Some might think that it can’t be that easy promotional wise, but it is.
Watchandwager.com is not your “run of the mill” ADW (advance deposit wagering) company. It is a online gaming website that is a subsidiary of WatchandWager.com LTD (the ultimate “parent company” is Webis Holdings PLC, traded on the London exchange), which offers an advanced deposit wagering platform for all forms of gaming.
“We offer more tracks than any other platform, and we offer more free programs than any site.” said Arthur Pegg, Vice President of Simulcast Sales for Watchandwager.com,” “You can get a program for Solvalla in Sweden on WatchandWager.com, but not Woodbine or Meadowlands – “We are working on trying to find a pricing model that is acceptable to all parties involved.
“The customer is king at WatchandWager,” Pegg notes. “We go the extra mile for our patrons, and deliver value-added tools to them, such as the separate basic instructions on wagering that we have developed for five different breeds of horses on which we offer opportunity.”
And their new promotional bonus for first time signups in the USA, is certainly attracting attention. If you don’t want to jump in feet first for $300, you don’t have to. It’s a four-tier bonus option. First you can deposit $50, then wager $50 and then you get $50. It’s tiered to do the same for a $100, $200 and $300 deposits. Check out the full details on their website at https://www.watchandwager.com/news/23 for the bonus structure.
Pegg himself has seen a lot of the USA. en route to his present position, achieved at age 33.
A native of Virginia, Pegg graduated from Penn State University (100 miles from the nearest racetrack, Penn National), where “interestingly, I majored in meteorology.” But one can see a definite connection between the weather and the ponies: racetrack conditions play such an important part of racing, and what is “a 40% chance of rain tonight” but another way of saying “Rain this evening is 3 to 2”?
Pegg is also a graduate of the renowned University of Arizona Racetrack Management Program, steered that way by Lenny Hale, of NYRA and Maryland Jockey Club fame. He joined WatchandWager, where in short order he developed a job profile entailing ADW operations and business/product development, which includes overseeing simulcasting, licensing requirements and compliance, the company website, performance analytics, and …of course….marketing.
And he’s working with California harness veterans Chris Schick and Ben Kenney at Cal Expo, subcontracting as operations overseers to WatchandWager as Golden Bear Racing, to help revive the fortunes of Cal-Expo, while the parent company tries to expand its “footprint” in the United States.
So as promotions go, it seems that Watchandwager has one that is pretty tough to beat, especially in these economic times. It’s almost like a free wager. Deposit some money, then bet it, then you get it back. No “catch-22’s” attached!
