Roving Banker - Trifecta

A Roving Banker allows a customer to cover multiple combinations in one transaction by anchoring a selection as a definite placegetter. On a Trifecta the selected Roving Banker/s must finish in the first 3.

To place a Roving Banker

  1. Select the Roving Banker Option
  2. Select a runner as the Roving Banker (RB) in the RB selection column - this means it must finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
  3. Select at least two more selections in the ‘With’ column to fill the remaining placings

To be successful the selected ‘Roving Banker’ must finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd whilst the ‘With’ selections must fill the remaining placings between them.

A customer can select up to two Roving Bankers on a Trifecta. It is not possible to have three or more Roving Banker’s in a Trifecta as this means all three placings must be filled by the Roving Bankers.

When two Roving Bankers are selected, for the bet to be successful both ‘Roving Bankers’ must finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd whilst the ‘With’ selections must fill the remaining placings between them.

On which Races can I have a Trifecta?

Trifectas are available on every race.

Carryovers

In the event no entry selects the correct winning combination, the Trifecta prize pool on that race will be carried over to the next Trifecta pool on that nominated meeting. If the carryover occurs on the last race of the meeting, the jackpot will be allocated to the first race of a meeting to be nominated by the TAB.

Scratchings

If any runners in your bet have been scratched you will receive a refund for every eliminated combination. For example, if you only select three runners, all combinations are eliminated when one is scratched and your refund will be the entire value of the bet. In bets containing more than three runners you will only receive a refund for those combinations in which the scratched runner featured. You will also receive a full refund if the nominated race is abandoned or postponed

Jackpot

In the event the total investment on the correct winning combination is less than $0.50, part of the net Trifecta payout pool on that race will be carried over to the next Trifecta pool on the nominated meeting. If no person selects the correct combination, the entire net Trifecta payout pool will be carried over to the next nominated race. If a carryover occurs on the last race of the meeting, the jackpot will be allocated to the first race of a meeting to be nominated by the TAB.

Dead Heats

Dead heats in any of the fi rst three placings will result in more than one winning combination. Each combination will have a separate dividend. For example, if runner 1 wins the nominated event and runner 2 and runner 3 dead heat for second place, a Trifecta dividend will be paid on both combinations 1.2.3 and 1.3.2. The net Trifecta payout pool is split with half allocated to each winning combination.

In the event of a dead heat where one Trifecta combination is selected and one is not, for example a customer selected 1.2.3 but no person had selected 1.3.2, the pool is then split with half allocated to the combination 1.2.3 and the other half of the net payout pool would jackpot.

Commission Rate

A commission rate of 20% is deducted from gross Trifecta investments.

Pooling of Trifecta

Trifecta pools on Eastern States meetings are combined with SuperTAB. The vast majority of WA meetings are also combined, however a small number of country meetings each week may involve WA stand alone pools.

Flexi Betting

Flexi Betting allows you to take virtually as many combinations in a Trifecta as you wish and you nominate the total amount you wish to spend.

The TAB calculates the Flexi percentage of the investment you have placed by dividing the total spend by the number of combinations selected. The Flexi percentage must be greater than 1% for the bet to be allowed to place.

If successful, you will receive a percentage of the displayed dividend equal to the Flexi percentage of the bet you have placed.
