A big year for political betting is not over yet. The UK Supreme Court decision, which is to be shown on live television, is the subject of a market on Betfair. On Wednesday, Mike Smithson from PoliticalBetting.com tweeted about the market.

He tweeted: "The Government making quite a recovery on Betfair's A50 Supreme Court betting. Up on morning from 18% chance to 28% one."

Bernard Marantelli, CEO at Colossus Bets has reacted to news that Squawka, a web-app that delivers you real-time data on football matches, has agreed to launch a fully optimised sports betting solution from FSB Technology.

He tweeted: “Platforms, suppliers, start-ups, Media Houses all want to be operators only operators don't want to be operators!”

It may have been a great year for British sport, which included so many great performances at the Rio Olympics. However, Andy Murray’s form towards the end of the year, combined with his second Wimbledon title, makes him a ‘shoe in’ to win Sports Personality of the Year (SPOTY) for the third time in four years.

@stewardsenquiry tweeted: "Want over 16% interest on your money in less than 2 weeks? Lump on @andy_murray for SPOTY with Stan James at 1/6.”

The 2016 Young People and Gambling Survey from the Gambling Commission survey found that three-in-four British children have been exposed to gambling ads on TV in the past year, with 1% of those aged 11-15 revealing that the adverts had prompted them to gamble for the first time.

GambleAware tweeted: "New research #parents should be aware of: the rate of gambling among 11-15 y/olds is considerably higher than smoking, alcohol or drug use."

Pinnacle Sports is celebrating 'double' success after adding the Esports Bookmaker of the Year title at the SBC Awards 2016 to its eSports operator trophy from the EGR 2016 Operator Awards.

Harry Lang, Marketing Director at Pinnacle, tweeted: "Double Award winners @PinnacleSports - the undisputed leaders in #eSports betting!"
