The Aintree meeting continues today, and for those lucky enough to be there (unfortunately not me), it’s ‘Ladies Day.’
Throughout the year, Bet365 run a very good promotion known as their ‘Channel 4/1’ promotion, and throughout the Aintree Festival, this is no different. The good thing about this promotion at this stage of the season though, is that you can use it on some top quality Horse Races, such as at Cheltenham, or here at Aintree.
How The Promotion Works – If you back a horse at odds of 4/1 or more on any race televised live on Channel 4 and it wins, you can have a risk free bet (to the same value) on the next live Channel 4 race.
This is where the offer gets better, because if your risk free bet also wins at odds of 4/1 or more, you will receive another risk free bet on the next live Channel 4 race, and so on.
Channel 4’s programme today runs from 1.35pm to 4.30pm, in which time there will be 5 races (2.00pm, 2.30pm, 3.05pm, 3.40pm and 4.15pm), which gives you plenty of chances to take advantage of this excellent offer.
To give you an example of how this offer works….. the 2.00pm race from Aintree is the first live race of the day on Channel 4, and there is currently only one horse (Josses Hill 2/1 favourite) under odds of 4/1. Working on the theory that the odds stay the same, this means that all the other 9 horses in this race potentially qualify for this offer.
So if you back the second favourite (currently Sgt Reckless at 5/1), and the horse wins at 5/1, you will qualify for a free bet on the next live televised race (2.30pm) from Aintree.
The maximum risk free bet you can receive is £50.00, per customer, per race. Your first bet on the race will be the qualifying bet, and your bet must be placed following the final declaration.
In theory, you could have a £50.00 bet on the first race, and win, and then not have to pay for a bet for the next 4 races. Obviously you would have to keep backing winners at 4/1 or greater, but even if it only gets you a free bet for one race, it’s worth it…. it’s still a £50.00 Free Bet.
Quite often when there is a big meeting, such as Cheltenham or Aintree, these sort of offers can be temporarily withdrawn, but in the case of Bet365 they are keeping this offer live, which is great testament to them and also great if you want to have a bet on a top quality race meeting like the Aintree Festival.
