Luxbet.com Melbourne Cup Betting Review & how to bet on the Melbourne Cup with Luxbet.com

Luxbet has it’s ‘All in’ market ready to go for the Melbourne Cup. You can get to the Melbourne Cup page straight off the home page by selecting the ‘Feature Racing’ header then moving the sub headers down to see the Melbourne Cup link. Unfortunately, Luxbet doesn’t have a quick links bar for major upcoming events so you will need to go through the ‘Feature Racing’ header until race week when it will come up in the normal ‘Horse Racing’ header.

Luxbet is better on desktop than on your mobile, so we recommend signing up to Luxbet as soon as you can via your desktop device to claim the any bonus bet amounts offered, signing up via your mobile browser works, just fine, but to get the exclusive bonus bet offering don’t sign up via their app. If you’re looking for the Melbourne Cup via Luxbet on your mobile, first select the menu and go to ‘Other Racing’. This will bring up the ‘Feature Racing’ link. However, the Melbourne Cup is still another page deep under ‘Australia’ before it appears.

Luxbet Melbourne Cup Fact – Did you know…

Luxbet tipsters picked the 2014 favourite for the Melbourne Cup “Fiorente“, although most everyone snagged the fav. that year Luxbet were pushing this tip early on in the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival.

Markets
Like all the Melbourne Cup bookies Luxbet currently only has an ‘All in’ for the ‘Win’ and ‘Each Way’ markets on the Melbourne Cup when it’s not Cup Week. Later you will be able to find the normal range of markets like any other race. By selecting the Melbourne Cup link before race week you will be directed to a page with a list of all the available horses, similar to a ‘Pick the Premier’ page for sports. You can select either ‘Win’, ‘Place’ or ‘Each Way’ straight from the ‘All in’ race page. Luxbet is offering a Cashout feature on these bets so if you want to put on an early bet you can also exit it if you have a change of heart.

Once the full markets become available, if you select the race link you will go to the race page. The Luxbet page isn’t quite as clean as some of the other big bookmakers but it is still fairly straight forward. They have all the normal Win, Place, Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta and First Four markets. Again they offer a Cashout feature on these bets also.

Luxbet do not have any of the more complicate markets that some of the other bookmakers offer which is good if you just want to bet and not be distracted by seemingly good, but usually less value markets.

Luxbet “normally” push the envolope in the Deposit Bonus price war, and they did early on in the Spring Racing Carnival, so lucky you if you got onto their $502 Deposit Bonus. If you didn’t they’ve launched a 200% Deposit Match Bonus, up to $50, so the simple offer is… Deposit $50, Bet with $150, which is a fantastic deal for Melbourne Cup punters.

Generally Luxbet do not have many promotions like the other corporate bookmakers, so don’t go there looking for a huge cash back deal. They do, however, have ‘Cash Out’ as standard so depending on your strategy it might be worth placing early bets with them.

Luxbet put out a Melbourne Cup Sweepstakes on their site, although not always clear, we recommend using our very own Melbourne Cup Sweep Download for this years Melbourne Cup.

Luxbet are a good pick for placing your Melbourne Cup bets, what’s more, Luxbet usually come out with the biggest corporate bookmaker bonus bet in the weeks leading up to the Melbourne Cup, so if you’re after the biggest single return for your deposit in a single bet then keep an eye on Luxbet, sign up and deposit to get a huge Melbourne Cup deposit bonus bet offer.

We strongly recommend signing up online via this link before using the Luxbet app to claim the full bonus rather than trying to claim a bonus bet through signing up via the app (sometimes the exclusive Melbourne Cup bonus code can be lost).

Overall
Luxbet has the Melbourne Cup available straight off their home page so it’s easy to get to. Just remember to click down once when you select the ‘Feature Racing’ header or you won’t be able to see the Melbourne cup link. Lux doesn’t have any special markets or fancy deals so if you can get these somewhere else it is worth using them first. Their website also isn’t quite as intuitive as some others but still simple enough. If the horse you are backing for Melbourne Cup has better odds at Luxbet then use them for sure, otherwise there are friendlier websites and good deals to be had elsewhere.
