Eight contestants won cash prizes Sunday in the Summer 6-Pick Handicapping contest that was held at the Buckets OTB Bar & Grill in Chesapeake. Contestants were asked to select a horse in the 5th thru 10th races at Saratoga . Those that accumulated the highest mythical bankrolls and those that selected the most winners were both rewarded.
$58.80 – KJ OIiver, Dean Cerri (each won $87.50)
$57.30 – James Elder (won $50.00)
$37.60 – Darren Wallace (won $25.00)
Most winners: 4 players had 3 winners each in the 6 contest races, so each won $25.00: Dean Cerri, Carl Phillips, Paul Bastianos, James Elder
Nobody successfully hit 6 out of 6 winners, so the escalating carryover jackpot continues to climb as the next round heads to the Breakers Sports Grill OTB in Richmond on Sunday August 26th. There will be a $1200 carryover pool at Breakers for anyone that selects all six as the contest begins its final phase.
The final round is scheduled for Sunday September 16th at the Buckets OTB in Chesapeake. That will be a mandatory payout day of the carryover pool to whoever selects the MOST winners of the 6 races at Belmont that day. The carryover could be at $1650! Combining that with the fact it will be Week #2 of the NFL season — and Buckets has the NFL ticket — this will be the biggest promotion the Virginia Equine Alliance has ever done at an OTB. Plan to be there to fill out your free entry before 3 PM.
