Royal Ascot takes place this week and it will be one of the biggest events of the year for bookmakers. It features eight Group 1 races and attracts many of the world’s finest sprinters and stayers, while all the leading trainers and jockeys in the business will be there to battle for glory. Prize money is north of £7.3 million and the prestige associated with landing a winner at Royal Ascot is huge, ensuring a strong field in every race. Bookmakers will be keen to win new business around the festival. Betfred is giving away £40 worth of free bets when you bet £10 on the meeting. Use the promo code ASCOT40 and place a £10 bet on a market where the odds are even money (2.0) or greater. You will then receive £30 in free bets and an extra £10 if your qualifying bet is a loser, taking the potential total to £40. The free bets will appear within 10 hours of the qualifying bet being settled. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.
William Hill will give you back you money as cash if your horse finishes second in various races. The offer is valid for up to £10 or €10 and it applies to selected races, but a big meeting like Royal Ascot should be covered. Four or more horses must run in a race for it to be applicable, and your selection must be 3/1 or higher as a starting price. Hills customers can also benefit from three bet boosts on horse racing singles per day, up to a £20 or €20 win. Also look out for daily odds boosts on cricket and football matches at the bookmaker. The Africa Cup of Nations starts this week and William Hill will give customers a free £5 bet every time their selection wins in 90 minutes. You have to stake £20 on a game at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or greater to qualify, and if the bet is successful you will be credited with an extra £5 by noon the following day.
Paddy Power is offering new customers a risk free £10 free bet and that is a great way to dip your toe into the wonderful world of sports betting.

Many offers like this return your money in the form of a free bet, but Paddy Power will give you cash and allow you to walk away. It is a busy sporting week, with Ascot, the cricket World Cup, the French Grand Prix and big international football tournaments being held across the globe, so there are plenty of options for you to make that £10 wager. A smaller bookmaker, Smarkets, is giving away a risk free £10 bet on the 4.20pm race at Ascot each day.
