Paddy Power are usually one of the first when it comes to free to play games but surprisingly with horse racing free prediction games they are a little late to the party. Many other bookies have been offering free games to punters for years now so what is special about this one from Paddy Power?
Well, with most similar free horse racing prediction games you need to predict six results to win and as you can probably guess from the name of this offer here you need only Pick 5.
The game is free for account holders to play (18+ of course) in the UK and Ireland, providing your account is fully verified. It is offered in conjunction with Racing TV.
Playing the game is easy, especially if you have played similar games offered by other sites. There are 5 select races and from the race day, this is usually a Saturday but can be other days for big meetings, and you pick a winner for each race.
Should a horse that you picked be declared a non-runner then your pick will be replaced with the favourite. If it happens to be a joint-favourite you will get the horse with the lowest racecard number.
If you do get all five picks correct you will win or share £25,000 in cash. There is no tiebreaker, if there are multiple winners the prize is split equally between all.
If the prize is not won it rolls over to the next week and can continue to grow up to a maximum of £100,000. Therefore, if there is no winner for three consecutive rounds the fourth round would offer a prize of £100k.
If a race is abandoned or made void for any reason the jackpot is paid out on four entries and drops to £5,000. If that happens in two races then the jackpot drops to £1,00o for three correct answers. If three or more races are cancelled the competition is void that week.
Prizes are generally paid out within 3 days. If you want to know more about Paddy Power take a look at their review on here, if you do not already have an account you could also claim a welcome offer, which is detailed on the review page.
Entry is free and must be completed before the first race on Saturday. If the prize isn’t won it will roll over to the following week. One entry per customer per week in Paddy’s Pick 5. T&Cs Apply. Please gamble responsibly
