Any one sign up yet? They're advertising a $100 sign up bonus but don't mention if a minimum deposit is required. What way did you load your account? Credit/debit card? In person/cash? Mail in a check? Other?

TIA

Was told it had nothing to do with how much deposited, but how often you wagered.

TVG didn't allow it for awhile because of that. I assumed when it did something changed. I don't see how they could do it if it wasn't.

I'm fairly certain that online gambling is still against the law if you reside in Arkansas.

Parimutel wagering is legal in Arkansas....even online.  Oaklawn is using the money generated from Oaklawnanywhere and putting a share into the purses.

It's the old Thoroughbets.com, just rerouted to OaklawnAnywhere.com if you're inside the state.

I've had a Throughbets account for almost a decade now. I logged in a few weeks ago because I was watching some Australian meet and wanted to play (don't judge me!) and it routed me to the new Oaklawn site.

Will Oaklawn be providing WiFi  for a person's device or will the bettor be using his own data plan? (While at the track of coarse).

Is anyone having trouble loading up the "Classic" version?  All they've done here is make Twinspires bad.  I'm in to get the free $100 and get back to twinspires.

I have never done any online betting until yesterday.  I signed up for OaklawnAnywhere, and I enjoyed it, even though I lost a few bucks.

I can't get the classic version to load either but it's worth it for the free $100.  As soon as that money is gone, I'll be back to Twinspires.

Sounds like a good thing. I can't find anything in the fine print that says you have to do anything other than wager $100 within 14 days of account activation to get $100 added to your account.

To get the classic version to work, you have to "allow mixed content" on your browser.  Can't spend the $100 fast enough!!!

Had free wifi last year at the track.

At Oaklawn, pull up you wifi search and click "oaklawnanywhere" it should automatically join with no password. At least mine did today.

After today's card I will have wagered exactly $100. I will let you know if the fairy adds another 100 to my account.

Well it worked. I met the requirement Saturday and got the money today. Thank goodness because there wasn't much of that initial $100 left!

Friday I tried to use my Twinspires account with IPhone to Wager while at Oaklawn, It would not let me log in while I was at the track. Went to the Arlington where we were staying and was able to log in and Wager on Oaklawn from there. Has anybody else had trouble using Twinspires to wager on the races at Oaklawn? Anyway I just went ahead and filled out my Oaklawn Anywhere Account to get the 100$. I assume there will be no trouble with logging in to your Oaklawn account to wager with while at the Track.

I just looked and they have deposited the $100 into my account. I bet $100 Sunday. They said up to 10 days but mine was in within 3.

Being an existing user of the other app from last year OP sent me a check to close out my account. It had a flier in it saying to sign up for OaklawAnywhere.  I did and that was in December.  No offer of the $100 at that tme.  I went over the $100 Monday but it also states you have to bet with 10 days of signing up.  Mine sign up put me well past 10 days. I doubt I get the $100.

I used the service only on Monday. It worked flawlessly.  I use the Oaklawn Classic view.  The Oaklawn Express/Pro was too complicated for me.  KISS. Keep It Simple Stupid. Some of you guys that do a lot of online betting might use the Express/Pro.  I used it here at the house a couple of times and works exactly the same as it did at the track.

It is pretty straight forward to use.  Dropdown boxes and make your selection.  Then place your bet.  Follow the instructions and it is a piece of cake. One great feature is the last minute betting ability.  I wait sometimes to see what the final odds might be then place my bet withing the last minute.  I have yet to be shutout.  Just make sure you allow 10 or 15 seconds to enter your selections.

I assume to just use my Twinspires account with the exception being the free $100. One questions I have though, does the $100 that is required to be bet have to be bet on Oaklawn races or just through the OaklawnAnywhere menu? Can I bet my $100 elsewhere and still get the free $100?

Good question.  I would assume it would be for any track through the MyOaklawnAnywhere but I am not 100% sure on that.
