Gambling licensing

What we do

  • grant permits for gaming machines in members' clubs and licensed premises, prize gaming and unlicensed family entertainment centres.
  • authorise the temporary use of premises for gambling
  • register small society lotteries.
 
We publish a gambling licensing policy every three years. 

Licensing objectives 

  • To prevent gambling from being a source of crime or disorder, being associated with crime or disorder, or being used to support crime;
  • To ensure that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way;
  • To protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling.
