Royal Ascot: A Football Punters Guide to the Festival

The 2022 Royal Ascot is here and bettors globally will be prepping their bets for some of the biggest five days on the horse racing calendar. The Royal Ascot is the most one of the most prestigious events for horse racing fans when it comes to betting, as there are so many races to bet on so frequently over the course of the four days.

We understand, as football fans, that not everybody is entirely clued up on horse racing but would like to get involved in the action, even if it's just a couple of low wager bets each day. During Royal Ascot, bookmakers are offering fantastic prices and offers each day, so be sure to stick around our 'Free Bets' page to see what bookmakers are offering throughout the event.

There will be seven races on the opening day of Royal Ascot, with six on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, meaning that there will be a total of 31. The first race of each day varies in terms of start times, with the first one being at 2:30 pm on Tuesday - The Queen Anne Stakes, whilst Saturday’s first race is expected to start as early as 1:20 pm.

To find out what times the races are held on each day, we have provided a link to Royal Ascot’s official website:

Here, at Footy Accumulators, we have put together a beginners betting guide to Cheltenham Festival, detailing how best to bet your money, whilst delving into the exclusive offers and Cheltenham Festival tips from our team.

Use Bookmakers Offers Wisely

The Royal Ascot kickstarts what is one of the biggest betting weeks of the year and that means a variety of bookmakers are offering attractive offers for new and existing customers. As mentioned, stick around our 'Free Bets' page to keep on top of all the best offers and use them wisely.

Sky Bet often has fantastic offers each day of the event. One of their most popular in previous years is that they offer new customers £30 worth of free bets if they place a £5 stake. There will also be offers for existing customers throughout the week from various bookmakers.

So, make sure you head over to our Free Bets section of Footy Accumulators, where we detail the best offers for this throughout the week. These often change so it's worth checking back each day before the first race takes place.

Profitable Royal Ascot Bets

Many will be looking at the races and placing single bets across the week, however, multiples can be profitable. There are many different multiple bets available for punters and they can increase winnings if used properly.

Some of the most popular are multiple bets - backing doubles and trebles, which in turn is when you select two or three horses and put them into one bet. When doing this you can back outright race winners or select each-way bets which usually allow your selected horse to finish as low down as fourth depending on how many horses there are in the race.

One of the most popular multiples bets for horse racing is the Lucky 15, these are somewhat difficult to land but can be very profitable if won.

The Lucky 15 bet consists of choosing four horses and combining them to create a bet that contains 15 separate bets - singles, doubles, trebles and the four-fold. You only need one of the horses to win or place to get some of your money back. We'll be looking to share a lucky 15 bet throughout the four days of the festival so look out for that shared on our social channels every morning before the racing starts!
