What is Giddy Up Sweeps?

Giddy Up Sweeps is a free-to-enter sweepstakes competition offering $80,000 in cash prizes, with additional prizes awarded to VRC members who play.

The game is run on the world-famous Lexus Melbourne Cup, and anyone can enter and play (subject to T&C). But the main prize is just the start, with other cash prizes to be awarded too.

Here's how it works:

  • Join Giddy Up Sweeps and you are automatically entered into the Lexus Melbourne Cup Sweep.
  • All entrants are randomly assigned a horse in the 2021 Lexus Melbourne Cup and if your horse wins, you then go into the draw for the major $50,000 cash prize!
  • Big cash prizes awarded for the second and third place runners too - see the Prize Table below.
