“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 15x 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 XI – The Best Real Money Contest 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 X runs from Saturday, March 2 until the end of October, with a championship finals November 9-10, 2019.   Jump in and play at any time!  For only a one-time $50 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!

 

The Cash is King 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.

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 only $150 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.

It doesn’t have to be that way.  You can parlay a top finish in BetPTC’s Cash Is King XI into a major score on Pegasus Cup day as well as at both Keeneland and Saratoga!  It doesn’t get any better than that.

RULES & PRIZES

Finish in first place on any Saturday feeder (dates listed below) and you qualify to compete in the November 9-10 Finals of Cash Is King XI.  There will be a maximum of 39 members eligible to compete in the Finals where a full berth to the PEGASUS CUP BETTING CHAMPIONSHIP 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.

Contest Eligibility & Requirements

Customers who agree to these rules and wish to participate must complete the following two steps:

What a Birthday for the Defending BetPTC Handicapper of the Year

John F., defending BetPTC Handicapper of the Year (2017), celebrated his birthday in horseracing style. John overcame an almost insurmountable lead from Day One leader Scott C. ($5,875; +2250%) to win the 2018 BetPTC Cash is King X Finals.

Besides retaining his Handicapper of the Year title by finishing first for the second consecutive year, John garnered the coveted $12,000 Pegasus entry.  That event is held Jan 25-26, 2019 at Gulfstream Park (and Santa Anita).  John also keeps the $9,007 in cash he won plus receives travel reimbursement ($500) and perks at the Pegasus Cup.

Although John was a respectable 2nd after Day One ($2,457; +810.19%), Carson’s +2,250% ROI score was imposing. With a big hit at Gulfstream Park West on Sunday, John concluded his weekend with a 2-day total of $9,007; a +1632.12% ROI that put him narrowly on top.

As a 9 time-NHC qualifier, John is looking forward to not only the exciting and challenging Pegasus contest hosted by the Stronrach group in late Jan, but also participating again in the $3M NHC contest in Las Vegas in early February.

For his second-place finish, Scott C. earned the $2,000 cash prize plus kept his $8,555 in winnings for a tremendous weekend of handicapping and betting.  3rd place went to Albert T. ($3,304, +278.47%), good for $1,000 in prize money. 4th place was Peter M. ($1,320, +161.41%) and 5th place was Ellis S. ($1,489, +45.75%).  Both Peter and Ellis won $500 cash.  6th place finisher was Andrew W. ($740, +32.62%), and 7th went to David V. ($1,211, +21.42%).  Each received $250 cash.

Congratulations to all 39 contestants who qualified and competed in this year’s 15-week Cash is King contest and Nov Finals.

A bonus contest event is being held this Friday for the 7 participants who finished in the top 3 three or more times during the 15-week contest.  An additional $3,000 in prizes will be awarded in that special event.

About Premier Turf Club (BetPTC)

Premier Turf Club is a U.S. based pari-mutuel account wagering provider that has been in business over 10 years.  BetPTC is regulated in the state of Oregon by the Oregon Racing Commission.

The company provides legal telephone and online betting services, safely and securely handling over $350 million in wagers.  In the summer of 2017, BetPTC released a mobile-friendly wagering platform at BetPTC.mobi.

Unlike the off-shore ADWs, a portion of all monies wagered through Premier Turf Club go to the horsemen and the local racetracks. It’s these payments that allow horsemen to run meets at Portland Meadows, country fairs and various racetracks throughout the United States.

The owner of Premier Turf Club started out in the racing industry as a horse owner and bettor. The BetPTC staff includes horse owners, bettors and industry professionals that have been involved in advance deposit wagering and simulcasting since their inceptions.

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!

The Cash is King 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.

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 with us on the weekends, you should be participating!

To qualify for contest scoring each Saturday, you must wager a minimum of only $150. 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 based on your return on investment (ROI), not on how much you wager.

WHY PLAY THIS CONTEST?

It’s true. 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. Cash money contests often require large minimum wagering thresholds or entry fees that price most players out.

  Over the course of 17 weekends we’ll be paying back over 100% and over $20,000 in cash and prizes!

  You can parlay a top two finish in this contest into a major score in Las Vegas in early 2018!

RULES & PRIZES

 Finish in the top 3 on any Saturday feeder (dates listed below) or be among the top 3 not already qualified for our Finals and you qualify to compete in the November 11-12 Finals of Cash is King IX.  There will be a maximum of 48 members eligible to compete in the Finals where 2 spots to the NHC will be given away plus other great cash prizes and a “bonus” pool!

