Stan James Mobile Betting

You don’t have to be indoors at a desktop computer to place a bet with Stan James. You can get a bet on anywhere that you can find a signal with their easy to use mobile site. Its design makes it look just like the main Stan James site but it has been optimised so that you can get involved in the action as quickly as possible.

Stan James' Mobile Site

The Stan James mobile site.

All too often betting sites look cluttered due to the vast amount of information that they contain but Stan James’ mobile site manages to distil their huge selection of odds into a clean layout. It’s impressive that they’ve managed to bring the power of their main site to both IOS and Android devices and it is even possible to stream live horse races direct on your phone.

Navigation is smooth and fast and when you get to an individual event there is no messing about – it’s straight into the choice of markets available. Placing a single bet is as easy as tapping a selection and entering you stake. For multiple bets there’s the well-designed Stan James BetSlip which instantly shows you your options and the winnings you’d be entitled to if the bet wins. It’s perhaps not got all of the bells and whistles of some of their biggest competitors but the Stan James mobile site has all you need to quickly place a bet wherever you are.

 

In-Play Betting

Stan James’ in-play offering is very strong for a company who are not widely regarded as one of the biggest players in the online betting field. The Stan James site proudly proclaims that they are powered by Unibet and they certainly make the most of their huge partner as well as their own expertise.

When in-play betting really took off Stan James were one of the first movers and they claim that they remain ahead of the pack. The sheer number of markets that they price-up and trade whilst the event is ongoing backs up that claim. Going forward they will continue to explore new in-play betting opportunities which is one of the key reasons to sign up with them.

 

TV Adverts

The tagline of Stan James’ TV advertising is that they are “for the bettors”. Whether it’s examining the dimples on a golf ball or a pristine racing horse, Stan James claim that in-depth sporting knowledge doesn’t matter unless you put a bet on it. The ads are simple and well-executed as you can see for yourself below.

About Stan James – Quick Company Overview

Stan James’ growth from a single betting shop in Oxfordshire to an online betting company with customers in over 120 countries is nothing short of remarkable. They may have only come to the attention of most people relatively recently but the company’s history stretches back to 1973. The name, Stan James, is an amalgamation of co-founder Steve Fisher and his wife Anne’s first names and that of his partner, James Holder.

The company was a pretty early adopter of online betting and gaming and as they grew their internet business they began to acquire other companies. Betdirect came into the fold in 2007, betterbet.com followed around a year later and in the following years they struck up partnerships with other European betting companies to expand their influence on the continent.

In September 2015 it was time for Stan James itself to be acquired. European giants Unibet bought the company and its brand for a big fee. They continue to operate Stan James as a separate brand given its loyal custom whilst giving their users the benefit of the Unibet expertise and spending power.
