Fundraising initiative based on Cheltenham Festival.

The Festival features four days of top class jump racing and hundreds of equine stars at the peak of their talents for what is the showpiece event for National Hunt racing. GamesAid has launched a tipping competition where the racing pundits and fans within the games industry will have the chance to put their skills on the line and win a Nintendo 3DS in the process.

Kindly donated by our friends at Konami, the 3DS comes with a copy of PES 2011 3DS, the latest version of the PES franchise and the first in 3D! In addition to that, our equally lovely pals at Nintendo have also donated three further launch titles, Super Street Fighter IV, Pilotwings Resort and Nintendogs.

Winning this prize couldn’t be easier. Wannabe tipsters need to pick twelve horses from a pre-selected list of entrants scheduled to run at the Festival from March 15 th to March 18 th. Depending on how the horse runs, they will either score or lose points for players and the highest total takes the first prize.

Andy Payne, Chairman of GamesAid, said: “As a horse racing lover and attendee of the Cheltenham Festival every year, this is a brilliant idea from GamesAid Ambassador, Steve Key. The competition is easy to enter and it will help raise money for GamesAid as well as putting up the ‘must have’ gadget of 2011 a Nintendo 3DS. What better way of spending a tenner! ”
