CHAPTER 13 All-for-All Totalisator 13.1 The purpose of the All-for-All bet is to select the runners or combinations, which qualify for a dividend in respect of the pool in each of the legs of the All-for-All bet selected. All-for-All bets will apply to the WIN and PLACE pools and the general rules applicable to those pools shall apply to their use in All-for-All betting. The pool type may not be common to all legs of the All-for-All bet. The All-for-All bet shall consist of not less than two and not more than eight legs, all of which must be from the same race meeting. The unit of betting shall be as laid down for the WIN and PLACE pools. All legs must be selected in ascending order, but need not be consecutive. More than one runner or combination may be selected in each of the specified legs. If a selected race is abandoned or a selected runner is scratched, then the All-for-All bet continues as if that leg had not been selected and any reinvestments from the previous leg, or legs, shall be carried forward to the next selected leg(s) if any remain. For a single leg bet or the terminating leg of an All-for-All bet, the amount due for investment in that leg, shall be paid as a dividend. If a selected race is, for any reason, run out of the advertised sequence, the selection in such a race will be treated as in rule 13.8 with the added rule that ALL "All-for-All" combinations STARTING on the "out of sequence" race shall terminate on that leg and any appropriate dividend paid. If you have more than one winning selection, their payouts will be added together for reinvestment onto the next leg. If more than one runner is selected after the first leg, all payouts will be reinvested equally by the number of runners and bet types in the next leg. The maximum reinvestment on any single or more selection shall be limited to Rs 100,000 and any amount in excess of this limit shall be held back and treated as dividends due, regardless of the results of any subsequent leg(s) Once the first leg of an All-for-All bet has been run the investor may NOT cancel the bet. ALL the selected legs of an All-for-All bet must have been run before any dividends accruing to the bet will be paid.

CHAPTER 14 Fractional Totalisator 14.1 14.2 14.3 Unit Bet: The unit bet is the same unit bet as per the Totalisator rules for each pool on which fractional betting is possible. Purpose: Fractional betting allows the purchase of a portion of a bet, or a bet a number of times, i.e. a fraction greater than 1. Application: Fractional betting is available for the Quartet Totalisator, Trifecta Totalisator, Pick Eight Totalisator, Pick Six Totalisator, Pick Four Totalisator and Place Accumulator Totalisator. Minimum Bet: The minimum bet cannot be less than the unit bet irrespective of whether a bet is accepted at the full unit bet or accepted at a fraction. Method of purchase: The percentage of betting will never be less than 1% provided the amount is not less than the unit bet. The Computer system will: 14.5.1 14.5.2 Determine the value of the bet by multiplying the horse selection (i.e. number of bets) by the unit of betting for that particular bet type. Compare the amount of money available for investment with the value of the bet as in 14.5.1 above. The resultant percentage is then applied to the unit of betting and rounded down to the nearest cent. Thus arriving at the fractional value of each bet unit purchased, i.e. the base unit of betting. Multiply this base unit of betting with the number of bets taken to determine actual cost of bet. This will be rounded up to the nearest rupee. The difference between the actual cost of the bet and the amount paid (rounded up to the next rupee) will be added to the gross pool for that particular bet type. Print a bet ticket and in addition to the bet details normally printed, show the percentage of the total bet purchased if less than 100%. If the bet purchased is more than a unit then the ticket will show the number of times the bet is purchased and any fraction in excess of the whole number will be shown as a percentage of the unit of betting. Dividends: All unit bet dividends shall be calculated to the completed rupee: Fractional bet dividends shall be calculated by multiplying the unit bet dividend by the percentage of the unit bet purchased and rounded down to the nearest rupee. This resultant dividend is then multiplied by the number of times that the bet is won and rounded down to the nearest rupee.
