Washington, PA --- The Meadows Racetrack & Casino announced that, beginning Monday (May 6), it will introduce a Pick-5 wager that will span the last five races of each card and offer an attractive 50-cent minimum.

In Pennsylvania, the minimum per-race bet is $2.

The Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission has approved the new wager.

If there are no winning Pick-5 tickets, 80 percent of the pool will be carried over to the next program’s Pick-5, providing the opportunity for rich payoffs.

The Pick-5 will replace the late Pick-4 currently offered.

In addition to the Pick-5, The Meadows’ wagering menu now includes:

  • Win/place/show, exacta and trifecta wagering on every race;
  • Early and Late Daily Doubles;
  • Up to four Pick-3 wagers per card;
  • Superfecta wagering on all races with at least eight betting interests, except those that kick off a Pick-4 or a Pick-5;
  • Pick-4 wagering covering races 4-7.
