Gaming machine permits

We consider applications for gaming machine permits for commercial and club premises

View our joint statement on gambling

You can have up to two category C or D gaming machines in a pub, and some other licensed premises, without having a permit. But you must notify us of your intention to make gaming machines available on your premises.

If you want to offer more than two machines at your premises, you must first get a permit from us.

The Gambling Commission has information on club gaming and machine permits.
