GoTo Entertainment has a great horse book offering 100 horse racing tracks to choose from, so have fun. Remember when you make your wagers to do so at least a minute before post to make sure you don't get shut out. You can now make horse wagers by phone, by internet or by mobile phone or PDA.
Bet Type Payouts
Win – Your horse must finish 1 st in that race.
Place – Your horse must finish 1 st or 2 nd in that race.
Show – Your horse must finish 1 st , 2 nd or 3 rd in that race.
Betting a horse across the board means you are betting that horse to win, place and show. If you bet $20 across the board on a horse, you would have $20 to win, place and show. That is a total of $60 cost.
Quinella – This is a bet picking the 2 horses that finish first and second. It doesn't matter which one wins and places as long as you have the 2 horses that came in 1-2.
Exacta – This bet is like a quinella, but you have to pick the exact order of the 2 horses that come in first or second. On the up side, it always pays more than a quinella.
Trifecta – This is like an exacta, but you must pick 3 in a row in the correct order. This is, of course, harder than the exacta and the payoffs show how hard it is with healthy rewards.
Superfecta – This even gets harder. You have to pick 4 in a row with the exact order, so if you hit this one you're really getting paid
Daily Double – You have to pick the winners in 2 races, so it's kind of like a 2 team parlay.
When betting some of these exotics, you can make wagers betting boxes or you can key horses for some wagers. For example, you could bet a 3 team box for an exacta and it would cost $12. If you would box the 1, 2 and 3 for an exacta, you would win if it came in 1-2, 1-3, 2-1, 2-3, 3-1 or 3-2. For a $2 box, that would cost you $12 because you have 6 combinations that you are betting.
You can also key a horse for a trifecta for example. If you said $1 trifecta key with the #1 horse keyed to the 2,3 and 4, you would have a 1-2-3, 1-2-4, 1-3-2, 1-3-4, 1-4-2 and 1-4-3 for trifectas. This would cost you $6 for a $1 trifecta because you have 6 total combinations.
Pick 3, 4 or 6 – These are the hardest bets on the board of course getting harder with more teams. This is picking the winners in this many races in a row which many times gets up to 6 figures. When there is no winning tickets, part of the pool will be distributed to the players closest to being correct with the rest of the pool carrying over to the next day.
Any horse tickets past posted or entered in the system after post time will be graded no action by GoTo Entertainment's management.
