From 1 December 2020, we will no longer be authorising gambling on any of our credit cards.
Why this change?
Around the world, changes have been made to limit the use of credit cards for gambling. We believe these measures make sense, and help address some of the harms associated with gambling transactions on credit cards and help prevent problematic credit card debt.
The Australian Banking Association has renewed a discussion with its members, including us, about taking steps to prevent harm to customers. This means many other banks are also taking steps to limit gambling on credit cards.
You can still gamble with your own money, such as via your Visa Debit card.
Gambling and our Responsible Banking Policy
Under our Responsible Banking Policy, we don’t lend money to the gambling industry including casinos, online gambling operators or businesses that derive revenue directly from poker machines or sports betting. So not authorising gambling on credit cards is an extension of our existing lending policy.
It’s what our customers want
Our research shows the majority of our customers believe that credit cards should not be used for gambling. And as a customer owned bank, our customers’ opinions are a big part of our decision making.
