Several US states now let you bet on horse races online or via mobile app. Pari-mutuel betting is also permitted in states that carry the right legislation. You can bet on the US horse racing events such as Belmont Stakes and Kentucky Derby. Odds are also available on UK events such as Royal Ascot or Cheltenham Festival.
All regulated online racebooks in the US offer bonuses for the new and existing customers, rewards-programs, live streaming and in-play wagering options as well as horse racing predictions and updates on the schedule and future events.
You will need geolocation enabled on your smartphone to prove that you are within state lines when you place bets.
