PayPal allows blocking of online gambling transactions

paypal-blocking-softwareThe most popular payment service provider, PayPal, has incorporated Gamban’s blocking software into its services, giving players in the UK and US the option to pause online gambling transactions. This action covers all online gambling transactions, like the games of chance or skill. Casino games such as table games and slot machines are also included, whether they are physical or online.

PayPal‘s users also have the choice to stop transactions to gambling-related ventures, like sites that offer gambling tips, intermediaries who place bets or organized forums that make person-to-person betting possible. The payment provider went through a review of its controls and payment rules back in 2019; after its concern that its platform was being used to make possible uncontrolled online gambling.

A representative of the gambling blocking platform Gamban stated: “PayPal offering its users the option to block gambling transactions is a welcome addition to the gambling recovery toolkit. Between blocking gambling transactions at your bank and PayPal, blocking online gambling with Gamban, self-excluding yourself with Gamstop and seeking support from GamCare you’ll give yourself the best chance at recovery.”
