IASbet's Big Bet Blast 3: $100,000 In Betting Bank Prizes

MELBOURNE, Aug. 26 /Medianet International-AsiaNet/ --

Australia's horse racing carnivals are renowned for three things: superstar gallopers, unparalleled fashion and the richest races on the calendar. Entering into its third edition, IASbet's Big Bet Blast promotion joins the list as a feature attraction with $100,000 in Melbourne Cup Day betting bank prizes and five chances to win.

Running until 26 October 2008, Big Bet Blast 3 is one of the country's most lucrative racing promotions. Five massive betting banks to bet with on Melbourne Cup Day are up for grabs, including a $60,000 Grand Prize and four $10,000 runner-up prizes. Winners get to keep the profit of the day.

"Regardless of whether you're a serious or recreational punter, the appeal of winning a massive betting bank to bet with on one of the best days on the racing calendar is enormous. Who doesn't want to become one of Australia's largest punters for a day?" said Mark Read, IASbet Managing Director. To date, fifteen lucky punters have cashed in on the Big Bet Blast promotion. The most notable is Vincent K who, after winning the International Grand Prize in autumn this year, pocketed $90,000 in profit from eight strategic and life changing bets on Grand National Day at Aintree Racecourse in the United Kingdom.

"I am amazed by IAS's [International All Sports] generosity. This is my biggest win on the horses and it came as a nice surprise, as I know nothing about UK racing and picked the Grand National winner Comply Or Die because I liked the name. I can now treat my family to a holiday," said Vincent after his Big Bet Blast experience.
