Where can I find the results of a race I’ve bet on?

Once the race is officially called, under the track click 'RESULTS' beside your race number. The horses that ran, the number of horses for which a refund will be granted, and the payout for each type of wager that was offered will be displayed.

What race types do you offer?

We offer wagering on thoroughbred, quarter horse and harness races.

 

 

When do races become available to bet on?

Races are available to bet on as early as 9:00a ET on the day of the race. In special cases, races are available for betting one day in advance.

 

 

How close to the start of the race can I place a bet?

Place your bets right up to the moment the horses enter the starting gate.

 

 

Can I cancel or change my bet?

Bets cannot be modified or canceled once they’ve been received by our system. This policy is strictly enforced at Bodog and no exceptions will be made, so please review the Bet Slip before placing your bet.

 

 

How soon are bets graded and when is my account updated?

Bets are generally graded 10 to 25 minutes after a race or as soon as we receive confirmed results. Bodog is not liable for any alleged losses due to delays in our grading process.

 

 

Why was my bet voided?

You can place bets right up until the official post time of a race. Occasionally (on account of internet connectivity issues), a bet may be accepted after the official post time. However, as per our general rules, any bets placed after the official post time will be considered void and your money will be refunded. You can verify the time you placed your bet in your eCash statement. You can also verify the official post time at www.equibase.com.

 

 

Do you offer consolation payouts?

If you place a daily double, pick 3 or pick 4 and one of your selections gets scratched in one leg of your ticket but all other legs win, you will receive a consolation payout provided that the track offers one. Additionally, if the track payout on a race pays to all (when nobody who bet in the track's betting pool has a winning ticket), you will receive one consolation payout per winning combination.
