SINGAPORE TURF CLUB INTRODUCES NEW FORM OF BETTING:
‘FLEXI-QUARTET’ FROM 11 APRIL 2018
Singapore Turf Club will introduce a new form of betting, Flexi-Quartet, from Wednesday, 11 April 2018. It allows customers the flexibility to decide how much they want to invest for a Quartet bet with multiple combinations. With the introduction of Flexi-Quartet, the Quadro bet type will be discontinued.
Flexi-Quartet works in the same way as the current Quartet bet – customers need to select four horses in the correct finishing order. With Flexi-Quartet, customers can buy a Quartet bet with multiple selections at a lower cost and more flexibility on the number of combinations.
The minimum investment of a Flexi-Quartet bet is $20 or 10% of the full bet value, whichever is higher, and subsequent incremental investments must be in multiples of $1. All unit costs will be rounded up to the nearest dollar. The following shows how the minimum investment of Flexi-Quartet betting works:
|Quartet Selection||1 Unit Cost||10% of Unit Cost||Flexi-Quartet Bet
|1-2-F-F (14 starters)*||$264||$26.40||$27|
*“1-2-F-F” means customer selects horse 1 for first placing, horse 2 for second placing, and any horses for third and fourth placing.
Dividends will be declared based on a full unit bet. Customers who win a Flexi-Quartet bet will receive the winning based on the percentage of the dividend they have invested in. Any unpaid balance of the net pool will be carried forward as a jackpot to the next pool unless otherwise determined by the Club.
Flexi-Quartet will be offered for all races where Quartet is offered. Customers can place Flexi-Quartet bets at the Singapore Racecourse, Off-course Betting Centres and Outlets, Singapore Pools Branches and via Telebet services (phone betting and internet betting).
