V75 Pool At $14.3 Million

Published: December 30, 2008 02:50 pm EST

With no payouts last week because they did not meet the government’s minimum threshold, the Swedish V75 pool has increased to $14.3 million US, with an estimated jackpot of $2.75 million this coming Saturday.

Advance wagering on the V75, which accounts for 40% of total pari-mutuel wagering in Sweden and has grown 10% a year for the last five years, begins each Wednesday for races conducted on Saturdays. To win the jackpot, bettors must pick the winners of seven consecutive races, with consolation payouts for those who select six or five.

The Swedish V75 can be bet in the United States at the Meadowlands, Monmouth Park, Freehold and www.4NJBets.com in New Jersey, and will be available at Hawthorne, Balmoral and Maywood in Illinois starting in January.
