Perm Your Bets

When making your selections in virtual online-casino horse racing games, think carefully about all the options you have available to you.

The obvious choice seems to be to make a single bet on one of the different runners in which case if your horse won, you would be paid out as a winner.

The casino bets that seem to be less popular are forecasts and tricasts. These require you to predict the 1-2 and 1-2-3 respectively. This may seem like a very difficult thing to do and you would not be wrong in thinking this. However, one way of putting the odds more in your favour is to perm your selections into a combination.

For example, with a forecast you can reverse your horses. This means that the two runners you select can finish in any order. Depending on the odds of each horse, there will be different payouts for each forecast.

This can also be done with tricasts where there would be six different combinations with your three horses. If you would like to have a bet where there are four different horses within your combination, this would increase the numbers of bets to 24. You then need to consider what stake you would like to play with. With 24 bets you may need to reduce your stake, otherwise the total cost could be very expensive per race.

Another bet which is often overlooked is a horse to be placed. This is where you are betting on a selection to finish within the frame which is first, second or third. You do get reduced odds for this because your chances of winning are much higher. However, if you choose a horse with decent size odds, you can still get some good value from this market.
