We have received some complaints from TVG customers in Virginia who have been informed by TVG that they can’t bet on races at Colonial Downs. When a Virginia customer contacted TVG, this is the message they got back: "Thank you for contacting TVG. Per our agreement with the Virginia Racing Commission, we are not able to offer wagering on the Mid Atlantic tracks to Virginia residents.”
We were pretty sure no such agreement exists, and, if one ever did, it expired when the ADW legislation when into effect on January 1, 2010.
All this info was shared between the various stakeholders, and Virginia Racing Commission Executive Director Vic Harrison then contacted the folks at TVG who passed him on to some more folks at TVG’s Oregon wagering hub.
Long story short, the TVG folks say the restriction will be lifted in a day or two provided there are no other glitches with the Mid-Atlantic Cooperative or some other group/groups.
