The Autumn racing carnival is heating up and so are the tournament offerings at leading Australian sportsbook TopBetta.
The feature racing tournament of the season at TopBetta is the $250,000 Guaranteed Tournament to be held during The Championships in Sydney on April 3rd. That tournament will have a $100,000 first place prize and to buy into it will cost you $1,100. That’s a fair chunk of change for most punters, but the good news is that TopBetta are running a heap of jackpot satellites to give you a chance to win your way into the big one for just a few dollars.
This Saturday, on Golden Slipper Day, TopBetta will feature a huge satellite win your way into the $250,000 Guaranteed tournament. This week’s satellite is giving away a massive 50 tickets into the big one – that’s $55,000 in value right there. In addition, there’s $20,000 in cash added to the prize pool to boost it to an incredible $75,000 prize pool! Entry for Saturday’s satellite is just $110, and given the huge number of tickets on offer, your chances of winning through to the $250,000 Guaranteed tournament are very good.
Even if $110 is too much to risk, there are feeder satellites starting at just $10, and even a couple of freerolls, running throughout the week.
“Saturday’s satellite will offer 50 tickets into the $250,000 Championships, which will be our biggest tournament ever by far, plus we’ll throw in a $20,000 cash kicker!” said Jake Henson of TopBetta. “That’s $75,000 of value, and just $110 to get a slice of it!”
“With five Group 1s in Sydney, Saturday is arguably the best punting day of the year outside of Derby Day. It’s going to be huge, don’t miss out!” added Henson.
Even if you don’t know a lot about horse racing, you can still compete in TopBetta’s tournaments.
Your entry fee will give you a start bank of “BettaBucks” which have no cash value but are used in the tournament to bet on any or all of the nominated races during the day. In a satellite such as the one this Saturday, it will only take a couple of small wins to reach enough to win a $1,100 ticket for the top 50 place finishers, or if things are going well, you can go for the extra $20,000 in cash for the top three.
But if you need a tip or two then Henson was happy to share his thoughts for the big races of the day.
“Turn Me Loose is a big chance to upset all the Sydney horses in the George Ryder, while the Mick Price pair of Flying Artie and Extreme Choice will quinella the Slipper!” said Henson.
TopBetta’s tournaments are not just restricted to horse racing, with some huge sports tournaments running at the moment which offer excellent value and great prize pools.
T20 Cricket fans can play the “$1k a Day” tournaments which cost just $23 to enter with a “winner-takes-all” format giving away $1,000 in cash every day to the winner.
There are also some huge sports betting tournaments for the AFL and NRL competitions. The AFL tournaments start next week, but the NRL is up to Round 3 and the TopBetta NRL tournaments are attracting plenty of interest. For just a $10 entry, there’s a $10,000 prize pool awarded, with a guaranteed top prize of $2,500.
Beside an incredible array of racing and sports betting tournaments, TopBetta also have a great range of sports betting markets for you to enjoy. As one of Australia’s fastest-growing sportsbooks, we highly recommend you create a TopBetta account and check them out today!
