Detailed review

For those who have never heard the name STS before, you’ll be surprised to hear that they’ve been in operation since 2013. If you’re currently betting with the big names but are willing to give one of the smaller companies a go, you’re in the right place.

Background

After starting in Poland and finding success, STS soon grew the brand and got a license to operate in Malta. As one of the biggest betting markets in Europe, they eventually decided to make the jump to the UK and haven’t looked back since.

With some experience in the industry, they’re in a great position to adapt to the changing times and recognise the demand of bettors. Our first impression is that they have a deep sportsbook, and that our readers would love to hear about them (and here we are with this review!). They might not be able to compete with the biggest betting sites, but we don’t see why STS won’t work for most players.

We know that brands these days like to get big names on board, and STS have chosen Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel as their ambassador.

Welcome Offer

Starting with the registration process, we should note that STS have systems in place to check identity and verify ages. Now a legal obligation for all betting services, we were glad to see this step included (no matter how frustrating it might seem when all you want to do is place your first bet).

If any information you provide during registration is proven to be false, your account may be terminated by STS. Additionally, you cannot refuse to provide documentation and expect to still bet on the platform. Before withdrawing for the first time, you’ll need to provide:

  • An image of yourself holding ID
  • A driving license, ID card, or passport
  • Proof of address (bank statement, letter from HMRC, or utility bill)

Banking Methods

Before anything else, we wanted to explore the banking methods since this actually has a direct impact on the welcome bonus. We found there to be a good selection of banking options, and we don’t think anybody will be left disappointed. There are no transaction fees from STS themselves, but you may be charged by your chosen eWallet, so make sure you understand their terms before getting started.

When using STS, deposits and withdrawals should be done using the same account. Although they aim to have withdrawals in player’s bank accounts immediately, it may take up to three days.

Depositing – Options include MuchBetter, Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, Fast Bank Transfer, Skrill, ecoPayz, Skrill 1-Tap, and Rapid Transfer.

Withdrawal – MasterCard, Visa, Skrill, Fast Bank Transfer, Neteller, MuchBetter, ecoPayz.

If you’re someone who enjoys success with betting, you cannot withdraw more than 10 times in a single 24-hour period, nor can you withdraw over £10,000 in this same period. Meanwhile, maximum deposits depend on the payment methods (minimum is £10).

Coming back to the bonus, you will not be eligible after depositing through an eWallet; this includes Neteller, Skrill, Rapid Transfer, ecoPayz, and MuchBetter.

Website Interface and Mobile Experience

If you like a good app for your betting experience, we’re sad to report that there isn’t one available from STS. However, all is not lost because the website is actually easy to use, and we really enjoyed our time on the platform. While the ‘Top Leagues’ are shown at the top, the search feature is available for both desktop and mobile. Let’s say you have a particular team in mind, search their name at the top and you’ll see the available markets almost instantly.

For those who aren’t sure where to bet, we recommend looking through the long list of sports (more on this in the next section). For us, the website loaded quickly between pages and navigation remained simple no matter how deeply we searched. The orange and blue work together nicely, and the display behind the markets is a calming navy. With some betting platforms, they overload the screen with colour, but STS get the interface just right.

As we would expect these days, the mobile website has responsive design which means that it’s suited to a smaller screen. As long as you have an internet connection, there are no downloads and you can bet within seconds. You can also change account settings, deposit, and withdraw on the mobile website.

Markets

Of course, football leads the way and you’ll see an abundance of markets with the big games. With STS’s history in Poland, this influence is clear too with handball and ski jumping. Don’t worry, you’ll also have ice hockey, basketball, tennis, snooker, MMA, boxing, rugby, golf, and a number of other sports.

We like to judge a betting platform by the variation they offer with markets, and there’s lots to choose from with STS. We said they can’t compete with bigger names in terms of individual markets, but they certainly give it a go with sports and events. During our time on the platform, we saw markets for the following:

  • Gaming (including Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, and StarCraft 2)
  • Chess
  • Auto Racing
  • Floorball
  • Sailing
  • Political Events
  • Movies and TV Shows
  • Lottery
  • WWE

With this, it’s hard to find an area lacking with STS. Whether you want traditional sports or gaming markets, STS has something for everyone.

Customer Support

We’ve seen lots of positives for STS, and it is now time to talk about one of the biggest problems; customer support. We think this area is important because we’re talking about real money with betting. With STS, we actually spoke to members of their customer support team and they were professional while helping with our problem with little fuss…but this wasn’t the problem. The problem is the lack of a phone line. Instead, we have to rely on emails or waiting to connect with somebody on the live chat function.

In-Play Betting, Live Streaming, and Cash Out

These are three features that have grown in the betting world as of late, so we couldn’t ignore them when assessing whether or not STS is worth your time. Starting with in-play betting, there’s a whole tab full of live betting markets and the most populated markets were in basketball, football, and tennis. Interestingly, STS also venture into eSports live betting.

For live streaming, some events will have a tiny camera icon next to them and this means that live streaming is available. For some, this will be another area that doesn’t quite match up to their needs because it’s only really available for eSports. If you prefer to bet on football and other sports, you’ll need to rely on the graphics and stats. We like how the live stats work because bettors can actually create their own view and include the details that are most important to them.

Finally, we were able to cash out fully and partially. While full cash outs seem to be standard across the industry today, not everybody has embraced the partial cash out, so this was good to see.

Promotions

Away from the welcome bonus, STS also try to keep hold of existing customers, and we like the football loyalty club feature. If you place a minimum of four football bets during the week, STS will send you a free £5 bet for the weekend. On the weeks of Champions League and Football League fixtures, this is normally achievable. The odds of each must be greater than 1.50 to receive your weekend bet.

Elsewhere, there’s also acca insurance for everybody who places a bet with more than six selections. If only one selection fails, you have some security. With all of these features combined, STS is making a case as one of the best football betting platforms around.

Summary

All in all, STS is staking a claim in the UK market and they even have a commitment to positive responsible gambling practices. They aim to educate users, have an option to turn off marketing notifications, and they offer reality checks, deposit limits, betting limits, time outs, and self-exclusions.

What’s more, their responsible gambling effort extends to advice on how to gamble responsibly and lists of organisations who help in this area!
