Racebook Reviews and Bonuses
When we review a particular racebook, one of the main things we look at is the bonuses they return. Cash back offers are always important, for example, because that's the one way racebooks essentially provide for better odds than someone could get than if they were simply making a bet through the track.
* REMINDER! - you must be of legal age in your state or province to legally wager on thoroughbred or harness horse racing. Please bet responsibly!
So what makes a good cash back program?
Clearly one of the things to look at when checking out a cash back offer is the amount being offered. Some racebooks are willing to give back 7 or 8 percent of total daily or weekly volume wagered, on all types of bets and at almost all tracks. Others offer different rates for straight wagers (Win, Place or Show) and exotic wagers (exactas, trifectas, daily doubles etc.) so it's important to be aware of which racebooks offer the most cah back for your preferrred betting strategy.
Also, as many racebooks group the tracks together in terms of prominience (such as A, B and C class tracks, with different maximum payouts) look for the racebooks that offer cash back on the greatest number of tracks.
Is the biggest Welcome Bonus always the best?
On the face of it, more money going into your account just for openig an account would seem like a no brainer - the bigger, the better. But here as well not all racebooks are equal and two of the biggest factors are how you're allowed to use the money, and when you can make a withdrawl. To the first point, if you're a horseplayer, you want to make sure the free play money you are getting to sign up can be used in the racebook, and some betting sites only allow you to use the bonus on sportsbook wagering.
In terms of when you can make a withdrawl, that all depends on the rollover, from 5Xs the first deposit and bonus amount, to as much as 15Xs that combined amount. Always make sure to read and understand Terms and Conditions for a bonus when before you open an account.
