SportsSpreads has been growing for over ten years by providing its spread betting customers with spread free markets and money back specials on the biggest events plus a £100 bonus offer for opening a new account.
SportsSpreads is a fully licensed bookmaker founded in 2000 and operates a spread betting business from its base in Dublin in the Republic of Ireland. SportsSpreads offers its customers the opportunity to place spread bets on a variety of popular sports and political markets, concentrating on providing tight spreads across the most heavily traded markets. SportsSpreads has been growing steadily ever since its launch and in 2011 was shortlisted for EGR’s prestigious eGaming Awards for 2011.
Spread betting is an exciting alternative to the usual fixed odds betting provided by traditional sportsbook operations. SportsSpread makes a prediction on the outcome of an event and its customers bet on whether the actual outcome will be higher or lower than the traders’ spread. This type of betting can be an exhilarating experience, because the more you are right about your bet, the more you can win. But it can also be very risky because on the other hand, the more you get it wrong the more you lose.
SportsSpreads gives new customers £100 bonus once they’ve placed bets on five Supremacy markets that have each won or lost £20. The £100 bonus can be withdrawn once a further five bets have been placed on Supremacy markets which have won or lost £20 each. At first glance, it may look like you’re receiving £100 free bets, but the customer needs to understand the full risk on each market, which could exceed the £20 minimum.
In the fine tradition of Irish bookmakers, SportsSpreads run regular promotions among which Money Back Specials have proved very popular. SportsSpreads Money Back Specials will earn refunds on net losses on nominated Supremacy markets, typically up to around £150. SportsSpreads Daily Specials involve giving customer nominated selections additional bonus points towards the total make of the market.
SportsSpreads provides markets for American Football, Boxing, Football, Golf, Horse Racing, Rugby Union and Snooker plus political markets and entertainment markets such as X Factor. Many of the most traded markets for these events can be bet In Running, or In Play as it is also known.
