In December WatchandWager received a licence approval from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.
This means the company commenced taking live registrations, deposits and wagering from residents of the State from 14th December. The licence comes conditional on a $100,000 (£81,000) Bond being lodged with the Commission and this is expected to be in place early in this month.
Kentucky is known as the ‘cradle of horse racing’ in the United States with its hundreds of horse farms, breeding farms and training centres. WatchandWager’s presence in Kentucky began relatively recently in 2013 and has expanded since then.
WatchandWager President Ed Comins commented: “We are pleased to add Kentucky to the ever-expanding list of states where WatchandWager can accept wagers. Our company’s experience in Kentucky has been a very positive one, and being able to accept wagers from residents of the State only cements this relationship.”
To mark the approval of its Kentucky license, for a limited time WatchandWager is giving a special matching-deposit bonus to Kentucky residents who successfully register and fund a new wagering account.
