“Following Age Verification test purchasing conducted by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, supported by the Gambling Commission and Trading Standards, seven on-course bookmakers are facing regulatory action.
The Gambling Commission have confirmed in their news report, that of the seventeen on-course operators tested at Royal Ascot, seven permitted a 16 year old to place a £5 bet.
Richard Watson, who is the Gambling Commission Executive Director, has stated:
“These licence reviews show how strongly we feel about underage gambling. Every single gambling business must protect children from gambling but the on course bookmakers results have remained unacceptable.”
For further information please see the Gambling Commission report here.”
