Betting Control Regulations 37.
Regulation 37 of the Betting Control Regulations 1978 makes provision for the recording of all betting transactions. This is conducted by recording the details of a bet onto a betting ticket for issue to the bettor, and duplicating the betting transaction into a bookmaker’s ledger. However, with the progress of technology, these transactions can now be undertaken with the assistance of a computer.
Regulation 37(5) enables a bookmaker to lodge an application with the Gaming and Wagering Commission of Western Australia to seek approval to use a computerised betting system to facilitate the recording of betting transactions. Prior to the Commission granting approval for the use of a computerised betting system, it must be satisfied that system you intend operating has been audited by an Inspector of the commission and meets the required output demands. Please note that this is not an application for a bookmaker’s licence.
