Triactors added to WEG fractional betting menu

TORONTO, October 30 - Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) today announced it was 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 Greg Martin, WEG's Director of Wagering Operations. "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.
