Stan James Promo Codes 2015!
Stan James Sports Promo Code
Using this link new players can get a £10 free bet when depositing and betting £10, I won’t lie, this isn’t a great bonus especially when compared to Bet365! but it’s easy to unlock, simply make your first bet at odds of 1.8 or greater and you will be credited with a free bet token to use on any market (remember free bet stakes aren’t returned in any winnings).
The signup bonus may not be great but Stan James do tend to prefer rewarding loyalty over enticing new customers, if you base most of your play at Stan James you will get free bets, spins and match bonuses from time to time. Exactly how much you will receive depends on how much you wager, which sort of games and how much you lose of course. For example high rolling slots players will be rewarded more than a professional bettor placing bets on handicapped football matches.
StanJames.com push 2 main sports, Football and Horse Racing. Ofcourse you can still bet on a host of other sports as offered by most bookies.
Ongoing promotions for new and existing customers at StanJames include a ‘Happy Hour’ every Saturday offering enhanced prices on 1 horse for 1 hour. Generally you can also claim free bet offers one major sporting events, such as place a £20 prematch bet get a £5 inplay bet, again these offers aren’t great when compared to other bookmakers, infact during Cheltenhmam, one of the biggest racing events of the Calendar in which bookmakers trip over themselves trying to entice players in, Stan James offered nothing, not a single enhanced priced or money back special!
Stan James Casino
Using this link new Stan James casino customers can get a £300 welcome bonus in the form a 30% match, while this may not sound great the bonus terms are pretty good:
Rather than getting an instant bonus and having to complete wagering requirements you simply make your first deposit and start playing with your own money, you can stop and withdraw at any time if you hit a big win, once you have wagered your own money 20x you will get the 30% bonus as cash to do with as you please. This means you aren’t tied in to wagering money before withdrawing.
Also new customers get 5 free spins without the need for a deposit.
StanJames.com uses multiple software vendors such as NetEnt and a few other smaller ones.
Promotions for existing players are a bit better than the sportsbook, for example if you wager £50 on the mobile device you can claim a £10 instant bonus. For players who wager quite a lot you will get rewarded weekly with free bets and spins, the amount you get rewarded depends entirely on your total wagering.
Stan James is available to play on your desktop machine as well as Mobile devices, bear in mind not all slots and casino games function on mobile but most of the new games work fine.
Stan James Games
The games section, like many similar sites, is just a minisite offering more casino games from a different vendor. In this case Stan James Games offers players games from Microgaming, a long established gaming provider.
Microgaming has been around for many years and was one of the first established online gaming software providers. The range of slots vary from classics such as Thunderstruck to the popular ‘Immortal Romance’ a high variance 243 line slot.
Stan James Games is run in conjunction with the casino side of things so your casino bonus should be playable at the games section too (you can also claim your 5 free spins here too)
Stan James Poker
The promotions for Stan James Poker are actually pretty good which is surprising considering the bonuses for Sports and Casino! New players can take advantage of the following.
200% on your first deposit: Claim up to a $1,250 poker bonus in the form of a 200% match on your first deposit. This bonus is unlocked where you start raking cash in real money cash and tournament games.
20% Instant Cash Bonus: As well as the 200% bonus above new customers get an instant bonus of 20% if they deposit over $100!
$10 bounty tournament ticket: Free entrance to an exclusive Stan James bounty tournament.
$10 Poker sidegames bonus: Play the sidegames in the poker client (microgaming) and get a $10 bonus!
Stan James is one of the few UK betting companies still running Microgaming Poker software, most other companies use iPoker. Over recent years Microgaming poker traffic has steadily declined, as such tournament guarantees are dropping off and cash game tables don’t get started as often. On the plus side this gives way to the occasional poker overlay and high value tournaments.
Stan James Mobile
As with any decent betting site Stan James has a mobile interface, with apps available for all major devices, if you are new to the mobile app you can get a further £10 free.
About Stan James
Main complaints about Stan James from twitter etc seem to be the fact they are quick to restrict betting accounts if they think you are a professional bettor or doing matched betting/bonus abuse.
Also the lack of signup bonuses and tight fistedness during major sporting events seems to upset a lot of customers.
It seems Stan James is going after the more high rolling casual punters.
Although StanJames is UK based they accept most countries from around the world in multiple currencies and Languages (though you should check your local laws if you are unsure)
