Sona Mobile supplies NYRA

Gaming software and system supplier Sona Mobile Holdings Corporation announced that it has completed the “Express Funding” functionality of the internet wagering application for the New York Racing Association.

The system project is the second phase of a previously announced agreement between both parties. Under the terms of the agreement, Sona Mobile was contracted to develop a web-based wagering platform for NYRA which allows racing fans to access real-time racetrack information and securely place wagers on all races.

Phase I of the project included online registration, access to track information and online wagering capabilities. NYRA, which owns and operates the three largest racetracks in New York, will pay Sona Mobile the remaining 50 percent of the development funds following the launch of Phase II.

Express Funding is the new way for NYRA Rewards Program members to fund their accounts. Members making personal check deposits, including electronic funds transfer requests, will now receive immediate credits to their account.
