TVG has a new (currently targeted, I believe) promotion where the player starts with a $1000 fun money bankroll. The player must complete 10 questions during the contest period (which I think is the weekend). Questions are "yes" or "no". Whatever is left at the end goes into player's TVG account for making real wagers. Each question is available about 1 hour prior to post time for that race.

First question for today was based on first race at Gulfstream: "Will W W Concerto (ml 8/5) win ? He has not finished outside of the top 2 in his last 6 races. To player then has to split up the remaining bankroll on "yes" or "no" based on how they think the 8 year old gelding will finish (horse won). The money "wagered" on the correct result is then available for next question until player is out of funds or 10 questions have been completed. The system is setup up so that you cannot answer more than one question at a time. You must wait until each race is finalized before making another wager. There does not appear to be a way to "undo" a question, so answering question 3 of 10 available makes it impossible to complete the game if you start on Sunday. Answers can be edited until published start time, not when windows close for betting. Returns are rounded to whole dollars, so you cannot 50/50 your way to a free $0.97.

It won't let me post a link, but it is at cashkeeper subdomain of tvggames site.

Anyone doing this? Thoughts on the promotion?

This is a trial run apparently. TVG first mentioned it in March. They posted a preview on Twitter yesterday stating that the game will be released "soon" around the same time they sent out the invite emails.

TVG has a lot of good promotions. Not sure why APs donít take advantage more often.

The promotion is live again and I think it is open to everyone now. Well, everyone expect people in Alabama, Alaska, Georgia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin.. It runs June 14-15 this week. Same rules as last time.

That's interesting, only 4 of 13 no. In the past I had been starting out big. In fact one week I did $1000 each and hit the first 4 correct. Then blew it on the 5th. This week I started at 600/400 and I've been going since yesterday. After answering 9 of 10 I have $28 left.
