Block gambling payments with your bank

Most major banks now offer the ability to limit your spending on gambling. If you are concerned that you are spending too much on gambling, you may want to consider blocking gambling transactions with your bank.

Each bank offers a different service.

Some offer a card locking or account blocking feature for gambling transactions, others offer cool off periods and some give access to GamBan licences to block online gambling. Most requests can be made online with your individual bank.

If you would like to block gambling payments, the Gambling Commission has a comprehensive list of banks and the gambling limit features they offer.
