Oaklawn adds phone wagering at the track

Posted By on Mon, Dec 5, 2011 at 12:54 PM

It's not the on-line wagering I mentioned a few days ago, but Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs is ready to roll out smart phone wagering.

News release says that when the racing season begins Jan. 13, people with smart phones will be able to do wagering on their phones. They'll have to use designated windows to put money in wagering accounts and collect bets. I've a followup question in, but the release seems to indicate that wagering may only be done on the premises through the Oaklawn wireless Internet service.

Once the ability to do on-line wagering is in place ...... who knows what the future might hold?
