Dividends

All dividends are declared for $1, and 50 cent bets entitle you to half the dividend.

On which Races can I have a Quartet?

Quartets are available on selected races as publicised by the TAB.

Scratchings

If any of the runners in your bet have been scratched, you will receive a refund for every eliminated combination. For example, if you only select four runners, all combinations are eliminated when one is scratched and your refund will be the entire value of the bet. In bets containing more than four runners you will only receive a refund for those combinations in which the scratched runner is featured. You will also receive a full refund if the nominated race is abandoned or postponed.

Jackpots

In the event the total investment on the correct winning combination is less than $0.50, part of the net Quartet payout pool on that race will be carried over to another race to be announced by the TAB. If no person selects the correct winning combination, the entire net Quartet payout pool will be allocated to another race to be nominated by the TAB.

Dead Heats

Dead heats in any of the fi rst four placings will result in more than one winning combination. Each combination will have a separate dividend. For example, if runner 1 wins the nominated event, runner 2 fi nishes second, runner 3 fi nishes third and runners 4 and 5 dead heat for fourth, a Quartet dividend will be paid on both combinations 1.2.3.4 and 1.2.3.5. The net Quartet payout pool is split with half allocated to each winning combination. In the event of a dead heat where one Quartet combination is selected and one is not, for example a customer selected 1.2.3.4 but no person had selected 1.2.3.5, the pool is then split with half allocated to the combination 1.2.3.4 and the other half of the net pool would jackpot.

Commission Rate

A commission rate of 20% is deducted from gross Quartet investments.

Pooling of Quartet

Quartet pools currently operate as a WA stand alone product.

Flexi Betting

Flexi Betting allows you to take virtually as many combinations in a Quartet as you wish and you nominate the total amount you wish to spend. The TAB calculates the Flexi percentage of the investment you have placed by dividing the total spend by the number of combinations selected.

The Flexi percentage must be greater than 1% for the bet to be allowed to place.

If successful, you will receive a percentage of the displayed dividend equal to the Flexi percentage of the bet you have placed.
