The Placepot is a pool bet on the first six races at a race meeting. Each race that makes up the Placepot is referred to as a leg. Selections must place in each of the six legs to win the bet. The bet must be placed before the start of the 1st leg (1st race).

The Place rules apply – see Place bet type for details. If because of insufficient runners there is no Place pool operating on a given leg of the Placepot then only the winner of the race will qualify as the placed horse.

Non-runners are replaced by the favourite, with the lowest race card number counting if there are joint or co–favourites.

A single line bet consists of one selection for each leg. Permutation bets are possible where more than one selection is made on one or more of the legs. To calculate the number of lines in a Placepot perm, multiply the number of selections in each leg. In this example there are 1 x 1 x 3 x 1 x 1 x 2 = 6 lines in this six leg bet.

Stakes: single–line bets are accepted with a minimum total stake of £1. Perms are accepted with a minimum stake per line of £0.10, provided a minimum of £1 is staked altogether.

If there is no winner of the Placepot, the pool minus deductions is carried forward and added to the next selected Placepot pool (conditions apply).
