Pick 4 Players - Don't forget Cal Expo on Saturdays
CAL EXPO INCREASES SATURDAY NIGHT
LATE PICK 4 POOL GUARANTEE BY 50%
Cal Expo has announced that beginning this Saturday, April 2, the Late Pick 4 guaranteed gross pool has been increased by 50 percent to $15,000.
Both the Early and Late Pick 4’s on Saturday feature a reduced takeout of 15 percent, with a winner’s bonus payout of 17.65 percent on the Late Pick 4 to winning tickets that are purchased on track at Cal Expo or on TwinSpires.com.
“We are increasing the guarantee because of the overwhelming support and success of the Late Pick 4 promotion on Saturday nights,” said Cal Expo Director of Racing Dave Elliott. “The Cal Expo/Twin Spires promotion has produced an average handle increase of 37 percent and has resulted in bonus payouts approaching $10,000 since the promotion began on November 27, 2010.
“Our players have shown by their increased wagering that they approve of the Late Pick 4 promotion and we are hopeful the interest and handle on this wager will continue to grow as a result of increasing the guarantee by 50 percent, keeping the takeout at a 15 percent rate and offering the bonus payouts for those who wager at Cal Expo or on TwinSpires.com.” (Cal Expo)
Editor's Note: This is not part of the USTA's strategic wagering initiative. As such, program pages will not be provided for free by the USTA. Don't forget even if you don't have a Twin Spires account or live in the Cal Expo area, it is still a $15,000 guaranteed Pick 4 at a 15% takeout so it is worth playing anyway. If you have a Twin Spires account or wager at Cal Expo and you hit the Pick 4 the bonus means you have a 0% takeout rate.
