• This is a game of chance. Guests will write their name on all non-winning wagering tickets from the previous Tioga Downs live race and drop into the official entry barrel.

• Non-winning tickets for wagers totaling less than $1.00 will not be eligible as entries. For example, a single $0.10 superfecta ticket or single $0.50 trifecta ticket will not be eligible as an entry. A ticket must have a total wagering value of $1.00 or more.

• Following the next race, a member of the Tioga Downs promotions department will randomly select one ticket from the entry barrel. The winner will receive a free $10 WPS wager ($30 total) to be used entirely on a horse in the next race. Guests may only win the $10 WPS wager once each night. A member of the promotions staff will escort the winner to a pari-mutuel teller to place the wager

• For example, the first winner will be selected following Race 2 from the non-winning wagering tickets from Race 1.

• The drawing will be repeated following Races 2-6 for a total of $150.00 in wagers.

• Following each race, the entry barrel will be emptied to ensure that only tickets from the eligible race are entered. Tickets from races other than the previous race or from tracks other than Tioga Downs will be ineligible for the drawings.
