SJ / Unibet Bonus Review
Double ended welcome offer
Our Rating for:
Stan James

So as you know Unibet bought out Stan James and merged all customers into the Unibet brand.

That means that Stan James is effectively no more, although Unibet is a better site, and as a result the welcome bonus is now that offered by Unibet… a £40 + £10 offer.

The offer is impressive in that you get to place your first bet up to £40 with some insurance that if it loses you’ll get your stake back in bonus funds.

However you have to meet a 3x wagering requirement to withdraw any benefit which in our opinion is too steep.

Again the offer scores points because you get the added element of the casino bonus in with the betting bonus. It’s £10 for not a lot but with a 35x wagering requirement to withdraw any benefit it’s more for fun than anything else.

This offer scores a 3.5/5 stars with us. It’ll only ever get upgraded if the wagering requirements get downgraded. Simple as.
