One genius punter has netted a whopping $240,000 off one $10 bet on the Melbourne Cup.

According to Sportsbet, the punter nailed the first four - Almandin, Heartbreak City, Hartnell and Qewy.

"The person who won nearly a quarter of a million dollars on the First Four is an absolute genius!" said’s Christian Jantzen.

"Punters outsmarted us by backing Almandin at the ridiculously big odds of $301 earlier in the piece and even today they kept getting stuck into her."

Remember to gamble responsibly.
