Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has paid out more than $13 million on Melbourne Cup winner Almandin, who was the biggest firmer in the Cup on raceday.

  • $13,599,367.00 paid out to punters who backed Almandin
  • Punter turns $10 First Four into $241,000 windfall
  • 84,868 punters bet on the winner
  • 2 punters backed the horse at odds of $301

Incredibly, one customer turned a $10 First Four bet into $241,744.00 by having Almandin, Heartbreak City, Hartnell and Qewy in the correct order!

When markets opened, two customers were shrewd enough to back Almandin at odds of $301, with one punter staking $100 for a collect of $30,100. The other had a $20 bet at the same huge odds.

The biggest individual wagers on the German import were $5465.70 at $11 for a return of $60,122.70 and $5,000 at $11 for a return of $55,000.

“Punters outsmarted us by backing Almandin at the ridiculously big odds of $301 earlier in the piece and even today they kept getting stuck into her. The person who won nearly a quarter of a million dollars on the First Four is an absolute genius!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
