The Pick 4 Horse Racing bet functions exactly in the same fashion as the Pick 3 bet, except the player is choosing the winning horse in 4 consecutive races. While the Pick 3 option is fairly common for most tracks, the Pick 4 alternative may not be available in every instance.
Remember that the inherent difficulties in getting every single Win position right in a Pick 4 bet are more than balanced by their very impressive payouts. The standard minimum cost of the Pick 4 bet type is $2 US but, $1 Pick 4 bets are also sometimes available.
Pick 4 Example:
Evangeline Downs, Race #1, #2, #3 & #4.
Pick 4 with Horses 3, 3, 6 and 5.
In this bet, the player is choosing horse 3 to win the first race, horse 3 to win in the second race, horse 6 to win the 3rd and horse 5 to take the top spot in the 4th race.
Pick 4 Part Wheel:
Just as with the Pick 3 Part Wheel bet, the Pick 4 wheel option enables you to broaden your list of possible winning horses for any or all races in your bet. This may come to play in your favor if you don't feel overly confident about one of your horse picks winning either one race, as well as whenever you have a good number of high-paying horses among your race entries.
Pick 4 Part Wheel Example:
Los Alamitos, Race #1, #2, #3 & #4.
Pick 4 Part Wheel: 7, 8, 9, WITH 4, and 7, WITH 3, WITH 2, 3 and 6.
In this bet, the player is choosing horses 7, 8 or 9 to Win the first race, then, horses 4, or 7 to win the second race, then horse 3 to win the third race and lastly, horses 2, 3, or 6 to win the fourth.
