Thoroughbred Racing Fans Now Enjoy a Day at the Races 24/7


Run for the Roses Horse Racing Simulation Just Released

San Diego, CA May 1, 2005 / New Millenium Software is proud to announce the release of a new and innovative thoroughbred racing simulation named Run for the Roses. The Texas Holdem poker craze has prompted a new form of casual betting around the world – put a few bucks in the pot, play a tournament, and divvy up the pot to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

Run for the Roses was designed with that opportunity in mind. “While we always support responsible gambling,” said Steve Krieger, Executive Producer for New Millenium Software, “there’s nothing more enjoyable than getting friends together, putting together a pot, and then seeing who makes the best wagers throughout a 12-race venue.”

Run for the Races realistically simulates a day at the races. Whether the player is a casual bettor, or spends hours analyzing past racing data before placing a wager, this simulation fills the bill. The in-game racing form provides historical information on each horse, just like you purchase at the track.

Up to six players can select bankrolls based on their wagering experience - to provide a handicap to the experts, if desired. The racing form can be printed and reviewed prior to the beginning of the raceday and then wagers are placed in real time. Just as at the track, there is limited time until the next race.

Run for the Roses appeals to the seasoned handicapper, as well as to the bettor who prefers to place wagers based on the horse’s name or the jockey. The 300 horses and 20 jockeys have individual and independent attributes that drive their on-track behavior. “The real challenge at the racetrack is to spot information in the racing form that the betting crowd doesn’t see – that’s where you make the big money”, said Kirk Krieger, Expert Advisor for New Millenium Software. “Run for the Roses provides that same opportunity to the ace handicapper.”

Based near San Diego, CA, New Millenium Software was founded in 2001 to focus on PC gaming. Currently in development is CardShark2, scheduled for Fall 2005, and Dark Stream, a first-person adventure game created for the vision-impaired, and expected in 2006.
