Hi!
A group of school mums are going to the bingo for a birthday celebration. We've been online to register and they have all been abke to no problems. When I register it cones up saying there is an error with my registration and to contact them. Which i have, but NO reply yet.
Then it dawned on me. Have they credit checked and seen my IVA? Bingo I guess is technically gambling so have they declined my registration due to this? I need to know as i can't turn up there with the other mums and not be allowed in!!
Has anyone come across this before?
It's a big chain company...Buzz Bingo.

No idea if you are credit checked -- can't think why you should be though !

Give them a call to see why. Bingo is a form of gambling but its controllable and not one that I have ever heard is credit checked

Don't forget you may have to declare and pay over any large windfalls - check your proposals for details - many standard clauses allow you to keep windfalls of less than £500.

My missus had no issues registering with the local Bingo club here when we were in an IVA, hope it is nothing and you can go out and have some fun (and win a few bob - less than £500 though, just so you get to keep it all)
