Adult Gaming Centres
Adult Gaming Centres (AGCs) are age restricted gaming areas containing gaming machines with high stakes and large jackpots. They provide customers with a leisure activity and are an invaluable source of income for the business.
AGCs are governed by the rules and regulations of the Gambling Act 2005 and need to meet the three main Objectives, which are: to protect children and other vulnerable people, to prevent gambling being a source of crime and disorder, to ensure gambling is conducted in a fair and open way.
Every employee over the age of 18 has a responsibility to ensure all AGCs are operated to meet these Objectives, whether they are directly involved in AGC operations or not.
