Urgent Notice to ALL Racecourse Bookmakers.

Due to a number of Bookmakers failing a recent age verification test, the Gambling Commission’s Enforcement Department has written to those failing.

Our own testing results are still disappointing and we must improve and if you have any doubts about a customer appearing to be under 21, you need to challenge them to prove that they are at least 18.

All On course Bookmakers should be aware that as a result of a warning by the Gambling Commission the BRBA have engaged Serve Legal to perform AV tests on ALL Northern Racecourses. Regrettably the pass rates for ALL those tested are still below expectation and we must warn ALL Bookmakers to be more vigilant. Obviously we are writing to BRBA Members to give them their results.

Following the robust warning from the Gambling Commission on the poor pass rates with AV testing in our sector we have engaged Serve Legal to do random tests in the North and the first results throughout June are very disappointing and we will be writing inform members of their results.

Would ALL involved please continue to be vigilant as your licence is at risk.
