How do I place a Win / Place or Each Way bet?

What is a Win / Place or Each Way bet?

A Win bet is where you select a runner to finish first in a race.

A Place bet is where you select a runner to place either first, second or third in a race.

An Each Way bet is where you set an investment for a runner to both win or place in a race.

A Win bet is available on every race, and a Place bet is available subject to the number of starters in a race:

  • Where there are eight or more starts (or at least seven if the field has been reduced by a Late Scratching) then three place dividends are paid.
  • If there are five, six or seven starts (or four starters if the field has been reduced by a Late Scratching), then there will be No Third Dividend (NTD).
  • If there are four or less starters in a race, then there is No Place Pool (NPP) and any Place investments will be refunded.

The minimum bet for Win or Place bet is $1.
