Get your mobile devices charged up to the max in preparation of one of the greatest festivals on turf – The Cheltenham Festival!
The tipsters will be thoroughly checking the stats, the journalists digging for the latest info and bookmakers ready to entice in new customers.
The latter is where our focus has been for the purpose of this blog post. Here you will find all the latest and greatest Cheltenham offers from all of the major UK bookmakers. Don’t be put off if you are a seasoned gambler and already have numerous betting accounts. There are plenty of offers here that are available to existing customers too.
All offers are broken down in simple English, with significant terms from each bookmaker included. This makes each bonus on offer easy to understand to those who do not frequently bet on the horses. We’ll get the ball rolling with two common Cheltenham bonuses to take in to consideration.
No Runner, No Bet (NRNB)
Look out for this offer, which the majority of bookmakers tend to put out for the festival. If your chosen horse does not end up running, the bet is voided and the amount staked is returned back to the customer.
This can considerably reduce your potential losses if you are looking to pick up value in the ante-post markets. (Betting before runners have been confirmed). It also covers for unexpected circumstances on the day of the race, which can sometimes cause a confirmed horse not to run.
Best Odds Guaranteed
An offer that maximises the return on winning bets. If the starting price (odds at the point of the start of the race) is higher than the price the customer took when placing the bet, the higher starting price is paid. This guarantees the customer receives the highest price of the two. If the starting price is lower, the price taken when the bet was placed then pays.
Keep your eyes peeled on the NRNB & BOG info below given for each mentioned bookmaker.

Cheltenham Offers & Bonuses By Bookmaker
New Customer Offer
Boylesports will be offering their standard opening offer of a £25 bet bundle to new customers throughout the Festival. However, there are plenty of hoops to jump through in order to successfully claim the full £25 bonus. The first part of the bonus is easy enough with a £10 initial bet resulting in a £5 free bet being awarded (min odds 1/2). I would forget about the rest of the bonus, in my opinion, and just see it as a £5 bonus. The main reason why you want to get involved with Boylesports is because of their fantastic offer to all registered customers mentioned below.
