WILKES-BARRE PA – The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono will have a major overhaul of its wagering format, primarily for multi-race bets, this weekend.
Saturday, July 31, will see a mandatory distribution of the Rainbow Pick 5 pool, with a carryover of $3047.45 added to that night’s wagering on picking the winners of the last five races.
Starting Sunday, August 1, the multi-race betting format at Pocono will look like this: Pick 2 (doubles) on the first two and last two races; two Pick 3s; two or three Pick 4s, depending on the number of races; and a Pick 5. The races involved with the last three bets will depend on the number of races that day.
The last race will feature a Pentafecta, in which the fan tries to pick the first five finishers in the day’s finale.
All Pick 3s, Pick 4s, Pick 5s, and Pentafectas, if they have no winning tickets, will carry over their entire pool to the next instance of the bet, whether that day or the next card afterward.
