Anyone that is a VIP on August 1st will have their Membership extended by one month. Also, to reiterate there will be no monthly prizes in August. They will pick up again in September and the September monthly prizes will include any races that run in August or September.
The server move is requiring us to reprogram basically the whole site. There is still some work to be done but progress is definitely being made. We are going to have to ask you again to be patient with the process. It is a very big process. Some features are likely not going to be available immediately right after the move but will be added back in as quickly as possible.
HorseRaceGame.com will be moved to new server's on August 1st. We are working out a lot of the details of this move as we speak. It is a very big task. We will be providing more details of this move in the next week as we are able to finalize things but we expect the move will require the site to be down for 24-72 hours.
We just wanted to give an update that we are continuing to move forward on the migration. As mentioned previously in our introduction the migration is taking some time as we knew it would. It is difficult to estimate the exact amount of time in relationship to the work that needs to be done but we can say that we are well into the process.
It’s been almost ten years since we moved this game to the web, and I want to thank everyone for being a part of this great journey and transition! I’m so excited to announce that Virtual Sports, the absolute leader in horse racing games, is in the process of taking control of our company. The final phase of the hand-off will occur at the end of next month.
Some players have recently been inquiring about what is going on. We just wanted to say hello and make an official announcement that we are indeed in the middle of a migration to Virtual Sports, Inc. The overall process is going to take some time but will be a positive to HorseRaceGame.com once completed.
I want to congratulate all the annual winners and the December winners. You all did a great job managing your horses and stables. What an exciting year! December and Annual Bonus Rewards winners will be posted in the community by tomorrow. All winners should receive a private message notification from our prize team within the next couple of days.
First, we want to apologize for not communicating or providing any significant updates over the last couple of months, particularly since we announced potential changes in the stable management program.
In order to enhance player activity, we are going to try to motivate players to become more active with the horses sitting in their stable. In order to do this, we may be required to implement a fee (game points) for all horses sitting in a player’s stable that have not entered a tournament over a certain period of time.
We have been making and are about to complete some small changes to stay compliant with the fantasy and skill gaming laws which allow us to accept major credit cards. The Puzzle Program and the Championship Race Program will no longer have cash payouts. The payouts have been modified, and where applicable for VIP players, have changed from gift cards to game points.
