There’s no shortage of betting offers to take advantage of all year round. As well as new customer offers which are available from most online bookies, betting offers such as free bets, refunds, extra places, best odds guaranteed, price boosts and more are available daily if you know where to look for them.
However, there are times throughout the year when bookmakers release an increased number of betting offers which can be extremely profitable for both matched bettors and general punters. These usually come about in the run-up and throughout major sporting events.
In this article, we’ll be taking a look at what these sporting events are and when they’re taking place.
The Cheltenham Festival is a four-day racing festival and takes place in March each year at Cheltenham Racecourse in Gloucestershire. It features the Cheltenham Gold Cup which is one of the most prestigious races on the horse racing calendar and has a prize fund of £625,000. The festival also attracts an estimated half a billion pounds of bets across the four days which means that bookmakers are battling for business from those punters. As a result, bookmakers run an increased number of betting offers around the time of the Cheltenham Festival which can be extremely profitable. Some offers you can expect to find during Cheltenham are enhanced signup offers, extra places, non-runner no bet, best odds guaranteed and many more.
2. The Grand National
The Grand National is one of the biggest horse races in the world and watched by an estimated 600 million people worldwide. It has a prize fund of a cool £1,000,000 but significantly more if bet on the race by punters. Similar to Cheltenham, when a high volume of bets are placed, bookmakers want those bets to be placed with them. Therefore, to attract customers, they run more betting promotions.
For the Grand National, bookmakers offer free bets, enhanced odds, best odds guaranteed, faller insurance and many more betting offers. You can take advantage of this list of free bets for the Grand National.
3. The World Cup / Euros
Football is one of the most popular sports to bet on and the World Cup is the biggest competition. The World Cup only takes place every four years but between those breaks, the European Championships take place. Both competitions attract a large number of bets and so bookmakers run an increased number of betting offers around this time.
There will be a large number of free bet offers available throughout the World Cup & Euros as well as price boosts, refund offers and more.
