Types of betting

Usually when betting on a horse hace, you will find the following betting types:

 
To Win - the bet will be placed on a horse to win the bet365 Gold Cup Race. The bet will be lost if the horse does not win the race.
Each Way -This bet is placed for a horse to come in any of the top 4 places in the bet365 Gold Cup Race. This bet actually is formed of 2 bets. One bet is placed on the horse to win the race, and the full odds apply to this part, and another bet is placed on the horse to come in one of the top places and only a quarter of the odds apply this part of the bet. One Each Way bet cost therefore 2, with 1 being placed on the horse to win, and 1 placed on the horse to come in the first 4 places. The bet will be lost if the horse does not come in the 4 top places of the race.

 

Placing a bet

To place a bet, simply locate the horse you want to bet on from the bookmaker's offer, place your stake (usually is minimum £2), and select which bet you are placing, "to win" or "each way"

 

The winnings

To Win bet - If the horse you put money on wins, the stake is multiplied by the odds to calculate your winnings and is payd along with the original betting stake. For example if a £10 bet is placed in a horse with odds of 10-1, the £10 stake is multiplied by 10 (giving 100) and is paid with the original betting £10 stake, for a total of £110, if the horse wins.
Each Way bet - If the horse wins, the first part of the betting stake is multiplied by the odds and paid with the original stake and the other half of the betting stake is multiplied by a quarter of the odds and paid aling with the original stake. For example a £5 stake on an Each Way bet (£10 betting stake) is placed on a horse at odds of 10-1, the original £5 stake is multiplied by 10 (giving £50) and returned with the original bet of £5 for a total of £55. The other £5 of the bet, is multiplied by a quarter of the odds - 2.5, giving a total of £12.5, and paid with the original bet for a total of 17.5. Therefore if the horse wins, the total winning will be £55+£17.5=£72.5
If the horse fails to win the race, but comes in the first 4, the first part of the bet is lost and the second part is multiplied by a quarter of the odds and paid with the original part of the betting stake. For example, a £5 bet (£10 bet stake) placed on a horse at 10-1 odds, the original £5 stake is lost. The other £5 of the bet is multiplied by a quarter of the odds - 2.5, and paid with the original £5 stake, for a total of £17.5.
If you win a bet on a horse, the ammount you win, will be automatically credited to your betting account. You can then use the money to place future bets, or ou can widthraw the money from your betting account (subject to terms and conditions) and the money will be credited to your credit or debit card.
