money back as a free bet

Isn’t it just frustrating to come in second place? Especially when you’ve bet money on a horse or a specific team to win, and come annoyingly close to seeing a good return, only to get robbed at the finish line.

Betway can certainly relate. And in an emphatic gesture, this well-established bookie is giving out £20 refund to those who bet on a horse that comes in second place.

To be eligible for this refund, you have to bet on a race winner from a racecourse with six or more runners. You should also note that you need to bet on odds of 1.5 or higher and that the offer is valid until 4th March.

Your refund will be credited as a free bet within 24 hours. However, for the most part, you’ll have the free bet in your account within the hour. 

Here’s what you need to know about Betway’s free bets:

  • You can’t use them to place multi-bets.
  • They expire within seven days.
  • You don’t qualify for your free bet when betting on enhanced price offers.
  • Ante bets don’t qualify for free bets.
