The Stan James brand began in 1973 as a single betting shop in Wantage, Oxfordshire, in Great Britain. The company was founded by Steve Fisher and James Holder, and is now owned wholly by the Fisher family. The company was named ‘Stan James’ by taking the first two letters of Steve and his wife, Anne (Stan), and from James. Nowadays, the Stan James operations are primarily online and on mobile though there is a shop estate of over 90 betting shops in the UK.
StanJames.com is Denis Kelly. The StanJames.com brand is available in markets across the world, with sports and casino customers from over 120 countries worldwide, but they focus in particular on the UK market and UK customers.
In December 2007 they bought the Betdirect bookmaking company, which was established in 1998, from 32Red for £5.75 million. The Betdirect operation was merged with Stan James in February 2009. In 2008, they bought the online betting business betterbet.com from London bookmaker Better. In 2009 Stan James started a cooperation with the Austrian BETKICK Sportwettenservice GmbH, together they found the brand SJBET and SJBET24.com (Internet betting) especially for betting shops in Austria, Germany and Europe.
StanJames.com are recognised as the pioneers of In-Play Betting, creating ‘live’ betting before it became a staple part of every online bookmaker’s offering.
The bookmaker offers betting odds on wide range of sporting events. Good for beginners as the site uses rather simple navigation. Reasonably good in-running coverage. Call-Centre allowing users to place bets when they don't get access to the Internet. Strong betting limits if you are from country where Stan James do not advertise.
