ITV Racing 15 to Go Offer – Unibet

It’s a big Easter weekend of ITV Racing and you don’t want to miss this Unibet ’15 to Go’ offer! Simply bet on selected ITV races in the 15 minutes before the scheduled start time and if we back the winner, Unibet will match our stake with a free bet, up to £20.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £25.00+ and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Minimum stake of £5.00.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed on the selected ITV races in the 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed at odds of 2.00 (evens) or greater.
  • To be eligible, we must click the ’15 to Go’ button that appears on our betslip after entering our stake.
  • If our selected horse wins, Unibet will match our stake as a free bet, up to £20.00.

Qualifying bets

The Unibet ’15 to Go’ promotion is very similar to the Bet365 4/1 offer.

If you’d like more information about qualifying bets and how they work, please see my qualifying bets guide.

This offer is available on the following 12 ITV races across Easter weekend…

Friday 2nd April 2021
14:15 and 14:50 Newcastle

Saturday 3rd April 2021
13:50, 14:25, 15:00 and 15:35 Musselburgh
14:05, 14:40 and 15:15 Haydock

Monday 5th April 2021
15:15 and 17:00 Fairyhouse
16:35 Kempton

It’s entirely up to you which horses you place your qualifying bets on, though we won’t know what odds are available until 15 minutes before the off.

Broctune Red is favourite to win the 14:15 Newcastle at back odds of 2.625 (13/8). I’ll use lay odds of 2.80 to illustrate how this offer works and I’ll update the table at the bottom of the post with some genuine selections at the end of each day.

Either exchange works for this offer

Betfair and Smarkets are both great options for this offer. If you’ve not used one of them, now is a great time to give them a try.

  • Money back as cash up to £20
  • 0% commission for 60 days

Option 1:

We know that if our horse wins, we’ll be able to convert our £20.00 free bet into 80% cash. We can therefore add 0.80 to the back odds to get our effective odds…

2.625 + 0.80 = 3.425

Using my Matched Betting Calculator, we simply enter 3.425 as our back odds instead of 2.625 and lay the amount shown. Overlaying like this is fine, but the guaranteed profits are likely to be small.

Option 2:

Our second option is to lay our bets as normal and hope some of our horses win for bigger profits.

We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £18.88…

Place £20.00 on Broctune Red @ 2.625 = Potential profit of £32.50

Betfair logo

Lay £18.88 on Broctune Red @ 2.80 = Potential liability of £33.98


Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

OutcomeUnibetBetfairFree BetProfit/Loss
Broctune Red wins+ £32.50– £33.98+ £16.00£14.52 profit
Broctune Red loses– £20.00+ £18.50£1.50 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £14.52 if Broctune Red wins, otherwise we’ll lose £1.50. Risking £1.50 to make a potential profit of £14.52 gives us effective odds of 10.68. So, given that Broctune Red is odds of just 2.625 (13/8) to win the race, this is a profitable offer in the long run.

We won’t find a suitable selection for every race, nor should we be aiming to bet on every race. It’s best to be selective, but with 12 races to go at, there’s an overall potential profit of £25.00+ up for grabs on this Unibet ’15 to Go’ offer!

If eligible, free bets will be credited within 2 hours of the weigh-in and will be valid on horse racing for 7 days. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

If you’re unsure how to convert your £20.00 free bets into £16.00 cash (80%), please see my free bets guide for a walkthrough of how it should be done.
