Appeal against a decision made about your licence or application

If we make a decision about your licence or an application for a licence, we will let you know the reasons why and the steps you can take to appeal if you are unhappy with our decision.

You can appeal against a decision about your gambling licence if:

  • your application for a licence is turned down
  • your licence is suspended or revoked
  • you receive a fine or warning
  • there are changes to your licence conditions.

You normally have to pay a fee to appeal (opens in a new tab). This fee will be refunded if you win your case.

If we have given you a final decision and you are not satisfied with it, you can appeal to the HM Courts & Tribunals Service (opens in a new tab), which is an independent body.
