Coronavirus support and advice

A club machine permit entitles clubs to offer up to three in total, of any combination of category B4, C or D gaming machines (see annex 1 for  machine categories).

If you are a members club and also wish to offer facilities for equal chance gaming and prescribed gaming, please see the section on club gaming permits.

You will need to apply for a permit under the new act prior to the expiry of your existing registration.

Providing you submit your application before the existing licence expires you will qualify for continuation rights, meaning you will be able to continue offering gaming facilities until your application is resolved.

The new permit will last for ten years and a renewal fee will apply at the end of this period. Holders of this type of permit will also be required to pay an annual fee to the licensing authority.

How much does it cost?

For further information on costs, please see our licensing fees page.
