How To Play Betway’s Free £25k Challenge During Cheltenham Festival

    1. Visit the Betway website
    2. Register for a new account.
    3. Once registered, go to the competition page and select a winner for the pre-determined races, plus, add how many combined lengths you think your winners will win by.
    4. If you are the only player to predict all the winners, you will scoop the entire prize pool.
    5. If there are multiple winners, the winner will be decided based on the tie-breaker combined winning lengths.

Offer Terms

  1. A valid Betway account is required to participate in the promotion.
  2. The competition is limited to one entry per registered account holder at Betway, per day. If multiple accounts have been opened by the same person, all entries by this player and/or accounts will be discounted.
  3. The total prize pot each day is £/€1,000 with an increased jackpot on ITV meetings.
  4. Customers’ selections must be confirmed and submitted before the start of the first eligible race of the day.
  5. The eligible races can be found here.
  6. Once an entry is submitted a customer cannot amend or cancel their prediction.
  7. If a customer selects a non-runner, then unfortunately this selection will not count and be deemed a loser.
  8. If there is a dead-heat for 1st place, both horses will be deemed as winners.
  9. If no customers get four winners, then the prize will not be won.
  10. In the event of a tie, the winner will be settled using our tiebreak question. The tiebreak question will be to calculate the combined winning distance of all four races. “Nk” (Neck), “nse” (nose), “hd” (head) and “shd” (short head) will count as 0 to the total winning distances. In the event of more than one customer answering the tiebreak question correctly, the prize will then be split amongst those customers. The table below shows examples of the combined winning distances:
    Examples Race 1 Race 2 Race 3 Race 4 Total Distance Taken for Competition
    Example 1 1.25 3 1 2 7.25 7 lengths (rounded down)
    Example 2 2 2.25 1 0.25 5.5 6 lengths (rounded up)
    Example 3 4 2.25 1.5 2 9.75 10 lengths (rounded up)
  11. The combined winning distance will be based upon the Racing Post results page.
  12. If the tiebreak information is not available then the prize will be split amongst anyone with four winners.
  13. If a 4 To Win race is postponed, abandoned or not completed, the Round will be altered to below:
    • One Void Race, then the prize will be 75% of the Jackpot (Example: £/€1,000 Round will be £/€750).
    • Two Void Races then the prize will be 50% of the Jackpot (Example: £/€1,000 Round will be £/€500).
    • Three Void Races then the Competition will be deemed cancelled and no Jackpot prize shall be awarded.
  14. In order to withdraw the winnings, the customer needs to have passed KYC and have a valid payment method registered to their account.
