Pari Mutuel Wagering

Pari-Mutuel Wagering simply means “betting among ourselves.” This ensures that you will never “bet against the track”, you only bet against other players. This form of wagering provides better odds of wagering and better odds of winning! The majority of the money wagered goes right back into the hands of the bettors. The number of people who bet on the same greyhound determines the odds, and therefore, the payoff.

When can I bet?
You may bet on any race in the current program 1/2 hour prior to post time.

How to place a bet
Tell any mutuel clerk:

  • Which Track
  • Amount of Bet
  • Type of Bet
  • Number of Horse
  • Example: “Belmont- $2 to Win on Number 4″
