Different Types of Bet

There are a number of different bets you can make. Here's a look out how they work;

  1. To Win
    The most simple is a 'win' bet, in this case you simply pick which horse you think will come first. If you are right you win, if not you lose.
  2. Place
    You can also make a 'place' bet. In this case you bet on the horse finishing in top 3 or 4 (depending on how many horses are in the race). If there are less than 8 runners your horse needs to be either 1st or second, if there are more than 8, 3rd place would also count. In races with more than 16 horses, 4th counts as placing. 'Place' bets will have reduced odds, as they are more likely to come off than 'win' bets.
  3. Each Way
    Making an 'each way' bet is like placing a 'win' and 'place' bet on one horse at the same time. If you placed a bet for £10 each way on a horse, you are betting £10 on it to win and £10 on it to place. Bear in mind that this means you'd lose £20 altogether if your horse lost.
  4. Exacta
    This is where you bet on which horse will come first and which will come second in the correct order. As this is harder to guess, you will get increased odds and may win considerably more. A 'reverse' exacta is where you bet on the horses to come 1st and 2nd but in either order. As with an 'each way' bet, this is effectively two bets in one, so costs twice as much.
  5. Trifecta
    This is this is the same idea as an Exacta bet except you bet on the horses to come 1st, 2nd, 3rd.
  6. Placepot
    Guess a horse that places in all the placepot races (normally the first six) and you'll win big. You need to use a betting card to place this sort of bet, more on which further down the article.
  7. Quadpot
    The same idea as above, but you only need four correct guesses in the four nominated quadpot races. Usually these will be races 3, 4, 5 and 6.
  8. Jackpot
    In this scenario you need to guess the winners of the six relevant races. The long odds make the potential prize here very attractive.
