2015 Spring Racing Promotions

Spring racing, you simply can’t beat it. It’s this time of the year when the sale of stupid hats and extravagant suits within Victoria skyrockets. It’s a time for women to wear ridiculously expensive shoes before discarding them in a drunken stupor thanks to sore ankles and massive blisters as they try finding their way home. It’s also the time when everybody turns in to a horse racing expert with stories of how they picked the winner of last year’s Melbourne Cup after some astute statistical analysis just as betting was closing.

More importantly it’s the time when on line bookies do everything in their power to woo new customers with a multitude of special offers that don’t come around all too often. Fishing through these can often be harder than picking a potential winner so here at betforfree.com.au we have put together a little list of the best promotions currently doing the rounds.


If you are looking to make your very first on line bet then you can’t go far wrong with Luxbet’slatest promotion for newbies. If you sign up today they will match your first deposit giving you double the amount of fire power to throw at the race that stops the nation. I know that most on line bookies are running similar initiatives but most of these will only double your deposit if it’s $100 or less. Luxbet on the other hand will go up as far as $700 making a unique offer that could be too good to resist.

On top of this exciting offer they also have the +30% Derby Day Special. Place a Bookies Best bet on any race at Flemington on Saturday 31st of October and they will guarantee you’ll get 30% more winnings. The people at Luxbet have placed a limit on this particular beauty with the maximum stake set at $50, but if it’s part of your initial sign up freebie then you simply can’t go wrong.


Over at Ladbrokes they are running similar offers. On sign up they will also double your first deposit, but as we said earlier this will get nowhere near the Luxbet equivalent and is capped at $250. They are also running a Derby Day Special offering an amazing 50% top up on your winnings. Have a fixed odds win bet in Races 1 through to 5 this Saturday at Flemington, and if your FIRST BET in any of these races is a winner we’ll give you 50% extra on top.


Now it wouldn’t be a major sporting event without Sportsbet running some kind of money back promotion and they are not going to let us down at Flemington this weekend. Place a Fixed Odds Win or Each Way punt on the Derby at Flemington on Sat 31st October and if your horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th Sportsbet will refund your bet. There is of course a limit on these refunds with the maximum set at $50 per customer. This also excludes phone betting, but it is surely a great way to whet your whistle before the big race hits our screens on Tuesday.
