The new edition incorporates the many changes that have occurred in the fields of betting, gaming and lotteries since the previous edition in 1987, particularly now that the National Lottery and other lotteries have become part of everyday life.

The coverage of the book has been extended to include an analysis of the impact of the Internet and interactive technologies on betting, gaming and lotteries; the use of judicial review as a means of challenging decisions in the context of betting, gaming and lotteries; the National Lottery; and the civil law aspect of betting, gaming and lotteries.
