Spreadex Review

In this Spreadex review, I’ll be taking an in-depth look at this top spread betting company, concentrating mainly on the sports products. Spreadex are a great choice for both sports spread betting and fixed odds betting. They also cover financial spread betting.

If you don’t yet know how to spread bet, then you can learn here or read my sports spread betting blog.

I have held spread betting accounts with a number of different operators over the years, so let me guide you through.

Spreadex was started in 1999 and is a dynamic firm. It has featured in the Sunday Times Profit Track list of 100 fastest growing UK companies on three occasions. They were also listed in the top 1000 fastest growing companies in Europe in 2017. Spreadex are still the only company to offer both spread betting and fixed odds betting from the one account.

Promotional Offers

It’s a little known fact that spread betting companies have some of the best promotions out there. Over the years, I have seen generous sign up offers in the form of large ‘cash bonuses’ and even ‘free gifts’, so keep it in mind. Spreadex offer an option for a free iPad instead of the £300 cashback.

Please read the relevant offer terms and conditions.

Currently, Spreadex sign up offers are:

Spreadex also have ongoing offers for existing customers. For example they might offer free spread bets, money back as a free bet if your horse is beaten by a big outsider and so on. They also offer frequent ‘guarantees’, such as best odds on all Premiership football matches. For more details, check out their main offers page.

Spreadex offer an excellent sports mobile app, covering spread betting and fixed odds. At the time of writing they have a score of 4.6 / 5 in the Apple App Store. The app mimics the Spreadex website very well, so app users should find themselves in familiar territory when it comes to navigation and bet placement. Their excellent Live Chat is now also available on the app.

Separate apps are offered for Financials and Casino, so there are three apps in total.

Note that although the ‘sports app’ states ‘Football Betting’ – it is in fact for all sports.

Spread Betting Funds

Retail client funds are held in a ‘spread betting ledger’, in a segregated Barclays and/or Lloyds bank account in keeping with the FCA client money rules. This includes, cash deposits, the valuation of open bets, winnings, as well as uncleared cheques.

These funds are held by Spreadex as trustee. Under no circumstances will any retail client money be used with Spreadex’s own funds. Neither will funds be placed with third parties, lie brokers for example.

Fixed Odds Funds

Any Retail Client or Professional Client funds, that are held in a Spreadex fixed odds account, are again held as trustee, in a separate / segregated Barclays or Lloyds account

In line with Gambling Commission directions, fixed odds balances receive ‘medium protection’. Customer funds are separated from business accounts. In the event of insolvency, arrangements have been made to make sure that funds and assets in customer accounts are distributed to customers.

Spreadex Review Conclusion

Spreadex are a dynamic, forward thinking company. From my own experience, customers are always dealt with in an efficient and professional manner. They do have the odd ‘bad review’ on Trustpilot but I can only think these stem from customers not fully understanding the terms and conditions of ‘sign up offers’, bet conditions, or simply having a case of ‘sour grapes’ from losing.

They offer what no other company offers in terms of sports and spread betting options and have a financial spread betting arm of the business too.

I am happy to rate Spreadex 4.75/5.00
