Play Hoops and Horses for 2 Million Points

March 19 - 20

The NCAA men's basketball tournament rolls into its third round this weekend while some of the nation's finest thoroughbreds are taking to the track to prove they have what it takes to win at the highest levels in racing. Whether it's hardwood, polytrack, turf or dirt, you can play right along with the best of them at TwinSpires.

Just place a Win bet for the designated amount in any one of four races to select your horse and the winner of the corresponding NCAA Tournament game for a shot at 1 Million TSC Elite Points on Saturday. For each winning horse you pick, you will earn 2 points in the contest. For each winning team you pick, you will earn 1 point in the contest.

Then come back on Sunday and do it all again for another 1 Million Points prize.

How to Play

  • Pick your race winner and game winner by placing a $9 Win bet or $8 Win bet on a single horse in each designated contest race.
  • Only your first Win wager for exactly $9 or $8 will count as your official contest wager. 
  • A $9 Win bet counts as your basketball game selection, on the "favorite" or team with the lower seeding number (e.g. 1, 2, 3, etc.)
  • An $8 Win bet counts as your basketball game selection, on the "underdog" or team with the higher seeding number (e.g. 13, 14, 15, etc.)
  • Basketball selections are to win the game outright; no point spreads.

How to Win

  • Each day, Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20, features a separate contest.
  • In the four contest races, a winning contest wager will count as two points toward a player's score.
  • In the four basketball games, a winning selection will count as one point toward a player's score.
  • The most points any player can earn is 12 points per day.
