It may seem like a little bit of a way off but if you get your planning right and build your betting strategy now, by the time the big races come around you could be celebrating a whole host of winners! So, take a bit of time out to read all about the races, the hospitality and even the dress code required for those lucky enough to attend the meeting. But most of all, get an inside track on where to find the most insightful Royal Ascot betting tips 2018.
Just in case you don’t know, before you can get down to the serious business of using your Royal Ascot tips 2018 you need to set yourself up with an online sports betting account. Now there is plenty of choice out there and all of them will tell you that they have the best odds, betting markets and free gifts but there are a few that really stand out.
betfair is consistently considered to be one of the best betting sites around and a big reason for that is their welcome offer. You can sign up for a betfair account by clicking on the buttons on this page that reveal the bonus code – giving you access to their very impressive welcome offer promotion.
At betfair you can build a healthy funds pot in readiness for using your Royal Ascot tips 2018 by signing up using the bonus code and making your initial deposit and bet. betfair will get you up to £100 in Free Bets. All you have to do is make sure you deposit at least £10.
There are a few industry standard terms and conditions that go along with the offer but that is essentially all you need to do.
Coral’s welcome promotion is set up in a slightly different way but still gets you a good return. When you register for a new account using the bonus code you can then make your first bet of £/€5. It doesn’t matter if the bet is to win or each way, you will automatically get four more £/€5 bets absolutely free. You can use your risk free £/€20’s worth of bets anywhere in the sports betting section.
The betfair welcome offer is obviously the more attractive promotion of the two but if you have already signed up for an account with them you will be ineligible – and the Coral offer is a really good way to bet without having to dip into your account funds. You could use them to great effect before settling down to find some really good Royal Ascot betting tips 2018.
Those welcome offers are not the end of the free gifts and bonuses though. Once you have signed up for your new accounts at either of those two bookies you can really start taking advantage of all the ways that they try to retain you as a customer. They know that there is a lot of competition for your business and that can only be good news for you!
Let’s take a look at the Coral promotions first. Obviously some of these may change as some of their offers will be event specific, but what they have on offer now can be taken as a good indication of what you can expect as a customer account holder.
At the time of writing Coral have a number of promotions for existing customers including:
There are a variety of other promotions as well as these, relating to casino and live casino sections so you can see it is well worth checking out Coral’s promotions on a regular basis to make the most of your account. You can find out what is available by clicking on ‘Offers’ on the main menu bar on the home page.
betfair also have a load more promotions available for existing account holders. You can see what is on offer by clicking on ‘Services’ on the main menu bar and choosing ‘Promotions’ from the drop down. They set their offers out slightly differently and you can view horse racing specific promotions if that is all you are interested in.
At the time of writing you can choose from best odds guaranteed or a variety of promotions relating to live races on Channel 4. Take a look at the promotions page for what is available after you’ve signed up. And keep checking back as there will probably be special Ascot promotions by the time the event comes round so you can use your Royal Ascot tips 2018 to even greater effect.
The Royal Ascot meeting takes place in June each year and it is never too early to find out all you need to know about this prestigious event. Whether you want to know about Ladies Day, tickets for the meeting itself or even the hospitality on offer you can do your homework early to give you more time to find those all-important Royal Ascot tips 2018.
The meeting itself has six world class races among the race card and boasts a regal opening each day as the Queen and other members of the royal family arrive in the horse drawn carriage. Although you can’t bet on that, there is plenty of race action you can prepare yourself for!
You can buy tickets from a number of official agencies where you can also choose which enclosure you might like to get into. There are two public enclosures – the Queen Anne and the Windsor – where the socialising is nearly as important as the racing!
Some of the biggest races include the Diamond Stakes and the Queen Anne Stakes and you will want to have your Royal Ascot betting tips 2018 handy for both of them as well as for the Gold Cup which falls on the same day as Ladies Day.
Royal Ascot is as much as social spectacle as it is a race meeting and even if you are not able to attend it is always a very grand occasion to watch on television.
Although football is actually the most popular sport for punters to bet on these days, the big horse racing meetings always attract much more than racing fans as these are sporting events that have entered the national consciousness. Ascot is possibly only behind the Grand National in this regard and many customer account holders will only bet on horses at these times of the year. But both betfair and Coral have a lot more horse racing markets available and if you are signing up it is well worth taking a look what is on offer.
betfair have a really well laid out horse racing section highlighting the next three races at the top so you won’t ever miss out on a race while you are trying to find who the runners and riders are! Underneath that they have all the races of that day and you can customize your own race card by selecting individual races from any of the meetings so you have all your bets in one place.
As well as a very comprehensive international selection of race markets, betfair also feature their virtual racing section prominently here as well. These are randomly generated computer simulated races that you can bet on in exactly the same way as you would their real life counterparts. There are more than enough actual races to choose from but if you do fancy something different you could give this a go!
