October 22, 2014 (Washington, PA) – Xpressbet, the Official Wagering Partner of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, is pleased to announce that the Grand Prize winner of its $10K Breeders’ Cup Big Bet Sweepstakes is Bill Gamberino of Ocala, Florida. Gamberino will be treated to a VIP trip, including tickets, hotel accommodations and airfare, to this year’s Breeders’ Cup, where he will make his $10,000 Win bet on the Xpressbet Sprint.
Gamberino was randomly selected as the Grand Prize winner from a pool of thousands of registrants who earned entries for every bet they made with Xpressbet between September 19 and October 20. In addition, 50 customers were chosen as Second Prize winners and each received a $50 Xpressbet wagering voucher.
This is the fourth Big Bet Sweepstakes that Xpressbet has offered this year. Earlier this year, Xpressbet customers Tom Guadagno and Scott Shore turned $10,000 Win bets on the Florida Derby and Santa Anita Derby into paydays of $43,000 and $17,000, respectively. And in the $50K Preakness Big Bet Sweepstakes, Tim Lanning ‘let it ride’ on California Chrome and cashed for $75,000. All 3 winners raved about not only the opportunity to make their Big Bet, but also the experience of doing so at marquee events hosted by racing’s premier venues.
“Everybody at Xpressbet is cheering for Bill and we really hope that he can cap a perfect year for our winners with their Big Bets,” said Xpressbet Senior Vice President of Marketing, Kerry Carlson. “And in addition to his bet, we’re excited to make sure he has an unforgettable experience at Santa Anita for the Breeders’ Cup.”
