Spread betting with 20:20 Vision
Spreadex is the UK’s leading sports spread betting company who came to Early for creative direction and execution for a major new out of home advertising campaign across the London Transport network, digital ads, social media and radio.

The Problem

Within the gambling sector, spread-betting is a highly specialised, niche offering with a relatively small total population.

Spreadex sought to dial up its clear points of difference between itself and its competitors. As a highly regulated sector, our copy and imagery needed to adhere to multiple guidelines, yet still pack a punch!

The Solution

Our strategic recommendation was to make heroes of the client’s 20 year heritage and the unbeatable, differentiating data insight that Spreadex’ Stats Centre provides its customers.

In response we developed a key 20:20 Vision creative device as the central pillar of the campaign. We crafted a range of bespoke, and highly proprietary ‘low-poly’ images of iconic sports people in action, deployed at relevant times and locations during the campaign period according to current sporting fixtures.

Engaging headlines were written with more than a nod to the environment in which they were viewed, across the transport network, inside trains, on platforms, in pubs, on taxi sides and in digital formats.


A highly engaging campaign, with a new positioning for Spreadex, resulting in nomination for Marketing Campaignof The Year at the SBC Awards.
