5. Tournament Format

The Championships Challenge – Palmerbet will identify major carnival races over a period of weeks or months which form to make the legs/races of the competition. All Players will select one (1) primary horse from each of the designated races of the tournament which a fictitious $100 win and $100 Place wager is placed. A second selection may be used in the event of the first selection being scratched. After the race, Palmerbet will compute the combined pay-off for Player’s virtual race bets, which will be added to the Player’s score. The best tote Dividend plus SP will be used for win bets and Super Tab dividend for place portion. Players will use their skill to make selections as well as gauge their place on the leader board and how far they need to move up to win.

Players will only be able to make their selections once the final fields are declared and the fields loaded into the competition.

At the conclusion of the competition, the total pay-off for each player for all races will be aggregated. The player who accrues the most virtual dollars over the course of the entire competition will be deemed the Tournament winner. The leader board will show the complete order of finish from first to last. Different prize amounts will be offered based on the order of finish, with the top prize reserved for the winner.

In the event of a tie the entries for that payout position will split the payout evenly.  


6. Conditions of competitions

The final order of finish and prices based off the best totaliser plus SP will be used to calculate race payouts. Supertab place price will be used for place portion.

The Leader board will be updated on the competition Site after each race. It is the responsibility of the Player to bring any alleged error, issue or complaint to the attention of Palmerbet within 6 hours of the end the contest by sending an email to [email protected] and describing the alleged error, issue or complaint in detail. If Palmerbet is not contacted within 6 hours of the end of the contest, Palmerbet is not responsible for making adjustments to the official order of finish or granting entry fee credit.

The system logs the time and date each Player enters his or her selections.

All rules are subject to change without notice.


7. Scratchings

In all competitions, players may select both a Primary horse selection and an Alternate horse selection. The alternate selection is optional, and to be used if their Primary horse is scratched.

Players may change their Primary and Alternate selections for a race up until the time that the Palmerbet timer counts down to zero for that race.

In the event that a player’s Primary horse is scratched, the player’s selection will be moved to the Alternate. In the case that there is no alternate selected, or if the Primary and Alternate are both scratched, then the player will receive the favourite of the race as a selection. Favourite will be based off lowest best tote option at final dividend declaration.

If a player does not make a selection in a race, the player will receive the post start favourite as a selection. It is the player’s responsibility to select a horse for each race.


8. Selection Deadlines

Entry to a competition closes 1 minute prior to advertised start time of first leg/race of the competition.

Race selections will be closed by the official Competition Site clock which appears on the Palmerbet contest site for every race. The Contest Site clock will close race selections 1 minute prior to advertised start time.

Rights to participate cannot be sold after the closing time for the first determination of results.


9. Payment Period

Payouts will be credited to winner’s accounts within a 24 hour period of final event in competition. In the unlikely event of scoring errors or other circumstances final positions and payouts may change. While the leader board will display the final payout results immediately, these results will not be official until the audit period has concluded. Players that have earned prizes will be notified once the contest has been declared official to their registers email address.


10. Race Cancellations

60% of the race events that comprise a contest must be completed to constitute an official contest. If at least 60% of the individual race events in a particular contest have been completed, the competition will constitute a complete and official competition and will be scored according to the remaining events. If less than 60% of the contest events have been completed, the entire contest will be cancelled.

Last man standing races will be cancelled as soon as the order of races progresses to a cancelled race. At that point, the prize pool will be paid out, divided by the number of correct entries. (The minimum payout on a correct entry is the original entry stake.)

For Lockdown competitions, since all picks are required to be submitted in advance of the first race, if a contest is interrupted in progress by technical issues this will not cause any races to be cancelled since players do not need to access to the site or to change picks during a Lockdown contest.
