Last week, we had the weekly contest featuring the Sigma Derby. This week, you will see the evolution of the arcade horse racing arcade in the Fortune Cup horse racing machine.

The Fortune Cup horse racing machine is manufactured by Konami, and wow, it’s a nice machine compared to the past horse racing machines.

Rather than telling you about the Fortune Cup horse racing machine, let’s make it the center of this Weekly Contest. When the video goes live next Tuesday, you can see it in action.


For this weekly contest, there are three races in the above video.

The video above will go live on Tuesday, April 30, at approximately 12 noon eastern, 11 a.m. central.

You are to pick three horses for each of the three races. For each race, pick the horse for 1st (win), 2nd (place), 3rd (show).

There are 8 horses total for each race.

Your entry can be:

1: 2,3,4

2. 2,6,7

3, 6,1,9

Or, something like this will work:

657,812, 832

In the above entry, for race one, the winning horse is 6, place is 5, show is 7, etc.

As long as I can tell that you have three horses for three races, you are good to go.

The prize will be real chips from a real Las Vegas casino.


The scoring will be as such for correctly guessing the horse:

5 points for win horse

3 points for place horse

1 point for show horse

Whoever has the most points will win.

In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be determined by taking the points total among the tied entries and doubling the points total for race one to determine a winner. If there is still a tie, then I will double the points entry for race two. If there is still a tie, then I will double the points for race 3.

If there is still a tie, I’ll flip a coin.

If the coin lands on it’s side, well, I’ll just do what I did last week.

Good luck!
