Cheltenham Festival 2017 – hard luck bets

By | March 2, 2017

Grab victory from the jaws of defeat!

Sometimes, you’re just having a bad day. We’re not talking about close-run things like being beaten by a nose or refusing to fall (that we cover on the Losing Bets page). We mean ‘hard luck bets’ on those days where your horse gets disqualified, or only one leg of your Acca comes up.

On those days, you need some comfort. And RaceBets and Winner Sports know exactly what you want!



First Past the Post

So you’ve selected well, placed your bets, waited for the off, then sat back and watched your chosen one romp home victorious. And then you hear the dreaded words ‘Stewards Enquiry’! You wait for the result to come through, but you know only too well what’s going to happen!

If you’ve placed your bet with RaceBets, even if your horse is deemed a cheat, they’ll pay you out as if nothing ever happened!

  • Fixed odds and SP bets only
  • Single Win bets or win part of each way single bets only qualify
  • Exotic bets do not qualify
  • Day of race markets only
  • Winnings applied as real cash within 24 hours


Lucky Bet Booster

Here’s the scenario – you’ve selected six winners for the day and combined them all into a Lucky63 Acca. You watch the first five lose, but the sixth one comes in first. Normally, you’d be expecting a modest return on your outlay.

But RaceBets will turn that around for you with their Lucky Bet Booster! Even though only one horse won, they’ll give you quadruple odds on that one winner!

  • Lucky 15 Consolation: 10% win bonus. Only 1 winner = double the odds
  • Lucky 31 Consolation: 20% win bonus. Only 1 winner = treble the odds
  • Lucky 63 Consolation: 25% win bonus. Only 1 winner = quadruple the odds


Sign up at RaceBets

The offers above are available to you once you’ve registered as a RaceBets customer. If you don’t yet have an account, they’re offering a 100% matching deposit bonus up to £50.

However, for Cheltenham, we’d recommend taking advantage of one of their enhanced odds offers, which can see you get up to £40 for a £1 stake! It could be a much more profitable way to sign up!

Winner Sports

Lucky Streak

Winner Sports have a similar Acca money-back offer, though it’s not quite as generous as RaceBets. If you place a Lucky 15, Lucky 31 or a Lucky 63 and only have one winner, they’ll  double the odds.

This offer is available to existing Winner Sports customers on every race. If you don’t yet have an account, they’re currently offering a £200 new customer bonus.

To get your £200 bonus, follow these simple steps:

  • Open an account, make a deposit of £30 or more and you will be entitled to a 100% bonus on your qualifying deposit up to a maximum of £200.
  • You will need to deposit a minimum of £30 to qualify.
  • Once your first deposit has been accepted, accept the T&C’s of the “New Account Offer” and the bonus is yours!
