As the famed Cheltenham Festival draws closer, bookmakers are already gearing up for what they know will be an absolutely massive 4 day event. Every year, the Cheltenham Festival ends up being the biggest or second biggest in terms of the sheer amount of money being wagered, and so bookmakers are well aware of the amount of interest that it commands amongst bettors.
Bearing that in mind, it should come as no surprise that many bookmakers are offering various special offers in conjunction with the event itself. Some of these offers come in the form of credit that can be used to bet on races, but other special deals are not to be overlooked either! At the end of the day, you’ll also want to make sure that the bookmaker you choose is offering great odds for Cheltenham 2014 as well.
Scrutinizing the Special Offers
At the end of the day, you want to make sure that you’re getting the most bang for your buck – and to do that you need to scrutinize each and every one of the special offers that are available. Keep in mind that the fine print is particularly important, since it will contain the conditions that could be very relevant indeed.
There are a few areas in particular that you’ll want to look at, the first of which being the withdrawal conditions. Nowadays almost all offers involving ‘free credit’ come with strict conditions as to when and how that credit (or winnings generated by using it) can be withdrawn.
Another important area to pay attention to is how much of your own money you’ll need to put in to claim the special offer. In particular this applies to special offers that are activated after making a deposit, or something of that nature.
Last but certainly not least, the big question is whether or not the bookmaker is offering good odds. At the end of the day, there’s no point claiming a special offer only to find that the odds the bookmaker is offering is not as good as what you’d find elsewhere. In those situations, you might very well be better served by placing your bet with bookmakers that are offering better odds.
If you take the time to scrutinize these special offers, you should be able to find the ones that are truly worth claiming and will give you a little bit of a bonus when betting on the Cheltenham races!
