Oaklawn launches website so gamers can watch & wager from anywhere

Posted: Updated:

Oaklawn is launching a website that lets Arkansans bet on races even when they're away from the track.

OaklawnAnywhere.com lets you watch and wager though smartphones, tablets or computers. Oaklawn officials say users will be able to have access to races from many other US and international tracks.

"Arkansas racing fans are among the most enthusiastic in the business and we know that many of them already have online wagering accounts with other companies," said Director of Wagering and Gaming Bobby Geiger. "The benefit of opening an account with OaklawnAnywhere is that the money stays in Arkansas, it benefits Arkansans through taxes collected by the state and the horsemen will benefit from increased purses."

Fans can sign up for an account for free. Members must be 18-years-old and an Arkansas resident.
