5 .         Contracts relating to prescribed gaming or betting may be enforced etc.

                Subject to the provisions of an Act specified in the Schedule or to any prescribed provision relating thereto, where in the course and for the purposes of prescribed gaming or prescribed betting a person makes a lawful bet with any other person the person making that bet —

            (a)         shall be deemed to have made a contract in the terms of the bet with the person with whom he has made that bet; and

            (b)         may sue that other person and be sued by that other person in any court of competent jurisdiction on that contract in like manner as a party to a contract which had not arisen out of or in connection with gaming or betting might have sued,

                and that contract shall not be deemed to be illegal or void by reason only that it arises out of or in connection with gaming or betting, and effect may be given to the judgment given in the proceedings.
