    How to get Young People to the race track

    Agree with you to an extent but I think the full day is half the problem, and the fact in general there is nothing going on in between races which can make it boring as bat shit.

    Good offer I just signed up

    Think the point of the post was for the tab to improve there offerings to be competitive in the market.

    TAB Free Bets

    I won a bonus bet on Friday but it still isn’t available to use today. Do these only get credited to accounts between Monday and Friday?

    TAB Free Bets

    I get your point but you could put a minimum odds requirement and turnover requirement e.g 3 times like some of the offshore operators have. I get why they are doing it they way they are now but I don’t really bother doing any of the top up bonus offers I get any more.

    They Aussie bookies do quite a lot of good specials like that NRL often has if your team leads by 12 it’s settled as a winner.

    Authentic & credible

    Personally I find the rugby panel shows where it’s all ex players quite boring and lifeless. The NRL probably has a better balance of both ex players current players and journalists/presenters. I think you want a mix of people to capture a range of thoughts and views.

    Betting or Collecting $1,000... Info from TAB.

    Is the gold card photo Id?

    TAB and virtual races

    You can see the attraction for the tab but I would have thought there’s enough crap all ready for people to bet on.

    Mark MacNamara A Big Loss

    Can you really get stuck into the management when he wants to be closer to home and family? Reminds me of the James Maloney situation when he left the Warriors, management coped the flack but at the end of the day there wasn’t a lot they could have done to keep him.

    latest gem from TAB

    Hard to see the Labour Party or Green Party supporting either of those proposals isn’t?

    Outsourcing TAB - Huge Mistake !

    It’s not all outsourced though is it? I thought all the main sports and nz stuff were still done here and it was the more random stuff they were out sourcing e.g Russian 3rd division football.

    Glenda Hughes departing e-mail...

    I know a bloke who’s been a small time owner his whole life and never voted for Winston but says he is next election because of what he’s doing so there maybe well be a bit of influence. Given Winston polls around the 5% threshold it a few votes could have a very big influence on the next election.

    Mrs Cubes gets grumpy with the TAB

    I don’t thinks it’s long enough, there’s plenty of people who only go to the races once or twice a year and don’t tend to visit tabs. Surely a year or even two years is a more reasonable time frame e.g bet on Wellington Cup day you have until the next Wellington Cup day to claim the ticket. Granted in most case we will be talking about smallish amounts but it’s still frustrating.

    They just spout the same line and send you a copy of the rules.

    More bull%$^% from the NZRB...

    It’s likely related to the new anti money laundering rules that have come into force. A couple of years ago I had to provide id to the bank even though I had been with them for years.
  18. Any idea why? From what I gather the rugby pools was fairly well supported particularly when the jackpot got up a bit.

    A stunning effort by the “stopper”

    Almost as silly as those of us who predict the sharkies to beat a depleted manly today,no?

    Your comparing apples with oranges in that scenario. Someone running for public office stating something on the public record during and election campaign or just after is completely different to a private citizen.

    Let me tell you about my TAB experience

    The machines also quite regularly seem to freeze on the sports options. I’m guessing it’s sometging to do with linking in with the new system.

    Let me tell you about my TAB experience

    Not supporting the idea of not being able to open in an account in a branch but I wouldnt have thought many people are not opening them in branches these days, the vast majority would be online. In fact having to go into a branch and verify your id was probably a major deterrent to getting accounts active.
