Two million dollar jackpot on Quartet & First 4 Merged Pool at Thursday��s Happy Valley race meeting

18/10/2015

Racing fans have plenty to look forward to at this Thursday’s (22 October) Happy Valley race meeting as the Club will be offering a two million dollar jackpot on the Quartet & First 4 Merged Pool.  The jackpot will be allocated to Races 4 and 8, i.e. the first leg of the Triple Trio and the last race, with each race carrying one million dollars.

For bettors seeking to maximize the number of starters in their selections for the smallest investment, the most common method is to use a banker formula and Flexi Bet. Several winners have successfully used this strategy, picking five starters for the Quartet and eight starters for First 4 and employing either a banker-bet formula or a multiple formula with Flexi Bet.  This is a smart way to increase the winning chance and reduce the total bet amount.  Below are some examples for reference:
