Modest returns for punters
In the opposite result to a week ago, the profits were to be had on the track and not the footy field.
Having said that, there was one cracking sports betting promotion that saw some nice returns.
Read on for an extensive wrap of all the major bookies' betting promos.
Bookie Promos: How punters fared last weekend
||Racing & Footy
Neds Betting Promotions
Neds' usual bonus bet return for your fixed odds win bet running a place was up for grabs in races 1-4 at Rosehill, Flemington and Doomben on Saturday.
With 5 favs saluting across these 12 races, it was far from a disaster at the track.
But with less than half of the favourites winning, the profits were very modest, and why we've only assessed Neds as "okay".

Ladbrokes Betting Promotions
Ladbrokes' leading betting promotion was their standard fixed odds + 30% prices for races 1-4 at both Flemington and Rosehill.
This was a cracking offer, with 4 of the 8 favs getting the job done.
With the enhanced odds, punters who backed the favourites were sure to get a juicy profit.
On the footy field, Ladbrokes also had a winning offer.
It was their AFL mega multi, where the $3 odds were handed out as a result of the Pies, Power and Cats all getting the win.
These three all started as strong favourites, so this mega multi was a nice way to add some value to your AFL bet.

Pointsbet Betting Promotions
For Pointsbet, it was a mixed result for punters.
Their racing offer proved to be a corker, by virtue of the fact that it focused on Sydney's races.
It was the typical bonus bet return up for grabs in races 1-6 at Rosehill.
And with a whopping 4 favs greeting the judge, this was the track to be betting at.
However, it was a different story on the footy front.
Both of Pointsbet's season long early payouts didn't do much for the punter.
That's because no team lead by the specified margin before going on to lose.

BetEasy Betting Promotions
BetEasy were dishing up double winnings in the EPL, as well as offering up an EPL same game multi special.
With five of the "big 6" teams winning, punters were sure to cash in.
The only one of the big 6 teams to lose was Chelsea, and they started as underdogs against fellow heavyweights Man U.

Sportsbet Betting Promotions
It was an average weekend for Sportsbet customers.
This bookie's bonus bet return for a fixed odds win bet running 2nd or 3rd was up for grabs in races 1-3 at Rosehill and Flemington.
Considering that the track was the place to be, Sportsbet punters would've been feeling a little short-changed that this promo only covered six races.
TAB Betting Promotions
TAB's footy promos didn't do well with the results just not going punters' way.
Remember, these offers see a bonus bet returned if your NRL side is up by 8+ at half time and loses, or if your AFL team leads by 6+ at any break and gets done.
Remarkably, only one side from each code fulfilled these requirements.
In other words, not many bonus bets were handed out.
TAB punters will be hoping for better luck this week.
