Read below for the full Dutching Guide:
Dutch betting allows a player to create a bet built from multiple individual wagers, with the aim being to achieve the same payout no matter what selected runner comes in. This gives players a powerful tool to spread their stake across multiple runners, gaining the same payout if any selection comes in. The AmWager dutching calculator lets you achieve this in two ways, by choosing your desired total stake amount or choosing the desired payout amount.
You can dutch on any win bet, exacta bet, quinella bet, or daily double bet that has odds by clicking on the “Dutch Cost” or “Dutch Payout” buttons on the strategy bar. If there are no odds available, the dutching buttons will be disabled.
A key concept when dutch betting is return on investment (profit). On AmWager, the ROI in the ticket area is based on the worst outcome of your dutch bet with your total stake subtracted. You may also click the button to see the full dutch details.
Below we have selected “DutchCost” of $20 on 3 runners. The dutching system calculates the bets should be split at $3 on the 2, $3 on the 3 and $14 on the 6. All wagers will give a payout roughly the same. If any of your wagers come in the worst you can do is a 222% profit.
You can also remove individual wagers from this view by clicking on the remove button.
Invalid wagers, such as those whose stake does not meet the pool minimum stake rules will given an error message in red. You may still submit the valid wagers if you choose. If you want to keep that wager then you will either need to remove other selections or increase your base stake/payout.
After submitting the wager it will appear in your Stacked or Active bets depending on your choice. At that point you can view the dutch details by clicking on the button on the dutch bet line.
In this view you can view current ROI, ROI at the time you made bet, your individual wagers and the status of those wagers. You may cancel the entire dutch wager by pressing the [Cancel] button on the wager line in the tree or you can cancel individual wagers from within the detail view.
