Cheltenham Festival is an annual event that horse racing enthusiasts look forward to. With over 28 races happening over four days, there’s plenty of opportunities for betting. This year, big names such as Paddy Power, Betfair, and more are offering various promotions for punters. Here’s a rundown of what to expect.
Paddy Power is famous for their cheeky ads and hilarious social media posts, but they’re also a top bookmaker offering competitive odds on various sports including horse racing. This year, they have a range of promotions for the Cheltenham Festival.
Firstly, they offer their famous “Money-Back Special” on a daily basis. If your horse finishes second, Paddy Power will reimburse your bet up to a certain amount. This offer only applies to selected races but with 28 races overall, there’s sure to be some that qualify.
Paddy Power also offers daily enhanced odds on selected horses. This means you can bet on a horse with higher (or lower) odds than their regular price. Additionally, they have their “Non-Runner Money Back” offer which means if you bet on a horse that doesn’t end up running in the race, Paddy Power will give your money back as cash rather than a free bet.
Lastly, Paddy Power has their “Cheltenham Festival Acca Insurance”. If you place a five-fold accumulator bet and one leg loses, Paddy Power will give you your money back as a free bet. This offer is available once per day, so it’s a great opportunity to spread out your bets over multiple races.
Betfair is the world’s largest betting exchange, and they offer a unique twist on traditional bookmaking. In addition to their exchange platform, they also have a sportsbook where they offer promotions for the Cheltenham Festival.
One of Betfair’s most popular promotions is their “Each-Way Edge”. This feature allows you to customize your each-way bet by selecting the number of places you want to bet on. You can also adjust the odds to get a better price on your bet. This is a great option for punters who want more control over their bets.
Betfair also has their “Price Rush” feature, which automatically boosts the odds on your bet if they’re better than the odds available in the exchange at the time you placed the bet. This means you can potentially get better odds than you originally thought.
Additionally, Betfair offers their “Acca Edge” promotion which applies to accumulator bets. If one leg of your acca bet loses, Betfair will give you your money back as a free bet. This is a great promotion for those who like to bet on multiple races over the course of the festival.
BetVictor is offering a “Run For Your Money” promotion for the Cheltenham Festival. If your horse loses all chance at the start of the race by refusing to race, coming out too late or failing to come out altogether, BetVictor will give you your money back as cash.
Boylesports is offering “Best Odds Guaranteed” which means if you take an early or board price on any horse and the starting price is bigger, they will pay you out at the higher price.
Ladbrokes is offering their “5 Team Acca Insurance” promotion which applies to accumulator bets. If one leg of your five-fold accumulator bet loses, Ladbrokes will give you your money back as a free bet.
The Cheltenham Festival is one of the most exciting events for horse racing fans and punters alike. With big names such as Paddy Power and Betfair offering various promotions, there’s plenty of opportunities to bet and potentially win big. Whether you’re a seasoned punter or a newbie to horse racing betting, take advantage of these promotions and enjoy the thrill of the festival.
