Royal Ascot 2018 Matched Betting Guide
Royal Ascot is one of the biggest horse racing festivals of the year! There are 5 days of racing and plenty of risk-free offers for you all to be getting stuck in to!
This year is one of the best years ever as Bet365 have kindly given most people a free bet every day, William Hill a bet boost every race, and plenty of other bookies have also hopped on the band wagon in dishing out free bets. They're literally handing out money!

Risk Free Profit Offers
I highly recommend the Coral, Betway, Ladbrokes and Bet365 offers as these are the easiest, risk free and most profitable offers worth in total £53+ Profit.
There will also be lots of price boosts throughout the week, as well as a boost on every televised race from William Hill. You can make between £3-£5 from these boosts AND qualify for 2 Clear so it's well worth making sure you have cash in them.
Racing Refund Offers
There will be plenty of Racing refund offers from the bookmakers. We've consolidated most of them as "ITV refunds" as there are so many to list, however we've left the 2 Clear promotion separate as this offer is extremely lucrative and should definitely be attempted every race! Some of the common promotions for ITV racing are:
- Refund if your horse wins - Bet365, Betfair Sports
- Refund if your horse finishes 2nd to sp - Betway, SportingBet, Betfred, Ladbrokes

Extra Place Offers
Extra Places can be another source of juicy profit when there are big horse racing festivals. The potential profit is practically unlimited, so attempting these offers can be a great boost to your Matched Betting bank roll. It's basically when a bookmaker will pay out 4 places in a race for example, yet the exchange is only 3; you can make money here if 4th is paid out as both your back and lay bets will win.
Last year there were extra place offers on every day, with 2 races per day being exceptionally good in terms of extra places. You can check out our guide on how to complete extra place offers here. Extra places aren't a guaranteed profit unless you cover the whole field, but if you follow the guide and read the tips put together for you then you should hopefully hit some extra places and potentially make a few hundred £ almost risk-free!
OddsMonkey have the Extra Place Matcher which really helps when completing this offer as it saves you so much time. It's similar the the oddsmatcher however searches for extra place odds only, and show you how much you can make from each one.
Extra places can be quite scary at first as you don't want to make a mistake. Make sure you read our guide properly as it will tell you everything you need to know; and if you have any questions then just ask!
Oddsmonkey Royal Ascot Tools
You'll notice I recommend Oddsmonkey a lot for those moving from 'welcome offers' on to 'existing customer offers'. You can read all about the reasons why in my full Oddsmonkey Review.
It will be particularly useful over the Royal Ascot Festival period, for the reasons I detail below:
