Coral has enjoyed a fruitful journey to being one of the most renowned bookmakers on the highstreets of the UK. This rise to the forefront of the UK betting industry was no end helped by the partnership which saw Ladbrokes and Coral merge in 2016.

\\Most notably for this Coral review, it is worth pointing out their dedication to horse racing with the longstanding Coral Cup Cheltenham sponsorship.

Coral Cheltenham Offers

It is with that level of sponsorship to one of the biggest meets in the global racing market that has seen the Coral horse racing market become one of the go-to for bettors looking to have a bet on Cheltenham.

We are yet to have the 2019 offers for the Cheltenham Festival, however, you will find them here as soon as they’re live, so make sure to bookmark this page. Meanwhile, here is a quick overview of what Betway offered to the punters during the previous-year Festival.

If history is anything to go by, then it will most likely be a Coral betting Cheltenham for you! Last year saw Coral run a plethora of long-running offers, some of which were Coral new customer offers and some of which were available to both new, and, returning bettors.

For instance, they ran enhanced odds on the Gold Cup when you backed Might Bite at their whopping 25/1. As well as this such offer, there were numerous money back offers too. Such as their money back on ALL losers in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, and, a game-changing money back as a free bet if your horse fell during ANY Cheltenham Festival race. Not too bad, right?

Non Runner No Bet

As well as those enhanced odds and money back specials which help separate them from their competitors, it wouldn’t be a Coral Cheltenham without the tried and trusted Non Runner No Bet! This offer is simple, yet, cannot be overlooked, especially as Coral are often one of the first to put this offer across the whole of the four-day event. Coral offers you the chance to get your money on your desired horse in its selected race – and – if it doesn’t run you will get your stake back as a free bet.

It gives you the chance to get on the action relatively early, with the security of knowing you are covered by the Corals betting offer, Non Runner No Bet. We’ve touched on the offers you’ll want to get your hands on, but, first you must register!

How To Bet On Cheltenham Festival 2019 With Coral

To make sure you’re able to be betting with Coral this Cheltenham Festival you’ll have to make sure you’re successfully registered. Plus, you’ll qualify for the Coral sign up offer too, so make sure you utilise it!

  2. After filling this in you’ll be able to enter your payment method and make your first deposit. There a range of methods available to you – so make sure you pick the one that best suits you and your needs, the easiest of methods is, of course, debit/credit card. The main reason for this is that if you don’t use these methods you will not qualify for your Coral welcome offer.

Take Advantage of Coral’s Sign Up Offer

Where Coral differentiate themselves brilliantly for their new customers is that the is no need to have a Coral free bet promo code to hand whilst you’re signing up. Why? Because it’s automatically applied for EVERY new customer who joins.This offer is simple, it’s £20 in free bets when you bet £5.

The terms and conditions are quite simple too, which is refreshing to see.

  • Then place a first bet of £5 at odds, of at least 1.50
  • Then you will receive four separate free bets each to the value of £5, giving you £20 in free bets to wager with.

A Coral Cheltenham free bet is not to be sniffed at!

18+. UK+IRE only. Min first bet £5. Must be placed within 14 days of account reg. £20 credited as 4 x £5 free bets. Not valid with CashOut. Valid for 4 days. Free bet stake not returned.T&Cs Apply.

Get On Track Early With Ante Post betting

Now that you’re registered and able to start betting, the first thing you’ll no doubt want to check out is the Coral ante post market. The ante post market is much like the previously talked about Non Runner No Bet offer. However, what the ante post gives you in regards to bigger odds, its drawback is that if your horse doesn’t run in the selected race – your bet is settled as a losing one and you do not get your stake back.

Each Way Betting

Another way to make sure you’re getting the most from Coral this Cheltenham Festival is to bet each way (EW). With each way betting your stake is doubled, so you are betting on the selection to win, and on the selection to be placed. For example, a £5 each way bet will cost £10 as the bet is made up of £5 on the win and £5 for your selection to place. The place part will be paid out at a fraction of the price, depending on how low Coral are paying out for, this will be clearly advertised within the Cheltenham race markets.

Take Advantage of Coral’s Bet&Get Club

Another great feature of this bookmaker is the Coral Bet and Get Club. It’s a standout example of a bookies rewarding their customers.

Not only does it have a great name, but, when you bet £25 from Monday to Thursday you will be rewarded with a £10 Free Bet on the Friday. What better timing to get a free bet? Right in time to go and have a flutter on the weekend action across desktop and the Coral betting app too.

Build Your Own Bet

If that wasn’t enough for quirky features, then how about the #YourCall one? This feature is available every week on all Premier League, Championship, Champions League, La Liga and Serie A matches – with a new addition of NBA too!

All you need to do is tweet @Coral on Twitter with your desired #YourCall. This can be a culmination of assists, goals, passes, etc across one or several game. You will find your #YourCall – along with others submitted – across the markets under the tab #YourCall. Simple, yet effective!

Watch Cheltenham 2019 Live

Another simple yet effective offering that Coral give their customers is live streaming across both desktop and the Coral bookmakers app. Throughout the whole of Cheltenham you can live stream every race, the same goes with sister company Ladbrokes too.

Pick Up Your Winnings

Collecting your winnings from Coral is a simple task too. Coral withdrawal times vary, but, they are clearly set out on their webpage. Credit/debit cards take on average 2-5 working days, with the minimum withdrawal amount set at £0.01. You can also collect your online winnings in store with Coral connect withdrawals. To do this, you must first sign up for a Coral connect card.

The benefits of the card include; collecting your winnings in store, depositing cash in store, not having to use a bank card, one balance across sports/gaming/lotto and exclusive Coral connect offers.

Coral Android App

But, if you want to be on the go – you’ll want to have a look at the Coral mobile apps.

Beneath each is an icon which leads you to download the app you wish. When you click, you’ll be taken to a new page. Enter your phone number where prompted and you will receive a link to download the Coral app you wished to download.

Coral iOS App

The other Coral mobile app is, of course, the iOS version. Again, it’s quick and easy to download the app you wish for. Simply go to the Apples store and search and download the Coral app you wish to use.

Both the Android and iOS apps are convenient to use, and, designed to have as simple a user journey as possible. The experience between both apps is seamless as both are heightened to perform as good as they can. That, they do, showing other bookmakers how to deliver clean cut simplicity in a betting app.

What’s better is that across both apps you can live stream too while you bet, all the better for during Cheltenham Festival!

Bottom Line

Not just by putting stipulations in for their existing customers and new customers, but, creating a fair better betting environment. With great offers, and, bonuses for connect card holders – Coral could well be the go-to bookies for Cheltenham Festival.
