Backyard Bookie Features

Backyard Bookie Thoroughbred Edition gives you just what you need for running your betting window at your race day parties this year...and at an economical price. 

Backyard Bookie Premium Edition does everything that the Thoroughbred Edition does, but more!   Use it year after year.  Use it to handle betting on your club's tournaments or other any other competitions.
 

General Features
These features apply to both the Premium and Thoroughbred Editions

Handles the most-popular types of bets!

Track win, place, show, exacta, trifecta, daily-double, pick 3, pick 4, pick 5, and pick 6 types of bets. Handles “boxed” exacta and trifecta bets effortlessly. Also handles “field” bets, where multiple racers are included on one bet.

Handles thousands of bettors and bets!

Depending on the available memory and disk space on your computer, Backyard Bookie can handle thousands of bettors and bets in one file.

Fully functional betting window!

Place or cash multiple bets in one transaction and settle up with the bettor in a few easy clicks of the mouse.

Display or print the current
betting pools and odds!
 

You can display the betting pools and the odds for win, place, show, exacta, and daily double bets. You can have the system automatically scroll through all of the available odds automatically – just like a race track tote board!

Calculate and display winning payouts...
or enter your own payout amounts!

Simply point-and-click to record the race results and, in seconds, the winning payouts are calculated and displayed. Payouts are calculated so that all money taken in is re-distributed to the winners or so that the specified holdback percentage for charity is kept in the bank.  Backyard Bookie also allows you to enter you own payout amounts! Make your payouts the same as the track's! Once payouts are determined, Backyard Bookie automatically determines what is owed for each bet taken in.

Flexible race card settings!

For each race on the race card, Backyard Bookie allows you to choose what types of bets are allowable, what the minimum bet will be, and how to round off payouts.

Allows the setting of the house “cut”!

For each race, you can specify a flat amount to be withheld from win bets, or a percentage of bets to be withheld from all bets. For charity events, simply hold back a percentage of the bets from the winnings as the charitable contribution amount!

Print tickets or track bets by bettor name!

You have your choice of printing out tickets as they are placed or recording the name or initials of the bettor for each bet.  Recording the names or initials allows Backyard Bookie to compute the total winnings per person, making the payout process a snap!

Track amounts collected and paid out!

As bets are placed and winnings determined, Backyard Bookie can keep track of what is owed to or due from each individual bettor.

Track information about bettors and copy this info from one file to another!

Backyard Bookie allows you to track a bettors name, e-mail address, phone number, and any other information that you might need. If you need to start a new file for the same group of bettors, you can copy over bettor information from any other Backyard Bookie file.
