Bruce Betting are currently offering customers the chance to earn a free bet refund, up to £25, if their selected horse is beaten into 2nd by a head or less in any race at selected Bruce Betting meetings. These selected meetings will be listed in the promotions section of the Bruce Betting website. To qualify for the offer, your online bet must be placed on the day of the relevant race. Please note that this offer applies to win singles and the win part of each way singles only.
For clarification, a head or less includes the margins of; a head (0.20 Lengths), a short head (0.10 Lengths) and a nose (0.05 Lengths) only. In the event that your horse finishes in a dead heat for first place, this special promotion will not apply. When using this offer, no other promotion can be triggered as a result, and any qualifying bets or free bets used will not count towards any other promotion. If you have placed multiple bets on the same race, only your first bet on that race will count towards qualifying. If there are fewer than 5 runners taking part in a race, that race will then become ineligible for the Cash Back If Beaten By A Head offer. You must always make sure that any qualifying bets are placed with a real money stake, as using free bet stakes will not count towards qualifying. Also, if you have cashed out your qualifying bet, it will not count either. The offer is only available once per person, household address, email address, debit/credit card number, and IP address.
If you have adhered to these terms and your horse does then finish 2nd by a head or less, your free bet of up to £25 will be credited to your account by 12:00pm on the day after the race. As is the case with most free bets, the stake will not be returned in any potential winnings. Once you have received the free bet, it must be used before 7 days have passed, otherwise it will expire and you will miss out on the chance to use it.
When matched betting, as this offer has a low expected value, I would advise to only take a close match which makes it risk-free. Playing the offer when there’s a short priced or odds-on favourite will give you a greater chance of earning the free bet refund, as the scenario needed to trigger the free bet is more likely to happen. Then, when you do hit the refund, the maximum £25 free bet is worth around £20 in cash to a matched bettor. If you have been able to keep qualifying losses very minimal, this concession can be very valuable.
The Bruce Betting Cash Back If Beaten By A Head offer is one of many promotions listed on MatchedBets.com. MB members can guarantee themselves profit from a number of sign up, reload and accumulator offers.
