Topping up your betting account with a credit card

West Australian Racing
The Gambling Commission has announced betting firms are to be banned from allowing consumers in Great Britain to use credit cards for gambling from April 14 this year

wonder how long before they bring it in here?

    ANZ are already playing god... you cant deposit to a bookie from their cards.
    you cant even have a bank account open that relates to gambline.

    I should elaborate... if you are close to your limit.. you cant deposit to a bookie using their credit cards.

    Im conscious of any gambling linked to bank accounts as im looking to upscale in the home department and dont want the bank to see my deposits so have not deposited from my bank (credit card or poli) for over a year. I use Flexipin. You buy the voucher from BP servo and deposit that way.

    smart Para... and I would suggest anyone interested in getting a home loan do the same.

    I put a self imposed ban on my credit card being used to deposit to my accounts.

    A few times at home, **** as a maggot watching Sky, I'd chase after a loss with a biggish bet in the last... and most times lose

    I think it's a good idea, works for me. I only do cash deposits to my accounts.
