Here's how your record is calculated: If you pick a winner that
pays $8.40, you have $6.40 in profit added to your account: $8.40
minus the original $2 bet. If you don't pick a winner, you have
$2.00 subtracted from your account. So, let's say you pick 4 races,
and have only one winner that pays $8.40. Take the $8.40 profit,
then subtract the $8 bet on the 4 races. You would show a PROFIT
of $0.40.
The easy way to check if your record is correct is to add all the
payoffs of winners you have selected. Then multiply the number of
races you played by 2 in order to get the "amount bet."
Subtract the "amount bet" total from the "payoff"
total, and that should be your profit or loss.
If you think your record is incorrect, please make sure you understand
this carefully. The emails we like least are the ones from people
who are indignant that their record is wrong—they think the
total is incorrect. Invariably, they are wrong. So please double
check all calculations. Thanks!
