Social Responsibility


The Waikato Racing Club will not permit BYO Alcohol on course from October 1st 2014. Anyone who is caught bringing alcohol on track will have it confiscated and may be asked to leave the racecourse.

Responsible Gambling

Treated responsibly, wagering on racing is associated with fun and excitement. However, we recognise that for a small percentage of people it may cause harm and lead to potential gambling problems.

Set Your Limits Programme

If you are a TAB Account customer, you can request that a weekly limit be placed on your spend and/or maximum loss through your TAB Account. Once the agreed limit has been reached, no further bets will be accepted through that account for that week.

Additionally, a wide variety of personalisation options are now available on for TAB Account customers. Login to your account then head to My TAB and look for 'My Betting Preferences' in the left hand menu, or click on the 'My Preferences' link in the horizontal menu bar on the Sport and Racing page. By setting your preferences on, you can personalise the way that you like to bet with an added safety net to ensure that you spend the individual bet value that you wanted to.

Multi Venue Self Exclusion

ProgrammeAny customer can voluntarily arrange for access to TAB betting services to be denied. It is useful for customers who want to stop their betting activity. The Self Exclusion Programme may operate indefinitely and can only be revoked with the agreement of the NZ Racing Board. Contact TAB Customer Services for more information.
