Las Vegas, NV--“PonyUpBet is out of the gate and offering the highest legal horse and greyhound wagering rebate program in America!” With this claim, and the announcement of
some rebates over 11%, owner Eric Nelson launched a new company where players get rebates from select tracks no matter what. “Win or lose, every player wins,” said the obviously excited Nelson.

“At participating tracks, players world-wide can place bets by phone or computer. PonyUpBet retains the smallest amount of a players’ bet of any company in existence. This is a really big deal,” he said.
“Nobody else is offering rebates like they are,” industry sources state.
“We consider profit-sharing, otherwise known as “rebates”, to be a win-win situation for everyone,” observed PonyUpBet Corporate Operations Director, Joan Ramos.

“We’re getting such positive feedback from our customers,” added Corporate Controller, Lorie Anderson. PonyUpBet offers two types of online wagering. One type, the “Easy Bet” application, which is also available from enabled cell phones, allows a player to bet in a small pop-up window without loading heavy graphics.

Nelson boasts, “Our second type, ‘Custom Betting’ is a new and
powerful wagering application. Our players can build their bets by dragging and dropping runners into their desired wager. This allows them to access racing results, current odds, pool totals and account bet history. We’re taking it to a new level!”

For participating thoroughbred, harness and greyhound tracks the process involves an interesting track-versus-track format where all the savings are passed on to the player. Freehold Raceway, Gulf Greyhound and Mountaineer Park are a few of the many host
tracks offered by PonyUpBet. “We hope to add international tracks in the near future,” said Anderson.

After opening a $50.00 minimum account and obtaining a pin number, players call-in or email bets out of their account. There are no per wager fees and no charges to open an account. Some state restrictions might apply. “It’s easy as it can be,” says Nelson, directing players to the www.PonyUpBet.com website or to the toll free number 1-877-238-0701.

Nelson, who owns Wyoming Downs Racetrack in Evanston, Wyoming, where PonyUpBet is licensed, is also currently involved in the development of the Silver Slipper Casino project on the Mississippi coast.
