Assiniboia Downs is offering a $1 million payout on Monday, Manitoba Derby Day, if there is a player who has the only winning ticket of the Jackpot Pick 5. If there is more than one winning ticket, all winners will share in the mandatory jackpot payout scheduled for that day which could exceed $1 million.
The pool for the Jackpot Pick 5 – which is offered on each day’s race card – has grown to $327,526. That amount will form part of the mandatory payout of the Jackpot Pick 5 on Derby Day.
“We really wanted to make a big bang this year with the Derby”, said CEO Darren Dunn. “And what better way to do that than with an unprecedented $1 million guarantee for a player with a single winning ticket."
The pool requires the correct selection of the winners of the last five races of the program. Tickets cost 20 cents per combination.
Following this event, the pool will have a $250,000 single winner payout guarantee every race day (Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays) starting on Tuesday through the remainder of the meet on Sep. 15 or until it is won.
“We are so excited to be able to offer this $250k guarantee on all race days,” continued Dunn. “This offer will certainly stand out during our weekday racing schedule and add some real value for fans.”
