Edited Delta Downs Release – Delta Downs Racetrack Casino & Hotel today announced that it will lower the takeout rate on all Pick 4 and Pick 5 waging pools from 25% to 12% beginning Wednesday, December 13. The new rate will be in effect through the end of the season, Saturday, February 24.
The lower takeout rate will mean more money returned to racing fans that hold winning tickets each night. The track offers a pair of Pick 4’s and Pick 5’s on each live program. The Early Pick 5 begins on the first race each night, and the Late Pick 5 takes place on the final five races.
