Just when we thought there could be nothing left to try us, Tattsbet have started the DOUBLE TRIO bet.

It's operating on the last two at Sunshine Coast today.

I doubt there'll be enough in the pool to cover the expected/deserved divvy.

Let's see how things go.

Did you have a go DD?

I reckon they need to promote the cost of multiples a bit more. eg Take 4 runners in each leg and for a total investment of $1 you have the divy for 6.66%  Take 5 in each leg and for $10 total you get 10% of the divy.

Not yesterday, Wenona.  I didn't give it a thought and wouldn't have gone too well.  Maybe had R7 covered.

I did try $10 at SC last week and got 1-2-4 into 1-2-3.  rant

Seriously, I doubt this will be a winner for Tatts.  Whatever goes in there will be money cannibalised from other pools.

I think the TRIPLE TRIO is the big one on HK, is it not?

I wish they'd let me die in peace.

Out of interest, the TRIO was the forerunner of trifectas in Oz.

I think some States ran both, until the wiseheads running TABs went for the TRI alone.

Personally, I'd see value in running BOTH. Great Idea

If you already have trifectas, why would you bother offering a trio as well.
With fractional betting anyone wanting a trio can just whack on a box trifecta for the same result.

I want a trio because they're a lot cheaper.

Like saying we have EXACTAS so get rid of QUINELLAS.

Punters are far more disposed to QUINELLAS - like about twice as much.  Great Idea

Yes, quinellas were well established for very many years before Exactas were introduced.
I never understood why they bothered to introduce Exactas.
However, I don't complain; no skin off my nose, I just don't take Exactas.

You sound like a TRIO man, Lert.  Great Idea

Just on Exactas, in the days when most punters were at the track, Es were run as FORECASTS.  That's going back 50 years I'd reckon.

As we know, in HK, the fans go craaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy over the Qs.  Shrug

Both options were offered in WA up until the early 90's.

They called the trio a tierce but it had very small pools and was discontinued.

The triple trio in Hong Kong is popular I think because of big jackpots on  a regular basis.

However hard to compare what would happen here when you consider that their quinella place (our any 2 or duet) is
the most popular form of betting there but has not proved very popular here.

No one has mentioned the TAB Takeout but I would guess it's of the 20-25% variety.These guys will try any screwy gimmick just so long as they can get their oversized % -Pathetic!

The trio, as described here forces one to box selections. And boxing is not normally seen as a valid betting method by professionals.

Not true  in this situation.  Smart punters can still find relative value when boxing is the only option. In actual fact, if the pools are big enough the professionals have a bigger edge in this bet type with boxing being mandatory.

The calculation to work out the "true odds' is slightly more complicated so the pros edge is bigger. That is why the sydicates get so heavily involved in triple trio in Hong Kong.

I've tried this bet for the first time.
Selected 6 horses in MR7 & MR8.
Cost $12
Has given me 3% of the div, whatever that is.  unsure

Last week it paid around $10,000 so I'm hoping for a $300 return.

Missed it  tears  Got 4 placing out of 6 which is not a pay out.
Div $178,930 with a jackpot of $13,419.
Pool was $55,915.
I'm guessing a 20% take-out, so $44,732 of which 70% won by punters & 30% jackpotting.

This paid $93,390 for last 2 races in Syd on Sat. (Pool was $104,597)

Not sure I quite understand the div as there was only 1 outsider of the 6 placings.
Bull Point came from tailed off in Race 7 to zoom home for 3rd spot.

Am I reading this wrong or was there a jackpot also involved?
