Pokerstars Extra Places
Each Way bets can be a great choice when you’re not fully confident that your selection will win the race but stands a chance and if it doesn’t, it should at least finish in a place position. The number of places offered by bookmakers for which they will pay out on the place part of each way bets for varies depending on the number of runners but some bookmakers offer extra places on specific horse races that can increase your chances of seeing a return from your each way bets.
Pokerstars Sports offers extra places on a minimum of two selected horse races taking place in the UK & Ireland every single day which will appeal to many horse racing punters.
The races which the extra places apply to are announced on the Pokerstars Sports website, usually on the day of the race. You can find the eligible races by heading to the Pokerstars Sports promotions page and clicking on the ‘Extra Places’ promo. Another good way to be notified of extra place races is to follow Pokerstars Sports on Twitter where they announce details for this offer and more.
Pokerstars Sports usually offer 1 additional place on eligible races but occasionally they may offer two or more.
There’s no need to opt-in to the promotion to qualify for the Extra Places. Simply place an each way bet on one of the eligible races for the day and if your horses finishes in either one of the standard places or one of the extra places, the place part of your each way bet will win.
For example, if a bookmaker was paying out on 3 places in a 10 horse race, your bet would win if your horse finishes 1st, 2nd or 3rd. However, if the bookmaker was offering 5 places each way on the race, your bet would also win if your horse finished in either 4th or 5th place!
Over time, Extra Places can greatly boost your overall returns and can increase your chances of winning from your each way bets.
