Unibet - ITV Racing 15 to Go Offer

It’s a big week of ITV Racing, and you don’t want to miss this Unibet ’15 to Go’ offer! 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 of 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.
  • Applies to our first qualifying bet placed on selected ITV races in the 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
  • We must click the ’15 to Go’ button on our bet slip after entering our stake.
  • Minimum odds of 2.00 (evens) at the time of bet placement.
  • A minimum of 5 horses must run for this promotion to be valid.
  • 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.

Please see my qualifying bets guide if you’d like more information about them and how they work.

This offer is available on the following six ITV races this week…

Friday 26th November 2021
14:25 and 15:35 Newbury

Saturday 27th November 2021
13:50, 15:00 and 15:35 Newbury
14:05 Newcastle

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.

Fanion D’estruval is favourite to win the 14:25 Newbury on Friday at back odds of 3.50 (5/2). I’ll use lay odds of 3.75 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.

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…

3.50 + 0.80 = 4.30

Using my Matched Betting Calculator, we simply enter 4.30 as our back odds instead of 3.50 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 usual and hope 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 £18.77…

Place £20.00 on Fanion D’estruval @ 3.50 = Potential profit of £50.00

Betfair logo

Lay £18.77 on Fanion D’estruval @ 3.75 = Potential liability of £51.61

Outcomes

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

Outcome Unibet Betfair Free Bet Profit/Loss
Fanion D’estruval wins + £50.00 – £51.61 + £16.00 £14.39 profit
Another horse wins – £20.00 + £18.39 £1.61 loss

So, we’ll make a profit of £14.39 if Fanion D’estruval wins. Otherwise, we’ll lose £1.61. Risking £1.61 to make a potential profit of £14.39 gives us effective odds of 9.94. So, given that Fanion D’estruval is odds of just 3.50 (5/2) to win the race, this is a profitable offer in the long run.

We may not 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 eight 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 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 genuine selections after the races…

Race Selection Back Odds Lay Odds Profit/Loss
14:25 Newbury (Fri) Phoenix Way 6.00 6.20 £0.97 loss
13:50 Newbury (Sat) Masters Legacy 4.50 4.70 £1.16 loss
