Brother, can you spare a dime? At Maywood Park racetrack, you'd better believe it. Just two weeks ago, a patron plunked down ten cents on Maywood Park's new Super High Five wager. Twenty minutes later, that same patron collected $10,689 for his ten-cent investment.
The Super High Five wager asks fans to pick the first five finishers in order, and for just a dime. On Thursday and Friday nights, Maywood Park is the only racetrack in North America that offers a Super High Five for ten cents. The Super High Five is offered at Maywood Park on Race Ten only.
The average Super High Five payoff at Maywood Park to date has been over $2,000-for just a dime investment. That means patrons can play the Super High Five countless times for a very little amount of money, to win a great deal of money.
