“As a real-money tournament the weekly Cash Is King tournament is the perfect practice grounds for the high-end bankroll contests,” stated Richard Nilsen, tournament director and 17x NHC qualifier. “In addition to competing for the huge grand prize, you keep your winnings each week and play without incurring any high contest takeout.”

 

Cash is King XIII – The Best Real Money Contest exclusively at BetPTC.com

Please read the rules carefully.  Any questions should be directed to rich.nilsen @ betptc.com

The BetPTC real-money tournament is back.  Cash is King XIII runs from Saturday, May 8 until early October, with a championship finals October 9-10, 2021.   Jump in and play at any time!  For only a one-time $75 entry fee you can play all year long!

This is a real-money contest so, in addition to any prizes, you keep whatever you win.  But that’s not all.  In a tournament environment where takeouts can go as high as 30% or even more, this is the best value in the country!

Why Cash is King? First of all, it’s fun and challenging. Plus, our contest at BetPTC.com takes away the inequities of traditional handicapping tournaments and lets you play how you want, on the tracks you want, with a very small, minimum amount of wagering.

Unlike many other tournaments, it doesn’t matter if you’re a big bettor or a small bettor. Everyone has an equal chance to win the prizes in the one-of-a-kind Cash Is King contest at BetPTC.com.  If you are wagering on the horses on the weekends, you should be participating!

 

To qualify for contest scoring each Saturday, you must wager a minimum of $200 in contest wagering. Play your favorite tracks and make your favorite wagers, all using a bankroll that fits your budget. There are no mandatory tracks and no specific bets required. The contest is scored on your return on investment (ROI), not on how much you wager.

 

WHY PLAY THIS CONTEST?

There’s no doubt … traditional handicapping tournaments aren’t for everyone. If the contest is filled with mandatory races at tracks you don’t normally play, it slants the playing field toward others in the contest who play those circuits.

Many of the real-money, big bankroll tournaments require large minimum wagering thresholds or entry fees that price most players out.  In addition, they often encourage players to go “all-in” which many players simply do not have the disposition to do.

It doesn’t have to be that way.  You can parlay a top finish in BetPTC’s Cash Is King XIII into a major score on Breeders’ Cup day!  It doesn’t get any better than that.

 

RULES & PRIZES

Earn Leaderboard points to qualify to compete in the October 9-10 Finals of Cash Is King XIII.  We anticipate a small group of players competing in the Finals where a full berth to the BREEDERS’ CUP BETTING CHALLENGE (BCBC) will be given away plus thousands in other cash prizes!

 

How is scoring calculated?

This is an R.O.I. (Return on Investment) based contest that utilizes your regular wagering during the course of the day.  Prizes are based on ROI on the players’ accounts. ROI is calculated by dividing wagering returns by the amount wagered. BetPTC rewards are not included in the calculation. For example, a player makes $2,000 in contest-designated wagers on a Saturday and his or her return is $3,000.  The calculation for that Saturday is as follows: $3000/$2000 -1 = 50% ROI.

Finalists must wager $250 or more in contest wagers over each day of the October 9-10, 2021 weekend to be eligible for any of the prizes.

Ties for the October championship finals’ prizes will be broken based on the player who participated in the most contest Saturdays throughout the year. 

If this does not break the tie, the tie will be broken based on which player wagered the most amount of money over the course of the Finals’ weekend. If that still does not break the tie, a playoff date will be chosen for the two players to compete for the championship prize.
