On Saturday at Turffontein Standside no fewer than 74 punters shared the Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge jackpot prize of R650,000 for managing to select all nine winners at the meeting.
This happened just two days after two lucky players, Sketts and EnQ, became the first jackpot winners of 2024 in the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge when they shared the R720 000 jackpot prize by selecting all eight winners on the Turffontein card on Thursday.
On Saturday the record 74 winners received over R8700 each.
Fancied runners won all of the races and there were 6,339.71 successful Pick 6 tickets.
The Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge has created a multitude of winners over nearly 4 years, with the top 20 players on the leaderboard sharing the designated must-be-won daily prize.
For local racemeetings, the value of the all-or-nothing prize is determined by the number of runners at the race meeting multiplied by R10 000, for all venues.
For example, if there are 88 carded runners and 5 scratchings, then the all-or-nothing prize will be based on 83 runners at R10 000 each, giving a value of R830 000 as the prize!
On Hong Kong and Singapore racemeetings, the jackpot prize is R500 000.
As an added incentive to players, to top this, the all-or-nothing prize and the daily must-be-won prize will be doubled on local SA racemeetings for those players who have had a bet on the Punters’ Challenge Bet Slip, to the value of R50 or more, prior to the running of the first race.
The Bet Slip is programmatically generated and all you have to do is indicate an amount of R50 or more that you wish to wager.
Only one of Saturday’s 74 winners had taken the bet on the betslip, so he was paid out more than R17,000.
