Due to the impact that Coronavirus is having, we have had to reduce our phoneline opening hours.

Our phonelines are open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 10 am and 4 pm.

You can use the contact us service to get answers to common questions or send us a contact request.

If gambling problems are affecting you or those close to you, support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through GamCare. You can call them free on 0808 8020 133 or go to gamcare.org.uk.

Gaming machine technical standards

These standards are our requirements with respect to game features, display notices and general machine operation, including metering.

Gaming machine technical standards can be downloaded for each category of machine:

Operators or end users should not rely upon these standards as a measure of reliability, quality or minimal security standards. 

These standards permit equivalence between different types of technology and do not specify proprietary products or technologies. Testing regimes for these standards will permit equivalent international standards (ISO). 

The technical standards are not intended to limit game content or the use of new technological development provided that the objectives of the standards are met.
