Q: I have a large group of customers who come and play bingo in my pub on a Sunday afternoon. I have taken a look at the Gambling Commission Guidance on exempt gaming in pubs but I am not clear on the maximum stakes and prizes allowed for bingo.
A: Players can stake a maximum of £5 per game. So if for example a card costs £1, the player cannot purchase more than 5 cards. The maximum aggregate in stakes or prizes in any seven day period is £2000. If the £2000 limit is breached the Gambling Commission must be notified as soon as possible.
