Newsflash:TAB Correct Payout

Apologies for the error

TAB has amended the winning combinations and payouts for the Place Accumulator and Jackpot on the Jagersro race meeting today as a result of the incorrect tote favourite being declared in Race 6.

No 9 Jolie Danseur, who finished unplaced, was erroneously declared tote favourite when, in fact, the tote favourite was the winner, No 4 J.C.Royalty Boko.

There were two scratchings in the race and both qualified for the Jackpot and Place Accumulator once the tote favourite was corrected. All Jackpot and Place Accumulator winners have been paid the correct amounts.

TAB apologises for the error and will take appropriate disciplinary action following an inquiry.

    Shame, they have hardly any race meetings to figure out the Tote fav.

    Maybe they can get a job with the Trump administration when Phumelela close.

    Tab is asleep most of the time.
    I had to call in before because of incorrect payment into my telebet account. Did only happened once though .

    The most annoying is withdrawing money online.
    If you withdraw early morning, yesterday’s winnings, you can very lucky if it’s taken out of your account by midday .
    Paying into your bank is not as important as removing because one tends to spend the money far easier if it stays in the account.
    Also far less likely to deposit .

    They got a long way to go to be on par with other betting sites . If they ever get there.
    They did however institute a cancel your bet tag for online players. Pity it took a lockdown of the country to think of it.

    Lots more needed especially the fact that their “ new & improved “ site doesn’t allow you to see the betting on the tote for all races past and future on that day.
    After the race is run, it is good to look back, not to mention look forward to race still going to be run on the day. ALL other sites around the world including TAB Australia, New Zealand, America and Hong Kong offer this .
    Only TAB South Africa lagging behind.

    Then we have commingling of bets in major centers like Hong Kong.
    What does only win, place, swinger and quinella help. The real meat on the bone is the quartet and the Double and Triple Trio.
    To the average punter on the street it makes absolutely no difference whether the win pool is R 10 000 or 10 000 000.
    The chance of winning a triple trio which pays daily in excess of a million is a different story.

    Finally the delay of correct and final dividends till after the race is run is totally unacceptable.
    Stock exchanges around the World don’t have this problem .
    Hong Kong horse racing never changes their dividends.
    Why is this acceptable for UK, USA and Australia.
    Lame excuse there is a delay for changes to take place. Often so late, the race is run and jockey’s are dismounting already .

    South African TAB is being held up for run so badly it’s punters can never win.

  4. Ian says:

    Surely in this day and age, with computerization an integral component of all businesses, it must be possible to have a program written where the computer identifies the tote favorite in every race.
    To have this done by an employee is archaic and open to abuse. TAB is definitely not world class and all published results must be viewed with suspicion before proven otherwise.

  5. Gman says:

    This is nothing new just one of the tricks up their sleeves.How many times has the original fav been scr before or during loading then we have a horse that opened at 20/1 suddenly become the tote fav and then does not run a place for the excotic bets.
    When a certain exotic eg. Pick6 starts and the runners have been confirmed before the first leg is run all late scr and non runners should qualify for exotics regardless if they run or not.

    How many punters has had pick6 bankers and then you hear the horses are not striding out or has some sort of issue and it cant run(scr).Then you have a false fav for that specific race where the tote fav runs a solid 4th.
    70% of the time this would happen from the 4th leg of the exotic onwards.

  6. Aubsen says:

    I wonder how is it possible for them to declare the wrong tote favourite when they take forever to post the results of a race that has just run,not mentioning paying out on the said race.PATHETIC


    Aubsen, that’s exactly why people have abandoned Phumelela for the open bet.

    Good on you, Sir.

    This type of example that you so aptly have commented on, is one of a myriad high school errors that the customer has had to swallow for years

    Wise guy, Bernhard Kantor… people are spitting Phumelela out.
