TV & Novelty Betting

The idea of entertainment betting markets for reality tv will be baffling for some but with the creativity of sportsbook offerings means we now have a wide range of entertainment betting sites. This means that if you're a regular watcher of these shows, you can now bet on your favourite reality television shows with just a click of a button. Although, we advise taking into consideration that you may end up spoiling the show for yourself by viewing who the favourite is for each show.

Reality TV Betting

Betting on Reality TV shows is a relatively new phenomenon for bettors. However, the idea is excellent. A lot of adults spend days of their lives watching reality tv and have a very good knowledge of the programme, this means that they can analyse their favourite shows and input appropriate bets based on their knowledge. So whether you're a fan of Love Island, I'm a Celebrity or the Eurovision Song Contest, we'll have betting markets and odds that can be used at any time.

Naturally, Reality TV betting doesn't have the extent of betting markets that you'd find for the likes of football betting but you will be able to find smaller, more specific markets based on the show that you're watching and betting on.

Reality TV Betting Markets

Reality TV betting is rather restricted but our players can find betting markets on who will win each individual show. However, for shows like Strictly Come Dancing, you may find that betting markets are more expansive with introductions of betting markets relating to scores and order of elimination. With this in mind, there are two ways that you can place Reality TV bets and they are outright bets and in-play bets. Outright bets are bets that are placed before the show and is typically based on who will win the show in the end. Meanwhile, In-play betting, although typically restricted for reality tv programmes, allow you to place your bet during the programme, so if you see something that you think will majorly impact the outcome of a show, you have the opportunity to place wagers.
