# 9.24. Reverse Forecast Double

1. A Reverse Forecast Double bet is one where you choose at least 2 selections in two or more events. Your selections must finish first and second in either order in at least two events. A computer generated straight forecast dividend is declared on each of the races (see Help, 9.18.2). This will require multiple stakes according to the number of selections. In order to get a return you must pick both the first and second placed selections in the the correct order in at least 2 races.

Example A:

You select 2 Horses in Race 1 and 2 Horses in Race 2 in Reversed Forecast doubles.

There are 2 combinations of Straight Forecasts in each race. The number of bets is calculated by multiplying these figures.

2 x 2 = 4 Reversed Forecast Doubles. This bet will cost €4 for a unit stake of €1

Example B:

You select 3 Horses in Race 1 and 2 Horses in Race 2 in Reversed Forecast doubles

There are 6 combinations of Straight Forecasts in Race 1 and 2 in Race 2. The number of bets is calculated by multiplying these figures.

6 x 2 = 12 Reversed Forecast Doubles. This bet will cost €12 for a unit stake of €1

2. Bet returns are calculated by multiplying the two dividends together, which gives the return for a €1 unit stake. The final payout is then calculated by multiplying this figure by your unit stake placed. See example in 9.23 above.
