Melbourne Cup Free Bets

Get on the only sure thing this Melbourne Cup and take advantage of the free bets available from Races.com.au with online bookmakers such as Ladbrokes.com.au!

Why Take A Chance?

It is important to bet with a trustworthy online brand, and our sportsbook of choice is undoubtedly Ladbrokes.com.au. All Races.com.au readers are invited to open an account and bet with Ladbrokes.com.au through the entire 2016 Melbourne Cup Carnival to gain access to the best odds on the widest range of markets and take advantage of the most lucrative bonuses on offer. Make a deposit with the unique code: SPRINGBONUS to take advantage of up to $700 in bonus bets in time for the 2016 Melbourne Cup! 

Why Are They Giving Free Money To Everyone?

There’s a lot of competition in the online betting market and every bookie wants you to become a member of their site. In a nutshell you, the punter, is rewarded with a free bet just for signing up and placing your bets at that given sportsbook. If you haven’t joined any online bookie before, you will quickly see that it’s a no-brainer – it is so much better than where you’ve been punting before. The online betting software is so easy to use and it’s so convenient (you can even bet from your mobile phone anywhere). You will get better odds – online bookmakers have great betting products that will pay you the best tote price no matter what State you are in, so you will always get the best price.

Tell Me More About This Free Bet?

If you are not already a member of Ladbrokes.com.au they will basically give you a free bonus bet equal to your first bet. You can deposit any amount you want, but the free bet is calculated based on your first bet – so make sure you deposit enough to take full advantage of the offer. Unlike the local TAB where you pay each time you go to make a bet, with an online bookie you basically create an “online wallet” by depositing funds from your bank account or credit card. Each time you make a bet, you pay for it out of your online wallet.

How Do I Get The Free Bet?

All you have to do is click here to visit Ladbrokes.com.au. You will arrive on a special page (only available to our visitors). From there, you click the “Join” button and complete the sign up process. On the sign up form, you will notice a special bonus code “SPRINGBONUS” has been pre-filled in to the form that gives you access to the $700 free bet offer. (Their standard front door offer is only a bet match up to $100 – but visit via the Races.com.au links and you’ll be eligible for an even bigger bonus!)

What Makes This Offer The Best?

There are other bonuses out there from other online bookies too, but what makes the $700 bonus bet offer from Ladbrokes.com.au better is two things, (1) it is seven times the standard offer, and (2) you can split your bonus into smaller bets.

The bonus is a “first bet match” offer. Meaning you can deposit any amount you want, as long as you have enough to make a decent first bet – so you can take full advantage of the offer (max $700).

When you get your (up to) $700 bonus from Ladbrokes.com.au you also have the option of splitting your bonus into smaller bets, so for example if your first bet was $300 and get a $300 first bet match bonus you can choose to take it as 1 x $300 bet, 2 x $150 bets, 3 x $100 or 4 x $75 bets – giving you more ways to bet your bonus bets!

What If I Don’t Have $700 To Deposit?

It doesn’t matter! You can deposit any amount and you will receive a bonus bet to the same value of your first bet. Of course, this offer is only available to match your first bet, so you don’t want to be kicking yourself later thinking “I should have done a bigger bet and got a bigger bonus” so we always recommend you start your account with the deposit you can afford. If that is $200 that’s fine, you will still receive a $200 bonus bet if that is the value of the first bet you make – you can place your first bet on any horse, in any race or any sporting event at any odds – you keep the winnings of course – and then Ladbrokes will give you a coupon that you can split up in to 1 to 4 free bets, equal to the value of that first bet.

Remind Me What I Need To Do:

It’s simple! If you are not already a member at Ladbrokes.com.au, you will receive a free bet equal to the amount of your first bet. Just head over to Ladbrokes.com.au, make first bet up to $500 and they will match it with a free bet to the same value.
