Home Box Office (HBO) is going all out to promote its new original series, Luck. The series is rumored to be quite a package and HBO isn’t leaving any stone unturned, giving it the adequate exposure before its launch. The series is set to kick start this January, end of month, from the 29th on Sunday at 9 pm. Tune in to what, HBO promises to be another riveting series, a hit amongst its long list of sound television series.
HBO is celebrating in grand style, the premiere of their original series, LUCK. HBO has tossed up a contest that is worth 50 grand in American dollars. The host to this contest is going to be Facebook. The Luck $50K challenge will be contested on a new and innovative application that has partnered to be launched exclusively on Facebook. The app is engineered to simulate a horseracing scenario. The application allows for the players to grab a chance at winning a whopping $50,000. The winnings are decided on the contestants’ choice of horses, from a series of six (REAL) well bred race horses.
The racing day for the event is going to be the night before the series LUCK airs on HBO. The event is to be hosted at both Santa Anita Park in Los Angeles and the Gulfstream Park in Miami. The six races have been collectively named as the ‘HBO Luck Pick Six’. The races are set to begin from 4pm. The contest has been strategically constructed to be equally challenging and enjoyable for both the ‘hard grinders ‘and for ‘the first timers’.
To participate in the challenge all you need to do is visit the application on Facebook, the Luck $50K Challenge, and get yourself enlisted. The proceedings start of once you have selected a horse. Then on the race day, the three horses that come in first would lead to earnings of points based on the odds of winning and the payouts. The rules are simple, like any other horse race, with the earning the highest when the odds of winning is the lowest. If the underdog wins and you bet on that horse, then you head home with a large chunk of the bounty. The application gives you chance to get used to this online version of horse racing, providing you with three simulations of how things are actually going to proceed on the race day, enabling you to get a good grasp of things.
