A free online qualifier for the National Horseplayers Championship (NHC) is set for Sunday on HorsePlayers.com, the official online qualifying site of the NHC. The top three finishers will earn automatic berths to the NTRA National Horseplayers Championship, to be held February 8-10, 2019, at Treasure Island Las Vegas. Each winning prize package includes NHC entry, four nights at Treasure Island and airfare reimbursement up to $400.

Registration is now open at https://horseplayers.com/contest/311839.

This past January’s NHC 19 offered a record prize pool worth more than $2.9 million, including an $800,000 first-place prize.

For NHC Tour purposes, the top 100 finishers will earn shares of a points pool, awarded on a sliding scale, from 3,750 for first to 327 for 100th. The 2018 NHC Tour is the richest in history with $400,000 in prize money, including $100,000 to the overall leader at the conclusion of the Tour season.

Sunday’s contest is open exclusively to NHC Tour members. Tour membership is $50 and includes entry to the year’s remaining free online qualifiers, as well as access to dozens of contests each week that start as low as $18. To sign up for the NHC Tour, go to www.ntra.com/membership. Individuals also must be registered at HorsePlayers.com.

Every free online contest on HorsePlayers.com is determined by mythical Win and Place wagers on a series of mandatory races across the country with selections submitted in advance of the first designated contest race per the “Pick and Pray” format.
