LONDON, September 1 /PRNewswire/ -- If the market is getting you down then it's time for you to use your skill and knowledge to turn GBP1 into a GBP100,000 on The 4th Market, the new stock market lottery. But you'll have to know what you're doing - this isn't picking bingo balls!

Monday, 1st September sees the launch of the new stock market game The 4th Market, an on-line gaming site licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission which promises players a whole new lottery experience.

Based on 10 popular FTSE 100 stocks, the aim of the game is simple. All you have to do is predict how the 10 stocks will perform against each other in a trading day to win a GBP100,000+ Jackpot.

The whole new on-line experience allows players to check out the stocks and perform their own due diligence by analysing fundamentals and numerous graphs, then once your predictions are made, you can watch the game unfold in your own real time Players Dashboard.

The site is kept up-to-date by a direct Reuters feed and promises to give both seasoned investors and novices alike a potentially rewarding time with odds about four times better than those given by the National Lottery.

The Company, The 4th Market Limited, is based in Surbiton, Surrey just outside London. It's Founder, Glyn Davies, says "we are really excited to launch The 4th Market, it's the completion of almost 2 years work. At this time, when investors really are feeling the pinch, a little light hearted entertainment will hopefully put a smile back on their faces." Davies is serious about his game though and enjoys telling you how he believes The 4th Market brand will be truly global within a year as the Company licences overseas operators to offer specific in-country versions of The 4th Market based on their national stock market. "Ultimately our goal is to have a 4th Market in every country that has a recognised stock exchange."

Although the National Lottery figures are in decline, soft gaming is on the increase as the internet makes on-line gaming all to easily accessible, and according to the National Prevalence Survey of 2007, 68% of the adult population are gambling every week and 80% of bets placed in the UK take place in newsagents.

When asked how he came up with the idea, Davies concluded, "in October 2006 when the US Government made internet gambling illegal, having done business in the US for many years I couldn't help thinking how hypocritical they were being when their whole existence and culture is based upon the only legal form of gambling known to man, that of investing on the stock market. I thought they needed to lighten up a bit, hence The 4th Market."
