Testing day for punters at the track
It was a tricky weekend for everyone on the punt, especially at the track.
The betting promotions can only do so much, as the well-fancied horses let punters down.
The footy field was the place to be, and one bookie in particular dished up a special that had punters raking in the profits.
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 up for grabs in races 1-4 at Randwick, Moonee Valley and Doomben.
Just 2 of the 12 favourites won across these races, in what was a very ordinary return for punters.
While 4 favs did find a place, these bonus bet returns wouldn't have gone very far in covering the losses.
And as Neds really hung their hat on this racing promo, it wasn't a good week to be betting with this bookie.
If you like the sound of this promo, sign up to Neds here.
Ladbrokes Betting Promotions
The betting promotion that put smiles on the dials of Ladbrokes punters all weekend was their double up special.
Remember, this means double winnings if your NRL side wins by 12+, or if your AFL team triumphs by 24+.
It was a week of thrashings across both codes.
Incredibly, 6 of the 8 NRL games saw a team win by a 12+ margin.
And 5 AFL sides won by a blowout margin of 24+.
With a whopping 11 games where double winnings were handed out, Ladbrokes would've been feeling the pain.

Pointsbet Betting Promotions
It was a mixed weekend for Pointsbet on the sports and racing fronts.
At the track, their bonus bet return special for races 1-6 at Randwick was okay, without doing too much for the punter.
In the AFL, it was similarly mixed.
Their $2.50 odds for Dusty Martin to boot a goal and record 25+ touches was a hit.
However, Patrick Cripps couldn't replicate these numbers for the $3.50 odds that were offered up.

BetEasy Betting Promotions
BetEasy were the other bookie that delivered good results for their customers.
This was largely thanks to their double winnings specials.
The first saw double winnings if you picked the winner in the Roos vs Hawks AFL clash.
And the second was if you jagged the top-runscorer in the first innings of the Ashes test.
Plenty were sure to be on Steve Smith, and cash in on these double winnings.

Sportsbet Betting Promotions
It was a bad weekend for Sportsbet punters.
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 Randwick and Moonee Valley.
This was a limited racing offer that didn't see many good results.
Sportsbet also had an early payout special going for Thursday and Friday's NRL games.
It applied if your side was up by 6+ at half time.
But all three games were won by the team already leading, rendering this special ineffective.
TAB Betting Promotions
TAB's racing promo was just as disappointing.
It was the same as Sportsbet's, with just 6 races being offered up.
And with just two favs getting the win, this promo didn't do much for the punter.
