It sounds like you're saying that putting a bet on something with lower odds of happening is going to return more money? You must be some kind of genius!

I wonder if anything you win from the free bet you can withdraw or if you have to keep it in your Sportsbet wallet?

Well it'd be pretty fucking useless if you couldn't withdraw it. Either way, I'm currently looking at it as if it were monopoly money, so it doesn't bother me too much whatever happens.

Pretty much. But this is the Melbourne Cup, not a roulette wheel and the odds of winning a boxed trifecta versus the possible amount paid out are much better than simply wacking money on the favourite. Each to their own though. I won't tell anyone what to do in this race because it's always totally up in the fucking air.

This is the time of year to try to box stuff, So much prize pool money up for grabs during the melbourne cup, if your ever going to try grab a trifecta this is the time.

one of the hardest melbourne cups to pick this year

big upset with 2nd place, few guys lost a couple of grand because of that

Spoon should have got about $725 by my calculations. Not bad work ripping off that free bet money too lol.

So Spoon's shout at the meet! WOOO!

Nah, the free bet stuff doesn't pay out the bet amount or something like that. Ended up with $382.50 though from a $50 bet, so pretty happy with that :)

I pulled $165 from the $50 bet and $217.50 from the monopoly money bet.
