    Always loved horse racing and I decided to open an online account with a offer match... $100 and match $100.. nothing big just wanted to get back in touch with horse racing. After messing around with a few $1,$2, $4, $6 bets I am happy with my account and betting online.. The match money gets subtracted on a win and you do not get that bet back on your winnings... Just like Free Play. SO! now.. I am thinking of trying to treat it like freeplay and convert it to $$$.. instantly it comes to mind to bet a place bet on the favorite... and that worked.. Anyone have any other thoughts???

    I don't know. Id bet as normal as I would.

    I read somewhere that favorites win like 35 to 40% of the time... so isn't like a video poker conversion

    I'd keep your betting strategy, stick to your handicapping. Those win, place, show bets aren't sexy, but they carry the lowest takeout which matfers over time.

    Once you get salty at picking winners, move to Exactas and,Trifectas. Then, when you're really feeling it, move to pick 3s and the occasional pick 4.

    I play pick 6s, but I don't recommend them usually because the track takeouts are massive. Even I'm not playing them much any more except for at Sam Houston because,of their low takeout.

    Most ADW's require you to bet your $100 deposit within 2 weeks. After that they deposit your bonus the next day. When I opened a new account I mostly bet 4 dollars on a horse to show. If my bet won I would parlay it to show on another horse. If the first horse paid 6 bucks to show , and the second bet lost, no big deal because I would have used up $16 towards the $100 bet requirement to get the bonus and I would only have lost $4. The goal is not to lose the entire $100 before they match your deposit. NYRA bets is the only online site that does not allow show betting bets towards the bonus.

    Wow.. So I open my account (TVG) and get the "Winter" signup offer on deposit 100 get 100. I cant figure out how to make the deposit after I made my account so I call. them. I get a rep who say its all ok just make the deposit. I said there is no place to enter the promo code. he said he would then have someone above him verify this and he linked a code to my account. I get a call from someone else and they verify that they have linked a code to my account that will appear as soon as I make my deposit. I Finally figure how to make the deposit and BOOM!.. I now have not 1, but 2 100 promo deposits. I end up with 300 in my account to start.. got to play it all thru before any of it can be cashed… First WIN!!!!!!

    Well...… It has been a fun week of online horse racing gambling. Since I did have a good amount of match play I really wanted to convert it to real money.SO I adapted a strategy. I am used to gambling at one track so I picked Gulfstream. They had 6 different handicappers online and jockey/trainer/meet stats.. I mostly bet on the favorite or 2nd favorite and place a win/place/show bet .. but I doubled up the show bet. Amazing how may favorites or 2nd choices com in 1,2 or 3 (this time, I know). I was able to convert the free play into real cash. started with their 200 and my 100 and ended today at 514.25 just took out the 300 and now have 214.25 to grow more accustomed to online horse racing... TOOOOOO MANY OPTIONS.... I am sooooo used to playing one track...
