Doubles

To win a Double, you must select the winner of each of two nominated races.

On most meetings TattsBet operates two separate Doubles:

  • The standard Double is usually held on the two main races at the meeting
  • The Extra Double is held on two other races at the same meeting

With a Double you can specify the Maximum Spend you wish to make. The minimum investment per combination is 1% and the Maximum Spend per ticket must be in multiples of a $1. The minimum Spend is $3 unless your investment per combination is 100%. Dividends are calculated and declared on a $1 basis. For further details, see the Fractional Betting page.

Keep a look out for Double jackpots. If there are no winning units on a Double, the pool jackpots to another meeting at a future date. The jackpot pool is always carried over to a meeting of the same code of racing. Please note that partial jackpots occur when the total of winning investments is less than 100%.

You can take as many runners as you like in each race or 'leg' of the Double. The more runners you select to win each 'leg' the more combinations you get.

WHAT IF ONE OF YOUR RUNNERS IS SCRATCHED?

If one of your selections is declared a 'non-runner' or is scratched after you have placed your bet, the money invested on that runner will be transferred to the runner that is the TattsBet totalisator betting favourite when betting is resulted on that particular race. This replacement runner is referred to as the Substitute Favourite. If you have already included the runner that is declared the Substitute Favourite in your Double bet, you will be given that runner twice.
