Track betting

Bookmaking can only be carried out at a track, which is not an approved horse racecourse, when the occupier of that track is the holder of a licence issued under Schedule 3 to the Betting Gaming and Lotteries Act, 1963 (Referred to as a Track Betting Licence).

This licence is required where bookmaking has taken place at a track or stadium on more than seven previous days in any year. The definition of 'track' extends to any premises on which races, of any description, athletic sports or other sporting events take place.
