Telephone Account Betting
Another way to enjoy the thrill of betting without having to go to the track
is by using the Telephone Account Betting (T.A.B.) system. There are no special
surcharges and full track pari-mutuel prices are paid.
In order to use the T.A.B. system, you have to obtain a
Application forms are available from Fraser Downs, or you can call (604)
576-9141 for further information.
Listed here is the legal information one should know when obtaining a
Telephone Account Betting account.
1. Account Holder Responsible For Account Number And Code Name
Telephone betting accounts are for the personal use of the account holder.
Account holders are responsible for all bets placed through their accounts by
any person unless and until notice has been received in writing by Fraser Downs
that the account has been canceled. The account holder bears full responsibility
for maintaining the secrecy of his account number and code name.
2. Deposits And Withdrawals
A deposit or withdrawal of money to an account can only be made by the
account holder or his legal representative. Deposits can be made in person or by
mail. If deposits are made by cheque, the account will not be credited until the
cheque clears the bank. ALLOW 10 DAYS. Withdrawals can be made in person during
the business hours of the T.A.B. system or by mail. Accounts may be closed in
the same manner as withdrawals. No withdrawals can be made after post time of
the 9th race.
3. Account Balances Do Not Earn Interest
Money on deposit will not bear any interest to the account holder.
4. How Can Bets Be Placed?
You will be asked for you CODE NUMBER. The operator will enter your code
number into a video display terminal and the details of your account will be
displayed on the video terminal including your account balance and CODE NAME.
You will be asked for your CODE NAME and if correctly provided, you will be
advised of you account balance and will be able to make wagers up to the balance
in your account. After you have made your desired wager the operator will repeat
the wagers to you and you will be asked to confirm the wagers. WHERE A DISPUTE
ARISES AS TO WHAT NUMBER OR DENOMINATION OF BET WAS REQUESTED, THE TAPE RECORDED
BET TRANSACTION DATA RESTATED BACK AND ACKNOWLEDGED BY THE CALLER AS CORRECT
SHALL BE CONSIDERED THE ACTUAL BET.
Of course you can make wagers against your balance more than once. Your
account will be credited with winning tickets instantaneously so that you will
be able to make wagers against your winnings.
5. No Credit Betting
There is not credit betting. Only account holders will be able to bet by
telephone and only up to the balance in their account.
6. When Can Bets Be Made?
Bets can be made by telephone each racing day until the conclusion of Fraser
Downs' season. The system will open several hours before post time of the first
race through post time of the 10th race. Account holders are urged to make
wagers as early as possible. It takes longer to process a bet by telephone and
there is more possibility of being "SHUT OUT".
7. Triactor Wagers
It is a B.C. Racing Commission rule that there must be a minimum of 7
starters in all Triactor races and therefore betting does not open on the last
race until all horses for that race have been examined by the Racing Commission
veterinarian. Therefore, betting on the last race will only be accepted from the
time the windows open till post time of the last race.
8. Scratches and Driver Changes
Account holders will be informed of scratches and driver changes if requested
when placing their bets, but the operators WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO GIVE ODDS OR
RESULTS OF PREVIOUS RACES, please ask for selections by numbers.
9. Written Statements
Written statements of accounts will only be provided upon request and will
contain betting data pertaining to a maximum of 21 days preceding the request.
Fraser Downs is not required to provide a statement more than once every 21
Any claims by the account holder that his or her statement of account is
incorrect should be made within 14 days of the statement date.
11. Cannot Cancel Bets
No bet shall be canceled by an account holder once the bet has been accepted
and recorded in accordance with Agriculture Canada Regulations.
12. Account May Be Closed By Fraser Downs
Fraser Downs reserves the right to close the account of any account holder
for any reason by returning the account balance and a closing statement.
