What is the Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge?
It is a FREE TO ENTER and FREE TO PLAY competition for anyone over the age of 18.
The challenge involves picking one horse per race for each meeting held at Dundalk Stadium on the competition website: www.punters.hollywoodbets.com.
Each selection is awarded points based on where the selected horse finishes in its race, plus additional points based on the starting price of the winner.
There is €300 to be shared amongst the Top 5 Punters leader board at the end of each race meeting. With a minimum of twelve race meetings during the competition there is a guaranteed €3600 to be won!
When does it start and how long can I play?
The challenge starts on Wednesday 4 November and runs until Friday 4 December 2020. There are 13 Dundalk race meetings between these dates. Each race meeting is a new chance to win a share of the £300 prize pool. So even if you missed the first meeting, you can make your selections for the next one.
Do I need a Hollywoodbets account?
If you want to take the prize in cash then YES, it is best to have an active Hollywoodbets account. If you would prefer to play for fun without a Hollywoodbets account you can still enter and any winnings obtained will be donated to the Irish Horse Welfare Trust (IHWT) in your name. If you would prefer this option, put “IHWT” as your account number when registering yourself into the competition.
How to Play
The 'Selection' page opens on the morning of a Dundalk meeting, where you will need to make a selection in each race.
Points are allocated according to the finishing position of each horse in the race. The number of points on offer is dependent on the number of runners in each race. In a field of 10 runners, calling the winner would reward you with 10 points, predicting 2nd would get you 9 points and so on with the last placed horse being awarded 1 point.
If you predict a winner, you will get extra points according to the starting price of that horse. If the starting price of a winner in a 10-horse race is 6.0, then you would receive 16 points in total (being 10 plus an additional 6 points calculated by the starting price).
Every point counts to take you to the top of the leaderboard!
