Exotic Bet types are more riskier than the usual win or place
bet types but offer punters greater returns as a result. Due to the larger returns
that punters can expect from winning exotic bets they typically risk less money
to receive a substantial return. Australian bookmakers are continually introducing
new exotic bet types. Some of these are special offers which are advertised
as part of a racing carnival or special sports event. In addition to these there
are a significant number of exotic bet types which punters have available to
them at all times.
Punters win when they select two of the top three finishing horses or greyhounds
in a race. A win is awarded regardless of where the two selections finish in
the top three places.
Two races are nominated typically on the one race program. Punters have to
select the winner in each of the two races selected.
The punter must make two selections identifying the runner they think will
win the race and the runner that runs second. If they predict the winner and
runner-up in order, they win.
To win, a punter must select the first four place getters in a race in the
Punters make multiple selections across multiple races or sports events using
a specific bet type (e.g. win, place or each-way). Winnings from a bet are then
placed on the second selection and so on for each leg of the multibet. If each
bet in each event wins the punter receives the total return from the final bet.
Quadrella or Quaddie
Four races are nominated for a quaddie. The punter has to select the winner
in each of the four races to win.
Punters have to find the winner of two consecutive races on a race program
Punters must select the top three place getters in the correct order to win
a Trifecta. The punter can choose to 'box' the Trifecta, in which case they
receive all six combinations with their three selections. To win a box Trifecta
the horses only need to finish in the top three places in any order.
