Bingo Halls

Bingo is believed to have been introduced to the UK in the 18th Century and is game of equal chance.

It is not defined by the Gambling Act 2005 but generally the game is played in the same way throughout the UK and the Act regulates it.

Bingo has declined in popularity over recent years and is considered a softer type of gaming.

It can take place remotely (online) or non-remotely (in bingo halls or clubs).

Bingo venues are also permitted to provide a number of gaming machines of differing categories as part of their offering.

Those offering bingo facilities are likely to require an operating licence, personal management licences and premises licence.

It is advisable to seek legal advice before offering any form of gaming.
