Gambling codes of practice - consolidation for all forms of gambling

In order to help you determine premises applications and when inspecting premises we have brought together all the gambling codes of practice in one place.

This contains the associated codes of practice as provided within Part II of Licence conditions and codes of practice (LCCP). 

The codes specify a number of requirements related to social responsibility issues and these may be of particular interest where you are concerned about, for example, protection of the young and vulnerable. 

The codes also apply to situations in which gambling is being offered without an operator’s licence from the Gambling Commission. For example, equal chance gaming and gaming machines in clubs and premises with an alcohol licence (see sections B and C).

Codes of practice included in this consolidated version

  • Code of practice for equal chance gaming in clubs and premises with an alcohol licence
  • Code of practice for gaming machines in clubs and premises with an alcohol licence
