Pay-out ratio

The pay-out ratio is almost 93 % which is average in the market today. A good feature at Stan James is that they provide their odds pretty early and they rarely change their odds which is a nice feature for many players.

They provide good odds on the well-known football leagues but they are not that competitive when it comes to sports like volleyball or handball, for instance.

On the other hand, Stan James is known for limiting the odds if you show signs of being a high roller.

The verdict

Stan James is definitely worth a visit. It provides a whole range of very different sports events for every single pleasure.

They also provide interesting special odds on the big football leagues.

If you are into casino games, poker, roulettes, etc., you are good to go at Stan James.

On the other hand, Stan James is all about the games that the British are interested in. They are not very good with the odds on the smaller leagues in Europe or sports like volleyball and handball.

It is also very frustrating that they limit your odds when you have one a pot or two.

But if you are into the “mainstream market” like The Premier League, The Champions League, La Liga, tennis and golf you have definitely struck jackpot.
