“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 XII – 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 XII runs from Saturday, June 20 until the end of October, with a championship finals November 21-22, 2020.   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!

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 $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.  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 XII into a major score on Pegasus World Cup day!  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 21-22 Finals of Cash Is King XII.  There will be a maximum of 25 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:

1) Register for the contest by completing the required registration form which allows for $50 to be deducted from your wagering account.  The Registration Form can be found here.  Funds will be manually deducted from your BetPTC account and could take up to 48 hours.  Please be sure to retain enough funds in your account for the withdrawal.

Weekly Prizes and the Championship Prizes are based on ROI on the players’ accounts.

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.

It’s All About Value

by STRETCH

Being that BetPTC is putting on a contest this weekend and its all about ROI (return on Investment) I thought it was a perfect time to explain VALUE.

We all know it is tough to make money at the races, its is even tougher if you are not getting value on your bets. For example if you are betting a horse at 2-1 but should be at 5-1 this is a terrible bet, sure the horse might win but you are not getting proper ROI.

When do you get value, well that is easy, it is when the racing public is betting the race incorrectly. Let’s say they have a horse at 3-5 and you see multiple reasons why this horse can or will lose. Right away you know there will be overlays in the field. Here is the reverse from my above example, a horse is paying 5-1 but you feel the odds should be 2-1. This is your chance to get your value. At 5-1 you do not have to be right as often. Do not forget to watch your exotic pools either, many times horses may get over bet in the win pool, but forgotten about in the other pools. Maybe there was a large win bet that lowers your odds out of the value you are looking for, but not in the exotics.

Races to avoid happens when the race is bet the right way by the public, rarely happens but it does from time to time. Usually 5-1 horses are at 5-1, 20-1 are at 20-1.  A favourite that looks unbeatable, we all know favourites do win around 33% of the time. Some favourite get over bet and win, so you are stuck, you don’t want to bet on them and know you can’t beat them. Wait 20 minutes and bet another race.

Understanding the differences in a longshot:  A 20-1 ml horse will have lots of negatives, but a horse at 8-1 but goes off at 20 – 1 has far less.  The 8 – 1 gets over looked and becomes a great bet at 20 -1. This is a great note to understand when you are in contests, many people look for 20 – 1 shots, but they use the morning lines. Wrong, watch the board and look for value. or horses at 20 -1 instead.

By the way, the weekend contest is a no brainer to sign up for. It’s free bonus cash, plus it will help you understand how to bet a little better to maximum your chance to make money at the races.

Find that value and make some money this weekend.

Cash is King Contest is “A Competitive, Profitable Challenge”

Cash is Kingby STRETCH

I think the competitors have improved their handicapping and money management since year one of the BetPTC Cash is King Contest. In year one just making a profit was good enough to be on top of the leader board, not now. Full credit to everyone having huge success on Saturdays. Hopefully this continues on the other six days. The tougher the challenge, the tougher you become, and in the long run everyone wins.

I call this a competitive and profitable challenge because if you become competitive you are going to force yourself to find a way to make a profit on the day. There are many ways to make money at the races so truly there isn’t just one way, but make sure your way makes you money. If you are not on the Cash is King Leaderboard, it is only your fault. Make your changes and make this a competitive profitable challenge. How great is this if you improve your ‘capping, you get paid.

The highly competitive challenge only pushes all of us to improve and try and make more money. This contest couldn’t be more fair and does show you who truly is a top nandicapper on this site. No excuses; its all on paper and you need to put your money where your mouth is.

Great ‘capping this month by Dean, Randy and the two Geralds. Well done guys. Some huge wins by various other guys too.

I expect whomever wins the overall title for this year will be well deserved and have a great shot to be successful in the contest in Vegas, the Horseplayer World Series.

Anyone that is not in the contest and is reading this, needs to get involved. You need to challenge yourself, unless you like losing money and do not see a reason to try improve your capping. It’s not okay be like 90% of the horse players out there and be on the losing side of the parimutuel battle.
