Bet as a Spectator and More

Typically when you head to the race track to bet on horses you are betting as a spectator. That's not the case with the iHorse Betting 2 app as this one gives you the ability to bet as a bettor, a breeder, an owner, play as a trainer, or a jockey. This adds a unique twist of fun to the game. Additionally, you don't start by just strolling into the track; instead, you start by buying a pony, then training it, and riding it so you can raise the perfect winning horse. The app supports a variety of achievements that you'll be able to earn along the way.

The best iPhone apps for live scores

There are a number of in-app purchases available, all of which is paid by with virtual cash. These range in price from $0.99 to $9.99 depending on how much you want to buy. The app currently has 3.5 out of five stars from users who have left mixed reviews. Its last update was almost two years ago when some minor improvements were made.

Bring on the Fun

The iHorse Betting 2 has a number of fun features to help draw in players and keep them coming back. The developers have put a lot of emphasis on making all the graphics, sounds, tracks, scenes, and commentary incredibly realistic. You can view the various horse track records, horse attributes, the pace featured, and the best suitable distance for the horse. The race outcomes aren’t always predictable, which means there is excitement and anticipation. The outcome is actually based on a variety of factors again helping to add to its realistic vibe.

I do think to excel at this game you need to have some basic knowledge of horse racing and the jargon used. Without that basic foundation it can be a bit tricky to pick up on.
