What Are Extra Places?
Extra Places apply to each way bets and in the case of the list above, each way bets on horse racing.
When placing an each way bet, you are essentially placing two bets in one. Half of your total stake will be placed on the horse to win and the other half will be placed on the horse to finish in a place position.
Industry-standard place terms can be seen below.
- 1-4 runners: win only.
- 5-7 runners: 1/4 odds a places for 1,2.
- 8+ runners: 1/5 odds a places for 1,2,3.
- 12-15 runners (handicaps only): 1/4 odds for places 1,2,3
- 16+ runners (handicaps only)y: 1/4 odds for places 1,2,3,4
Several bookmakers offer customers extra places on selected races each day. When doing so, the place part of each way bets is paid out on additional places.
In a handicap race with 12 runners, bookmakers would generally pay out on each way bets if the horse finished in positions 1 – 3. However, if a bookmaker was offering an extra place on this race, they would also pay out if your runner finished in 4 position.
Essentially, Extra Places increase your chances of a return from your each way bets.
