Stan James Review

Stan James is one of the biggest and most recognized bookmakers in the UK.  Their book is focused on appealing to UK bettors, which means they do focus a lot of soccer (football), as well as horse racing, golf and tennis.

The great thing about Stan James is that they often great money-back guarantee promotions that really give value back to players.  An example of an ongoing money back special that they offer is the bore draw special, where certain bets are refunded if a soccer match ends nil-nil.

Another fun promo that they are doing at the time of me writing this page is allowing members to guess the total of all the minutes scored in a Man U vs Sunderland game to receive a free £50 bet.

Stan James is a very fun book that does a lot of great promos for their players and has a significant social media presence.  If you are from the UK I strongly recommend Stan James as one of your main bookies.

Bore Draw – Money Back Special

I touched on this promotion earlier, but I will give some more detail here.  Any televised English or Scottish league game that ends in a 0-0 draw will have the first goalscorer, last goalscorer, first goalscorer scorecast, last goalscorer scorecast and to score a hat-trick bets refunded.  These refunds are cash and do not require any play through requirements.
