Regardless of where you are based in the world, you need a licence from us if:
- you are providing facilities for gambling to consumers in Great Britain online (or through any other means of remote communication)
- any part of your remote gambling equipment is based in Great Britain.
There is a remote operating licence for each type of gambling activity you might want to provide.
You are responsible for making sure all your machines comply with the gaming machine technical standards.
The licence does not permit you to manufacture a gaming machine or gaming machine software. You will need a gaming machine technical (full) or gaming machine technical (software) operating licence to conduct manufacturing activities.
If your business supplies gaming machines or software using any form of non-remote communication (such as by uploading software to CD or memory stick), you should also apply for a non-remote gaming machine technical licence.
