UKGC is considering whether to ban the use of credit cards for gambling stating people should only gamble with money they actually have.

It is currently only a proposal and the UKGC want to explore the option before making a decision in case it encourages the use of payday loans.

Out of the 9 million people who gamble online in the UK 10-20% use a credit card.

Whens the pushback from the gaming companies going to start? Never seen an industry put with so little fight in it.

Its not hard to get a payday loan with shit credit in the uk, not hard to get 6 in a week with shit credit if you really want them tbh.

More pompous virtue signalling BS nannying from the twattos at the UKGC. This of course all ties in with eventually telling everyone based on merit whether they're permitted to gamble, and of course as mentioned, there are numerous ways around it, so it's all a complete waste of time.

They're trying so hard to tie everything into a neat little bow. Does it matter if it's my money on credit or otherwise, it's mine to spend how I see fit.

Bunch of do-gooder bellends :mad:
