In order to maximize your enjoyment of our game, Horse Racing Simulation has provided a robust, feature-rich community. Unlike any other horse racing community out there, either virtual or real horse racing, our users will find themselves totally engaged in a world of factual, historical, statistical and entertaining content. In addition, players have the opportunity to either watch the virtual races in their web browser or, for a more enriched detailed experience, players can download our Windows operating system application and watch the 3D virtual races there, as well. In order to maximize your enjoyment of our horse racing community, we have prepared this simple document to provide educational guidelines for both the community and community interaction with our Horse Racing Fantasy Game. Please note, our community comes with a strict set of rules and terms of service. Please see and read the Community Terms of Service for that detailed information.
Please also remember that a lot of the functions and features used by our members inside the Community will earn points for them. Please see the detailed section on Points, Badges & Awards and also our video tutorial on "Community Game Points - How to Earn & Spend". Our point system is a critical and fun element of play. In our virtual horse racing world, including both our fantasy game and our horse racing community, a lot of the actions you perform will earn you points. Points are our currency for tournament entries, discounts and even to qualify for free gifts in our online store. Points are also a crucial part of being recognized as a game leader. Also keep in mind that just about every action listed below provides the opportunity to earn points. So, it's just as important to stay as active in the Community as it is in our game. Our game and community live and breathe as one.
