Trivia Edit

  • It can be placed on grass or pavement.
  • The betting prices, odds and the prizes were different in 2012.
  • If the player loses a bet, they still get 50 Experience.
  • At the beginning of each race one can read "And there goes swifty", which is a common catchphrase at the beginning of greyhound races. Swifty is the mechanical rabbit chased by the dogs. And it's hi that we talk about when it says a player is out like a shot.
  • When it is said " The dogs are approaching the starting gate ", they actually do not. They just take their places and warm up.
  • Even if it says during a race that the player's dog raised 10 dollars, the player will not actually win 10 dollars at the end of the race.
