Is your site secure?
We are using the latest technology to ensure your information's safety and privacy. The website is secured via SSL certificates issued by VeriSign. All sensitive information entered on our site is encrypted using minimum 128-bit SSL encryption.

When you log into the application, your account number, PIN are all transmitted securely because this is your confidential and personal account information. This information is sent to and stored on our server with a session identifier number. After logging in, the actual betting and information pages are done outside of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) so that the application can run efficiently. The session identifier number is linked to your bets in this application rather than your confidential account information. When you place a bet, it is transmitted along with a session identifier. When it reaches our server it uses the session identifier to match your bets to your account information, which you had previously transmitted securely. Because the server does all of this removed from visibility to the Internet, and within the server side of the application, your confidential information is well protected from the outside world. We found this secure and insecure page mix gave us the best performance while maintaining your account security.
