Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. This is not necessarily illegal, the only issue is, a bet is a contract for difference, the betting company presumably will not know the bet is being made on your behalf? if that is the case then if you ever had a dispute with the betting company, it would have to be the person that put the bet on that brings this dispute or complaint to the betting company. Can I assist any further? Kind regards AJ
