HelpWhere a licence is shown as active, this indicates that the licensee holds a licence that they are able to operate under.
HelpThis licence allows you to provide facilities for betting only by means of a telephone or by email (in circumstances where bets taken are manually processed) up to a maximum annual gross gambling yield of £550,000. If bets are automatically processed by gambling software, or where any other means of remote communication is used to provide facilities for betting, or if your annual gross gambling yield exceeds £550,000, a remote general betting (standard) operating licence will be required though you may not necessarily have remote gambling equipment based in Great Britain. Find out more about types of betting licence.
HelpA status of active means that the operator is currently using this trading name.
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
