 The Meadowlands' 20-Cent Survivor Pick 10 wager may no longer be new, but based on the bet’s pool totals and payoffs, it continues to shine.


On Saturday, Jan. 20, the wager’s total pool moved past the $20,000 mark for the third time since the bet’s inception on Nov. 4. A total of $21,653 was poured into the pot and one superb handicapper who ‘survived’ seven races – which included winners who scored at odds of 33-1 and 23-1 – was rewarded with a payout of $18,404.80.

Even when the total pool isn’t sky high, the payout can still be huge. The Friday, Jan. 12 pool saw $15,204 in wagers, and when the bet concluded when they hit the wire in Race 6, one shrewd player walked away with $12,920.56. It should be noted that some of the money earmarked for the Pick 10 may have instead been bet into the Pick 5 pool, which exploded to over $250,000 with the enticement of a $28,000 carryover that night.


The Big M’s signature wager, the Pick 4, averaged a little over $80,000 per night in action over last weekend, with Saturday’s winners – despite having a 2-1 shot and a 5-2 shot win the middle two legs of the sequence – walking away with $2,022.60 for a 50-cent bet.


DON’T LEAVE EARLY: The carryover for the Late 20-Cent Jackpot Super High Five – which requires a single-ticket winner to rake the pot – stands at $75,102.54. … Racing continues Friday night at the Big M at 6:35 p.m.
