Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR CONDUCTING PARI-MUTUEL WAGERS
(FR) PROCEDES ET SYSTEMES POUR EFFECTUER DES PARI-MUTUELS
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and systems of conducting wagers, such as pari-mutuel wagers. In one exemplary embodiment an event, such as a horse race, dog race, a combination of races, etc., is identified for which a plurality of bettors may each place at least one wager. Preferably, the racing wager method comprises the steps of: (i) providing a bettor with a selection from among a plurality of runners at four races; (ii) accepting a wager from the bettor, said wager comprising (iia) a monetary amount, and (iib) the bettor's selection of runners for the first, second, and third place finishers for each of the four races; and (iii) providing monetary value to a bettor whose wager meets a predetermined wager success criteria.
(FR) L'invention porte sur des procédés et sur des systèmes visant à effectuer des paris tels que des pari-mutuels. Selon un mode de mise en oeuvre de l'invention, on identifie un événement, tel qu'une course hippique, une course de lévriers, un combinaison de courses, etc., sur lequel plusieurs parieurs peuvent chacun placer au moins un pari. De préférence, ce procédé de pari sur des courses consiste à: (i) fournir au parieur une sélection de plusieurs participants à quatre courses; (ii) accepter un pari du parieur, ce pari comprenant (iia) une somme monétaire et (iib) la sélection par le parieur des participants finissant à la première, deuxième et troisième place pour chacune des quatre courses et (iii) remettre au parieur une valeur monétaire dont le pari correspond à un critère de succès prédéterminé.
