Ties for Xpressbet Showdown Tournament Seats

  • First Tie-breaker: The player with the single highest winning contest mutuel payoff of all tied players will be ranked above the others. If a tie still remains, the player with the second-highest single mutuel payoff of all tied players will be ranked above the others. This process will continue until the tie is broken.
  • Final Tie-Breaker: If two (2) or more players remain tied after the first tie-breaker procedure has been exhausted, the final tie-breaker will go to the player who chronologically is first to register for the Xpressbet Live Tournament.

Things You Should Know

  • Player wagering accounts will be credited with winnings for all competition wagers and debited for all losing wagers.
  • Mutuel payoffs are capped at 20-1 ($420) for contest scoring purposes.
  • Scratched horses count zero in the competition. If a player has submitted a Contest Wager on a scratched horse, the player may submit a second single $20 live online win wager on another horse in the race before the race is run and once the scratch has been processed by the tote.
  • All decisions are final.
