Tabcorp Hopes Issues Sorted Today

System issues plague betting systems

Tabcorp Australia hopes its tote betting system will be fully operational from today, Monday 9 November.

There was a major outage in the Tabcorp betting system on Saturday that impacted its operations and systems. This was probably caused by a smoke and likely fire incident at a third-party managed data centre, which resulted in extensive damage to Tabcorp servers and associated infrastructure.

This caused major system issues and the closure of retail venues, as well as TAB being unable to commingle into Tabcorp pools on Australian races as normal this morning.

Tabcorp is progressively restoring its operations and TAB will attempt to offer the normal range of commingled pools on selected Australian races this morning.

If commingling is not possible, TAB will operate local Win, Place, Swinger, Exacta, Trifecta and Quartet pools on the last three races at the Canberra and Pinjarra harness meetings.
