- 11. Jockey Challenge
- Jockey Challenge bets are available on selected meetings on a 'Win Only' basis.
- The winning jockey, is the rider who accrues the most points based on the 3-2-1 system where the Jockeys receives 3 points for a winning ride, 2 points for finishing second and 1 point for finishing third.

- If any Individual Jockey listed in the market does not take part in at least one (1) ride for the meeting, all wagers on the Jockeys challenge for that meeting will be cancelled and monies refunded.
- For wagers on any Jockey Challenge to stand, all races scheduled for that race meeting must be run and correct weight declared. All bets will be cancelled and monies refunded if the meeting is postponed, abandoned or any race is declared a 'no-race' by stewards, unless it is determined that a jockey has an unassailable lead, in which case all bets stand.
- 12. Racing Exotics
- All Elitebet Racing exotics are paid on winning combinations at the dividends declared by the Victorian TAB (STAB) (Thoroughbreds, Harness and Greyhounds).
- In the event of a jackpot, the Elitebet dividend is calculated by taking the Victorian TAB (STAB) Jackpot and dividing it by the number of $1.00 winning units. Where the total of winning units held by Elitebet is less than one, the flex % held is multiplied over the jackpot amount to determine the dividend.
- In the unlikely event that the location where the wager is struck is not covered by the Victorian TAB, the dividend will be paid at the lower of either of the other two major Australian TAB's.
- Notwithstanding maximum win limits detailed in section 9, Elitebet reserves the right to limit total payout to any individual(s) on any exotic bet type. If the total Elitebet payout on any bet type exceeds the Victorian TAB tote pool, Elitebet reserves the right to limit the total payout to clients to the amount of the Victorian TAB pool on that particular exotic bet type.
- In the event of a Dead Heat for any of the place getters, there will be as many dividends as there are correct order combinations as declared by the Victorian TAB (STAB).
- Elitebet operates on the following Exotics;
Quinella A Quinella is when two runners are selected to place first and second in any order. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the combination stands and the wager re-calculated without the scratched runner. Exacta An Exacta is when two runners are selected to place first and second in the correct order. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the combination stands and the wager re-calculated without the scratched runner. Trifecta A Trifecta is when three runners are selected to place first, second and third in the correct order. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the combination stands and the wager re-calculated without the scratched runner. First Four A First Four is when four runners are selected to place first, second, third and fourth in the correct order. If a selected runner is declared a 'non-runner' or scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the combination stands and the wager re-calculated without the scratched runner. Quaddie A Quaddie is when the winners are selected in four consecutive races listed on the Quaddie Race card.
