Churchill Downs Inc. has announced it has consolidated its four individual advance deposit wagering platforms into one common site, www.TwinSpires.com
WinTicket.com has added live video-streaming to its mobile Web site, which means users can watch races on mobile devices.
McKay Smith, formerly director of product development for the National Thoroughbred Racing Association and Breeders' Cup, has joined AmericaTab as senior director of marketing.
AmericaTab has launched a new wireless wagering service that will be offered free to customers with any affiliate account. AmericaTab has launched the product with its "On the Go" label.
Online wagering company AmericaTab announced Friday its latest affiliate with the launch of tBet.com, owned and operated by Times: standard inc.
AmericaTab reported a record month for total handle in May and broke a single-day handle record on Kentucky Derby Day (May 3).
AmericaTab and its affiliates set a one-month handle record in March with $8.3 million in wagers, the company reported April 10. It was the second consecutive month of record-breaking handle.
Youbet.com, the online horse racing and wagering service, is being sued by a Kentucky racing information company for allegedly failing to pay an estimated $80,000 in royalties.
Last year, the day before the Breeders' Cup, officials from the organization and the TV Games Network traveled to Ohio to strike a deal allowing Winticket.com, Beulah Park's account-wagering subsidiary, to accept wagers on the eight races. Eleven months later, with the Oct. 27 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships asoon approaching, no agreement is in place to cover the same situation.
The Ohio-based online wagering service has been approved to operate in Oregon, where other entities such as NTRA Services and US Off-Track have set up betting hubs that return a portion of revenue to the horse and Greyhound industries.
Beulah Park's online wagering service called Winticket.com got full approval by the Ohio State Racing Commission before the service was developed, said an Ohio judge. Therefore, the judge said, state officials cannot arbitrarily decide they want the service stopped until online wagering is further evaluated.
