Sunday’s carryover in the Rainbow 6 will be $1,239,713.38. The Rainbow 6 has gone unsolved for 22 consecutive racing programs since it was last hit for $324,179.78 on Feb. 23.
Prosperity Mo kicked off the first race in Saturday’s Rainbow 6 and returned $206.40, making multiple winning tickets Saturday worth $40,227.72.
The popular multi-race wager’s jackpot is paid out only when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool. However, on days when a mandatory payout is scheduled the entire pool is shared by those holding tickets with the most winners.
A mandatory payout has been scheduled for Sunday April 2, closing day of the 2016-17 Championship Meet.
There will also be a Super Hi 5 carryover Sunday of $3,562.64.
