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.
I’m proud to announce that Horse Racing Park and Horse Race Game, two long-time highly-respected horse racing games, have formed a synergistic working relationship to increase the overall quality of each respective game and eventually provide additional engaging features.
With the new desktop client release, some players are asking about why their retired horses are no longer showing. It’s a two-step process which I’m sure most of the players have already figured out. After you have installed the new desktop client extension, the first update puts all your horses in the Trainer 9000 file including your old retired horses, if they had a BSR above, I believe, 135.
All the modified change to the desktop client are finally now available. These include resolving issues for players who were not able to open the game or the game would not start. In addition, the following other changes have been made:
• Community Horses – In the update we have reverted back to the old community horses and their attributes.
For players with larger stables please let us know what you think. When using the non unity features the page loads very fast. I also love the sorting by BSR feature we have added, this will allow you to manage your horses more effectively. We also added the feature that lets you know when you already have a horse in a tournament that you might be considering with other horses in your stable.
