Gambling premises


Before applying for a gambling premises licence you'll need to apply for an operating licence. These are licensed by the Gambling Commission. To apply for an operating licence visit their website.

If you already hold one you can continue with your application.

After granting the gambling premises licence, gambling facilities can then be added to the premises.

Premises that can be licensed for gambling include:

  • Adult entertainment centres
  • Betting shops/tracks
