Remote casino operating licence

Regardless of where you are based in the world, you need a licence from us if:

  • you are providing facilities for gambling to consumers in Great Britain online (or through any other means of remote communication)
  • any part of your remote gambling equipment is based in Great Britain. 

There is a remote operating licence for each type of gambling activity you might want to provide. 

This licence allows you to offer casino games via an online casino, mobile phone, TV or other online service. This includes poker, roulette, blackjack and other casino games from our list of types and rules of casino games

This licence also allows you  to link play at terminals located in one casino premises to gaming taking place in another set of premises (for example touch bet roulette terminals in one casino linked to a roulette wheel in another casino).
