The odds boosts are significant and good incentives to place bets on the 2019 Cheltenham Festival with Black Type.

When a bettor takes an early price or board price and the Starting Price is different the bet will be settled at the best odds. This guarantee will apply during the 2019 Cheltenham Festival. Horses are often backed on the morning of a Cheltenham race which means the SP will be shorter than an earlier price. Customers will receive the best odds regardless of the SP for all 28 races over the four days of the 2019 Cheltenham Festival. This offer applies to win and each way bets.

Free Bet Club

Customers with Black Type can earn up to £50 each week in the form of free bets a members of the Black Type Free Bet Club.
