Step 1 .5 — Free vs. Paid

Every player who signs up for Photo Finish™ LIVE gets a free Trainer Horse. If you want to try things out, your free horse is already waiting in your stable, and you can skip to Part Three

If you’re here to earn real money rewards, keep reading.

Note: FREE Trainer Horses are only eligible to enter free races in the “Free Races” area of the site. They cannot race for money, breed, or be sold.


Photo Finish ™ LIVE is more than just a game; it’s an esport where horses race for real money.

The in-game economy runs on $DERBY. To buy horses and race for real money, you’ll need to pick some up.

Don’t worry; $DERBY can be cashed out at any time.

Start by looking at the top of the page and clicking on the silver currency icon with the horseshoe, then clicking the Fund Wallet button.

Alternatively, you can click here to go directly to the funding page.

You can always use cryptocurrency to purchase DERBY; $1.00 = 80 $DERBY. If you want to use a credit card, you must first validate your identity. Race entry fees can range from 600 $DERBY to over 20,000 $DERBY for the highest stakes races.

Whatever your budget is, there will be a place for you!

When ready, click Next and head to Part 2 of the article on Buying a Horse.
