Win Share of €4K in Weekend Freerolls

Stan James Poker Weekend Freerolls

Stan James Poker customers can play in their €4,000 weekend freerolls every Saturday and Sunday, to win their share of €4,000. Customers must play the required number of raked hands at cash game tables to qualify and join in the tournaments on Saturday and Sunday.

The details of the tournaments are as follows:

€1,000 Saturday Freeroll

  • Takes place every Saturday at 17:00 UK time.
  • Customers must play at least 25 raked hands in the 24 hours before the tournament starts.
  • Buy in is free.
  • Blinds: 8 minutes.
  • Starting chips: 1000 chips.

Sunday €3,000 Freeroll

  • Takes place every Sunday at 17:00 UK time.
  • Customers must play at least 100 raked hands in the seven days before the tournament starts.
  • Buy in is free.
  • Blinds: 8 minutes.
  • Starting chips: 1000 chips.

A raked hand is a hand played at cash game tables where a player contributed to the pot and a flop is seen.

Customers must allow time for the cashed hands to register in the system, which is usually 15 minutes after a cash game session has ended.


A customer plays 25 raked hands in the 24 hours before the €1,000 Saturday Freeroll starts (from 17:00 on Friday until 17:00 on Saturday). They are then eligible to join in the Saturday Freeroll Tournament.

If the customer has also played at least 100 hands in the seven days before the Sunday €3,000 Freeroll tournament at 17:00 on Sunday, they can also join in the Sunday tournament with a chance to win a share of €3,000.

Cash Game Bad Beat Jackpot

Stan James Poker Bad Beat Jackpot

Stan James Poker customers playing at €0.10/€0.20 or higher Hold'em tables can take part in the Bad Beat Jackpot to win cash prizes. Opt in by clicking the Bad Beat ticker on any qualifying table. Once you have opted in, you will contribute 2 cents per hand towards the jackpot.

The jackpot is triggered when a player's hand, which can be any four of a kind or better, is beaten by a better hand.

The jackpot hits even if the players involved in the Bad Beat aren't opted in themselves.

You don't even have to be involved in the hand to win. If the jackpot is triggered, everybody playing at the same stakes will win cash.

You can opt in and out of the jackpot at any time, but if you opt out you won't be eligible to win a prize.

The Rules

Triggering the Jackpot

  • The losing hand must contain four of a kind 2s or better.
  • Both the winning and losing hands must use both hole cards in combination with three board cards.
  • The hand must go to a showdown.
  • There is no minimum number of players required for the jackpot to trigger.


  • The value of the jackpot contribution is €0.02 (two cents).
  • The jackpot contribution is taken from your balance at the start of the hand, immediately after the blinds and antes are posted.
  • Jackpot contributions continue to accumulate until the jackpot is won.

Allocation of Prizes

80% of the current jackpot is distributed as follows:

  • 40% is awarded to the losing hand (the bad beat winner).
  • 20% is awarded to the winning hand.
  • 10% is awarded to the other players at the table where the jackpot was triggered.
  • 10% is awarded to players playing at the same stakes.
  • 20% is used to 'seed' the next Bad Beat Jackpot.


  • You must be opted-in to receive any jackpot prize.
  • If you are sitting out when the jackpot is triggered you are not eligible for a prize.
  • If you have not contributed to the jackpot (for example, if your balance at the table is not sufficient to take the €0.02 contribution) then you are not eligible for a prize.
  • If the player with the losing hand (the bad beat winner) or the player with the winning hand is not opted in to the jackpot, then the jackpot will still hit but their share(s) will be added to the seed for the next jackpot. Other prizes will still be paid to opted-in players.
  • All prizes will be rounded down to the nearest cent, with any amount left over due to rounding going towards the seed for the next jackpot.
  • If more than two hands qualify for the bad beat, then the two highest hands count as the 'losing' and 'winning' hands. In the event that two qualifying jackpot hands occur at the same time, the hand which is completed first is awarded the Bad Beat Jackpot.

Blaze Poker

Stan James Blaze Poker

Stan James Poker customers can play Blaze Poker. Rather than joining a single table you join a large pool of players playing at the same stake range.

The basic rules of poker still apply.

At the beginning of each hand, the system randomly seats players from the pool at different tables. When you complete or fold your hand, you are immediately moved back to the pool and the system randomly sits you at another table. You do not have to wait until the original hand is complete, you can fold out of turn and move on to the next hand.

