gambling and credit history

Thu Nov 01, 2012 8:49 am

hi all, does anyone know if online gambling/arbing affect your credit check in UK when you use debit/ credit cards as a deposit method. I google it but answers aren't clear. Some people says it does some says it doesn't.

No, unless you get credit accounts at the bookies.

You might see a search from some UK bookies on your credit report but this is just a ID verification search. This is the method they use to verify your ID and why Ladbrokes, WH etc will rarely ask for your ID. Only you can see these searches - they are not visible by lenders.

Probably not but it wouldn't be far fetched if using a credit card for gaming did have an effect on your credit rating as they would identify you as a gambler. You could be charged though if you use a credit card both by the gaming company and the provider.

Using Moneybookers is more efficient and in my opinion safer. You can also use your debit/credit card to fund you Moneybookers account and perhaps this is not identified as a gaming transaction. There could still be charges though by the credit card provider.

Thanks for reply.

Moneybookers is the best option and I know this but what to do if bookmakers are not MB friendly? How to cash out bonuses from them?

Take a look at their other payment methods and see what they'll accept. Some accept Paypal.

Some bookies allow you to deposit via Paysafe and cash out using MB. Neteller is also an option.
