Did you know that it is lawful to play poker (equal chance gaming) in pubs, as long as you abide by strict rules set by the Gambling Commission.

There are limits on the stakes both for games (£5 per person per game) and for the premises (£100 per day) and rules about procedures e.g. terms of play, equipment, complaints and protecting children all of which is the responsibility of a designated person at the premises.

But be aware, stick to the rules – Penalties for non-compliance can be steep and include the review and revocation of Premises Licences.
