iPhone Gamblers in for a Treat with New Hong Kong Jockey Club App
Hong Kong horseracing fans have a great new toy to play around with, as the Hong Kong Jockey Club has introduced a new mobile sports betting app to the Apple App Store. The HKJC is planning to launch their new Racing Touch horseracing and betting application throughout the region – one of only two where gambling is allowed in China – absolutely free of charge for all users with a Hong Kong Apple ID.
As announced in the latest mobile gambling news, the new app will allow users to bet on horseracing, while also providing relevant information about the ongoing races. As for the visual component, the app developer is planning to provide graphics that match the colors and markings of each runner. Users will be able to select and “Like” their favorite horse and save it to their index app.
Each registered player with a Hong King apple ID will be able to download the mobile sportsbook for free, directly from the App Store. The betting mobile app can also be used by players with a Hong King Jockey Club account.
According to the club’s executive director, Richard Cheung, the number of mobile gamblers has doubled in less than three years. “Many of us now seem to run our lives via digital devices. Our customers and racing fans are no different and with Racing Touch we are packaging racing information in a visually attractive way that appeals to digital-savvy adult consumers of all ages”, he added.
