HorsePlayer Interactive (HPI), Canada’s first and only legal online account wagering service, is now available in Manitoba thanks to an agreement announced today between the Manitoba Jockey Club and HPI’s parent company, Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG).
HPI is now available in every province in Canada.
Not only are Manitoba race fans now able to wager on more than 150 racetracks around the world, they also are able to watch those races on their computers, call up race replays, download race programs and participate in exclusive HPI contests at HorsePlayerInteractive.com.
“This is a very significant milestone for Woodbine Entertainment Group,” said Sean Pinsonneault, WEG’s Chief Operating Officer. “It now means that HPI is available coast-to-coast across Canada. Much of the credit for the agreement though goes to the Manitoba Jockey Club which is committed to bringing the best possible account wagering product to the province’s horse racing customers.”
The Manitoba Jockey Club, a not-for-profit entity, will conduct a live thoroughbred racing meet at Assiniboia Downs in Winnipeg from May until September.
“What makes this service particularly exciting,” said Sharon Gulyas, vice-president of finance and gaming at Assiniboia Downs, “is that people everywhere in Manitoba now can enjoy playing the races. It’s as close as their computers.”
Assiniboia Downs offers simulcast wagering from dozens of race tracks from about 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. every day.
