All you need to do to get track prices in your Capital OTB phone account is maintain a $300 balance or if you bet enough they easily wave the minimum balance requirement. Plenty of other outlets that require no minimum balance at all for full prices.
I stop by to visit my uncle and his cronies a lot at one of the local parlors, they all have been betting with the surcharge since the 70's. They will argue that the surcharge only matters if you win! Yeah I'm not kidding and I thank the lord daily that these are the people I bet against.
You can bet out of your account on the machines in the parlors too and get track prices.
Totally insane to give up that 5 or 6 % on top of already crippling takeouts.
