Derby Jackpot Holds 200,000 Users

US online horse racing firm Derby Jackpot has announced that it has registered 200,000 players to its website and processed more than $10 million in bets since it launched.

Derby Jackpot is a site that is currently operating in 37 states in a legal fashion, and broadcasts races from more than 100 racetracks. Horse racing is one of the few legal forms of online gambling in the US, and Derby Jackpot takes advantage of this, mixing the sport with casino mechanics to make the activity palatable for younger players.

The numbers will be encouraging for Derby Jackpot's owner Giddy Apps, who just completed a second round of funding which will fuel its its second horse racing product launch early next year.
