What do we do?

We work with other agencies and licence holders to promote the three licensing objectives, which are:

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

We are responsible for:

  • issuing premises licences for the provision of gambling activities
  • issuing permits for unlicensed family entertainment centres, club gaming, club machines, licensed premises gaming machines, and prize gaming
  • issuing provisional statements
  • receiving and endorsing temporary use notices
  • receiving occasional use notices
  • registering small lotteries.
