HKJC to fly betting shop manager of the year to HK
The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) has said it will fly out the winner of the Racing Post/SIS Betting Shop Manager of the Year to Hong Kong for a five-day luxury holiday and tour of its facilities.
The final field has been whittled down to just 24 and the winner will be announced at the Betting Shop Manager of the Year awards lunch at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 11th November.
“Betting on international horse racing continues to grow in the UK and this exciting prize will allow this year’s Racing Post/SIS Betting Shop Manager to experience racing from two of the sport’s most iconic venues,” said SIS CEO Richard Ames, SIS CEO. “We’ve been really impressed with the calibre of entries for this year’s competition. The very best of luck to all our finalists as they compete against each other to claim this luxury VIP trip.”
The HKJC began commingling with U.K. operators in 2016, starting with the U.K. Tote. The club has been gradually adding commingling partners, which has provided a major boost to its annual revenue.
Singapore police have busted at least two illegal gambling operations in the past week, while across Asia authorities have moved to stamp out illicit activities, from raids on premier league matches in India, to illegal number forecasting in Malaysia.
