What is 'Each Way' betting?
‘Each Way’ betting is a bet type only available in horse racing. By selecting the ‘Each Way’ option on your race winner bet, you are placing two bets – one on your pick to win, and another one on your pick to ‘place’.
For a horse to ‘place’, it must finish in one of the first ranks, which will vary from race to race. ‘Place’ terms can be seen below:
2-4 runners - Win only
5-7 runners - 1/4 odds first and second-placed runners
8 + runners - 1/5 odds first, second and third-placed runners
In Handicap races, the following place terms apply:
12 + runners - 1/4 odds first, second and third-placed runners
16 + runners - 1/4 odds first, second, third and fourth--placed runners
Please note that the horse racing betting line-up might not be available in your country or on your device.
