Sports Betting: Law and Policy (Northern Ireland)

  • Jack Anderson
Chapter

Abstract

This book looks at Law and the Policy on Betting and Sport in many countries around the world—sport is a global phenomenon—providing a very useful and valuable comparative survey on a subject that is so vital for safeguarding and preserving the integrity of those sports in which betting is legally allowed. The country reports show how sports-related betting is organised in the country concerned, also from a historical and policy perspective (national Lotteries Act; state run/state licenced lotteries and/or private operators; how the licencing system for public operators works; state supervisory mechanisms, etc.), and contain a treatment of the national case law.
