A couple were Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve and the shops were  packed full of shoppers buying their loved ones gifts. Walking through the shopping centre the surprised wife looked up and noticed her husband was no where around and she was very upset because it was meant to be a special time shopping together. She took her phone out of her handbag and called her husband, “where are you, honey? She enquired. The husband, in a calm voice said, “baby girl remember the Jewellery store we went in to five years ago? Where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we couldn’t afford, and I told you that I would get it for you on day ?” His wife started to cry with joy and said, “Yes, I remember that necklace and the store. “He said, “Well, I’m in the Bar right next door to it……”


Last Saturday the largest winning wager with us was in the last race at Flemington:

  • Flemington Race 9 – Pauls Regret $3k TF at $7 – Credit of $18k to the VICBET Client…..

And the largest losing wager with us was at Randwick:

  • Randwick Race 8 – Criaderas $6k TF at $3.90 and third – Loss of $6k to the VICBET Client..

We have the Daily Big Bets appearing in “Real Time” on the VICBET Home Page on the Main website, they appear as the largest wager first……


This week’s $100 FREE VBET goes to Robert T. Thanks for the sending in that funny joke. Keep sending them in by Live Chat or email to…..

VH2H – Head to Head Betting

VICBET H2H Betting is unique to us and is available every race day and night in two groups of three. It is the three Favourites (1st, 2nd and 3rd) combined in one H2H outcome and the second H2H is the 4th, 5th and 6th Favourites combined, excluding the Fav if it is Odds-on (under $2). This is a moving dynamic market so as the odds change for the actual race the odds will change for the H2H outcome. Also, you can pick your own H2H outcome, then simply go to our Live Chat or WhatsApp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) and he will price it up for you.


All the exciting races are pretty much over now until the new year. Wyong is hosting the Magic Millions 2YO Classic tomorrow which is a great indication for the big MM races early next year. There is also a group 2 Race at Ascot and two Listed Races at Doomben on this upcoming Saturday.


From us at the VICBET Team, we all hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Stay safe and enjoy the time with your loved ones…..

We are the Old Fashioned type of Bookmakers (four generations going back to 1941) concentrating purely on Horse Racing, no Sports, Harness or Greyhounds . My Late Father Allen Cleary was a Bookmaker from 1956 – 2006, his Uncle Bob was a Bookmaker from 1941 – 1961. Today it is myself Rod and my Son Tim sharing the reins. We are NOT Corporates, we work On Course at the Melbourne Metro Meetings on the Rails (when there are people at the track), however the vast majority of our turnover is Online. Once again your referrals are always very much appreciated and one of the main sources of us sourcing new Clients so thanks in advance…….


If you are new to VICBET in recent times welcome, if you have had an established account and have misplaced your login details, jump on the Live Chat, reply here to the VNEWS  or FREECALL 1300-126126…… We will forward your details to you by text and email…..

Finally we are the only Bookmaker doing the Best of the Best (BOB) on all Australian Mainland Race Meetings seven days a week plus we offer a service on Overseas races (Fixed and Middle Tote available) through to about 4am every night……
