About was originally launched in 2008 by means of a strategic partnership with City Index. was known as Party Markets and was part of the renowned Party Gaming Group, which is the largest company of its type on the UK stock market.

In March 2011 Party Gaming merged with bwin which resulted in the worlds largest online gaming company being formed and it is listed on the FTSE250 Index under the ticker BPTY and the company is called

If you are not familiar with the bwin group they are heavily involved in sponsoring the Spanish football giants, Real Madrid, as well as the Serie B football league in Italy.

So, even though you may never have heard of, you should be reassured because their parent company is about as reputable as it is possible to get and as bwin and Party Gaming are extremely forward thinking in the way that they operate their respective businesses, with regards to cutting edge software and highly attractive bonuses, it is highly likely that will follow in the same steps.

Why join

With you really couldn’t be in better hands as the reputation of the parent group, is second to none. They have a bonus scheme in place which is aimed at their regular clients, which is a pleasant change to the spread betting firms who only target new clients with enticing offers.

The trading platform is easy to use and anyone with a Capital Spreads account will see that the spreads are exactly the same, but as is common with the brand, they are working on improving what they term ‘this standard offering’

Bonuses and Promotions for New Customers have a very attractive looking sign up bonus for new customers but it is important that you read the small print because at first site it can be somewhat deceiving. The bonus that is advertised is up £1000 on your first, deposit but to receive a sign up bonus of this size you have to deposit £10,000.

Nothing wrong with that, in fact it is a very generous offer but just bear in mind that it is 10% of whatever your first deposit is. also have three other bonus schemes on offer at the moment which are worth a mention. The first one being a ‘Refer a Friend’ scheme which pays out on a sliding scale up to a maximum of 5 friends. If 5 friends are referred, who go on to open an account and make a deposit, the referrer will be paid a total of £1000.

The second of these other bonuses is called ‘Tradeback’ and it works by giving you up to 10% of your trading costs back in the form of a rebate. Rebates like these are not to be sniffed at as they can soon mount up and it is a step in the right direction by, as they are looking after their existing clients as well as trying to attract new ones.

The third bonus is especially applicable to newcomers to spread betting and is detailed below under the Educational Resources section.

Range of Markets, Tight Spreads and Low Margin Requirements has a wide range of markets available and these include Stock Indices, Currencies, Individual Shares, Commodities, Interest Rates and Bonds.

To protect all of their clients from any unmanageable losses, attach a stop loss to every position that is opened with them. It should always be remembered though that these stop losses are not guaranteed so if an added precaution is to be taken, a guaranteed stop loss should be put in place, the cost of this added security comes in the form of a wider spread. have in place low minimum margin requirements so that it is possible to buy the FTSE at £1 per point for an initial outlay of only £30, or another example would be to sell an individual share such as Vodafone at £5 per point for an outlay of only £20
