On line is a best way to bet no disturbance of any kind of which we will our mind in tote or race course so it is a different experience I think hope it will come soon

Dear All,

In the given situation it appears that On line betting will come into picture for some time. It's fine with techno savvy punters to opearte & bet. But I thought for quiet long since the Covid-19 days as a common punter & strongly feel that it would be wise, easy & practical to bet on races at any Indian racing when we are back at racecourse & the whole scenario is as before 12 Th March 2020. It also includes the COLE/ BOL/ VEL book in hand a day or two early in hand(hard copy).

Rest only few punters can bet on races in very limited manner of WIN/ Place bets. I'm afraid of the putting my bank account also at stake with hugely rising Cyber crimes.The other pools also will be difficult to bet at.

More than 6 months have passed with NO RACING. We have braved the situation & let us be patient for the normalcy to be established thro' a vaccine to enjoy racing in old style ONLY..

Hello krish,

You may have international racing experience iam of view that you are based in canada or usa.

In 2008 i was in London as visitor stayed there for two months at that time i opened 

a Ladbrokes account with cash of  £50 deposited at a betting shop giving required 

Details in prescribed form while processing asked to give a temp password in few minutes they gave me Ladbrokes card with a/c number.activation time 24 hrs or 48 hrs i don't remember exactly now,afterActivation it is simple go to Lad broke web sign in with your account and click on horse races you can see today races of various centres can have access of race card with odds you can go for win,e/w, place and placepot some of the other bet types which you can make in betting shop window not avaliable, the betting ammount  £1 or £2 or 50cents is minimal for certain types of bets, my bets mostly £1 to £2 for win

For placepot it is between£5 to£10 (it is just like jack pot but 6races placepot)  from

Ladbroke site you can read all the details of horse form

Before placing bet.

After coming back also continued betting with that little intial ammount of £50 i was able to place 480 bets in 6 months period, as soon as result of the bet declared your balance added or deducted accordingly, the withdrawal you can tranfer to Your bank account  or any other Accounts you wished.

Its a good move from the truf clubs to go online. As per my experience in betting online on international races it's really very cool! But when it come to India it'l could be totally a different stories! Many punters don't prefer online transaction, may due to lack of knowledge or security concerns! 

But I personally feel the illegal book maker will benefit at large!

So It's good the truf clubs issue online bookmakers license for betting companys with royalty sharing agreement. It would also generate good revenue's. 

It's good for the sport in long term!

Online bets in racing is new experience to us... but if one has international online betting experience, it will be better if they share there experiences

Forget online betting it will be a flop.There has to be a way out. Entrance to race course should be 300 minimum and 500 maximum and definitely should follow physical distancing, mask should be mandatory. Entrance should be first come basis say 30% to 40% of the regular attendance.

If they conduct online betting, they need only a handful of staff. What will they do with tote operators? They will go on strike demanding work.

Dear, to my knowledge they will start only when bookies are open. Do any one think they will start without bookie.????????
