Did You Know?

In 2007, The Daily Race Game was fully rolled out after a successful pilot run. The game, which now features improved graphics, allows players to bet on horses that are competing in an animated race. The monitor game was immediately sought after by agents who wanted to bolster their Keno sales. Races are aired every four minutes from 5:02 a.m. to 12:58 a.m. at hundreds of locations.
