Gulfstream's 10-Cent Rainbow 6 Rewarding Fans With Lucrative Payoffs
While the ultimate goal of every player this afternoon is to have the only winning ticket on Gulfstream's $1.3 million 10-cent Rainbow 6, being a consolation winner the past few weeks has provided some rewarding payoffs as well.
The 10-cent Rainbow 6, which is paid out when there is only one unique ticket with the winners of Gulfstream's last six races, has not been hit since Dec. 29. As the pool continues to grow, fans who hold one of the multiple tickets with six winners see the consolation payoffs continue to grow.
While there was no unique winning ticket on Friday's Rainbow 6, those having six-of-six winners were paid $14,308.67 and Thursday's winners received $10,276.72. Some of the other consolation payouts have been $31,202.20 (Jan. 20) and $8,933.51 (Jan. 26).
If there is no unique winning ticket on the Rainbow 6, 60 percent of the day's pool is paid out while 40 percent is carried over.
Gulfstream's 10-cent wager climbed as high as $5.1 million in 2011. The biggest single winning ticket was $791,364.73.
