What gambling businesses must do
Licensed gambling businesses must display that they are licensed and provide a link to our public register.
On our public register, you can see what type of activities gambling businesses are allowed to offer and if we have taken any regulatory action against them.
You can also see:
- their address
- website domain names
- trading names
- current licence status.
If a gambling business does not have a Gambling Commission licence
Any gambling business operating without a Gambling Commission licence is acting illegally and as a result:
- we may take action against the operator
- the businesses’ payment facilities may be withdrawn by major payment systems organisations such as MasterCard, PayPal and Visa.
If you think a business is offering gambling illegally, report your concerns to us.Previous page
