Tell us about something suspicious or illegal
If you are in Great Britain and have been offered gambling by someone that doesn't appear to hold a licence, you can report this to us through our confidential reporting page as this may be illegal.
If you disagree with a gambling business about the result of your gambling transaction, or about the service you have received from them, then you should first make a complaint to them.
Types of licence
Authorises the licensee to provide facilities for single premises gaming by means of remote communication equipment that is situated entirely on the set of premises on which the gaming takes place
A non-remote licence is required for physical, land-based gambling, for example, bookmakers, betting shops, arcades and casinos.
A remote licence is required for any gambling provided to players online or by other remote means. This licence is also required if any gambling equipment is based in Great Britain.
