Bet365 are doing an excellent horse racing promotion where by backing the winner of a feature race at odds of 4/1 or higher, you will receive a risk free bet of up to £50.
There are 2 feature races per day. See Bet365’s site for which specific races each day.
How it works
Place a bet on one of these races in the normal way. If the horse wins at odds of 4/1 or more you will be able to place a no-lose bet (for up to the same stake, max £50) on another feature race.
If that bet wins then you will get paid as normal, if it loses you will get it refunded within an hour.
And in addition if that winner of the risk-free bet was at odds of 4-1 or more, you will get another risk free bet, and again, and again, until you lose or until the horse you back is less than 4-1.
Horse racing is no small deal in the UK
Horse racing in the UK is big business. There are over 10,000 races a year, averaging around 9 to 10 horses per race. The prize money up for grabs each year is approximately £1 billion.
Over 6 million people attend race courses a year in the UK, and millions of wagers are placed every single week online. Online betting on races has increased astronomically over the last 3 or 4 years, largely due to great improvements in computer software and systems, and the increased popularity of smart phones.
Majors racing festivals run throughout most of the year, with the exclusion of January and February.
Some notable events includes The Cheltenham Festival in March, The Grand National in April, Newmarket in May, The Epsom Derby and Royal Ascot in June, Sandown Park and Glorious Goodwood in July, York in August, Haydock Park and The Saint Leger in September, Newmarket and Doncaster in October, The Hennessy in November, and Kempton Park in December.
Tips for betting on the ponies at Bet365
Usual starting price odds include one or two short-priced favourites, with a large spread of longer prices behind.
Commonly at 4-1 or longer you can be backing at least the 3rd favourite. On larger fields or fields with very similar standards even the favourite can be at 4-1 or longer.
Take at look at the feature races on their site to see exact odds and runners. There is also a form guide so you can research horses a little. And after placing the bet, you can watch the race on UK television or via their website.
Please note that if you back more than one horse on the same betting slip then the first horse listed will be the one that will be considered for this promo. So make sure your main choice (best bet) is at the top.
