Stan James is one of the most popular independent book-making brands, which started its professional experience with a small group of betting shops located in Berkshire. Originally, the brand was founded in 1973, which makes it one of the oldest companies in the business. Currently, the company has several betting shops over the territory of the UK, but relies primarily on its major online and mobile betting presence in Gibraltar.

In addition, it is considered as one of the most competitive contemporary bookies thanks to the fact that Stan James has always been offering some of the best prices in the business, apart from the large number of markets on offer.

Still, the sportsbook section of the Stan James website is not the only thing why the bookie is so widely-preferred by customers who originate from all over the world.
