The Kentucky Downs Racetrack sports betting establishment has its own sportsbook system through which it provides visitors of legal age with betting services. Thanks to that fact, you can place bets on any of the live horse races that are taking place at the establishment.
After all, the Kentucky Derby is the most popular horse race in the world. While legal online sports betting has expanded in recent months, it's critical to note that betting on horse racing is legal in far more states. That means bettors can legally wager on the Kentucky Derby than any other sports event.
These states are Washington D. C., Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Washington, Maine, Connecticut, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri, California, South Carolina, Louisiana, Arizona, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, Hawaii, Texas, Georgia, Nebraska, Wyoming, Alaska, Alabama, ...
The minimum amount you can wager varies from bet to bet, generally ranging from 10 cents to $2. But you can also bet more than the minimum amount, with larger payoffs as the prize. A $2 win bet on a 5-1 winner will return $12 for a profit of $10, but a $20 wager on the same horse will return $120 for a profit of $100.
Perhaps you are not satisfied with the small stuff, and really want to make a big score on America's biggest horse race. The superfecta may be for you. All you have to do is pick the top four finishers in the correct order, and you are a winner. The minimum bet for a superfecta for the Kentucky Derby is $1.
