Soccer Bets Get The Boot

Rationalisation of menu

TAB has axed three soccer bets with immediate effect – Soccer1, Soccer 2 and Soccer SCORE.

None of the three bets gained significant traction in the soccer betting market and TAB has decided to stop offering them in order to rationalise its soccer betting offering ahead of the launch of two new exciting soccer bets.

Details of the new bets will be released shortly.

Racing Roulette, in which each runner in a race is allocated to one of three colour groups, is also being discontinued with effect from next week.

Santa Anita Racecourse in California launched Racing Roulette last year and Phumelela followed suit in January with the bet principally aimed at casual and occasional racegoers and punters on major racedays.

Unfortunately the bet has gained minimal traction on big or normal racedays and is consequently being dropped.

    Unable to comment about the soccer bets as I never bothered to investigate them but if they were anything as stupid and insipid as Racing Roulette then I can see why they have been canned.

  2. Leon Smuts says:

    Understanding clients and perhaps even more importantly prospective client preferences and what makes for a good product for both client and operator is such a neglected part of horse racing development. This single aspect can make a world of difference to creating new and renewed interest by combining the right elements for initial, regular and long term participation. It’s tragic that racing offers no products specifically developed for maximum enjoyment as these would make marketing of the sport so much easier and more effective. Racing is a growing dinosaur in terms of offerings and thinking and needs a complete overhaul in especially the product department if it is to be taken seriously as either an entertainment or betting proposition.

  3. Nico says:

    Cannot agree more about Racing roulette. What a trashy idea. Rather play a match bet with the bookies where two horses and involved and the payout would probably be similar

  4. Vinsesh says:

    Makes sense if they not generating revenue however it would have made more business sense not to pump 16 million into the futsal league. Money wasted. 16 million could have been used in a more sensible manner

  5. Lehlohonolo says:

    It’s better for Racerouletts to be discontinued cause it didn’t pay it was gaining from us(punters)
    Commenting on soccer 1&2 It’s a same thing nexttime when you came up with a thing came
    With a thing which will benefit both parties

  6. Philip Goldberg says:

    Leon Smuts sums it up well. The silly games we would have played in the 70;s & 80’s. Bets need to be designed for modern day. And when designing a bet, focus needs to be made on making winners. If every non racing newby left the races on a big day with R100 more than he came with, he’d be hooked in some sort of way.
