1. Which gambling licences do we deal with?

Licensing objectives

The licensing objectives under the Gambling Act are:

  • preventing gambling from being a source of crime or disorder, being associated with crime or disorder, or being used to support crime.
  • ensuring that gaming is conducted in a fair and open way, and
  • protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling

Statement of Principles

This sets out how we propose to exercise our functions under the Act. It is reviewed every three years. The current document took effect on 31 January 2019.
