Horse Racing & Betting Guide
One of the reasons horse racing is so popular is the range of betting available! There’s a bet to suit every players’ need in horse racing. Some are perfect for an adrenaline rush and a jackpot prize. Others are ideal for those who like to play it safe to keep the money coming in! Whatever it is you’re looking for from a bet you can find it in horse racing.
There are so many bets that it would be unfair of anyone to ask you to remember them all! That’s okay though; we’re here to give you a full breakdown of each one!
Before we do that, though, there are a few terms worth explaining first. Primarily these will be the types of bet that make up the building blocks of all other bets!
Betting building block
The most important bet you must know about is the single bet. It doesn’t get any more basic than this bet. Here you’re making one selection(e.g. a horse to win a race) where money will be won or lost on the result!
After this, there is the double-bet. The double-bet is only slightly more complicated than the single. Here you would be asked to make two selections, for example, two horses to win their races. When the first horse wins its race, your winnings from that race will go on the second. You only make money if both horses win their races. However, the prizes have increased exponentially to make up for this!
With this in mind, you should now be able to work out how the other bets work. These are namely the triple, fourfold, fivefold, sixfold, sevenfold, and eightfold. Essentially, you are letting all your winnings go on the next race. The number will tell you how many selections need to win for the bet. So for an eightfold, you’ll need eight horses to win their race!
