How to make the most of your betting accounts
If you have a betting account with either bet365, Betfred or Coral you can collect Rewards4Racing points every week without even thinking about it. For every £1 you stake on sports bets with any of our 3 partners, you will collect 1 Rewards4Racing point. You can collect up to 2,000 points per month with each partner – meaning you can add £60 every month to your Rewards4Racing balance.
To ensure you are making the most of your betting accounts follow our simple tips below so you don’t miss out on any of those betting points:
1. Make sure your betting account and Rewards4Racing have the same email address - This is how we track and add the points so this needs to be correct!
2. Log in to your Rewards4Racing account every month – If you don’t log in to your Rewards4Racing account on a regular basis your betting points will be retracted. There’s loads to do on our website so you would be mad not to keep coming back!
3. Keep an eye on our competitions – we run several betting related competitions throughout the year such as Sweepstakes and Predict The Winner competitions. Prizes include free bets, hospitality tickets and free points.
And that’s all. Follow the steps above and your balance will keep building. If you want to know more about betting and some other helpful tips visit our ‘Betting Explained’ post.
Whether you bet online, in shop or on course it can be difficult to understand everything that is going on, especially with some many different options available. You can only collect Rewards4Racing points when betting online but this post will give you some handy tips to make the most of betting wherever you are.
A fun bet to do when you’re at the races and it will only cost you £2! Pick a horse in the first 6 races at the meeting of your choice and if they all place you’re a winner. This is easier said than done (I’ve only won it twice!) but the payout should be worth it. Back in December 2015 the Cheltenham placepot paid a massive £91,000 for a £1 stake!
A similar bet to the placepot but you really need the winners to make this one count. This bet is available every Saturday and during most major Festivals. Pick 6 winners of the selected races and you could be looking at a payout in the hundreds of thousands. Don’t despair if you don’t have all 6 winners, there is a consolation prize for getting 6 placed horses so keep your slip safe even if one loses!
4 selections. 15 bets. It may sound slightly complicated but a Lucky 15 could keep you interested all day! Rather than having your all your selections in an accumulator a Lucky 15 gives you some assurance if any selections let you down.
Here is how the Lucky 15 Works:
- 4 Single Bets
- 6 Double Bets
- 4 Treble Bets
- 1 Fourfold/Accumulator
If all your selections win then every bet above is a winner. However, if one the fourfold disappears and the payout on the singles/doubles/trebles will decrease. As this is made up of 15 separate bets, you have to times your unit stake by 15. For example, a Lucky 15 with a £1 unit stake (£1 on every separate bet above) will come to a total of £15. Try adding 4 selections to your betslip with our betting partners and see what your winnings will be!
Even if your horse doesn’t win a race you could still pick up some winnings if you bet on them each-way. This is a good way of betting if you are selecting horses with bigger odds. The number of runners and conditions of race have an effect on the each way ‘terms’ which are explained briefly below.
7 Runners or Less: 2 Places
8-15 Runners: 3 Places
16 Runners + (Handicaps Only): 4 Places
For example, if you placed a bet of £5 each-way on horse at odds of 20/1 you are effectively placing a £5 bet for it to win at odds of 20/1 and £5 bet for it to place at 4/1 (Place terms are either ¼ or 1/5 the odds depending on several factors). If the horse wins you get paid out on both parts of the bet whereas if it places you would only collect the £5 at a ¼ or 1/5 of the price.
