Did everyone have their $3 million dollar bet on with Ladbrokes today? For $3 I thought it was worth joining them just to have a go. I’m betting the chances are better than winning the lottery. You had to pick the winner in the last 8 horse races at Caulfield Guineas Day. It’s a big promotional push they’re doing during the Spring Racing Carnival.
They also offered a $20 refund if you lost on Race 3 today, which was too good to resist as you couldn’t lose. Well I did lose my bet, but my $20 was refunded and I don’t mean a bonus bet refund, I mean the full $20 was refunded. I have never taken much notice of Ladbrokes as I’ve never opened an account with them but if their promotions and bonuses are anything like today I think I’ll be putting more bets on with them.
Ladbrokes will be doing the same $3,000,000 special promotion for another six horse racing events. That’ll be a total of $21 million up for grabs over the Spring Racing Carnival. The race meetings will be..

It’s cheaper than putting the lotto on and you have a form guide to give you an idea of how likely your numbers are to drop. You can’t do that with your lottery numbers! If other punters pick the same winning numbers on the day you’ll have to share it with them.
The form guide didn’t help me at all today though as my picks were shocking! Of the 8 races at Caulfield today I picked ZERO winners for my $3 million dollar entry. I checked the news just now and couldn’t find if there was a winner or winners. Here’s my miserable picks.
Correction: Oh I did have a win! A reader pointed it out, thanks. I won with Fawkner in race 6!

And that is why I only ever put my racing bets on for a place! Still, I’ll give it another go next week for Caulfield Cup Day. For $3 it’s worth a try.
Update: No one won the $3 million Mega Pick with Ladbrokes. From their Twitter account..
“There’s still a few savvy punters in the hunt for the Megapick. 22 live entries remain with three legs to go.”
“Bad luck, punters – Amicus has knocked the remaining entries out of the Megapick. The good news is it’s on again next week!”
