Anyone wanting to put down a bet at the racecourse has three options as to where they can bet – bookies on the rails located between the racetrack and the main stand, the Tote kiosk inside the main building and the betting shops on the course. Rail bookies opens bets approximately 20 minutes before a race starts while betting shops and Tote kiosks allow bets to be placed anytime throughout the day a scheduled race is to occur.
The differences between the three betting options will significantly influence the bettor’s strategy. In the case the bettor may have an inkling that the horse in which they are interested could be backed to the short price to win, the bettor may back their race tip earlier in the day. So instead of visiting the rails bookie, go to the on-course shop or Tote kiosk, both of which are open much earlier.
Because people have other tasks in which to attend, such as social engagements, work or family obligations, it is not always possible to put down a bet, whenever the mood strikes which can really sting when finding out a bet that could not be placed was a winner. However, bettors can send their bet to their online betting account by using a phone as long as the bettor registers an account before the day first using this betting method.
In addition, on-course shops and Tote kiosks allow Jackpot, Placepot and other betting variations to be placed. These types of bets require predicting the winners of the card’s race series all day. This lets bettors turn a large profit for a small expense.
Those who prefer a simple betting strategy should only place a single bet at a time before the beginning of each race. Bookmakers are the best option in this scenario. Of course, it is recommended to make a decision regarding your choice and stake before meeting the bookie. Doing so prevents making a unwise decision due to feeling rushed. However, bookmakers do not accept bets of large values.
Even though these wagering tips appear simple, it is not uncommon for first-time bettors to become confused as to their best betting option. Anyone who puts these tips to the test will find their bet planning easier.
