Information requirements from licensing authorities

Details on the information that we require from licensing authorities.

Information about gambling-related crime

Licensing authorities are requested to send any concerns about the way in which a gambling business is being run in their local area, or suspicious gambling-related activity, to our Intelligence team.

Examples of concerns are:

  • underage gambling
  • protecting the vulnerable from gambling
  • unlicensed gambling
  • criminal activity linked to gambling.

Information should be sent by email to, or by secure means (as directed by the Intelligence team).

When sending us information, tell us the name of the person(s), business(es), or premise(s) the report is about, if known. If any person or business holds a gambling licence issued by us, use the details as they appears on our Public Registers. For premises, tell us the full address.

See our website for further information on reporting something in confidence.
