2Build Your Shares
Each time you cash a winning $10 Win bet on a designated contest race, you will earn one (1) “unvested” share of the $5,000 Melbourne Cup Jackpot Prize Pool. Up to four (4) “unvested” shares can be earned each week and up to 16 “unvested” shares may be earned prior to October 31 – Melbourne Cup Night.
3Check the Board
Check the “Shareholders Board” to see who has earned the most shares for each Prize Pool. The player(s) who earn the most “unvested” shares on a single contest night will win or split a $1,000 Weekly Prize. The player(s) who earn the most “unvested” shares over the four week contest period will win or split a $1,000 Bonus Prize.
4Let ‘Em Ride on Emirates Melbourne Cup Night!
Any player who has earned at least one (1) “unvested” share of the $5,000 Melbourne Cup Jackpot Pool is eligible to play on Melbourne Cup Night. On October 31, place one $10 Win bet on a single horse in the Emirates Melbourne Cup. Only your first $10 Win bet on the Melbourne Cup will count as your official contest wager. If your horse wins the Melbourne Cup, all of your “unvested” shares will become fully vested in the $5,000 Jackpot Prize Pool.
TwinSpires will update the Shareholders Board by the Tuesday following each Friday program, except on October 31, when Shareholders Board will be updated the morning of the Melbourne Cup.
