What are Deductions?

What are Deductions?

Why are deductions applied?

When a runner is scratched from the final field of a race, this alters the market and it is a requirement for that market to be re-framed. Deductions are made by racing stewards and are applied as a deduction (of cents in the dollar) to the face value of the ticket.

What is a late scratching?

William Hill will apply a deduction for runners that are scratched prior to the opening of the official on course market.  Post this point, official deductions (as declared by Stewards) will apply for any late scratchings.

Which bets are subject to deductions?

All fixed odds racing (Thoroughbreds, Harness and Greyhounds) bets may be subject to deductions. Any scratchings that occur after the declaration of the final field are classed as late scratchings.

What is the Final Field?

The Final Field refers to the final list of race acceptors as advised by the controlling Race Club. All bets struck prior to the Final Field being declared are accepted on an ALL-IN basis (i.e. no refunds for non-runners and no deductions from any other runner.) Bets struck after the final field is declared are eligible for a full refund on scratched horses or greyhounds and deductions will apply to remaining runners.

How much will be deducted from my bet?

The amount of the deduction varies based on a number of factors including, the size of the field, the price of the scratched horse and what time the horse was scratched.

Example: You place a $10 Fixed Odds Win bet on a horse at $4.00. The $2 favourite was a late scratching which led to a deduction of 42c per dollar. To calculate the payout:

  1. $10 stake x $4.00 odds = $40 face value of ticket (this is what you would have been paid if there were no deductions)
  2. $40 face value of the ticket x 42c deductions per dollar = $16.80 deducted amount
  3. $40 face value of ticket – $16.80 deducted amount = $23.20 actual payout.

What Racing bet types are available?

What Racing bet types are available?

Whether you are betting on thoroughbred, greyhound or harness racing there are a number of different bet types to get involved:

 

Betting Without

Selecting ‘Betting Without’ gives you a fixed win price on an event ‘without’ a nominated selection. William Hill will offer ‘Betting Without’ markets on selected Horse Racing, Greyhounds and Harness events.

This bet type can be found just above the runners within the racecard. Upon clicking on the price under the ‘Betting W/Out’ column your selection will be added to the bet slip.


Race Insurance

William Hill will offer Insurance (3 placings) markets on selected Horse Racing, Greyhounds and Harness events. If your selection runs second or third as declared by officiating stewards all fixed win wagers will be refunded on this market. If the runner wins you get paid as per the value of your bet receipt.

This Bet type can be found just above the runners within the racecard. Upon clicking on the price under the Insurance column your selection will be added to the bet slip.


Win Only

A Win Only bet is when a bet is placed on the runner to come in First place only in an event – that is, there is no payment for coming Second or Third.

A Win only is also known as ‘straight out’ betting.


Place Only

A Place Only bet is a bet placed on a runner to place First, Second or Third, subject to field size. If the field size is:

  • Eight or more runners, clients will receive a payout for First, Second and Third;
  • Five to Seven runners, clients will receive a payout for First and Second only;
  • Less than Five runners, clients will receive a payout for First place only.


Fixed Odds

Win/Place Fixed Odds refers to the Fixed Price quoted by William Hill of a specific runner prior to placing a wager. These odds are fixed at the time of placing the wager. All Fixed Win/Place wagers are subject to the Field Size Rule (Rule 73). If a Fixed Price wager is struck once the “Final Field” is declared, such wagers are subject to scratching and deductions.


Best Tote+

Best Tote+ is available on selected Australian Thoroughbred meetings. When placing a Best Tote+ Win only wager on a thoroughbred you will receive the best dividend declared by the three Australian Totes. For Place only and Place portion of EW wagers, Best Tote+ will provide the best dividend declared by the three Australian Totes for the Win and the Mid Tote dividend for the Place portion.


Mid Tote

Mid Tote pays the Australian Tote with the second highest official Win dividend on Harness, Greyhound, Australian Country and International thoroughbred meetings covered by the 3 Totes.


Starting Price

Starting Price (SP) is the official and final bookmakers’ price as transmitted by the Australian Pricing Network up until the advertised start time of the race.

If a Win or a Win/Place wager is placed as the Starting Price, the Win portion will be paid at a rate equal to the official on-course Bookmakers’ starting price or, where no SP is provided by the Australian Pricing Network prior to the advertised start time of the race, at the William Hill closing Fixed Odds Win price.


Best Fluctuation

Best Fluctuation is available on most metropolitan meetings. Best Fluctuation wagers can be placed up to 30 minutes prior to the advertised start time of each race and pays the best of the official on-course Bookmakers’ fluctuations. William Hill’s own fixed odds prices are not included in the Best Fluctuation product.


Racing Exotics

Exacta: An Exacta requires that the first two (2) place getters are nominated in order. In the event of a dead heat, there will be as many dividends as there are correct ordered combinations as declared by customer selected National TAB.

