Interesting. Either the rules are different in other venues or I was given bad info last year.

I specifically asked a fellow at one of the NYRA booths at the Spa about whether or not a higher-than-base minimum $.20 ticket like this $8 winning ticket (I used $1 as an example in my question) would count as a single winning ticket or cause the jackpot to carry.

He said he wasn't sure and would have to talk to his supervisor, then got back to me that evening with the following text message:

“Hi Rocky, this is Bill from NYRA. Talked to my supervisor about the $1 Empire 6. He said you would lose the “single winner” chance to take the whole pool if you did this.”
