What is a Race Night?
A Race Night is a fun filled night of filmed racing, where your guests can bet on which animal they think may be race winners, and then if they are lucky, claim the prize money.
The night will include up to 8 races, involving either horses, trotters or PIGS. All our races feature 8 runners and are filmed at top courses, such as Ascot, Epsom, Newbury, Cheltenham, York, Chester and Doncaster, both on the flat and over the jumps.
At the beginning of each race your audience is invited to purchase tote tickets, which clearly state the race and the runner number. The price of the tote ticket is left to your discretion, but remember, the higher the tote ticket price, the bigger the payout on each race and of course, the more profit for you.
We use the ‘tote system’ to calculate the winnings, which basically means that money is collected in, a percentage is retained for funds if you require, and the remainder is paid out as winnings between the people with the winning tickets. Unlike a High Street bookmaker, odds are not offered in advance of the race, as it is not known how much money has been placed until the ‘tote’ is closed.
Selection is made from fictitious names on a race card, and horses are identified on screen by number only. When all bets have been placed, the ‘tote’ is closed and a member of the audience is invited to select one of the races.
As it is a purely random selection, no-one can possibly know what race or what animal will be running. The lights are then dimmed and the excitement begins as the film is shown and the horses, trotters or pigs race towards the finishing post.
When all the winners have claimed their winnings, the tote is re-opened for the next race and the fun starts all over again.
The atmosphere is electric and everybody gets involved. People really do enjoy the occasional flutter and the enthusiasm grows throughout the night. You'll see people who have never placed a bet before becoming very involved, cheering their animal along.
