Serious player wins serious money with Superfecta Box bet
A Racetrax regular from Mount Rainier takes the game pretty seriously. Speaking May 16 after claiming a prize of $43,036.70, he said he enjoys the challenge of the game because “there are chances to win big.”
His $43,036.70 prize is his biggest to date. This serious player has won previously, scoring prizes in the $5,000 to $6,000 range.
Indeed, while a Racetrax win of five digits is considered big, it is possible – although rare – to hit prizes in the six- and seven-digit range. The game is such that certain combinations, such as our player’s Superfecta Box bet, allow for a 10-cent bet on one race. There is a minimum wager amount of $1 to play, so to run the 10-cent option, multiple races are required.
The Prince George’s County player selected the 7, 10, 11 and 12 horses for his winning Superfecta Box bet.
Asked about his plans for his prize, the 46-year-old said, “I’ll have to think on it.” As for whether he’ll continue playing, the answer was a definite yes. “I have to get the big one!” he said.
Sharing in his good fortune is Brentwood Liberty at 3730 Rhode Island Avenue in Brentwood. The Lottery retailer picks up a bonus of $430.36, equal to 1% of the prize, for selling a Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more.
