Punters clean up
Going back to work would have been made easier for punter this week, with healthy profits flowing following the weekend's sport and racing action.
This was especially the case if you used the betting promotions up for grabs.
Read on to find out which bookies took a beating over the weekend.
Bookie Promos: How punters fared last weekend
||Racing & Footy
Neds Betting Promotions
Neds's bonus bet return for your fixed odds win bet running a place was available in races 1-4 at Flemington and Morphettville.
While this is a fairly conservative promo, Neds still got hammered, especially in Melbourne.
Two of the four races were won by favourites, while the favs ran 2nd in the other two races.
This meant that most punters either got the win or saw their stake returned.
It was a similar story in Adelaide, with another two race favourites finishing in the first two places.
This was sure to get punters off to a winning start on Saturday.
If you like the sound of this promo, sign up to Neds here.
Ladbrokes Betting Promotions
On the racing front, Ladbrokes' main betting promotion was the enhanced odds available in races 1-4 at Randwick (Kensington) and Flemington.
And with plenty of favs saluting in Sydney as well, some beefed-up profits were heading your way.
Sports punters had a winning weekend too, especially those who took up Ladbrokes NRL mega multi.
They bumped out the odds to $4 on multi needing the Raiders, Sea Eagles and Roosters to win.
These three favourites did it in style against their opponents, in a round where most of the favs got the job done.

Pointsbet Betting Promotions
Pointsbet had some of their early payout specials going.
In the NBA, you got your cash early if your side was up by 8+ at half time.
And in the NRL's Friday and Saturday games, punters only had to be on the team that was up by 4+ at half time.
Both the Rockets and the 76ers, as well as Souths and the Cowboys were up by the stipulated margins.
But all these teams went on to win, and why Pointsbet was only assessed as "okay."

BetEasy Betting Promotions
BetEasy's punters had another good time of it, with their multi promos sure to have created some more wins.
It was a good chance for racing punters to get in on the act, with the 3+ leg multi promo.
Remember, this sees a bonus bet returned if you miss out by one leg.
But with plenty of favourites saluting, some big profits were on the cards too.

Sportsbet Betting Promotions
Sportsbet's bonus bet return for a fixed odds win bet running 2nd or 3rd was available in races 1-4 at Randwick and Flemington.
As mentioned throughout this article, it really was a weekend for punters who backed the favourites.
Sportsbet's AFL early payout was a winner too.
Anyone who backed the Hawks would've been breathing a sigh of relief, after they led by 12+ at quarter time, and then went on to lose to the Demons.
With Sportsbet's promo, both teams were paid out.
TAB Betting Promotions
It was a similar story in the NRL with TAB.
They offered your stake returned if your NRL team lead by 10+ but went on to lose.
Dragons fans would've been grateful for this offer, after they led by a big margin early in the game only to be overrun by the electric Eels.
And with the standard bonus bet return available in races 1-3 at Flemington, Morphettville and Randwick, TAB racing punters were also lapping up the profits.
