Casinos In Great Britain

There were over 140 land-based casinos in operation, when the Gambling Act 2005 came into force on 1 September 2007. This number has remained fairly stable with openings and closures more or less in balance . All, but one, current casinos in Great Britain were established under previous legislation. In addition there are a number of premises which, although licensed, are not currently operating as casinos (premises licences are issued by local licensing authorities).

The Gambling Act 2005 allowed for one regional casino and an additional 16 casinos (eight large and eight small). Government decided not to go ahead with the regional casino, and the individual licensing authorities permitted to issue 2005 Act casino premises licences are at various stages of development with their application processes (for the remaining 16 proposed casinos). The first large casino opened in the London Borough of Newham in December 2011 and others are now in development.

Enquiries concerning these licences should be made directly to the local licensing authority concerned.
