  1. All TopSport Racing exotics are paid on winning combinations at the dividends declared by the Victorian TAB (STAB) (Thoroughbreds, Harness and Greyhounds).
  2. In the event of a jackpot, the TopSport dividend is calculated by taking the Victorian TAB (STAB) Jackpot and dividing it by the number of $1.00 winning units. Where the total of winning units held by TopSport is less than one, the flex % held is multiplied over the jackpot amount to determine the dividend.
  3. In the unlikely event that the location where the wager is struck is not covered by the Victorian TAB, the dividend will be paid at the lower dividend displayed by the other two major Australian TAB's.
  4. Notwithstanding maximum win limits detailed in section 9, TopSport reserves the right to limit total payout to any individual(s) on any bet type. If the total TopSport payout on any bet type exceeds the Victorian TAB tote pool, TopSport reserves the right to limit the total payout to clients to the amount of the Victorian TAB pool on that particular bet type.
  5. In the event of a Dead Heat for any of the place getters, there will be as many dividends as there are correct order combinations as declared by the Victorian TAB (STAB).
  6. TopSport operates on the following Exotics;
    QuinellaA Quinella is when two runners are selected to place first and second in any order. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the combination stands and the wager re-calculated without the scratched runner.
    ExactaAn Exacta is when two runners are selected to place first and second in the correct order. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the combination stands and the wager re-calculated without the scratched runner.
    TrifectaA Trifecta is when three runners are selected to place first, second and third in the correct order. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the combination stands and the wager re-calculated without the scratched runner.
    First FourA First Four is when four runners are selected to place first, second, third and fourth in the correct order. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the combination stands and the wager re-calculated without the scratched runner.
    QuadrellaA Quadrella is when the winners are selected in four consectutive races listed on the Quaddie Race card. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be transferred to the substitute favourite as declared by the Victorian TAB (STAB).
  7. FLEXI BETTING allows you to take a Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta, First Four or Quadrella at an outlay to suit your own budget. This way you can have multiple selections for a smaller outlay. Simply make your selections and nominate the total amount you wish to spend on your bet. Your bet will cost whatever you choose ? and if you win you will receive a percentage of the full $1 STAB dividend.
    For example, let's say you wish to box five runners in a Trifecta. This bet would normally cost $60 for a $1 unit. If you decide you want to spend $15, that's all it will cost.
    $15 represents 25% of a full $1 unit (total cost of $60), meaning if successful, you will receive 25% of the full $1 STAB Trifecta dividend. Thus, if the winning Trifecta dividend is $200 for $1, you will collect $50.
    The minimum wager for Flexi Betting is $1.
15. Athletics
  1. Betting on the winner of an event is offered on an "All-In" basis. No refunds will be given for non-starters or for competitors who retire or are disqualified mid-meet.
  2. All bets will be paid on the official result as per the podium presentation. However, if a protest occurs and the official results change inside of 24 hours, then the event will be re-settled. No doping cases will be considered and as such, the result available 24 hours after the event will be deemed binding regardless of further protests or changes to the official result.
  3. A participant that is disqualified due to an infringement (eg False Start) will be deemed to have taken part in the event.
  4. For head-to-head match-ups, both competitors must start the event.
16. Australian Rules Football (AFL)
  1. Payouts are based on the official declared result. Any extra time played is included for betting purposes. For matches without extra time, a draw is always included for margin betting and any bets placed on either team to win by a margin will be considered losing bets in the case of a draw. In these matches, any bet placed on either side at the head to head option is paid in accordance with the 'dead heat rule' ie Half Face Value of the Ticket.
  2. When a match is abandoned or postponed, and played within 7 days of the original scheduled date, all bets stand. Once the 7 days have expired, all single bets are void and wagers refunded. Any MultiBet will be recalculated to exclude that leg.
  3. For all statistical based markets (ie Top Goal Scorer, Most Disposals etc), statistics will be taken from the AFL website (www.afl.com.au) for payout purposes.
  4. Any bet on a player is refunded if they are not in the final 22.
  5. All bets stand regardless of venue change.
  6. In the event of a finals match which includes extra time, all markets are paid after the extra time period, except for Margin betting (where the draw is an outcome) and HT/FT doubles.
