How much are the shares in the Punters Club?
Shares are $20 per share.
Can I buy an unlimited amount of shares?
No, you can’t. The max amount of shares per person is 25 which is a total spend per person of $500. We have kept this in line with responsible wagering. We take it seriously and want our members to stay in control.
When will shares stop selling?
Shares will stop being sold at 10 am Saturday, 16th October 2021. The club is capped at a balance of $500,000. Shares will stop being sold at this point should they be reached.
How long does the Club run for?
The club runs for one day with betting set to commence from approximately 11 am to 6 pm Saturday 16th October 2021.
When will the punters club funds be transferred back to members after the punting has finished?
Whatever funds remain in the club balance once TheMailBag has stopped betting for the day and all pending bets have resulted, likely to be around 6:00 pm Saturday 16th October 2021 will be withdrawn and distributed based on shares bought into the club per member to their linked Ladbrokes account.
Do I need to have a Ladbrokes account to join the punters club?
Yes, this way we can verify you are 18yo and also covers compliance with AML and responsible gambling. The other reason is so that funds can be transferred when the club finishes up and money is back into your account.
You will need to link an existing Ladbrokes account to your Punt Club account or, create a new Ladbrokes account and link it to Punt Club. We will help you through this process within the Punt Club experience when joining the club, and https://support.puntclub.com/faq/how-do-i-relink-a-ladbrokes-account/

Will I be able to place any bets for the punters club?
No, all bets will be placed by Club Captain Jack Dicken and The MailBag Team but you will have the opportunity to stay in touch by following the action through the Punt Club dashboard, notifications, and respective social media streams/channels. We will also be doing a club member survey on Friday to get some best bets and quaddie selection from you so there is definitely some engagement and involvement in the bets from members.
You are also more than welcome to contribute some suggested bets or tips for the guys and the club via the Punt Club dashboard and comments section, which is part of the fun of a big punters club after all!
Can I pull my money out at any stage during the day of the Punters Club?
No, the funds are all part of the Punters Club pool for the day’s betting activities. Leave Club functionality will be disabled. Whatever funds remain in the club balance once TheMailBag has stopped betting for the day and all pending bets have resulted, likely to be around 6:00 pm Saturday 16th October 2021 will be withdrawn and distributed based on shares bought into the club per member to their linked Ladbrokes account. From there the member has any number of withdrawal options with our approved licenced wagering partners at Ladbrokes to access their money.
Do I need to turn over any funds that are transferred to my verified Ladbrokes account after the club finishes?
No, given the club funds have been turned over as part of the larger punters club pool there is no issue with withdrawing the funds.
If I am self-excluded or have a closed Ladbrokes account can I join?
No, please don’t join. If you do we will by law be forced to refund your purchase.
How will I know which bets have been placed and what our results are?
These will be published and updated in close to real-time via the punt club site and app, on the club dashboard, by push message and email whilst also being posted on other social streams/channels. We will do our best to communicate these as quickly both before and after each race/event as possible. As a member, you also have control of the notifications you wish to receive in the Account Settings section.
Are there any betting guarantees for this Punters Club?
No, it would be irresponsible to make claims that the club will show a profit, but please be assured the Captain and Expert panel of Tipsters on the team are taking this extremely seriously and want to make this club an enjoyable experience to educate, entertain and engage with the members while doing everything possible to show a profit for the day without guaranteeing it.
As a member, can I post comments on the Club dashboard wall?
Yes, although please do so in a fun and respectful manner. We do have the ability as moderator/admin to remove you from the club and commenting if deemed abusive and/or inappropriate. One of the big aims of the day is to have fun as a big group especially as many can’t get to the track so let’s make it enjoyable for all!
I am trying to sign up for the club but it is telling me to start my own club?
When a customer is asked to ‘create’ their own club, it is because you have registered directly with Punt Club before Joining the club.
If you join by hitting the “SIGN UP” button on the Club invitation page, then choose “REGISTER to Join the Club”.
How do I control my notifications settings and preferences?
Just log into your punt club account and go to Account Settings then Notifications and you can control from there;

Great, just log in to your punt club account then go to manage subscriptions and select the “Purchase more Shares” option for the Club;
