Bet365 Feature Race Offer – How it Works

In this document, I use Bet365 Feature Race as an example, but all the methods we discuss here can perfectly apply to Bet365 ITV Racing Offerbet365 itv racing offer image, because as said these 2 offers are completely identical.

Bet365 Feature Race 4/1 Offer T&C

Bet365 says “Back any single winner at 4/1 or more on a bet365 Feature Race and you can have a risk free bet to the same stake (up to £50) on the next bet365 Feature Race. This offer applies to the FIRST single bet placed by a customer on each bet365 Feature Race. ” So;

  • You need to place 2 consecutive races with your own money.
  • The first race: £50 (as a maximum refund amount) bet to be placed over the odds of 4/1 (5.o) even after a dead heat or Rule 4. So even if you take the early price, the SP (starting price) must be over 4/1 to qualify.
  • If your horse wins in the 1st race, your next bet in the 2nd race will become Risk Free Bet. It means you will receive refund as £50 cash credit if your horse loses, you will not be given the £50 credit if the next horse wins again, you only get it after a looser as specified below;
Bet365 Feature Race T&C also says;
“If your risk free bet also wins at odds of 4/1 or more, you qualify for a risk free bet on the next bet365 Feature Race. Keep backing those winners and we’ll keep giving you risk free bets! If your risk free bet loses, your stake (up to £50*) will be refunded to your account.
Sounds nice, but understand carefully, this means when you have a winner you will not receive £50 refund until you have a loser, even if you find 10 winners in a row.

4/1 Requirement

Bet365 used to require 5.0< odds at SP (Starting Price), and the current T&C is not clear. But obviously they have changed it into “The price you take” as seen from the below screenshot of the live chat, which one of our members sent to us;

Bet365 Feature Race & ITV Racing 4/1 Offers – How To Make it Risk-Free

Matched Betting As A Basic Method

To guarantee the profits, we don’t use any Bet365 loophole related to Bet365 Horse Racing, but as briefly said, we use an established legit method a.k.a. Matched Betting.

Just in case you’re completely new to this concept, suggest take a look at Matched Betting For Dummies – 9 Essential Things. But allow me to recap how it works very briefly by using Bet365 Feature Race 4/1 Offer. We show you the detail process with the real example later, thus here please try to understand the concept. Matched betting is all about turning bookmaker’s offer often in the form of Free Bet into Real Cash Profit. The simplest example is Bet XX Get YY Free Bet. So, first we have to Bet XX, which is so called Qualifying Bet. It involves;

  • 2 transactions of Back (bet on win) Horse A (odds is 5<) at Bookmaker & Lay the same Horse A (bet on NOT win) at Betting Exchange such as Betfair or Smarkets so that you cover all outcomes.
  • No matter what your Horse A’s result, your losing & winning will cancel out each other. In the real practice, usually 2 bets are not perfectly offset due to the odds difference & exchange commission therefore you make a small loss called Qualifying Loss. For full details of this process, take a look at Matched Betting Starting Guide: Welcome Bonus (2): Place Qualifying Bet. However, if your Horse A wins, your next Feature Race will become Risk-Free.
  • Then you repeat the same transactions, but this time your bet is Risk-Free, means if your horse loses you will get Cash Refund (not free bet thus more value, that’s one of the benefits of Bet365 Feature Race offer). Therefore when your horse loses, the whole stake – qualifying loss (both first race & 2nd race) will become your net profit.
  • Success factor is how to minimize this qualifying loss.
Importantly, as seen from the above process, betting exchange makes critical role in matched betting. This report shows all top 4 betting exchange latest welcome bonuses & how to extract cash risk-free from each bonus, remember you will have more Bet365 matched betting opportunities if you have more betting exchange accounts, so try to increase your exchange accounts. In case your residential country is not allowed to sign-up these exchanges, use this solution

BTW, some people blindly believe matched betting is only for UK & Ireland, completely Wrong, by using this approach, everybody in the world including US citizens can make decent profits from this risk-free betting technique. For Germany, Austria and Switzerland residents, this programme focuses on these 3 countries. 


Instruction Of 3 Approaches & Each Process

There are 3 approaches to tackle this offer, which are;

  • Standard Matched Betting Approach
  • Risk Free Approach
  • Lock-In Profit Approach.

