UK Gambling Commission considers credit card ban

UKGC issues call for information on risky gambling

The UK Gambling Commission has launched a request for evidence on the issue of gambling online with credit cards.

The call for information was issued through an invitation to members of the public, gambling businesses and other stakeholders can provide their views to the Gambling Commission’s website.

UK Gambling Commission is considering a credit card ban.

The Gambling Commission has been vocal about the risks to customers gambling with money they don’t have, or with borrowed money. It is in light of this that it now seeks to determine if restrictions, including a possible outright ban would be necessary to limit harm to customers.

Paul Hope, an executive director at the Gambling Commission, said: “We are exploring measures that could help reduce the risk of harm to consumers who use their credit cards to gamble online, and to those who play on all Category B machines. We want consumers, gambling firms and other interested parties to have their say and provide evidence that will help us make gambling safer.”

The Commission said last year in its advice to government that it wanted to explore player protection options further. Those options include tracking play, using time and monetary limits and alerts, and communicating messages about gambling safely. The Commission also said it wants to hear about industry efforts to evaluate harm prevention measures.
