Official TwinSpires Players’ Pool Rules

This Private Players’ Pool will be capped at $10,000 and covers the Kentucky Derby program on Saturday, May 2.

ThePrivate Pool Guest Panelist will formulate the wagering strategy for the Private Pool. The pool will utilize those funds to select the group tickets that the contributing members share proportionately. TwinSpires Players can jump into the pool by invitation only for as little as $10. Don’t get shut out! The Players’ Pool is designated to be educational and fun and in no way guarantees a winning wager. No more contributions will be accepted after it reaches that threshold. The pool will wager the entire amount. Enter the pool by signing in with your account information and the amount of money you want to put into the pool.

The pool will wager starting May 2.

Invited players will be allowed to contribute a minimum of $10 (there is a $2,000 maximum individual contribution).

While all efforts will be made to ensure only invited players can contribute to the Private Pool, TwinSpires is not responsible for contributions made by any individual TwinSpires account holder.

The amount of each Player’s contribution will determine their percentage in the final total pool.

The pool will close when the $10,000 cap is reached. If it does not fill up completely, the pool will close at midnight EDT (9 p.m. PT) on Friday, May 1.

The Players’ Pool selections will not be made available for viewing before the pool closes.

Your percentage of winnings will be based on the amount of money in the Players’ Pool.

The Players’ Pool is designed to be educational and fun and is in no way guaranteed to make positive return. While the Players’ Pool has had success in the past, that is in no way an indication of future performance.

If any part of the official pool selections is scratched, then those funds will be returned as part of any winnings. Wagers containing scratched horses will continue without the scratched wagering interest.

Players contributing to the Players’ Pool understand that contributions contains risk. Participants may lose all of their contribution.

Selections will not be modified after they have been posted.

Winnings from the Players’ Pool wagers will be paid out no later than 3 days following the pool, however, best efforts will be made to ensure winnings are issued within 24 hours of the last wager.

100% of money contributed to the pool will be wagered. All wagers are subject to the same host track rules and takeout percentages as any other individual account wager. Players are responsible for any taxes that they may incur. Example: You put in the minimum $10 and the pool grows to $10,000. The experts have the lone Pick Six winner worth $1,000,000. Your winning percentage is 0.001 (10/10,000) of the total winning ticket worth $1,000,000. You would win $1,000 (0.001 X 1,000,000).
