Racing newspaper to offer online gambling

The Racing Post, Britain's largest racing newspaper is about to enter the online casino and poker sector of the industry with an offering developed in collaboration with 888.com. The horse racing newspaper will use its own brand to offer casino and poker deals to its massive readership, with 888 providing the software and customer support.

The agreement marks another success in 888.com's B2B strategy, which has seen the Gibraltar-based company sign up 14 new B2B customers during 2008 alone. The Racing Post agreement brings to four the number of B2B partnerships achieved by 888 thus far in 2009.

Gigi Levy, 888’s CEO, said: “Our latest deal with the Racing Post announced today, demonstrates that we enter 2009 with an innovative, fast-growing B2B operation which is now already one of the leading providers in the sector.”

Mark Renshaw, head of commercial online at the Racing Post, said: “This partnership is a crucial part of our overall online strategy, giving customers the best content available while growing revenue.”

The Racing Post Internet gambling offering should be launched in the next few months.

888.com had more good news for investors this week, reporting that its 2008 net profit rose 8.6 percent to $37.2 million, or 10.7 cents a share, from $34.2 million, or 9.9 cents a share, a year earlier.

Revenue for the year rose 20 percent to $256.9 million, with online casino business revenues up 14 percent to GBP135 million, while poker revenue grew more modestly by 4 percent to GBP77 million.

    "Hi Claralie, Thank you for your post. We take all suggestions from our players very seriously because it’s our number one priority that you are happy when playing at Casino Extreme. You will see in our T&C that only one free promotion is allowed between deposits. We think this is good for our players because if you didn’t have luck while playing after depositing, you will be able to win on a free tournament or another free promotion. For example, you won $100 on the LCB free tournament 9 days ago. Another important reason for this rule is that it prevents players who never deposit from collecting all the winnings from free promotions, and allows a greater chance to regular depositors to win. I hope this explains a bit better why this rule is so important for our regular depositing players. If you have any more suggestions or recommendations, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at alex@casinoextreme.com . Best regards,AlexCasino Extreme"
