The Gambling Act 2005
The Gambling Act 2005 regulates commercial gambling in the UK, including arcades, betting, bingo, casinos, gaming machines and lotteries (except the National Lottery, which is governed by the National Lottery Commission).
The Gambling Act covers three main objectives:
- To keep gambling crime free
- Make sure gambling is fair and open
- Protect children and vulnerable adults
It covers two main activities; providing facilities for gambling and using premises for gambling. In either case, the correct licence or permit must be held. The Gambling Commission and licensing authorities manage the day to day regulation of the gambling industry.
We have experience of working within the gambling industry, from independent operators to large casinos and multiple operators. We will work with you to ensure you have the correct licence.
