OTB Schedule -
TVG was acquired in by Betfair. Betfair is another well-respected betting company based out of the UK and traded on the London Stock Exchange. Members can bet on horse races online, over the phone and with box-top sets in some states. TVG has a two-part welcome bonus for all new customers.
Essentially, TVG is willing to double your first deposit with bonus funds. They will want to know your name, address and all the normal information that a site asks for when you sign up.
They do ask for your social security number which you may find off-putting. Choose a track or individual list and the website will show you all the betting options for that event. The betting options shown on the website correspond to every available wager at that track.
Every open bet that you see online corresponds to an actual bet at the track. You can key your bets, box them and get as in-depth as you want. I alluded to this earlier, but here it is again.
All wagers placed online are combined with the bets placed in person at the track. This is a major advantage over offshore sites because it leads to bigger payouts for everyone, larger purses for the racing teams and more financial support for the local track. As you may know, many racetracks around the country have hit hard times in recent years. Anyways, you place your bet by selecting the track, narrowing it down to a specific race and then making your selections online.
The TVG wagering interface looks a lot like the betting slip you would use at any racetrack. The only difference is you use your mouse and keyboard to make your selections. Bets are deducted from your account instantly and winnings are paid out at the end of the race. There are no restrictions on how much or how often you can bet other than what each track imposes. What I found really fun was being able to watch the races in real time on my computer.
All you need is an account. TVG has a mobile-friendly website as well as an iPhone app available for free in the iTunes store. There, you can log in, place bets and monitor your races. If you have an iPhone, the mobile app is definitely the way to go. It comes with more features than the mobile website and can even serve live video on your phone.
You can fund your betting account with a number of deposit methods. Some of these are free while others come with small fees. The app is great! I like that you can review your bets and watch the race at the same time. I also like it when you launch the race video, you actually have to click the arrow to see the race and there is an option to disable the sound first. It gets stuck and I cannot proceed. I have to completely close the app and log back in, then I can go fund my account.
Please fix this issue. This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices. Some minor bug fixes. Changes and improvements made to the location accuracy of the App. Welcome Back, Horse Racing Fans!
