Betting Window Software for the Home, Office, or Club!
Great for your Kentucky Derby party!  Great for your charity fund raising events!

Backyard Bookie software is the ultimate tool for handling betting window operations at your Kentucky Derby party, or any other event focused around a competition.  Use it for any of the major thoroughbred racing events, for other national sporting league championships, or for your club's golf tournament betting.  Many more uses!
  • Take bets just like a race track betting window!
  • Handles win, place, show, exacta, trifecta, and pick 3 through pick 6 bets!
  • Print tickets or record the name of the bettor for easy cash distribution!
  • Display the odds based on the bets made at your party or event just like the track tote board!
  • Enter the results and the payouts are determined in seconds!

Backyard Bookie is NOT an Internet gambling service.  While you can enter and payout track odds if you wish, the program is primarily designed to calculate odds and payouts based on the bets made at your event.  That way, all or a designated portion of the money bet is distributed back to the bettors, eliminating the risk of a loss (or gain) for the "house".  For charitable purposes, a small portion of the bets can be withheld from the payout calculation.

Bring the fun of the track to your backyard!
