“The Gambling Commission has today confirmed that there will be a ban on gambling businesses allowing customers in Great Britain to use credit cards to gamble.
The ban will be effective from 14th April 2020. The Gambling Commission press release states that the ban will “…apply to all online and offline gambling products with the exception of non-remote lotteries …”
The Gambling Commission chief executive said: “We realise that this change will inconvenience those consumers who use credit cards responsibly but we are satisfied that reducing the risk of harm to other consumers means that action must be taken… But we will evaluate the ban and watch closely for any unintended circumstances for consumers.”
