With the Cheltenham Festival heading our way before you know it, horse racing is one of the biggest betting markets for online bookmakers. It is everywhere, every day and most online bookmakers will provide you with the day’s racing from the UK and across the world. If you enjoy having a flutter on the horses, then you can pretty much find a race any time of any day, watch live streams of them, and even if there are no live races running then you can find some virtual racing to keep yourself entertained. The services for horse racing which online bookmakers offer, naturally varies from one provider to another. Finding one to suit you can make the whole experience incredibly enjoyable, and for those of you punters who like your horse racing feature packed, then a trip to 888Sport will certainly satiate all of your needs. What this popular online bookmaker really deliver, is a top flight horse racing portal through their incredibly in depth icard. The 888Sport icard is a separate section of the online bookmaker’s website, and one totally dedicated to bringing the punter the best horse racing action possible.
Call up the 888Sport icard and you will see the immediate impact of doing your horse racing betting there. You will see the day’s race cards coming up in a perfectly organized way, and you can visit any race off any card, or you can go and look at the course information. Click on the picture of a course and you’ll find the address, contact information with phone, email and website, plus the direction of how to get there as well as the admission price. In their cool graphic way, the course is laid out for you, the direction of the track, plus all the locations of the hazards. It is excellently presented, plus you will get a list of results from that course as well, stretching back a few months, which is quite handy if you bet predominantly by course. On the landing page of the 888Sport icard, there is also, in addition to the day’s meetings, a quick predictor, showing the expected winner of the next three races, plus a link to the latest horse racing news. This is a great intro to horse racing betting, and the main tabbed sections allow you to switch between the race cards and results themselves, along with the courses, statistics, news link and more. There is also information based for Travellers (those horses who have travelled the furthest distance) and Steamers (the horses of the day which are being backed the most).
But, getting to the business end of the 888Sport, by clicking on a race, you get to see the power of the 888Sport icard even more. Call up a race card and you again will see the course info, as well as useful information about the draw advantage. What you will be presented with in terms of the race card, is the list of runners (naturally) along with brief form (with a link to get the full form), weight, jockey/trainer and official rating of the horse. This is all presented very clearly, so you are not going to miss anything, all across the 888Sport icard you will find everything very clear, with so many nice little touches. Besides the race card itself, there is further useful information with the previous year’s race result and a brilliant little treasure in the Head to Head. This sits beneath the race card, and it brings up any relevant information about whether any of the runners in the race have come together in previous races. This is a wonderful little feature and is great for quick references.
But here comes one of the best, and perhaps coolest feature of the 888Sport icard. The predictor. This isn’t just a little piece of text giving a tip of who may win, this is a full graphical representation of everything. When you call up a race card, you will get the predictor (unless you turn it off) and basically a horse race will be run for you. Each horse in the race has a little animated graphic of a horse next to it, and the race will be ran based on form. It will show you who is expected to win the race, and by how much of a distance, and it is great, all based on winning form. What really makes this feature stand out, is that you can predict the race from a Place Form, Going or Jockey/Trainer combo perspective. This will show that certain factors may chance the outcome of the race, and distances between first and second may be smaller than first though. This really gives a fantastic visual view of the possible outcome, and it really can help your betting on the horse racing, and it can’t come highly recommended enough.
888Sport’s horse racing icard, really is worth taking some time to look at. When you join up with the online bookmaker, you will get a £20 no risk free bet. This is just a nice welcome offer, and is perfect for getting started with the highly popular bookmaker. What they really do well on top of their icard, is their sports betting promotions, which they constantly roll out. For example, if you place the 888th bet of the day on the 888Sport website, you will receive a free bet on your account, to the value of your stake. So if that bet was a £50, you get a free £50 bet just for your stake being the 888th of the day at the website. This has a limit of £888 (obviously) so if you fall lucky, then you can get yourself a nice reward. Check out their promotions page and see what they offer to enhance your regular sports betting, on top of their extremely competitive prices. There is a good in play betting service to enjoy, but to back up the awesomeness of the 888Sport icard, you can also watch live streams of horse racing with the bookie. All in all it is a great package and really should be considered for your next flutter.
