How to apply

If your premises is licensed to sell alcohol for consumption on the premises, you have an automatic entitlement to have one or two category C or D gaming machines.

We'll need to know:

  • how many gaming machines you want and whether they are category C or D machines
  • your details (as premises licence holder)

  • if you want a receipt for your notification


You can find out about restrictions on gaming machines in alcohol licensed premises in our guide to applying for gambling act licences.
