Your earnings from a placepot can be potentially unlimited. The size of your prize will depend on the amount of money in the pot, how popular each winning horse was and the number of total winners.
Placepot betting is available at all racecourses in the UK and Ireland and numerous others throught Europe. In addition, the top bookmakers all offer placepot and quadpot market options.
If a horse pulls out of a race after you’ve made your bet, the non-runner will be replaced with the starting price (SP) favourite. In the event there are joint SP favourites, the horse with the lowest racecard number will be used as the replacement.
The best placepot events are major racing festivals such as the Cheltenham Festival or the Royal Ascot. These events attract large crowds, which means more people will contribute to the prize pool.
Yes. The mechanics of placepots and Pick 6 are basically the same. The only real difference is that Pick 6 is used outside of the UK in countries such as the US.