I’ll show the process for each approach by using the real race I bet which is;Bet365 Feature Race Schedule *Click “+” or Any Part Of the Paragraph To Keep On Reading.

1. Standard Matched Betting Approach

Simply to find the horse at 5.0 over odds and close between Bet365 & Exchange. Back the horse at Bet365 and Lay Off at exchange like Betfair or SMarkets. My 1st race was Catterick at 14:15 and the below shows Bet365 Odds for this race; (Read More --)
What you need to do is putting the matched betting concept I explained before into practice.

How To Chose The Horse

Although choosing Short odds is one of the basic tactics in the qualifying bet, we shouldn’t forget that my horse’s odds need to be over 4/1 (5.0). Importantly, it is not the odds you bet but is applying to the SP (Starting Price).

Since odds fluctuates a lot, it’s safer to select the horse which doesn’t seem to be promising enough to go below 5.0. Having checked at Bet365, the top favourite “Halcyon Days” is already below 5.0. When I look at oddschecker )see the below table), the odds of “Nomoreblackjack” is shrinking (blue color) means there is a large chance of going below 5.0.

Considering the lay odds, the choices remain “Caprice Danglais” & “Alchimix”. Although the odds of “Caprice Danglais” are drifting (pink color), given the fact that Best365 gives the highest odds to “Caprice Danglais” among the bookies, I decided to bet on “Caprice Danglais”.

And SMarkets (Exchange) odds just 10 minutes before starting the race was;

It decreased to 6.2 from 6.4, not much but good news. I quickly input those info into the Tricky Bet (free matched betting calculator) which calculates the required lay stake (pointed by blue arrow) and anticipated loss of £2.41-43 (red circle);Bet365 Feature Race Profit & Loss

Standard Matched Betting Approach Conclusion

So, there are 2 scenarios;

  • if “Caprice Danglais” loses, I will incur £2.43 qualifying loss then move on by hoping the win in the next race
  • if “Caprice Danglais” wins, I will receive £50 Risk Free bet in the next feature race in 5 hours 17:15 at Kempton. I will gain average £40 value (around 80% of the refund) from the risk free bet in the next race if you follow the instruction below. Therefore my final profit will be £37.57 (£40 – £2.43 above qualifying loss).
Risk Free Bet Instruction

When I receive the Risk Free Bet, we use the approach of SNR free bet that is Underlaying setting. Therefore, we should select long odds (high odds) horse with tight odds between Bet365 & SMarkets.  For those who are not familiar with how to extract risk free bet, go Risk Free Bet (Refund to Lose Bet) Lock In Profit.

End 1,

2. Risk Free Profit Approach

Next approach is Risk Free Approach. What we're going to do is Overlaying up to the level where I achieve break-even when my horse loses. The Tricky Bet calculator effectively calculates at the same time as below; (Read More --)
Bet365 Feature Race Risk Free Approach Calculation As you see, it shows £0.00 if my horse loses. However if my horse wins, the loss is gone up to £15.30. Then, 2 possible scenarios are;
  • if “Caprice Danglais” loses, I’m break-even then move on by hoping the win in the next race
  • if “Caprice Danglais” wins, I will receive £50 Risk Free bet in the next feature race in 5 hours 17:15 at Kempton. I’ll expect around £24.70 profit (£40 final expected refund value – £15.30 above qualifying loss).
End 2,

3. Lock-In Profit Approach

The last approach is not only to make it Risk Free but to Guarantee Profit. We can do it by further overlaying as shown in the calculator. (Read More --)
There is a custom lay function where you slide the bar to adjust the lay amount & profit / loss;Bet365 Feature Race Lock-In Profit Approach Custom Calculation As shown, if my horse loses I can now create £3.92. However if my horse wins, the loss is gone up to £36.10.

As a basic guideline, we have to structure overlay;

  • not to exceed around £36 loss when the horse wins, otherwise it will be difficult to absorb it in the next race and may end up with loss given the expected value of £50 refund is £40.

Then, 2 possible scenarios are;

  • if "Caprice Danglais" loses, I now £3.92 lock-in profit then keep moving on
  • if "Caprice Danglais" wins, I will receive £50 Risk Free bet in the next feature race in 5 hours 17:15 at Kempton. I'll expect also around £3.90 profit (£40 final expected refund value - £36.10 above qualifying loss).

