History of horse racing betting

Often the construction of hippodromes is intended for horse racing and betting on races. Nowadays, horse racing is becoming popular not only in the West and Europe, but also in Russia.

But not all people are into horse racing for the sake of betting; there is a small percentage who love this sport. Whereas the main part of them is interested in the quick win: in the period from 40 to 300 seconds it is clear who will be the winner. Winning by betting on a successful outcome is much easier if you analyze the horse's previous races with the jockey.

A brief look back in history

Hippodromes appeared in ancient Greece. Originally they were designed for religious ceremonies, and the race had several horses in a harness. Much later, horse racing found its popularity among the royal nobility of the British Empire, and the event became known as the "Sport of Kings. Serious interest in the races came in the Middle Ages, at that time the horses were trained for war. Today, the hippodrome is a technically equipped stadium designed for horse racing. Both stallions of different breeds and different ages can take part.
In Russia and Europe hippodromes appeared only in the early 19th century. At that time the age of the horses, the width and length of the tracks were different everywhere, but with the development and interest in the sport modern standards began to appear.
The basis of hippodromes, due to which they still exist today, are totalizators or bookmakers' offices.

Features of betting shops

Bookmakers differ from betting shops in that bets are taken on the odds offered by bookmakers. That is, the size of the winnings will vary from the amount placed on the bet.

To find out your winnings, it is necessary to make a bet, for which the odds are assigned. If the bet turns out to be a winner, the amount paid is multiplied by the odds.

But bookmakers are not always interested in accepting bets on horse racing, because this sport is unpredictable and it is very difficult to guess the winner.

Features of the sweepstakes

Here, on the contrary, it is impossible to determine how much the winner will win. All because there is no information about the number of participants in the race and the number of bets on the various results.

Also, the player does not oppose the bookmaker, his opponent is the other participants in the bet. And the owner of the totalizator always remain in the black, as he earns a percentage of the bet. Only the person who made a wrong prediction can lose.

In a sweepstakes, however, you have to choose a bet, make a deposit and wait for the final result in the stands.

Since the hippodromes are not in all cities, fans of gambling can play in the "totoshnik" - this is the same totalizator, or rather an international network that takes bets on horse racing. In these establishments, one can watch the competitions that take place live. The player is also provided with a schedule of competitions, by which he can make a bet.
