|AmericaTab, one of America’s largest providers of horseracing betting services, has announced a series of upgrades, including scratches, will-pays, new scheduling features and free race replays. The Instant Race Replays will be a free service for an unspecified period of time and currently go back to December 1, 2003, AmericaTab says more archives will be added later.|
“We took a long look at how we could provide the technical means to provide this service, yet protect the horsemen and the copyrights of the tracks themselves,” said Charles J. Ruma, president of AmericaTab. “At this time most tracks have granted permission to replay the races because we have implemented safeguards that protect their rights.”
Replays will be offered, where available, from three angles: Pan Camera, Head-on, or Photo Finish and the company says it is currently they are working on making the replays compatible with most browsers. It is ready for release to users of Internet Explorer 5 and above, and Netscape 7.1 or higher.
The company is currently pursuing a strategy of vigorously attracting new customers with bonus day promotions, attractive sign-up offers, contests, and friend referral programs.
