Stan James are an example of a high street bookmaker that has developed a wide ranging online presence by offering sports betting, poker, and casino sites. Originally established in 1973, there are around 65 betting shops in the UK and Ireland, with the online side of the group now making up the bulk of their turnover. Although based in Oxfordshire, the casino is licensed and regulated in Gibraltar, which means that customers can be assured of fair play, with games independently audited, while strict security regulations are in place to ensure that customer's details and financial transactions are all secure.
The site itself is simple and straightforward with the latest promotions and list of recent winners along the top and details of the top title below. It's perhaps a little old fashioned looking, but there is nothing fundamentally wrong with its appearance.
A number of bonus offers are highlighted on the main page but they are outstanding for the wrong reasons. The deposit bonus for new players is well below what is available at other online casinos and while it will change in detail from time to time, players can expect to receive just a few pounds upon signing up. Although there are a few bonus codes and promotions offered to regular players, these are also below what other online casinos tend to provide with no loyalty scheme or cashback offers. However, there are some promotions that are quite unusual and show that Stan James at least like to offer something different. These include doubling a player's winnings up to a certain level, free spins if they don't win on particular days and weekly cash rewards based on what games have been played and how much has been staked the previous week. The weekly rewards are discretionary, and can be as little as £1.
If the bonuses are disappointing, then the games on offer do go some way to making up for this, as Stan James have chosen to offer titles from several different developers, giving them a unique mix which includes a number of big progressive jackpot slots. Most are from Microgaming, who have the largest range of any supplier and there are some additional titles provided by NetEnt and Chartwell. The emphasis is on slots, as there are only a relatively small number of card and table options, which include eight varieties of Roulette and six types of Blackjack, plus some live dealer titles. A number of the table and card games are versions which cannot be found in many other places and certainly not all together on one site, with Oasis Poker, 5 box Blackjack, and Trey Poker being examples that provide something different to try out.
Progressive jackpots are available on slots including:
A number of titles are based on popular movies, like Scarface and Sleepy Hollow, or video games like Tomb Raider and Hitman, while other titles that have proved popular at online casinos include Immortal Romance, Thunderstruck II, Monopoly and Gonzo's Quest. NetEnt software use 3D CGI effects to provide impressive cinematics.
Player accounts can be funded using credit, debit cards and e-wallet systems, but overall, the range of options is very limited. There are no additional fees charged for deposits or withdrawals and the minimum deposit amount is only £5, with the minimum withdrawal being only £10. Withdrawal requests are processed in 3 -5 working days and players may need to provide proof of identity prior to receiving their first funds. By default, all payments will be made back to the same card or e-wallet used to make deposits, or by bank transfer if that is not possible.
Once an account has been opened at Stan James, the same funds and log in details can be used to play at the poker, games, and sports betting sites.

Stan James Casino has a good range of games from several suppliers presenting players with a variety of table, card, and slot games. However, the bonuses are not up to standard with a relatively small welcome bonus and few ongoing promotions. Most online casinos have loyalty points schemes, where players can get cash the more they play or redeposit bonuses, but none of these are offered here.
