In addition, it will also fund a new $1 million race for Harness Racing NSW and a $1 million race for Greyhound Racing NSW.
The details and dates of these races will be announced at a later date.
Odds and Evens is a simple bet where the punter selects the numbers of the first two placegetters to be either odd numbers or even numbers or split, where one is an odd and the other an even number.
The Bet type has a lower take out percentage than other bet types.
- If the first two placegetters in a race are numbers 3 and 5, then punters backing Odds will win
- If the first two placegetters in a race are numbers 8 and 2, then punters backing Evens will win
- If the first two placegetters in a race are numbers 5 and 8, then punters who backed Split will win
TAB will also utilise merged pool technology to maximise the liquidity of Odds and Evens by merging the pool with Quinella bets.
Odds and Evens is now available on all race meetings wagered on through the NSW TAB.
