Wednesday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed at $800,000
The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $800,000 Wednesday at Gulfstream Park.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the ninth consecutive racing day Sunday, when multiple tickets will all six winners were each worth $225.90.
The Rainbow 6 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.
