Posted 12/15/10 : Spreadex launches platform to place fixed odds and sports spread bets via iPhone or other smartphones
 
Online bookmaker Spreadex launched its Mobile Sports Betting Platform allowing customers to place sports fixed odds and sports spread bets on their iPhone or other smartphones. Players are able to bet on the very latest in-play sports prices wherever they may be, as well as manage their account by depositing cash or withdrawing winnings
 
The platform, developed by Spreadex’s in-house team of developers, is not an ‘iPhone app’ but a website which has been specifically optimised for use on the iPhone, Android and Symbian^3 operating systems.
 
Spreadex financial spread betting customers can also view their open financial positions via the platform, but cannot yet open or close trades. The firm’s full Mobile Financial Trading Platform is expected to follow in early 2011.
 
Spreadex Marketing Communications Manager Andy MacKenzie said: “We sought feedback from sports spread betting and sports fixed odds betting enthusiasts before starting work on the platform and therefore we’ve avoided some of the pitfalls of other mobile sports betting apps currently on the market.
 
“The result is a slick interface, providing quick access to thousands of sports markets with constantly updating prices, all with the added bonus that punters can choose between sports spread betting or sports fixed odds prices.”
