SO the Melbourne Spring Carnival might be over, but that doesn’t mean the racing action is.
And where there is racing, there is a bookie bonus.
Our favourite online bookmakers have a raft of bonuses, insurances and specials on the races over the weekend.
With the Ballarat Cup, Kilmore Cup, Railway Stakes and Western Australia Guineas, as well as a mountain of racing at Rosehill, Eagle Farm and Morphetville, there will be no shortage of events to punt on.
And if you’re not up for the nags, how about their dish licking mates, the greys? Bonuses will be available at Wentworth Park and The Meadows.
If racing is not your thing, but you love your sport, grab a promo on events like the A-League, NBA or English Premier League.
Here’s our list of the best bonuses from across the internet.
Make sure you take advantage of them.
Racing, racing and more racing is on the agenda for CrownBet.com.au punters looking to grab a special on the weekend’s nags and dishlickers.
Multi bonus: Load up with a little insurance on your multis at Ballarat, Rosehill, Eagle Farm, Morphettville and Ascot. Simply place a three or more leg win bet multi on races across those five meetings on Saturday and, if they all get home but one fails, you will get back CrownBet rewards points – matched to your stake up to $50.
Greyhounds: Clean up with CrownBet Rewards points on nominated races at the Meadows and Wentworth Park on Saturday. Place a fixed odds win bet on the bookie’s nominated races and you will get double Crownbet Rewards points on your stake.
Ballarat Cup: The big race down at Ballarat gives you a couple of shots at a bonus bet up to $25. If the horse you back in the big race – race eight – doesn’t finish first past the post, but does finish in the minor places you will have your stake on the horse matched, up to $25, as a bonus bet.
Railway Stakes and Western Australian Guineas: If the horse you back in these races at Ascot on Saturday has a little bad luck on the run home and happens to run second, don’t despair. You won’t get your winnings, but you will get a matched bonus bet – up to $25 – provided your horse finishes second in the race.
Kilmore Cup: Get a bonus bet up to $50 if the horse you back to win doesn’t quite make it. If it manages to finish second, you’ll have your stake back in your account, in the form of a bonus bet to reinvest.
Ballarat and Ascot Races
Get in early on Saturday to take advantage of Sportsbet.com.au’s bonus bet cash backs on races 1-3 at the two big race meets. Back any horse to take the chocolates in any of the first three races at both tracks and, if they can’t quite get there, but still run a minor place, you will get a bonus bet, matching your stake up to $50, sent back into your account.
The Meadows greyhounds
This is a great special on the greys on Saturday. Simply place a bet on the the event at the Meadows and, whenever your first win comes on the races comes, you will get double your winnings – up to $20 – in the form of a matched bonus bet. Slap $20 on a $2 pop and you’ll get a free $20 bet. It’s that easy.
Western Sydney Wanderers vs. Melbourne City: If you are going to have a punt on the Western Sydney Wanders vs. Melbourne City game, you might as well make it a little interesting. The bookie is offering a little insurance on correct score bets. If you place a correct score bet on the game, and your team happens to get up, but not by your correct prediction, you will still be looked after in the form of a bonus bet that matches your stake, up to $50.
Multi bonus: If you would rather spread your interests across multiple matches, there is a great bonus bet special on A-League multis that feature four legs or more. Pick your win draw win selections in four or more of the weekend’s matches and, if you get all of them home, but one fails, you will get your cash back, up to $50, of course, in the form of a bonus bet.
Boosted NBA lines
Forget those $1.90 lines on your favourite NBA games. Make sure you are getting the most out of your handicap betting on your favourite NBA teams with WilliamHill.com.au’s boosted markets on lines.
Slam them into a multi and watch the odds multiply. The $1.95 is great, but a few more legs makes your bet a little riskier, but a lot more lucrative. The bookie says it will offer these lines on every game, each and every day of the NBA season.
