Bonus and Doubler promotion yield $11,010 win
A bubbly Racetrax player who has only been playing the computer-animated horse racing game for six months can now call herself a pro after winning more than $11,000.
The lucky winner just recently learned how to play Racetrax from a friend. Previously, she played Pick 3, scratch-offs, and occasionally tried the jackpot games. But now Racetrax is her favorite – especially after she won $11,010 last week, and then followed it with smaller wins of $547 and $462 last weekend. Her friend says she is just a lucky person.
“She must have a horseshoe in her or something,” he said of the big winner.
The Baltimore woman started off making Quinella bets, where she tried to pick the horses that would finish in the top two. But she said she quickly switched over to Exacta Box bets, because they offer higher prizes. Last week, while enjoying an evening at the Windsor Inn, located at 7207 Windsor Mill Road in Windsor Mill, an Exacta Box bet and a special promotion delivered her big prize.
Her ticket carried a Doubler message, part of a Racetax promotion that is available through Sept. 7. The Doubler message is randomly printed on the tops of tickets, giving lucky players twice the winnings.
“I always play 11 and 12 with the bonus,” she said. “And, when I checked my ticket on the Maryland Lottery App, I saw that not only did the numbers hit with the Doubler, I also had a five times bonus.”
The winner, who has no children, plans to put her prize money in the bank and might spend some of it on a vacation. She said she always does for others and now it’s time to treat herself.
The Windsor Inn is a winner as well. For selling the winning ticket, the retailer will receive a bonus of $110.10 from the Maryland Lottery – 1 percent of the prize value.
