What is Each Way betting?
Each Way betting, often displayed as E/W, is a form of horse racing bet that acts like an insurance if your horse doesn’t win, but comes in a high place. The bet works by splitting your wager between a Win bet and a Place bet. If your horse wins, you earn all your winnings. If the horse places 2nd, 3rd or sometimes even 4th or 5th, the second part of your bet pays out.
There are many Each Way betting tips that experts like to offer, but the important thing new punters must know is that an E/W bet doubles your stake, as you are effectively placing two bets. E/W betting is a great way to cover any doubts you may have on your horse winning outright – and when it’s a competitive field then this is often the best racing bet to make.
Unibet Multiples Explained
If you want to boost your odds and potentially win big payouts then multiple betting may be the way forward. The Unibet bet slip lets you add multiple outcomes onto one wager, which increases the odds and the risk. So, you could bet on three horses winning three different races, while betting another horse places in a race in Australia. If all your small bets win, you win your big multiple.
Punters love to get intricate with multiples and you can sometimes see bet slips with 10 or more selections. What’s great is that the Unibet sportsbook even lets you create a combination bet across sports – so you could bet on horse racing, football and tennis within one big wager.
