TV & Novelty Betting

As popularity of betting increases and having a little flutter has become a mainstream leisure activity, Bookmakers have begun creating markets and betting opportunities for keen punters who enjoy a bet outside of the traditional sporting betting events.

Who shot Phil Mitchell? Who will be voted off the X factor? Will the United Kingdom score 'nul points' in the Eurovison Song Contest? Who will win Big Brother? An Oscar? Sports Personality of the Year? And finally, will Alien life be proven?

A very broad collection of questions which at one stage may have been asked during a quiet evening in front of the television, however all these questions have one major thing in common, all of the above, at some stage were betting opportunities offered by bookmakers.

Punters have opened their arms and welcomed TV and Novelty betting in great numbers, as we can now bet on virtually anything, from TV specials, Politics, Award Ceremonies, Current Affairs, Hollywood, Weather and the name of a latest Celebrity newborn.

The world of Novelty Betting has also dipped its toe back into sports with Bookmakers offering markets such as the Sports Personality of the Year and the next City to host the Olympic Games.
