To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether automated teller machines authorised to be placed in casinos licensed under the Gambling Act 2005 will be permitted to dispense cash from credit card accounts. (193866)

A customer may obtain cash from an automated teller machine (ATM) in casinos by means of a credit card. A customer may not use a credit card to gamble at any gaming table, gaming machine or betting machine, or to purchase gaming chips.

The Gambling Act 2005 (Mandatory and Default Conditions) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 attach a condition to all types of casino premises licence that any ATM made available shall be located in a place that requires any customer who wishes to use it to cease gambling at any gaming table, gaming machine or betting machine in order to do so.
