Gambling licence and permit

We issue licences to provide facilities for gambling, such as bingo, betting and amusement arcades.

We also issue permits for machines in pubs and clubs and register small-scale lotteries.

We work closely with the Gambling Commission. They regulate gambling on a national basis by licensing operators for the management and conduct of gambling. In addition they issue personal licences to key operational functions within gambling businesses, such as finance directors and security managers.

Further information is available from the Gambling Commission website.
