horsebettingSo you want to bet on The Melbourne Cup?

You should. It’s fun, exciting and you can really show off your skills!

Betting makes the enjoyment of horse racing so much greater.

There is nothing like seeing the horse you picked come home a winner with your money riding on it!

You can even try futures betting!

Spine-tingling! And one of the most thrilling experiences in sport.

How to do it, you ask?

It will only take 2 minutes to fill in your details.

Have your credit card handy so you can make a deposit. Don’t worry about credit card security. It’s extremely safe and hundreds of thousands of people bet like this every day. I haven’t heard anyone have any trouble.

The money you deposit will be used to bet with, so choose whatever you are comfortable with… for example, $50 is a good amount for a first timer. Deposit any amount you like. Don’t worry, you’ll have an opportunity to put a limit on your bets so you always bet responsibly. Add more later if you wish to place larger bets. Hopefully with your expert skills, you won’t need to add any more cash. Just play off your winnings!

Now, you’re up and running!

It’s so much fun to bet on horse racing! Feel the excitement!

Even if you go to the track, you can bet right from your picnic rug, champagne in one hand, phone app in the other. No need to join the long queues at the totalisator window.

Three things to do now:

1. Study the form. 2. Study the form. 3. Study the form.
