Where do I bet at Ripon?

RiponBET-Betting-Trike

We are one of three courses within the UK that offer their own betting operator. RiponBET offers a similar service to the Tote, however the RiponBET bets are based upon ‘RP’ or ‘Racecourse Price’ which can differ to the SP.

RiponBET offers a wide range of bets including standard Win, Place, Each Way, along with a variety of combination and exotic bets such as Forcasts, Lucky 15’s and Accumulators. The betting market is based upon a decimal price rather than the classic SP e.g : Red Rum 11.0 – Red Rum 10/1. Please note that decimal prices are displayed with a £1 stake included ie. That is exactly the total you will receive for every pound you bet. 

We also offer the Place6 which is a variation of the classic ‘Placepot’.  Please simply select a horse or multiple horses in each of the FIRST 6 races. The Place6 is a fantastic opportunity to win big from a small minimum stake of £2.

Rather than working on a pool system and the payout being a dividend of the overall prize pool like the Tote Placepot. The RiponBET Place 6 is effectively an Accumulator bet based on the place prices of each of your
selection.

Why not try a Lucky Dip Place6 for a chance to win big at Ripon on your next visit.

The Bookmakers

The bookmakers display their odds for each race and compete to offer the best price to customers, the price taken at the time of your bet will be fixed unlike betting with RiponBET which can fluctuate depending on the market.

Minimum bets

This varies but it is usually £2. Usually shown on the boards displaying the odds but if in doubt- ask.

Practice Online

If you are an inexperienced bettor you might find there are a lot of information to deal with: the horse, their form, and various charming but peculiar betting terms like “bismark” and what exactly is “each way”. We’ve explained some of the basics below. If you are familiar with the basics, and interested in finding a good price on a horse, we suggest you do some research into the prices being offered.

Types of bets

Win

The simplest and most rewarding bet. Your horse must finish first with the jockey intact.

e.g “£5 on 6 to win” (6 being the number given to the horse and jockey which is represented in the race card or on the boards above the betting station, if you aren’t placing a bet on the next race to take place make sure the bookie is aware of this)

Each Way

This incorporates two bets in one- you are betting on your horse to win or be placed. (so a £5 each way bet will cost £10 as you are betting £5 on it to win and £5 for a place.)

e.g “£5 each way on 6”

Each way bets are as follows:

  • Up to 4 runners- no place betting
  • 5-7 runners- 1st & 2nd
  • 8+ runners- 1st, 2nd & 3rd
  • Handicap 16+ runners – 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Return on bet:

If your horse wins you get a return on £5 with the stated odds. If your horse finishes in one of the lower positions within your boundaries your return is based on a fixed proportion of the winning odds, usually 1/4 or 1/5 depending on the number of runners.

If you put the entire bet on the horse to win you will claim back a higher return but the beauty of an each way bet is that it acts an insurance policy and used as an overall betting strategy.

Place

If you think that the horse is unlikely to win a race, but will still put up a good show then place betting is perfect. You are betting the horse will finish in the top 2,3 or 4 depending on the number of runners in the race.

e.g “£5 place on 6”

Return on bet:

  • 5-7 runners- 1st & 2nd- 1/4 of winning odds
  • 8+ runners- 1st, 2nd & 3rd- 1/5 of winning odds
  • Handicap 16+ runners- 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th- 1/4 of winning odds

The ‘odds’ and placing a bet

Odds against

(e.g 2/1. 7/1, 15/2, 50/1)

If your horse’s chance of winning the race is less than 50/50 it is described as odds against. You will receive your stake back plus your stake multiplied by the odds against it.

Example:

  • Your horse wins at 2/1 (pronounced two-to-one)
  • If your stake was £10 you will receive:
  • Your £10 bet back
  • Plus your stake multiplied by the odds of 2/1 = (£10 x 2) = £20
  • So you will receive a total of £30.

Sometimes the numbers may appear more complicated e.g 15/2 or 9/4. This is simply because odds are normally expressed as fractions so can’t include half numbers. So for ease of working out how much your bet would return, think of 15/2 as 7.5/1

Even money

If your horse’s chance of winning the race is 50/50 it is described as evens. In this case if your horse wins you will receive your stake back doubled.

Example:

  • Your horse wins at 1/1 (pronounced ‘evens’) if your stake was £10 you will receive:
  • Your £10 back
  • Plus your stake multiplied by the odds of 1/1 = (£10 x 1) = £10
  • So you will receive a total of £20.

Odds on

(e.g 1/2, 4/7, 3/10)

If your horse’s perceived chance of winning the race is more than 50/50 it is described as odds on. In this case if your horse wins you will receive your stake back plus your stake multiplied by the odds on it.

Example:

  • Your horse wins at 1/2 (pronounce one-to-two on)
  • If your stake was £10 you will receive:
  • Your £10 bet back
  • Plus your stake multiplied by the odds of 1/2 = (£10 x ½) = £5
  • So you will receive a total of £15.
