Horse Racing Betting

A day out at the races is sure to be a glamorous affair; smart suits and stylish dresses, pimms and champagne and ending the day with pockets overflowing with all those winnings.

Horse racing
Well at least the first part is true but the winnings? Don't count on it. The sporadic win is a possibility but to really understand horse racing betting and to give yourself the best chance of winning then it might take more than picking a name that takes your fancy or the jockey that's wearing your favourite colour.

In the UK there are 3 types of bets, these are 'win', 'place' and 'each way'. A 'win' means that your horse must finish in 1st place; to 'place' means that you are betting on a horse to finish 2nd, 3rd or 4th depending on the amount of horses running and 'each way' is a bet on a horse to come in 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

By studying the statistics offered you will gain more of an insight into each horse that is running; the previous wins, when the horse last ran, the weight of the horse, who the owner, trainer and jockey are and sometimes how far the horse has travelled (a good distance could mean that the owner anticipates a win) are all factors that could give indication as to the likely performance of the horse in the upcoming race.

Horse race betting takes a certain amount of knowledge to increase your chances of a win; if you like the idea of betting but would prefer something simpler then consider other forms of betting available such as poker, jack black, slots or even bingo.

Online casino games are an easy, accessible and convenient way to try your hand at betting. With most sites offering free games and the opportunity to try before you buy they are ideal for first time players who are finding their feet. And if it is that winning feeling that you want (who doesn't?!) then the online casino games generally have better odds too. Jackpot City's average payout is tempting 96.02% you won't get that from horse racing bets!

So if you like the idea of betting but want to keep it simple then perhaps betting on the horses is not the best option for you; try experimenting with other games or a game like Royal Derby instead.
