Australia's best betting sites

Melbourne Cup bonuses at Crownbet

The racing season is well and truly upon us and if you’re after a good deal you should check out what CrownBet has to offer.

The online betting site, which features Australian actress Nicky Whelan in its ad campaigns, is giving punters the chance to make the most out of the Melbourne Cup with bonus bets and cashback deals.

Through our links, punters can claim an exclusive bonus of up to $600 in bonus bets. All you have to do is follow our links, and create an account. Then make a deposit of up to $400 to have it matched by 150 percent.

Winnings from the bonus bets needs to be wagered at odds of $1.50 or more, and we recommend reading the terms and conditions available on the CrownBet homepage.

Unfortunately, people who live in NSW, SA, WA, and Vic, cannot claim the offer, but you can still sign up to the online betting site and you might receive a similar offer via email (hint).

Get a head start on Derby Day at CrownBet

Place a Fixed-Odds Win Bet on any race at Flemington, which you can do so via your CrownBet online betting account, and if your horse finishes second or third you’ll receive your stake back in bonus bets of up to $50.

If you place a bet larger than $50, you will still receive a maximum of $50 Bonus Bet per race.

You can’t make a bet on any other market, like Best Tote plus, or opt for All-in bets and Multibets, either.

Punters from NSW and SA unfortunately miss out on this offer, but check out CrownBet’s range of betting offers on the promotions page once you’ve signed in.

Bonus bets will be credited to your account within 24 hours of the race, and they are valid for seven days.

Bet Boost with Crown Rewards

CrownBet also gives punters the opportunity to increase their odds for bets placed on thoroughbred racing, like the Melbourne Cup, as well as Greyhounds and Harness events. Known as Bet Boost, punters who have signed up can activate the tool in exchange for CrownBet Rewards Points.

Use the slider on the Bet Boost feature when making your selection to boost your odds up to double the standard odds. The amount it will cost you, in CrownBet Rewards Points, will appear next to the odds.

CrownBet will also offer a special bonus for Melbourne Cup punters closer to the date, so be sure to come back here and check out what’s on offer.

Otherwise head to CrownBet online betting site on your desktop, smartphone, or tablet, and sign up to claim some incredible offers.
