OK, do I need to verify CC, before I can put more funds into TAB account, and also it said when opening an account that it couldn't be verified electronically, so would have to do manually ?

So what do I actually need to do ?

Will go trawl the site, and look for answers myself  :p

Hi mate,

I tried to put some money into my account at the track the other day, when accessing the website on my phone, and when doing so, i seen the business hours message, and assumed, that meant mon - fri, and that I was going to have to verify the card or something, but after looking at it again, on my PC, it looks like business hours are 7 days a week, and also no need for verification  :/

I'll be interested as to how they do the old libary up.

  Where will they get all these extra pokies from?

  Surely Anna won't break more promises re no more pokie licences :mad:

Bubba, even though I live not that far away from it , I have never been to the Treasury Casino.
   
    Last time I was in that building was when I was a postie in the city in 1966.

   Been to the one down the Gold Coast a few times but not really the place for a minimum bets punter  :biggrin:

  A bit of a argument looming in how they are going to renovate the old libary building in William St.

From Tabcorp:

"
IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION FROM THE SINGAPORE TURF CLUB (STC)

 

Effective from 14th Jan 2011 the rules regarding the minimum dividend values for the Win and Place pools will change.

 

The existing minimum dividend value of $1.20 for the Win pool will change to $1.06, and the existing minimum dividend value of $1.00 for the Place pool will change to $1.02 "

Will actually be Jan 21 as there is a slight delay at the singapore end.

Rocket Man at $1.06 may still be tempting to some

POLICY AMENDMENT: it took 3 months

The folowing was posted in mid October --  in the meantime, I was 'officially' advised that Tabcorp did nothing wrong.


One can be sure that if this ( $1.20 v. $1.04) were to happen regularly the terms of the mingling deal would be changed.

...............only after a 'protest' was lodged did VIC TAB  do what it should have done from the outset -- and paid the $1.20.

For the future, if the VIC TAB money does not 'get on' in Singapore, for whatever reason, the rule should be that VIC TAB still pays the  dividend declared in Singapore.

I would be surprised if the Singapore Turf Club are changing the rules because of
anything that happens here.

Pete - I know your influence spreads far and wide but Singapore didn't change their rules because of your postings. They changed it because they wanted to - thus Vic tab and any other co-mingling partner follow their new rule.

Your other point is just not true. There was no 'protest' that caused the decision to pay the $1.20 in good faith - it was done because it was immediately recognized as the right thing to do in the circumstances.

In the future the exact same rules apply as last time - if the link is lost then local victorian rules not host rules will apply and $1.04 will be declared instead of $1.06

It was always about a commonssense response to a problem revealed -- not influence.

That said, irrespective of the link working or not, winning punters are entitled to a1.06 minimum if their bets are placed in the expectation  of being comingled.

Accordingly I consider to be 'wrong' the following -- - if the link is lost then local victorian rules not host rules will apply and $1.04 will be declared instead of $1.06

It should not be forgotten here that the comingling deal leaves local punters worse off because the takeout in Singapore is higher.

On TvN on Saturday Shane Templeton sought an explanation of the running double on races 1 & 2 on Mornington races on Friday.The winner of race one paid $1.30 & the winner of race two paid $28.10 but the running double paid $8.20. on a gross pool of $24,549.50 . Of course, Tabcorp will come back with the standard line, " we only payout on the number of units on the winning combination on the net pool', however this paltry dividend surely needs clarification beyond the normal spin.

On NSW on a pool of $2,127 it paid $49.50

Some pretty smart punter/s out there latched onto the winner of race two, but obviously had no idea as to 'betting to pool size' .

They dont need to explain anything.  If there are heaps of units on this bet type what else can it pay???  It pays on whatever demand there is for that combination simple!!!

Bubba will try and find out if there was any betting patterns of interest that led to the crappy running double dividend

I'm currently looking purchasing a Samsung Tab or the iPad for betting when away from home.  I used a Tabcorp iPad at Rosehill in the No 1 Club and the software was excellent even though it took me most of the day to work out.  My question is is this software available for both and perhaps for other brands in the future, obviously 3G will be required if wireless is not available free from the various metro courses around Australia.

I recall a few years ago was at Warwick Farm midweeker. Had $50 on a "this and the next" double (races 2 and 3 from memory. Both got up at something like 4's and 6's. Double paid $10 for a $500 return. Then realised that there was about $650 in the pool. Couda got a big divvie if I had $1 on it (ie: $500). Realised then that all ups were the way to go in future....or smaller bets

Obviously with the pool size mentioned above it was a different scenario, but looks as though someone had a big lash at the double. Like me at WF, not a "smart" punter

Relieved to learn I did have that Rubble in NSW. Although I suspect it was showing ~$100 on the final approximate.

However there is more to that story.

On Betfair the L2 winner Spirit of Many paid:

$48.49 WAP

$75 BSP (Staggering - and a big easer)

11 minutes before AST, I laid it @$48.

So the smartness of those Rubble Raiders has room for improvement.

Interestingly Spirit of Many is a Shelley Hancox Syndicated horse with at least 800 hundred owners including my brother. Obviously some members of the syndicate or stable knew more than others.

Looks to be spot on Walter aklthough it was a series of punters not just one person. The pool was high ($25k) compared to other running double pools on the day. There was around $60 placed on the straight running double 3/7. However there was a very high $180+ units on the combination placed on the combination through 3 and the field bets - by a string of punters that can only be described as a 'normal mix' (which makes even more sense given ianb's post re ownership of the horse).  These folks have squashed their divvie and an all up would have obviously been the go in this situation.

Maths seems dodgy.

240 into $24217.32 ~= $100

~~~= $80 (after rake)

~= 10 times actual dividend.
