About SportingIndex

General Information

Sporting Index is without a doubt the global leader in its sector, being the pioneer of sports spread betting and providing one of the most thrilling sports betting experience online today.

Founded in 1992, with just five members of staff and 50 clients in the UK. It has been at the forefront of the sports betting industry ever since.

Sporting Index’s betting offer is still unique today even in the face of a fiercely competitive online betting market with its’ bonus and odds wars.

The company offers spread bets on a wide variety of sports, political and showbiz events. They allow bets to be placed 24/7/365 via their mobile phone apps, websites and a voice telephony service.

As a leader in the UK sports betting market, they are authorised and regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority and the UK Gambling Commission.

What is spread betting?
Spread betting on sport has been around for over a quarter of a century, even longer than betting exchanges like Betfair and Betdaq.

It can be traced back to the pits within the foreign exchange markerts when traders would buy and sell currencies, equities or commodities.

The site therefore uses much of the same jargon, such as “buy” and “sell” or “long” and “short”. Instead of trading markets based on underlying financial assets, Sporting Index make markets on the outcomes of a huge range of sporting events. It is like being a stock trader but using your knowledge of sports.

So while a trader in the financial markets trades the FTSE index or the price of gold, Sporting Index traders may trade on the number of corners in a football match or the number of runs a batsman will score in a cricket innings.

Even if you have never tried this type of betting before, Sporting Index have an excellent range of training on their site and have a minimum stake of just one penny.

The site itself is very modern and very easy to navigate and use. For sports bettors who want to back their judgement, but with a cap on how much they can lose, then spread betting offers this.

The deposit options at Sporting Index include Visa, MasterCard, Skrill and Neteller. These same options are available for withdrawal as well.

Deposits are immediate for card transactions and e-wallets, Withdrawals take 3-5 days when using a card and are immediate when withdrawing using e-wallets.
