TwinSpires.com Announces Innovative New Jackpot 5 Wager

TwinSpires.com, the official advance-deposit wagering service for Churchill Downs Incorporated (NASDAQ: CHDN), is launching an innovative new wager, the Jackpot 5, on Saturday, August 17.
 
The Jackpot 5 is an action packed $1 Pick 5 wager available only at TwinSpires.com.  The bet will feature races from multiple race tracks and will typically be completed within 90 minutes. The inaugural offering of the Jackpot 5 will feature a $25,000 seeded carryover pool funded entirely by TwinSpires.com. 
 
There are two ways to win with each $1 Jackpot 5 wager.  First, in order to win the Jackpot pool, a player must have the only unique ticket with all five winners in the Jackpot 5.  Second, there is a Show Pick 5 which pays out to all winning tickets with a horse that finishes third or better in all five Jackpot 5 races. 
 
“We are tremendously excited to introduce this innovative wagering opportunity,” said Jeremy Clemons, TwinSpires.com Vice President of Marketing.  “We anticipate the wager will produce large carryovers and the opportunity for a life-changing score.  Additionally, by jump-starting the pool with a $25,000 carryover we ensure the wager is a tremendous value for players.” 
 
The first Jackpot 5 on Arlington Million Day will feature the Secretariat, the Beverly D and the Arlington Million from Arlington Park, as well as races from Louisiana Downs and Indiana Downs.  TwinSpires.com will be providing free Brisnet Ultimate Past Performances and free expert analysis for the Jackpot 5.  The free handicapping information along with current carryover information and past results will be available at www.twinspires.com/Jackpot5.  
 
“We are thrilled the first TwinSpires.com Jackpot 5 will be on Arlington Million Day,” said Tony Petrillo, General Manager of Arlington International Racecourse.  “We believe the innovation of the Jackpot 5 will bring even more attention to one of the country’s biggest international racing events and our most prestigious races in the simulcast market.”
 
TwinSpires.com currently plans to offer the Jackpot 5 every Friday, Saturday and Sunday with the first leg usually starting just after 4:00 pm EST. When the carryover pool in the Jackpot 5 eclipses $500,000, the next Jackpot 5 will convert to a traditional Pick 5 wager and will feature a mandatory payout distributed to all winning tickets.
