Guidance for Operators and Licensing Authorities

Government proposals to increase the maximum stake for category B3 gaming machines, that is machines with a maximum stake limit of £1 and a maximum prize limit of £500, and a recalibration of B3 gaming machine entitlements for adult gaming centres (AGCs) and bingo clubs have now been approved by Parliament. These measures will come into force on 13 July 2011.

Copies of the two final Statutory Instruments will appear here shortly.

The Government and the Gambling Commission have produced a guidance note to bring the changes to the attention of operators and licensing authorities and explain the principles underpinning the new premises entitlement and other provisions.

These measures follow a public consultation which closed on 25 January 2011
