It’s a big week of ITV Racing and you don’t want to miss this Unibet ’15 to Go’ offer! Simply bet on selected ITV races in the 15 minutes before the scheduled start time and if we back the winner, Unibet will match our stake with a free bet, up to £20.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £50.00+ and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Minimum stake of £5.00.
  • Applies to our first qualifying bet placed on selected ITV races in the 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
  • We must click the ’15 to Go’ button that appears on our betslip after entering our stake.
  • Minimum odds of 2.00 (evens) at the time of bet placement.
  • A minimum of 5 horses must run for this promotion to be valid.
  • If our selected horse wins, Unibet will match our stake as a free bet, up to £20.00.

The Unibet ’15 to Go’ promotion is very similar to the Bet365 4/1 offer.

14:55 Epsom

Friday 10th September 2021

It’s entirely up to you which horses you place your qualifying bets on, though we won’t know what odds are available until 15 minutes before the off.

Valentino Dancer is favourite to win the 14:55 Epsom on Thursday at back odds of 3.50 (5/2). I’ll use lay odds of 3.75 to illustrate how this offer works and I’ll update the table at the bottom of the post with some genuine selections at the end of each day.

Option 1:

We know that if our horse wins, we’ll be able to convert our £20.00 free bet into 80% cash. We can therefore add 0.80 to the back odds to get our effective odds…

3.50 + 0.80 = 4.30

Using my Matched Betting Calculator, we simply enter 4.30 as our back odds instead of 3.50 and lay the amount shown. Overlaying like this is fine, but the guaranteed profits are likely to be small.

Option 2:

Our second option is to lay our bets as normal and hope some of our horses win for bigger profits.

We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £18.77…

Place £20.00 on Valentino Dancer @ 3.50 = Potential profit of £50.00

Betfair logo

Lay £18.77 on Valentino Dancer @ 3.75 = Potential liability of £51.61


Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

Outcome Unibet Betfair Free Bet Profit/Loss
Valentino Dancer wins + £50.00 – £51.61 + £16.00 £14.39 profit
Another horse wins – £20.00 + £18.39 £1.61 loss

So, we’ll make a nice profit of £14.39 if Valentino Dancer wins, otherwise we’ll lose £1.61. Risking £1.61 to make a potential profit of £14.39 gives us effective odds of 9.94. So, given that Valentino Dancer is odds of just 3.50 (5/2) to win the race, this is a profitable offer in the long run.

We may not find a suitable selection for every race, nor should we be aiming to bet on every race. It’s best to be selective, but with fifteen races to go at, there’s an overall potential profit of £50.00+ up for grabs on this Unibet ’15 to Go’ offer!

If eligible, free bets will be credited within 2 hours of the weigh-in and will be valid on horse racing for 7 days. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

If you’re unsure how to convert your £20.00 free bets into £16.00 cash (80%), please see my free bets guide for a walkthrough of how it should be done.

I’ll update the following table with some genuine selections at the end of each day…

Race Selection Back Odds Lay Odds Profit/Loss
13:40 Doncaster (Thu)
14:55 Epsom (Thu)
15:45 Doncaster (Thu)
