes even up to 7 or 8 places if you bet via your mobile. So I think if you like a punt on the golf then they are an essential bookie. The first thing I do before I place any bet is use an odds-comparison site and StanJames frequently offer stand-out prices on a lot of sports. Their customer service team has always been prompt and helpful. The website is fast and simple to navigate. I’ve never had any problems with payments and they’ve always been relatively quick. They offer a wide variety of markets and I’ve always been able to find any bets I wanted to place. They provide best odds guaranteed for horse racing, which I find essential, and they also offer extra places on a lot of the big races. If you punt large stakes on the horses, and are successful, then you probably won’t last long. But for small to medium-sized bets on most other sports, particularly golf, then I actually would recommend them, contrary to a lot of members on here. A ciascuno il suo.
have bet with them past 12months staff friendly and helpful was dissapointed recently when they stopped taking bog early morning prices on the phone i do have internet account with them but prefer talking to a human when placing a bet appart from this well pleased
I used to have a stan james account that I used all the time cos it was easy to access, but they didn't have the range of markets that other sites have. Then I find they closed my account with no reason, I have emailed them and they replied saying I would never be allowed an account with them again but no reason to why. I am not a big better so it wasn't due to me winning loads of them, they are a really poor excuse for a bookies - you would be better using paddy power, winner or betvictor.
Got to be honest, I've been a member for about a month and had to close my account down due to how slow the website is. They don't offer the best markets and compared to other sites I have used, this stinks.
I opened an account with Stan James 2 years ago but quickly stopped using it due to the stake restrictions applied. They didnt even wait for my account to prove to be profitable! I compalined by email but with no satfisfactory response. If your a bit shrewd with your betting and, for example you place single bets not accumulators, expect Stan James limits and restrictions to kick in quickly. Try Canbet or Betfair instead.
I like Stan James and use them frequently. Markets and matches can be a bit slow being put on the site but have seen prices better in here than other sites. I would recommend them just because the site is easy to use and is laid out well. Never had any problems with withdrawls or limits but i'm not a huge staker anyway.
If you are a small betting punter I would recommend Stan James as a potential bookmaker that you should be betting with as they have a great customer service, decent prices available and they can sometimes throw in the odd special offer every week which may be bet £5 on two big races on the weekend card and in return they might give you a £5 free bet to use. So all round a good betting company
I only just joined Stan James. I was straight away shocked by the limited number of markets they have available in the football market compared to the other betting sites available out there. Additionally, when they do offer a market they pick and choose the games and not offer all the games available in a particular league. So far i prefer William Hill and Bet365
