Ban CREDIT card use for gambling sites – no brainer

Comment 6th August 2010

Ban CREDIT card use for all types of gambling sites, allowing only debit card registration.

Why does this matter?


I like a flutter as much as the next chap but I've seen first hand how addictive online gambling can be. Received wisdom, common sense, whatever you want to call it tells us we should only bet with what we can afford to lose. The fact that people are able to register credit cards on their gaming accounts (presumably because their bank accounts hold insufficient funds) and then pay high levels of interest on their losses is fuelling a circle of misery for many addictive gamblers and their families.

I could go into far more detail but I really think this idea is a no brainer. So let's see if the government are really listening…
