To participate in POOL 250 Ltd Daily Racing Leagues you will need to abide by the following guidelines and rules:
The points system is as follows:
Bonus points only apply to races with 5 or more horses running in a race. Bonus points only apply if your selection is placed in the top 4 places. Bonus points are awarded on the price of your selection and are as follows:
When making their selections, participating players have the option of taking the current price advertised by POOL 250 at the point of selection or SP (Starting Price) which will be the odds of the horse at the off. The price or SP of the horse that is taken at the time that selection is made will determine the bonus points that can be achieved for that race. In the event that prices are unavailable at the time of making their selections, then the SP (Starting price) will apply.
The players with the most points at the end of each meeting and placed in a prize position within that league are eligible for a percentage of the win fund and paid out accordingly. The amount of winning league positions depends on the amount of players who enter that league. Here is the general guide for pay-out positions:
