Horse Racing Returns – June 2020
At last! Horse racing in the UK comes back with a bang in June and we’ve finally got plenty of action to get stuck into, albeit without crowds being able to attend racecourses.
The biggest races in the early part of the month include the Coronation Cup on Friday 5th June, then we have the first two Classics of the flat racing season: the 2,000 Guineas on Saturday 6th and the 1,000 Guineas on Sunday 7th June.
With lots of courses trying to make up for lost time this month, we also have the Irish 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas to enjoy, and then all eyes will point towards Royal Ascot – which, all being well, should run from 16th to 20th June as planned.
With loads of other race meetings and big races to look forward to this month, we expect the best bookies will be pulling out all the stops with racing offers and free bets. We’ll feature all the best of them right here, so check back ahead of any races on which you are planning to bet!
What makes a good horse racing free bet?
Free bets come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from £5 upwards. But it is not just the size of a free bet that should catch your eye, there are a number of other questions that should be asked when you consider whether a free bet is worth its salt.
Of course, the factor that should be of primary concern when picking a bookmaker to join is whether they are actually any good. We only feature the very best betting sites for horse racing on RacingBettingOffers.com, and these are bookies we’ve used ourselves for years and who we trust implicitly.
How much do you need to bet to get the free bet?
Some free bets are a straight, simple 100% match of your first bet. That means that if you join a bookie and place a bet of, say, £25, you will be credited with a free bet of £25.
Other bookies, though, stray from the conventional 100% matched free bet, which can either be to your benefit or detriment depending on whether they offer a greater or lesser percentage. Some bookies make it obvious what you need to do to get the free bet. Though with some others you have to dig into the terms and conditions a little more to be sure.
Are there rollover requirements?
While we’re mentioning terms and conditions, always check to see if there are any rollover or wagering requirements that must be met before you can withdraw winnings from your free bet(s). Typically you will have to bet through your initial deposit (i.e. place your first bet with a bookie) and then the free bet in full before you are able to withdraw any winnings.
Some bookies, however, require you to bet through the value of your free bet (or free bet plus your initial deposit) a certain number of times before you are permitted to withdraw any winnings. This is not a massive problem per se, as long as you are able to pick winning bets! (Our betting tips might help on that front!)
Are there minimum odds for qualifying bets or free bets themselves?
Another thing to look out for is whether your qualifying bet – or indeed the bet you place with your free bet – must be placed at certain odds. Many bookies require the qualifying bet to be placed at minimum odds of evens, for instance, though others are happy to let you bet at 1/2 or even 1/5 when qualifying for your free bet.
Are free bets really free?
When bookies offer ‘free bets’ it is important to note that the meaning of ‘free’ is a little flexible. It would be more accurate in most cases to call these ‘buy one, get one free bets’. The reason being, once you join a racing betting site, if order to qualify for the free bet or welcome bonus, you generally have to place a real money bet at odds above a certain minimum.
We are not saying that free bets and bonuses are not worth grabbing of course, just that you read the full terms and conditions of any betting offer you are planning to claim. And we always advocate that you Gamble Responsibly.
Betting is, by its nature, risky, so never bet money you cannot afford to lose, never borrow money to gamble with (that includes loans or credit cards) and always keep a tally of your bets so you can quickly see how much you have won or lost.
