Live Racing Exotic Wagers
20 Cent Superfectas: This season Running Aces has adjusted the minimum base bet on our Superfectas to 20 cents, as this will boost participation from additional off track outlets and create larger pools and bigger payouts
50 Cent Pentafecta: Running Aces proudly offers the "Hi-5" or Pentafecta wager again in 2017. This wager was extremely popular last season and produced some very large pools with an average 50 cent payoff over $900
20 Cent Jackpot Pick 5: Single unique winning ticket takes the entire pool! Multiple winners share 50% of the net pool, 50% is carried over in the "jackpot pool"
