Some practical examples of betting and variations
The Daily Double: You win if you pick the winner of the first and second race. To bet you say "$2 daily double on 3 (your pick to win in the first race) and 5 (your pick to win in the second race)". Your bet must be placed before the closing bell of the first race.
Quiniela: (Reverse Forecast, UK) You win if you pick two greyhounds that finish first and second, in either order, in any single race. To bet you say "$2 quiniela, numbers 5 and 6". If the results of the first two greyhounds are either 5-6 or 6-5, you win.
Quiniela Box: Pick three or more greyhounds. You win if any two of your selections finish first and second. To bet you say "$2 quiniela box on 4,5 and 6". You are making three separate bets so your minimum bet is $6. If they finish 4-5, 4-6, 6-4, 6-5, 5-4 or 5-6 you win. You can box as few as three or as many as the field.
Quiniela Double: Quiniela Double is a combination bet of two winning quinielas in the last two races. Select two greyhounds to win and place, in either order, in each of the last two races. You must win both quinielas to win your Quiniela Double.
Quiniela Wheel: You can also 'wheel' a favorite dog, so that it is combined with all the other
dogs. Based on the $2 value, the total cost of a wheel with, say, 7 other dogs is $14. For example; if you wheel #2 with the 7 other dogs in the same race and #2 comes in first or second, you win because you have all the combinations covered.
Perfecta or Exacta: (Straight Forecast, UK) The Perfecta is similar to the Quiniela, except the two greyhounds must finish in the exact order. To bet you say "$3 Perfecta, 5-6". Only if the greyhounds finish 5-6 you win.
Perfecta Box: As with the quiniela box, except the two greyhounds must finish in the exact order. To bet you say "$2 perfecta box on 4,5 and 6". You are making six separate bets so your minimum bet is $12. If they finish 4-5, 4-6, 6-4, 6-5, 5-4 or 5-6 you win. With Perfecta Box, for each extra dog you add to the box the possible combinations get compunded and your number of bets increases accordingly. A "$2 perfecta box on 4 dogs" will cost you $24 (12 bets), a "$2 perfecta box on 5 dogs" $40 (20 bets), and a "$2 perfecta box on 6 dogs" $60 (30 bets).
Straight Trifecta: (Tricast or Treble Forecast, UK) Pick the first three greyhounds to cross the finish line in exact order. To bet you say "$2 trifecta numbers 7,4 and 5". Only if they finish 7-4-5 you win.
$1 Trifecta Box: Pick three greyhounds to finish first, second and third, in any order. To bet you say "$1 trifecta box 2,3 and 5". You are actually making six $1 bets, so your total bet is $6. If they finish 2-3-5, 2-5-3, 3-2-5, 3-5-2, 5-2-3 or 5-3-2; you win.
$1 Trifecta Key: Pick your favorite greyhound to win, then two or more others to place and show in any order. To bet you say "$1 trifecta key on 1 with 2 and 3". You are actually making two $1 bets so your total bet is $2. To win your Key greyhound must win and the other two must finish either 1-2-3 or 1-3-2.
Superfecta: The straight superfecta is played by picking the first four greyhounds to finish in exact
order. To bet you say "$2 straight superfecta 1-3-2-8". You would collect if the race finishes exactly 1-3-2-8.
You can Box, Key or Wheel most of the above bets.
