This is one of the features provided at Ladbrokes racing section and allows a player to increase odds by making 2-4 selections that will finish in the top four in no particular order. The feature is available on various Australian and New Zealand Greyhounds and Thoroughbred races. For the availability of the feature, there need to be at least six runners on a race.
The feature’s availability for Thoroughbred races will be from 9:30 am (track time) and 30 minutes before the jump from the Greyhounds.
Here is a quick process of using the Same Race Multi feature;
- On the race card, go to the tab ‘Same Race Multi’ to make your selections
- Once completed, click ‘Add to Betslip’ and then enter the stake you prefer
- Go to ‘Place Bet’ then proceed to confirm on the ‘Confirm Bets’ option
Accessing the feature is easy and using it is simple. This comes out as a good feature that can be utilised by both beginners and experienced players since it provides different chances of recording a win.
Daily Doubles & Running Doubles
These are other features/bet types offered by Ladbrokes. On the nominated races provided, these bet types will require a player to select a winner. The major difference between Daily Doubles and Running Doubles is the requirement of consecutives. With Running Doubles, as the name suggests, they are consecutive in that after selecting the ‘Running Doubles’ tab the first leg begins from the race the player is on. This means that the Running Doubles feature will not be available on any final race.
On the other hand, Daily Doubles are not consecutive in most cases. They will always highlight the races such that this is the first leg and the other is the second leg. Using the feature is also easy with the feature visibly presented on the race card. The major highlight is that the features can pay on various totes such as; VIC/STAB and NSW TAB.
The racing section at Ladbrokes has also seen different markets provided to the players. As opposed to other rivals that have offered limited racing markets, Ladbrokes has gone a notch higher laying major focus on the markets. Players can enjoy the normal Win, Place, Each-Way markets while at the same time enjoying exotic markets that have a promise of better returns. Here are the exotic betting markets provided by the operator;
- Exacta – The bet has to have two selections that will finish in positions 1 and 2 in the correct order
- First Four – The bet has to have four selections that will finish in positions 1, 2, 3, and 4 in the correct order
- Quadrella (Quaddie) – The bet will feature four races where the selections picked must finish in position 1
- Quinella – The bet has to have two selections that will finish in positions 1 and 2 in no particular order
- Trifecta – The bet has to have three selections that will finish in positions 1, 2, and 3 in the correct order.
The normal bet types offered at Ladbrokes are;
- Win – You will need to select a winner in a bet (the selection that will finish in position 1 in a bet). Some of the winning bet types include; Best of the Best, Fixed-Price, MidTote, MidTote +5%, NomTote, Best Tote, Best Tote or Starting Price (SP), Starting Price, SPG, TopFluc, TopTote, and VicTote.
- Place – You will need to select a runner who can finish in either of the positions, 1, 2, or 3 in a race. Some of the place betting types include; Fixed Price, MidTote, TopTote, VicPlace, and Default Tote.
- Each-Way Bet – This is a bet placed on both win and place portions. To record a win, the selected winner should either win or place.
The experience of the bet types is thrilling with the options readily available. On the downside, however, some are very risky and a player can easily incur great losses.
Pick Your Own Odds (PYOO)
This is one of the top features tailored for the racing section. On select Horse Racing and Greyhounds events, a player is presented with an avenue to add the winning margin of a selection. If your selected option wins, for example, the operator will offer enhanced odds by at least the margin you had chosen. The feature also allows the player to pick his/her own odds and have the margin selection automatically updated. The feature will be presented on the tab ‘Pick Your Odds’ on your race card.
Here is the process of how to use the feature;
- After the selection of your preferred horse, click on the ‘plus’ sign provided on the right. This will increase your odds and as the price increases, the margin of winning will also increase. Simply put, the higher the margin set, the better the returns.
A point to note is that while picking you can also decide to decrease the odds and this will also decrease the margin which your horse or greyhound has to win. Then, you can go ahead to place your bet. Note that the minimum margin you can have is that which is more than half a length.
So how will your PYOO bet win? You will only get a return if your selection wins by more than the margin you had set. This means if in your selection you had set your horse to win by more than 2 lengths and goes on to win the race at an official margin length of 3, you will have your bet won.
The feature comes out perfectly with various pros associated with it. A player can make considerably high returns and at the same time can reduce risks by decreasing the odds. No standout negative comes out of this feature.
Last but not least, Ladbrokes has offered a live streaming feature to players. Through the feature, one can get to watch some of the select events live on their accounts. Aside from the sports section, the racing section also incorporates live streaming. Players can watch top Australia, UK, Ireland, New Zealand, Asia, North America, and other International Horse Racing and Greyhounds events.
Like many other bookies, you will need a funded account or have a bet placed in the past 24 hours to watch the race. The events will be viewed in High-Definition quality and nothing beats that experience. This always cuts out as the most sought after feature. The experience is even made better thanks to the feature’s availability on the mobile platform. Many highlights are placed on the feature as noted but the major downside is that very limited selections are available for streaming at Ladbrokes.
Ladbrokes is available on mobile with both a site version and an app is tailored to the players. The mobile platform is accessible to both Android and iOS users and the major highlight is how well the operator has addressed the platform. The app comes out as useful in ensuring the convenience and flexibility levels are achieved. The app is easy to understand with the options easy to find. The graphics are not the best but they are above average. All the racing events as seen on the desktop version are available at the tap of your mobile phone.
