Bookie Promos

Betting Promotions Review 22 January 2019

Bookie promos save punters' skin

Saturday saw a tricky day for horse racing punters, with plenty of the red hots getting rolled.

Thankfully, the betting promotions dished up by the bookies meant that it wasn't an outright loss, with plenty of losing bets returned as bonus bets. 

While NBA punters probably had the better of it, it was still difficult to make inroads on a difficult weekend of betting. 

Bookie Promos: How punters fared last weekend

Bookie Racing & NBA
Neds Good
Ladbrokes Okay
Pointsbet Good
BetEasy Okay
Sportsbet Okay
TAB Okay


Neds Betting Promotions

It was Neds' secondary racing promo that would've seen punters rake in a healthy profit.

It was a multi special at Eagle Farm, where you were compensated with a bonus bet if one of your four legs let you down.

With eight of the nine winners fancied in the market, many of the punters taking advantage of this offer would have either tasted multi glory, or got their money back.

Neds' other racing special was a bonus bet return for running a place in Sydney or Melbourne, in races 1-4.

Most of the favs could only manage a place so this betting promotion would've come in handy for punters.

These promos are available when you, sign up to Neds here.


Ladbrokes Betting Promotions

While Ladbrokes had the best racing promo in the market, the results just didn't go punters' way.

It was enhanced odds available for every runner in races 1-2 at the five main metropolitan meetings.

While some favourites got the job done, a handful of these races saw shock results that only the bravest of punters would've been behind.

However, this still looks like the racing promo to bet with going forward. Nabbing a winner with enhanced odds makes a world of difference especially when it comes early in the day.

To take advantage of offers like this, create an account with Ladbrokes here.


Pointsbet Betting Promotions

It was Pointsbet's NBA promo that came in handy over the weekend.

This early payout at quarter time if your team was leading by 10+ points meant the difference between winning and losing in select games.

One of these was the battle between Oklahoma City Thunder and the LA Lakers.

OKC led by 12 points at quarter time, before going on to lose the game in overtime.

Punters who bet on the Thunder with Pointsbet would be thanking their lucky stars, as they were credited with the win as soon as the first quarter ended. 

If promotions like this strike your fancy, sign up with Pointsbet here.


BetEasy Betting Promotions

BetEasy's racing promo of a bonus bet return for running 2nd or 3rd in races 1-4 at Flemington and Rosehill proved to be a winner.

Due mainly to the result in race 1 at Flemington and race 2 at Rosehill.

In Melbourne, the $1.70 fav Viking Warrior disappointed punters by running 2nd.

It was a similar story in Sydney, where an even shorter favourite, the $1.65 Ljungberg also came in 2nd.

Punters who threw anything up to a pineapple on these favs would've gratefully seen their bet returned as a bonus bet.  

To enjoy these features with BetEasy, sign up here.


Sportsbet Betting Promotions

Sportsbet went with the same racing promo, where your stake was returned if your fixed odds win bet ran a place.

But it was the NBA where punters could've made inroads, thanks to Sportsbet's early payout special.

Lead by 16+ points at any time, and your account was immediately credited with the win.

This even meant that Sportsbet were forced to payout on both results in the Lakers vs Rockets game on Sunday.

The Lakers led by as many as 21 points in the 2nd quarter, before getting done in overtime.

Therefore, no matter if you backed the Lakers or Rockets, you had a win to your name.


TAB Betting Promotions

The TAB followed suit with their racing promo, offering a $50 bonus bet if your horse ran 2nd or 3rd in races 1-4 in Sydney and Melbourne.

Crucially, this meant that many punters were given a second chance in the form of a bonus bet.

That's because most would have been on Viking Warrior and Ljungberg, the two disappointments of the day.
