Below you'll find the payoffs on a $2 win ticket. Here's how you can figure out your payoff: Lets look at the first odds on the chart (1-10). Multiply your bet amount ($2) by the first number in the odds (1). Then divide that number by the second number in the odds (10) and then add your bet amount to the total to get your payoff ($2X1=2, 2/10=.20, .20+$2=$2.20)
HOW TO COLLECT (ON TRACK)
Once the race is declared official, take your winning wager to any mutual window. At that point you can decide to collect the full amount of your winnings or wager back all or part of it on upcoming races. If you are unsure of whether you've won, bring your ticket to any window to have it checked.
Avoid cashing your ticket 5 minutes before any race as many people wait until the last few minutes before a race to place their wagers, and cashing your winnings will slow the process.
