Betfred are a good all-round bookmaker for any sport but for those that like to stick with tradition, this is one of the first places to sign up. Football is strong for this long established outlet but when it comes to general horse racing coverage, they are hard to beat.
They were first set up way back in 1967 when the first Betfred betting shop was opened so it’s no great surprise that they are so strong on one of our oldest sports and one of their best areas is with promotions. These may be subject to change but here are some of the best horse racing promos from Betfred right now.
Best Odds Guarantee
Like many bookies, Betfred’s horse racing deals start with a best odds guarantee system that applies to all UK and Irish Horse Racing. This essentially means that if you take an ante post bet and the subsequent SP odds prove to be longer, the bookmaker will pay out on the higher of the two figures.
It’s a standard offer that can be found in many outlets but it’s good to have it on your side as a Betfred account holder.
Betfred claim to have invented the patent formulas that we refer to as Lucky 15, 31 and 63 and to celebrate this, there are a number of horse racing deals that relate to these. Also included are Yankees, Canadians and Heinz and these can seriously boost your profits.
Each Day, Betfred will pick six bonus races and if you land all of your selections in any of those formulas, your returns will be increased. Boosts will vary depending on which type of bet you have used and these will range from 15% for Yankees and Lucky 15s, all the way up to 50% for Heinz and Lucky 63s.
And, if you’ve only landed one winner in your Lucky 15s, 31s or 63s, Betfred will pay a bonus of between 3x and 5x the odds for the solitary winning pick.
As well as getting boosts on your profits, Betfred may also reward you with free bet tokens in the horse racing markets. A regular promo in this respect is set up to refund losing stakes up to £25.00 if your horse finishes second to the SP favourite.
Betfred will typically select a card on a daily basis and the promo will apply to that specific meeting. You then select a horse at any price and if it is second to the SP favourite then that refund will appear as a free bet token within 24 hours and once again you have 7 days in which to use it before it expires.
We recommend that you check all terms and conditions, including any that are specific to free bet tokens while we will also look to bring you details of any extra free bet promos via our news feeds.
Overall, this is an excellent set of offers and with Betfred you can get a welcome bonus worth up to £30.00 as a free bet token which can also be used in the horse racing markets. It’s a sport that they take very seriously indeed and it’s good to see so many great deals being harnessed to the horses.
