Betting on Royal Ascot 2022
Billed as the seasonal event of the year, Royal Ascot spans five day across June, and attracts fashionistas and millions of pounds of bets. Seasoned horse racing fans, as well as more occasional punters, flock to the high street bookmakers or open new online betting accounts to get involved in Royal Ascot betting. Royal Ascot 2022 will be no different, and there will be numerous Royal Ascot free bets, enhanced odds and betting offers to take make the most of.
Royal Ascot enhanced odds offers
As well as free bets, a lot of bookmakers will also offer enhanced odds on Royal Ascot – meaning if you shop around you may well be able to get 10/1 on a horse that most other firms are offering 7/1 on. These offers are generally available to new and existing customers.
Happy hour promotions
Flash odds and happy hour promotions, from the likes of William Hill and Paddy Power, are where you’ll find enhanced Royal Ascot odds for a limited period in the hours leading up to the biggest races at Royal Ascot. The offers won’t necessarily be on a single horse, but may focus on all grey horses, previous winners, a specific trainer, or other areas that are known to appeal to punters.
Enhanced place terms
Enhanced place terms are other 2022 Royal Ascot offers to look for. With some fields in excess of 20 runners, finding the winner of the race can be hard enough, so a lot of punters opt to place bets each-way. This combines one bet on a horse to win with another bet on the same horse to place (finish in the top few places). The stake is split evenly across the two bets, so a £5 each-way Royal Ascot bet on a horse will cost £10 in total (£5 on the win and £5 on the place).
With the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot being a handicap race with 16 or more runners, the minimum each-way place terms are for the first four places. However, a lot of bookmakers will offer enhanced place terms to encourage you to bet with them. Many will increase the place terms to cover 5 or 6 places, with the odd bookmaker paying out on the top 7 or even 8 places if they’re feeling particularly generous.
