17.10 Humgii Racing

Racing humgii is an old and honorable sport. In it, jockeys, typically of the Pixie, Imp, or Pygmy races, ride humgii for one and a half laps around a track. Odds are presented beforehand, allowing players to bet Tickets on a humgii and reap a reward in credits. 

Tickets are gotten by purchasing credits when the relevant credit promotion is running - you will receive one racing ticket for every 10 credits you buy.

In humgii racing, you can bet on a particular humgii/jockey to either Win, Place, or Show. 

Win   = 1st place.
Place = 1st OR 2nd place.
Show  = 1st OR 2nd OR 3rd place.

So, the payoff for a Place on a particular humgii will always be lower than for a Win, since a Place is inherently more likely. Similarly, a Show will payout less than a Place or Win would.

The premiere humgii racetrack - Sugardown Fields - is located behind (south of) the New Thera casino entrance. Once there, you may:
