Xpressbet announced it will be the exclusive online provider of the $500,000 estimated Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship (PWCBC), offering horseplayers the opportunity to play in horse racing's “most player-friendly handicapping tournament” from the comfort and convenience of home.
The PWCBC sets itself apart from other handicapping tournaments by guaranteeing a $300,000 prize pool, which includes $100,000 contributions from The Stronach Group and Xpressbet. Tournament officials estimate the total prize pool will reach $500,000. Cash prizes are paid to the top 10 finishers, with the winner receiving an estimated $250,000 cash prize and seats to both the National Handicapping Championship (NHC) and the Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge (BCBC).
Gulfstream Park will host this two-day tournament on January 26-27 in conjunction with the world's richest horse race, the $16-million Pegasus World Cup. In addition to playing online at Xpressbet, players can also play live, on-site at Gulfstream or at three satellite locations – Santa Anita Park, Golden Gate Fields and Laurel Park.
Online and satellite participation in the PWCBC requires a $12,000 bankroll and $1,000 entry fee. Players must bet a minimum amount and number of races each day, and the tournament is limited to Win, Place Show, Exacta and Trifecta wagers.
