What is Countdown to Cheltenham and how does it work?

Introducing Betway's new offer, which can see you win up to £70 in free bets in the build up to the 2023 Cheltenham Festival.

As we build up to the 2023 Cheltenham Festival, Betway are super charging Free Bet Club and giving customers the chance to win up to £70 in free bets in our Countdown to Cheltenham. 

From Saturday 11 February to Friday 10 March, customers who bet £25 each week will earn the usual £10 (2 x£5) in free bets as well as another £5 free bet which will go into a Countdown to Cheltenham pot.

If you place qualifying bets over all four weeks leading up to Cheltenham, you will build up a pot of £20 (4 x £5) in free bets to use during the Festival. Betway will also award an additional £10 in free bets to customers who complete all four weeks of Countdown to Cheltenham.

In addition to the £40 in free bets earned as usual with Free Bet Club over the four weeks, this means there is a total of £70 in free bets available to customers who complete the Countdown to Cheltenham.

Countdown to Cheltenham pots will be credited on the Sunday before Cheltenham (13 March). 

Just like Free Bet Club, qualifying bets must be real money wagers of £25 or more, placed on trebles, accumulators or Bet Builders with three or more selections at minimum overall odds of 2/1. Enhanced price offers and Betway Boosts are not eligible for Countdown to Cheltenham. Esports bets are also excluded. Bets must settle within between Saturday 00:00 GMT and Friday 23:59 GMT each week. 

Customers who wish to take part in Countdown to Cheltenham can opt in via the Free Bet Club tracker. You only have to opt in once.
