A guy walks into a bar one late afternoon and asks the bartender for a drink. Then he asks for another and another. After a couple more drinks, the bartender gets quite concerned. “What’s the matter Fella?” the bartender asks.”My wife and I had a big fight,” explained the guy. “We agreed we won’t talk or acknowledge each other for 20 days. “The bartender thought about this for a while. “But, isn’t that a good thing that she isn’t talking to you or even noticing you are there?” “Yeah, it is, that’s why I’m here, it’s the 20th night right now.”


Last Saturday the biggest winning wager with us was at Eagle Farm:

  • Eagle Farm Race 7 – Vanna Girl $10k Fixed at $2.20 – Credit of $12k to the VICBET Client….Never in doubt…..

And the largest losing wager with us was at Rosehill:

  • Rosehill Race 3Bounding to Win $8k Fixed at $3.70 – Loss of $8k to the VICBET Client….Looked home until the last stride……

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 go to our Live Chat or WhatsApp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) and he will price up for you, this can be in a group of two or three, max wager is $100 when he does this……This is a novelty bet type so it is for the small players……


This week it is Royal Ascot….Five consecutive days and six races each day, most are Group Races…..Check out a great Promo below…..


Currently we do not do the BOB or Top Fluc on all Tasmanian Racing, the reason is there is an issue with the odds that are been displayed.

In 1711 it was Queen Anne who first saw the potential for a racecourse at East Cote, declaring that it looked an ideal place for “horses to gallop at full stretch” while out riding. Greencoats have formed the ceremonial guard for The Monarch at Ascot since 1744. It is rumoured that the velvet uniforms were originally made from material left over from curtains in Windsor Castle. By 1752 the popularity of attending the racing at Ascot was becoming apparent in social circles with the extra entertainments laid on for 18th century racegoers included cockfighting, prize-fighting, gaming tents, jugglers, ballad singers, ladies on stilts and freak shows. Until 1783, jockeys were permitted to wear whatever they liked when racing. This caused a great deal of confusion when attempting to pin down the winners of each race. Jockeys were thus instructed to wear the colours of their horse’s owners. In the late 18th century it was decided Men in the Royal Enclosure must wear top hats. What is now known as Royal Ascot started to take shape with The Gold Cup in 1807, Ascot’s oldest surviving race. The winning owners still receive a gold trophy which becomes their property. At 2pm sharp, each of the five days begins with the Royal Procession – the arrival of The Queen and the Royal party in horse-drawn landaus, which parade along the track in front of the racegoers. The inaugural Royal Procession was in 1825 with King George IV. Today Royal Ascot stages 25 days of racing throughout the year, 16 Flat meetings between the months of May and October and 9 National Hunt meetings between November and April. The Royal Meeting, commencing this week is undoubtedly the most famous of these, where top class racing is combined with tradition, pageantry and style.
