All to Come
This is your chance to win big for a small amount. The bet enables Win or Place bets on horses in different races at the SAME race meeting to be combined into one accumulative bet.
Choose a horse, or horses, to finish FIRST or SECOND in each of the 6 races that comprise the BiPot (Legs 1 to 6).
You can win the bet many times.
You choose one horse in each of Legs 1 to 4 and two horses in each of Legs 5, 6 and 7. If all choices finish in the first 2, payout is won eight times (1x1x1x1x2x2x2 = 8).
Choose the winners of the 2 consecutive races that comprise the Double (the first of the 2 races in a Double is termed Leg 1; the second is Leg 2).
A Double can be taken on all consecutive races
i.e. Races 1 & 2; 2 & 3; 3 & 4 etc.
Combines a Win and Place bet. You collect the Win and Place payouts if the horse bet on finishes FIRST. You get the Place payout if the horse finishes SECOND or THIRD (the number of PLACE payouts varies according to the number of runners, see above). The same amount is always bet for the Win and the Place.
Bet on the horses to finish FIRST and SECOND in the exact order. Bet 3 different ways:
|Single:||Choose 1 horse for FIRST and 1 horse for SECOND.|
|Perm:||Choose any number of horses for FIRST and for SECOND.|
|Box:||Choose 2 or more horses. You collect if the horses chosen include the FIRST and SECOND finishers.|
