8.22.3418 TWIN QUIN FEATURE
(1) An association licensed by the Montana board of horse racing to conduct
horse racing meetings, may conduct a twin quin, subject to the following rules.
twin quin is a form of parimutuel wagering. It consists of selecting the
quiniela (the first two runners to finish) of each of two consecutive
races. Twin quin wagering tickets are
to be sold on the first race of the two races only. The division of the pool shall be calculated as a straight pool,
subject to the provisions of these rules to the contrary.
quin tickets will be sold only at twin quin windows by the licensee.
quin tickets will be sold only from quiniela issuing machines.
wagerer purchasing twin quin tickets shall designate his two selections as the
first two runners to finish in the first race of the two consecutive twin quin
the official result of the first two runners to finish in the first half of the
twin quin races, each wagerer holding a ticket combining the said two runners
to finish, shall, prior to the running of the second half race, exchange such
winning ticket at the twin quin windows, for a twin quin exchange ticket and at
such time the holder shall attempt to select the first two runners to finish in
the second race of the twin quin. No
further money will be required of the holder of the twin quin ticket in order
to make the exchange.
twin quin exchange ticket on the second race of the twin quin will be issued
except on the surrender of the twin quin ticket from the first race of the twin
quin described in these rules. The twin
quin pool obtained from sales of twin quin tickets on the first race of the
twin quin will be held subject to these rules, and divided among the winning
tickets of the twin quin exchange tickets, subject to these rules to the
contrary. Twin quin windows will be
open for the purpose of making exchange as described only after the first race
has been declared official, and such windows will close at official post time
at the start of the second race of the twin quin races.
will be no refund if the holder of a winning twin quin ticket from the first
half of the twin quin fails to exchange the winning twin quin ticket within the
time provided for said exchange. The
racing association must provide reasonable time for the exchanging of winning
twin quin tickets.
price of any twin quin tickets entitled to a refund will be deducted from the
twin quin pool.
(10) If a runner is scratched in the first race of the twin quin races,
all twin quin tickets on the scratched runner will be refunded.
(11) If no twin quin ticket is sold as a winning combination in the first
half of the twin quin, the twin quin pool will be divided among those having
tickets including the runner finishing first and the runner finishing second,
and such distribution will be calculated as a place pool. In such an instance, the twin quin wagering
will end and the pool closed for that racing card.
(12) If no twin quin exchange ticket is sold on the winning combination,
the net pool will then be divided equally between those having tickets
including the runner finishing second, in the same manner in which a place pool
is calculated and distributed.
(13) If a twin quin exchange ticket on the second half combines only one
of the two winners, and no twin quin exchange ticket combines the other winner,
the entire pool will be distributed as a straight pool to the holders of those
(14) In the event of a dead heat for place in the first race of the twin
quin races, all twin quin tickets combining the first runner and either of the
place runners will be eligible for exchange for twin quin exchange tickets.
(15) In the event of a dead heat for place in the second race of the twin
quin races, the twin quin pool will be divided, calculated and distributed as a
place pool to the holders of the twin quin exchange tickets combining the first
runner and either of the place runners.
(16) If, for any reason, the first race of the twin quin races is
cancelled or declared "no race", full and complete refund will be
made from the twin quin pool.
(17) If, for any reason, the second race of the twin quin races is
cancelled or declared "no race", the pool will be calculated as a
straight pool and will be distributed among the holders of tickets combining
the first two runners of the first race of the twin quin, otherwise eligible
for twin quin exchange tickets (and also to holders of the exchanged twin quin
tickets if any have been issued) .
(18) If there is a dead heat for the winning runner in either of the two
consecutive races for the twin quin, such calculation of distribution of the
twin quin pool will be made in the manner in which any ordinary quiniela pool
would be made should there be a dead heat for the win, despite the number of
runners involved in the dead heat.
(19) The twin quin is an entirely separate pool from all other wagering
pools and has no relationship to any other forms of wagering.
(20) If a horse is scratched in the second race of the twin quin, the
holders of tickets on the scratched horse shall be entitled to exchange their
tickets for another selection.
(21) If a horse is scratched too late to make an exchange, the total
number of exchanges shall be divided into the net pool to get a unit price for
each winning exchange ticket and this unit price shall be multiplied by the
number of tickets on the scratched horse of the second half of the twin
quin. This total shall be deducted from
the net pool and be used to pay the winner of the second half combined with the
scratched horse. The balance of the net
pool shall be paid to the holders of the tickets on the horses that finish
first and second.
