Skybet are one of only a few bookmakers to offer a minimum bet guarantee also known as ‘Guaranteed Lay To Lose’ which they introduced in early September 2018.
What is the Skybet Lay To Lose Guarantee?
The Lay To Lose Guarantee allows all punters to place bets on eligible horse races to win up to £500.
For example, a customer may place a £500 bet on a horse to win at evens, a £250 stake on a horse to win at odds of 2/1 or a £100 stake at odds of 5/1 etc, so long as the potential winnings do not exceed £500.
Who can take advantage of the Lay To Lose Guarantee?
All Skybet customers whether stake restricted or not can place bets on eligible races to win up to £500.
Bookmakers tend to restrict customers rather than close their accounts outright as they may be inclined to use other services such as the casino or poker sections. The minimum bet guarantee allows these players to place bets on specific events.
SkyBet Lay To Lose Guarantee Terms
The Lay To Lose Guarantee applies only to UK & Irish horse racing. Specifically, Class 1 and Class 2 races and customers can place bets on these races from 10 am on the morning of the race to qualify. The guarantee applies only to win markets for eligible races and the win part of each way bets. Bet types such as Forecasts/Tricasts, Price Boosts and Derived markets are not eligible.
Although Skybet’s guarantee is not as attractive as others, it’s good to see them getting involved. Other bookmakers such as Betfair Sportsbook and Betvictor offer a similar, but not identical, guarantee with some bookmakers yet to join in and others initially offering it but withdrawing.
