Place6 requires the selection of the dividend bearing place getters of the last six races of a nominated meeting.

Key information

• There is one dividend for Place6. If you have several winning combinations you can win the dividend several times.
• Calculating winnings: The dividend is the amount in the dividend pool divided by the number of winning combinations (units). Your collect is the dividend multiplied by how many winning combinations you have, multiplied by the % amount bet.

If Tom takes a Place6 for 25% and has three winning combinations then he will collect 75% of the dividend.

Divdend pool: $20,000
Winning units: 20
Dividend: $1,000
Collect: .75 x 1,000 = $750

• If your runner is scratched, it is replaced with the favourite. For more details see betting rules regarding substitutes.
• Should Place6 not be won by anyone or only partially won, jackpotting money will be used in bonus pools in the same way as it is for a Quaddie.
• Place6 Percentage betting is available. For Place6, the full unit bet is $1 and the minimum Percentage bet is $5.00.
• For races with eight or more starters there are three place dividends. For races with five to seven starters there are two place dividends. If less than five starters, there will be no Place pool. In this case, all runners in that race will be deemed winners for Place6

Place6 Schedule

Place6 will operate on the last six races of every New Zealand meeting and selected overseas feature meetings.

What is Percentage betting?

Percentage betting allows you all the excitement of a big bet without the big outlay. You can decide how much you want to spend on a bet that involves a number of combinations. You state the total amount that you wish to spend and the computer spreads this across your combinations. You bet a percentage of the normal cost and get a percentage of the dividend in return. With Percentage betting you can bet any amount you like over $5.00 (provided the minimum bet unit is 5%).

Place6 Will Pay dividends

You are able to view the 'Will Pay' dividends for any Place6 prior to the running of the last leg. Place6 Will Pay dividends are available on via the last leg's bet slip.

The Place6 Will Pay dividend is the minimum dividend possible, providing there isn't a dead-heat for a dividend bearing placing in the last leg. This dividend is calculated by teaming your runner up with the two runners that hold the most live units on them.

What are Will Pay dividends? Will Pay dividends are used to help determine what your payout might be for a multi-leg bet type such as a Place6 . . . find out more
