A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool on closing day of the Fall Turf Festival at Gulfstream Park West Sunday yielded a $1,464.30 payoff for each ticket with all six winners.
The carryover jackpot is only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day's pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool. However, on mandatory-payout days, the whole pool is disbursed among all those holding tickets with the most winners.
The popular multi-race wager had gone unsolved for the nine consecutive racing days since Nov. 8, when a single ticket hit for a $71,152.16 jackpot payoff.
Wagering on the Rainbow 6 Sunday began with a carryover of $123,818.96, which generated a handle of $637,162 for the six-race sequence that spanned Races 5-10.
