This system will be retired on the 01 February 2021 and replaced with the new Public register (link opens in a new window).
We publish the names of all companies and individuals who hold, or have applied for, operating licences in Great Britain.
We also publish the names of companies or individuals whose licences have lapsed, been revoked, forfeited, expired, suspended or surrendered in the last three years.
You can download your search results as either XLSX or JSON.
If a licensee is, or has been, subject to a regulatory sanction they are also listed on the regulatory action page of this website.
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
