13.    Prize monies will be paid into the winners’ Hollywoodbets account by 12:00pm, on the day after a qualifying round of the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge.

 

14.    All or Nothing
•    Cumulative prize money of over R1-million will be paid to a player/s who picks all the winners on any race day *. Dead-heat rules apply in the event of multiple winning players i.e. – the total prize will be split equally amongst the winning players. This is an all or nothing prize! There is no pro-rating of this prize in the event of a curtailed or abandoned meeting.
•    The race day is defined as the full programme of events, with a minimum of eight (8) races, all of which are completed and an official result declared for each race.
•    To top this, for every race meeting where the cumulative prize is not won, a further R25 000 will be added to the pot. This “All or Nothing” prize will be capped at R2 000 000 (Two Million Rand).
•    Where the prize is won before the finalisation of “The Challenge”, the bonus prize of R1 million will be reinstated.
15.    Must Be Won
•    At Hollywoodbets discretion, when the “All or Nothing” prize is not won, it may select a race meeting to become a “Must Be Won” meeting, where R500 000 of the roll-over amount will be won on the following terms: The “All or Nothing” prize money will revert to R1 million for the next race meeting.
•    The player/s who tips the most winners on the day will win the R500 000. Dead-heat rules apply in the event of multiple winning players tipping the same number of winners.
•    The points system normally applicable as detailed below will NOT apply to this “Must Be Won” prize as the winner/s will be the player/s who tip the most winners on the day, irrespective of the starting price of those winners.
16.    Points System
•    Every point counts! Points are allocated according to the official finishing position of each horse in the race. The number of points on offer is dependent on the number of horses participating (official runners) in the race.
•    Points are awarded in accordance with the horses’ finishing positions i.e. – in a 10-horse field, the winner will be awarded ten (10) points, 2nd place is nine (9) points and so on with the last horse being awarded one (1) point. Similarly, in a 16-horse field, the winner will be awarded 16 points and the last horse just a single point.
•    In addition, points will be awarded according to the price of the winner only. The winning selection will get a bonus of the Hollywoodbets starting price. If the winner of a 12-horse race starts at 12.5/1 (13.5) then the punters selecting the horse will be awarded 25.5 points (being 12 plus an additional 13.5 points for the starting price).
•    A horse/jockey combination must be declared a runner in the race to be awarded any points.
•    Where a dead-heat is declared for any position, then dead-heat rules will apply, and the contestants will each receive half of the aggregated points on offer. So, for example, a dead-heat for 3rd and 4th in the 10-horse race will see the affected horses each being awarded 7.5 points ((8+7)/2).
•    Where a dead-heat is declared for first place, then the dead-heat rules will apply to both the finishing position (as above) and the starting price bonus. So, for example, a dead-heat for first and second place in the 10-horse race will see the affected horses each being awarded 9.5 points ((10+9)/2). Where the one horse was priced at 9/1 and the other at 3/1, then the starting price bonus will be 5 (10/2) points to the former and 2 (4/2) points to the latter.
•    Where a horse is pulled up in a race, it will be considered to have finished last and will be awarded one point. Where more than one horse is pulled up, then they shall share the bottom positions and shall share the points allocation. For example, if two horses are pulled up then they shall share three (3) points (1+2).
•    Cumulative points awarded will be updated after each race.
•    Points earned at each race meeting will be totalled and the punters with the highest aggregate number of points for that meeting shall be awarded the prize money as detailed above. In the event of a dead-heat for any of the top ten positions, then the dead-heat rules will apply.
•    The final allocation of points shall be adjudicated and finalised by the Hollywoodbets Team and no correspondence will be entered into regarding the process or the outcome.
•    Failure to make selections for a race meeting will result in zero points.
17.    Scratchings and disqualifications
•    Any selection of a scratching will be assigned the official tote favourite for the race. In the event there are dual tote favourites in a race, the highest placed finisher (of the tote favourites) will be assigned to the scratching.
•    A horse disqualified after having run a race will be deemed to have run last and will earn one point, with each horse that finished behind it being promoted.
18.    Change of venue – if the venue changes (before 11 am on race day) then punters will have the option to retain their original selection or create new selections on a new selection grid. Where no new selections are made, the original selections will remain as valid selections.
19.    Any race meeting rescheduled from its original date to another day shall be re-opened for selections prior to the rescheduled date. The original selections shall be voided and only the reselected entries shall apply.
20.    Entries will only be accepted up until five (5)-minutes before the carded time of the first race. The meeting will be closed at that time and no selections will be accepted after that time for any reason whatsoever.
21.    It is the responsibility of each entrant to pick, process and save their selections. Team Members at Hollywoodbets and/or the independent developers of the Punters’ Challenge system cannot process entries on behalf of any other person for any reason whatsoever. It is each person’s responsibility to ensure their selections are recorded before the closing time of “The Challenge”.
22.    Selections may be amended up to the cut-off time and any and all changes must be saved.