Actual Bet365 Result

As seen in the below official record, the top favorite "Halcyron Days" won and my "Caprice Danglais" finished 5th. Bet365 Feature Race Winner Sportinglife

Therefore, at this stage,

  • Standard Matched Betting Approach lost £2.43.
  • Risk Free Approach just resulted in break-even.
  • Lock-In Approach made £3.92 profit.

Back A Winner - Other Bookmakers' Offers

The method we share in this document can perfectly work not only for Bet365 Feature or ITV 4/1 Racing but all other similar offers, such as;

Betfair ITV Racing 3/1 Offer

If your horse wins at SP odds of 3/1 or greater (Racing Post decision final), you will receive a free bet to the same value of your stake, up to £25;betfair back a winner ascot offer For this particular offer, we prepared for the step-by-step instruction, so please go Back A Winner Betfair Offer – How To Lock-In Profit.

Bet365 Feature Race & ITV Racing Offer - Conclusion

This time, the result supports Lock-In Profit Approach. However, there is no right or wrong when it comes to the choice. Let me evaluate this offer in the form of EV (Expected Value) as usual.

Expected Value

For the lock-in method approach, we already know its Positive EV because it's a guaranteed equal profit of £3.92 no matter what the final outcome to be. For the Standard Matched Betting Approach & Risk Free Approach. Since it's Bet & Hope concept. For calculating EV, we can use the below calculation formula;

  • EV = (Outcome A x Probability %) – (Outcome B x Probability %)

Outcome is the possible 2 scenarios I attach for each approach. Outcome A is Receiving Refund in the next race, which means my horse Wins in the 1st race. Outcome B. is Not Win. Probability in the above case is calculated based on the odds of my horse.

The odds of "Halcyon Days" is 6.o. The implied probability of win is 16.7% (1.0 / 6.o x 100). Then not win is 83.3%. Standard Matched Betting Approach EV = (£37.57 x 16.7%) - (£2.43 x 83.3%) = £6.27 - £2.02 = £4.25 Risk Free Approach EV = (£24.7 x 16.7%) - (£0 x 83.3%) = £4.12 - £0 = £4.12 EV will fully depend on the odds. Shorter and Tighter (between Bet365 & Exchange) odds will bring about better EV.

The above example shows better EV of Standard Matched Betting Approach than Risk Free Approach mainly because of its relatively tight odds (6.0: 6.2). When the odds gap becomes wider the qualifying loss becomes bigger. Thus, the Risk Free approach will give you better EV. The most important thing is to chose the horse with the narrowest gap between Bet365 back odds & the Exchange lay odds as a basic but critical theory. Just as a reminder.


All the approaches show Positive EV. The choice mainly depends on individual's preference. With our approach, Bet365 Feature Race Offer & ITV Racing Offer are absolutely profitable. You don’t always win. Say, you may not get refund from the 5 races in a row but the refund of the following 2 races will make the whole 7 bets profitable.

So don’t be fooled by variance. As long as you keep taking the positive EV offers like this, you will make a lot of money. You don’t need to believe me but believe the mathematics. Bet365 offers this promotion every day when the horse racing happens, multiple races on ITV televised day like 10 races on Saturday, and 2 featured races on the day without ITV broadcasting.
So there are hundreds of qualified horse racing you can bet, and assuming you pocket average £5 per race, you could make thousands every year. However, if you bet all the races, you are most likely to be gubbed. So, many people say up to around 70%. It means if there are 20 qualified races in 1 week, on Saturday they often offer nearly 10 ITV races, you may not want to bet more than 15 races. Just a guideline without any guarantee.

Avoid Gubbing & After Being Restricted

if you keep taking too much value from the bookmakers, you may most likely to be gubbed, means your betting account will be restricted. Actually, it's just a matter of time before most of the soft bookies limit your account if you do matched betting without any precautionary actions.

So, we have prepared the following 2 guides - One is Before Resriction, The Other One is After Restriction; We believe the above 2 guides will help you keep exploiting unfair bookies, means will enable you to make money on the side reliably for long-term.
