From an Xpressbet release

Leading US-based online wagering provider, Xpressbet, is excited to announce that its $25K Preakness Big Bet Sweepstakes is returning for a third consecutive year.  The Big Bet gives Xpressbet customers the opportunity to win an unforgettable trip to this year’s Preakness Stakes, along with $25,000 to bet on their pick in the Preakness.

In addition to the $25,000 Big Bet, the Grand Prize package includes VIP accommodations for two at Pimlico on Preakness and Black-Eyed Susan Days, as well as airfare and three-nights hotel accommodations in Baltimore.  50 Second Prize winners will each receive a $100 Xpressbet wagering voucher.

“As the Official Wagering Partner of the Preakness Stakes, Xpressbet is in a great position to offer its customers unique and memorable experiences involving the Second Leg of the Triple Crown,” said Xpressbet President, Ron Luniewski.  “Preakness Day at Pimlico is one of the most exciting days in North American racing, and we’re excited to give one of our customers a chance to cash a life-changing bet while they’re enjoying the races there.”

Last year’s Grand Prize winner, Tim Lanning of Palm Coast, Florida, turned his Preakness Big Bet into a once-in-a-lifetime payday when he successfully identified California Chrome as the race’s likeliest winner and placed his Big Bet on the popular three-year-old colt from California.
