IMO a $1 bet with 15% takeout sounds like a good bet.
There will always be the fact that the smaller bettor must compete against the whales.
For the last 20+ years the NYRA pick 6 has been a $2 bet. When the nice weather comes and races have 10-12 horses of maidens or firsters ....it's a horrible bet.

I agree, that's about what it's been, and I've been a critic for many years of that fact if you've followed my posts, but I think some are attempting to re-think their positions to increase those handles, and I've got a feeling that there's more to come !!
Give them a break Luc, someone's finally trying !!!!

How can it be a good bet?  you have a very good probability you wont hit 6 out 6 and even if you do hit it there has to be one ticket.  its a sucker bet if it was a 10 cent base wager it would be slightly better but still a sucker bet and at a dollar base an expensive sucker bet...

Unique Winning Ticket Provision: The net Pick (n) pool and carryover, if any, shall be distributed to the holder of a unique winning ticket that selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. The minor share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the second greatest number of Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish. If there is no unique winning ticket selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, or if there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher of all Pick (n) contests, the minor share of the net Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests, and the major share shall be added to the carryover. Unique winning ticket, as used in this subsection, shall be defined as having occurred when there is one and only one winning ticket that correctly selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish, to be verified by the unique serial number assigned by the tote company that issued the winning ticket. In the event that there is more than one winning ticket that correctly selected the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, based upon the official order of finish, the unique winning ticket shall be deemed to not have occurred.
Section 308.30 Dead Heats
If there is a dead heat for first in any of the Pick (n) contests involving:
a) contestants representing the same betting interest, the Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as if no dead heat occurred.
b) contestants representing two or more betting interests, the Pick (n) pool shall be distributed as a single price pool with each winning wager receiving an equal share of the profit.
Section 308.40 Scratches
Should a betting interest in any of the Pick (n) contests be scratched, the actual favorite, as evidenced by total amounts wagered in the Win pool at the closing of wagering on that contest, shall be substituted for the scratched betting interest for all purposes, including pool calculations. In the event that the Win pool total for two or more favorites is identical, the substitute selection shall be the betting interest
with the lowest program number. The totalizator shall produce reports showing
each of the wagering combinations with substituted betting interests that became
winners as a result of the substitution, in addition to the normal winning
combination.
Section 308.50 Cancellation of Races
a) The Pick (n) pool shall be canceled and all Pick (n) wagers for the individual
performance shall be refunded if:
1) at least two contests included as part of a Pick 3 are canceled or declared "no
contest".
2) at least three contests included as part of a Pick 4 or Pick 5 are canceled or
declared "no contest"
3) at least four contests included as part of a Pick 6 or Pick 7 are canceled or
declared "no contest".
4) at least five contests included as part of a Pick 8 or Pick 9 are canceled or
declared "no contest".
5) at least six contests included as part of a Pick 10 or Pick 11 are canceled or
declared "no contest".
b) If at least one contest included as part of a Pick (n) is canceled or declared "no
contest", but not more than the number specified in subsection (a), the net pool
shall be distributed as a single price pool to those whose selection finishes first in
the greatest number of Pick (n) contests for that performance. Such distribution
shall include the portion ordinarily retained for the Pick (n) carryover but not the
carryover from previous performances.
Section 308.60 Carryover Cap
The Pick (n) carryover may be capped at a designated level approved by the State
Director of Mutuels so that if, at the close of any performance, the amount in the Pick
(n) carryover equals or exceeds the designated cap, the Pick (n) carryover will be
frozen until it is won or distributed under Section 308.70. After the Pick (n)
carryover is frozen, 100 percent of the net pool, part of which ordinarily would be
added to the Pick (n) carryover, shall be distributed to those whose selection
finished first in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests for that performance.
Section 308.70 Mandatory Distribution
a) A written request for permission to distribute the Pick (n) carryover on a specific performance may be substituted to the State Director of Mutuels. The request must contain justification for the distribution, an explanation of the benefit to be derived, and the intended date and performance for the distribution.
b) Should the Pick (n) carryover be designated for distribution on a specified date and performance in which there are no wagers selecting the first-place finisher in each of the Pick (n) contests, the entire pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those whose selection finished first in the greatest number of Pick (n) contests.
Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs reserves the right to cancel this wager at their discretion

This was the big news?  laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy


It will take 4 weeks for the pool to get to the guarantee.

No one wants to bet the shit hole, and it is a crime that they were awarded the breeders crown again. They couldn't even handle 3 million when they had it 2 years ago. It should never be at a place like this.

The event of the year and you hold it at a track that handles shit. Total Joke

Oh, and by the way, There's going to be more news today that will probably create even greater interest !!

Those of you who don't like the Rainbow pick 6 for all of the reasons you've given (I don't agree), There will be something for everybody !!

Well, maybe except TK since he is 100% negative on Pocono Downs !!
 Grin

Stay tuned !!!!
