Coral Review

When it comes to betting promotions, bookies don’t necessarily always need to reinvent the wheel. The ‘classics’ only became classics in the first place because they worked. Either they proved irresistible to new customers, or solved a major problem for existing ones.

The ‘extra places’ offer type is the definition of a classic offer in the latter category. It removes one of the biggest frustrations in horse racing betting – your horse finishing one spot outside the places on an each way – and boosts your chances of success (and profit) in the process.

Coral have a truly excellent edition of the Extra Places offer. Read on to discover what makes it so great, the relevant T’s & C’s, and how you can use the promotion yourself.

Coral Extra Places Offer

For the uninitiated, each way bets on horse racing have two parts – ‘win’ and ‘place’. If your horse actually wins the race, you hit on the ‘win’ at the original winner odds. If it finishes within a certain range – usually the top two or three, depending on the number of runners – you hit on the ‘place’, and still get a return (usually 1/4 or 1/5).

Regular horse racing bettors will tell you there’s nothing more frustrating than your pick finishing one spot outside the places, particularly in a close race. The Coral Extra Places offer significantly reduces the risk of this happening to you. That’s because, as the name suggests, it increases the number of ‘places’.

A race with 11 runners might normally require your pick to finish in the top three, for example. With Coral’s Extra Places, your horse might only need to finish in the top four instead, which is a sizable boost on your chances of a return. Even better, Coral’s version is available on an extremely wide range of events every single day.

18+, UK+IRE only. Applies to bets placed on selected races from 6 p.m. the day before the race. Minimum runner stipulations apply. T&Cs apply.

Coral Extra Places Offer Example

Like many of Coral’s offers, this one largely does all the hard work for you. You simply need to place an each way bet on your horse of choice, and you’ll automatically get the benefits of the promotion.

Here’s an example of how you might do exactly that:

Cheltenham, 14 Runners Example

  • You’ve done your research, and have a good feeling about the 5:25 Cheltenham race on Saturday, with 14 runners
  • Visit the Extra Places Races page, and see ‘5:25 Cheltenham’ listed
  • The race normally pays out three places. Because of the Extra Places offer, it’s paying out four (the place odds are 1/5)
  • Click through, and find your horse of choice – Doogan’s Warren – at 8/1
  • Add it to your betslip, set a £1 stake, make it an each way for a £2 total stake, and place the bet
  • Doogan’s Warren finishes fourth
  • Normally this would be a loss. But because of the Extra Places offer, you still hit on the place
  • You return £2.60, good for a £0.60 profit

18+, UK+IRE only. Applies to bets placed on selected races from 6 p.m. the day before the race. Minimum runner stipulations apply. T&Cs apply.
