Place: The second dog to cross the finish line PLACES. You collect if the dog you chose to PLACE comes in second or first. Minimum wager is $2.00.
Show: The third dog to cross the finish line SHOWS. You collect if the dog you chose to SHOW comes in third, second, or first. Minimum wager is $2.00.
Across The Board: Here, 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. The minimum wager is $2.00 but remember that your total cost will be three times your minimum amount. For example, a $2.00 ‘Across the Board’ bet would cost $6.00.
When you bet a Quiniela, you are wagering the two dogs you select will cross the finish line in either order.
Example: If you think #5 and #8 are going to run first and second, then you purchase a 5-8 Quiniela ticket. If #5 wins, and #8 runs second, or if #8 wins and #5 runs second, you win the Quiniela. Minimum wager is $2.00.
Quiniela Box: You can also combine more than two dogs and ‘box them in’ so that all combinations of those numbers are covered.
Wheeling The Quiniela: You can also ‘wheel’ a favorite dog, so that it is combined with all the other dogs. Based on the $2.00 value, the total cost of a wheel is $14.00. For example, if you wheel #3 with ALL the other dogs in the same race and #3 comes in first or second, you win because you have ALL other combinations covered.
When you bet a Perfecta, you are wagering the two dogs you select will finish first and second in exact order. Example: It you think #6 will finish first and #3 will finish second, you purchase a 6-3 Perfecta ticket. If #6 wins and #3 runs second, you win. Minimum wager is $2.00.
Perfecta Box: As with the Quiniela box, you are combining your selections and boxing them in so that all combinations of those numbers are covered.
Wheeling The Perfecta: You key a dog to finish the race in either first or second place with all others in the race. Example: If you bet a $2.00 Perfecta wheel 4-ALL, you win if the 4 crosses the finish line first, regardless of which dog finishes second.
A trifecta is played by picking the first three dogs to finish in the exact order.
Example: If you ask for a $2.00 trifecta 2-4-8, you would collect if the race finished with #2 to win, #4 to run second, and #8 to run third. Minimum wager is $2.00.
Boxing The Trifecta: To improve your chances, boxes can be purchased for a cost of $1.00 per combination. Example: A $1.00 trifecta box on numbers 2,3, and 4 covers all six possible combinations of those numbers for a total cost of $6.00. (All $1.00 trifecta boxes pay half of the posted $2.00 straight trifecta price)
Wheeling The Trifecta: Another method for improving your chances of winning the trifecta is the trifecta wheel. Although the key dog is usually played in the first or win position, you can also play the key dog in the second or third positions. Minimum wager is $1.00, however, the minimum cost of a trifecta wheel is $2.00.
The straight superfecta is played by picking the first four greyhounds to finish in their exact order. For example, If you ask for a $2.00 straight superfecta 1-3-4-8, you would collect if the race finished exactly 1-3-4-8 with the #1 to win, #3 to run second, #4 to finish third, and #8 to finish fourth. Minimum wager is $2.00.
Boxing The Superfecta: You can also box four numbers in the superfecta for only $24.00. For example, if you box the 5,6,7 and 8 dogs, you will win if any combination of those four dogs finishes in the top four positions.
Wheeling The Superfecta: You can also play the superfecta with $1.00 key wheels. You may choose a key dog to finish first, and then play that key dog/horse with three others to come in second, third, and fourth. For example, if you bet a $1.00 superfecta wheel with the 1 keyed over the 3,4,8, you would collect if the #l came in first, and the 3,4, and 8 dogs/horses came in second, third and fourth, in any order. Although the key dog is usually played in the first or win position, you can also play the key dog in the second, third or forth positions.
This is a bet involving two consecutive races. You win by picking the winner of the first race and the winner of the second race.
The twin-tri can be played for as little as $2.00 and all you have to do is select, in order, the first three dogs to cross the finish line in the first half. If your selections are correct in the first half, you collect your payoff and exchange your ticket for a FREE second half selection. Then sit back and wait for your second half trifecta to cross the line in the order you’ve selected. If no one wins both halves of the twin-tri, a carryover jackpot is started and continues to grow until someone wins!
