Officials with the online game ‘10 Wins 10’ have sent out an update about how the endeavour is going.
After having completed a successful two-month trial horse racing game on March 31 that registered 3,129 millennial players from the USA and Canada, 10 Wins 10’s founder/horseman Joel Benson is very optimistic that tracks will want to host the game.
“This was a pilot/test for the soon to be released ‘20 Wins A Million’ promotional game launching at major Thoroughbred and harness tracks across North America this summer,” said Benson. “And we could not be happier with the results.”
There were 3,129 players, many new-to-racing millennials, who signed up and played for a free chance to select 10 winning races in a row and win the grand prize of $10,000.
No one was able to claim the $10,000 grand prize, but five players from different parts of North America each had streaks of seven straight winners and split the $500 consolation prize. The consolation winners were Frank Aquilino, Todd Chapman, Dennis Klein, John Napier and Barry Pon.
“Thanks for the contest, looking for the next one. Ya'll did a good job,” said Todd Chapman of El Paso, Texas.
“It was a great game, you should do more in the future, and it keeps you thinking all the time. I enjoyed it very much,” replied Frank Aquilino of Yardley, PA.
“Results from the trial period in terms of running the IT was invaluable,” Benson said. “We have shown the game to dozens of interested tracks and they are coming on board. It will be exciting for everyone in the industry when we debut the big game this summer.”
