All bets on Greyhounds placed via the Website are placed on the Trap Number and not the named Greyhound. This is displayed on your bet confirmation. If a reserve dog runs all bets stand, but bets taken at Earlybird prices are settled at SP.
Payment will be made on the official result of races. Bets will be void in the event of no Starting Price being returned. William Hill reserves the right to declare void any bets where it considers there to be reasonable suspicion or evidence of unfair price manipulation.
Show prices/Early Bird prices:
Should a greyhound be withdrawn and a show price or Early Bird price has been taken, all bets will be settled at Starting Price. All bets nominating that selection either by name or trap number will be void if a price has been taken. Bets on remaining runners are settled at Starting Price.
Each Way Betting :
The place part of each-way bets in races of 5 to 7 runners will be settled at 1/4 odds for the first and second and in races of 8 runners at 1/5 the odds for the first, second and third. In races of less than 5 runners, the place part goes on to win. Place only bets are not accepted.
Any forecast which includes a non-runner will be settled as a Win Single on the remaining selection.
In the event of two or more greyhounds 'Dead Heating' for first or second place, separate dividends will be declared and paid to each qualifying forecast.
We accept forecast doubles and trebles. Forecast accumulators are not accepted.
Tricasts will be settled according to the Starting Price Computer Tricast returns for eligible races. The Tricast dividend is a computer-generated dividend based on the Starting Prices of all runners in a race. The Tricast dividend is declared to a £1 unit stake.
A Tricast containing a non-runner will be settled as a Computer Straight Forecast on the remaining selections in the order as given and in the case of two non-runners will be settled as a win single at Starting Price on the remaining selection.
In the event of two or more horses 'Dead Heating' for first, second or third place, separate dividends will be declared and paid to each qualifying Tricast.
Tricast doubles, etc are not accepted.
Tricasts are accepted at the following tracks :
Please note that any Tricasts placed on races not covered by the above will be settled as a Forecast.
- Belle Vue
- Hall Green
- Brough Park
- Perry Barr
- And all BEGS meetings.
Trap Challenge :
Prices are offered for each trap to win the most races at one selected meeting or alternatively at two selected greyhound meetings combined.
Re-Runs And Void Races :
- The Trap Challenge is unaffected by reserves, vacant traps, void races or meetings abandoned once they have started.
- In the event of one meeting not starting all Trap Challenge bets containing this meeting are void.
- If a race finishes as a dead heat each trap will receive a 'Half-Win' (3 way dead heat 'One Third-Win' etc).
- If two or more traps record the same number of wins, dead heat rules apply.
- Any Trap Challenge bet accepted after the 'Off' of the first race will be void win or lose.
- If the meeting(s) has been omitted and no qualifying price has been laid bets will stand for the first Trap Challenge to take place after the bet has been accepted.
Where a race is re-run all bets stand, however, where a Price has been taken, settlement will be at the Starting Price returned on the re-run. Should a race be declared void and not re-run, all selections will be treated as non-runners.
