Fixed odds betting at the Cayamans Park racetrack started at the inaugural running of the Mouttet Mile, meaning bettors could lock in their wagering prices as soon as their bets were placed.
The launch of fixed odds betting at Caymanas Park follows BetMakers’ launch in New Jersey earlier this year.
BetMakers Head of Business Development Dallas Baker said: “The culture and passion for racing in Jamaica needs to be seen to be believed. Jamaica punches well above its weight when it comes to betting handle so we are in for some exciting times now that we have launched fixed odds betting in a second jurisdiction in the Americas.”
Furthermore, through its partnership with Supreme Ventures, fixed odds betting will be available on cayamansbet.com from early 2023, the racetrack’s online betting portal.
Baker added: “Like all of our partner tracks, we are committed to the growth of racing and re-investment in the industry.
“As we have seen in Australia with the boom in racing handle over the fifteen years following the deregulation of fixed odds betting, new players are entering the industry, innovation and technology advancements are plentiful, and the customer experience is at an all-time high.
“The team at Caymanas Park, headed by Chairman Solomon Sharpe, are committed to the promotion of horse racing and we are very proud to join with them in efforts to grow racing for all participants in Jamaica.”
