Gaming machines in pubs


The Gambling Commission has published a helpful guide entitled “Gaming machines in pubs: a quick guide for premises owners”, covering machine entitlements, change of licence holder, machine requirements, sourcing machines and machines games duty. It also summarises responsibilities pursuant to the Gambling Commission’s “Code of Practice for Gaming Machines in Clubs and Premises with an Alcohol Licence” to which pubs making machines available to the public must adhere.

Both the guide and the Code of Practice can be downloaded below.
