I know its been mentioned once or twice but today for the first time ever I have came across balance payment are not allowed to this merchant two diffrent sites, I know that this is due to no U.K licence but shouldn't it be up to me where I want to spend my cash, I am not back at school asking to go for a piss,

What bloody right have they got telling me where I am allowed to spend my own cash, I my eyes ewallets are a 3rd party and thats it, They should tell the U.K government to piss off, Enforcing them to block payments to sites as there not funding the corrupt U.K government & there U.K licence scam

I agree this is bad but the UK Government eventually decided against forcibly stopping payment providers from allowing deposits to unlicenced sites. Instead they left it up to them to do what they want.

Skrill/Neteller etc are choosing to block payments to unlicenced sites entirely by themselves. I guess they just want to stay completely above board. It is the gambling site that is breaking the law by accepting customers from the UK without a UK licence, and they are the one liable to prosecution here, nobody else.

FWIW I agree you should be able to spend your money wherever you want and the new UK laws suck, but I don't personally have any need to play at unlicenced sites. There are plenty enough decent licenced ones.

Is it actually illegal for a non-UKGC licensed casino to accept UK players??

And would/should it affect CM accreditation??

There is one CM accredited site which I still play at, who aren't UKGC licensed.
I can't deposit with E-wallets. But can deposit and withdraw with my Visa card.
I can also play yggdrasil games, which aren't licensed by the UKGC and blocked by all the licensed casinos

I do not know the full strength on the legal side of things, But if a casino wants to serve me than what the feck has the U.K tax man got to do with it? The reason that most casino block the U.K when they have not got a licence boils back to the games provider puting the heat on, take it MG for instance would have to have some sort of U.K license and they will not want to mess it by allowing casino thats not got U.K licence to allow us to play at the site,

I am 99% sure that there is a few sites that allowed the ygddrasil games,
