It's Raining Bets promo proves a hit
TAB Sportsbet customers embraced the 'Its Raining Bets' promotion which commenced last Saturday.
Over the four Saturdays in April, $500,000 in bets will be given away to lucky customers who place a bet at their local TAB agency.
Last week there were bets of $5,000 given away at several outlets while one lucky customer at the Williamstown TAB won a $1,000 bet. There were also many other smaller bets won throughout Victoria on the day.
Customers simply need to spend $20 or more on a bet this Saturday to be a chance of cashing in on the promotion for David Jones Australian Derby Day. If their bet is successful, then they could be in for a bigger surprise when they go to collect their winnings!
