London – The RaceO 8 jackpot reaches another landmark this Saturday as punters play for yet another record pool of £472,000.

The prize fund total is up 18 per cent on last week after the jackpot remained unclaimed for another week. Overall the jackpot fund has grown by a mouth-watering 150 per cent in only three months.

RaceO’s managing director Steve Soden says: “Despite the disruptive weather last weekend our jackpot continues its steady ascent and we are ready to write a cheque for almost half a million pounds to our first big winner. For the second weekend in a row it’s the biggest prize up for grabs in UK racing.”

Punters must identify the winner of all the day’s eight chosen races to knock over the RaceO 8 jackpot or find six or seven winners for meaty consolation prizes.

RaceO 8 is an innovative pool bet that offers punters the chance to win bumper jackpots from a £2 stake. RaceO partners with Timeform to rank horses for punters and offer a range of beginner friendly betting options, such as grouping outsiders as a single pick to ensure fields are restricted to a maximum of eight options.

RaceO will announce the eight races on Friday afternoon after the final declarations have been made.
