Four Ways to Bet!

Extrabet.com is a division of IG Financial and replaces what was known as IG Sport. Launched in 1993, they are one of the oldest UK firms and if they were on Mastermind their specialist subject would be 'In-Running Football' where they have 200 markets!

They also have a healthy 35 markets on live rugby and an equally impressive 23 markets on live American Football. The extrabet telephone dealers are very knowledgable and despite taking bets within seconds, they retain a good sense of humour and alertness.

Range of Bets - Good range of bets in all sports and almost every live televised sporting event. They also offer binary odds spreads on most football, tennis, golf, cricket and NFL markets. Binary bets are a really simple method of spread betting with a simple yes/no proposition.

The new Extrabet format is a vast improvement on the old one that was formerly known as IG Sport and their website is much easier to navigate -important when you are trying to access a market in a hurry.

Definitely worth your attention -especially if you want Spread Betting, Fixed Odds and Binary Betting -all under one betting umbrella!
