Video: How to increase your odds of winning at Ascot with Paddy Power

by Paddy Power Admin | June 17, 2013

Paddy Power won a prestigious ‘innovation in sports betting‘ award last week. It’s down to stuff like this, Combined Horses.

It’s a tech feature on which lets you lump a load of horse bets together. It increases your chances of winning by giving you one set of combined, shorter odds for those multiple selections. Think of it as a super horse, or Horse of Steel.

Our tech team spent months developing Combined Horses for you guys (in between drool-laden debates on the merits of lithium-ion batteries and the unexplained subtext between Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us).

Anyway, watch the video for a 53-second run-through to pimp your Ascot betting experience.

Combined Horses essentials…

  • On the ‘Combined’ section of the racecard you can add and remove up to four horses (in larger fields) and Paddy will give you a single price.
  • By adding that to the bet slip it becomes one selection so you just need one stake. If any of your gee-gees romp home then you’re a winner at the combined price. Happy days.
  • The combined feature is available on the day of the race when the markets are priced-up in the mornings.

    There is one problem with your combined bets, and that is I have to work for a living and have no time to place bets on the day of the race. It is a real bugbear that I sometimes have to take an unknown starting price just because I fancy a certain horse and you dont price the race up until the day.

    Regards Paul.

    P.S. Congrats on sole power

    Combined horses is an interesting idea but not so good if only allow punters to bet on single races – should be allowed to do multiple races so that for example the punter can do a treble and have two chances in each of three races.

    Thanks for the comment Tim. People are certainly using Combined Horses more during Ascot but I will take your points and throw them at the product team at Power Tower and see what they think. Bests, Paul.
