Day of the Russian bookmaker (28/06)

In 2015, on the initiative of the Self-Regulatory Organization of Totalizators, the Day of Betting Organizers was established, that is, the Day of the Russian Bookmaker. The first Day of Betting Organizers was held on June 28, 2015, and since then it has been marked in the calendar of Russian bookmakers as a professional holiday, reports.

Initially, bets were accepted on the totalizator, which worked according to this principle - all bets on some event were summed up, the organizer of the totalizator took some guaranteed share for his services, and the entire prize fund was divided among those who correctly predicted the outcome of the event, who more often there were horse races. In order for the sweepstakes to accumulate a large amount of the prize fund, a large number of people betting was needed, therefore it was popular mainly at the racetracks.
