Who wants to be a multi-millionaire?
A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool at Gulfstream Park West Sunday opens the possibility that a lucky bettor could walk away with a multi-million-dollar payoff.
The Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 39th racing day in a row during the Fall Turf Festival meet Saturday, producing a carryover jackpot of $1,094,464 for Sunday, when betting on the popular multi-race wager is expected to generate a multi-million-dollar pool.
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, bettors holding tickets with the most winners will share in the entire pool.
There will also be mandatory payouts for the Late Pick 5, Late Pick 4 and the last-race Super Hi-5.
Multiple Rainbow 6 tickets with all six winners Saturday were each worth $3,251.28.
The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot stood at $1,028,040.19 at the start of Rainbow 6 wagering Saturday, when a total of $276,816 was bet into the multi-race pool.
The Rainbow 6 was solved at Gulfstream Park for a $2.2 million jackpot payoff Sept. 27 after going unsolved for 47 consecutive racing days.
First-race post time for Sunday's card is set for 12:30 p.m.
Sunday's Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 4-9.
There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $3,783.28 heading into Saturday's program.
