BetMcLean are offering their customers money back on selected horse racing meetings when your selection finishes runner up to the Starting Price (SP) favourite. If the horse you have bet on is the second to the SP favourite, then BetMcLean will refund your losing stake as a free bet, up to £25. The offer applies to win singles and the win part of each way singles only, and it does not apply to singles in multi-bets. Only the first bet per applicable race will be eligible for the offer but you can get a free bet for each race that you qualify.
There are some terms and conditions you must be aware of. There is no need to opt-in to this offer, which saves time. Only the race meetings specifically stated on the BetMcLean website will be eligible for the offer. If the SP favourite is involved in a dead heat, then the offer will apply to the horse that is in the dead heat for first with the favourite. If the race is won by the joint-favourite, then the joint favourite with the lowest race card number will be treated as the favourite for the offer. In order to qualify, your bet must be placed online. For the offer to apply, at least 6 horses must be running in the relevant race. Please note that this applies to Irish and UK customers only.
You will be unable to use a free bet stake in order to qualify for the offer, only real cash bets count towards qualifying. Also, the free bets cannot be used with any other offers or concessions. If you have placed a qualifying bet within the terms of the offer and your horse does indeed finish second to the SP favourite, you will be credited with a free bet up to £25 within 24 hours and it will expire if not used within 7 days. We always advise depositing funds with a debit card, as customers depositing using Neteller or Moneybookers will not be eligible for this offer.
This offer is best to look for short priced favourites, otherwise this offer may only be worth doing with no qualifying loss. Since you are effectively predicting the forecast (1st and 2nd), plying when there’s a short priced or odds-on favourites will give you a better chance of getting a free bet, as they are more likely to come off. When finding close matches between BetMcLean and the exchange, you will be able to play the offer for a low cost or even for free, making it very worthwhile. The maximum £25 free bet can be turned into roughly £20 cash and the offer has an expected value of £3 over repeated play.
