Catch a Season 8 $10,000 fish tomorrow and double the dough!

There’s never been a better time to register for Million Dollar Fish and wet a line in the Territory, with competition underwriter SportsBet doubling the dough for any angler who catches a Season 8 $10,000 barra tomorrow.

The one-day-only campaign celebrates National Gone Fishing Day and everything great about angling. Territorians and visitors are encouraged to explore the Top End’s world-class fishing regions including Tiwi Islands, Darwin, Katherine, Kakadu and Arnhem Land for the chance to hook a red-tagged barramundi, and turn their $10,000 prized catch into a $20,000 loot.

SportsBet NT Operations and Partnerships Manager Thijs Bors said he looked forward to handing out a big cheque very soon.

“Registering is quick, easy and free, and by doing so, you might find yourself a million dollars better off,” he said.

The chances of reeling in a prize-tagged barramundi have never been better. Nine barramundi worth $1 million have now been released (at least one in each region), including the Season 8 Million Dollar Fish, plus those from previous seasons. All are still eligible to be caught. Once one of the nine is caught, the remaining eight become $10,000 fish.

Anglers must be registered for Season 8 to claim any cash. By registering for free, they also go into the monthly Lucky Prize Pool to win thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes. To find out more and register, visit
