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?

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
