CARRY-OVER WAGER WILL BE AVAILABLE THREE TIMES EACH NIGHT
OPELOUSAS, LA- Evangeline Downs will be offering the 50-cent minimum Super Hi 5 wager three times each racing night, starting on Wednesday, April 20. This will be an expansion of the number of opportunities to play this wager for the betting public, as the Super Hi 5 is currently offered only once per racing night.
The Super Hi 5 will be available at Evangeline Downs in the fifth race, the seventh race and the final race on each racing program. The wager is available only in the fifth race at the present time. The Super Hi 5 is a 50-cent minimum wager that requires the bettor to correctly select the first five finishers in exact order in the race where the wager is offered. If no bettor is able to correctly select the first five finishers in exact order in a Super Hi 5 race, then 100% of the pool will carry-over into the next race where the wager is offered. The pool will also carry-over from one racing day to the next, if necessary. It is the only carryover wager currently offered without a consolation payout, in accordance with Louisiana state law.
Chris Warren, Evangeline Downs Director of Racing, feels that this change will make the Evangeline Downs racing signal more attractive to the betting public, “Bettors are always searching for opportunities to hit it big at the races and by expanding the number of times Evangeline Downs is offering the Super Hi 5, we hope to entice our fans who are looking for their next big score.”
Evangeline Downs has live Thoroughbred racing each Wednesday through Saturday night through
Saturday, August 27. Post time for each live racing night is 5:50 pm Central time.
