A guide to the bookmakers offering additional each way places at sport's biggest events.
STOP PRESS! Grand National Day 2019 - 6th April 2019. Coral are offering a massive 6 places each way, 1/5 odds at the Grand National for bets placed online and mobile only! To claim 6 places each way on this year's race click here.
When it comes to big ITV Racing race meetings, Coral offer an excellent racing proposition which includes additional 4, 5 and sometimes even 6 places each way terms promotions across a whole host of live televised action. They are also one of the strongest online bookmakers around for offering full 1/4 odds each way payouts on the place, going against the current market trend where more and more bookmakers only payout 1/5 odds on the place. So it's often a win-win with Coral with additional places in feature races including big-field handicaps, plus full 1/4 odds payouts across many other races.
Another huge advantage with Coral is that at the big racing events such as the Cheltenham Festival, Grand National Meeting and Royal Ascot, they always offer their customers added incentives to bet with them. Take the 2017 Cheltenham Festival where Coral offered Faller Insurance across all races up to a £25 stake. Their Cheltenham Bet & Get Club also offered a £10 free bet each day at the Festival for opted-in customers who placed £25 on any Cheltenham selection of Evens or greater. The £10 free bet was available each day across the day's opener - namely the Supreme, Neptune, JLT and the Triumph.
Coral's additional each-way place promotions blow the online competition like Betfred, Ladbrokes, Totesport and William Hill into the weeds. An additional place across the big races where others baulk at giving their punters the same value promotion. Indeed Coral regularly offer an additional place each way across The Derby, Grand National, Scottish and Welsh Nationals and plenty more feature races throughout the season.
Of the High Street bookmakers who also operate online, Coral are the most generous when it comes to giving their customers better each way place terms across key races. The Grand National, Scottish Grand National and Welsh Grand National all receive the additional each way place treatment as does The Derby.
Below you'll find our Coral additional each-way place tracker covering the big live televised races since the Spring of 2016 where Coral have offered additional each way places:
Coral again were offering lots of additional places across both of May's big flat-racing Festivals, namely the Guineas Festival at Newmarket and the Ebor Festival at York. In-all Coral offered additional each way places - above the regulatory terms - in 8 races in May. 4 places each way at 1/5 odds in the Qatar Racing Stakes on the Sunday at Newmarket - was an offer that only Ladbrokes matched and in-total they offered 8 additional each way places across the live ITV races noted below. To best put this into context, Betfair Sportsbook, BetVictor, Stan James and William Hill gave away no additional each way places across the whole of May.
Coral really stepped up to the mark when it comes to Horse Racing in April 2017. With Aintree and Ayr Festivals, the National Hunt Grand Finale at Sandown, the end of the All-Weather Championships at Lingfield plus the start of the Flat season at Doncaster, April is a great month to be a punter. Coral delivered a range of excellent extended eachway offers including 5 places each way at the Aintree Grand National and the Topham Chase. They also went 6 places each way for the first time ever at the Scottish Grand National, marking a new value-added departure. 10 additional each way places across 9 key races were offered. To put this into context, Betfred, Betfair Sportsbook, Ladbrokes, Stan James, Totesport and William Hill gave away a solitary additional each place in a single race across the whole of April 2017.
In 2017, with the move to ITV Racing, it's also been noticeable that Coral have been offering 4 and even 5 places each way across a number of features races. In all cases they have paid out a 1/5 odds for the place, but naturally they have given punters more of a chance of a return:
