Play Carnival City’s Sweepstakes to win a share of R30 000 in cash every race day

Carnival City’s virtual horse racing promo, Carnival Sweepstakes, promises punters loads of pulse-racing action and the chance to win a share of R30 000 in cash each race day. The first prize up for grabs to the punter who chooses three horses in the order that they finish the race is a healthy R25 000. The second prize for the player who chooses two horses in the right order wins R5 000.

Should the first prize of R25 000 not be won, R5 000 will roll-over to the next race day. Carnival Sweepstakes takes place every Tuesday at 21h00 and on Saturdays at 18h00 and 22h00 in the MVG Lounge. Carnival Sweepstakes is open to all Sun International MVG cardholders. Participating is easy; simply earn five points playing the slots to exchange for a race ticket. Virtual horse racing enthusiasts can enter up to a maximum of 20 tickets per race. Ticket issuing closes 15 minutes before the start of each race.
