Jackpot Pools on Unbet are a good example of the activities of Premium Players in exotic pools. Regardless of the carryover jackpot amount on a treble, exacta, quinella etc clearly the amount of new money bet in the last minute prior to the jump, ALWAYS, negates the carryover amount . Regardless of the piddling amount of the carryover jackpot this regularly happens. As an example on race one last night at Albion Park trots there was $10,000 carryover jackpot on the F4, with less than one minute before the start the pool was around $40,000 ( looking good for a bonus for punters) but alas after the race the pool jump to $63,900. ( see below )
I am sure that money bet in that last minute is not bet randomly by retail punters but by Premium Players who manipulate their investments to ensure any jackpot carryover amount is negated in order that other punters have nothing to gain , other than a reduced deduction rate , from betting into that jackpot pool.
Using last nights F4 as an example.
Carryover jackpot amount $10,000
New Money Invested : $53,900
Total pool : $63,900
Tax Deducted @ 20 %::$12,780 ( Ubet deducts 20 % from total pool including jackpot carryover )
Net Pool :$51,120
Punters loss :$2,780
Do not worry Premium Players will bet on anything, regardless how piddling the size of carryover jackpots, to maintain their turnover thresholds and keep other punters out of the game.
