WE are deep into the cold winter now, which means the football codes are reigning supreme in Australia.
Luckily, all the leading online bookmakers have come to the party to enhance the already enthralling AFL and NRL seasons.
To go along with the footy bonuses, our trusted bookmakers are offering both money-back specials and boosted returns on greyhound and thoroughbred races all throughout the week.
Take a look at our compilation of all the best deals from our favourite sites and make yourself some money.
AFL and NRL multi insurance
Both incarnations of footy in Australia are about to enter the business end of their respective seasons, which means Sportsbet is about to ramp up its specials to astronomical levels.
Place a footy multi of five legs or more on either the NRL or the AFL this weekend and if you miss out by one leg, Sportsbet will give you cash back up to $50.
AFL rounds 16-23 money back special
Sick of your team taking a lead into a break but blowing it before the final siren?
We know the feeling, which is why we are loving the cash-back promotion Sportsbet is running until the completion of the home and away season.
Place a bet on any team for the remainder of the regular campaign and if they lead at any change but go on to lose the match, you can get cash back up to $50.
Baseball multi boost
The Major League Baseball season is just starting to warm up, and punters who want to invest in America’s great pastime only have to head over to Sportsbet.
The bookie is offering a 20 per cent bonus on any baseball multi of four legs or more featuring MLB matches played on Wednesday and Thursday.
NRL Thursday night bonus
Thursday’s critical clash between the North Queensland Cowboys and the Canterbury Bulldogs is sure to draw plenty of money from punters.
Thus, it should come as no surprise that Sportsbet.com.au is running a special NRL betting bonus for the top-four tussle in Townsville.
Place a head-to-head bet on the Cowboys vs. Bulldogs match and receive a 50% boost on your winnings, excluding your original stake, up to a maximum of $50 real cash.

Looking to have a punt on the dish lickers on Thursday night?
Sportsbet will give you a 50% bonus up to $20 on your first winning bet at the Sandown greyhound races on Thursday, July 21.
Sports multi insurance and bonus boost
William Hill continues to run a fantastic tiered bonus and money-back special across all sports.
Place a four-leg multi or bigger on any sport this weekend and get your cash back up to $50 if you miss out by one leg.
If your multi salutes, you can score a tiered bonus up to 40% on top of your winnings.
Win bonuses start at 2.5% (four-leg multi) and range up to 40% (12+ legs), paid out as bonus bets up to a $5000 maximum.
Chase the Bunny special
William Hill’s ever-popular greyhound betting special returns this Thursday night.
Place a fixed odds bet on any runner this week in the qualifying races and get a multiplier bonus up to the value of your stake.
Bonuses are paid as a dollar value of the second- and third-place runners’ box numbers multiplied.
For example: if you win with a $20 bet while boxes four and five take out the minor places, you get a $20 bonus (4 x 5).
Qualifying races this Thursday are Dubbo races 1-10, Maitland races 1-10 and Dapto races 1-10
Tour de France stage winner money back special
Tour 2016 is hitting the latter stages, but that does not mean punters can’t find some great value on the road to Paris.
Place money on any cyclist to win the stage and if your rider fails to win, but finishes in second position, you get cash back up to the value of $25.
F1 money back special
It’s a two-way battle between the Mercedes duo of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton in the drivers’ standings as Formula 1 heads to Hungary this weekend.
Back any driver to qualify on pole in this Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix and if they don’t, but their teammate does, you’ll get money back up to $25.
