IG Sport are number 2 to Sporting Index in terms of the number of their Sports Spread betting clients. They offer a great range of bets, good incentives and a comprehensive website, which although very informative can be a little slow at times. IG was the second account that we opened some years ago and we do continue to bet with them on a regular basis. One neat feature which they offer is that once you have placed a bet they will immediately send you an email to confirm the bet amount and price.
Range Of Bets - IG's range of bets is excellent. They offer a huge variety of bets on all markets and offer 'in running' bets on practically all televised sporting events.
Website - Their website is packed full of information where you can place your bets, view live prices and log in to your up to date account. The live prices are continally updated during a live event with no need to refresh which is a definite benefit. However, it little slow sometimes.
Telephone Dealing - The IG telephone lines generally open at 10am, but sometimes depending upon the event this can be earlier. They are open throughout the day and into the night when there are live sporting events on the TV, giving plenty of accessibility.
Customer Service - They have a dedicated customer service phone line and email support.
Incentives - IG offer a free £100 bet after 5 settled bets have been placed. The £100 bet is generally on a live football match of your choice.

Our Rating - 8/10
IG offer one of the most generous incentives for opening a new account.
They also offer incentives for customers to switch from Cantor or Sporting to them upon production of a recent statement from either of these firms.
We do find the website a little slow so generally bet by phone, but we would have no hesitation in recommending those who want to spread bet to open an account with IG.
