December may be a slow month for some racetracks but the cold weather isn’t slowing down any of the biggest horse racing sites. We’ve got a whole bevy of horse racing promotions to look forward to this month. As they say, there’s always a racetrack open for business somewhere.

Today’s roundup of racing betting promos will draw from the racebooks at BetAmerica, TwinSpires and TVG. These are my three favorite betting sites because they are US-legal and always pay their winners at full track odds. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a safer or more well-rounded site than any of these three.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff.

BetAmerica Promotions

BetAmerica is celebrating 31 days of Christmas with a new promotion every day of the month. They have a list of rotating promos running on a 7-day schedule with something worth looking at each day of the week.

Every Monday for the rest of the year, BetAmerica will give you a free trifecta wager on one race. Make sure you take note of the track and race because it’s not a free trifecta wherever you want; it’s a free trifecta on exactly one race.

Check Twitter on Tuesdays and your e-mail on Wednesdays for a surprise promotion on each of those days. It’s a surprise so nobody knows what the promo will be. Remember, that’s Twitter on Tuesdays and e-mail on Wednesdays.

Every Thursday you’ll get a 10% bonus on all horse and greyhound trifecta payouts. If you win with any Trifecta, BetAmerica will add 10% to the payout. You can get up to $250 in bonuses per day.

Check BetAmerica’s Facebook page on Fridays to submit a prediction on who will win a certain race. Get it right and you’ll be entered to win an extra $3. Save your exotics for Saturdays at BetAmerica and you’ll get up to 10% added to all winning exotics at certain tracks.

And that about does it for BetAmerica this month. It’s nice to know there’s a new promotion literally every single day for the rest of 2014. If you don’t already have an account at BetAmerica, it’s time to sign up now.

TwinSpires is offering double TSC Elite Points for all wagers placed at Churchill Downs, Arlington Park, Calder and the Fair Grounds Race Course. These points come in handy because you can redeem them for cash or to get free handicapping products by Brisnet. The more you wager, the more you earn. Wager at any of the parks mentioned above and you’ll get double points.

From December 10th through the 13th you can win one of five seats to the 2015 Horse Player World Series in Las Vegas. Satellite handicapping tournaments will be held starting on the 10th for as little as $10 and then the $85 final will be held on Saturday, December 13th. If you finish in any of the top 5 positions in the final, TwinSpires will pay for your entry to the World Series and provide you with a four night hotel stay in Vegas.

TwinSpires will also be celebrating the Gulfstream Championship meet all December long with $20,000 worth of prizes. Just play the Rainbow 6 for at least $0.20 on the last six races of the day at Gulfstream Park and if you go six for six, you’ll earn a share of the $20,000 bonus. You can play as many times as you want and win additional shares every time you hit all six.

Do you like TSC Elite Points? If so, you’ll want to consider earning 20x points on Sundays at Fair Grounds. Cash any ticket on any race at Fair Grounds and TwinSpires will give you 20 TSC Elite Points for every dollar wagered. You can also earn 10x points per dollar wagered on exotics at the new-to-TwinSpires Hong Kong racetrack from now through January 31st.

This is just an overview of the many promotions hosted at TwinSpires – there are even more on offer if you head to TwinSpires and check out their latest promos.
