Personal functional licence (PFL)
If you plan to be involved in gaming or handling cash in relation to gambling at a casino you must hold a PFL before you start work.
You need a PFL if you are:
- a dealer or croupier
- a cashier
- an inspector
- a pit boss or gaming supervisor
- security staff or monitoring surveillance related to gambling activities.
It costs £185 to apply for a licence, the fee must be paid by credit or debit card online and the fee is non-refundable.
You must be 18 or over to apply for a licence.
It can take up to 8 weeks to process a personal functional licence if there are no mistakes in the application.
When you apply for a licence it is your responsibility to follow the relevant rules and regulations, it is not the responsibility of your employer.
