Gambling License

The Gambling Control Act (Business and Professions Code section 19800 et seq.) requires an owner of a gambling enterprise to apply for and obtain a state gambling license.

Background investigations are conducted by Bureau Licensing staff on applicants to determine whether they are suitable to hold a state gambling license. Suitability is determined by a number of factors including, but not limited to, the applicant's honesty, integrity, general character, reputation, habits, and financial and criminal history. Applications may be obtained through the forms link below or from the California Gambling Control Commission (Commission).

Each applicant and spouse who has a community property interest in a gambling establishment must complete and submit an application for a state gambling license along with a $500 non-refundable application fee to the Commission. In addition, each applicant and spouse who has a community property interest in the gambling establishment must complete and submit the applicable supplemental background information package along with a deposit in a sum of money that, in the judgment of the Chief of the Bureau, will be adequate to pay the anticipated investigation and processing costs, in accordance with Business and Professions Code Section 19867.
