I shouldn't have been allowed a punt

What rubbish, they closed the account as he asked them to, and then he opened a new account with them, admittedly under the same name, I wonder if he was asked at any point if he already had an existing account.

On the logic of his argument, kiddie fiddlers would be able to sue parents for allowing children to play in parks, thus providing them with the temptation...

Whatever happened to personal responsibility? :frustrated:

Still, at least the lawyers will make a mint... :money:

Slightly more seriously, will depend as always on the small print on betting accounts & "self exclusion". Whatever happens the lawyers are laughing all the way to the bank/bookies.

Fully agree that accepting personal responsibility should stop this getting anywhere near the courts.
Trouble is every betting shop has a number of forms on the counter
Stating if you feel you have a gambling problem, complete the form and at your request you will be banned from placing any further bets

Unfortunatley the ball now appearS in their court,

As Slim said did he return any winnings err NO

When did he complain. only after losing a lot, Not a whisper when he was winning

So we now know what to do, Before you fill in your betting slip fill in the please ban me form

win win situation

Check out your local High Street, and
see if that old building (which used to
ba a Bank) is now a "Bet Fred" Bookies,
or some other type of gambling place,
and I BET there's a Cash-Point right
outside the place. There are at least
five that I know of locally.
