A lucky rain dance in your jocks on the roof chanting Jezki’s name?

Praying to the racing Gods next to a shrine dedicated to Barry Geraghty and Nicky Henderson?

Sneaking out of your cousin’s wedding to do study form in the bog?

Where will you watch the Cheltenham Festival?

Show Paddy Power your best videos using the brilliant new Vine app and you’ll have the chance to win a £100 free bet and the admiration of the Paddy Power office, your family and friends.

What is Vine?

Vine is a downloadable app that lets you create and share short videos. Six seconds, to be precise so there is no messing around. It’s the new in-thing all the cool kids love so jump on the band-wagon now. Otherwise you’ll be that person stood in the corner of the room at a party with nobody to talk to because everyone else loves Vine.

Click here for some examples of Vines people have created. To be honest, yours will need to be considerably funnier and a lot more mental to win the free bets, this is just to give you an idea of how Vine works.

So what do I need to do to cash in on those free bets?

  • Tweet @paddypower a Vine video showing where you plan to watch the Cheltenham Festival, or where you are watching it.
  • Use the original hashtag #LuckyPants.

It sounds so easy even Joey Essex could figure it out, but remember to download the Vine app first.

Once you have tweeted your entry you will be automatically put up on our flash-looking leaderboard. Your position on the board is determined by how many retweets you receive so clearly having a few willing friends to give you some votes is handy. This is what’s up for grabs if you tickle the Twitter-sphere.

1st £100 free bet
2nd £50 free bet
3rd £30 free bet
4th £30 free bet
5th £30 free bet

Remember, the funnier and more surreal your video is the more likely it is to get supported on the leaderboard and you’ll be in with a chance of winning. Please try to keep them clean though. Our mums read the Blog and the last thing we need them seeing is you sticking a firework up your arse and chanting ‘Come on, Overturn’. That not only endangers your life but the horse is awful too.
