An (Steinh)offer you can't refuse!
Cape Town - An (Steinh)offer you can't refuse! Money back on Legal Eagle if it loses.
Leading South African bookmakers BET.co.za have decided to have a bit of horseplay ahead of the Sun Met this Saturday.
That's right folks, to mark the biggest horse racing event of the year we've decided to throw together a promotional offer out of the goodness of our hearts.
Unlike the Trojan horse that was a certain JSE listed company, this offer is exactly what it looks like. Simply place a bet on Markus Jooste's former horse Legal Eagle to win the Sun Met and if it loses, we will refund your stake.
Asked for his thoughts on the matter, BET.co.za Marketing Manager Brenton Chelin said, ‘With the interest surrounding Markus Jooste's horses and this year's Met, we decided to offer up some respite for those affected by the Steinhoff share price the only way we know how - a risk-free bet.
'Markus Jooste once referred to himself as the Robin Hood of Epsom, but the recent revelations have proven that far from the truth. Rather than stealing from the rich to give to the poor, he tricked plenty of hard-working South Africans out of their money while living a life of luxury.
'This is our way of offering those people a way of getting their own back. And what better way to do it than by backing his own prize horse he's had to sell on with the rest of his stable.’
With the Met being one of the biggest horse racing days of the year, BET.co.za is holding nothing back. Apart from the risk-free bet on Illegal Eagle, we'll also be offering First Race Insurance, our Sh*t In Special and our Done By A Donkey Promotion.
