Unibet - ITV Racing 15 to Go Offer

It’s a big Saturday 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 five ITV races on Saturday 15th January 2022…

13:32, 14:40 and 15:15 Kempton
15:00 and 15:35 Warwick

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.

Champagne Court is favourite to win the 13:32 Kempton at back odds of 4.00 (3/1). I’ll use lay odds of 4.30 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 the 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…

4.00 + 0.80 = 4.80

Using my Matched Betting Calculator, we simply enter 4.80 as our back odds instead of 4.00 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 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 £18.69…

Place £20.00 on Champagne Court @ 4.00 = Potential profit of £60.00

Betfair logo

Lay £18.69 on Champagne Court @ 4.30 = Potential liability of £61.67

Outcomes

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

Outcome Unibet Betfair Free Bet Profit/Loss
Champagne Court wins + £60.00 – £61.67 + £16.00 £14.33 profit
Another horse wins – £20.00 + £18.31 £1.69 loss

So, we’ll make a profit of £14.33 if Champagne Court wins. Otherwise, we’ll lose £1.69. Risking £1.69 to make a potential profit of £14.33 gives us effective odds of 9.48. So, given that Champagne Court is odds of just 4.00 (3/1) 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 five 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…

15:15 Kempton
