188BET are an online only bookmaker that do have less markets than some of their main competitors, but they do list a lot of good special promotions on the site. One of the best offers here is the Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK and Irish horse racing, if the bet has been placed after 10am on the day of the race. The reason this offer is so attractive to online bettors is two fold: firstly, it can add a lot of value to your bet and secondly, because it is extremely easy to claim. There is no need to opt-in, once your bet is on within the terms of the offer, you will have qualified.

Best Odds Guaranteed means that if you have taken a fixed price on a horse and the Starting Price (SP) is greater than those odds, 188BET will pay out at the greater odds. If the fixed odds end up being greater than the SP, you will be given the original fixed odds price. Whichever of the two prices is bigger, that’s what you’ll be given. As evidence of how it works, if you were to place a £20 bet on Elnadim Star to win a race at Beverley with odds of 8.50, your returns would be £170 if the horse was to win. However, if the Starting Price had drifted out to 9.00, the returns would instead be £180. An extra £10 in your pocket with no additional steps taken.
There are some terms and conditions you must be aware of for this offer. It only applies to races in the UK and Ireland with bets placed after 10am on the day of the applicable race. Best Odds Guaranteed applies to Single and Multiple/Parlay bets as well as both board prices and early prices. However, it does not apply to ante post, including ‘non runner no bets’ events unless stated on the 188BET website.
Matched betting techniques can be used in order to potentially add to profits. This would be through backing one selection at 188BET and laying against the same selection on a betting exchange such as Betfair. If, for example, we used the £20 free bet from the 188BET welcome offer, we could profit further in the event of a win at the bookmaker. We could place the £20 free bet on Je Suis Charlie to win at Haydock with odds of 5.50 and laid against the same selection at odds of 6.0 at the exchange, your profit would be £14.35. Say the SP odds had drifted to 6.0 though, and your profit suddenly goes up to £24.35. Here, you are adding £10 of profit thanks to Best Odds Guaranteed.
