WIN: You collect only if the dog/horse you played finishes first..

PLACE: You collect if your dog/horse finishes first or second.

SHOW: You collect if your dog/horse finishes first, second or third.

ACROSS THE BOARD: You collect if your dog/horse finishes first, second, or third place.

DAILY DOUBLE: You select the dogs/horses you think will win the first and second races. Daily Double tickets must be purchased prior to the running of the first race.

QUINELLA: You select two dogs/horses that must finish first and second together regardless of order. A popular quinella bet is the “Quinella Box” where you select three or more dogs. If two of them finish first and second (regardless of order) you win.

TRIFECTA: This bet involves picking three dogs/horses in their exact order to finish first, second, and third. This bet is often referred to as the “straight trifecta.” Example: If you bet a trifecta 1-4-7, the 1 must finish first, the 4 second and the 7 third in order for you to collect on this ticket.

TRIFECTA BOX: You select three or more dogs you think will finish in the trifecta. A boxed bet covers every combination of your dogs.

TRIFECTA KEY: You select a “key” dog/horse and couple it with two or more dogs in a specified position. It must finish where you specify it will, with the others finishing in any order. Example: 1 to win with the 2- 4-7. The 1 must win, the others finishing second and third in any order. You may put your key dog/horse in second or third position also.

TRIFECTA WHEEL: Bet on one greyhound to finish first, second or third, then wheel your selection with every combination. A bet on a $1 Trifecta Wheel is $42 and is equal to having 42 combinations in one ticket(Based on 8 entries in the race).

SUPERFECTA: You select four dogs to finish in exact order. This bet may also be made as a box or wheel just as the trifecta bet. Example: A superfecta 1-2-4-7 must finish in that order to collect. Sometimes the races end in what is known as an "all" situation. In this case, no one picked the 4th place dog, so anyone who bet the 1-2-4-and any number for the fourth position shares the pot.

TWIN TRIFECTA: The Twin Trifecta is divided into two halves. For example, a track may have their Twin Trifecta in races 6 and 8. Pick the trifecta in the 6th race. If you’re a winner, you’ll receive a share of the first half payoff and a free exchange for the 8th race. Take your winning first half (6th race) tickets to any window prior to the 8th race. Select the trifecta for the 8th race. If your 8th race trifecta also wins, you win the jackpot. It is possible for more than one winner. If there is no winner in the 8th race, the betting pool is carried over until someone wins or the host track forces out the payout.

PENTAFECTA/SUPER HI-5:
You select five dogs to finish in exact order. This bet may also be made as a box or wheel just as the trifecta bet. Example: A pentafecta 1-2-4-7-3 must finish in that order to collect. Sometimes the races end in what is known as an "all" situation. In this case, no one picked the correct combination. If there is no winner, the betting pool is carried over until someone wins or the host track forces out the payout.

PICK 3:
You select the winning dog/horse in 3 consecutive races. This bet may be made as a straight bet or as a wheel just as the trifecta bet. Example: A Pick 3 Wheel 1 with the 2- 4-7 with the 4-5-7-9. The 1 must win the first race, the 2, 4, or 7 must win the second race, and the 4, 5, 7, or 9 must win the third race.

TRI-SUPER:
The Tri-Super is divided into two halves. For example, a track may have their Tri-Super in races 6 and 8. Pick the trifecta in the 6th race. If you’re a winner, you’ll receive a share of the first half payoff and a free exchange for the 8th race. Take your winning first half (6th race) tickets to any window prior to the 8th race. Select the Tri-Super for the 8th race. If your 8th race superfecta also wins, you win the jackpot. It is possible for more than one winner. If there is no winner in the 8th race, the betting pool is carried over until someone wins or the host track forces out the payout.
