Stan James, perhaps historically a better known brand in the UK, were under the Unibet umbrella until recently but all Stan James accounts have now been swallowed up and you will be directed to your new Unibet account. If you look around you will find Unibet’s odds elsewhere at sites like MrGreen (with the catchy advert song) and 888sport so they are kind of being a big deal without really being known about. They are a little different from the majority of bookmakers here in that, once you reach their maximum bet limit, they provide the option of referring your bet to their traders. Bet365 also do this, as well as Netbet, but generally, unless you call them up, once you hit your max. then that is your lot! I like Unibet, their linemakers don’t necessarily follow the rest of the sheep and they genuinely take an opinion on sports like tennis, so where they are confident they will actually take a decent sized bet. Bonuses are fairly standard but they are a bookmaker who you will keep coming back to.
One thing to note from their horse racing is that they don’t operate a Best Odds Guaranteed offer like all UK bookmakers, which might influence your race bet decisions.
This review is for the unibet.co.uk site, there is a unibet.com site for non-UK citizens with identical odds but differing offers.

I’m never a fan of ‘opt-in’ promotions, seems to me like an excuse to withhold it; surely it can’t be that difficult to automatically credit to bet if requirements are met? Anyway, the offer itself is quite good and as there is nothing really like it out there then should be one to take note of if you do like to bet in-play.
Football Acca rush
Place a football acca with 5 legs or more on 1×2 Premiership markets and they will boost your acca by 25%. Maximum stake £25.
Not great at all. Bookmakers everywhere are offering acca insurance and bonuses and best price, this offer from Unibet doesn’t really touch them unfortunately. The fact that yon only bet Premiership game and only bet the 1×2 market makes it hard to justify placing your acca here,
