Review of Stan James mobile site
The Stan James mobile site provides a streamlined, attractive interface that’s a far cry from the “plain text on dull background” interfaces currently offered by some of the top sportsbooks. It features the same vivid green colouring as the desktop version of the betting platform, and has a clear layout that’s easy to understand and navigate. It’s also fast to download and update.
The mobile site supports live streaming and includes live scores and statistics, so you can easily keep track of the action. You can also access Stan James’s live commentary for horse and greyhound racing from a mobile device.
On the down side, the mobile interface takes some getting used to. For example, it can be confusing working out how to switch between different markets. However, the same can be said for almost all mobile betting apps, which need to give users access to a lot of information via a potentially very small screen.
Stan James isn’t currently offering special deals aimed at mobile users, although mobile users qualify for all the regular promotions on its web site.
