Large crowds

The Futurity Stakes draws in large crowds of punters and bookmakers; even novice punters love to try this event as participating in it can enable them to wager bigger bets on larger tournaments. Given all the excitement and interest in future stakes, bookmakers enjoy a field day as they carry out most of the betting; at least, they used to. The introduction of online betting, however, has curtailed the popularity of traditional betting and choices offered by these bookmakers. The Melbourne Cup is Australia’s richest horse racing event and holds a global renown for also being quite prestigious. Punters all over the world place bets for it online each year. This year, the 2014 Melbourne Cup’s prize money reaches a total of $6.2 million. On the contrary, people are more interested in betting on events such as the Futurity Stakes on a platform that has minimal hassles and maximum chances of winning.

Online betting sites come as the best choice in this regard and offer great opportunities for betting; including options for those with no previous experience in betting on horse racing tournaments such as the Futurity Stakes. The procedure of betting on these sites follows some simple rules; punters just need to register by paying a few dollars and they are allowed to place as many bets as they want after this registration. Given the tough competition in the betting sites’ market, many betting portals are willing to forego the initial subscription fee to lure more customers. Even if they charge these subscription fees, they would offer bonuses and discounts in the later stages of betting so the money spent on the subscription is compensated for in later stages of the betting game.
