Stake and prize limits for equal chance gaming

What are the limits?

Q:  I read in the trade press that there have been a number of recent cases of breaches in the stake and prize limits for poker in pubs in the North West of England.  Can you remind me of the limits?

A:  or all equal chance gaming, such as poker, a person may not stake more than £5 in any one game.  You cannot charge customers for participating in the poker, nor take a levy or rake from the stake.  All the money must go back to the players as prizes.   

With poker, the aggregate amount that can be staked on any day on games must not exceed £100 in total, and the maximum amount or value of any prize to be won on any game of poker cannot exceed £100.
