WEG Offers Fractional Triactor Wagering

On Tuesday, October 30, the Woodbine Entertainment Group announced it is adding 20-cent triactors to its live fractional betting menu through to the end of the year.

Beginning Thursday, November 1, racing fans can wager a minimum of 20 cents on triactors during Woodbine's live standardbred and thoroughbred cards.

Racing customers are already able to play 20-cent minimums on superfectas and multi-race 'Pick' wagers.

"Horseplayers have responded very well to the 20-cent option on superfectas and the 'Pick' bets," said WEG Director of Wagering Operations Greg Martin. "We've seen material increases in average pool sizes and prices.

"Starting Thursday, we'll offer 20-cent triactors for a trial period until December 31. If fans enjoy them, we'll make it a permanent betting choice."

A triactor, which asks fans to pick the top three finishers in a race, is one of the more popular bets in the sport.

Fractional betting allows bettors to play the races in pre-determined fractional amounts lower than the traditional $1 or $2 wagers.
