These Terms are a binding legal agreement between You and Goodwin Racing Limited, a company registered in the United Kingdom (registered company number 03477145) whose registered office is 4 Kingfisher Court, Uckfield, East Sussex, United Kingdom, TN22 1DQ, United Kingdom, who operates this telephone betting service under the brand “Goodwin Racing”
Goodwin Racing Limited is licensed by the Gambling Commission under account number 2927 to provide these services to customers in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Goodwin Racing Limited is also the Merchant of Record, meaning it processes all debit card payments from customers. It is therefore the organisation responsible for processing all payments, including both deposits and withdrawals.
In these Terms and Conditions, Goodwin Racing Limited shall be referred to as “Goodwin Racing”, “us”, “we” or “our” and you are referred to as “you” or “your”.
The products and services that Goodwin Racing Limited offers are together referred to as the “Services”. Your agreement under these Terms and Conditions is with us for all the Services that You use.
1.1 All Customers must be 18 years of age or older and a resident in Great Britain or Northern Ireland in order to register and participate in any content, including the placing of stakes on a bet or participation in any other content found on this website.
1.2 It is an offence for anyone under the age of 18 to open an account or to gamble on this service.
1.3 In order to avoid unlawful betting, we reserve the right to carry out checks to verify the information provided.
1.3.1 For residents of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, we will undertake a search with a third party for the purpose of verifying that you are 18 or over and your identity, including your name, address and date of birth. Where these checks are unable to verify these details, we reserve the right to ask you for the following documents:
– a copy of your photo identification (valid passport or driving licence)
– a copy of a utility bill in your name confirming the address you have registered with Goodwin Racing (no more than three months old).
If we are unable to confirm that you are aged eighteen (18) or over and your identity, then we are required to suspend your account until satisfactory proof of your age and identity is provided.
In the event your account is suspended for this reason, please send all relevant documents to: firstname.lastname@example.org
1.4 You confirm that you are not currently subject to a self-exclusion with Goodwin Racing or Betgoodwin.co.uk and you have not signed up to a national self-exclusion register (such as GAMSTOP) which excludes you from gambling.
1.5 You represent to us (and acknowledge that we rely on these representations) that you are of sound mind and capable of taking responsibility for your own actions and that you can enter into a legally binding agreement with us.
1.6 You have sole responsibility for determining whether your accessing and/or use of the Website is compliant with applicable laws in your jurisdiction and you warrant to us that gambling is not illegal in the territory where you reside.
1.7 You have sole responsibility in ensuring your payment/bank details and contact information are up to date at all times.
1.8 You have sole responsibility to ensure that your security details remain confidential. In any event where you are concerned that your security details are no longer confidential, you have the obligation to notify us immediately. Any transactions that have been placed by a person who is securely logged into your account will be your responsibility.

1.10 We only accept registrations and deposits from residents of Great Britain or Northern Ireland.
1.11 You should only deposit funds into your account with us from a source where you are the named account holder. In such cases where we identify that the named account holder differs from that which we hold, we reserve the right to treat any winnings arising from such deposits as void.

We also reserve the right to refuse/cancel any bet or part of a bet that is placed while a game is in progress if there is sufficient evidence that you were placing a bet with prior knowledge of an event that would affect the accurate pricing of a market – for example, betting on the first-to-score market while the first goal is being scored.
1.14 We reserve the right to void any or all bets that have been made by any person or group of persons who are acting in an attempt to defraud us. If there is any evidence of a series of bets, each containing the same selection having been placed by or for the same individual or syndicate of individuals, we reserve the right to make such bets void and suspend relevant accounts. This rule applies to both settled and unsettled bets.
1.15 Winnings will be credited to Customer’s accounts following confirmation of the final result.

