The horses save punters' bacon
It wasn't the easiest weekend for punters, especially on the footy field.
That's because a fair few of the sports betting promotions steered punters awry.
The good news however is that there were plenty of winnings to be had at the track.
This ensured that no matter which bookie you bet with, it wasn't a total disaster.
Bookie Promos: How punters fared last weekend
||Racing & Footy
Neds Betting Promotions
Neds' bonus bet return for your fixed odds win bet running a place was this time available in races 1-4 at Rosehill, Caulfield and Eagle Farm.
Across these 12 races, 5 favourites got the job done, while another 3 found a place.
This is a very respectable return from the favs, in what was a good start to Saturday.
Where punters came unstuck was in the footy.
Neds would've drawn plenty in with their $3.50 odds for the Titans to get the better of the Broncos.
It was the Broncs who were too good in the local derby.
If you like the sound of these promos, sign up to Neds here.
Ladbrokes Betting Promotions
Ladbrokes main betting promotion was their usual enhanced odds for every runner in races 1-4 in Sydney and Melbourne.
And with two favs saluting at both Caulfield and Rosehill, this was a great promo to be on.
That wasn't the case with Ladbrokes mega multis.
Both the AFL and NRL versions were let down by one result.
Footy fans will be hoping for better luck next time.

Pointsbet Betting Promotions
Pointsbet's racing special saw a bonus bet return available in races 1-6 at Caulfield.
Three out of the six favs greeted the judge, and some of them at a very healthy price too.
One of Pointsbet's sports promos was also a good one.
They offered $2 odds for the Cats to beat the Swans and Tom Hawkins to kick 1+ goal.
He booted 5 in what was a dominant Geelong victory.

BetEasy Betting Promotions
BetEasy's double winnings were a hit once again.
They were available in the Tigers vs Pies clash, and were credited to all the punters who stuck with the favourites Richmond.
BetEasy's bonus bet return multi special would've been especially useful this week.
With a few shock results in both the AFL and NRL, this promo meant the difference between losing your dough and getting it returned as a bonus bet.

Sportsbet Betting Promotions
Sportsbet's standard bonus bet return for a fixed odds win bet running 2nd or 3rd was up for grabs in races 1-4 at Rosehill and Caulfield.
On a day when the favs were getting home, Sportsbet punters might have been a tad disappointed that this special only covered 8 races.
TAB Betting Promotions
TAB's bonus bet return also applied to races 1-4 in Sydney and Melbourne.
But the TAB also had some useful footy promos.
Their bonus bet return if your AFL side led by 6+ at any break or if your NRL team was up by 8+ then tasted defeat came in handy.
That's because these scenarios applied to three AFL results and two NRL games over the weekend.
