Ireland

The Dáil has heard that a blanket ban on the use of credit cards for online and in-person gambling is required to ensure that problem gamblers do not spend money they do not have and cannot afford.

The national lottery has moved to implement such a ban, according to Sinn Féin TD Thomas Gould, and some bookmakers are bringing forward optional bans in limited situations.

“The problem with optional bans is that they can be withdrawn as easily as they can be introduced,” he said. “If bookmakers are losing money or customers due to these bans, then where does that leave vulnerable people.”
