Gambling Act occasional use notice
What is an occasional use notice (OUN)?
Betting operators can use an OUN to provide betting facilities at a specific venue. With this notice, a full betting premises licence is not needed.
The betting facilities must be provided:
- at genuine sporting events
- at venues such as point-to-point racecourses and golf courses for major competitions
- within the boundaries of the identified venue
- on a specific date
The event must be temporary or infrequent.
Notices may not be used for more than 8 days in a calendar year for a specific venue.
The person administering the gambling under the notice must have a Gambling Commission operating licence (that is, be a licensed bookmaker).
If you wish to apply for an OUN, please contact us.
