Private Casino Gaming

Private casino gaming may take place in two sets of circumstances.

  • Domestic gaming in a private dwelling, on a domestic occasion.
  • Residential gaming in a hostel, hall of residence or similar establishment (but not on premises operated as a trade or business) provided that the majority of those taking part are residents.

No charge may be made for participation in private gaming (and that includes an entrance fee or other charge for admission), nor may any amounts be deducted from stakes or prizes. Private gaming may not be provided in any place to which the public have access, and no profits may be made from it, regardless of the purpose to which they may be put.
