The Fonner Park Jackpot 5 Wager, powered by Dinsdale Automotive Back again is the Fonner Park Jackpot 5 Wager. It is a 50-cent minimum wager that requires a single bettor to pick the winner on each of the last five races on Fonner Park's race card. If you are the ONLY one to correctly select the five winners, you take down the entire Jackpot pool! If there is more than one unique ticket, half of the pool for that day is split, while the other half is added to the jackpot and carries over to the next race day. Bet a little to win Big!
