These Regulations prescribe the maximum amounts that may be staked and won in equal chance games provided in accordance with section 279 of the Gambling Act 2005 (“the Act”).
Section 279 of the Act authorises premises with an on-premises alcohol licence (a premises licence under Part 3 of the Licensing Act 2003 (c. 17), which authorises the supply of alcohol for consumption on the licensed premises), or a relevant Scottish licence (defined in section 277(c) of the Act), to provide facilities for equal chance gaming without the need to obtain further authorisation under the Act (such as an operating licence, premises licence, or a permit), providing they comply with the conditions in section 279.
One of the conditions under section 279(2) of the Act is that the arrangements for the gaming satisfy prescribed requirements in relation to limiting the amounts that may be staked or the amount or value of a prize. Regulation 2(2) limits the maximum amount that may be staked by a person in any equal chance game, except for dominoes and cribbage. Regulation 2(3) relates only to poker, and sets a limit on the aggregate amount that may be staked on poker in any one day.
Regulation 3 limits the maximum amount that may be won by a person in a game of poker.
