UK bans gambling on credit cards

On 14 April 2020, the UK banned gambling using credit cards. The legislation was announced in January 2020 and applies to online and offline betting. It is hoped that the change will help to prevent people with gambling disorders from building up large debts. Prior to the ban, an estimated 175,000 problem gamblers regularly used credit cards to place bets.
