December 31 – March 15
It’s baaaaaaack! Let-8-Ride returns to Delta Downs starting New Year’s Eve, December 31. A new game starts every Wednesday night and runs through Saturday night or until there are no Players left standing.
Playing Let-8-Ride is easy and fun:
On Wednesday: Start the contest by placing an $8 Win bet on the 8th race at Delta Downs. On Wednesday only, Players may place as many $8 Win bets as they like to try to advance in the contest. Players who place a winning contest bet in Wednesday’s round qualify to advance to Thursday.
On Thursday: If Wednesday’s bet is a winner, let it ride (reinvest your winnings from Wednesday’s 8th race, rounded down to the nearest dollar) to Win on a single horse in Thursday’s 8th race. No multi-horse wagers are permitted. The official contest bet amount will be listed on this page prior to Thursday’s card. Players may have to use the “Other” feature when selecting their bet amount in order to place a Win wager for the exact amount required. Only a player’s FIRST wager for the specified bet amount will count in the contest.

Friday’s Official Contest Bet Amount will be posted on this page. Players may place only one (1) contest bet on a single horse or entry in Friday’s round. Players who place a winning contest bet in Friday’s round qualify to advance to Saturday. Only a player’s FIRST wager for the specified bet amount will count in the contest. In the event there are no losers in Friday’s round and all players cash winning bets, the $500 insurance prize will be carried over to Saturday’s round, making the total Jackpot $1,500.
On Saturday: If Friday’s bet is a winner, you are eligible to collect a share of Saturday’s $1,000 Jackpot Prize when you place an official contest wager on Saturday’s 8th race at Delta Downs – win or lose. Saturday’s Official Contest Bet Amount will be posted below. Players may place only one (1) contest bet on a single horse or entry in Saturday’s final round. Only a player’s FIRST wager for the specified bet amount will count in the contest.
Important notice: In Thursday’s round and beyond, you may have to select “Other” when choosing your bet amount in TwinSpires Classic, TwinSpires Express or TwinSpiresTV. If you encounter any difficulty using the “Other” feature on TwinSpires Classic, we suggest using TwinSpires Express. Also, players using TwinSpires Mobile may wager in increments that, when added together, equal the required bet amount, provided all such wagers use the same horse.
