London betting and gaming lawyers for 2005 Act Casino Licences – Ince licensing solicitors
In 2005, 16 additional ‘new style’ licences were awarded to 16 Licensing Authorities (many of which already had 1968 Act casinos). Eight of these were for large and eight for small casinos. To date, only two of the small casinos have been developed and both were with existing casino licences where the licence upgrade allowed for an additional 20 B1 gaming machines. This is partly down to the fact that small casinos require larger premises than is necessary with large casinos, in order to accommodate the full entitlement of gaming machines. To date only four of the large casinos are operating. We are experienced in the tendering process for ‘new style’ licences and can help operators who would like assistance with this matter.
