Wager Modifiers

Modifiers allow a patron to more efficiently make a set of wagers. Depending on the patron’s otb wagering strategy one or more modifiers may make sense. In particular, for Win, EX, QU, and DBL wagers the Dutching modifier can give significant advantages in money management. AmWager is committed to giving the player the best tools in the industry and that includes custom wager modifiers that no one else has. AmWager is a pioneer in custom modifiers and plans to continue that trend in the future.

Straight Bet (Traditional)In a straight bet wager the patron selects one runner per leg in the order they believe the runners will finish.
Example: Trifecta 4/1/7 means the 4 must come in 1st, the 1 2nd and the 7 in 3rd.
Wheel (Traditional)In a wheel wager the patron selects the runners they believe may finish in each position. This allows patrons to wager multiple straight bets at the same time.
Example: Trifecta 4/1,7/1,7 means the 4 must come in 1st, the 1 or 7 must come in 2nd and the 1 or 7 in 3rd.
Straight Bet (AmWager.com)AmWager combines both the traditional Straight and Wheel bets into a single modifier. Simply selecting more than one runner per leg will automatically turn it into a wheel bet.
Box (BX)The Box modifier allows you to select the runners you think will finish in the top positions. The box bet will give every possible permutation of the runners you select. A box bet must have at least as many runners as there are legs in the bet. A trifecta box must have 3 or more runners.

Example: Trifecta Box (BX) 1,4,7 will produce the following 6 straight bets:

1/4/71/7/44/1/7
4/7/17/1/47/4/1
Key Wheel (KW)A Key wheel modifier allows a player to quickly select their best picks in the first and second leg of any pool with at least 2 legs. In any pool the 2nd leg of a Key Wheel bet is copied to all remaining legs. The first leg of the wager will move down each position but other legs will not rotate.

Possible Trifecta Leg Positions:

Leg 1 / Leg 2 / Leg 3Leg 2 / Leg 1 / Leg 3Leg 2 / Leg 3 / Leg 1


Example: Trifecta Key Wheel (KW) 1,4/6,7:

Will give the following “Wheel” bets by moving the legs

1,4/6,7/6,76,7/1,4/6,76,7/6,7/1,4


Which in turn yields the following 12 straight wagers:

1/6/71/7/64/6/74/7/6
6/1/76/4/77/1/67/4/6
6/7/16/7/47/6/17/6/4

 

Key Box (KB)Key Box modifier allows a player to quickly select their key picks of most single race pools with at least 2 legs. The system will give every possible permutation of the leg positions and every possible permutation of the runners within each leg. If the same runner is selected in multiple legs it will result in duplicate bets.

Possible Trifiecta Key Box leg positions are:

Leg 1 / Leg 2 / Leg 3Leg 1 / Leg 3 / Leg 2Leg 2 / Leg 1 / Leg 3
Leg 2 / Leg 3 / Leg 1Leg 3 / Leg 1 / Leg 2Leg 3 / Leg 2 / Leg 1


Example: Trifecta Key Box (KB) 1/4,7/4,6,7:

Will give the following “Wheel” bets by moving the legs:

1/4,7/4,6,71/4,6,7/4,74,7/1/4,6,7
4,7/4,6,7/14,6,7/1/4,74,6,7/4,7/1


Which in turn yields the following 24 straight wagers:

1/4/61/4/71/7/41/7/6
1/4/71/6/41/6/71/7/4
4/1/64/1/77/1/47/1/6
4/6/14/7/17/4/17/6/1
4/1/76/1/46/1/77/1/4
4/7/16/4/16/7/17/4/1


Power Box (PB)The Power Box works nearly identical to the Key Box modifier except AFTER the Key Box is calculated it removes any duplicate wagers.

Keeping the same example as above

Example: Trifecta Power Box (PB) 1/4,7/4,6,7

Will results in the following 18 straight bets (notice the removed bets are crossed out)

1/4/61/4/71/7/41/7/6
1/4/71/6/41/6/71/7/4
4/1/64/1/77/1/47/1/6
4/6/14/7/17/4/17/6/1
4/1/76/1/46/1/77/1/4
4/7/16/4/16/7/17/4/1


Dutch CostDutching is an AmWager custom modifier that allows you to maximize your possible return on investment.
In a Dutch Cost, you tell the system the total amount of money you want to spend on the wager and it divides it up so that if your wager wins, you will make the same amount of money on any combination. This allows you total control over cost and payout and thus gives you much more predictable returns.

For a full walkthrough of the Dutching calculator and how it works please see our advanced guide here.

Dutch PayoutIn a Dutch Payout you tell the system how much money you wish to win on your combinations and it calculates the amount you need to spend to create that payout on all of your combinations.

For a full walkthrough of the Dutching calculator and how it works please see our advanced guide here.

Depending on modifier requirements not all modifiers may be available for all pools. (i.e. Multi-Race pools such as pick 6 only allow straight bet wagering). Pools with over 2 legs do not allow Dutch wagering (pool data is not available from pari mutuel tote systems).

AmWager's goal is to provide the best online pari mutuel wagering experience there is. Giving you the tools and knowledge you need to suceed is part of that goal.
