A Double bet is selecting the runners that will win two nominated races, each referred to as a leg, at a selected meeting.

To increase your chances, you can take a multiple selections in any of the Double legs.

The Double races for selected meetings are nominated by TABtouch.

Flexi Betting

Flexi Betting allows you to take virtually as many combinations in a Double as you wish and you nominate the total amount you wish to spend.

TABtouch calculates the Flexi percentage of the investment you have placed by dividing the total spend by the number of combinations selected. The Flexi percentage must be greater than 1% for the bet to be allowed to place.

If successful, you will receive a percentage of the displayed dividend equal to the Flexi percentage of the bet you have placed.

Scratchings & Substitutes

If any of the runners in your Double bet have been scratched, your scratched selection will be replaced by the substitute runner for that leg. The substitute declared in each leg of the Quaddie is the runner with the greatest number of win units invested upon it.

TABtouch will declare the substitute as close to start time of the race as possible.

Abandoned or Postponed Races

If a leg of a Double is abandoned or postponed, all runners in that leg will be treated as winning. If both legs of a Double are abandoned or postponed, all wagers will be refunded in full.

Dead Heats

Dead heats in any legs of the Double will result in more than one winning combination. Each combination will have a separate dividend.


In the event the total investment on the winning combination is less than $0.50, part of the net Double payout pool on that race will be carried over to the next Double pool on the nominated meeting. If no person selects the correct combination, the entire net Double payout pool will be carried over.

If a carryover occurs on the last Double pool offered at the meeting, the jackpot will be allocated to a future meeting to be announced by TABtouch.

Commission Rate

For Double pools combined with SuperTAB or operated on a WA standalone basis, a commission rate of 20% is applicable.
