The Cheltenham Festival is almost upon us!
Hopefully you're feeling prepared, very excited, and maybe even a little nervous for what's to come. There will be so many offers to get through this week.
Here you'll find some great tips to help you build a daily routine for a smooth, enjoyable and profitable Cheltenham.
If you haven’t had much time to prepare, don't panic! You can follow this guide on how to make the most out of Cheltenham if you are new to Matched Betting.
Plan Your Day
Take time the evening before each race day to make a note of the offers you intend to do the next day.
You'll find all the best offers listed with full instructions in our Cheltenham Offers Guide.
As you complete each offer, you can mark it off to help you keep motivated and focused. Otherwise, it can be overwhelming when you are faced with so many offers.
A great tip is to, bookmark the daily Cheltenham reload offer index pages
This can save you so much time!
All you need to do is open each of the pages listed below right now and save them to your bookmark bar on your browser:
Once you've saved them all your bookmarks bar will look something like this:
Each day, you can then directly get to the main list of available offers in seconds.
As each day ends you can also remove them off your bookmark bar.
NOTE: Days 2-4 will not be live until the evening before each day - but you can still bookmark these links ready. More reload offers will continuously be added to these pages as the bookies announce them so keep checking them regularly.
Here are the reload offer pages to bookmakr:
Cheltenham Day 1 Index: An index of offers for Day 1 of the festival (live now)
Cheltenham Day 2 Index: An index of offers for Day 2 of the festival (will go live evening of the 15th March)
Cheltenham Day 3 Index: An index of offers for Day 3 of the festival (will go live evening of the 16th March)
Cheltenham Day 4 Index: An index of offers for Day 4 of the festival (will go live evening of the 17th March)
Free Up Your Cash
To stay focused on completing as many offers as possible, have any admin tasks, such as banking, all sorted before the festival begins.
Ensure you have spare money available each day in your bank, ready to deposit into the bookmakers running the best offers.
Withdraw funds from any bookies you won’t be using during Cheltenham, so you can use the money for other offers.
If you want to be extra organised, you could consider looking at which bookies are running offers the following day, and make some deposits the night before.
Complete The Easy Offers First
In our post about how members can make the most out of Cheltenham around their full-time job, we focused on offers that members can complete the night before or early morning.
It is a good idea to work through these types of offers in the same manner, even if you are available all day.
Any easy Bet & Get offers, risk-free bets (refund if your horse loses) and direct free bets. ALWAYS get these done and dusted first whenever you can. We're recommending this as you don't want to tie up liability doing Potential Profit offers first then realize you don't have enough to do a Guaranteed Profit Offer.
You can then look at any lower value refund offers and advanced offers like Extra Places later if you still have time and bankroll available.
Boost Your Way To Profit
You should make sure you are prepared to smash the Price Boosts that are available at Cheltenham!
You can follow specific forum topics to get alerted every time there is an opportunity to lock in a quick and easy profit.
We recommend watching the following topics:
How do you watch a topic?
By selecting the ‘Not Watching’ button on the topic and switching it to ‘Watching’
You will then get a forum notification every time there is a new post in that topic.
Here’s an example of notifications coming from the Price Boost topic:
Check Your Inbox
Be sure to check your emails and texts regularly throughout the festival - bookies may send offers directly to you.
They can send them any time, so it can be worthwhile checking throughout the day when you have a minute or two spare.
If you receive an email offer and you're not sure if it's worth doing, the best place to ask is in the forum topic: Sports - Is this offer worth doing?.
If you get an email offer and you know it's worth doing and have not already seen it anywhere on Profit Accumulator then let other members know here: Offers posted by members.
Follow The PA Offers Team
Make sure you follow the OffersTeamPA account on the Forum. By doing this, you’ll get a notification every time a new offer is posted.
This is essential for making top profits from reloads and we highly recommend doing it if you're not doing so already.
How do you do this?
Open the forum then go to: ‘OffersTeamPA’
Then click the green plus sign to follow.
You’ll now get a notification on the forum every time a new offer is posted.
