AmericaTab nails pick six again


AmericaTab, a collection of online wagering sites, put together its second pick six play on behalf of its players on Sunday at Hollywood park, hitting with one ticket and 28 consolations on a mammoth $61,560 play.

The tickets returned a total of $132,024.80, on a payoff of $97,708 for the perfect ticket and $1,225.60 on each consolation ticket. After taxes, each of the 826 AmericaTab players who participated in the bet (at a $10 minimum) received a return of $1.74 for each $1 bet, or the approximate equivalent of betting on a horse who won at 4-5.

AmericaTab first offered its players the opportunity to bet on a shared pick six ticket on the Breeders' Cup card at Lone Star Park on Oct. 30. That ticket, which cost $44,280, also won, with a total payoff of $280,748.

Selections for the ticket were made by three handicappers retained by AmericaTab.
