The Pools: BIG Racing Offers

Betting fans of a certain age may remember the era when The Pools were one of the biggest and best betting operators in the UK. Times may have changed from the days when “the Pools Man” came knocking at the door, but The Pools are still with us and now operate a thoroughly modern betting site, encompassing the classic football pools betting products and a comprehensive traditional sports betting site.

Sleek and intuitive to use and backed by one of the most well-respected names in the industry, The Pools is well worth a look for sports betting fans. New players will find themselves off to a flying start courtesy of the excellent welcome offer; Simply stake £10 to receive £10 in Free Bets and a bumper 100 Free Spins!

The added value doesn’t end with the sign-up deal, with a host of ongoing promotions helping to ensure that existing players also receive a little extra bang for the betting buck. Racing fans, in particular, are well-catered for, with the site offering Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK and Irish Racing, a steady stream of Extra Place races, and the hugely popular BIG Racing Offers.

How Does "BIG Racing Offers" Work?
