Betfair have been running horse racing offers for a long time and have the formula for them nailed down. The latest, for both new and existing customers, provides customers who place £20+ on horse racing multiples in a day with a £5 free bet.
To claim the promotion you need to opt-in each day you want to use it. Once opted-in you then need to stake £20+ on multiples during the day (00:00 – 23:59), this can be one bet over £20 or several individual bets as long as the total staked exceeds £20.
Qualifying bets can be composed of straight multiples with a minimum two selections (doubles, trebles, 4-folds etc) and/or complex and exotic bets (Lucky 15, Lucky 31, Lucky 63, Patent, Heinz, Super Heinz, Trixie, Yankee, Canadian or Goliath)
At least one selection in each multiple must have minimum odds of 1/2 (1.5) for that multiple to qualify. Bets also need to be placed and settle within the period, i.e. you need to bet on that days racing.
This offer applies to the sportsbook only, not the exchange, if you cash-out your stake will also not count towards the total.
The £5 free bet is awarded generally within 2 hours of competing the qualifying criteria. The token is then valid for 7 days and can be used on any sports in the sportsbook, stake is of course not returned but any winnings are cash.
Free bet clubs are common these days but there are not many for horse racing and very few that can be claimed daily. If you regularly place more than £20 in multiples on racing in a day then this offer can add value to your betting, giving you back up to £35 in free bets each week. There is no penalty for missing days either, so you can pick and choose what days you want to use the offer; just remember to opt-in before you bet.
New customers of Betfair can also claim a welcome offer, that you can read about in our full Betfair review. This deal is only open to over 18’s and it is important you read all of the major terms before you opt-in.
Remember you must be over 18 to gamble and it is important that you check all significant terms and conditions that apply before opting in.
