2) Unique winning ticket, as used in subsection (d)(1), shall be defined as having occurred when there is one and only one winning ticket whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first five betting interests, to be verified by the unique serial number assigned by the tote company that issued the winning ticket. In the event that there is more than one winning ticket whose combination finished in correct sequence as the first five betting interests, the unique winning ticket shall be deemed to not have occurred.

3) On the last Pentafecta race on the final day of the meeting, the net pool shall be redistributed using the method described in subsection (a).

The balance of any selection beyond the number of betting interests completing the contest shall be ignored. If the pools are being distributed under either subsection (b) or subsection (c), any previous Pentafecta contest's carryover will not be included in the payoff and will be retained for the next contest's carryover, and this contest's net Pentafecta pool will be distributed using the method described in subsection (a).
