Most Kiwis will use an Australian-licensed bookie to wager on the Melbourne Cup, but they are under no obligation to wager with one based in Australia.
NZ laws mean you can truly shop around and find the best odds. Having said that, chances are, when you take the shed full of promos available into consideration, you will choose an Aussie one, or wager on the NZ TAB, although several recent studies suggest you are far better off betting with a corporate bookie.
