You will require this authorisation if you operate as a licensed bookmaker and you intend to conduct telephone betting on sports or racing events. This licence enables you, as a bookmaker at a racecourse or sporting ground, to accept bets via the telephone from outside the venue.
A bookmaker provides wagering (betting) services to the general public at race courses or sporting grounds. In order to conduct the activities of a bookmaker at a specific racing course or sporting ground, you must also have received permission from the authority that controls the course or grounds.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
