Luxbet’s Origin 1 MOTM betting special
Online bookmaker Luxbet.com is running a generous cash-back special for man of the match bets on game one of the Origin series.
If your pick for the MOTM market doesn’t win, but scores a try during the game, you can pocket a bet refund up to $50 bonus money.
For example: let’s say we put $20 on Johnathan Thurston to be named best afield on Wednesday night. If the Maroons five-eighth scores a try at anytime, but doesn’t win the man of the match award, Luxbet will give us our $20 stake back in bonus bets.
New punters from Queensland, Tasmania, Northern Territory and the ACT can also score a massive 300 per cent welcome bonus throughout Origin 2016.
If you open an online betting account at Luxbet and deposit $50 with your first transaction, the bookie will give you another $150 in free bonus bets.
That means you can start gambling with $200, despite only spending $50 of your own cash.
