The Kansas Lottery is betting players will cheer its new Racetrax® electronic virtual horse racing game. With 3D graphic animation so advanced the horses and races almost look real, Racetrax offers the thrill of horse racing and the payout and prizes of a Keno game. When the game came online July 29, Kansas became only the second lottery in the country to offer Racetrax to its players.
“Racetrax has come out of the gate very strong for us,” said Kansas Lottery Executive Director Terry Presta. “With only a minimal amount of advertising, Racetrax is already out performing our expectations and looking like a winner.”
Races begin every five minutes for Racetrax. There are 12 horses per race, with each race lasting up to one minute. There are fixed probabilities of winning on each Racetrax horse number. The winning horse numbers are randomly generated and displayed on TV monitors. A Bonus Wheel that spins before each race gives players a chance to multiply their winnings.
