Those able to sniff out hidden Easter eggs aren't the only ones who will be on a winner this weekend. BIG6 punters are also in for a treat with the popular bet type offering major enticements at both Saturday night's Echuca meeting and the Warragul Cup fixture on Sunday.

The Echuca meeting will carry more than $20,000 in jackpot funds, while there is a reduced take on the commission for the special BIG6 at Warragul.

The $20,341.41 that wasn't won on last week's BIG6 at Moonee Valley will carry over to the eight-race Echuca card.

It kicks off with race three at 7.30pm and also takes in the final five races of the night, which includes the evening's features, the J A Connelly Crystal Bucket (race six at 9pm) and the Harcorp Trading Easter Cup (race seven, 9.32pm).

Punters who miss out at Echuca have plenty of incentive to have another go at Warragul with the commission rate slashed to 12.5 percent. Put simply, it means that those who land the winning dividend will get more value for their dollar.

The Warragul BIG6 will also operate on races three to eight, commencing at 1.35pm, and looks very gettable. It includes the day's banner event, the $25,000 Rapidvite Warragul Pacing Cup, which is race seven at 3.58pm.
