The UK gambling industry offers diverse forms of gambling to the public including casino games, sports-betting, bingo and gaming machines. As part of Playnation’s overall product offering, we offer some products that are regulated by the Gambling Commission. We are a responsible operator and as such we are licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission under licence numbers 000-034237-N-315677-002 and 000-034237-R-315676-002.
All of our regulated products are physically located in the UK. We do not offer any online gambling products. We comply with stringent licensing conditions designed to protect and help problem gamblers. For example there are maximum limits on stakes and prizes, and procedures are available to enable customers to have themselves excluded from premises where gambling is available.
As a general rule, the minimum legal age for gambling in the UK is 18 years old. This applies to Adult Gaming Centres operated by ourselves or by our partners/clients. Please note that the regulations do not allow any person under the age of 18 to be present in an Adult Gaming Centre, even if they are not playing any of the machines.
For a small number of people gambling may become a problem. The seriousness of the industry’s commitment to protecting and helping problem gamblers is reflected in the size of the voluntary contribution that it makes to fund gambling related research, education and treatment. In 2013-2014 the industry is expected to contribute over £6 million via the Responsible Gambling Trust.
Whilst Playnation’s business is primarily focused in family entertainment, Playnation does recognise that a part of its business is in relation to gaming machines, of which Storm SBG forms a part. Playnation is proud to support the Responsible Gambling Trust and it’s work can be found at www.responsiblegamblingtrust.org.uk.
