Ten Reasons to Play Stay Lucky This Summer


If you’re the type of person who likes winning stuff without risking anything, there’s no smarter move than downloading the free Stay Lucky app from America’s Best Racing, sponsored by the Breeders’ Cup.

It’s such a no-brainer that we’re laying out the 10 most obvious reasons for you to get on Stay Lucky and play this weekend, just in time for the app’s relaunch!

1. Win a Million Dollars

That’s no typo. When you play Stay Lucky, you’re eligible to win a million dollars — no strings attached! The point of the game is to correctly select winning horses each week. You’re only required to make one selection a week from eligible contest races on the app but you may play as many races as you like. As your winning streak builds, you win prizes. Be the first to run your streak to 20 races and the million bucks is all yours.

2. Win Other Cool Stuff

If picking 20 straight winners sounds too daunting, well, it should be — we’re giving away a million bucks after all! But that isn’t all we’re giving away. Start building your streak this weekend and start collecting prizes as soon as you pick your fifth straight winner. Prizes include discounts on racing T-shirts from Old Smoke Clothing Co., memberships to the NHC Tour, free subscriptions to STATS Race Lens, designer hats from Christine A. Moore Millinery, a horse ownership experience with West Point Thoroughbreds, and a free VIP trip to the Breeders’ Cup.

3. It’s Free

There’s nothing better than free. Stay Lucky is your only source for weekly action that feels just as exciting as betting on the races and the best part of all is that you don’t have to risk a dollar of your own money.

4. It’s Fast

Registration on Stay Lucky takes a matter of seconds. All you have to do is download the app and sign up using your name, date of birth, email address, and a username of your choice. Get that done and you’re ready to play!

5. It’s Optimized

Just as quickly as you download and log into Stay Lucky, you’ll be breezing through the newly optimized app which is faster and more user-friendly than ever before. Our tech guys listen to what players wanted and have gotten rid of lots of the bugs that made the app a bit glitchy in the past — we can admit it. But the user experience now is something we’re proud of and we’re confident you’ll love it.

6. Fresh Content Every Week

Not only is Stay Lucky a free contest app, it’s your one-stop shop for everything you need to know about the world of racing. You’ll find all of your favorite featured content from americasbestracing.net integrated into the Stay Lucky app, including previews of races that you can make selections in while playing the race on Stay Lucky.

7. Easy-to-Track Stats and Leaderboard

It’s easy to keep an eye on the competition on Stay Lucky. The leaderboard is updated overnight (after all contest races have concluded) every night along with your own personal stats in the “My Profile” section. You’ll be able to stay on top of your current streak and look back at your best streaks.

8. Smart Players Play Stay Lucky

You’ll be happy to know that while we created Stay Lucky as a contest app to get new players involved in racing, many Stay Lucky users are seasoned pros. In fact, one of Stay Lucky’s biggest fans is multiple-time NHC qualifier and ESPN College GameDay personality Chris Fallica. If “The Bear” makes the time to play Stay Lucky every week, what’s your excuse not to?

9. Top Picks and Pro Picks

If you feel stumped on any individual week or if you just want to compare notes, picks from our betting pros are available every week on Stay Lucky. Find a pro that you like and play along with their selections or be bold and try to beat the experts by playing against them.

10. Risk-Free Way to Learn to Bet

Have you been wanting to dive into betting the races, but just feel intimidated? Stay Lucky is a risk-free, safe way to hone your skills before you start betting your hard-earned cash. Get the hang of picking winners on the app and you can be placing real bets and winning real money in no time!
