Cheltenham Festival 2017: Best Bookmaker Offers

There is no week in racing like Cheltenham Festival week for knockout bookie concessions. In fact, this site has largely given up promoting bookmakers because their offers are normally so loaded with unfair conditions. But the bookmakers know this is one of the biggest 'acquisition' windows - periods when they can get new account signups - in the sporting calendar; and they make it worth our while.

So here are the pick of the bookmaker offers that I can see (it's a shortlist at the moment, and the first one is the standout if you don't already have a Victor account).

One word of warning: please, please, PLEASE do your own due diligence on an offer if you have reservations. Some are location specific, some won't apply if using certain payment methods, and so on. Make sure you check.


NEW customers: Bet £10, and get a free £2 bet on EVERY race at the Festival (28 of them)



ALL customers: Money back as a free bet if you lose in the first race each day (£20 max, applies to bets struck now as well as on the day, NRNB)

NEW customers: £10 FREE bet - NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED



ALL customers: Best Odds Guaranteed and NRNB on ALL Festival races. Extra place concessions will be available from the day before the Festival races. Plus, for every winner at 4/1 or bigger you bet on an ITV racing race, you'll get a risk-free bet to the same stake on the next ITV racing race.


Tote Ireland

NEW customers: Get up to €100 cash back. Quote 'GEEGEEZ1' in the Promo Code box to qualify. Full terms here.

ALL customers: Bet €20 to €100 win single through Tote and if SP is greater get paid at SP. Full terms here.

AND... if you make your placepot bets into Irish Tote, you get paid at the UK dividend (same with all bets here) and you help at the same time. [We get a small rebate for every euro invested into the pools, which we use to fund our free site content].

    I’ve read the betvictor offer and there’s no mention of the first bet having to be evens or greater to qualify. I read it as you could bet on a 1-10 if you wanted. Did I read it right? Cheers

      Hi Peter

      I think you are right. Now I’ve double checked I can’t find any reference to minimum odds of evens for the BetVictor qualifying bet. I’ll remove that from the blurb above.

    Hi Matt. Attractive offer for new customers with betway. Deposit £50 and get 100% matching bonus. Also, full refund (up to £10) on first losing bet on the first race for each day (like Skybet). Good luck for the week ahead and thanks for all your work on the site – fab way to spend Sunday evening! Mark J

      Many thanks, Mark. I try to steer clear of the offers with the ‘rollover’ requirements. This one seems to have that – see below. Very pleased you’ve enjoyed poring over some of the Chelto content, and hopefully it’ll pay its way.
