    Tote Betting

    Betting a responsible wager on a dog on our Tote facilities is a great way to experience the excitement of the night. There are different types of bets you can place ranging from a single win to a Jackpot. Here are the most common type of bets placed each night.

    Win - Your dog must finish first in the race.

    Place - Your dog must finish first or second in the race 

    Each way - This is a win bet and a place bet combined, e.g. €2 each-way bet will cost you €4 (€2 to win and €2 to place). You pick one greyhound and your selection must finish either first or second. If your greyhound finishes first you collect from both your win and your place bet. If your selection finishes second then you collect only from the place portion of your bet.
