1. Tell us about the history of Stan James sports book
Stan James was founded in the UK in 1973 and has become one of the best-known gaming brands in the UK.
Our brand has a history and reputation as being betting and gaming pioneers – Stan James were the first to introduce the world to In-Play betting.
Stan James is a family-owned and operated company, and has built its reputation on integrity, product innovation, and social responsibility.
We offer a comprehensive sports betting offering, as well as a hugely popular casino and poker product.
Our integrated mobile telephone application and 24/7 call centre and website (www.stanjames.com) guarantee access to a dynamic product range in multiple languages, while empowering customers to ensure they can play within their means.
2. When did Stan James launch their on-line products?
StanJames.com went online in 2003, since when the company has gone from strength to strength.
After the aquisition of the BetDirect business in 2007, StanJames.com increased its sports book offering to include a now-popular In-Play Betting platform as well as a leading mobile betting platform.
The Casino and Poker products have gone from strength to strength too, with a recent Casino redesign giving StanJames.com Casino customers even more playing choice than ever before.
3. Do you think the conversion and retention rates are better because Stan James has land based betting shops?
To a certain extent it helps, undoubtedly, because a high street presence helps build and maintain brand association.
However we do place great emphasis on our conversion and retention programme, which means that the lifetime value of our customers is above what we believe to be the industry standard.
Our customers know they can rely on market-leading product and great customer service.
4. Many on-line sports books have been promoting their casino almost more than the sports book itself, like bodog or bet365. Is Stan James looking to grow their on-line casino in a similar way so it stands out on it's own?
We have plans in the future to do more explicit advertising of our Casino as we seek to increase the size and scope of our Casino product, but in the short term we firmly believe that the recent improvements we have made to our online Casino will lead to strong organic growth, a process which is already underway.
