UK Gaming Industry

There are currently 126 land-based casinos in the UK, turning over 3.5 billion (2001-2). The Department of Culture, Media and Sport is responsible for the laws that regulate gambling in the UK. In order to be granted a license, the casino operator must apply through the UK Gaming Board and only in certain 'permitted' areas. Our casino locator provides you with information on all UK land-based casinos


The Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) regulates all gaming law in the UK. The Gaming Act was written back in 1968 and over the last few years its been deemed necessary to modernise the laws in order to keep pace with changes in technology and public expectations.

In 2001, the DCMS commissioned a Gambling Review to be presented by Sir Alan Budd and responded to it in March 2002 with "A Safe Bet for Success". You can follow the latest progress on the new Gambling Bill at the DCMS website

The Government have recently released 6 fact sheets concerning the latest issues of the latest gambling bill. You can read them in full here:

  1. what is in the bill?
  2. choices for adults
  3. children and gambling - a basic guide
  4. gambling in your area
  5. casinos in your area
  6. gambling on the internet, mobile telephones and interactive television

Gaming Board of Great Britain

In order to apply for a casino license, operators must first receive a Certificate of Consent from the Gambing Board of Great Britain. This is the regulatory body for all UK casinos, bingo clubs, local authority lotteries, and gaming machines. The Gaming Board ensures all licensees are 'fit and proper', that all gaming is run in accordance with the law and advises the government on recent developments to aid any changes in the law.

The Gaming Board provides the most recent guidelines and relevant forms on their website
