Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival is an iconic event on the Australian sporting and social calendar. This year’s carnival stretches 65 days during which more than $40 million in prizemoney will be awarded.
And thanks to PokerMedia Australia (PMA) and Centrebet, you could be at the heart of the action when the spotlight shifts to Flemington for the Melbourne Cup Carnival in November.
Qualifying events for the Spring Carnival Ultimate VIP Experience playoff have been running weekly on Centrebet since June, with the top two finishers winning through to the final on Wednesday, September 28.
The final qualifier had been scheduled for Tuesday, September 20 but to celebrate the launch of pokermedia.com.au, the team at Centrebet have kindly agreed to add a special PMA Last Chance Qualifier on Sunday, September 25 at 7.30pm (AEST).
Not only will players be battling for a share of $2000 in Bonus Bets (see payout structure below), the winner will qualify for the final where he or she will join a field of just 30 players for a shot at these sensational prizes:
