Horseracing is a favorite of millions of people all around the world. There are several ways of participating in or enjoying this game. If you are not a trainer, jockey or owner, you can still derive pleasure from spectating. To spice things up a little, you may consider placing bets on those horses you feel have a higher chance of winning. In addition to being a source of money, wagering will keep you on your toes and you will find yourself following the events with seemingly very little effort. For those who cannot identify any of the above as a way to enjoy horse racing or those that still feel the above-mentioned channels of participation are not enough, video games got you covered. If you have a PS4 or an Xbox, nobody can deny you the opportunity to be a determinant of the outcome of horse races as opposed to the real events where you do not wield any power to influence the results.
There are several horse racing games you can consider if you have a PS4. To begin with, Horse Racing is an entertaining game that does not leave any room for disappointments. There is also Winning Post World 8 2017 whose developer is none other than Tecmo Koei. The dominant mode for this game is the career mode but there is also an option to take part in online competitions although it is not that developed. As for Xbox, one of the most common games is Horse Racing 2016. If you are not careful, this is a game that may get you hooked for hours denying you time to indulge in other things. One is given 6 options for both the horses and the jockeys and each has exclusive attributes that will help you in the ten seasons of the game if utilized well.
We can hardly discuss horseracing without mentioning the Cheltenham Festival 2019, which is about one month away. This event rose to take the number one spot in the national hunt season and with it came a lot of wagering. Horse racing itself is a profitable venture for gambling sites as we have even witnessed bookmakers cut out a niche for them in the market for just taking horseracing competitions seriously. A good example is Unibet, which has some of the best cheltenham betting offers. The Cheltenham Gold Cup is usually a favorite for the punters. This year, Presenting Percy is leading the markets with an odd of 3. Native River is also among the top with an odd of 11/2. Other promising bets at the Gold Cup include Clan Des Obeaux at an odd of 10, Kemboy at 10 and Bellshill at 14 across many betting sites. These odds are available at Bet365, Ladbrokes, SportPesa, Black Type, Betway and Totesport among others. So many punters have made good fortunes and a good example is Golfer Lee Westwood who managed to win around £22,000 in last year’s competition. This year’s competition is even more promising if the bet offers and the number of gambling sites are anything to go by.
As we approach the 12th March, the onset of the Cheltenham 2019 festivals, almost all bookmakers are now offering sign up offers. Although the amounts of the offer vary, some of the sites with the best include Betfair, Unibet, Totesport, Skybet, William Hill, Betway and Betfred. Again, every punter who has spent some time in the game knows the importance of the “No-Runner No Bet” option where one receives a refund of their stake if their horse does not get to participate in the race due to one reason or another. Some of the bookmakers with this option include Bet365, Betway, Coral, Paddy Power, Sky Bet, and Ladbrokes. The festival will have many races and to ensure your spirits remain high throughout the four days, it is important that you be careful on your first bets. The first race will be the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and some of the best horses for this include; Mister Fisher having an odd of 15 at Betfair, Aramon with an odd of 13 at Unibet and Annamix having an odd of 21 at Betway. These are some of the good bets with which you can begin the Cheltenham festival.
