2021 welcomes the return of the thrilling ‘Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge’ this racing season at Dundalk Stadium.
The Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge starts again this Friday 8 January, with £5,100 to be won in prize money over the 17 meetings until 31 March 2021.
Last season saw £1,620 paid out in cash prizes, and £3,195 generously donated to the Irish Horse Welfare Trust on behalf of the players that took part.
Playing the challenge is simple and only take 2 minutes to pick and click!
Sign into the Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge website, and select one horse for each race at Dundalk that day. Make sure your selections are locked in at least 5 minutes before the 1st race to get your entry in. You can place your selections early, and change them, up until the closing time.
Points are awarded based on where your horse finishes in the field. 1 point for last position, and the field size for 1st place. So, in a 10-horse race, 10 points for 1st, 9 points for 2nd, and so forth. Bonus points are also awarded to the winning horse, based on the decimal SP. A 3/1 shot will receive 4 bonus points, on top of their position points.
Therefore, every point counts in the pursuit of the top of the leaderboard!
James Griffin, the racing commentator and ex-amateur jockey, is the Irish Tipster for the competition and is excited for the Punters Challenge to be running again…
“Horse racing is a great sport and brilliant game of opinions, and what better way to challenge your own views than play the Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge every Dundalk race day. It is free to play, and with a guaranteed prize fund of £300 up for grabs, the Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge gives every horse racing fan a chance to have an interest through the whole card for free. Not only that, but it also allows one to pit themselves against like-minded wannabe pro tipsters!”
When asked what he enjoyed most about participating in the Challenge, James replied,
“I have played the Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge throughout the autumn and I got a great kick out of making the podium and choosing to donate my prize money to the Hollywoodbets associated charity. It’s a great initiative that Hollywoodbets have introduced to Irish racing and something that can only get bigger and better. If you think it’s easy being an armchair jockey, it’s easier to be an armchair tipster! Life is about challenges, take the Punters Challenge and see how easy it is to win.”
Let your competitive spirit provide you excitement, fun and entertainment as the Dundalk racing season ramps up over the months ahead.
