Qualifiers and feeders begin this week for Treasure Island’s “Wager to Win” contests on Kentucky Derby weekend. This year’s Wager to Win weekend will consist of THREE individual contests held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 2-4, 2014, at Treasure Island in Las Vegas (the host of the NHC).
Simply put, this is one of the best value propositions ever offered in handicapping contests. The gist:
-Three (3) individual contests held Friday through Sunday, May 2-4
-EACH contest pays back 100 PERCENT of entry fees in the form of prize money to top finishers
-In addition, EACH of the three contests will award FOUR (4) Full Packages to the 2015 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship, including airfare and 4-night hotel stay at Treasure Island.
-Entry fees are $250/per event, with a maximum of 200 unique players. Each contestant may purchase up to two (2) entries per contest, thus a maximum of 400 entries per event.
The above prize structure means that the NTRA packages are being fully subsidized by Treasure Island, resulting in terrific value for players looking to both qualify to the NHC and be eligible for healthy prize money. For any serious contest player, this is pretty much a must-visit.
For full details on the contests, see the Official Rules here.
Qualifiers at HorseTourneys will carry entry fees of $60/each, and will award one entry to each of the three events ($750 total in entry fees) PLUS $500 travel reimbursement to pay for transportation to Las Vegas. Packages will be awarded on a 1 per 25 entries basis.
Daily Feeders will cost $17 and will award one $60 direct entry into main qualifiers per every four (4) entries participating. The first feeder will be run on Wednesday, March 5, with the first main qualifier held Sunday, March 16. Qualifiers will be held weekly from then through the end of April.
