Big payoffs continue at the Meadowlands
« Return to News
Competitive racing, a sloppy track and a strong anti-speed track bias gave the chalk players fits Friday night at the Meadowlands, but for those who love to go for the big score, everything was just fine.
Only three favorites emerged victorious on the 13-race card (only one in the first 11 races), which created some large payoffs for the Big M faithful, who love their multi-leg wagers.
For starters, the 20-Cent Survivor Pick 10 saw a total pool of $17,432, and one player, wagering into the Mid Atlantic cooperative, walked away as the only winner, cashing in for $14,817 for surviving six legs.
The Pick-5, which is guaranteed at $25,000, saw $39,786 in action, and when the sequence concluded in Race 7, those with winning tickets walked away with $8,454 for a 50-cent bet.
The Late 20-Cent Jackpot Super High failed to result in a single-ticket winner, but those who had the winning combination of 6-1-3-8-2 aren't complaining, as those tickets were worth $1,932. The carryover continues to expand, as it now stands at $112,904.
