Bookmakers Gear Up for Melbourne Cup with Great Promos!

November 6th 2017, 1:02am, By: admin

The race that stops a nation is upon us! This Tuesday the 2017 Melbourne Cup will be ran from Flemington and for the betting agencies it marks one of, if not the busiest day on the sport and racing calendar.

All of the major players have some serious promos running for the big race as well of the full day of racing from Flemington and we’ll run you through a few of the better ones here.


It’s a staple at CrownBet, but for a reason. Their moneyback in reward points is a great little promo for when your selection just gets pipped on the line.

Place a Fixed-Odds Win bet on the Melbourne Cup and if your horse finishes 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th, you'll get your stake back in Rewards Points up to $50.

This offer applies to your first Fixed-Odds Win Bet placed on the Melbourne Cup.

Much like that of CrownBet, the folks at Sportsbet are offering the same promo up to $25 but for the Melbourne Cup + both races 1 and 2 at Flemington on Tuesday.

Place a Fixed Odds bet on Race 1, 2 or 7 (Melbourne Cup) at Flemington on Tuesday 7 November 2017 & if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd, get up to $25 back in bonus bets.

This offer applies to your first Cash Fixed Odds bet on the Win or Each Way market.

One of the more fun and interesting promos of the day is TopBetta margin special. If you’re lucky enough to back the winner in the 24 horse field then you could earn some extra cash if it’s a big margin with TopBetta!

Multiply your winnings on the Melbourne Cup! Back the winner of the race that stops the nation and if it wins by two or more lengths, TopBetta will multiply your profit by the official winning margin! Max additional pay out capped at $1000.

Example: $10 at $6 = $50 profit x 3.25 (lengths) = $162.50 extra profit in cash.
