  • I recently won a sweep at work. I bought a $5 sweep and won $75, great odds for a small bet!

  • I love having a few dollars on the Melbourne Cup as we always watch the race and it makes it so exciting! This year no luck but a great day we had!

  • I only bet once a year and it is on Melbourne Cup Day, I don’t have any helpful tips really I just went for the name, I don’t really put much money on, but I was happy I won some money on Almandin.

  • Thats a great idea, if you are going to spend extra then sacrifice something you were going to spend on anyway, that way you arent out of pocket! Love your work!

  • Whenever I want to spend money on something, I sacrifice something else, such as a cup of coffee. I only ever sacrifice treat money. The price of a cup of coffee spent on something is acceptable for me.

  • Not a gambler – so unable to help.

  • Save your money and don’t bet


  • I usually just go with the work sweeps. Not a gambler at all!
