Win Your Way To Cheltenham

by Christine in News, Promotions category

It is the final day of 2018. A day of quiet reflection or else a day of all out partying, depending on your preference. And if you’ve caught any of the dozens of bugs that seem to be floating around our friend and family circle this Christmas…

Because it’s New Year’s Eve, we were considering doing a listicle-type article where we go through all our favourite things of 2018. Our favourite casinos, our favourite games, our favourite promotions. The things we’ve learned.

But then we realised we haven’t told you about this amazing promotion at Unibet yet. And said, “Screw it.”. Listicles are great and all, but we couldn’t leave you hanging without knowing what Unibet have planned…

Join the #RoadToCheltenham at Unibet

Unibet are celebrating their upcoming sponsorship of a race series at Cheltenham Festival in March. And here’s what they’re giving away to celebrate:

  • Four VIP packages for Cheltenham Festival
  • €25,000 in cash to be shared among 500 players
  • Double points on winning bets on Unibet’s sponsored races

How do I get double leaderboard points?

This promotion has been running since November, but there’s still one sponsored race left for you to get double points on for the #RoadToCheltenham leaderboard.

It’s kicking off on Saturday, 20 January and it’s the Unibet Champion Hurdle at Haydock. But you’ve got to place your bets by Monday, 7 January. So you’ve got plenty of time to get your bets in and cross your fingers you get a winner so you can take advantage of those double points.

What do I need to do to be in with a shot winning a VIP package or cash?

So in order to do this you have to…

  • Opt in on the promotional page at Unibet’s website
  • Wager on UK and Ireland racing that can be settled between now and 23:59 CEST on Monday, 7 January, with single bets with minimum odds of 2/5
  • Then all your win or E/W winning bets count towards your place on the leaderboard…

Then if you finish in the first 500 places, you win either cash or a Cheltenham Festival VIP Package.

How are the prizes distributed?

Here are how the prizes are given out to the top 500 players in the leaderboard:

  • 1-4 place players get 2 VIP Packages and €2,500 in cash each
  • 5-10 place players get €500 each
  • 11-25 place players get €250 each
  • 26-50 place players get €100 each
  • 51-75 place players get €50 each
  • 76-100 place players get €25 each
  • 101-500 place players get €10 each

Tell me more about the VIP package to Cheltenham

If you finish in the top four positions in the leaderboard, you’ll be whisked away to Cheltenham Festival on 13 March. Your prize includes:

  • Admission to the festival
  • Champagne reception
  • Four course buffet
  • Complimentary bar
  • A table for the day
  • TV racing coverage
  • Tote betting service
  • Unbelievable views of the course from your spot
  • Official race card

If you do win, you’ll be contacted within 48 hours of the promotion coming to an end.

How are my leaderboard points calculated?

There’s a formula for this:

Amount staked X Number of events in the bet slip X Total odds of the bet slip

That looks complicated, but it’s pretty easy really. For example, say you bet €20 on a horse at odds of 14.00 and you win. Then your leaderboard points will be 280 points (the formula used will look like: 20×14).
Just remember that only bets made after you opt in are eligible to earn you leaderboard points.

If there are two players tied at the end, the player with the highest number of winning bets will win.

What if I’m not a Unibet player yet?

Don’t fret, poor reader. You can simply sign up now in order to take part in this promotion. And we’ll make it worth your while if you sign up using this exclusive bonus code because you’ll get an amazing welcome offer too…
