Responsible Drinking & Gambling

Having a punt while enjoying an ice-old beer is an integral part of the raceday experience for thousands of adults who walk through the gates of Ascot Racecourse and Belmont Park but Perth Racing acknowledges, for some people, gambling and/or drinking has the potential to become a problem that impacts on themselves, their families, their friends and their communities.

Perth Racing adheres to Racing and Wagering Western Australia's Responsible Code of Practice. The code represents a self-regulatory, whole-of-industry commitment to best practice in the provision of responsible wagering. It's a strategy for both on- and off-course services that incorporates problem gambling prevention initiatives, community education, compliance monitoring and the identification of procedures to connect people who step forward to professional support channels.

Perth Racing is committed to the responsible service of alcohol. Perth Racing staff act in accordance with the Liquor Control Act 1988 (WA) and related legislations to assist in maintaining an enjoyable and safe environment. Under the Liquor Control Act 1988 (WA), it's an offence to sell or supply liquor to a person under the age of 18 years on licensed or regulated premises; or for a person under the age of 18 years to purchase, or attempt to purchase, liquor on licensed or regulated premises.
