Sports Spread is based in the Republic of Ireland and was established in 2000 by Fergus Rice who has a wealth of experience within the spread betting industry. It has been the aim of this company to concentrate on offering tight spreads with regular promotions through out the year on major sporting events such as the Cheltenham Festival and major football tournaments.

Bonuses and Promotions for New Customers have a €100 New Account Sign Up Offer in place which is straightforward enough to claim. A new customer just has to have 5 settled bets in the supremacy markets  with each bet having the potential to win or lose €20.

Once those bets have been made it is simply a case of emailing the promotions department and the free €100 bet will be credited to the account. With this company it is always a good idea to keep an eye out for their blog which is updated on a daily basis and which contains regular offers to existing clients. One of the most attractive of these offers are regular spread free markets on the big football matches in the Premier league and La Liga as well as various other money back offers.

A refer and earn promotion is also in place and this also looks be quite generous. It pays out a bonus of €100 for each friend that has been recommended and meets the qualifying criteria which is basically the same as the sign up bonus. According to the customer help desk there is no limit to the amount of friends that be recommended to this scheme could be considered as quite a lucrative opportunity.

It is also worth following on Twitter and Facebook as that is also a source of further offers which are not available on the website.

Range of Markets, Spreads, Margin Requirements

The spreads are reasonably tight and when you also take into consideration the regular spread free offers that are made, are up there with Sporting Index when it comes to value for money. The range of markets aren’t as great as the market leader but there is still enough to cater for even the most ardent spread bettor’s interests.

The horse racing spreads are especially attractive and the careful punter will be able to unearth quite a few arbitrage opportunities throughout the course of an afternoons racing with the favourites index being an especially interesting area to look at.

As with the other sports spread betting firms, the margin requirement is dependant on the size of the stop loss and the greatest possible loss. As long as there are adequate funds deposited into the account to cover this, the bet will be accepted.

Mobile Trading Platform

At this present time there is not a specialised mobile trading platform but according to the customer help desk it is something that should be made available in 2012.

The actual website itself is well laid out and it is easy to find the bet that you are looking for. Under each sporting categorary there is a drop down menu and you are then taken to a window to make the bet.

It is then just a case of putting in the required stake and hitting the Buy or Sell button. The customer is given 15 seconds in which to confirm or cancel the bet and as long as there are adequate funds in the spread betting account, the bet will be accepted.


The training section of the website is pretty basic, especially when compared to the Training Centre at Sporting Index but any questions are always answered in a helpful and understanding way.

All in all, is an account that is definitely worth having. If you are new to sports spread betting it might be a good idea to open an account at Sporting Index first to take advantage of the superb training that they offer, but can definitely compete on the spreads and the sign up bonus and regular promotions throughout the year can prove to be quite lucrative.
