Members' clubs may apply for a club gaming permit which allows them to provide up to 3 machines of categories B3A, B4, C or D and also to permit equal chance gaming (without the stake and prize limits that apply to exempt gaming), and certain games of chance. Commercial clubs cannot apply for a club gaming permit.
The fee for each of these permits is £200, or £100 for holders of club premises certificates under the Licensing Act 2003. There is an annual fee of £50.
Club gaming permits are issued for a period of 10 years.
