I haven’t gambled since nice my IVA was accepted last June. Am I allowed to have an online gambling account to have the occasional flutter on football once a week? Gambling had no impact on me getting into debt as I ever spent small amounts

Not judging but, if you have gone this long without gambling then why start again? Every penny you have spare I would have thought could be put away in a small savings account, with a guaranteed return. I know we get little relief from the constant money saving and total budgeting when in an IVA but..for me it would be a definite no brainer.

If you find yourself in difficulties later on during the IVA an online gambling account would be looked on with suspicion and, to be honest, is the way debts creep up on you unawares. Gambling is addictive. I, too, would steer clear.

A good decision Pigger, give it a few weeks and you will have enough saved for a fairly good bottle of plonk. Far more rewarding then knowing your team lost again!! :shock: :D
