London, 24th January, 2007 – The new RaceO 8 jackpot pool rolls over to yet another record level of over £700,000* this weekend and maintains its position as the biggest prize available to racing punters.

The jackpot fund total is 16 per cent up on last week after the pot of over £590,000 went unclaimed.

The new money flowing into the guaranteed pool promises even bigger returns and payouts for punters who failed to take advantage of favourable odds last weekend.

The chances of winning the RaceO 8 last weekend were just over 220,000/1**, a figure that compares very favourably with the astronomical odds of over 3 million to one against the corresponding eight timer, a feat beyond even the luckiest pin. Punters benefit from a massive odds advantage because RaceO groups outsiders together and restricts each field to a maximum of eight options.***

RaceO’s managing director Steve Soden says: “The odds against dropping the RaceO 8 jackpot are very competitive because outsiders are grouped as one option. Our first six races were identical to those of the Scoop 6 and we returned odds of under 8000/1 against the Tote’s figure of close to 125,000/1. Why? Because a 16/1 outsider becomes a 3/1 shot on RaceO.”

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

RaceO’s flagship product RaceO 8 is a bet designed to revolutionise pool betting and introduce a new generation of gamers to the thrill of horse racing. Backed with a series of new products, the aim is to bring an influx of innovation and interest into the concept of pool betting. RaceO UK Online is a voluntary signatory to a Use and Access Agreement with the British Horseracing Board. Over and above these commitments, the firm remains committed to delivering significant revenues into the sport of horse racing.
