Red Shores will offer some new betting features that will begin with the start of the meet at both Charlottetown Driving Park and Summerside Raceway.

Firstly, Red Shores will now be offering a Jackpot Hi-5 wager during the 2021 racing season. The pool will have an industry low takeout of 15 per cent and a single-winner format.

The Jackpot Hi-5 requires the selection of the first five finishers of the race in correct order. If there is a single winner, they will receive not only the payout from the day’s current pool but also the full jackpot that has built up from previous events.

“We tested the Pentafecta at the end of our last meet and there was some interest there,” said Lee Drake, manager of racing and broadcast. “The single-winner jackpot format is something that will provide the potential for some big prices for the pool.”

The Jackpot Hi-5 pool will be offered at both Charlottetown and Summerside. The carryover will follow the two tracks to maximize the opportunities to build the carryover and create some big payouts.

In addition to this, Red Shores has also reduced the minimum bet amounts required for several pools. The superfecta, Pick-4 and Jackpot Hi-5 now all have a 20-cent minimum bet option.

The Jackpot Hi-5 and the lower bet minimums will begin with the opening day program at Red Shores Charlottetown on Saturday (May 8) with a first post of 6 p.m. Atlantic. Red Shores Summerside kicks off their season on Monday, May 24, at 1 p.m. Atlantic.
