A Cash Card is a blank and loadable account card that you can use to make bets on at self-service terminals at all NYRA Racetracks – Aqueduct, Belmont, and Saratoga.
Cash Cards are available from Guest Services locations and at select Mutuel Bays.
Cash Cards are available to anyone who makes a deposit on the card. The Cash Card itself does not cost you anything. Many people start with a $20 or $50 Cash Card and you can always load more money on to it later.
Just like when you make a bet with a paper ticket, each bet made on a Cash Card has a unique serial number. Once you make a bet, your account balance goes down by the amount of the bet. Once a race has gone official, if your bet is a winner, the bet gets automatically cashed in the tote system and your account balance goes up by the amount of the winnings.
Self-service terminals are located throughout Aqueduct, Belmont, and Saratoga – one all floors and in all areas.
One great perk of Cash Cards is that you can use any self-service terminal to review your activity. You can see previous bets – both those on races that have already happened and those yet to come – and see the payouts too. You will never lose a winning ticket or a voucher ever again.
Each Cash Card has an account number and pin. Pins are preloaded to each Cash Card account and are printed on the Cash Card. The preloaded pin is obstructed by a scratch off and we recommend that on your first use you change the pin to something you will remember and is not the pin on the back of the card. If you lost your card, this will preclude others from taking your balance.
To protect you, your pin is needed each time you engage a terminal and when you make additional deposits and withdrawals.
You can add money to your Cash card at a self-service terminal by inserting cash, a winning ticket, or a betting voucher. You can also add money with a mutuel clerk.
You can take money off your Cash card at a self-service terminal by hitting the withdrawal button. You can withdraw any amount as decided by you up to your account balance. You can also make a withdrawal with a mutuel clerk.
No. However, after three years without activity (a deposit, withdrawal, or wager) we are forced to treat the account as abandoned property and provide any remaining balance to New York State.
Please be advised that all regular wagering rules apply to Cash Cards. You must be at least 18 years of age or older to use Cash Cards and play the races.