Standard Quinella: A Standard Quinella, is when you select two runners to place First and Second in any order for the wager to be successful.

Box Quinella: A Box Quinella allows you to choose more than two selections. You can choose as many runners as you like from the same race, however two of the selections must place First or Second in any order for your wager to be successful.

Standout Quinella: When placing a Standout Quinella wager, you can choose as many runners as you like from the same race, however you must nominate the runner you think will place First or Second. For your Standout Quinella wager to be successful, one of your other selections must finish either First or Second to your nominated selection.

Trifecta: A Trifecta requires nominating the first three (3) place getters i.e. First, Second and Third in order. In the event of a dead heat, there will be as many dividends as there are correct ordered combinations as declared by the Mid Tote (the second highest paying National TAB) or the customer’s selected National TAB.

First Four: A First Four requires nominating the first four (4) place getters i.e. First, Second, Third and Fourth in correct order. In the event of a dead heat, there will be as many dividends as there are correct ordered combinations as declared by the Mid Tote (the second highest paying National TAB) or the customer’s selected National TAB.


Racing Multiples

Daily Double: A Daily Double bet requires you to nominate the winners of two races specified by TAB Vic.

Extra Double or Treble: An Extra Double or Treble bet requires you to nominate the winners of races specified by TattsBet.

Feature Doubles: Feature Doubles are available on selected feature racing markets and offers Fixed Odds betting on Feature Double combinations. Feature Doubles bets are to be considered “All In” when one or both of individual feature markets are listed “All In”. Where both markets are listed as “Final Field” normal scratching/deductions rules apply.

Quaddie: A Quaddie requires nominating the winners of four races as nominated by the National TAB’s on selected race meetings.

Win 6: A Win 6 requires nominating the winners of 6 nominated races as selected by William Hill on selected race meetings. If you successfully nominates all 6 winners of the Win 6 races, you will receive a dividend equal to an amount declared by the Selected Tote. If you successfully nominates the first 5 winners of the selected races, but fail to nominate the final 6th race winner, you will receive a supplementary dividend equal to an amount declared by the Selected Tote.


Jockey Challenge

Betting on the Jockey Challenge is Win Only. In the case of 2 or more jockeys finishing the day on the same amount of points, the Dead-Heat Rule applies. This is regardless of the amount of outright winners ridden by either of these jockeys.

If any individual jockey in the market does not complete at least one ride for the meeting, all wagers on the Jockey Challenge for that meeting will be cancelled and monies refunded. The option “any other individual jockey” covers any jockey whose odds are not listed in the market.


Head to Head

William Hill will offer Head to Head markets on selected Horse Racing, Greyhounds and Harness events. One runner within the Head to Head market must finish in first four placegetters as declared by stewards for Head to Head to be finalised.


Runner v The Field

William Hill will offer Runner v The Field markets on selected Horse Racing, Greyhounds and Harness events. Runner v The Field markets allow you to select whether the field will beat a “nominated runner”.

The nominated runner will be clearly defined, it will be the runner with shortest price when fixed odds markets go up and this does not change even if “nominated” runner is misplaced as the runner with the shortest price throughout betting.


Odds v Evens

Odds v Evens is available on selected thoroughbred, harness and greyhound meetings.

Odds v Evens allows you to bet head to head between the odd numbered runners versus the even numbered runners in a particular race. Whether a runner is designated “odd” or “even” is based on the saddlecloth/rug number of the runner not the box/barrier of the runner. For example, if a greyhound wears rug number 10 and jumps from box 3, then the greyhound will be considered an “even” runner.


Top Half vs Bottom Half

Top Half v Bottom Half allows you to wager “head to head” between runners from the top half of the field v the bottom half of the field based on their official number in a particular race.

If Top Half or Bottom Half can’t be equally split into two teams then the “Top Half” will receive the extra runner; i.e. Field of 13 (Top Half = Numbers 1-7, Bottom Half = Numbers 8-13).


All Up/Multi

An All-Up Bet is also known as a Multi, Accumulator or Parlay. For racing, an All-Up involves picking a maximum of four selections (Win or Place) in four different races. The prices of all selections (legs) are multiplied to determine the final dividend.

Should any of the selections of the All-Up be scratched, the bet on the remaining selections and the initial stake will stand.


Parlays

To simplify the placing of multi-bets, a number of set combinations called Parlays have evolved over time and these are summarised below. Each Parlay has a set number of selections or legs, and when you select a Parlay, you are choosing all possible combinations of multi-bets for that number of selections or legs. In addition, some Parlays, also include single bets on each selection or leg.

The key advantage of a Parlay over a standard multi is that if some of your selections or legs are successful then you will still win a dividend based upon how many successful combinations you chose.
