That numbers are your odds (is it spelled like this?) of that horse to win the race.
1/6 means that such horse will eventually win 1 in every 6 races. 1/2 means that he will win 1 in every 2 races.

Your earning will also depend on this odds. If you bet on a 1/2 horse, then you will win twice your bet, and so on!

yes, e.g. a horse with 1/2 will more likely win than a horse with 1/12

BUT...

When that lower chance horse wins (and they do win) you earn a lot more if you have made a bet on this one smile.gif

yup, exactly.

the long shot green or purple actually.
people have won millions by betting alot
through trial and error, on green or purple.
the long shots that is. 1/12 - 1/11 .... etc.
i've won tons of money that way, but it's not
that exciting, at all. more like figuring out a trick.

indeed, get a savehouse near a betting shop, save, go to the shop, bet all your money on the 1/12 horse. if you win, congratulations with a lot of money, if you lose, reload the game...

You guys are dyslexic or something. It 12/1 or 6/1 not 1/12 or 1/6.
