Which Bookies Are Paying 5 Places Each Way?

A guide to the bookmakers offering additional each way places at sport's biggest events.

5 Places Each Way

It's a question regularly asked by horse racing punters: which bookmakers pay out 5 places each way when others are only paying 3 or 4 at best? In today's online betting world when bookmakers have to offer better promotions to win business, offering additional each way places across the biggest races and feature handicaps is a strategy a few are now pushing. 5 and even 6 places each way are regularly offered across racing's biggest races, but also across the weekly feature handicap races as shown live on ITV Racing.

We track the number of extended each way places offered across all ITV Racing live races on a weekly basis by the leading online bookmakers. We track bet365, Betfair Sportsbook, Betfred, BetVictor, Coral, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Stan James, Sky Bet, Totesport and William Hill. Currently Sky Bet dominate the extended each way market, regularly giving punters additional place value on televised meetings as well as across the premium races as you can see in our tracker further down the page.

2017 Bookmaker Recommendations

We recommend Sky Bet as they're the Number 1 for each way places. Sky Bet's additional place promotions blow the online competition into the weeds, with the Leeds-based bookmaker often offering an additional 2 each way places across handicaps with over 16 runners. Yes 2 additional places! Terms tend to be at 1/5 odds for the place, with Sky Bet in a majority of cases offering an additional place over and above the opposition.

These additional each way place promotions are available to both new and existing customers. So if you haven't got an active Sky Bet account take advantage of their new customer promotions as highlighted below.

For those looking for an alternative to Sky Bet, currently we would recommend Paddy Power who again rarely disappoint when it comes to offering an additional each way place on the big races. Paddy Power always offer an additional place each way across The Derby, Grand National, Scottish and Welsh Nationals and plenty more feature races throughout the season. They aren't quite as prevalent on ITV4 presented handicaps as Sky Bet, but they are as close as you'll find currently online.

Horse Racing Full 1/4 Odds Place Payouts

Matt Chapman of ITV Racing and At The Races fame is a huge campaigner against online bookmakers who pay out 1/5 odds for the place on horse racing each way bets. It's a situation that's developed of late and unfortunately more and more bookmakers are doing it. This is how many bookmakers are now paying out 1/5 odds each way across a vast number of races with fields between 8 and 11 runners.

  • Non-Handicap Races: 8 or more Runners: A 1/5th the odds over 3 places (1st, 2nd and 3rd place)
  • Handicap Races: 8 -11 Runners: A 1/5th the odds over 3 places (1st, 2nd and 3rd place)

However not all online bookmakers are working to these 1/5 rules. We monitor all live ITV Racing broadcast races and undoubtedly bet365 payout full 1/4 odds on more live broadcast horse races than any other online bookmaker. They also paid out full 1/4 odds each way places on every 2017 Cheltenham Festival race - that was 28 in total. That 25% for the place promotion on ALL Cheltenham races also included an amazing 9 races where bet365 also offered an additional each way place over and above the standard industry terms.

Their ITV Racing package also contains the ITV Racing 4/1 Offer, where punters who back a winner with a 4/1 or bigger price receive a risk-free bet* up to a stake of £50 or €50 on the next race. Keep on backing those 4/1 or above winners on ITV or ITV4 races and the risk-free bets keep coming. * Country restrictions apply. To see the full bonus terms for the ITV 4/1 promotion click here.
