While many Americans might argue their politicians gamble with their tax money every day, there is not a single opportunity when it comes to gambling for entertainment purposes in the District of Columbia, home to the federal government. There are no off track betting or simulcast wagering sites for horse racing, and casinos are obviously nowhere to be found.
District of Columbia Off Track Betting Sites
Since there are no OTBs, DC residents who want to bet the horses either have to travel to where there is racing, or take advantage of the convenience of betting from home with an online racebook account. Online betting platforms offering wagering on dozens of tracks at track odds in North America and overseas.
All of the best online racebooks offer an easy-to-navigate betting platform, a wide array of bet types, and special wagering like future bets or head-to-heads for major events like the Triple Crown.
All the best online racebooks also offer rewards and promotions including the ever-popular cash back rebates whether your horse wins or loses.
A good example is BetOnline, where they offer daily 7% cash back on horse wagering, for both straight bets like Win, Place or Show, or exotic bets on exactas, Daily Doubles, Pick 3s and others.
There is no daily minimum needed to bet, and no maximum on how much a handicapper can receive back in terms of a daily rebate. The only exception is on bets placed on New York Racing Association tracks, where the rebate is 4%.
