If you’re a Two-Up aficionado who knows their kips from their ewans, you’ll need no convincing. But for the uninitiated, whether your day is spent attending a dawn service, enjoying something fresh off the BBQ, or just spending some down time with friends, there’s always a good time to be had at your local with some Two-Up on Anzac Day.
No-one knows the true origin of Two-Up, but what we do know is that it quickly became a regular fixture of Anzac Day celebrations for returned soldiers — and to this day, it remains illegal every other day of the year.
Nowadays it’s not just for soldiers; everyone is encouraged to join in as we gather to remember the sacrifices of our servicemen and women. So grab your pennies, PokitPal fans. We’ve got some of our favourite watering holes lined up for you.
Sydney: The Potts Point Hotel
The former Sugarmill returns this year with the Two Up Arena, starting from 11:30AM. It’s sure to draw a crowd! Best of all, service men and women in uniform are offered 20% off food and drinks, as well as a complimentary drink at the door. But of course, whether you’re in uniform or not, PokitPal’s got you covered, with 15% cash back when you link your card in-app. Come in spinner!
Adelaide: The Austral Hotel
Sadly, it’s illegal to play Two-Up in Adelaide in any place other than an RSL. But The Austral’s ever-popular PokitPal offer means you can enjoy a quiet one with mates on us after you’ve attended the dawn service. When you sign up with PokitPal and link your card, you’ll score a free jug of beer or cider. And with our $10 Refer-A-Friend offer, you can rack up the savings with every friend who jumps aboard the PokitPal train.
Newcastle: The Clarendon Hotel
For the Novacastrians, we’ve got the fantastic Clarendon Hotel, with a bunch of awesome craft beers and, if you link your card to the PokitPal app, a free schnitzel! They’re open early, right after the dawn service, so if you’re in the mood to spend your Anzac Day with a top feed, some Two-Up, some of Australia’s finest local produce, and of course, a couple of mates, this is the way to go.
Speaking of mates, if you’re planning a day out, why not take advantage of our Refer-A-Friend program? With $10 for you and a mate when they make their first purchase, you can help them save on meals, drinks, clothing and more, all while pocketing a $10 bonus cashback on us. You can check your unique referral code in the PokitPal app under the Instore tab.
