ITV Racing 15 to Go Offer – Unibet

There’s a big schedule of ITV Racing this weekend 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 ITV races…

Race Date
14:15 Cheltenham Saturday 14th November 2020
14:50 Cheltenham Saturday 14th November 2020
15:25 Cheltenham Saturday 14th November 2020
13:50 Cheltenham Sunday 15th November 2020
15:00 Cheltenham Sunday 15th November 2020
15:15 Fontwell Sunday 15th November 2020

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.

I’ll use back odds of 6.00 (5/1) and lay odds of 6.20 for Mister Fisher in the 14:15 at Cheltenham on Saturday in the following example and I’ll update the bottom of the post with some actual selections after the races.

At the time of writing, laying our bets at Betfair is likely to give us the smallest qualifying losses.

Betfair are currently offering new customers 0% commission up to £500 for the first 30 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…

6.00 + 0.80 = 6.80

Using my Matched Betting Calculator, we simply enter 6.80 as our back odds instead of 6.00 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 £19.42…

Place £20.00 on Mister Fisher @ 6.00 = Potential profit of £100.00

Betfair logo

Lay £19.42 on Mister Fisher @ 6.20 = Potential liability of £100.98

Outcomes:

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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Free Bet Profit/Loss
Mister Fisher wins +£100.00 -£100.98 +£16.00 £15.02 profit
Mister Fisher doesn’t win -£20.00 +£19.03 £0.97 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £15.02 if Mister Fisher wins, otherwise we’ll lose £0.97. Risking £0.97 to make a profit of £15.02 gives us effective odds of 16.48. So, given that Mister Fisher is odds of just 6.00 (5/1) to win the race, this is a profitable offer in the long run.

This offer is available on 6 ITV races this weekend, giving us an overall potential profit of £25.00+ 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.

I’ll update the following table with some actual selections after the races…

Race Selection Back Odds Lay Odds Profit/Loss
Saturday 14:50 Cheltenham Golan Fortune 5.50 5.70 -£1.02
Saturday 15:25 Cheltenham Whatsupwithyou 6.00 6.40 -£1.57
Sunday 13:50 Cheltenham Discorama 2.875 3.05 -£1.40
Sunday 15:15 Fontwell Christmas In April 3.75 3.90 -£1.06
