# 9.18. Round Robin

- A Round Robin consists of ten bets involving 3 selections from different events, comprising 3 doubles, 1 treble and 6 Any To Come (ATC) single bets. This is where the whole or part of the return from one selection is automatically reinvested on another selection (see example below).
- Round Robins are only accepted on Horse Racing or Greyhound events, excluding Ante-Post events.

For Example, if the 3 selections and their odds were:

A = 2.50 | B = 3.00 | C = 4.00 |

(Fractional equivalent: 6/4, 2/1 & 3/1)

**a)** If all selections won in a €1 Round Robin, the payout would be calculated as such:

**3 x Doubles**

Selections | Odds | Payout |

A + B | 2.50 x 3.00 | = 7.50 |

A + C | 2.50 x 4.00 | = 10.00 |

B + C | 3.00 x 4.00 | = 12.00 |

**1 x Treble**

Selections | Odds | Payout |

A + B + C | 2.50 x 3.00 x 4.00 | = 30.00 |

**6 x Any To Come Bets**

(This means your stake goes on the first selection, and if there is any return then you get the same stake on the second selection. This stake for this extra bet will be deducted from the final returns)

€1A ATC* | €1B = 2.50 + 3.00 As 'A' won then €1 goes on 'B' |

€1B ATC | €1A = 3.00 + 2.50 As 'B' won then €1 goes on 'A' |

€1A ATC | €1C = 2.50 + 4.00 As 'A' won then €1 goes on 'C' |

€1C ATC | €1A = 4.00 + 2.50 As 'C' won then €1 goes on 'A' |

€1B ATC | €1C = 3.00 + 4.00 As 'B' won then €1 goes on 'C' |

€1C ATC | €1B = 4.00 + 3.00 As 'C' won then €1 goes on 'B' |

*** - ATC (Any to Come)**

The total payout from all the winning bets is €97.50.

The additional Any To Come stakes not included in the original stake is €6.00 (to be deducted from returns).

Therefore the total returns are €91.50, the total stake paid was €10.00, leaving an overall profit of €81.50 for this bet.

**b)** If selections A & B won, and selection C lost, in a €1 Round Robin, the payout would be calculated as such:

**3 x Doubles**

Selections | Odds | Payout |

A + B | 2.50 x 3.00 | = 7.50 |

A + C | 2.50 x Lose | = Nil |

B + C | 3.00 x Lose | = Nil |

**1 x Treble**

Selections | Odds | Payout |

A + B + C | 2.50 x 3.00 x Lose | = Nil |

**6 x Any To Come Bets**

(This means your stake goes on the first selection, and if there is any return then you get the same stake on the second selection. This stake for this extra bet will be deducted from the final returns)

€1A ATC* | €1B = 2.50 + 3.00 As 'A' won then €1 goes on 'B' |

€1B ATC | €1A = 3.00 + 2.50 As 'B' won then €1 goes on 'A' |

€1A ATC | €1C = 2.50 + Lose As 'A' won then €1 goes on 'C' |

€1C ATC | €1A = Lose + N/A As 'C' lost then no money goes on 'A' |

€1B ATC | €1C = 3.00 + Lose As 'B' won then €1 goes on 'C' |

€1C ATC | €1B = Lose + N/A As 'C' lost then no money goes on 'B' |

*** - ATC (Any to Come)**

The total payout from all the winning bets is €24.00.

The additional Any To Come stakes not included in the original stake is €4.00 (to be deducted from returns).

Therefore the total returns are €20.00, the total stake paid was €10.00, leaving an overall profit of €10.00 for this bet.

**c)** If one selection won, e.g. C with odds = 4.00, and A and B lost in the above Round Robin bet, only 2 ATC bets will be winners, the total payout is calculated as follows:

1st Selection | 2nd Selection |

€1C ATC* | €1A = 4.0 + Lose As 'C' won then €1 goes on 'A' |

€1C ATC | €1B = 4.0 + Lose As 'C' won then €1 goes on 'B' |

*** - ATC (Any to Come)**

Return from the two winning bets is €8.00.

The additional Any To Come stakes not included in the original stake is €2.00 (to be deducted from returns).

Total payout from the two **ATC** winning bets is €8.00 - €2.00 = €6.00.

Therefore the total returns are €6.00, the total stake paid was €10.00, leaving an overall loss of €4.00 for this bet.
