Tipping

 

How do I get to the screen where I enter my tips ?

There are three ways to reach the Tip Entry screen.

 

1. To tip for a specific competition click the TIP button corresponding to the competition where you would like to tip on the My Competitions screen.

2. You can also enter the tipping screen for a specific competition by clicking the TIP NOW button at the top of the leader board.

 

 

 

 

How do I enter my tips ?

You need to enter a tip in each race for the tipping competition race meeting. The following screen explains the features of the screen and outlines what you need to do.

How often are prices updated ?

Prices are updated every 5 minutes and then every 30 seconds for runners within the last 5 minutes before a race. To see the updated prices simply click the Refresh icon above the 'Time to jump' heading.

Scoring

Tipping competitions are played over a pre-defined number of rounds (weeks). The number of rounds is determined by the Competition Manager when starting the competition. To tip you select a runner in each race as presented on the tip screen. Your score is calculated as a $50 win bet on your selection using the Victorian Tote price (where available).

e.g. If you selected a runner which won with Victorian Tote paying $4.60 win and $2.20 place then your score for that race would be ($50 x $4.60) + ($0 x $2.20) = 230.00

Your round score is the sum of scores received for each race in the competition race meeting.

Missed Tips

What happens if I miss a tip?

You receive no points for a missed tip.

 

What happens if I miss tips for a complete round?

No points are awarded to you if you miss all tips within a round.

 

What happens if my tip is scratched after I submit my tips ?

You are able to change your tip up to 2 minutes before the advertised start of the race. If you are unable to change your tip from the scratched tip to another runner in the race, you are automatically allocated the favourite of the race (i.e. the runner who has the shortest price according to the VIC TAB tote prices).
