Tabcorp Launches Merged Pools, Powered by Nasdaq’s Longitude Technology

Business News

Tabcorp Australia’s leading wagering operator, and Nasdaq announced Tabcorp has officially launched its new Trio betting type for pari-mutuel customers.

Powered by Nasdaq’s Longitude merged pool technology, Trio allows customers to select three horses to finish first, second and third in any order.

The Longitude technology offers an enhancement to the tote betting system that allows multiple bet types to be merged into one pool. In this scenario – Trio merging with the Trifecta pool – allows customers to bet into pools with aggregated liquidity, allowing for greater dividend stability and confidence. Furthermore, this technology creates more certainty for customers of their potential returns by providing the ability to see approximate dividends on their Trifecta and Trio bets. 

“We’re committed to bringing the best possible products to our customers and believe Trio will be loved by punters,” said Andy Wright, Executive General Manager of Wagering, TAB. “It’s the first of many exciting opportunities made possible by our merged pool technology and we look forward to unveiling more new bet types in the future.”

“In launching Trio with our merged pool technology, Tabcorp is providing its customers with an innovative betting type that makes efficient use of existing liquidity and greater transparency for the market,” said Scott Shechtman, Head of Longitude and New Markets, Nasdaq. “We look forward to supporting Tabcorp’s innovation as they continue to enhance the customer experience by creating new pari-mutuel betting products over the coming years.”
