Despite the fact that gambling effects all ages, classes and types of people, online sports betting is particularly growing in popularity these days. People are getting addicted to it and it has become part of their normal routine. An example of this is trifecta betting which is one of the most popular types of betting available just over a click. It can yield you impressive dividends in a short span of time without having to do much.
Trifecta betting has been around for several years now and there is no denying its growth in popularity. Gamblers got very high returns when trifecta was in its early days. However, now with the existence of more online betting sites such as BlueBet, and various others, the increase in the number of online gamblers has squeezed much of the fat from its dividends which can yet be as large as four digit figures.
Trifecta betting can be done on any racing event in which there are three or more runners. The gambler, also called punter, has to correctly select the first three place-getters. Suppose that you are betting over a horse race, in this article, so you need to select the horses that you think are going to end up achieving first, second and third positions in the race. You can even select multiple horses for a particular position but then the cost of the trifecta bet will go up which is calculated by multiplying the number of selections for each position.
Types of Trifectas
There are different types of trifectas such as single, box, standard, roving, flexi, and standout trifectas. In a box trifecta you can select the horses which you feel will achieve the top three positions in the race. Whereas in a standout trifecta, you need to select the horses you think will finish first, second and third in the race and for each of these positions you need to select minimum of two horses.
The simplest trifecta is single or one ticket trifecta, where you select for the first position the horse you think will come first, for second position the horse you think will come second, and for third position the horse you feel will come third. And your only chance of success in single trifecta is that the horses you have selected for these positions achieve them.
A flexi trifecta allows the punter to bet a certain percentage of a betting unit rather than the entire amount of the bet. These have enabled more people to take part in betting. On the other hand, a roving trifecta is one bet on a single ticket. You must select one runner as your banker along with a chain of other runners. For example, betting on a race of 6 horses, you choose horse number 2 to be your banker, you can choose horse numbers 1,3,4,5 and 6 as your other selections. This allows you to include three multiple trifectas on a single ticket.
