Real Deal Bet are currently offering quite a few special promotions on their website exclusive for online customers. One of these is giving you the chance to earn a refund as a bonus, up to £10, if your selected horse finishes 2nd by a head or less. This offer is relevant for any horse racing event that you have placed a Winner or Each Way bet. The amount you receive back as a bonus will be matched to the amount of your stake, up to the maximum of £10.
In order to receive the offer, you will need to send an email to [email protected] with the subject line ‘HEAD OR LESS MONEY BACK’, making sure to include your bet number in the email. This must be done by no later than 7 calendar days after the relevant race. If your horse loses by a head or less but does not finish 2nd, you will not receive the refund. The official winning distance as published by the Racing Post will be used for this offer. Forecast/Tricast bets shall not be eligible for this offer in any form. You can claim this promotion once every race. If you place more than one bet on the same race, only the first will be considered for the offer.
If there is a dead heat for 2nd, in which both bet selections are beaten by a head or less, both bets will be qualify for the offer. If there is a dead heat for 1st, neither bet will qualify. A void/cancelled, Cashed-Out or draw bet does not count. If you have successfully qualified for this offer and your selection finishes 2nd by a head or less, the bonus will be credited into your account within 24 hours of your email request. Your bonus must then be wagered over five times on any sports bets with minimum odds of 1/2 (1.50). When the wagering is complete, the bonus amount will be transferred from your Sports Bonus Account to your Sports Cash Account, and you will be able to withdraw. The wagering must be complete within 90 days, otherwise it will expire and funds will be lost.
This is a potential profit offer, not a guaranteed offer, and it only has a small chance of occurring. Therefore, it is only worth doing if you can find a close match which makes it risk-free. If you can find a close match on a short priced favourite and thus have kept qualifying losses to a minimum, you will be able to play through the offer a lot at very little risk, giving you more chances of hitting the bonus refund. Considering the wagering terms, the £10 bonus is worth around £7 when matched betting.
