Horse Racing
BetAmerica

BetAmerica is one of the few legal ways for residents in America to place online bets on horse and greyhound events not only around the country but at tracks all around the world. Despite the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in 2006 effectively putting a stop to online gambling across the country, horse and greyhound racing have received special exemptions that vary from state to state.

So unlike the sportsbook option that is only available currently for residents of New Jersey betting on horses is legal, dependent of course on your location. Check our map to see what is legal in around the country.

Not only does BetAmerica offer betting on thoroughbred horse racing, but you can also place wagers on harness racing and greyhound tracks.

BetAmerica offers every user 10 hours of free video to watch per month, and this can be supplemented by 1 hour for every $10 that is wagered in the handicapping contest.

You will find all of the standard types of horse racing bets available on the site. You can choose to place standard win/place/show bets as well as exotics and other combinations. Payouts will be determined in the standard parimutuel fashion just like as would expect to find if you had attended a track in person.

BetAmerica Bonus

No promo codes are needed for the main offer from BetAmerica, they will just match your 100% of your initial deposit provided that you are a genuine new customer that is of legal age and in one of the states where betting online is legally allowed. Your bonus funds will then be displayed in your Pending Bonus balance. Your Bonus Balance will then be moved over into your Cash Balance at a rate of 10% of the value of each racing bet placed. You will have 30 days to use the pending bonus before it expires.

BetAmerica Rewards Program

Every customer is eligible to join the Wager Rewards program at BetAmerica. You can earn rewards on every track (certain state local fees mean that the number of points earned vary) but you will earn one point for each dollar wagered on the majority of tracks.  You can also earn a 20% bonus on all exotics and 10% bonus on all multi-wagers at all tracks. Wager Rewards can then be used on future bets or spent in the shop.

If you are a high roller, then you are able to join the VIP program, where not only can you earn betting rewards but you can be invited to hospitality events and other exclusive promotions.
