Greyhound Racing Bet Types
- Straight Bet or Single or Win Bet
The first dog to cross the finish line wins. You collect only if your selection finishes first.
The second dog to cross the finish line places. You collect only if your selection finishes first or second.
The third dog to cross the finish line shows. You collect only if your selection finishes first, second or third.
- Across The Board
You make three individual bets on one dog to Win, Place, and Show. If your selection wins, you collect on all three bets. If your selection runs second, you collect on Place and Show bets. If your selection runs third, you collect the Show bet. Your total wager will be three times the individual bet.
- Quinella or Reverse Forecast
The first two dogs to cross the finish line in any order.
- Perfecta or Exacta or Straight Forecast
The first two dogs to cross the finish line in EXACT order.
- Trifecta or Tricast or Treble Forecast
The dogs finishing first, second and third place in EXACT ORDER.
The first four dogs in their EXACT ORDER of finish.
- Twin Trifecta
A multiple pool bet. Two trifecta selections in two races. You select the winning Trifecta combination in one race and exchange that ticket for a second Trifecta in the following race. One-half of the net Twin Trifecta pool will be paid equally to winners of the first half when those tickets are presented to be exchanged. The remaining half of the pool, along with any carry over will be to winners of the second half. If no one selects the second half correctly, the pool is carried over to the next racing performance.
Similar to the Twin Trifecta. You select the winning Trifecta combination in one race and exchange that ticket for a Superfecta in the following race.
- Titanic Tri-Super
This operates the same as the Tri-Super, except you must correctly select the Trifecta combination in the 5th Race and the Superfecta in the 7th Race.
- Daily Double
Similar to an accumulator you select the winners of the first and second races on that day. You must place your bet before the start of the first race.
Pick six winners in six races to share in a Jackpot prize. The rules and prizes will vary from race track to race track.
- Parlay or Accumulator
A multiple bet. A kind of 'let-it-ride' bet. Making simultaneous selections on two or more races with the intent of pressing the winnings of the first win on the bet of the following race selected, and so on. All the selections made must win for you to win the parlay. If a race is a tie, postponed or cancelled, your parlay is automatically reduced by one selection; a double parlay becomes a straight bet, a triple parlay becomes a double. A parlay bet can yield huge dividends if won.
- Pick 3
Select the winner of three consecutive races.
- Pick 6
Select the winner of six consecutive races.
Note: Different countries and different race tracks may have different rules, use different terms for the types of bets.
