4 - Private betting

28.17. The Act also says that betting is private if it is domestic betting or workers’ betting. Domestic betting is a betting transaction made on premises in which each party to the transaction habitually resides. Workers’ betting is where a betting transaction is made between persons who are employed by the same employer. A person does not commit an offence under s.33 or s.37 of the Act if he or she provides facilities for private betting.
