Licensed Premises Gaming Machine Permits

Licensed Premises Gaming Machine Permits apply to premises with a Licensing Act 2003 on-premises alcohol licence. There is no prescribed limit on the number of machines, but applicants must specify the number they are applying for.

How do I apply for a permit?

Applying for a notification of two machines or less

Alcohol licensed premises have an automatic entitlement to make up to two category C or D machines available for use without requiring a permit.

Complete the Gaming Machine Permit - new, transfer and variation application form and send this with the relevant payment. Download the Current List of Gambling Fees for pricing information.

I am the new licence holder of a licensed premises. Do I need to apply for a new notification of two or less gaming machines or will the current notification that is in place be sufficient?

Complete the Gaming Machine Permit - new, transfer and variation application form and send this with the relevant payment. Download the Current List of Gambling Fees for pricing information.

Applying for a permit for three or more machines

Licensed premises wishing to make available more than two category C or D machines must apply for an Alcohol Licensed Premises Gaming Machine Permit.

An application may not be made if a premises licence, issued under the Gambling Act, is already in effect at the premises.

Where a permit authorises a specified number of gaming machines in particular premises, this will effectively replace, and not be in addition to, any automatic entitlement to two machines. You must complete the Gaming Machine Permit - new, transfer and variation application form and send this with the relevant payment. Download the ‌Current List of Gambling Fees for pricing information.

How much will the permit cost?

You will have to pay for the application fee.

There is no annual fee for two or less gaming machines, but you will have to pay an annual fee for three or more machines. The first annual fee is due 30 days after the permit is granted. Subsequent annual fees are due on the anniversary of the granting of the permit.
