Revolut Blocks Credit Card Casino Deposits In Ireland
« on: February 20, 2022, 02:29:17 PM »
 Revolut, which is an online payment system, announced it is blocking credit card deposits to gambling sites in Ireland. The UK and Ireland generally have an imposed ban on card payments, but casino players apparently circumvented it by using contactless apps like Revolut.
In response Revolut developed a technology that detects when the banking app was funded with a credit card and blocks the payment in case the customer in question is trying to use it to deposit to an online casino.
This decision was made after people aiding gambling addicts called for more stringent measures and described Ireland as the “Wild West” in regards to gambling legislation.
Other payment processors will also likely do the same, for better or worse.