 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 wagers $2,000 on a Saturday and his or her return is $3,000.  The calculation for that Saturday is as follows: $3000/$2000 -1 = 50% ROI.

Contest Eligibility & Requirements

Customers who agree to these rules and wish to participate must complete the following two steps:

1) Register for the contest by completing the required registration form which allows for $79 to be deducted from your wagering account.  The Registration Form can be found here on BetPTCBlog.com.  Funds will be manually deducted from your BetPTC account and could take up to 24 hours.  Please be sure to retain enough funds in your account for the withdrawal.

How to Play

 Wagers can be made online or by phone.

Wagers can be made on any type of bet that BetPTC accepts.

Wagers can be made on any tracks of the player’s choice on any of the Saturdays during the contest date range. To qualify for contest play on a given Saturday, registered members must wager a minimum of $150 during the course of a contest day. There is no maximum limit to how much can be wagered. 

Wagers for each Saturday begin with the racing day on Saturday late morning.  Wagers made late on Friday night past Midnight ET will NOT count towards Saturday’s scoring. And wagers made on Saturday racing that occur AFTER Midnight ET will count towards Saturday’s scoring.

Weekly Prizes and the Championship 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 wagers $2,000 on a Saturday and his or her return is $3,000.  The calculation for that Saturday is as follows: $3000/$2000 -1 = 50% ROI.

A Weekly and Annual Leaderboard will be displayed on the BetPTC News page:

Additional “Bonus” Prize Pool

100% of the contest registration fees will be paid out.  80% of the contest registration fees will go towards the “Bonus” Prize Pool.  The remaining 20% will be used towards the Finals prizes.

This bonus prize pool is specifically for the players who finish in the top 3 of any Saturday feeder three or more times.  The “Bonus” Prize Pool participants will face off in competition on a select date later in the year.

For example, let’s say that 100 people register at a cost of $79 each.  That $6,320 in funds (80% of the entry fees) will go entirely to this bonus prize pool.

The “Bonus” Prize Pool will pay out as follows*:

Highest finish on November 17th: 50% of the Pool

 2nd highest finish on November 17th: 30% of the Pool

 3rd highest finish on November 17th: 20% of the Pool

For example, if only three players qualify for this “bonus” pool during the season, each person is guaranteed prize money in the Finals.

  * based on 3 or more eligible players.

The “Bonus” Prize Pool if only 2 players are eligible:

Highest finish on November 17th: 70% of the Pool

 2nd highest finish on November 17th: 30% of the Pool

The “Bonus” Prize Pool if only 1 player is eligible:

In the event that only one person becomes eligible for the bonus prize pool, they will be guaranteed the entire prize pool provided they meet the wagering requirement on November 17, 2017.

In the unlikely event that NO player finishes in the top 3 of the Saturday feeders, then the Championship prizes will expand down to 12th place and the money distributed throughout the top positions.

Wagering Rules for Finals

Cash Is King IX Championship Finals on November 11-12, 2017

Finalists must wager $250 or more over each day of the Nov. 11-12, 2017 weekend to be eligible for any of the prizes.

The top 24 players based on ROI on Saturday, November 11 will move on to compete on Sunday, November 12.  The 24 players will enter day two with a clean slate (a zero ROI).  In other words, Saturday’s score has no bearing on Sunday’s score.  Sunday’s score alone will determine the overall winners of Cash Is King IX.

Sunday Finalists must wager $250 or more to be eligible for prize eligibility.

Wagering Rules for “Bonus” Prize Pool Funds

“Bonus” Prize Pool players only will compete on Friday, November 17, 2017.  Participants must wager $200 or more on that day in order to be eligible for Bonus Pool prizes.  This is an R.O.I. based, single-day contest which will determine the prize winners.   If only one person is eligible for the “Bonus” Prize Pool they must still wager the required minimum threshold ($200) in order to claim their prize money.

Tiebreakers for Prizes:

If there is a tie for the weekly prize, the tie will go to the player who wagered the most money on that Saturday.  If that still does not break the tie, then the player who cashed on the most individual bets will win the tie.  If that still does not break the tie, a playoff date will be chosen for the two players to compete for the Finals spot.

Ties for the championship finals’ prizes will be broken based on the player who participated in the most 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 this does not break the tie, the player with the highest gross ROI over the entire year will break the tie.
