2. All Races Are Televised
All RaceBets customers are able to watch every German race live, on our website, so long as they have either placed a bet on the race or have placed at least €20 in bets over the past 2 weeks. Simply click on ‘Streams’ at the top of any RaceBets page and select the meeting you want to watch.
3. All Video Coverage Of German Racing Is Archived
Archive videos are available for all RaceBets customers, regardless of how many bets they have placed. This means you can look at the previous performances from all runners and make a properly informed choice when placing your bet.
4. Fixed Odds Betting Is Available
Fixed odds betting is available on all German races. This means that you can take the price that is on offer, rather than just bet on a horse to win and get paid-out at the starting-price (SP). However, if you do not want to bet at fixed-odds, starting price wagering is also on offer. You can also choose to take the German TOTE price as well.
5. Try Head-2-Head Betting, For Even More Excitement
One of the great features of RaceBets is that we offer head-2-head markets. We select 2 horses in a race, that we feel are well-matched in terms of ability and create fixed-odds betting markets on both runners. You will be simply be betting on which horse is going to finish ahead of the other one. It does not matter if the horses come last and 2nd-to-last, as the only thing that matters is their finishing positions in relation to one another. Head-2-head betting is popular with customers, from all over the world.
6. Trot/Harness Racing Markets Are Also On Offer
Trot racing (also known as harness racing) is a huge part of the German racing industry. In these events, the jockey (referred to as the driver) is pulled along in a sulky (2-wheeled carriage) and the horse is not allowed to break into a canter or gallop. This does not stop them from reaching impressive speeds and the racing remains exciting with tactics playing a major role. The races can also be watched on our live streams or from our comprehensive archives
7. Huge Range Of Bet Types
Many customers just like backing a horse to win in one single race but, for the more adventurous, there are many other options available. Place betting and each-way betting are both popular. You can also make Forecast bets (where you pick the horses to come 1st and 2nd) and Tricast bets (with Tricasts, you must correctly select the horses that will finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd). Customers can also make accumulator bets, where they must select the horses they think will win in 2 or more races.
Hints & Tips
Watch our for UK/Irish-based jockeys and horses featuring in German races, as they have an excellent strike-rate when making a raid. They are far more likely to make the trip over to Germany when a big graded race is taking place. It’s also worth keeping an eye out for German horses that are running in the UK or Ireland, particularly those that are stepping-up in trip. German horses are bred to handle heavy-going, so they rarely have issues with stamina.
