Bodog Horses Wagering Menu

There is something for everyone at Bodog and savvy horseplayers can enjoy action from major racetracks from around the world featuring both Thoroughbred and harness racing. They provide all of the up to the date information you need to make an informed decision and also offer detailed information about each track, including stakes races and expert selections, to help further your knowledge.

The wagering menu includes straight wagers – win, place and show. It also includes exotic bets, multi-race wagers and head to head matchups. Exotic wagers include exacta, trifecta and superfectas which involve picking the top two, three or four finishers of a race. A multi-race wager is more complex and involves picking the winners of multiple consecutive races. If these terms are overwhelming, do not despair –they offer a library of helpful horse racing articles written by experts to help familiarize you with the sport.

Bodog also offers something that sets them above some of their competitors – they offer propositional wagers. Sharp horseplayers can get in early and make prop bets on major races such as the Breeders’ Cup as well as the Triple Crown and major international races. This is a great way to secure a strong price on an up and coming star and look very smart when the big race rolls around.

Bodog Horses Payouts

Payouts in the Racebook are calculated based on the final odds. This is known as “parimutel wagering” which essentially means that you are betting among your peers and is used at all racetracks in the United States. Live odds fluctuate and Bodog does not show them in the time leading up to the race. Bodog does post a morning line but that is just for informational purposes and is meant to be a speculation of what the handicapper thinks the final odds will be.

As soon as the race is official, you can check the results by clicking the “RESULTS” icon next to the race that you wagered on. Should you have a winning wager, your payout amount will appear in your account and this is typically done between 10-25 minutes after each race is official.

Now that you’re signed up and taking advantage of all of the promotions, Bodog also makes withdrawals simple and speedy. There are several ways to make withdrawals but it is worth remembering that if you elect to utilize a Check by Courier, the first withdrawal in that method each month is free. After that, there is a $50 fee for withdrawals and Bodog does not charge any fee for a Bitcoin withdrawal. There are some minimums and maximums associated with each method.
