Operated by one of the most trusted names in U.S. horse racing, the TVG betting platform is one of the nation’s very best, with wagering on racetracks all over the world right at your fingertips and plenty of enticing promotions for new sign-ups.
TVG, or the Television Games Network, initially began as a channel dedicated to providing wall-to-wall televised coverage of horse racing, before the company branched out into the world of online wagering. The resulting product is everything one would expect from an industry leader. The site is clear and concise, with its myriad available tracks listed plainly on the left side of the page, and is perfect for the novice bettor as it offers free picks from their on-air handicappers, as well as a comprehensive betting guide.
Their current featured promotional offer for new sign-ups is a whopping $300 risk free bet. To take advantage of the promotion all you have to do is sign-up using the promotional code ‘RISKFREE1’, make a deposit, and place a win bet on a single horse. If your horse loses, you’ll be refunded up to $300. They also have a generous “refer a friend” program, which gives users a free $25 bet for each successful referral, as well as several other betting offers at various tracks.
To sign up, you’ll be expected to input all the standard information a site asks for, such as your name, address, e-mail, etc., but you’ll also need to provide your social security number for IRS purposes and to ensure you’re in a participating state.
Once you’ve created an account, you’ll find a plethora of options available with which you can fund it, so getting off and running shouldn’t be an issue, and withdrawals are issued either via paper check or electronically, making it just as easy to receive money when you’ve won. The TVG website is mobile-friendly and there’s a free app available for iPhone users that makes its mobile use even more streamlined.
The verdict: TVG.com is everything you could possibly want from a wagering platform. It’s easy to use, has a sleek and snappy interface, and comes with an abundance of promotional offers aimed at attracting and retaining customers. Perfect for the neophyte or the seasoned pro, TVG sets the bar high for other ADWs, which is no surprise given the quality horse racing coverage the company has been providing for more than two decades.
