Search help

If your search does not return results try using just a single word to search (for example instead of ‘Acorn and Horsetree Betting’ just search for ‘Acorn’).

Avoid words that could apply to lots of operators. For example limited, bookmakers, London or casino.

Searching with a licence number

If you have a licence number from an operator and want to locate the public register record you will need to do the following.

A licence number is usually in the following format 000-012345-N-987654-001. You need to search for the numbers in the first block of 6 digits, removing any leading zeros where they exist. So in this example search for the reference 12345
