Remote gaming site betfun, operated by the Hipódromo de Palermo, has added new options for its clients in the City of Buenos Aires. With the expansion of the platform, betfun adds games such as First Person Lightning Roulette, First Person Blackjack, Instant Roulette and First Person Roulette.

“The platform welcomes new users and doubles welcome bonuses. Plus, it rewards customers with significant benefits every month,” the Hipódromo explained. “In May, the platform surprised [users] by tripling deposits and [offering] bonuses and promotions,” the racecourse added.

With the authorization of the City of Buenos Aires regulator, the Lotería de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires (LOTBA), betfun became the first remote gaming site to operate in the Argentinian capital.

“Just like the Hipódromo, this platform provides an excellent service and adheres to the responsible gaming principles, which contributes to the primary and secondary prevention of problem gambling and helps the horse racing activity in Palermo,” betfun commented.

Fernando Facal, general manager of the Palermo racecourse, recently talked with SBC and commented that the operator had worked alongside Lotba to improve its platform’s technical operational standards, which he believes will be the stepping stone for the development of the online gambling market in the City of Buenos Aires.

“Last year, in the first few months of the pandemic, we started talking with Lotba to discuss the possibility of having an alternative to be able to transfer our gambling offering to an online platform, although the City’s online regulation was just starting to be processed,” Facal explained.

“We have to take into account that there was not much predictability in regards to the pandemic and we needed some alternative to cover all the expenses related to our operations, which are very large.

“Remote gaming is similar to online gambling, with the characteristic that you can only offer the same games that you have in physical casinos, which is why we can’t add sports betting [to our offering], for example.”
