Straight Tricast Bets

A Straight Tricast bet also goes by the name of a Tricast bet, and when you come across such bets you may be a little unsure of how to place such a bet and what it is you are actually betting on.

Well, there is nothing confusing about the way that Straight Tricast bets work and have been designed, for you will be placing a bet on a horse race or greyhound race for example, and on your bet you have to name in the correct order, the horses or greyhounds that will come in first place, second place and third place on your selected race.

If the three greyhounds or horses pass the finishing line in the correct order that you had predicted, you will have placed a winning bet and will be paid out accordingly.

The pay-outs odds on a Straight Forecast bet are not actually offered as odds, they are awarded via a Tricast Dividend that is announced one the race has been run and the result of any race is known.

That dividend will be declared to a 1.00 stake, so dependent on the stake levels you placed on a  winning Tricast bet you will be paid out a percentage of that dividend if you wagered less than 1.00 on your winning bet, or conversely you will get a multiple of that dividend if you wagered more than 1.00 on that bet.

Sports to Place Straight Tricast Bets On

Due to the obvious fact that Straight Tricast bets are based around picking out the first three runners’ home in a race, then you are only going to be able to place such bets on a small number of sports categories, such as any of those listed below.

  • Greyhounds
  • Horse Racing
  • Virtual Sports
  • Virtual Racing

The value of the declared dividends is always going to be based on the win odds attached to each of the first three runners past the finishing line in first, second and third place, so if those runners had massive starting prices then the dividends declared will always be way higher than they would be if three of the much more fancied runners finish in first, second and third place in any race.
