Premises licence for gambling

A premises licence allows the premises to be used for one or more licensable gambling activities. This could include bingo, gaming machines and betting.

All applications are advertised outside the premises and in the local newspaper. Local residents can object to applications to:

  • prevent gambling from becoming a source of crime or disorder in the community
  • ensure gambling is conducted fairly and openly
  • protect children and vulnerable people from being harmed or exploited

It is a criminal offence to carry out unlicensed activities and, if convicted, you could be given a £20,000 fine and a six-month prison term.
