Over $3 million refunded thanks to Sportsbet

Sportsbet Spring Racing Carnival refunds

For many punters it was a tough Spring Racing Carnival. The favourites got rolled time and time again and Christmas came early for the bookies. Peaks and troughs are part of the punting game, but customers of Sportsbet have been singing a slightly different tune.

Over the Spring Racing Carnival, Sportsbet refunded over $3 million to customers as part of their money-back promotions. The selected races of the carnival would see punters who backed the horses that finished second or third receive a full cash refund up to $100 per race.

It started back in October in the Turnbull Stakes, with over half a million dollars was refunded on each of the major Spring Carnival meetings – the Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup days.

This provided great relief for favourite backers who got smashed this Spring.

Those who backed Rich Enuff in the Caulfield Guineas thought they were on a sure thing, but it was Shooting To Win who grabbed the victory in the final stages. Sportbet punters licked their wounds and happily received their refund.

We were keen on Lucia Valentina in the Caulfield Cup but it was Japanese champion Admire Raki who put in a superb run to claim the win. Again it was a case of money back for favourite backers.

The Cox Plate would see local hope Fawkner as a clear favourite but once again the international invasion was too good with Adelaide coming over the top to take the win. Thankfully Fawkner held for second for another money back refund.

The Melbourne Cup would see Sportsbet offer refunds for a top four finish, but even that was no easy task for punters. Protectionist stormed away with victory but those who backed Red Cadeaux, Who Shot Thebarman or Signoff would receive their bets refunded up to $100.

Sportsbet continue to prove why they are Australia’s leading online sportsbook with a fantastic Spring Racing Carnival full of fantastic money-back promotions to help punters during a tough carnival.

If you missed out, don’t worry, as Sportsbet continue to deliver weekly promotions that you’ll love. This weekend it’s the Bendigo Cup and Sportsbet will give you a full cash refund up to $100 if your horse finishes second in the big race.

New customers can also take advantage of their $250 Welcome Bonus. Read more on our Sportsbet Review page.
