Betting Rules – Racing

Updated 17 March 202


1. General


1.1. Any Capitalised terms not otherwise defined within these Betting Rules – Racing adopt the defined terms presented in the Betting Rules - General & Product - https://help.playup.com.au/support/solutions/articles/43000643100-betting-rules-general-product

1.2. Where there are eight (8) or more runners in a race, a Place dividend shall be paid on first, second and third places. 

1.3. Where there are seven (7), six (6) or five (5) runners in a race, a Fixed Odds Place dividend shall be paid on first and second places only. When You have bet on a Tote based product, Place bets will pay down to however many placings the major Australian TABs determine as appropriate for that bet type. Major Australian TABs shall be defined as the Victorian TAB (STAB), the NSW TAB, the Queensland TAB (UTAB). 

1.4. Where there are less than five (5) runners in a race, all bets shall be on a 'Win Only' basis. If a late scratching of a runner or runners reduces the field below five (5) runners, all fixed odds place bets will be paid out with deductions applied.

1.5. If a runner is scratched, all bets placed, after the declaration of the final field, will be refunded on that runner (provided the bet wasn't placed prior to the barrier draw on an 'All-In' basis.). All other runners will be subject to a deduction, applicable to the face value of winning bets where the bet was placed at a fixed price, for either: Win, Each Way, or Place Only (refer Section 8 - Schedule of Deductions) 

1.6. We may cancel bets where You have manipulated the pool, subject to adjudication by the relevant state totalisator operator(s) or Northern Territory Racing Commission. 

1.7. We may place a limit on the payout (final odds) where there is reasonable suspicion of pool manipulation having occurred (e.g. Payout no greater than 100% higher than the next best Australian tote). 

1.8. If a tote pool goes down either online or via the telephone and the pools are distorted, then We reserve the right to omit these dividends when paying out. For example, if the NSW TAB pool is down, the best of UTAB and STAB will be paid for Best Tote Products. For Middle Tote Products, the dividend will be deemed to be the average of the two declared dividends. 

1.9. In the event that one of the Major Australian TABs for promotional reasons or otherwise, returns elevated dividends due to foregoing their normal take-out margin, We reserve the right to declare Best Tote dividends at the higher of the other two Australian Totes. 

1.10. If a meeting is abandoned or postponed to another date, single bets are void and bets will be refunded. Affected MultiBets will be recalculated excluding that leg.

1.11. In relation to Fixed Odds racing events where betting is opened prior to the declaration of the final field, if the event is postponed and not held within seven (7) days or less of the day on which the event was originally scheduled to commence, the event shall be treated as abandoned and all investments on runners that remain acceptors at the expiry of the seven (7) days will be refunded.

1.12. Regardless of whether a 'Futures event (‘All-In’ betting)' has been postponed or transferred from the original date, all bets stand until the completion of the event. 

1.13. If no bet type is specified, the default bet type will be a Win Only Bet at the applicable Tote Based product. 

1.14. At Our discretion, Tote pools of under $500 may be disregarded in the calculation of Best Tote and Middle Tote dividends. 

1.15. We reserve the right to restrict the maximum dividend paid out for tote Win and tote Place bets to $201. 

1.16. We reserve the right to restrict the return on any tote derivative bet to the size of the tote pool. 

1.17. On any Best Tote Market, where a individual tote dividend is more than 50% higher than the other two totes, We reserve the right at Our sole discretion, to pay the dividend on average of our Fixed Odds and Middle Tote. 

1.17. Depending on the status of race meetings, differing products will be available daily as shown on Our Website and Our App.

6.4. When taking Flexi Bets on Racing Exotics the percentage is calculated by the total stake divided by the number of combinations (permutations). When scratchings occur, the number of invalid combinations (combinations which include scratched runners) multiplied by the percentage for each calculation is refunded.
