Two lucky players, Sketts and EnQ, became the first jackpot winners of 2024 in the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge when they shared the R720 000 jackpot prize by selecting all eight winners on the Turffontein card on Thursday.

On Saturday a record 74 winners shared a payout of R650 000 in the free-to-play competition. Each winner received over R8 700 each.

With fancied horses coming home with regularity – 7 of 9 tote favourites won on the day – the Turffontein Pick 6 paid just R131,10.

The Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge has created a multitude of winners over nearly four years, with the top 20 players on the leaderboard sharing the designated must-be-won daily prize.

For local race meetings, the value of the all-or-nothing prize is determined by the number of runners at the race meeting multiplied by R10 000, for all venues.

For example, if there are 88 carded runners and 5 scratchings, then the all-or-nothing prize will be based on 83 runners at R10 000 each, giving a value of R830 000 as the prize!

On Hong Kong and Singapore race meetings, the jackpot prize is R500 000.

As an added incentive to players, to top this, the all-or-nothing prize and the daily must-be-won prize will be doubled on local SA race meetings for those players who have had a bet on the Punters’ Challenge Bet Slip, to the value of R50 or more, prior to the running of the first race.

The Bet Slip is programmatically generated and all you have to do is indicate an amount of R50 or more that you wish to wager.
