Advice for betting on Cup Day

For many Australians, they bet on the horses once a year, usually Melbourne Cup Day. Whilst there aren’t that many promotions on offer on The Cup itself, there are plenty of betting specials and offers available throughout the day, particularly on races 1 - 4. Below is a suggested strategy to maximise the different bookmaker promotions available on Cup Day.

Races 1 and 2

As was the case on Derby Day, several betting agencies are offering bonus bet refunds on the first four races of the meet. Each of the following agencies is offering a refund on these races if your horse fails to win but finishes 2nd or 3rd. Please note, on Cup Day, Sportsbet’s offer is only valid for races 1 and 2, as well as race 7, the Melbourne Cup.

  • Sportsbet
  • Palmerbet

The Melbourne Cup

If you’re looking for a bonus bet deal on the Melbourne Cup itself, look to Unibet’s $25 bonus bet refund for running 2nd or 3rd in the 2018 Melbourne Cup. Sportsbet and BetEasy are both offering the same deal.
