I didn't think you were allowed to pay for the lottery by CC. Not played it in years and years mind.

Interested in knowing what Camelot get away with though.

Well I'd say 100% of people who use credit cards to gamble are problem gamblers Phil. Even me at my worst would never use credit.

Why have the lottery gotten away with it to a certain extent? 

 

I would never play it myself but I see predominantly women buying loads of them scratchcards in shops.

All positive in regards to credit cards as saves people spending £ they don't have and getting into deeper gambling holes.

I can’t actually think of a scenario when a person without a gambling problem would use a credit card to gamble ?

The Hardened drinker or drug user is the very same as the hardened conditioned gambler, they will ALWAYS find a way IF they really want to place a bet.

You don't seem a man to need credit to gamble so why would you mate?

Me too back in the day. Looking back I wish it was never allowed in the first place. 

Are you glad the credit card ban is being enforced?
