Winx bids punters farewell
The greatest racehorse Aussie punters will ever see bid farewell to her racing career on Saturday.
And those wise enough to bet on her with a certain bookie will have found the victory extra sweet.
Find out which betting promotion that was, as well as an assessment of the other racing and sports offers over the weekend below.
Bookie Promos: How punters fared last weekend
||Racing & Footy
Neds Betting Promotions
It was Neds who really put a smile on punters' faces with their Winx betting promotion.
They were offering up triple winnings for Winx, who as usual, made light work of a Group One quality field.
That was Winx's 33rd consecutive victory, in a streak that really proved what a champion she is.
If you like the sound of this promo, sign up to Neds here.
Ladbrokes Betting Promotions
Ladbrokes' main Winx promo failed.
They were offering the odds of $2.50 for the champion to win and Buddy Franklin to boot 3+ goals against the Demons.
However, the leading racing offer from Ladbrokes did make amends.
They were offering a 30% boost on the price of all runners in the fixed odds market, in races 1-4 at Caulfield and Randwick.
With all of the winners in and around the betting, this could've been very profitable.

Pointsbet Betting Promotions
Pointsbet's Top 5 for 5 racing special up for grabs in races 1-5 at Randwick.
Only 1 out of the 5 races were won by a favourite, meaning that plenty of punters would've been thankful for this offer.
While it didn't see huge profits, plenty of bonus bets would've been returned.

BetEasy Betting Promotions
BetEasy's offers didn't do much to enthuse, especially on the racing front.
They did have plenty of AFL and NRL multi specials up for grabs though.
The highlights were probably the same game multi special, where you were rewarded with a bonus bet up to $45 if your 3-legger missed by one leg.
While it's great value, it can be hard to snare one of these multis.

Sportsbet Betting Promotions
Sportsbet's bonus bet return for a fixed odds win bet running 2nd or 3rd was available in races 1-6 at Randwick and Caulfield.
However, it was Sportsbet's AFL promo that proved the goods.
They were paying out early on every game as soon as your team was up by 12 points at any break.
The Swans, Cats and Crows all lead by this margin, before going on to lose their respective matches.
This meant that Sportsbet were forced to pay out on both results in 3 AFL games, which was great news for punters.
TAB Betting Promotions
TAB's racing promotion also covered the first six on the card in both Sydney and Melbourne.
This meant that TAB customers were likely to spend a little extra on race 6 at Randwick, where the $2 favourite Verry Elleegant proved herself the class stayer.
With plenty of good sports promos too, TAB were one of the best performers last weekend.
