A company that lets you bet on a $1,000-to-1 horse race, called The Casino Game, has opened its doors in Chicago.

The Chicago Board is offering the casino a prize of $500 if you beat the record, and $300 if you win the record.

You can play The Casino at The Casino Club, on the South Side, or in the nearby Grand Prairie.
