Bet365 Feature Race 4/1 Offer & ITV Racing 4/1 Offer – Snapshot
Bet365 runs 2 ongoing key horse racing promotions, which are Feature Race 4/1 offer & ITV Racing 4/1 Offer (these pages show the Bet365 horse racing today offer). 4/1 offers of Feature Race & ITV Racing are completely identical and allow you to make Risk-Free Profits every day.
ITV Racing 4/1 offer is for the races televised on ITV that is every Saturday – See ITV Racing Broadcasting Schedule & big meetings such as Cheltenham Festival or Royal Ascot etc.; The Feature Race 4/1 offer is available on two races per day when there is no scheduled live ITV racing. This means Bet365 provides you with a 4/1 offer effectively every day.
Bet365 4/1 Offers are therefore Everyday promotions and with the method in this guide, you neither need Bet365 horse racing tips nor a Bet365 live stream to chase the race if you don’t have time.
You can profit from every single race, regardless of the result. We will show you how.
Warning: Bet365 is a typical soft bookie, which means if you profit a lot from their promotions, your account is quickly gubbed (restricted). If you’re a serious punter, suggest accessing the list of sharp bookies that never restrict your account.
Bet365 Feature Race Offer – How it Works
In this document, I use Bet365 Feature Race as an example to explain how to lock in profits. But all the methods we discuss here can perfectly apply to Bet365 ITV Racing Offer 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 (5.0) 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 a Risk-Free Bet. It means you will receive a refund as a £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;
Sounds nice, but understand carefully, this means when you have a winner you will not receive a £50 refund until you have a loser, even if you result in 10 winners in a row.
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 Strategies – 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 4/1 Horse Racing, but as briefly said, we use an established legit method a.k.a. Matched Betting.
If you’re new to matched betting, 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 detailed process with the real example later, thus here please try to understand the concept.
Matched betting is all about turning the bookmaker’s offer often in the form of a Free Bet into Real Cash Profit. The simplest example is Bet XX Get YY Free Bet like 888 Sports Sign-Up Offer. In this offer, first, we have to Bet XX, which is a 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 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, which means if your horse loses you will get a Cash Refund (not a free bet thus more value, that’s one of the benefits of the Bet365 Feature Race offer). Therefore when your horse loses, the whole stake minus qualifying loss (both first race & 2nd race) will become your net profit.
- The success factor is how to minimize this qualifying loss.

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;

Bet365 Feature Race & ITV Racing Offer - Conclusion
This time, the result supports the Lock-In Profit Approach. However, there is no right or wrong when it comes to choice. Let me evaluate this offer in the form of EV (Expected Value) as usual.
For the lock-in method approach, we already know it's Positive EV because it's a guaranteed equal profit of £3.92 no matter what the final outcome is.
When it comes to 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 %)
The outcome is the possible 2 scenarios I attach for each approach. Outcome A is Receiving a 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 6.0. The implied probability of a 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 a better EV of the Standard Matched Betting Approach than the 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 a better EV.
The most important thing is to choose 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 an 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 a 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 in 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 an average of £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 qualifying races in 1 week, on Saturday they often offer nearly 10 ITV races, you may not want to bet on more than 15 races. Just a guideline without any guarantee.
Avoid Gubbing & After Being Restricted
if you keep exploiting too much value from the bookmakers, you may most likely be gubbed, which 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 Restriction, The Other One is After Restriction;
