“We expect the Mega 6 to attract interest among typical lottery players, while offering serious horse players an opportunity for big rewards,” Vice President and General Manager of Racing John Marshall said. “And the Mega 6 joins the Calder Pick 5, with its industry low takeout of 12 percent, to offer the best value on the wagering dollar of any Pick 5 or Pick 6 in horse racing.”
When a single 10-cent winning combination does not exist, 60 percent of the pool will be distributed equally among players selecting the most winners, while 40 percent of the pool enters the jackpot and carries over until won by a single 10-cent winning combination.
There are two mandatory payouts for the Calder Mega 6 Jackpot this year. The first will occur on Friday, August 31, the final day of the Calder Meet, with the second mandatory payout on Friday, November 30, closing day of the Tropical Meet.
The Mega 6 can be played on self-service terminals and FastBet Mobile at Calder, at off-track betting facilities in Florida and around the country, and on TwinSpires.com.
