Restricted after first bet (Horse win). Part of the chat transcript:

[Me] So StanJames will (and do) actively restrict a winner on their website?
[Christopher @ SJ] Yes this could be the case at our discretion.
[Me] It appears as though Stan James wants to attract more business by promoting better prices. But has a fit when punters take the offered price and win.
[Christopher @ SJ] I'm sorry you feel this way.

Opened an account a week ago - £25 horse bet (lost), £20 horse bet (lost), £30 footy et (lost). Closed my account & reneged on the free bet offer they sent me. Pathetic excuse for a bookmaker!

I had problems after Stan jJmes kept taking money from my account. I had a balance of zero and deposited 45 but 2. 16 was taken from this deposit. Stan James said it was for money that I owed from previous bets and that I had been allowed to bet past my credit limit. They have said this on numerous occasions, each time small amounts of money get taken off the amount I deposit. This is money that I owe back to Stan James apparently. I don't trust them for this reason, no other bookie offers you credit to bet and I doubt Stan James have a license to do this.

Terrible customer service. Lack of intelligence. Would give me the creeps to bet on their site. They also refuse people from my country. Give them a red card. Stan James is a waste of time.

They accept all bets on many events and pay out winners promptly as long as you have won. In 4 years of using them to lay my bets I have had zero problems and been paid out many times.

I placed a £50 bet on a 8/1 horse. The horse was withdrawn and my bet voided. That was only the second bet I had with them, the first lost. They have closed my account. Disgrace.

Horrible, since Unibet got involved SJ is terrible, missing markets, poor customer service, restrictions. I honestly don't think they want anyone to bet there, how do they make money? Avoid, go elsewhere.

Used them for about a month and 90% of my bets lost with them (which is fair enough, that's just gambling). Today I got a nice bonus from work and decided to put it on a horse, the horse won and it knocked out all of the profit they had made from me in the last month. In less than 60 seconds after I withdrew the money, boom my account was been closed accusing me of arbing and there's no way of disputing it whatsoever. Absolutely pathetic, they might as well just ban people who bet on the odds on favorites, because it's got a good chance of losing them money.

Stan James offers a lot of nice bets at their sportsbook like both teams to score at lower league matches. Stan James was once a great bookmaker but now has seen their market share become smaller through the years. Stan James pays out very fast and has a good service. Their website is easy to use. Stan James is not the bookmaker it used to be. For the big player - look further, this is not the place where you want to try big money.

Rubbish odds, odds are refused if you place bets over £20. They were fine when I lost £120 over my first 10 bets but closed my account as soon as I won? 520 from a genuine £80 bet. Had to argue to get my payout. Waste of time.

Terrible bookie. I've had an account for a good few years but hardly used it. Last week I'd been having a few bets as ill at home. I simply backed four horses where they were highest price. They all shortened, and lost. Then an email saying due to betting patterns my account was closed by the senior trader, forever. An arber they say. So they ban you if you win, and ban you if they lose if horses shorten in price. Crazy. Unibet bought a basketcase, avoid at all costs.

Disgraceful customer services. Site often crashes and money goes missing. I would search for a more user friendly site as the service on Stan James is by far the worst I have ever come across. After sending email after email I was blamed because the games crashed and took a loss because they would not accept fault. How can I be at fault???

Great little bookie, good value bets & range of markets - perfect for punters who like to stake under a fiver. HOWEVER: If you like placing decent stakes (over? 50) and tend to bet with them because they have top prices on the market, YOU WILL HAVE YOUR ACCOUNT CLOSED IMMEDIATELY!

Closes account without notice. As corporal Jones would say "they don't like it up 'em. " Not a serious bookmaker, do yourself a favour and give these jokers a wide berth. There are much better firms available.

Stan James closed my account after 3 days. Only made my 4 bets and lost 2 of them. Just so happened my last bet won at 5/1 and I placed £100. It looks like they're sore losers and deserve to go out of business if you ask me. Oh and don't trust the 5 stars reviews on this page, I bet they're sponsored by Stan James.

It's simple to put multiple bets on. You don't have to keep changes pages like most bookmakers. When doing a lucky 15, you pick all the times of races, press view and pick all your horses.

Poor as I placed one bet with them and as it was a winner, I received an email that said "due to betting patterns on this account" what pattern I bet once. Now let's see if I can get my money out of them.

Poor betting, the reason they do not like winning players. Payments limiting the ridiculous amounts. No seriously for any games on the bet. I think like most bookies just want to pay, of course without payment. If you are a serious player, do not check it, this is for amateurs.

I got my account closed down after only placing eight bets (seven loosing and only one winning) all within a week and all on the horse racing and only £10 stakes. Reason given 'irregular betting patterns'. What a farce!

Hi, I opened an account with Stan James and got a bit lucky and won about 4 bets on the trot accumulating about 350 pounds on my fifth bet, they restricted my wager by half I contacted them and they said I was unprofitable for their business, so I've left it about 6 to 8 months and tried to make another bet of just 30 pounds but they restricted the bet to 5 pounds my highest bet I had there was only 50 pounds anyway but I'm restricted still. It's a shame really they have good odds.

Worst bookie ever - suck you in with a promise of a free match bet but will not let you place any thing near a reasonable bet - already limited to approx. £2. 00 per bet and - I have only been with them a day.

Another major UK Betting chain with lots of little shops dotted around the country. Odds are excellent and if you are a bit of a whizz kid at picking value, you can do very nicely here, but only for short time sadly, they close out winners very quickly.

This particular bookmaker offers a truly amazing and wonderful service that you will thoroughly enjoy using, their Live Betting System is a real wizard, coverage is bang up to the second with real time and a true pleasure to bet with, with fast execution and ability to get bets in at the last few seconds of the bet, to make small but practically guaranteed amounts on winning bets!

After being with them for 8 years, they cancelled my account today because they do not like my pattern of betting. I always bet at best price and they do not like the fact that I am a winning customer. The senior trader has made this decision and I am told there is no point in appealing. Boyles did the same to me a couple of years ago. The best bookie by far is Bet365 who regularly give me a loyalty bonus!

After reading various reviews on Stanjames, I wanted to give this bookmaker a try. The registration and verification process was very fast. I placed my first bet and lost. I still had some budget to spend, only that Stanjames wouldn't let me. Instead they sent me an email, saying they had closed my account because of a business decision. They returned my money, but took 1 % from my deposit. Well... I surely won't be playing with them again.

Slick site and competitive odds but if you do win they will very very very quickly close your account. Any mug punter will be welcome but if you take your gambling seriously then bet somewhere else.
