Paddy Power parent Flutter Entertainment to ban credit card betting in Ireland

Flutter Entertainment, owner of Paddy Power, Betfair and Sky Bet franchises, will ban credit card betting in Ireland from the beginning of April.

The move, which has already been made in Britain, comes before government plans to establish a gambling regulator. Flutter will also stop “whistle to whistle” advertising for sports events broadcast live on Irish TV before the watershed of 9pm.
