The odd flutter here and there will probably not be noticed. Any large wins (usually over £500) should also have been declared and paid to your IP. However, if gambling led to your debt in the first place therecould be an issue. What sort of amounts are we talking ?

It will be ok ... hopefully the regularity of it will not even show up and they won't raise any concerns.

If you feel that your allowances are tight and have led you towards gambling then ensure during the review each of your allowances are reviewed and where necessary seek an increase. Try not to let the gambling take hold on a regular basis if you can.

How much have you been gambling - what sort of sums?

This could be a breach of your IVA terms so I would suggest that you stop gambling.

£40-£50 in total or each time you play?

Hopefully it won't be an issue, but if its regular amounts I would query where the funds are coming from to pay for it?
