How to take a Place6
Simply select the meeting and bet type. Choose the runner(s) per leg. Then choose the amount (either as a Percentage bet or a full unit).

Note: Place6 will be on the last six races of a meeting.

Tips: If online, after you've selected the meeting from the schedule, click on the 'PL6' icon (it will be beside the first leg of the Place6). If taking one in store, use the '%Pick6 or %Place6' bet slip.

Betting tactics
There are lots of different strategies for collecting on a Place6. Taking more runners will certainly increase the number of chances you have. Other approaches include:

  • Back the favourites
  • Throw in some outsiders to potentially win more because you may share the prize pool with less people
  • Let the computer do the selecting for you with Easybets and Jokers
More information
  • Easybets are available and Jokers may be used
  • There is one dividend for Place6. If you have several winning combinations you can win this several times
  • Calculating winnings. The dividend is the amount in the dividend pool divided by the number of winning combinations (units). Your collect amount is the dividend multiplied by how many winning combinations you have multiplied by the % amount bet
  • If your runner is scratched, it is replaced with the favourite ***
  • Should Place6 not be won by anyone or only partially won, jackpotting money will be used in bonus pools in the same way as it is for Quaddie
  • Percentage betting is available
  • The full unit bet is $1
  • For races with eight or more starters, there are three Places. For races with five to seven starters there are two Places. If less than five starters, there will be no Place pool. In this case, all runners in that race will be deemed winners for Place6
