Fancy turning $220 into $50,000+? I wouldn’t mind it either if you must know… and you will have to beat me to win the top prize! This weekend see’s the start of the TopBetta King of the Cup tournament, where punters from all around Australia compete against each other over the four Flemington race meetings for $200,000 in prizes and the title of Australia’s best punter. Is it you?
How it works
The Tournament runs from Saturday Oct 30 through to Nov 5, over the four Flemington carnival meetings. At the start of each of the first three meetings of the tournament, your TopBetta account is credited with 10,000 tournament credits. Whatever you make at the end of each of the first three meetings is ‘banked’ and combined as your starting bank for the final meeting on Nov 5 ontop of your 50,000 starting bank for the final day.
At the end of the fourth meeting, the person with the highest number of tournament credits takes out the top prize, a minimum of $50,000 AUD (this can rise if the tournament exceeds a certain entrant limit). The prize money doesn’t stop there, with $34,000 for second, $26,000 for third, $19,000 for fourth, $14,000 for 5th and so on all the way down to 15th with a minimum payout of $4,000.
An added twist
What adds to the excitement and drama of this tournament is the leaderboard. All competitors are ranked from top to tail and you can click on any of the players to view their previous bets. When you get down to the business end of things deep into tournaments, it’s not just about managing your bank, but also predicting the next move your opponents will make. Fighting out top position on the final day with a a punter who has been betting outsiders all tournament… do you really think they are going to risk it all on a double up through the $2 favourite? Will they try and maintain a top 10 position by betting 20% of their bank instead on the $5-1 shot second favourite. How will this affect your final bet of the tournament? If you really are Australia’s best punter, you will figure it out!
Why am i promoting this tournament?
I played my very first TopBetta tournament at the start of the year and have competed several times since since. I found the format very enjoyable and it provided me with a way to enjoy the full racing day and to get more involved with races I may not normally be betting into. While I haven’t won a tournament yet, I have finished in the cash previously. For the price of $220, you are getting four meetings of fun and enjoyment out of the tournament, with the chance to walk away with $50,000. The more people we can get involved in the tournament and future tournaments, the higher the potential prizepool will be.
