    Thought they couldn't open Good Friday, they were looking to change the rules on Easter Sunday

    close Good Friday, Easter Sunday...and Christmas day by law.

    Not sure if any changes have been made for this year, they were looking to change the Easter Sunday rule esp with so much racing on that day.

    Confirmed as stated:
    Closed Friday and Sunday.

    isn't that a bad and old fashioned idea since some people don't believe in god and so on?

    Yes, but people only care for the few days then move on with their lives before they are motivated to lobby for a change of law.

    The fact that we can ring them up on our phone or place a bet online makes a nonsense of the law.
