HKJC given go ahead for co-mingling of pools


The Hong Kong Government announced that it will propose amendments to the Betting Ordinance to allow the operation of two-way commingling on horse race betting in order to counter the threats posed by illegal bookmakers and junket operators. A spokesperson for HKJC said that this move will allow the Club to provide unified and more stable odds between different racing jurisdictions, eliminating the opportunity for illegal bookmakers to exploit the current differences and offer more attractive odds.
