9 Gaming machines in gambling premises

9.1.1 - Gaming machines in gambling premises – betting

Applies to:

All non-remote general betting operating licences, except where betting is offered under a 2005 Act casino premises licence.

Social responsibility code

Compliance with these is a condition of licences; therefore any breach of them by an operator may lead the Commission to review the operator’s licence with a view to suspension, revocation or the imposition of a financial penalty and would also expose the operator to the risk of prosecution.

  1. Gaming machines may be made available for use in licensed betting premises only where there are also substantive facilities for non-remote betting, provided in reliance on this licence, available in the premises.

  2. Facilities for gambling must only be offered in a manner which provides for appropriate supervision of those facilities by staff at all times.

  3. Licensees must ensure that the function along with the internal and/or external presentation of the premises are such that a customer can reasonably be expected to recognise that it is a premises licensed for the purposes of providing betting facilities.
