Placing Your Wager
When you wish to place a bet on a particular horse(s) to run in a particular race, at a particular racetrack, on a particular date, you may do so by contacting our sportsbook, Actionbets.com, on line, or by phone.
When you place a wager, online, you must be aware of the types of horse race bets, explained earlier, and the following betting rules:
- Actionbets.com accepts only those types of wagers offered by the various racetracks in their official programs. This means that if we happen to offer a wager, for any reason, which is not being offered by any racetrack, any such wager taken will be deemed to be no action (invalid). In such an event, Actionbets will provide a refund.
- Actionbets.com accepts, online, only those wagers involving the running of thoroughbreds.
- Actionbets.com requires a minimum $2.00 on any online horse race wager.
- Actionbets.com accepts an online maximum of $200.00 on any exotic wager i.e., Daily Double, Exacta, Trifecta etc.
When you place a wager by phone, you will be in contact with our call center. The wagering process is similar to that covered in online wagering. Again, you must be aware of the types of horse race bets, explained earlier, and the following betting rules:
- Actionbets.com accepts, by phone, all types of wagers on horse races, consistent with Rule 1. above, concerning wagers made online.
