It can often be described as the hardest bet type to win on but the dividends can be a windfall if you can land the Big6 at Tabcorp Park Melton on a Friday night.
Often the pool will jackpot, or only a portion will be won through the advent of the ever popular flexi-betting.
That however, gives punters an opportunity to lock-in a big result on a weekend where the entire town of Melbourne will be in celebration mode.
Grand Final-eve has become a stand-alone fixture with top class racing across the thoroughbred and trotting codes giving those having a flutter even more incentive to get involved.
The Big6 will this week start with arguably the biggest race of the night in the University Foods Claiming Masters Final.
It will take in races 3-8 with a small field of six in the last leg likely to entice those looking for a free-hit.
The TAB.com.au will be seeding a $10,000 injection into the bet type and as we have seen in the past that means the pool will fill-up quickly.
The Good Form boys will have the best way to play the Big6 on the blog Friday afternoon.
