      Section: 5:5-63.1: Alternative systems of wagering; pools

           1. a. The New Jersey Racing Commission may, by regulation promulgated pursuant to the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.), authorize a permitholder to conduct a system of wagering in which the bettor selects the winning horse in each of four or more consecutive races designated by the permitholder up to the maximum number of races allowed by the commission. The races in which this system of wagering is to be conducted and the method of distributing the parimutuel pool chosen by the permitholder pursuant to paragraph (1) of subsection c. of this section shall be approved by the commission and shall be clearly specified in the program for the races conducted at a horse race meeting.

b. The parimutuel pool of bettors participating in this form of wagering shall be separate from all other wagering pools on races conducted by the permitholder. Tickets for this form of wagering shall be sold in denominations of not less than $1 and only from machines capable of issuing tickets for the authorized number of races.

c. The pool for distribution to winners of races using this form of wagering shall be distributed as follows:

(1) 100\% of the pool shall be paid to the winner or winners of those races each day or, alternatively, 75\% of the pool shall be paid to the winner or winners of those races each day and 25\% of the pool shall be paid to the bettor or bettors who selected the next largest number of winning horses in those races;

(2) In the event that there is no winner, 25\% of the pool shall be paid to the bettor or bettors who selected the largest number of winning horses in those races and 75\% of the pool shall be carried over and added to the pool on the next day that this system of wagering is conducted;

(3) If on the last day on which this system of wagering is conducted at a horse race meeting during a calendar year, no bettor selects the winning horses in those races, the total amount of the pool which exists on that day in connection with those races shall be paid to the bettor or bettors who selected the largest number of winning horses in those races. No part of the pool shall be carried over to the next year's race meeting.

L.1993,c.24,s.1.
