ITV7 – How to Win £50,000
This is an absolute no brainer if you’re at home watching the ITV racing as you can effectively put down a 7 fold accumulator for free.
Pick the winner of seven different races, and you will win a share of £50,000. If there is no outright winner, then a prize of £1,000 is awarded to the closest participant.
You can enter via the app or via the website. The competition is powered by Sky Bet, so you will need an account to play. with.
Lucky 7 – Another chance to win £50,000
An alternative to the ITV7 is the Racing Post Lucky7, available to play via the William Hill website.
The mechanics of it are nearly identical to that of ITV7. Again it is free to enter. It is probably the races are broadcast on ITV, but there is a chance or two might not be.
Betting Offers for ITV Races
There are more horse racing offers than just the ones we’ve listed here. This list is exclusively for offers for races on ITV. It is possible to get money back specials from the likes of Paddy Power, Betfred and Totesport too. See our horse racing betting sites page for all the offers.
- ITV Racing Offer – Win and Get a Risk Free Bet for the Next Race
This offer is available for all races broadcast on ITV.
Back a winner at 4/1 or more and get a risk free bet on the next live ITV race (up to £50) at bet365. Offer applies to first single bet placed. Applies to Win and Each-Way Fixed Odds markets and Enhanced Place Terms markets only. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply. New and eligible customers only.
- ITV Racing Offer – Back a Winner and Get a £25 Free Bet
Betfair has a similar offer to bet365, with some small differences.
Back a winner at odds of 3/1, and Betfair will give you a £25 free bet.
Different to bet365, you’ll receive your free within 2 hours of the bet settling and you’ll have 48 hours to use it. You can use it on a different sport too, rather than simply the next race.
- ITV Racing Offer – 15 to Go Free Bet
This isn’t available for every single ITV televised race but is for the higher profile race days. It is best to check the Unibet website to see whether the offer is running or not.
Back a winner, and you’ll get a free bet equal to your stake for the next race. Back a winner with £20 and you’ll get a £20 free bet for the next race.
There are two main differences to the Betfair and bet365 we discussed. One difference is that the bet must be placed 15 minutes prior to the race starting. The second is that the qualifying minimum odds is lower at 2.00.
This makes the offer more appealing as you can back horses with a greater probability of winning.
