|Real Entertainment Ltd launches RaceBook.com, a high-tech Internet based pari-mutuel wagering system accepting bets on greyhound racing, harness racing, horse racing and jai alai events.|
Globally, pari-mutuel wagering is a US$100 billion industry, 84% of that coming from North America alone.
RaceBook.comís pari-mutuel system offers the unique opportunity of bettors being able to place their bets into the racetrack betting pool from their homes or wherever in the world they are at that time. Previously, bettors would have to visit the racetrack of an Off Track Betting office if they wanted to place wagers into a racetrack betting pool.
At present, RaceBook.com accepts bets on events at Monticello Raceway, Northfield Park, Scarborough Downs, Phoenix Greyhound Park, Tuscan Greyhound Park, Dania Jai Alai and Miami Jai Alai. In addition to this, more tracks and courts will soon be offered.
RaceBook.com also features live web casts of racing events, to enable bettors to watch a race as they bet on it. Other betting options are also available and these include bingo, lottery and casino.
Real Entertainment also operates other leading Internet based gambling businesses including Win4Real.com Casino and SPORTSBETTING.COM and is recognized as a leader in Internet casino and sports wagering.
