  1. Dumb betting question.

    FF-win is final field (fixed odds) S-win is tote. I know other novice punters who have been confused by this on the tab.co.nz. Not sure why they wouldn't more clearly define it like every other bookmaker website.

  3. Abandonments - RNZ This Morning

  4. Maybe the govt can front up with a one-off payment to buy the future profits of sports betting from Racing that owns and funded the development of the TAB? (unlikely)

  7. Good Idea...thoughts...

    Free entry to the casino on a quiet night, whenever its packed you pay $20 at the door. Same with clubs and pubs. Racing should be no different. If the demand exceeds the space available then you charge. If not, all welcome!
  8. Tipster? You must be joking!

    The NRL has about 5 TV shows on Fox Sports alone, all full of banter and entertainment. Guess what the next generation are watching...

    Difference is Racenet is covered in corporate bookmakers, when was the last time you saw the TAB NZ throw anything at a domestic site... it's not hard to figure out how leakage can happen..
  10. Big announcement pending

    Did anyone notice the not so subtle dig at the codes?
  11. Racing Act Admendment Underway

    How much of sports betting is on international events (NBA, NRL, AFL, EPL). I don't know anyone who bets on domestic football but i sure know alot of money goes on the Euro/English comps. Why do domestic sports bodies that contribute nothing to overseas competitions get a cut? Surely if anyone was owed something it would be SKY TV who pays for most NZ punters to watch and bet on these events.

    Isn't the 138 on 100k figure the NZRB not NZTR?
