    Posted: 28 Mar 2019 at 9:11pm
Some time ago, I was telling a friend about how much fun I was having taking a Quaddie every Saturday morning for the price of a coffee.

I'd take usually a couple of horses in each leg, or go one out and then stack another leg. Then set the bet amount to $5 and hope for the best.

Didn't win too often but occasionally I got close.

In 2017, the Herald Sun gave away coupons for a free $5 TAB quaddie bet.

So, do you want to try this?

The rules:

Take any combinations, ie; 2 in each leg, or 4 or 6 in each leg... or change it up.

You must spend a maximum of $5 only! So, flexi-betting is the way to go.

The person who wins the most from his/her quaddie is the winner!

Further information:

Note; the more horses you select, the less you will win because of the number of possible combinations you need to include in your flexi-bet. 

If you use the Quaddie section of your favourite betting company, you can test the Flexi percentage that you win. For example, 2 horses in each leg is 16 combinations and 31.25% of the win dividend.

However, if you add another 2 horses in the second leg for example, you now have 32 combinations and only 15.62% of the dividend.

To help us, please state the final percentage of the win dividend for your bet.

The percentage is calculated by dividing the $5 by the number of combinations.

For example, 2 horses in each leg: $5/16 *100 = 31.25%

The number of combinations is found by multiplying the number of horses in each leg. For example, for a quaddie with 4 horses in the first leg, 2 in the second, 5 in the third and 8 in the final leg, there are 4*2*5*8 = 320 possible winning combinations. This would lead to only 1.56% of the win dividend.

Entry format

For two horses in each leg, your entry would look something like this:

(3,5) - (4,9) - (2,14) - (4,18): 31.25%

Hard day to start on!

Bendigo
(3,5,10,18)-(8,9,10,13,16)-(2,5)-(13) (3 legs - missed out on Mystery Love)
$5 = 12.5%


Mystery Love was a $6 chance. The quaddie paid $3,137.10

Melbourne Quaddie: (1,3,12)-(2,8,10)-(2,3,4)-(2,3,4) (81x Combinations) = 6.2%

Only need 3 legs in Sydney.

Sydney Quaddie: (7)-(5,10,11)-(1,4,17)-(1,5,13) (27x Combinations) = 18.5%

Good luck!

Complete dogs breakfast last week, so lets see if we can get one at least.

Caulfield.

(1,3,14) - (3,6,7,8) - (2,6,14) - (1,3,5,8) = 3.4%

Randwick.

(1,7,10,11) - (2,5,7) - (2,4,10) - (5,6,9,18) = 3.4%

I know I'm a geek, but I've single-handedly coded a handy little calculator and inserted it into the article on Quaddie betting. Feel free to use (trial) this ground-breaking technological breakthrough in betting and wagering service from your village. Tongue
