An Exacta bet is selecting the runners that will finish 1st and 2nd, in order, in a nominated race.

To increase your chances, you can take a multiple Exacta by marking more than one selection to finish first and/or second.

If all selections are entered into the first column, this creates an Allways Exacta, meaning your runners can finish in any order for the bet to be successful.
Exacta betting is available on all races covered by TABtouch.

Roving Banker

Roving Banker allows you to cover multiple combinations in one transaction by anchoring a selection as a definite placegetter. On an Exacta the selected Roving Banker must finish in the first 2 placings.

To place a Roving Banker;

  • Select the Roving Banker Option
  • Select a runner as the Roving Banker (RB) in the RB selection column
  • Select at least one more selection in the ‘With’ column to fill the remaining place

To be successful the selected ‘Roving Banker’ must finish 1st or 2nd whilst the ‘With’ selections must fill the remaining place between them.

Flexi Betting

Flexi Betting allows you to take virtually as many combinations in an Exacta 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.


If any runners selected in your Exacta are scratched, you will receive a refund for every eliminated combination. If the race is abandoned or postponed, all Exacta wagers will be refunded in full.

Dead Heats

Dead heats in either of the first two placings will result in more than one winning combination. As per standard dead heat rules, in the event of two dividends paid out on the same bet type, returns are calculated at 50% of the full dividend.


If the winning Exacta combination has not been selected, the net Exacta prize pool for that race will be carried over and added to the Exacta pool on another race to be announced by TABtouch.

Commission Rate

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

For nominated meetings where Exacta wagers are comingled into an international pool, the pool host’s commission rate structure and dividend calculation policy will apply.
