Entertainment Betting

Betting is no longer restricted to sports, casino and poker. You can now bet on major forms of entertainment, including music, television and movies. You can also bet on major news stories involving the Royal Family, including future royal weddings, royal pregnancies and one of the most popular royal Family betting markets of them all, royal baby names!

Strictly Come Dancing Betting

Strictly Come Dancing remains one of the most popular television shows on British TV every year and that popularity extends to the bookmakers, who continue to offering Strictly Come Dancing betting markets each year. Strictly Come Dancing betting is available almost all year round, even before the final line-up is confirmed, and the outright winner market is not the only Strictly Come Dancing betting market available with the bookmakers. Once the live shows are underway you can also bet on the sex of the show winner and the next celebrity to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing.

I’m A Celebrity Betting

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here always creates plenty of headlines, and it also present opportunities to bet on the ITV reality show. Even before the final line-up is confirmed you can bet on potential winners in the outright I’m A Celebrity betting market, and that list of celebrities is obviously shortened once the final line-up is announced. That I’m A Celebrity betting market is available throughout the competition, while you will also be able to vote on the next elimination as the British public begin to vote celebrities off the show.

Britain’s Got Talent Betting

The X Factor may have been cancelled for the time being, but Britain’s Got Talent continues in 2020 as more members of the general public try to win an opportunity to perform for the Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance, and of course Britain’s Got Talent betting will be available. The series begins with a bunch of taped auditions and from that moment on you will be able to bet on the outright Britain’s Got Talent betting market, with the bookmakers adding more names to the list as those taped shows air. Once the live shows are underway you will not only be able to bet on the winner, there will be other Britain’s Got Talent markets for you to choose from all the way up to the final itself.

Dancing On Ice Betting

Dancing On Ice made its triumphant return in 2018 and is now the reality television show that kicks off each calendar year on ITV. And just like every other show of its type, the bookmakers continue to offer Dancing On Ice betting markets in the run-up to the show and during it. Once the rumours start about celebrities the bookies open up the outright Dancing On Ice betting market and once the show is up and running not only can you bet on the winner, you can also bet on a selection of other Dancing On Ice betting markets, including the sex of the winner and the next celebrity to get voted off the ice.

BBC Sports Personality Of The Year Betting

Every year the BBC honours its top sporting stars with the Sports Personality Of The Year, and all year round the bookmakers offer BBC Sports Personality Of The Year betting markets that allow customers to bet on who will win the award. This market fluctuates as major events happen and the athletes shine in those events, so the BBC Sports Personality Of The Year is one that can see dark horses come out of nowhere to be frontrunners. This award has also thrown up a few surprises over the years, so there have been opportunities to enjoy some tidy profits when betting on BBC Sports Personality Of The Year betting markets in the past.

Oscars Betting

Oscars betting remains a very popular way to bet on the movie industry, with bookmakers offering Oscars betting markets for a whole bunch of the awards, from Best Actor to Best Actress, from Best Supporting Actress to Best Supporting Actor and, of course, From Best Movie to Best Director. Oscars betting markets are available throughout the year as blockbuster markets rack up millions at the box office and the applause of the critics.

Next James Bond Betting

There are few movie franchise that rival James Bond, so the subject of who the next James Bond will be is always a hot topic, especially when we know that the current James Bond is on his way out. Daniel Craig is stepping down after No Time To Die so the Next James Bond betting market is well and truly up and running. The Next James Bond betting market has had numerous favourites over the past couple of years and the next James Bond betting market is likely to fluctuate more and more as speculation reaches a fever pitch over who will be the next man to carry the licence to kill.

Oasis Reunion Betting

One of the biggest talking points in music over the years has been whether or not Britpop legends Oasis will finally reunite. Oasis went their separate ways due to the massive rift between Liam and Noel Gallagher, but for over a decade now Oasis Reunion betting has been popping up as each brother talked about the potential for a reunion. Liam has called on Noel to put their differences to once side this year for a charity gig, and that means Oasis Reunion betting is once again available at this time.

Christmas Number One Betting

One of our biggest traditions remains the race to be Number One in the music charts for Christmas, so it goes without saying that the bookmakers offer Christmas Number One betting markets that allow you to bet on who will be top of the tree on December 25. Christmas Number One betting goes live in the weeks leading up to the festive period so the Christmas Number One betting market is not one that is available all year long.

Royal Family Betting

Royal Family betting is available all year round just about, with bookmakers offering Royal Family betting markets for a whole host of matters. Royal wedding, royal births and Royal baby names are among the Royal Family betting markets we have seen over the past decade and as the Royal Family grows you can expect to see more Royal Family betting markets in the years to come.
