So you’re thinking of joining us for a fun and fancy night out at The Winner’s Circle—but you’re not sure about virtual horse racing?

 

Bet on a winning horse for a chance to win a prize package, or to be entered into the grand prize 50/50 draw.

 

Here’s how it works!

On the big night, we’ll present a specially-produced video of multiple horse races, filmed at prestigious racecourses in the UK. We will watch several races, one race at a time. Each race features 8 different horses, and each race lasts between 3 and 5 minutes. 

Let’s get started!

  • 1. Choose a horse
    Before we watch a race, the MC will invite you to place your bets on the horses in that race. For fun, you can look at their names in the race card—but there are no betting odds to worry about. Just pick your favourite to win!
  • 2. Place a bet
    Head to the betting desk to place your bets. Each bet costs $5. The betting desk will give you a betting card showing the number of the horse you have bet on to win. Hold onto this betting card—it could be a winner!
  • 3. Which horse wins?
    Before the race, our MC will announce that betting for that race is over. We’ll watch the race on the big screen—which includes an amusing guide to each horse and full commentary on the race—to see which horse wins.
  • 4. Claim your prize!
    People who bet on the winning horse for each race will be entered in a draw to win a prize package. There will be five races, and five prize winners—one for each race!
  • 5. The 50/50 grand prize draw
    At the end of the night, we’ll hold the 50/50 grand prize draw for the winners of the final race! The 50/50 prize will come from all the money collected for the final race. Half will go to Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, and half will go to the winning 50/50 ticket holder!

Q&A

Q) How do I know which horse to choose?

A) In live horse racing, you can find out the horses’ history before the race—but virtual horse racing is different. All this information is secret, so there’s no way to know. Just pick a horse name or number you like—everyone else will be doing the same!

Q) How many bets can I place in each race?

A) There are no limits on how many bets you can place in each race. For example, you can bet on one horse 10 times and get 10 of the same betting cards. Or you can bet on every horse in the race, and get 8 different betting cards—one of them is guaranteed to win

Q) Do I win money if my horse wins?

Here’s where it gets suspenseful!

For the first five races, people who have bet on the winning horse will be entered in a draw to pick a prize. There will be five prize winners—one for each race!

For the final race at the end of the night, we’ll hold a 50/50 grand prize draw for everyone who bets on the winning horse. The more bets placed for this final race, the bigger the jackpot! Half of the money collected for the final race will go to Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, and half will go to the 50/50 grand prize winner.

Good luck!
