About Spread Betting

Spread Betting is an exciting, thrilling and popular form of betting on both sports and financial markets which is very different from the fixed odds betting offered by the traditional bookmaker:

1. With spread betting the more right you are, the more you win. Profits, and losses, are made in proportion to you unit stake, but this stake is not the limit of your financial risk. Placing a £10 at the traditional bookmakers means all that can be lost is £10. With spread betting you can win and lose many multiples of your £10 stake.

2. With spread betting you can back things to do well, or to do badly. Predict if the bookie have it right or wrong, the more right you are the more you win. If you think the event will go better than the prediction you will want to go high (BUY), however, if you predict things to go badly you will go low (SELL). You don't even have to be exactly right, either as long as you are in the right direction, you will make a profit. See our spread betting guide for more.

3. Betting 'In-Running' allows you to take a profit or cut a loss as the prices change. See our Betting In-Running page for details.

4. With a limited risk account you can experience the excitement of spread betting with the benefit of a safety net. With these accounts you will know the maximum you can win / loose on each bet. More about account types here.

5. Spread betting offers many markets on all different types of sports. Not only events for winning and losing events (called supremacy bets), but also those on total numbers and special bets on events such as total number of bookings in a football match. See Types of Bets for more details.

6. Spread Betting is regulated by the regulated by the FSA (Financial Services Authority).

7. Spread bet in the comfort of your own home or office via the internet. Risk free spread bets of amazing values are available for new customers.
