Amusement with prize machines
Our licensing service is delivered by Peterborough City Council.
Under the Gambling Act 2005 a Licensed Premises Gaming Machine Permit applies to premises with an alcohol licence (Licensing Act 2003 on-premises) that also serves alcohol without the requirement that it accompanies food. A pub, restaurant or hotel with a bar will be eligible to apply for this type of permit, but hotels and restaurants that serve alcohol only with food will not.
Section 282 of the Act provides an automatic entitlement to make two gaming machines (of categories C or D) available for use in alcohol licensed premises. To take advantage of this entitlement the Premises Licence Holder (under the Licensing Act 2003) must give us notice of their intention to make gaming machines available for use, and pay the prescribed fee.
We may issue Licensed Premises Gaming Machine Permits for any number of Category C or D machines in licensed premises. Where a Permit authorises making a specified number of gaming machines available in particular premises, this will effectively replace (and not be in addition to) any automatic entitlement to two machines as described earlier.
Permit holders must comply with the Gambling Commission gaming machine permits codes of practice. Compliance is a condition of the Permit - failure to do so could result in revocation of the Permit.
