Milton, ON — Woodbine Entertainment today announced a mandatory payout for the Standardbred Jackpot Hi-5 will be offered on Saturday (Dec. 19) at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
With the carryover currently sitting at $293,196.71, horseplayers will have two more opportunities to try and hit the Jackpot Hi-5 ahead of the mandatory payout, as the wager and carryover will be frozen following this Saturday’s (Dec. 12) card in preparation for the mandatory payout on Dec. 19.
Woodbine Entertainment has offered a Jackpot Hi-5 mandatory payout ahead of the holidays in each of the last several years.
The Jackpot Hi-5 requires horseplayers to select the top five finishers in order. A horseplayer can only win the entire jackpot if they hold the only winning ticket for that evening’s wager. If there are multiple winning tickets, half the pool is paid out, while the other half is added to the carryover.
The entire carryover will be paid out, plus new money wagered, during the mandatory payout on Dec. 19. The Jackpot Hi-5 has a 20-cent minimum and a 15 percent takeout.
Post time for live racing on Friday and Saturday at Woodbine Mohawk Park is 7 p.m.
