BoyleSports Extra Places offer: what it is and how to use it

23 September 2022

BoyleSports will pay out more horses to win or place than almost any other bookmaker, which can increase your profits by up to 30%

What are extra places?

Bookmakers will pay an extra place outside of the top 3, so you can back a horse to win as well as finish 4th or 5th in an extra place race. The winnings will be paid as cash - not free bets - which is brillint.

BoyleSports offers up to 3 extra places per race, which increases your chance of winning by betting each way on a range of horse racing, greyhounds, tennis and golf events.

😲How can I claim this wondrous offer?

Good to Know

Extra place races are available daily across a range of bookmakers, so it is a good idea to check the whole day's calendar before placing a bet.

Which bookie offers the most extra places?

I looked at the range of available Extra Place races over a typical week of racing (no major events) and across a selection of bookmakers, and this is what I found:

Betfred and bet365 offered extra places most frequently (at least 5 races per day every day)

BoyleSports offered the most extra places per suitable race (4 or more places).

BoyleSports Extra Places info
  • 1.20 are the standard odds, although this can change.
  • Generally speaking, the rule for horses is that all 7 horses must run for 3 places to be offered, 12+ horses must run for 4 places, 16+ horses must run for 5 places, 20+ must run for 6 and 22+ horses must run for 7 places to be offered in the race. Rule 4 applies when one or more horses drop out of the race. And what is Rule 4? I hear you cry....

RULE 4 is a deduction applied to all bets before withdrawal if one or more horses drops out of a race or is unable to run

The size of the deduction is dependent on the odds of the withdrawn participant(s) at its time of withdrawal, the shorter the odds the larger the Rule 4 deduction (and vice versa).
