A 30 yo woman called Louise went down to Centrelink at Cheltenham in Bayside Melbourne to to get some aid. Louise just loves Christmas and that is all she ever thinks about so much so that all her children are called Santa. She has Christmas music playing 12 months of the year. The office worker at Centrelink asked her, “How many children do you have? “Ten,” Louise replied. “What are their names?” he asked. “Santa, Santa, Santa, Santa, Santa, Santa, Santa, Santa, Santa and Santa,” she answered. “They’re all named Santa?” he asked “What if you want them to come in from playing outside?” “Oh, that’s easy,” Louise said. “I just call out ‘Santa,’ and they all come running in.” “And, if you want them to come to the table for dinner?” “I just say, ‘Santa, come eat your dinner’,” she answered and they all come straight to the dinner table. “But what if you just want one of them to do something specific for you?” he asked.
“Oh, that’s easy,” Louise said. “I just use their last name as they all have a different last name. In case you were going to ask, only one has the surname Claus, I think his father was of Germanic origins!”


The biggest winning wager with us was at Flemington last Saturday:

  • Flemington R7 Bold Star $6k BT at the BT dividend of $3.80 – Credit of $16,800 to the VICBET Client….

And the largest losing wager with us was also at Flemington (Same Client that backed the winner above):

  • Flemington R6 That Girl $6k BT at the BT dividend of $4.60 – Loss of $6k to the VICBET Client……


This week’s $100 FREE VBET goes to Amy O. Good luck with your Free Bet Amy. All the names are dropped in the Hat and one winner will be pulled out, the only criteria to be included is you must have had a bet in December….. Thanks to everyone for sending in the jokes and in any VNEWS if yours is used a credit will appear in your VICBET account……

VH2H – Head to Head Betting

VICBET H2H Betting is available every race 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 text or WhatsApp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) and he will price up for you, this can be in a group of two or three……This a novelty bet type so it is for the small players……


As we roll towards the end of 2019 in a week and start a new decade the next big race day is on Boxing Day, I believe there are about 35 meetings Australia Wide on this day. There are many Picnic Meetings all over the Country that are so much fun like Drouin (VIC), Tumut (NSW), Mareeba (QLD), Esperance Bay (WA) and King Island (TAS)…


Lots of Clients are using POLi now rather Credit/Debit Cards, it is all very secure, is instantaneous and it is done using your own login credentials with your own internet banking……..


We are a little light on for Group Races at the moment, they will hot up again in the next few weeks. There is one Group One Race over the Tasman at Ellerslie, the WFA $200k Zabeel Classic…….


We thought we would roll out a Christmas Promo…..Any deposit today will get a Christmas Bonus after replying to the VNEWS with some feedback about how we can improve things, either the VICBET website or the VNEWS. The Max Christmas Bonus will be $100…..NOTE: One deposit bonus only per Client and turnover is X 2 before 2020 starts……


This is not really a very important fact but with the introduction of Good Friday races in 2017 at Ascot (WA) and Kalgoorlie it means Christmas Day is our only day for the year when we have NO Races…….


We are the Old Fashioned type of Bookmakers (four generations going back to 1941). We are NOT Corporates, we work On Course at the Melbourne Metro Meetings however the 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, we would like to reward if you ever felt like introducing a family member or friend to us. When they set-up an account and mention your name in the “Where did you hear about us” part we will reward you in your VICBET account……You can be assured we will look after them…..


If you are new to VICBET in recent times welcome, if you have had an established account and have misplaced your login details, 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 Race Meetings (except Tasmania) seven days a week……

Good Luck, Happy Punting and a have a great day tomorrow……