You shall remain responsible for any entry fees placed into tournaments or contests that involve pools or pools-style betting where the stakes can no longer be recovered from the pool.
1.18 The reference language of the present Terms and Conditions is English. In spite of the care brought to our translations, in case of difficulty of comprehension of a clause of these Terms and Conditions, only the English version will be valid.
1.19 We reserve the right to suspend or close your account and void all settled and unsettled bets in the event that you open more than one account.
1.20 Bets will only be accepted up to the advertised start time. Any bet that is inadvertently accepted, which includes an event after its start time,unless prior authorisation is given, the bet will be cancelled. If any portion of a multiple bet is inadvertently accepted without prior authorisation then all parts of that multiple bet will be cancelled.
1.21 Multiple bets that combine different selections within the same event are not accepted where the outcome of one affects or is affected by the other. If such a bet is taken in error, the bet will be cancelled.
1.22 We do not accept responsibility for any typing, human or palpable errors that lead to obvious price errors. In all such cases bets will be deemed void.
1.23 We do not accept responsibility for damages or losses deemed or alleged to have resulted from or been caused by the website or its content including without limitation, delays or interruptions in operation or transmission, loss or corruption of data, communication or line failure, any person’s misuse of the site or its content, or any errors or omissions in content.
1.24 In relation to any sports betting transactions placed through the Services, other than as may be set out in relation to specific markets under the Betting Rules, for any one calendar day (00:00:00 – 23:59:59) the maximum aggregate winnings shall be no greater than £100,000.00 or the equivalent amount in Your chosen currency. Please note that these restrictions apply regardless of stake. Winnings will usually be paid without You needing to make a claim. If You believe that You have not received any winnings due to You then You should notify us as soon as possible and provide evidence for Your claim.

1.25 The minimum amount for a bet is £0.10p unless otherwise stated on the website.
1.26 We reserve the right to change odds and information displayed on the website at any time and without notice. We will take reasonable care to ensure the accuracy of this information but information is presented as a guide only. Prices displayed on the website are indicative only and are not binding until a bet has been confirmed by us. In the event of any particular information (score, time of game etc) being incorrect we assume no liability for this. Please refer to our betting rules for information on how we settle individual markets.
1.27 The website will at all times show records of recent bets placed, results and account activity. We recommend that you keep independent records of all of the transaction information, games rules, cancellation rules, and payment methods in order to avoid any future misunderstandings.
1.28 All bets will be processed once the bet has been placed and the acceptance confirmed.

1.32 We consider these rules to be fair. Should you need any advice regarding these rules, please contact email@example.com
1.33 If you wish to make a formal complaint about our services you should first contact our Customer Services department using the contact us form on the website, via email, or by telephone or messenger contact
We will respond as quickly as possible and in all cases, we strive to ensure that all customers are responded to within 48 hours.
Our response will include the name of the person who will be handling your complaint and a full record of the correspondence will be tracked, including our operator login credentials who has provided any response to you.
If you do not believe our resolution to your complaint to be fair and transparent then you are free to request for the complaint to be escalated to a member of our Senior Management team who will personally review your complaint and make a final decision.
Should you still be of the opinion that our resolution is not fair and transparent then the complaint is escalated to a “dispute” and can be referred to independent adjudication service IBAS.
We give our commitment to pursuing an amicable solution to all disputes. All disputes and the resolution of these disputes will be reported to the Gambling Commission on a quarterly basis.
1.35 Copyright in the information displayed on this website is the property of Satellite Information Services Limited (“SIS”) and/or its licensors. This information is intended for personal use only and may not be displayed in public, broadcast or used for any commercial purpose without the express written consent of SIS. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the information is accurate, SIS accepts no responsibility for any use made of the information provided on this website and excludes all liability in respect of any loss suffered by any person arising directly or indirectly from use of the information.
1.36 We are required by our licence to inform you about what happens to funds which we hold on account for you, and the extent to which funds are protected in the event of insolvency.
We hold customer funds separate from company funds in a Segregated Fund Account with Metrobank. This means that steps have been taken to protect customer funds but that there is no absolute guarantee that all funds will be repaid. Customer funds are kept in accounts separate from business accounts but they would form part of the assets of the business in the event of insolvency.
This meets the Gambling Commission’s requirements for the segregation of customer funds at the level: not protected
1.37 Any changes to these Terms and Conditions will be displayed on your next login to this website prior to these changes taking effect.

