Legacy gaming machines

Legacy gaming machines are Category B3, B4, C or D machines that were available for lawful use on premises in Great Britain on 31 August 2007 (prior to the Gambling Act 2005 coming into force) and registered with the Gambling Commission before 1 December 2007. 

Operators who have gaming machines that could potentially have legacy status, but are not registered, should contact us to discuss what action they should take.

Legacy gaming machines need to comply with the standards set out in Gaming machine technical standards - B3, B4, C and D legacy machines  – June 2007.
