Establishing premises authorisation

Your public register of gambling premises will confirm whether a licence has been granted. A copy of the licence must be available for inspection.

Qualifying alcohol licensed premises are entitled to two gaming machines of category C or D upon notification to the licensing authority. A gaming machine permit is required if there are more than two category C or D gaming machines sited (see part 26 of the Guidance to licensing authorities).

Clubs, miners’ welfare institutes, and commercial clubs require a club machine permit for gaming machines to be sited within their premises.
