What is World Pool?

World Pool is an extension of the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s (HKJC) commingling business, where the HKJC accepts bets from overseas partners to expand its already large pari-mutuel pools for local Hong Kong racing.

World Pool is for non-Hong Kong races that the Hong Kong Jockey Club simulcast and wager on locally from overseas.

Who host the World Pool?

HKJC will be the host. However, not all bet-types will be available for World Pool. It will be dependent on the agreement between HKJC and wagering partners. The IP owner will continue to host any non-World Pool bet-types in their local jurisdiction.

Sam Nati, Head of Commingling, Hong Kong Jockey Club, explained more about the World Pool ahead of Dubai Super Saturday.
