Betting


  • By far the most populous form of licensed gambling premises in the UK are betting offices of which there are around 8,500.
  • Bookmakers directly support about 40,700 full-time jobs and indirectly support a further 62,300 making a total of well over 100,000 employees. The industry offers a high number of jobs to those with few formal qualifications, boosting employment opportunities and skills development.
  • The Horserace Betting Levy (known in the industry simply as "the Levy") was introduced in 1961 when high street betting shops were legalised. It is a statutory financial contribution in the form of a hypothecated tax that bookmakers must pay to the Horserace Betting Levy Board, which then disburses such funds to the horseracing industry for purposes set out in the Betting, Gaming & Lotteries Act 1963. These include veterinary research, the preservation of rare breeds of horses and the general improvement of horseracing. The Board is a non-departmental public body sponsored by DCMS and funded out of the Levy it collects from bookmakers.
  • The largest known bet placed on the Super Bowl was made by an unknown gambler at the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas. The gambler put $2.4 million on San Francisco beating San Diego in Super Bowl XXIX. The 49ers won the gambler $300,000.
  • According to Guinness World Records, the highest odds for an accumulator bet were 3,072,887 to 1 by an unnamed woman from Nottingham on 2 May 1995.
