William Hill have really set the bar in the last 12 months for horse racing offers, easily overtaking Coral and Paddy Power who were the previous go to betting sites for high value deals for horse racing.
The Golden Race is a new and unique promotion form Hill’s that gives customers the opportunity to win £100,000 in real cash by predicting the finishing order of horses in a specific race.
To qualify you need to place a £10+ win bet or £5+ each-way bet on a race in the selected meeting, doubles, trebles, accumulators or multiple bets do not qualify. Following placement of that wager you can then play the Golden Race game, either via a pop-up link or by visiting the Golden Race page.
Select the finishing order of horses in the selected race, this is usually the first 6 places. If you guess right you will now win, or share if multiple correct guesses, £100,000 in cash.
Should no one predict the order correctly a consolation prize is shared among punters that have predicted a specified number of palces. For example, if you were asked to predict six places and nobody won then the consolation prize may be shared between users that got the first 3 places correct.
Although this is a jackpot game it is different to many other horse racing prediction games in that it is not free, you need to place a qualifying wager to take part. This in itself means there is inherently less competition and therefore if you did win you are more likely to win or share a higher percentage of the prize compared to if that game was free to eneter.
If you are someone who bets regularly on racing anyway and would likely have had a punt on the selected Golden Race meeting anyway then it makes sense to enter the Golden Race alongside.
