Offers updated as of 13th August 2018 and subject to change – see the Betfred promotions page for all the latest racing offers
Best Odds Guaranteed at Betfred
For top racing betting sites this comes as standard at the best racing betting sites but even so, not all bookies offer it. At Betfred, you can take the early price on any UK and Irish horse race and if your selection drifts and starts at longer odds you’ll get paid at the higher price.
Betfred: Home of the Lucky 15…and a Bonus or Two!
Betfred invented the Lucky 15 bet and if you like these multiples, or Lucky 31s or Lucky 63s then make sure you choose Betfred for your racing betting. If you place such a bet, or a Yankee, Canadian or Heinz if you prefer not to bother with the singles, using Betfred’s six Super Bonus Races, you’ll get a tasty bonus on an all-correct winner, with 15%, 50% and 100% depending on whether you pick 4, 5 or 6 winners.
At the other end of the spectrum, Betfred also have a very nice consolation prize if your Lucky bets turn out to be more like Not-That-Lucky 15s/31s/63s. If you end up with just one winner on a Lucky 15 you’ll get triple the odds, with four times the odds on a Lucky 31 and five times the normal odds paid for one winner on a Lucky 63.
This offer applies to EVERY SINGLE race in the UK and Ireland, as well as to Betfred virtual racing whilst if you prefer dogs to horses you can get the same offer on greyhounds (both real and virtual).
OK, so Cash Out is a) not exactly an offer and b) pretty common nowadays but it’s still a nice feature of Betfred that isn’t available with all bookies. Cash Out isn’t something that is normally associated with racing but it is available at Betfred so look out for any racing bets with the Cash Out symbol if that’s the way you roll!
Free Bet if 2nd to SP Favourite
Place a bet on Betfred’s selected races on your mobile or the main Betfred site and if your horse comes second to the SP favourite (dead heat rules apply) then Betfred will refund your stake as a free bet.
The maximum free bet per race is £10 and free bets, which will be stake not returned, will be added within 24 hours of your horse coming second. This is a very nice insurance policy, especially if you’re backing one of the favourites.
Extra Places at Betfred
Lots of bookies will sometimes offer an extra place here and there at the big meetings but Betfred’s Extra Places promo offers this most days. Usually the promotion applies to three races each day and the details of these can be found on the Betfred promotions page.
Typically this offer means that instead of getting each way bets paid to just three places, you’ll get paid out even if your horse finishes fourth. This varies from race to race though but you can see the terms and which races are being covered at Betfred today.
Half a Length or Less
Betfred’s Half a Length offer is a nice insurance for one of the most frustrating things about betting on the horses: a narrow defeat. Being pipped at the post hurts but with this promo, if your pick loses by half a length or less (based on the official result) then you’ll get your stake back as a stake not returned free bet. Nice.
The maximum refund per race is £10. This promo is available quite frequently with the specific race, races or meeting to which it applies shown on the promotions page.
Betfred owner Fred Done, who founded the company back in the 1960s with his brother, likes to think of himself as the Bonus King and as long as he keeps supplying great free bets, offers and racing bonuses, he can call himself whatever he likes as far as we’re concerned.
Betfred are one of the largest sponsors of UK horse racing and with that in mind, and as a traditional British high street bookie, it’s no wonder the Betfred site caters so well to racing and racing fans. Another brilliant betting site to offer Best Odds Guaranteed (as in fact almost all our featured bookies do), they also offer live streaming and a host of further bonuses just for racing fans.
As well as the generous welcome free bet and the various offers and promotions listed above for existing customers, Betfred also have lots of one-off racing promotions. These may be enhanced each way offers for the biggest races, price boosts or money back deals. Betfred usually offer Non-Runner No Bet for the Grand National and Cheltenham too for those that like to get their best on early!
All in all Betfred are clearly an excellent bookie for sports betting fans – especially those that, like us, love betting on the horses.
Other Offers at Betfred Sportsbook
Obviously racing is our main focus but we know most people who like to bet on the horses also enjoy the odd bet on a range of sports.
Like most of the old school UK bookies, Betfred are especially good for the “original” sports that were the meat and drink of betting shops when they were first legalised. That means there is no doubt that Betfred are great for racing, both horses and dogs, as well as football.
However, Betfred are also a good choice no matter what you want to bet on and they offer a range of other offers and promotions too.
As with the racing offers these change but some long-term offers are listed below, with more info available at Betfred:
- Double Delight, Hat-Trick Heaven – this promo can boost your winnings on first scorer bets if they go on to score two or three goals in the game. Similar offers are sometimes available for rugby and the NFL
- Acca Insurance – acca insurance often gives you your stake back as a free bet on specific accas if just one legs doesn’t win. This is usually for football but sometimes other sports too.
- Enhanced Each Way Terms – as with racing, Betfred usually have enhanced each way terms for the big golf events, including all four majors
- Price Boosts – on select events Betfred may temporarily boost the odds on a fancied selection. Details of these are usually shown on the homepage when available and maximum stakes may apply
