HotTrot Jackpot

Cheltenham 2017 is on the horizon and to mark the arrival of the greatest show on Turf, Paddy Power’s latest jaw-dropping racing competition Hot Trot Jackpot comes under starters orders at Sandown on Saturday.

It’s FREE TO ENTER and all you have to do is pick 5 horses from Saturday’s seven-race Sandown card. Whoever combines to produce the highest return from the fictional Lucky 31 bet, gets the cash (see T&C’s below).

It’s so easy, even Donald Trump could understand it.

So if you think you know your Brain Power from your Paddy Power, trot on over to the Hot Trot Jackpot page HERE to enter. Did we mention it was for FREE?

And seeing as it’s the first day, we’ve got ITV presenter Mick Fitzgerald to give you a steer on the four TV races where he’s gone for Gaitway (1.50pm), Upswing (2.25pm), Kayf Blanco (3pm) & Redhotfillypepper (3.35pm). Just don’t tell the bosses.


If two or more entrant’s returns are equal, the winner will be the entrant who:

  1. Has the most winning selections in the round
  2. Selects the closest answer of the Hot Trot Tiebreaker Question.  If two or more participants provide equally accurate predictions for the Hot Trot Tiebreaker Question, the game prize will be split equally among those participants.

The Jackpot Competition has a guaranteed prize of £10,000 (unless otherwise specified). The winner is determined as the entrant whose fictional £31 stake (a £1 Lucky 31) results in the highest return.

Consolation Prize: The top 10 participants in each competition will be awarded a free bet of £/€25. The top 10 participants are determined in order of entrants whose fictional £31 stake results in the highest return, and following that, by those who have the most winners and following that, the closest prediction for the Hot Trot Tiebreaker Question.
