April 9, 2018 (Washington, PA) – Interested in making the bet of a lifetime?  Is a VIP trip to the Preakness Stakes on your horse racing bucket list?  If so, then Xpressbet’s $25K Big Bet Sweepstakes is for you!  For the sixth consecutive year, Xpressbet is rewarding a lucky customer with a trip to the Preakness, as well as the opportunity to make a $25,000 Win bet on the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown. 

One of Xpressbet’s most popular promotions, the Big Bet Sweepstakes has taken five prior winners to Baltimore for the Preakness Stakes, where they’ve enjoyed lavish VIP accommodations while cheering their horse down the stretch at Pimlico.  Two previous winners even parlayed winning the Sweepstakes into a life-changing score, while all five left Baltimore with memories they’ll never forget. 

“The Big Bet is not just an opportunity for us to reward one of our customers with a trip and a potentially life-changing bet, but it also allows us to connect a passionate fan with one of our sport’s most prestigious and historic races,” said Xpressbet Senior Vice President of Marketing, Kerry Carlson.  “It gives us a lot of pride to see our winner experience the Preakness and soak up everything that makes it one of the world’s greatest sporting events.” 

In addition to the opportunity to make a $25,000 bet, the Grand Prize Package also includes a trip for two to Baltimore for the Preakness, complete with hotel, airfare and tickets on Preakness and Black-Eyed Susan Days.  Fifty Second Prize Winners each receive a $100 Xpressbet wagering voucher. 

To play, Xpressbet customers just need to register and bet the races.  Customers receive an entry for every bet they make between April 2 and May 6, 2018, and can earn bonus entries for wagers made on weekdays and on Stronach Group tracks, including Gulfstream, Santa Anita, Laurel, Pimlico and Golden Gate Fields.
