How do I play?

Visit the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge website,use your Hollywoodbets login in credentials and start making your selections.

The game is simple, requiring a player to pick one horse for each race on the card, and submitting their picks 5 minutes before the first race of the day.

Players receive points depending on where their selection finishes in a race, and how many actual runners there are in a race. Therefore, in a 12-horse race, first position will receive 12 points, Second position 11 points, third position 10 points, all the way down to last position with 1 point. In a seven-horse race, firsst position will receive 7 points, second position will receive 6 points, and so on. Bonus points are awarded for winning selections, where the Hollywoodbets Starting Price (SP) for that horse will be added to the points awarded. If the winning horse’s SP is 4/1 for example in a race, then an additional 5 points (4 + 1) will be added to the points earned. In the above twelve-horse race example the winning selection would have 17 points awarded (12 plus 5 bonus points).
