Bingo in clubs and alcohol licensed premises

Bingo is a class of equal chance gaming, it is permitted on alcohol licensed premises, and in clubs and miners' welfare institutes.

If the bingo played during any seven day period exceeds £2,000 (either in money taken or prizes awarded), all further games of bingo played over the next year will require an operating licence.

The Code of Practice for gaming in clubs and premises with an alcohol licence is available from the Gambling Commission Website.
