TAB will launch a new horseracing bet on the Sun Met race meeting at Kenilworth this Saturday that should appeal to new and existing horseracing fans alike.
TAB’s Racing Roulette is a fun way of betting on the Sun Met meeting at Kenilworth this Saturday and a R20,000 add-in from TAB should ensure good-value payouts for those who hit the right colours.
TAB customers can play Racing Roulette on Races 6, 7, 9 (the Sun Met) and 11 at the Kenilworth meeting and to add to the excitement TAB will add R5,000 to each of the four pools.
Racing Roulette is easy to play. Horses in a race are assigned to one of three colour groups – red, black or green. Players choose a colour and bet using the following numbers: 1 = RED; 2 = BLACK; 3 = GREEN.
The winner of the race determines the winning colour. So if a horse in the RED group wins, all players who have bet on RED (Number 1) win.
The rules are the same as a TAB Win bet with a R1 betting unit and a minimum bet of R6. Bets on a colour are refunded only if all horses in that colour group are scratched.
To play Racing Roulette in a Phumelela TAB this Saturday, mark VENUE OVAL 10 on the betting form and then the RACE number and the number of the colour you are betting on. Do not use OVAL 10 for any other bets.
Colour groups for the Met: RED = Do It Again, Head Honcho, Undercover Agent, Kampala Campari; BLACK = Rainbow Bridge, Legal Eagle, Doublemint, Tap O’Noth, Hat Puntano; GREEN = Oh Susannah, Made To Conquer, Eyes Wide Open, Milton.
TAB customers must note that although the Sun Met is included on Saturday’s Turffontein racecard, they must select WEST CAPE on the TAB betting form as the venue when taking certain bets on the big race.
Mark TURF (Turffontein) on the betting form for multi-race bets combining Turffontein races with the Sun Met. These bets are Double, Pick 3, BiPot, Place Accumulator, Pick 6 and Jackpot.
For example, the Met is Race 9 on the Turffontein racecard and TAB customers taking a Double on say Races 9 and 10 at Turffontein must select TURF on the betting form as the venue.
But TAB customers taking Win, Place, Swinger, Exacta, Trifecta and Quartet bets on the Sun Met must select WEST CAPE (Kenilworth) on the betting form and Race 9. They cannot select TURF (Turffontein) Race 9.
