Isle of Man-based Premier Gateway International Ltd (PGI) is working with the Emirates Racing Authority as the host of the international horse race betting pools for this year’s Dubai racing season, which includes the Dubai World Cup Carnival – the richest race meeting in the world.
The Dubai World Cup Carnival is a series of 11 highly-competitive race meetings that annually attract the world’s best horses, jockeys and trainers to Meydan racecourse in the United Arab Emirates.
The Carnival culminates in the world’s richest race meeting, the Dubai World Cup, which is being held on March 28th 2015. This features nine high-class races highlighted by the US$10 million Dubai World Cup.
Neil Harmer, Chief Information Officer for PGI commented: “We are delighted to be working with the Emirates Racing Authority as the betting pools provider for the Dubai racing season and are particularly looking forward to working on the Dubai World Cup Racing Carnival.
“The betting pools for the Carnival attract interest from betting operators around the world who will all be connecting into PGI’s totalisator system located in Douglas. We’ve found the Isle of Man to be the ideal location for our business and have benefited from the highly professional approach that the government takes for the gaming industry and the technological infrastructure.”
CEO for e-Gaming Development with the Isle of Man Department of Economic Development Peter Greenhill said: “This announcement is not only great news for PGI but also for the Isle of Man as it reinforces our status as a high quality and respected jurisdiction for gaming and betting business.”
