I do.

 

Man, I can't believe how stupid I can be sometimes.

 

I turned a $50 bitcoin deposit at Dimes into a few hundred betting sports so I figure I'd give the horses a try (again).

 

So I buy a Gulfstream past performances form online and login to the 5Dimes racebook.

 

I played a $42 pick 5 ticket at Gulfstream Park West Wednesday: 2 X 2 X 3 X 7 X 2 = $168 combinations at 25 cents each, races 4-8.

 

I get the 1st 3 winners, no heavy favorites and one 9-1 shot that beat a 3/5 shot. In the 5th race I have 7 of 9 horses. Why I didn't just spend the extra $12 and take the all I'll never know but I left out two horses in the 7th race, the #1 & #2. Of course the #1 horse wins and kills my tickets. Of course I have the next winner so I get the consolation of $17 7 times. Big deal. If I use an all in the 7th as I should have I cash over $2000. For a $50 bet.

I had a pick 5 at Remmington Park, less than two weeks ago. No one hit it, but I had it at 5 Dimes. The cheapest paying 4 out 5 came in. I had a 25 cent pick 5. There was about 27K in the mutual pool. I was pissed! Two horses, which i had, had 5 of 5. They didn't win.

Thanks for all of the replies fellas.

 

I have $600 left in my 5Dimes account. No doubt todays events have me on tilt and I'm 100% sure I will be betting the horses tomorrow trying to grab a big payout to make up for what I should have cashed today.

 

I only bet gimmicks, mostly Pick 3,4 &5's, superfectas and trifectas. It will be interesting to see how long $600 lasts  (not including my only pending wager on the under 5.5 in the late NHL game).

Damn. 

 

Didn't realize the option like you posted existed. Then again, I can only play play horses sparingly.

Until they can train chimps to ride the horses, I won't bet on them. It's a crooked sport with mathematics designed for a complete house edge.

 

You can't win long term betting on horses.

what if i get a 8% rebate (or promo) and 5% minimum payout (2.10) on huge favorites to show in 5 horse races?

 

are you telling me that a 1/9 favorite isn't going to show 87% of the time with only 5 horses in the race?  if so you are naive and ignorant

 

you have to be careful because places like betonline don't give their 7% rebate on anything paying 2.20 or less... but other places do

Not true. I can name at least 10 horse players that got booted from Vegas sportsbooks for betting into negative show pools.

Yep, dead after the 1st leg.

 

Gave back $150 of my $600. My experience the last two days will serve to curb my desire to bet horses (for a while).