Playing a Blaze Poker Hand

Blinds are assigned to players who have played the longest without posting them.When appropriate, the standard Fold, Check, Bet and Raise buttons are displayed on the table.

Quick Fold

A Quick Fold button is available on Blaze Poker tables. The button is clickable even if it is not the your turn. You can click this button to fold and move to a new table without having to wait for the hand to complete.

When you click the button, you are seated at an empty table where you wait for enough players to join to start the hand.

When you choose to Quick Fold, the other players at the table still see you seated until the hand is complete.

Note:The Quick Fold button is available only when you do not have the option to Check.

Stan James Poker Review

Running on the big Microgaming Poker Network, Stan James can offer their customers access to an impressive selection of cash games, Sit and Go and scheduled tournaments, plus some generous bonuses for new registrations and regular players. The company made its name as a high street bookmakers, with around 65 shops in the UK and now have a range of online gaming sites, including a sportsbook, which pioneered in-play betting, and a casino which uses software from a number of developers for a unique mix of games.

The poker site is nicely presented, clearly displaying the current welcome bonus for new players, while below that, visitors can see information about some of the game variations, special tournament offers, bonus games, and quick links to either download the software or try a instant play mode.


All popular types of poker can be found here, including Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 5 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud, 5 Card Draw and Razz. The popular and fast-paced Blaze Poker, where players change tables after every hand, is also available.

The Microgaming software is very stable, with decent graphics and, following a recent re-design, the cards are now exceptionally clear to see. Many of the larger UK-based betting companies use the network, which means that 10,000s of players can be online at peak times, including lots of recreational players who have migrated across from the casino and sportsbook sides to try the games out. A downside of this network is that residents of many countries, including the USA, cannot play here due to local laws.

The lobby area is easy to navigate, and finding a table is just a process of deciding which version of poker to play and choosing from the detailed list. The lobby shows the stakes, whether it is No Limit, Fixed Limit or Pot Limit, the number of players and Hands per Hour.

Some of the most popular games are at the anonymous tables, where players who are building up a profile, or do not want others to know what their skill level is, can just play without revealing their identity. Once sat at a game, players can view game statistics, while decision-making is done using clear, easy controls.

Bonuses and Promotions

New customers can claim a welcome bonus, which in common with other poker sites, is released into the players account in stages as they accumulate player points. There are also a number of freeroll tournaments, just for those who have recently registered, where they can practice their skills and win real cash without using their own money. These are open for six weeks after signing up, giving new clients plenty of opportunity to gain experience.

The Poker Players Club awards loyalty points for each $1 in cash rake generated, or each $1 spent on tournament fees. There are four levels to the club, with members at the 1st Team Player level getting a 10% rake back each week, while those at the top level, Legend, get a 30% rake back plus bonus loyalty points. All players can exchange their points for cash or use them to pay for tournament entry, while there are special hidden benefits such as deposit bonuses or tournaments which are offered to all club members.

Stan James feature lots of guaranteed jackpot tournaments which can have prizes of $50,000+ and there are two daily Jackpot Tournaments, which reward the top 10 competitors extra winnings and pay out a large prize to any player who wins both on the same night. There are usually plenty of other promotions to be found, which, although will change from time to time, can include free sports bets for playing in designated tournaments and a Bad Beat progressive jackpot which pays out when a hand of four of a kind 2s or better is beaten. All players who have opted into the Bad Beat will share the prize, even if they are not currently logged in.


Funds can be paid into a Stan James Poker account using most of the common methods popular in the UK, such as credit and debit cards, pre-paid vouchers or cards, e-wallets and bank transfers. There is detailed information on each deposit and withdrawal method and how to use them on their website under the 'Help' section. Withdrawals are processed within one working day, although the funds may take 3-5 days to appear back in the customer's bank account.

Stan James are licensed and regulated in Gibraltar and as part of the requirements of this license, player's money is protected at all times and all transactions are carried out securely. An additional benefit of holding an account here is that the same funds can be used at the sports betting and casino sites, with no need to open new accounts.


Most of what Stan James do is done very well, and they are real innovators in many ways. The Microgaming network is home to many popular betting companies, especially UK-focused ones, and there are always thousands of players online. This means more games with a wider range of buy-ins, as well as an extensive selection of tournaments. All of the most popular poker variants are available, and Blaze Poker is an exciting addition to the more established types, perfect for anyone who likes fast action against numerous competitors.

Banking and Customer Support are efficient and well run, which is to be expected from a major provider like Stan James.
