Prize gaming permit application

If you want to offer prize gaming at your premises, and don't already have a gambling premises licence, you will need a permit.

What is a prize game?

A prize game is one where the prize is fixed, that is not determined by the number of players, the amount paid for or raised by the game, for example bingo or a whist drive.

The permit does not authorise the use of gaming machines.
