    Twin Spires

    Anyone use Twin Spires for their online horse wagering. It says they give free past performances.

    Just wondering if anyone had positive or negative experience.

    I know someone who uses http://www.brisbet.com to wager. Churchill Downs bought brisbet in June last year but just recently started pushing people to http://www.twinspires.com.

    I have not talked to the guy since the change but I can tell you he liked Brisbet and it seems they are being run the same as far as getting free past performances. He would get a credit back for his past performances and said he never had a problem. The past performances come from http://www.brisnet.com

    I am thinking of giving TwinSpires a try soon. Hope this helps.

    I use twinspires.. Their PP is free to the track you wager on. It's a little bit different that DRF. They use their own speed rating. I find it a little confusing. I still use drf. Payout is fast specially using the ezdeposit / withdrawal method. Good Luck.

    twinspires is a joke

    Twinspires is not to be trusted. On Thursday December the 9th 2010 they accepted wagers on races 8 and 9 at aqueduct and at the end of those races they gave the winning wagers there money bet back instead of there winning payouts. If there was a problem with the wagers not being accepted through aqueduct I would think that they would have refunded your wager back at the end of the 8th race where the problem occurred not at the end of the card where they were collecting more money with the loosing wagers from races 8 and 9. Also there customer service is known for saying they will call you back within a certain time period but it never happens. If you continue to choose twinspires good luck too you. Clint

    I'm extremely disappointed with it, I think Twinspires is terrible.. I was with youbet for about 6 years and I've moved to a different ADW once I spent a week with Twinspires.

    brisnet pp's can be obtained for free but they are not worth it. use drf and you will be better off.

    attention all former you bet happy customers. the highly touted twinspires just isn't up to the standards we enjoyed at youbet are they? they try but fall short on some levels. difficult to check pending wagers and get back to betting screen. not impossible but difficult. haven't dealt with tvg because of fees but may consider switching if they throw out a perk or two.

    yup - Twinspires is working fine for me and has been all day.

    When I had youbet/twinspires I always leaned towards twinspires ...
    I actually LOVE the Brisnet ultimate PP's ... in fact I download all tracks each day and if there is not a horse I want to bet at a track I have downloaded a PP for ... I generally find some hotshot favorite and stick $2 to show ... just to get the PP's "free"

    ... customer service has always replied to any question I have sent them within an hour ...

    Each to their own I guess ...

    I also have accounts at xpressbet (I like) and dayatthetrack (also good .. but below the other two IMHO)

    you could be on the classic version if so hit back button twice after checking pending wagers & it takes right back to betting or try express version

    good luck

    I've played a lot of different sites. Twinspires is one of the best ones imo quality wise but one of the worse rewards wise. So it matters what's important you. I still place some wagers there and use their free brisnet ultimate past peformance and actually really like it. I think it has even more information I can't find in DRF, but it's speed rating is different. Great interface for betting and watching races, imo, usually very stable and easy transferring money in and out with no fees. Also I don't think there are any tracks that they don't cover. The downside is there are virtually no rewards. To me the cash back is more enticing. Sites like horseplayesrbet.com and idabet.com have the best rewards of any site I've played (and I've played a lot). I probably avg about a 7% rebate on all my bets on those sites (more for exotic bets which I play a lot of.). So I make the bulk of my wagering on those sites. Still do play a decent amount on twinspires as I like their interface and pps.

    they have improved since taking over youbet. rewards are weak, but deposit option and withdrawal easily the best. i don't like brisnet but if you do they are virtually free. can't beat that. menu of tracks and video more than sufficient. no fees (like tvg has) makes it worthwhile. use them.

    They are ok

    They are ok, I have gotten paid when communications error happened, and I called and complained. Good features.
