Horseplayer Interactive, or HPIBet for short, is an experienced site specializing solely in horse racing. It is also one of the oldest horse betting platforms in Canada. The betting markets span over 450 racetracks as well as numerous land-based venues around the world. Historically speaking, the origins of HPIBet date back to the 1800’s. Woodbine Entertainment Group, the parent company chaired by William Hendrie, was inducted into Canadian Horse Racing in 1976. From 1997 to the present day, the platform has been able to offer betting over the phone, thanks to its powerful technology. In addition, the site has a four-channel television service dedicated entirely to horse racing, HPItv. The live broadcasting of events is only a small part of its main features. To verify this, let’s take a closer look.
General presentation of the site
On the whole, the HPIBet platform presents a user-friendly and easy-to-use interface. The website has opted for distinctive colours for a more convenient navigation between the different sections. There are respective tabs on the page dedicated to horse racing, jockeys, multi-track live streaming, alerts and coach search. The simplistic look and feel of the interface provides a more immersive betting experience for all players. To shorten your search time, a search bar leads directly to many features, including statistics and win percentages, with one click or by using a few keywords. In addition, players will be able to enjoy a fully customisable design.
License to operate
Based on its history and reputation, HPIBet was the first legal online horse betting site in Canada. The site is licensed by the Ontario Gaming Commission (AGCO) and the Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (CPMA). Today, the site has a national license to operate without restrictions. There is no concern about user security, as the website has equipped its interface with SSL encryption, a high-performance technique used to protect the personal and financial data of member bettors.
Creating an account with HPIBet requires some basic information to confirm your identity. Also, you need to provide your name, current address, date of birth and your email address, which is essential for sending the activation link. Once the registration is complete, HPIBet gives you access to the odds margins for all horse races. In addition to this, there are a multitude of suggestions on posts, probabilities, intervals, pool sizes and many other options related to this type of betting. Only players who have reached the age of 18 are allowed to use the site. The platform keeps you constantly informed about the horses and races to bet on. For more detailed information, please read the terms and conditions page carefully.
To bet at your ease, HPIBet offers a mobile application optimised for the Android and iOS application systems. Whether you are on the move and at any location, the platform gives you access to all its services via your smartphone or tablet. However, you can enjoy these features in other ways. To stay informed, simply set up alerts on your mobile phone. This technique will allow you to determine the outcome of your bets, the total winnings or the various statistics on the start and results of the races on the horse you are betting on, to name but a few.
Bonuses and Promotions
As a new account holder, you will receive a free $2 bet from HPIBet to start your games. You will then have 30 days to wager at least $100. Once you have started betting, your player account will be credited with another $100 within 3 to 5 days. If you intend to release your winnings, you must use this bonus by placing bets. In addition to this, there are some fantastic promotions to improve your chances of winning. Take advantage of them but don’t forget to check the terms and conditions. On the other hand, keep an eye out for periodic offers by checking the promotions section. Among these, the loyalty programme offers you the opportunity to enjoy multiple rewards and special offers. In addition to the bonuses acquired through the collection of points, HPIBet also offers free tickets for certain races, as well as invitations to exclusive events, among other rewards.
The betting offers
Although HPIBet only offers one type of sport, it appeals to its customers with several varieties of bets. In general, the basic bets include predictions on winnings, placement and performance. In the following, we will list the most popular options for the majority of users:
- The winning bet, considered to be the simplest of all. You will systematically win if your horse comes out on top of the race;
- The place bet, valid for an event during which your favourite horse is in first or second place;
- The show bet, similar to the one above but including the third place;
The more complicated bets include the ‘Multi-race’, ‘Daily Double’, ‘Grand Slam’, ‘Exactor’, ‘Superfecta’, ‘Super hi-5’ and even as many more. Most of them seem to be riskier, but can lead to bigger payouts. HPIBet has also equipped its platform with the “Live Streaming” function, one of the strong points of the site. You will find live streaming of all the races from all over the world. By the way, you will be offered a free view on 4 tracks during the first month of your membership.
Available payment methods
The methods of depositing and withdrawing money at HPIBet seem slightly insufficient, but don’t worry. You can top up your account using bank cards such as UKash Visa and MasterCard, Paysafecard and Online UKash. To cash out your winnings, you need to have a bank account to transfer the funds via the website.
The withdrawal time is within a few working days. For this operation, you should verify your identity beforehand. In addition, withdrawing funds from a racetrack requires a valid government-issued photo ID (driving licence or passport). This document must be accompanied by a signed withdrawal slip. HPIBet generally sets a maximum withdrawal limit of $1,000, but you must give the payment service at least a 24-hour notice if you intend to withdraw a more substantial sum. You will also have a log of the last two months of your transactions. Another advantage is that you will receive refunds, depending on certain parameters.
