Shop Rules - Settlement Rules

  • In any horse, greyhound or virtual race of fewer than 5 starters,each-way bets will be taken as ‘all-to-win’ given that there are no places available.
  • Each-way accumulative bets are settled win-to-win and place-to-place.
  • Except in specific Place-Only markets, place bets are not accepted unless at least an equal amount is invested to win. Where there is excess place money over win money in each-way bets, then that part of the bet will be void, win or lose.
  • For Forecast bets, there must be a minimum of three runners in the race. Otherwise the Forecast selected will be void. Forecast bets will be settled from the returns declared by the Computer Straight Forecast or BAGS/BEGS F/C.
  • Tricasts will be settled in accordance with the official computerized return, or by a calculated method as may be advertised or displayed in our shops from time to time on major events.
  • Where a favourite has been specified in Tote returns bet and there are joint favourites, the runner with the lowest numerical race card number will be the selection.
  • Where a winning Jackpot bet is placed at Tote returns and the Jackpot is not won, bets will be settled as SP win accumulators.
  • Where a winning Placepot (or Quadpot) bet is placed at Tote returns and the Placepot (or Quadpot) is not won, bets will be settled as SP place accumulators.

    - A €1 SP win accumulator plus a 25% bonus if all six selections win.
    - The place dividend as declared in the Scoop 6.
