Horseplayers can now get all the TAB betting information they need on their cell phones.

Phumelela Gold Enterprises (PGE) has partnered with Real Time Mobile (RTM) to offer punters on their mobiles the same information that is displayed online by TAB. This includes current payouts, race-by-race results and dividends and the latest status of bets like the Place Accumulator, Jackpot and Pick 6.

Soccer 6 and Soccer 4 enthusiasts can view all the current pool and match details, and will have access to live score updates for all matches on their mobiles. Additional services include a text commentary on soccer games.

One of the many benefits of the new service is the low cost of subscription, which is substantially less than the cost of telephone calls to obtain the same range of information.

The RTM system keeps pace with the constantly changing TAB information system, making it possible to provide players with the latest data.

Phumelela GM: Marketing and Communications, Robert Garner, said the combination of portability of the service and the level of information makes the service a winner.

"Now you can have all the information available in a TAB outlet or on your PC screen in the palm of your hand," said Garner. "This level of convenience and easy access will be a hit with horseracing and soccer fans."

The service is available to subscribers at a cost of just R12 a week. All you have to do to get started is to sms RTM to 31809 to receive your link to click and download.

Horseracing and soccer fans can also visit the RTM website, click on download/subscribe, and choose a subscription package that suits their needs.

The RTM service is being offered on a free trial basis for one week.
