A Tote Ten to Follow Mini Game for Royal Ascot was launched by the Tote on Monday. Players can pick stables of 10 horses to compete across the five days of the Royal Meeting. It is £5 per paid game with unlimited entries allowed, with all stakes being redistributed as prizes and pay outs going down to the 500th position in the contest. There is also a free-to-play game with one free entry per person on offer. There are a number of racing-specific prizes for the free-to-play game supported by Ascot Racecourse including:
- 1st prize: 2022 annual membership for 2022, covering all racedays in the King Edward enclosure (except Royal Ascot)
- 2nd prize: Hospitality for two on Victoria Cup day in 2022
- 3rd prize: Two tickets for Royal Ascot 2022 (Tuesday or Wednesday)
Players have until 12 p.m. on June 15 to submit their stables. Points are scored when a horse wins or places and depend on the quality of the race and the price of the horse. The Mini Game has six bonus races which are worth an additional 25 points for a win and 12 points for finishing second. Those races are: the G1 Queen Anne S., G1 King's Stand S., G1 Prince of Wales S., G1 Gold Cup, G1 Commonwealth Cup and the G1 Diamond Jubilee S. The full list of eligible horses and the details on the scoring system and rules are available at www.tote.co.uk.
UK Tote Group Racing Director, Jamie Hart, said, “The new Ten to Follow Mini Game for the Cheltenham Festival proved hugely popular so we're excited to be introducing it for Royal Ascot. It's five days of top class Flat racing and we hope as many racing fans as possible will get involved–good luck.”
