Match your first bet up to £50 click here RaceO

London, 18th May 2007 – Play the RaceO 8 on Saturday and you could Win the Biggest Jackpot in UK Racing. Open an account and play today and RaceO will match your first bet up to £50.'

RaceO today announced that a female customer this week won £5000 for just a 5p stake on their midweek 8 race jackpot game. The Crawley based punter, who goes by the username ‘Racy Lady’, managed to pick all 8 winners and was amazed by the size of the return for such a little stake. “We’ve been stunned by the popularity of our midweek games,” says RaceO President Berri Schroder. “We’ve had record levels of business all week as more and more people are attracted to the game. At just 5p per line, it’s almost become like a bingo game involving horses. However, the really exciting development is on the number of female players which increases every day”.

The Saturday game returns tomorrow with an ever growing jackpot prize pool of £34,000 and Schroder has not ruled out lowering the stakes for their flagship game in the future. “We’ve been knocked over by the interest in our 5p games so we’ll definitely look to explore the possibility of offering a lower stakes weekend game. Normal punters will then be able to play different perms at far less cost.”

As always, punters are asked to pick one selection from a maximum of eight in each race as all outsiders are coupled together. The races are....
The legs will be:
Saturday Race 1 2.25 Newmarket Race 2 2.45 Newbury Race 3 3.00 Newmarket Race 4 3.15 Newbury Race 5 3.35 Newmarket Race 6 3.40 Thirsk Race 7 3.50 Newbury Race 8 4.25 Newbury

RaceO is similar to but drastically more winnable than the well known Scoop6 bet because all races are scaled down to just 8 possible winners. Beyond what RaceO consider to be the top 7 form horses in the race, every other runner is considered an "outsider" - if you select one "outsider", all other "outsiders" are included in your bet for free! This reduces the odds of a win very dramatically indeed and makes the bet far better value than the Scoop6 with big fields from which you have to find the winner.

Help choosing your selections is available for free from Timeform

You pick horses to win each of 8 races. Unlike the Scoop6, there are good returns for getting just 6 or 7 correct.
