Working together

In relation to illegal machine supply, the Gambling Commission has acted with HMRC and/or the police and the local authority to seize illegal machines.

Providing information to the Gambling Commission

There is a requirement for those manufacturing and supplying gaming machines to be licensed by the Gambling Commission, as well as those involved in certain aspects of machine maintenance.

Our effort is focused on the illegal supply of gaming machines. Illegal suppliers often conduct their transactions across a number of licensing authorities. Your help in supplying information about illegally sited machines helps us to take action against illegal suppliers and reduce the incidence of illegally sited machines in your area.

Please email, enter ‘Illegal Gaming Machine Supply’ in the subject line and provide:

  • the name of the manufacturer and game title
  • the stake and prize stated on the machine (if available)
  • all available contact details of the supplier
  • a photograph of the machine if possible.
