Getting a free tip on a horse race is one of life’s little pleasures but let’s face it, good ones don’t come along very often. The same is true of a free bet. There are ways, however, to get both. You just have to know where to look.
If you expect to stand on a street corner and have someone hand you some money and then tell you what to bet on, well, you may be standing on that street corner for quite a while. On the other hand, if you’ll take a little advice you can get some very good horse racing information with some action that won’t cost you.
First of all, let’s talk about an angle that a lot of horse players overlook. We hear about our sport declining and the fact that the people who follow horse racing and who bet the races are older folks, not the young crowd that the tracks would like to attract. People in the industry worry that there isn’t a new generation coming along to replace us oldsters when we can no longer make it to the OTB or race track.
Here’s a news flash. A lot of the younger folks don’t go to the races because they’re busy building a life and working, just like we did when we were younger. Unless you’re like me and had family in the business, you probably didn’t spend much time at the races in your early years. On the other hand, when a generation gets older and has discretionary income they can spend and some free time to spend it, they’re a prime candidate for a horse racing venue.
So you, my horse playing friend, are a valuable commodity. If you like to gamble and play the horses, there are people looking for you right now and they want to entice you into their race book, horse track, or OTB parlor or even to their online wagering sites called ADWs (advanced deposit wagering).
Before you deposit at an ADW check out their player’s perks. They all offer points or discounts on bets and that’s just the beginning. They also have referral plans so that if one of your friends sign up, you get a bonus! That’s a lot of free money for betting.
As for the free racing tips, that’s a little more complicated. There are a lot of tipster services out there. The best ones work directly with the suppliers of past performances. They sometimes show their actual hit rate so you can check them out.
Using the free money you get through the ADW you can make bets and use the extra cash to purchase the tips right through the ADW interface using the free money. That’s a win-win for you and anyone you send their way. Use the clout you have as a player and get the perks. It’s like getting a free bet.
