A parimutuel track in the ALP SaaS most commonly represents a physical horse- or dog-racing track that wagers are accepted on. Rarely, a tote provider may decide to program a special bet type as a track within the tote player tracking data.
Before associating the track (or event) code with a track in the ALP SaaS, the parimutuel track must first be created using the aforementioned page.
First, select the appropriate category within the category dropdown above the main grid.
To create a new parimutuel track, click the "Add Parimutuel Track" link at the top of the aforementioned page. Alternately, to edit an existing or delete an unused existing track, click the "Edit" link within the grid for the associated track.
Changes to the transaction point formula will only be propagated to locations created after the change is saved, unless the associated check boxes are checked. Individual location defaults can be altered within the Calendar menu.
