HOW TO PLAY

Completing a Racetrax® playslip is easy. Just use a pencil or blue or black ink, and make your marks heavy and horizontal.

STEP 1 – SELECT A BET TYPE

Use Section 1 of your playslip to mark which Bet Type you wish to play. There are 12 horses in every race. Seven Bet Types are available. Select only one Bet Type.

WIN: Select at least one horse to finish in 1st place.

(Minimum Cost Per Ticket = $1)

SHOW: Select at least one horse to finish in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place.

(Minimum Cost Per Ticket = $1)

WIN/SHOW: A WIN/SHOW is a combined WIN and SHOW bet on one ticket. One horse equals two bets.

(Minimum Cost Per Ticket = $2)

  • If your horse finishes 1st, you win the WIN and the SHOW prizes.
  • If your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd, you win the SHOW prize only.


QUINELLA:
Select two or more horses to finish in 1st and 2nd place, in ANY order.

(Minimum Cost Per Ticket = $1)

TRIFECTA: Select the three horses that will finish in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, in EXACT order.

(Minimum Cost Per Ticket = $1)

TRIFECTA BOX: Select at least three horses that will finish in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, in ANY order. The number of wagers in a Trifecta Box for one Race is equal to the number of all possible combination’s based on the total number of horses selected. Three horses equal six bets.

(Minimum Cost Per Ticket = $6)

TRIFECTA WHEEL: Select four or more horses (at least one in each box) to finish in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in EXACT order. Quick Pick is not available for the Trifecta Wheel bet type. If more than four horses are selected, the cost for one race will be determined by the total number of all possible combinations.

(Minimum Cost Per Ticket = $2)

STEP 2 – SELECT YOUR HORSE(S):

Use section 2 of your playslip to select your horses OR mark the Quick Pick box if you want your horses selected for you. Quick Pick is NOT available for the Trifecta Wheel bet.

WIN, SHOW or WIN/SHOW Bet: Select at least one horse in the 1st box.

QUINELLA Bet: Select at least two horses in the 1st box.

TRIFECTA Bet: Select three different individual horses, one in each of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd boxes.

TRIFECTA BOX Bet: Select at least three horses in the 1st box.

TRIFECTA WHEEL Bet: Select four or more horses, at least one in each of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd boxes.

STEP 3 – SELECT YOUR BET AMOUINT:

Use Section three of your playslip to select the amount you wish to bet per race ($1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $10 or $20). Examples are based on the minimum bet cost for one race. The total cost of your ticket will equal:

WIN or SHOW = [Bet Amount] x [Number of Races] x [Number of Horses Selected]

WIN/SHOW = [Bet Amount] x [Number of Races] x [Number of Horses Selected] x [2]

QUINELLA = [Bet Amount] x [Number of Races] (If more than two horses are selected, each additional horse will increase the cost by $1 for each set of possible Quinella finishes. For example, if the one and two horses are selected, the sets would be 1-2, 2-1, and the minimum cost would be $1. If horses one, two and three are selected, the sets would be 1-2, 2-1; 1-3, 3-1; 2-3, 3-2, so the minimum cost would be $3—$1 for each of the three sets.)

TRIFECTA = [Bet Amount] x [Number of Races]

TRIFECTA BOX = [Bet Amount] x [Number of Races] x [Number of Possible Bet Combinations] (six (6) is the number of bets in a Trifecta Box if only three horses are selected. If more than three horses are selected, the cost will increase by $1 for each additional possible combination. For example, if four horses are selected, there are 24 possible combinations for a cost of $24.)

TRIFECTA WHEEL = [Bet Amount] x [Number of Races] x [Number of Possible Bet Combinations] (For example, if the one and two horses are selected in Box 1, the three horse in Box 2 and the four horse in Box 3, there are two possible combinations, 1-3-4 and 2-3-4. The cost, based on a $1 bet, would be $2.)

STEP 4 – SELECT NUMBER OF RACES

In Section 4, select the number of consecutive races you wish to play (one, two, three, four, five, ten or 20).

STEP 5 – DO YOU WANT TO PLAY RACETRAX® BONUS?

If you would like to play Racetrax® Bonus, select “Yes” on your playslip for the Racetrax® Bonus option and have the chance to multiply your winnings on every race. You must play Racetrax® if you want to play Racetrax® Bonus. Selecting “Yes” will double the cost of your ticket. If you do not wish to play Racetrax® Bonus, then select “No.”

HOW TO PLAY RACETRAX BONUS

What is Racetrax® Bonus? It is a feature of Racetrax® that gives you a chance to increase your Racetrax® winnings by up to ten times the original amount. Simply mark the “Yes” box for Racetrax® Bonus on your Racetrax® playslip. Determining your Racetrax® Bonus wager is easy. It’s the same amount that you wagered on Racetrax®. For instance, if you wager $2 on Racetrax®, then your Racetrax® Bonus wager is an additional $2, for a total ticket cost of $4.

Racetrax® Bonus draws first, with a wheel that spins and stops to reveal which multiplier, if any, applies to the next Racetrax® race. Possible multipliers are three, four, five and ten. Then the race takes place. If your ticket is a winner for that Racetrax® race, and you also played Racetrax® Bonus, then multiply the amount you won by the Racetrax® Bonus multiplier. The result is how much money you’ll actually collect. For example, if you win $7 on Racetrax®, and the multiplier for that race is three, then you collect $21. If the multiplier is four, you collect $28, and so on.

Thanks to Racetrax® Bonus, you can win up to $3,150,000 on Racetrax® when the Racetrax® Bonus option is selected and a multiplier occurs!
