Overview: Team vs Team in Dog Racing/Poker
This is going to be an epic night. Each team will have a designated amount of money to work with, and can utilize towards betting on dogs or betting on cards. Most $’s when time expires, wins.
Be A Gentlemen…Don’t Cheat! We need you to do all you can from cheating and being an asshole, and I know that is extremely hard for most.
Each player of a team can contribute to a team’s starting pot. No maximum or minimum attendance, but there is a maximum amount of funds a player can give $25 max. Also the max team starting funds is, $150.00. If 10 guys show up to a game, they can do $15/each = $150 to gamble with) (i.e 5 guys show up to a game, they have $25/each = $125 to gamble with).
All starting money must be accounted for prior to 7:30. If a teammate shows up at 7:31, they can still play, but they can not add to the pot. This will only hurt your team if it has less than 6 guys at the starting time. Your team will have 1 hour to use the funds to make the most money possible. Gambling will be from 7:30-8:30 (Might be adjusted onsite but be on time!). After the hour is over, the team with the most money remaining in the match up remaining wins. Teams can either gamble any legal way within the dog track, whether that is playing cards or betting on dogs.
Your team can split up the money and use it on poker. Some can play poker, some can bet on races. You can put all money into 1 person playing poker or one bet on a race. Use it any legal betting way you would like with respect to the races and poker. You can not use additional funds that you bring with you for League gambling purposes. You can not add more money to your team fund if you run out. You can use personal money for any drinks/food while onsite.
An exact time and location will be set at event location. Each team needs to show money at a designated location within the track at that exact time. Failure to have funds at that time will result in the funds not counting. All money accounted at the hour. Most $ wins.
Betting on Races:
Type of bets:
Straight bet or Single or Win bet. This is the simplest and most common bet. You bet on a winner at given odds. You collect only if your chosen greyhound is the first across the finish line.
Place. A wager for place means you collect if your selected greyhound finishes either first or second.
Show. The third greyhound across the finish line. A wager to show means you collect if your selected greyhound finishes either first, second or third.
Across The Board. You make three individual bets on one dog to Win, Place, and Show. If your selection wins, you collect on all three bets. If your selection runs second, you collect on Place and Show bets. If your selection runs third, you collect the Show bet. Your total wager will be three times the individual bet. For example; a $2 ‘Across The Board’ bet would cost $6.
Combination Bet. Combinations cover from two to four greyhounds to win in chosen order. (see following bets).
Superfecta. A bet placed on four greyhounds to cross the finish line in exact chosen order.
Twin Trifecta. A multiple pool bet. Two trifecta selections in two races. You select the winning Trifecta combination in one race and exchange that ticket for a second Trifecta in the following race. One-half of the net Twin Trifecta pool will be paid equally to winners of the first half when those tickets are presented to be exchanged. The remaining half of the pool, along with any carry over will be to winners of the second half. If no one selects the second half correctly, the pool is carried over to the next racing performance.
Tri-Super. Similar to the Twin Trifecta. You select the winning Trifecta combination in one race and exchange that ticket for a Superfecta in the following race.
Titanic Tri-Super This operates the same as the Tri-Super, except you must correctly select the Trifecta combination in the 5th Race and the Superfecta in the 7th Race.
Daily Double. Similar to an accumulator you select the winners of the first and second races on that day. You must place your bet before the start of the first race.
Jackpot. Pick six winners in six races to share in a Jackpot prize. The rules and prizes will vary from race track to race track.
Parlay or Accumulator. A multiple bet. A kind of ‘let-it-ride’ bet. Making simultaneous selections on two or more races with the intent of pressing the winnings of the first win on the bet of the following race selected, and so on. All the selections made must win for you to win the parlay. If a race is a tie, postponed or cancelled, your parlay is automatically reduced by one selection; a double parlay becomes a straight bet, a triple parlay becomes a double. A parlay bet can yield huge dividends if won.
Pick 3. Picking the winners of three consecutive races.
Pick 6. Picking the winners of six consecutive races.
