The Cheltenham Festival 2017 is nearly upon us.
The most exciting race festival of the year, and a time of enhanced bonuses, sign up offers and reloads.
Whether you're new to matched betting, or a seasoned pro, Cheltenham is simply the best time of year, which is why it gets called Cheltmas.
With four days of class 1 racing, it's like a week of Channel 4 racing, with all the associated bonuses, which means it can get a bit overwhelming.
1. Firstly you need to know where the bonuses are, so head over to Profit Accumulator and sign up, it's worth the membership fee to get the offers and know where the value is.
2. A betting exchange account. Betfair have the best sign up offer, and as an exchange let you lay your bets and lock in profit from market changes, or work the if bets.
3. Betfair may have the best sign up bonus, but Smarkets has the lowest commission, so you should be doing most of your laying there.
4. With so many offers and bonuses everyone's float gets a little stretched at this time of year. To help you move money between accounts you'll need a digital wallet like Skrill. You'll be able to move your money near instantly between bookmakers and take advantage of more offers.
5. A TV to watch it all on. Above even the money making opportunities, the Cheltenham Festival is simply one of the most exciting racing meets, so it's it'd be a shame to spend all your time just watching the markets rather than the races themselves. You can stream live on Channel 4 if you haven't taken the week off!
