HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 45th racing day in a row Sunday, producing a carryover jackpot to $1,852,653.42 for Wednesday’s program at Gulfstream Park. First-race post time Wednesday is set for 1:15 p.m.
Multiple tickets with all six winners Sunday were each worth $19,507.96.
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.
The Rainbow 6 was last solved July 6, when one lucky bettor cashed a $173,583.90 jackpot payoff.
The carryover jackpot stood at $1,763,111 at the start of Rainbow 6 wagering Sunday, when a total of $373,127 was bet into the multi-race pool.
There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $2,481.74 heading into Wednesday’s card
