I don't think that's correct. The will pays were posting following the scratch of the 12 and the amount bet on any particular entry would not have affected the pick 5 pool.
Fairmont - Your example is exactly my case. All the will pays were wrong, pk3, pk4. and pk5. Most glaring was the pk5 which was double the real return. I was live to six horses, each showed a small return. In reality it should have shown me a loss on all 6 entries. I would have evaluated some type of hedge bet if I had the correct information. Most likely losing additional money but that's not the point.
This game is drowning and the ADW just saying you're screwed it was the track's fault really pisses me off.