4.1 We realise that for some Customers gambling might become a serious problem and for such Customers we offer a self-exclusion option for a period from six months up to five years, as per a Customer’s request.
If you wish to self-exclude, please either contact Customer Services specifying the period you wish to be self-excluded for, or choose the “Self-Exclude” option found within your “My Account” section of this website. If you choose to contact Customer Services, kindly note that it may take up to 24 hours to process your request.
If you choose to contact Customer Services, kindly note that only upon a clear “self-exclusion” request will your account be suspended for the agreed time. Otherwise, all accounts will be “closed” and can be reopened at any time upon a Customer’s request. Please read through our Responsible Gambling guide for more information.
If a self-exclusion has been requested by contacting the Customer Support, the account will be closed for 12 months unless explicitly stated otherwise. Any self-exclusion may, on request, be extended for one or more further periods of at least 6 months each.
4.2 Goodwin Racing takes its social responsibility extremely seriously and follows the Gambling Commission of Great Britain’s code to the letter to make sure that effective procedures are in place for self-exclusion. We take all reasonable steps to prevent self-excluded individuals from participating in gambling. Furthermore, the company has the following procedures in place in order to manage self-excluded individuals:
a. A register of those excluded (name, address, membership and any other account details);
b Our staff are trained to effectively administer the systems; and
c The removal of access from those persons found to have attempted to gamble on the services;
4.3 We will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure compliance with any self-exclusion. We implement reasonable checks and safeguards to ensure that whilst you are self-excluded you are not sent marketing material about gambling from us and you cannot access our services.
You accept that we have no responsibility or liability whatsoever (including in respect of any losses you may incur) if you continue to gamble with us, in particular where you have sought to circumvent a self-exclusion via additional accounts; or where you have changed any of the registration details (which would also include if you register an account by altering certain details).
All self-excluded individuals found to be either attempting or having perpetrated such acts to open an account that could not be practically stopped at the time will have any winnings forfeited and all bets voided. The company treats such instances where an individual wilfully construes to subvert the account opening process having self-excluded extremely seriously and will take all necessary action including legal action to protect itself and the individual in order to mitigate harm.
We would urge anyone who believes they have a gambling problem to seek help from agencies such as:
And if you wish to self-exclude from all gambling companies licensed in Great Britain by the Gambling Commission who have signed up to the service, visit GAMSTOP.
4.5 Once you are self-excluded with GAMSTOP you will not be allowed to gamble with us until your GAMSTOP self-exclusion is no longer active, in accordance with GAMSTOP’s terms.
Your GAMSTOP self-exclusion may take a number of days in order to become active with us once you register with GAMSTOP – you should ensure that the details you use to register with GAMSTOP are the same as those details registered on your account with us.
Unless your details registered on your account with us match exactly the details you registered with GAMSTOP, your self-exclusion may not be active with us.
We implement reasonable checks and safeguards to ensure that whilst you are self-excluded via GAMSTOP you cannot access our services. Consequently, we cannot be held liable to you or any third party if you are able to continue to gamble on our website or mobile and tablet applications.
You accept that we have no responsibility or liability whatsoever (including in respect of any losses you may incur) if you continue to gamble or are able to gamble with us where:
– you have sought to circumvent a GAMSTOP self-exclusion via additional accounts;
– you have changed any of the registration details (which would also include if you open up an account with substantially the same information, albeit inputted into the registration form in a different way);
– if you continue to gamble with us between your self-exclusion registration with GAMSTOP and us receiving notification and applying such self-exclusion on our services;
– where you have registered a new account when the GAMSTOP service is unavailable, inaccessible or degraded for whatever reason;
– where you have sought to take advantage of the GAMSTOP service being unavailable, inaccessible or degraded; or
– for any other reason outside of our reasonable control, including where the operating systems utilised by GAMSTOP fail to properly and/or in a timely manner identify you and/or your online accounts as subject to self-exclusion when you attempt to use our services.
