Webis Holdings commented that the deal was the first of its kind, as “no other wagering operator in the world is currently able to wager internationally into these betting pools.”
Connecting into the Hong Kong Jockey Club pools will commence with a select group of WatchandWager customers on Sunday, 16 March, said Webis. WatchandWager will access the Hong Kong betting pools via Typhoon Hub Ltd, the first tote company to integrate into the Hong Kong Jockey Club pools this season, the firm said.
The deal will cover the current season, with both companies given the option to renew for the 2014-15 season.
Ed Comins, president of WatchandWager.com, said: “We are honoured to partner with an organisation as prestigious as the HKJC. The integrity of their international product and the huge pool liquidity are sure to be attractive to our players, especially with our high volume operators.”
