Betting online horse racing can be fun and easy. There are Many Different wagers offered each race, but these are the three most basic:
The first is a”triumph” bet. Betting a horse to win is just as fun as it seems — the horse must win the race order for you to win the bet.
Next, is a”place” bet. This really is betting on a horse to finish in the top two. You win the wager if your horse finishes first or second.
Betting a horse to”series” means selecting a horse who you think will finish in the top . You win the bet if your horse finishes first, second, or thirdparty. Due to the difficulty of a win bet, it will yield the maximum payoff of those three wagers. A series bet will yield the lowest payoff but offers the greatest chance of winning.
The minimum bet for a win, place or show wager is just $2.
If you have mastered the art of win, place and show wagers, try out an exacta. An exacta is more challenging than win, place and show wagers, but yields a higher payout. You bet an exacta by selecting a minimum two horses to finish first and second. These horses must finish first and second, so, for one to win the wager.
If choosing two horses order sounds too difficult, you can”box” your wager. A boxed bet will win if your horses complete 1st and 2nd, in any order, making it more likely that you win.
The minimum wager for an exacta or exacta box bet is only $2.
If you’ve mastered the art of win, place and show wagers, try out a trifecta. A trifecta is more difficult than win, place and show wagers, in addition to exacta wagers, so it yields a higher payout than any of those stakes.
You gamble a trifecta by selecting a minimum three horses to finish first, second, and third. These horses must finish first, second, and third, in that specific order, for one to win the wager.
If choosing three horses in order seems too hard you can”box” your bet. A boxed trifecta bet will win if your horses finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, in any order, making it more likely to win.
The minimum wager for a trifecta bet is only 50 cents and you can bet a trifecta box for as little as $3.
