9.23. Straight Forecast Double
- A Straight Forecast Double is a bet where you choose 4 selections in two events (2 selections in each of events). In both events your selections must finish 1st and 2nd in the correct order. A computer generated straight forecast dividend is declared on each of the races (see Help, 9.18.2). In order to get a return you must pick both the first and second placed selections in the correct order in each race.
- 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.
You place a €0.50 bet on a Straight Forecast Double
If the two dividends were €11.50 and €7.00
The return for a €1 Straight Forecast Double is calculated as 11.50 x 7.00 = €80.50
Therefore, a successful €0.50 Straight Forecast Double would return
€80.50 x 0.50 = €40.25
