More Than An Illusion?

Gold Circle invited to introduce it on July Day

While others have walked this road before him without much acknowledgement or success from the racing gods, Azzie writes in the Sporting Post Mailbag about a new bet idea. He is clearly under no illusions!

It was my long cherished wish to inform you of a very beautiful new exotic bet that you can introduce to the public.

The bet  will be called ‘Illusion’.

The bet would consist of 10 (ten)legs.The unit will be 10 cents.The minimum bet could be 10 (rands).

There would be no fractional betting.

A punter will be required to select a winner in all 10 legs of the Illusion to reap a massive dividend.

How many times have we heard a punter complain that he went one out  in the jackpot or pick six.

This doesn’t have to be the case anymore.

Since sixty percent of the pool of the illusion will be paid to the winners of all ten legs.

The balance of forty percent of the pool will be paid to any punter who selects the winner of any nine legs.Hence no punter can ever be one out again.

Obviously the punter who selects all ten winners will also collect a dividend for selecting winners of any nine legs.

People are always talking of new type of bets.It is my firm belief that the “Illusion” would become the most popular bets of all.

I sincerely hope that you like my idea and Gold Circle will be the first to introduce the”Illusion ” on July day.

Sir wish you can recall the slogan.

” I bet you 10 cents you can’t catch the quartet ”  We can replace quartet with “illusion”  Another possible slogan , “I bet you 10c you will never be one out again”