Coral have a very information heavy horse racing section but you can find out a lot about the upcoming races here so it could be a good site to look for those Royal Ascot betting tips 2018. They set out the next races – real life and virtual – at the top of their page and also give you the chance to build your own race card from all the races across the world.
But it is the rest of the main horse racing page that is really impressive. Underneath the immediate race market information sections, Coral have a ‘Betting Highlights’ feature with in depth analysis and previews of the upcoming races as well as links to insights from some of the most respected pundits in the horse racing world. There is also a good latest news section here so you can really get all the information you need in time to make your selections. This could be invaluable when it comes to discovering your Royal Ascot tips 2018.
Once you have got your Royal Ascot betting tips 2018 you will want to be able to watch your races and hopefully cheer your horses home! Obviously Royal Ascot has a lot of its races on television but some of the less high profile races may not be as easy to watch – or you might not be in the position to watch television when the race is on. Either way you will still be able to watch your race through your online betting account.
Both betfair and Coral have excellent live streaming services where you can watch a lot of the races in the build up to Royal Ascot as well as the event itself. To be able to watch a race you will need to have placed a bet. With betfair your stake need only be a £0.50 win or a £0.25 each way bet, whereas with Coral your stake needs to be at least £1.
Of course, not all races are available to stream but you can check the schedule well ahead of time to make sure that your one is. There is usually some kind of live streaming icon next to the race as well so you should easily be able to find out whether it is possible or not.
Live streaming with betfair or Coral is available on your home computers as well as smartphones or tablet devices so as long the race is being shown you should have no problem finding a way to watch it.
Online betting sites understand that today’s punters are very busy and spend a lot of their lives on their phones or tablet devices. The ability to make selections, place bets and even watch live sports on your phone has been revolutionary for the betting industry and a large proportion of all bets are now made ‘on the go’.
Both betfair and Coral have their own downloadable mobile apps that are free to use and give you even more freedom in your betting. You can download the apps from the Apple app store or by requesting a link to get it for an Android device. You can, of course, just use your smartphone’s browser to find the bet36 or Coral’s website online but you will probably find that the app has been specifically designed to be used on a phone or tablet and is therefore a more enjoyable experience.
Coral actually have a choice of apps depending on what suits you best. You can choose from the general app that covers all sports and games and will be a great place to use your Royal Ascot tips 2018. Or you could go for the special Live Casino app if you are in the mood for a little bit of glamour with your betting! Coral even have a specially designed iPad version that works better on a slightly larger screen.
The Coral iPad app is great for following the horse racing as it has an overview of all the race courses in action as well providing the latest weather forecasts for each race card so you know ahead of time if the going will change.
The betfair mobile app is just as technically capable and is a great way to keep up with your bets when you are away from your home computer. As well as being able to make your selections and place your bets you can also set up push notifications which will keep you right up to date with all the latest offers and promotions – as well as all the sports action. This could be invaluable when the big event comes round and you want to put your Royal Ascot betting tips 2018 to good use.
As well as knowing that you are getting a great welcome gift and that you are in the right place for all those Royal Ascot betting tips 2018, potential new customers will want to know how to move their money in and out of their accounts in the easiest way possible.
As with most online betting sites, Coral and betfair have a variety of different ways you can deposit and withdraw your money and it is probably good to know about any of the limits, restrictions and time frames you can expect before you need to use the facility.
With betfair you can use the following payment methods when depositing and withdrawing money:
It should be noted that a few of these payment methods are not set up for withdrawals.
As far as depositing money into your betfair customer account, all these methods are free to use and with the majority of them the money will be in your account instantly. The only methods where you will need to wait are the Fast Bank Transfer that takes 1-3 days, Bank Wire which takes 2-10 days and depositing money by cheque which can take up to 28 days.
Withdrawing your money is slightly different as you have to deal with security and standard banking regulations. Again they are all free (except a bank transfer where you need to check with your bank). The e-wallet and prepaid card methods will all show the money with 24 hours, with Neteller able to get you your money in just 1-4 hours. Debit and credit cards will take around 1-3 days and bank transfers and cheques will take quite a bit longer.
A thing to note with all these time frames is that the ‘days’ are actually banking days so if a weekend or a bank holiday falls within your length of time you will need to take that into consideration also.
Depositing and withdrawing money is very similar among all online betting sites so the Coral details will be largely the same. One more thing you should check on the relevant website is the minimum and maximum limits you can move around. You shouldn’t have too much problem here but it is always good to know the facts before you need it.
If you can’t make it to Royal Ascot in person for this very prestigious event then signing up for one of these customer accounts and making your own selections could be just as good. You might not get to mingle with the stars – and royalty! – but you could win big if you get the right Royal Ascot tips 2018.
Using the bonus codes to sign up for betfair or Coral is the best way to go if you are registering for an account for the first time. The amount of free bets or free funds you receive from these bookies makes it a great way to start off your relationship with them. And if you can get a few winners along the way it will be even better for you!
