How do the Favourite Numbers Win?
The Favourite Numbers, 1 through 30, are randomly
allocated by computer to a group of forty races due to be
run on Saturday. The remaining 10 races become the list
of substitute races. If the TAB 'favourite' wins the race, the
Favourite Number allocated to that race is a winning
number. The TAB 'favourite' is the runner with the greatest
value of win bets invested on it. The 'favourite' is
announced by the TAB just prior to the race.
If there are less than seven winning Favourite Numbers or
if no one selects seven winning numbers, then half the
payout pool jackpots to the next week and the other half is
paid to those with the next highest number of winning
Favourite Numbers. Systems entries receive multiple dividends.
In the case of the 'favourite' dead heating for first, the
number allocated to that race is still a winning number.
Abandoned and Postponed Races
If a race is abandoned or postponed, then the Favourite
Number allocated to it is reallocated to the first available
race from the list of substitute races. It is possible that this
race may have already been run.
If the favourite is scratched, the new favourite will be the
runner with the next highest value of win bets on it.
