How do you protect children from being harmed or exploited by gambling?
All operators licensed by the Gambling Commission must have
policies and procedures in place which promote socially responsible
To protect children these should include, for example:
- checking the age of customers who appear to be, or are
suspected of being, underage
- not deliberately providing facilities for gambling in such a
way as to appeal particularly to children and young people, for
example by reflecting or being associated with youth culture
- in premises restricted to adults, refusing service in
circumstances where an adult is accompanied by a child or young

conditions and codes of practice - consolidated December 2011.
