By signing up to bookmakers during the festival on a deal such as a ‘bet £5 get £20’ deal you are then able to bet on more than one race for just the cost of your initial stake. The way this works is by signing up and placing a bet with a bookmaker you can put £5 (or more) on the first race. No matter if this bet wins or loses you would receive £20 to bet with for the rest of the day. These free bets can be used on any of the other 6 races through the day or saved and used on another sport.
