Prescribed information requirements
In addition to the levy, betting operators must supply prescribed information on betting transactions conducted on WA races to the Commission. Prescribed information includes information in documents, records or accounts relating to racing bets placed with or placed or accepted through, a betting operator. Betting operators must co-operate with the Chief Steward of RWWA and authorised officers of the Commission by allowing them to view any document, record or accounts of the operator containing prescribed information.
Failure to comply may result in a breach of the Betting Control Act 1954.
The information is required to evaluate WA racing programs, assess the profitability and revenue generation of specific race types, maximise revenue returns and distribution back to the racing industry and detect any abnormal wagering activity and thus protect the integrity and reputation of the WA racing industry.
The information received by the Commission for the above purposes, is provided in a summary or statistical format to RWWA and does not directly associate the betting operator with the data.
