How to get some extra value for the Cup
The Melbourne Cup is without doubt the pinnacle of Australian racing.
Despite the strong international flavour, just about all Aussies will pause at 3pm this arvo to watch the 24 horses complete a lap and a bit of the famous Flemington racecourse.
For punters looking for that extra bit of value, these are the promos being dished up by the bookies for the big race.
With many regarding the Cup as the toughest betting race all year, why wouldn't you take up these offers?
Pointsbet betting promotion
Pointsbet are offering a bonus bet return up to $50 if your fixed odds win bet runs 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th.
This is a top offer, as it allows plenty of room for error, saving you from doing your dough.
However, while this betting promotion is a cracker, punters need to beware that it is not available to NSW, WA or SA customers.

BetEasy betting promotion
