How to Play
When you open the game, in the top right of the screen you can see the track conditions. On the left hand side, you will see the six horses due to race in the next race. Above that, you have the choice of different games and bet types, Winner, Exacta, Place, Show and Pick IV-V.
If you click on an individual horse, it will show you information such as the age and type of horse, its overall rating, recent results, and jockey information. There is even a quote from the jockey about the condition of the horse. You can open up two horse cards simultaneously to compare information.
The Winner game is a bet on which horse will come first. You will see the odds in the first column, you can enter your bet amount in the second and the possible win is shown in the third. It is possible to place multiple bets of different amounts simultaneously.
The Exacta game is a bet on the two horses that finish first and second. Simply select the two horses and set which position you think they will finish. The payout, which is based upon the respective horses’ odds, is displayed underneath the bet amount.
The Place game is a bet on a horse finishing first or second. Once again, you are shown the payout of each horse and your possible win and you can bet on numerous horses simultaneously.
The Show game is the same as the Place except that it is a bet on a horse finishing first, second or third.
The Pick IV-V game allows you to bet on four or five horses and predict where they will finish in the race. The payout is calculated according to the respective horses’ odds and your possible win is displayed.
When you are happy with all your bets just click on ‘Confirm’ in the bottom right corner, you will then be shown a summary of your bets and when you are ready to start the race click on ‘Race’. The action will then unfold on screen and you can watch the horses come in to see how you have done.
