Great British Gambling Tax Laws

Since 2011 punters in the UK have not had to pay tax on any winnings that they gain through gambling, as the government scrapped the duty that collected 6.75% from bookmakers – a tax that was passed on to customers by bookmakers through a 9% charge on winnings. This means that any money that you make in the United Kingdom is 100% yours to keep.

Recommended Payment Methods

This might sound boring and predictable, but there is only one method that we would 100% recommend for all punters in the UK, and that method is the credit card or debit card. These are the simplest to use and allow money to go straight into or out of your account in seconds. Other countries are better off served using e-wallets and suchlike for legal reasons, but gambling is completely legal in the UK, so there is no need to be concerned when using a credit or debit card.
