One of the biggest events in the UK horse racing calender, Cheltenham, is merely days away, and if you’re in the mood to play punter as well as sports fan and observer, consider Bet365 amongst your options.
On March 13, this four-day jumps meeting will open with the Supreme Novice’s Hurdle event, with plentiful betting opportunities leading up to and including the big race on the final day known as the Cheltenham Gold Cup. There will be a mighty strong track of contenders this year, including perennial favourite and two-time winner Kauto Star.
Bet365 makes a “Price Promise” that entails them constantly updating prices and odds right up until the race starts, airing on terrestrial TV channels Channel 4 and the BBC. This means that you get the best price or the best joint prices on every stunning filly on the track. Just check your watch before you place your bet, the promise goes for every bet placed after 10am. If you happen to use another bookmaker, like Ladbrokes or William Hill, feel free to stick with them, as they do best price matching on bets. Not a bad deal. However, if you’re looking to add another bookmaker to your betting roster, or don’t have one yet, read on.
Bet365 also has a deal running called Channel 4/1 that could net you a free bet. If you back a single horse at odds of 4/1 or higher on any UK or Irish race airing on Channel 4, you get a free bet using the same stakes on the next race that’s going to be aired on the channel. And if that 4/1 bet you placed wins, you win an additional free bet under the same conditions.
Bet365 also guarantees the odds you place your bet on. If the starting price of the race ends up being higher than what you bet, Bet365 will pay you out based on the higher price. And this applies across the board for showcast bets and beyond.
