How does a PointsBet bonus bet work?
A PointsBet bonus bet can be used on any market, except quaddies, and will allow you to either win some money back or add to your profit for the day. When entering your stake, instead of entering cash, there is a box that is for bonus bets. Select this and your bonus bet will be placed on the race.
If your bet wins, you will collect the total winnings, minus the stake of the bonus bet. For example, if you have a $50 bonus bet and place a bet on a $4 horse to win, your bet wins $200 however you only receive $150, due to the $50 bonus bet stake.
