Q: I currently provide three category C gaming machines at my premises under a Licensed Premises Gaming Machine Permit and have been informed by the Licensing Authority that it is subject to conditions, which are not displayed on the permit itself, is this correct?
A: You should be aware that a number of conditions are automatically attached to such permits and the Gambling Commission has issued a Code of Practice for premises with an alcohol licence, which will assist you. All gaming machines must be positioned so that they can be supervised during their use and this may be achieved by designating responsibility to particular staff members or by other means such as via CCTV. You should also be aware that if you have a cash machine at the premises, all gaming machines must be placed so that anyone playing the machine must stop if they wish to obtain cash. As you are providing category C machines, whilst the implementation of a specific age verification policy regarding the gaming machines is not a condition of the permit, you must ensure that under age gambling is prevented.
